2015 Best of the PoconosPoconos SpaDay Spa - A tie between Shear Design Day Spa , South Sixth Street, Stroudsburg with a tremendous amount of experience and a penchant for making you feel comfortable, Shear Design is a great place to spend the day, and Ken and Company, Main St. Stroudsburg, Ken's attention to detail and the new second floor spa rooms and lounge make time here a comfortable experience.. It's the "Battle of the Day Spa's".

 


2015 Best of the PoconosDrinking water, local-not bottled - We taste tested 4 local water sources, Stroudsburg Municipal, East Stroudsburg boro water, bottled water from the supermarket, and well water from a home in Paradise Township. AND THE WINNER IS....Stroudsburg Municipal Authority. Clearly the winner (pun intended). The best taste and clarity. Odd to think that water from town could be better than your own well. They must take a great interest in the amount of chlorine and other treatments to keep the water tasting so good.


2015 Best of the PoconosKennel - Gatehouse Kennels, Airport Road, East Stroudsburg."The Pet Resort of The Poconos". If you're vacationing in the Poconos, bring your pet(s) along, drop them off at this place and expect them to feel and act like THEY'VE been on a honeymoon when you pick them up.

2015 Best of the PoconosPlace to Live - Hamilton Township Well, OK, Cherry Valley, if we must be specific. There are times and places when, if you shut out all the noise in your mind and just enjoy the view... you'll think you are in West Virginia. The rolling hills, the solitude, they way the sun comes up over the mountains in the morning. It's truly a shame to tell you about this, 'cause if Elmer's family ever decides to give up some of the estate y'all be standing right in line next to me to buy a piece.

2015 Best of the PoconosBest Health Club (Gym) We are still looking for the best Health Club or Gym in the Poconos. Vote Here.

But, we can assure you it is NOT RetroFitness on Rt 611 in Stroudsburg. While, they have put millions of dollars into bright lights and yellow paint, the managment policies and staff are not the kind of people we can suggest doing business with. Can you imagine a company that has a policy that your membership is "absolutely non-cancelable" YET, they have the right to assign your membership to any other company they choose!

Get this... the contract you sign says that you are not allowed to wear jeans into the facility or they can cancel your membership! AND, if for some reason, you end up with a partial disability, YOU CAN NOT CANCEL. (You would have to prove you are "permanently disabled".)

PoconosBest advice... just don't go there.
