Where to stay before planning your vacation to the Poconos, will be the first thing on your mind. Resorts offer the comfort of a home away from home — that’s why so many people choose to stay there.The legacy of Poconos resorts commenced in 1945 when Rudolf Von Hoevenberg opened “”The Farm on the Hill,”” a resort for honeymooners. Soon, other honeymoon resort owners followed and by the 1950’s, resorts in the Poconos became a lucrative business. There are so many resorts to choose from that one would have to make their decision carefully to ensure that it caters to the needs of all involved.Resorts at the Poconos are available for both family and couples only.
