We're On Vacation...

Hello, everyone, and greetings from the French Manor Inn and Spa in the beautiful Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania! We drove up yesterday, arriving in pouring rain at about 2:00 PM. It's been raining off and on - mostly on - since then, and the weather is much cooler than back home in Virginia, but the hotel is so nice that we don't particularly care. Here are a few pictures...

This is the main building, where the restaurant and reception desk are located...

Our suite is in the Spa Building next door, and there are two other buildings (the Maisonneuve and the Carriage House, each with a small number of rooms and suites). There are several rooms and suites in the main building, including a two-level suite in the tower (in the background in the picture above).

This is one view of our suite...

And this is another ...

There was a small fruit and cheese platter in the room when we arrived, along with a carafe of sherry and a bottle of champagne ...

And this is the view from our balcony ...

We're happy. It's quiet and peaceful, as it should be from its fairly remote location. And the food and service in the restaurant are both first-rate. The pool and hot tub are both fine, and I'll let you know about the spa tomorrow, after we have our "couples massage."

Ooh, la, la!

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow, if I can interrupt my relaxation to get around to it.

"couples massage"

Is that the one where you have the two college girls...... wait, that's something else I was thinking of.

No wonder you couldn't make it for dinner! Chris would've been having a fit if I was on a relaxing vacation and commenting on Facebook--speaking from experience, ya know?
