Before going to Bushkill for a skiing minded vacation week, I eagerly read Trip Advisor reviews of this property, mainly for knowing what to expect. So, arriving late at night and getting a Fairway Villa (which I understand is bigger than a Tree Top) was a good surprise. And seeing the spacious, cozy and well distributed rooms of our villa was certainly a table turner.
There are two bedrooms in each villa. Both are located in the lower level. Each with access to a small terrace, and each with a full bathroom. The main one had a jacuzzi. On the upper level there is a very comfortable living room, dining room and kitchen. Finally, there is a spiral staircase leading to a small cellar with two single beds. This last room was great for my cousins (two kids ages 13 and 11).
So yes, there are details. The first one is the carpet, which can only be described as pitiable. This means very, very tired and dirty. Living room furniture could use some dry cleaning, too. And maybe replacing their cushions. And there are minor things, such as scrapings in the tub. However, I don't think these details should take away three or four stars, as other reviewers have done.
This is an old fashioned resort, intended for blissful relaxation. In winter it's a good base of operations for going skiing (Camelback and Blue Mountain at 30-45 min driving distance). In summer and fall it should be breathtaking for going and hiking around.
Upon reading the activity list provided at the front desk, I felt like in that Dirty Dancing hotel, with all those quirky stuff to do. Certainly a portrait of things that are no more.
