“A stay in the mountains”
Reviewed August 1, 2006

The resort is somewhat dated on the outside, but renovations have been made on the inside. The resort is good for families with the lake and outdoor activities, but not highly recommended for honeymooners. The room had some mold/mildew issues, but the staff was very quick to clean it. In general, the staff was very accommodating. Depending on the activities you like, you may have to travel (i.e. hiking, biking, canoeing, rafting, and site-seeing) to enjoy them.

Our family stayed at Tanglwood in the Woodmont area. It is lakefront and has beautiful surroundings and sunsets. It is close to Scranton, PA. Also many local activities are available and onsight doings for the children. Family friendly.

Review of Tanglwood Resort in the Poconos

Bare Bones But Not Bad!

Our on-line reservation agent had told us that we would be next to the main building with all the amenities. We were actually about a ¼ mile hike away from the main lodge. The ad for Tanglewood lists access to the lake as an amenity. Technically this is true because the resort owns a small marina where boats can be docked. However, there is no swimming allowed in the lake at the resort’s access! We did find out that there was a public beach that one could drive to but it cost $3.00 per person, and it did not seem very appealing.

The condo was as promised: one bedroom, full kitchen, living room and full bath. The bed did not have any box springs. The mattress was on a platform. It felt like one was sleeping on the floor. The air conditioning unit in the bedroom had only one operational speed- HIGH. This was very LOUD and the room was FREEZING most of the time.

We received an inventory sheet at registration and were told to complete this sheet and return it to the office as soon as possible. The inventory sheet required the resident to count the silverware, dishes, pots and pans, glasses, sheets and towels among other items in the condo. It was definitely a ridiculous task.

After reading previous on-line reviews of Tanglwood, we were concerned about finding the interior of the condo a dirty mess. We were relived to find the condo clean and neat.

The first floor condo was actually on the basement level. There were several flights of stairs that connected with the parking level for cars. The porch was at ground level and the ceiling was not a solid piece so that the residents on the upper floor were visible while one sat on the lower level.

The restaurant was closed. The indoor pool and other amenities listed could only be accessed by driving to a local country club 7 miles away. The country club has very specific rules for dress and required reservations. We did not find the time to arrange a visit to the country club.

The outdoor pool was nice but somewhat small and shallow with no lifeguard or diving. There was a ½ hour adult swim once every afternoon. The beginning of the adult swim was announced much to the chagrin of many residents with families. No one announced the end of the ½ hour period so that was left up to the adults who were enjoying the adult swim. It was difficult to impossible to swim laps at times other than the adult swim.

We received a phone call in our condo from VRI (Vacation Resorts International) to attend a promotional meeting to hear about future plans for Tanglwood Resort. This property has timeshares. Beware of salesmen stealing your vacation time.

We stayed there this past weekend and all i can say is that is was one of the nicest places i have ever been. Our condo was clean and well kept. Despite the numerous bugs outside, there wasn't a bug problem inside. There is nothing more i can say. Whatever gripes people have had with this place it is obvious to me that they do not exist now.
