The Inn at Pocono Manor completed a $5 million renovation of the historic resort's main lodge, which originally opened 110 years ago.

Renovations include a comprehensive new floor, wall and window treatments for the building's large and original upper and lower lobbies, event and meeting rooms, the historic restaurant, the resort's popular Lamplighter Lounge, and all 190 main lodge guestrooms.

At the main lodge, new furnishings and lighting fixtures were designed to restore the character and charm of the late Victorian Era, set against a color palette of green, blue and deep burgundy. Large fieldstone fireplaces in both lobbies and in the restaurant were reopened after being closed off decades ago, once again welcoming guests.

During the renovation of the 1920s-era dining room, workers rediscovered and restored the original hardwood flooring. The large columns that define the room were transformed to help showcase the room's numerous views of the Pocono Mountains. Workers also restored and reopened the room's large stone fireplace.
