As far as vacations are concerned, the more the merrier. This applies both to the number of vacations you have and the group of people you holiday with. But as we all know, when traveling with a large group—be it a special event, a family reunion, or a corporate gathering—equally large accommodations are in order. Rather than renting a few small places and cramming as many people in them as you can, leaving everyone grumbling and uncomfortable, you can rent a 6-bedroom Split Rock vacation rental that can house a large group comfortably from us at Pocono Mountain Rentals. This has the advantage of keeping the whole group in one place, sharing the great amenities that our rentals are famous for. See our 6 bedroom Split Rock lodge rentals below for yourself!
Special Van Service
Speaking of large groups, one of the problems that usually arise when having a large gathering is that of transportation. Moving around is not always easy unless you rent a school bus. But that is hardly the right vehicle for such a luxurious vacation. This is why we offer a local van service that will get you anywhere you like in Lake Harmony, Albrightsville, Jim Thorpe, and White Haven, as well as many of the neighboring areas. Enjoy all the outdoor events and festivals you like without worrying about how to get there or getting back home to your Split Rock rentals.
Exquisite Dining Experience
If food is one of the joys you get out of life, then you’ll be happy to know that culinary delights are the focus of many dining outlets around here. From snacks to gourmet food, the dining experience is geared to satisfy every appetite. Whether you prefer casual meals at pubs and bar snacks or elegant meals in more upscale surroundings, you’ll find what you seek here. Try Nick’s Lake House for true American cuisine and delicious comfort food. For a family friendly atmosphere, you have a choice between Boulder View Tavern and Louie’s Prime Steak House.
Wine Tasting Near Split Rock Lodge
Wining and dining go hand in hand. The Poconos recently started to feature on the wine map with a fine assortment of wines that are gaining popularity all over the country. The Poconos Wine Tours gives you a first-hand glimpse at the vineyards and breweries that produce some of the famous brands you probably see in your local stores back home. Blue Ridge Estate Vineyard & Winery also offers a great experience in the world of winemaking.
No. 9 Mine and Museum
Anthracite coal is a refined type of coal distinguished with its sheen and a minimal amount of impurities. Back in the day when coal was quite popular and used more often in everyday life, anthracite coal was the most sought-after coal. It was more expensive than normal coal and was used widely in many industries. No. 9 Mine was famous for producing top-quality anthracite coal. It was opened in 1855 and immediately a whole town sprang up almost overnight next to it. The mine was quite prolific, since it tapped into a huge anthracite deposit called the Mammoth Vein. When you visit the mine today, you’ll go on a rail ride 1,600 feet high up the mountain. From there you’ll see the mule way, the miner hospital, and the mine shaft. The museum showcases original tools that were used by the miners as well as food cans and blasting equipment.
Coal is not the only thing that has been abandoned due to better and more efficient energy alternatives. Candles, too, have been replaced with electric light and are no longer a basic necessity in every household. Rather, they have become a symbol of romance and spirituality. Scented candles are making a comeback, and more and more people use them for their healing and calming effects. While vacationing in a Split Rock lodge, why not head over to 1993 Milford Rd. in East Stroudsburg to browse Pocono Candle’s wide selection of top-quality candles offered at low prices? They have all types of candles, including some you may have not even heard of before, from jar candles and votive candles to pillar candles and taper candles. They also sell electric warmers, melts, T-lites, and oils among other fascinating products.
Pocono Indian Museum
The Delaware Indians inhabited these parts for centuries, long before the Poconos became such a popular vacation destination. As the only museum that chronicles and preserves the history of those tribes, the Pocono Indian Museum does an amazing job. Open all year round except on Christmas and Thanksgiving, the museum has some very ancient tools and relics that were once used by the Delaware Indians. There’s a peace pipe that is 150 years old. You can also learn how arrowheads were made and utilized by the Indians in their hunting trips. And if you have heard about the Indian Big Foot, called “Meesing,” but don’t know what it is, this is the place to find out about it.
