Poconos Lodging

Welcome to the Poconos
Whether you’re searching for the best family vacations or weekend getaways for couples; you’ll be head over hills for the Poconos!

Once upon a time, long before Tastykakes and the Internet were invented, the Poconos majestically rose up under our feet. People and pets have been coming from the city and the boonies just to spend time in our northeastern Pennsylvania wonderland.

Here in the Poconos, you can do just about everything. You can relax – or race. You can roll down the river – or roll the dice at a casino. Just pick a verb: chill, escape, relax, romance, fish, hike, golf, shop, wed, party, gamble, float, glide, slip ‘n slide, paddle, row, ski, race, or spectate. You can even work if you must. We have great spaces for conferences. In the Poconos, you can do whatever you want.

Poco-­Knows: The area covers four counties: Wayne, Pike, Monroe, and Carbon. It’s 2,400 sq. miles and more than 340,000 people live in the Poconos year-­‐round. It would take about 2 hours to drive from the Southern most point to the Northern most point of the Poconos.

Jazz, Blues and Musical News from Spencer Reed

Born in the Bronx, Spencer Reed started playing jazz and blues professionally at age 18 when he first freelanced as a drummer and guitarist for a local New York band known as The Soul Distributers. In 1976 he found himself in the Poconos for a gig through an agent with New York connections. He moved to Tamiment, PA on a day’s notice, not knowing anything about the area. Now quite a fixture on the local jazz and blues scene, he performs at the annual Celebration of the Arts (COTA) that put Delaware Water Gap on the jazz map, and teaches at Camp Jazz, a summertime program for high school students who perform at COTA. Spencer also gives private lessons in guitar and drums for all age groups. He lives in Stroudsburg with his wife Nancy (a renowned jazz singer and bassist) and their daughter.
