Accommodations at Fernwood Resort feel as close to home as possible.

Take your pick from 650 exquisite lodgings at Villas at Tree Tops and Fairway®. One to four-bedroom villas are available and ideal for folks on the go, family vacations and reunions or business travelers.

Fernwood is a mixed-use property with both RCI timeshares and rentals. With more than 18,000 member families, this Pocono Mountains’ retreat is one of the largest vacation ownership properties in the Mid-Atlantic region.

Leave your notion of cramped quarters behind. The three-bedroom villa offers a spacious dining area to accommodate larger groups, a great room with additional dining space, fireplace, and comfortable seating.

Use your time as guests in this exquisite villa wisely. After a day at the pool or hiking at the nearby Delaware Water Gap, kick back and delight in the quiet or play your favorite board game.

Say yes to cooking…

A well-stocked kitchen provides guests with choices: eat-in or take-out. Plenty of counter space, modern appliances, cookware and dinnerware and a full-sized refrigerator are priceless amenities for folks who have ravenous mouths to feed. The open floor plan encourages clans to congregate and create meals together. Stop at one of the local markets to pick up groceries and seasonal vegetables and create a meal together.

No, I don’t want to cook today.

When adults say “No” to cooking, feed your hungers at Wintergreens Patio Grill, Fernwood’s signature restaurant, located within walking distance from your villa. Family-friendly dining on classic pub fare such as burgers, chicken fingers, fish, seafood and salads is a perfect op.

Bathe in luxury in the master bedroom.

Handsomely-decorated, bright and inviting are a few words that describe the layout and décor in a three-bedroom villa at Fernwood Resort. The master bedroom is equipped with a queen-sized bed, soaking tub, fireplace and sauna adjacent to the master bath.

Sliding doors conveniently-placed in the master bedroom and dining area are your gateway to a private deck and your outdoor retreat, where you’ll undoubtedly want to sip your morning beverage and appreciate the seclusion.

Four-seasons of activities for all ages

While summer is considered prime season at Fernwood Resort, you won’t clamor for activities to keep you busy year-round. An indoor and outdoor pool, an 18-hole golf course, the challenging Pocono TreeVentures, Zip Line courses, Blue Lightning and White Lightning tubing, horseback riding, paintball and a full range of planned daily activities for the entire family are available to guests.

Should you decide to venture out into the scenic Pocono Mountains, try canoeing on the Delaware River with Edge of the Woods Outfitters or hiking at the picturesque Bushkill Falls, known as the "Niagara of Pennsylvania,” one of the state's most famous scenic attractions.

A whole lotta fun making memories  

If you’re contemplating a family vacation, there’s literally something for everyone at Fernwood Resort. But most importantly, the activities you experience and share together are tomorrow’s memories.
