CENTRAL PARK HOTEL
We have owned a vacation home in the area for 30 years and had no idea this hotel even existed until it was recently suggested to us by a local merchant. Since we are always up for a new (hopefully good!!) dining experience, we checked it out. What a totally unique place!!! The main dining room houses well over forty, preserved animals (check out the buffalo!!!) with another focal point being a huge, gleaming yet ancient, potbelly stove. The Central Park Hotel has quite a history in this relatively remote area of Pennsylvania known as THE GATEWAY TO BIG GAME COUNTRY. The Hotel first opened to the public in 1872 and has pretty much remained unchanged outside and downstairs. Improvements were made upstairs to accommodate guests more comfortably and some additional housing was also added to the property which has been owned by Dave and Rose Bardo since 1972. The bottom line??? It's a cool place with great service, fair prices and good food!! My hubby and I began with a lovely little loaf of delicious homemade bread. We then shared a cup of seafood bisque (tasty but a bit salty,) a juicy Delmonico steak (cooked well but a tad unevenly) and a broiled seafood combo (yummy to the very last bite.). All in all, an enjoyable evening out. Let's face it... the CENTRAL PARK HOTEL has been in business for 141 years so it MUST be doing something right. It is.
