The Buck Hill Inn is on Rock Oak Lane and Falls Drive in the private resort community of Buck Hills Falls, the town of Cresco, Monroe County, in the Pocono Mountains, Pennsylvania.
Buck Hill Falls Inn began in the private resort community of Buck Hill Falls as a small wooden hotel with 18 rooms in 1901. It was expanded in 1926 into the large sprawling stone complex seen today. It grew in popularity in the 1980’s and by then had 400 guest rooms, an indoor swimming pool with retractable roof, a dining hall, a formal lobby and an elegant lobby. It also had a massive covered stone porch on the north side with a view of the Pocono mountains. It was even named as one of the top ten conventions centers in the United States in its prime. Unfortunately, the Buck Hill Inn did not last and financial difficulties and other reasons brought the closure of the inn in 1991.
It was seen on the show MTV’s Fear in 2000 and allegedly the place of ghosts, 73 murders, suicides, mob visits and being built on ley lines. None of this is true and provoked many hundreds of excess visitors to the site after filming.
It is stated that the current plans in effect for the Buck Hill Inn are – “FRF has successfully subdivided the Inn Parcel to allow for the redevelopment of the site in two phases, the first of which will consist of the renovation of the former “New West Wing” into a boutique hotel (see architect’s rendering on left). The second phase will consist of the renovation of portions of the historic sections of the Inn (see architect’s rendering at bottom left). In order to move forward with the eventual renovation of the New West Wing into a boutique hotel, FRF has conveyed that parcel to an affiliated entity, Piney Road Development, LLC (“PRD”), which will be the developer of the site. For information on PRD or its plans to renovate the New West Wing, please contact either Vince Keegan or Jim Maclin, the principals of PRD.
In addition to the above, FRF’s pending plans include the creation of an initial subdivision along both sides of Golf Drive that would result in nine (9) single-family building lots of approximately one (1) acre each and a ten (10) acre parcel to house the equestrian center for the community. For information on this initial subdivision, please contact Vince Keegan.” – Buck Hill Inn Current Plans. Falls Road Funding is seeking investors if interested.
