First off, this is an older resort with lots of charm! Family owned which is nice to see. The setting is breath taking and beautiful, next to the Delaware River. The resort was clean, a bit rustic, but the beds were comfortable and food was amazing. Everyone made us feel welcome. Staff was friendly and hard working. The manager at the River Room, John, went above and beyond to make us happy. The ranger at the golf course, Jim, was great too...Funny, down to earth and full of knowledge. The golf course itself was clean, greens were smooth and scenery was outstanding. We went to the Gem restaurant, that is by the entrance, and had wonderful service and one of the best burgers I’ve ever had. The local beer on tap was so good! (I liked the Kolsh, but the Session ipa was very good too.) We will definitely be back and maybe try the glamping tents with the kids!

Hello, this was a lovely review, but I believe you mean the Shawnee Inn. This page is for Shawnee Mountain Ski area. Glad to hear you had a good visit to the area and maybe we will see you in the winter for some snow fun!

We were welcomed with freshly baked chocolate chip cookies when we crossed the bridge this morning. Hope Lodge had plenty of room to make ourselves comfortable before heading for the slopes. Shawnee MT did an excellent job of preparing the slopes, despite the overall lack of natural snow this winter!

Visited Shawnee Ski resort this past weekend with my family of 4 and another family of 4. 4 young children wanting to go snow tubing. We arrived at 1:oopm to find out the 1pm and 3pm session were already sold out. We had to wait until the 5:30pm session. There was no where to sit in the entire lodge area. So we were forced to leave and come back. In my opinion they put too many people in each session. In an hour we only went down the mountain twice and then called a quits because it was too much work. Once you got to the top of the mountain it was nothing but a sheet of ice. no one could walk. People were falling left and right. While holding a heavy tube and a 3 year old this became one of the most difficult things to do without breaking a bone. Someone injuried themself so bad that paramedics were called. They should have had those rubber mats for people to walk on to avoid injuries. Never again! It was such a waste of our day and time/1

We appreciate your feedback and will always take into consideration our guests experiences. We do limit our tubing to a certain number of people and the weekend after Presidents Day is one of the busiest times at all resorts in the Poconos. As for the ice it was a 50 degree weekend so I believe that it was probably very soft and slippery snow. We are sorry to hear if you did not enjoy your time, we do always try to make it enjoyable for everyone, even on the very busy days.

Shawnee is close to the nyc, which is a plus. Just past the Gap. Nothing real steep. Perfect for beginners and intermediates. Bunny hill is nice and wide. Tubing is also cool. Great coverage for a small mountain....I’m sure if this resort ( the whole east coast) had snow it would be a great mountain.

This was my third time going to The mountain. Parking can be a little hectic depending on how many ppl are at the mountain. There is a shuttle from the lots to the main entrance. There’s a small bridge and body of water you cross over to get to the rocket lines. There are several ticket lines to pay. Several of the activities are scheduled by times : 11a, 1p, 3p, 5p and so on. Time slots do sell out so make sure to plan accordingly. There is food and a restaurant in the lodge area (reasonably priced). There is also a shop. I have only gone tubing my times here. Tubing is a lot of fun. They usually have you wait until your time slot. Once they are ready you grab a tube and drag it to a conveyor belt that takes you to the top of the mountain. They usually have several slides open and you can pick a line. Be mindful that the more ppl the more crowded the slide areas will be ( be careful of slipping on the snow). You patiently wait your turn and down the mountain you go. Some reminders: be patient as it can get crowded, watch children on top of the mountain, double tubes are for child and adult and have fun.
