"Mount Airy Casino Resort Seeking Couples That Honeymooned Or Vacationed At Former Mount Airy Lodge"

"PARADISE, Pa., May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Mount Airy Casino Resort is seeking couples who were married, honeymooned or vacationed at the former Mount Airy Lodge as it prepares to launch "Celebrate Amore" weekend June 13 and 14 to help commemorate the days of the Poconos' heart-shaped tubs and candlelit dinners. The weekend -- which will feature the return of romance to the Poconos -- will also include an opportunity for guests to renew their wedding vows, a public wedding reception in the casino's nightclub, a bridal expo, and a Sunday champagne brunch. . ."

Wonder if I can get my parents to go. . . ?

"Wayback Machine" - Mount Airy Lodge website pages

Check out the archived Mount Airy Lodge website pages (the pages that do have images may take quite a bit of time to fully load). Some of the links on the archived pages even "work" (are archived as well). Funny, but thru the years, I never thought to see if they had a site. I wish I had.

From 1998...

More pics uploaded!

I believe I have most of the vacation pics (scanned photos and movie stills) of Mount Airy Lodge itself, and of King Henry and the Showmen, and Joey (with Thea) uploaded. But my parents just came across more 8mm movies that I'll be taking in to get moved onto DVD, so I'll have more pics "soon".

I eventually want to upload the movies too, but I've uploaded what I've done so far in case anyone drops by...

(See the links ----->)

Newly found family pics!

Well, I've always had a couple of photo albums, and I've been meaning to scan those pics for quite some time now! However, I just converted my Dad's home movies (8mm) to DVD. It's so much easier for me to just take some screen shots, and there are so many more pics to share that way.

Check out the link on the side (pics from family vacations) ---->
(more to come)

(* I wouldn't recommend viewing the slide show - the images are large and don't always finish loading before the slide show advances to the next pic. Just view them one at a time. *)

Been a while...!

Found this site with many pics of Mt. Airy Lodge, especially during it's demolition. Urban Exploration Resource.

Scroll down the page, there's four albums with many, many pics. Note the pic comments as well. Lots of folks shared their memories. Bittersweet.

(This pic is from the beginnig of the demolition.)
