Clarification of Rates for The Inn at Pocono Manor
A clarification of the rates for The Inn at Pocono Manor has been made to the housing information download. The rate for the hotel room by itself ($115) was correct. However, if you wish to have the full breakfast buffet, it is $12 per person more ($127 for single occupancy and $139 for double occupancy). Additional breakfast coupons can be purchased for $12 inclusive per person, per day.
Kalahari Resorts' newest location opens this summer in the Pocono Mountains. Church services will be held here in a spacious ballroom with comfortable, ergonomically designed chairs.
Kalahari offers three types of guest rooms: Desert Room (two queen beds, queen sofa sleeper), Two-Room Family Suite (king bed, two queens, queen sofa sleeper, fireplace) and African Queen Suite (king, two queens, queen sofa sleeper, fireplace, family room). All rooms include microwaves and refrigerators (medium-sized). For other housing off-site, see the Festival housing information.
For dining, the resort offers three full-service restaurants, a candy and ice cream shop, coffee shop and more. Shopping is available at multiple resort retail shops and at the Crossings Premium Outlet (100 stores), only seven miles away.
Kalahari room reservations include free passes for Pennsylvania’s largest indoor waterpark—that’s 100,000 square feet under a retractable roof, on-site! The waterpark rides include Flowrider, Anaconda water roller coaster, Swahili Swirl, Lazy River, Splashdown Safari (for kids), Tiko’s Watering Hole (for toddlers) and an outdoor pool.
Additionally, the Family Entertainment Center has black light mini-golf, mini-bowling, XD Dark Ride, spa and salon, Kamp Kalahari (contests, coloring, games, crafts) and more. For other recreation, there’s horseback riding, an 18-hole golf course and more. And assorted sightseeing attractions can be taken in throughout the tristate area of Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey.
We’re also pleased to announce that seats are reserved for COGWA for the Sight & Sound Millennium Theatre’s showing of Joseph on Thursday, Oct. 1, in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
