There is a lower half of the hotel, with the main building and some smaller buildings, and then up in the woods about a mile there are lots of smaller chalets - LOTS.

     Interesting Features
    The main building is fairly plain from outside - the one really interesting feature there was the large indoor pool, which was round, and housed in a round building. Outside the main building, the most interesting features are the rooms. Most of them have heart shaped hot-tubs, round beds, personal swimming pools, and a general feeling of 1970's porono movie.

     History
    Pocono Gardens was originally a small family hotel, that eventually was purchased by the nearby Mount Airy Lodge, and maintained by the same management. Guests to any of the 3 hotels owned by Mount Airy Lodge could go to any of the other 2 hotels for dinner, entertainment, etc.
    Well, Mount Airy went under in the late 90's, and so did Pocono Gardens. It's been boarded up ever since, and although the nearby Mount Airy Lodge has been demolished in anticipation of a casino, nothing has happened at the Gardens...
     Media Coverage
    Blighted Pocono Gardens burns:
    July 16, 2007
    A fire forced Barrett Township Fire Company to knock down part of the main building at the abandoned Pocono Gardens Sunday night. Onlookers expressed mixed feelings as the bucket of a backhoe bit into the once thriving resort. On neighbor who declined to give his name said there has been a lot of vandalism at Pocono Gardens and the community is getting sick of it. He was glad to see the building being knocked down. Linda Carey of Mountainhome heard about the fire on a scanner and drove to the scene with her children to watch a part of history burn. “It’s a shame to see an old building and nobody does anything with it,” she said. Pocono Gardens has no electric service so that is an unlikely source of the fire. Firefighters were still on the scene at midnight. Pocono Gardens, formerly part of Mount Airy Resort, is now being proposed as a 232 housing development.
