On August 26, I attended the Grand Opening of Le Spa Foret at the French Manor Inn and Spa. The fabulous day in South Sterling began with a garden party on the back patio of the Inn. If you have never seen this spectacular sight nestled atop Huckleberry Mountain, you are deprived and must go! I would classify the view as a natural wonder.
After socializing with the other guests, we made our way to the spa entrance. The day's speakers included Genevieve Logan Reese, French Manor Inn and Spa General Manager; Alicia Quinn, Director of Public Relations for the Pocono Mountains' Visitors Bureau; and Craig Smith, Director of Public Relations and Spokesmen for NEPA AAA office. Each speaker made eloquent statements about the Inn and its long time history, which transitioned into the ribbon cutting.
Once the spa was officially open, guests were allowed to tour the stunning facilities. The ambiance and décor matches the French Chateau look of the Inn perfectly. From the tile work in the pool to the fireplace in the couples massage treatment room, the attention to detail is magnificent. The spa radiates a welcoming and comforting sensation.
If seeing the spa wasn't enough of a treat, representatives of the spa and Danielle and Company, the spa's official product line, were on hand to provide an array of heavenly relaxation treatments. The hand massage was to die for.
After thinking this spectacular day couldn't get any better, it did. The icing on the cake is the five brand new spa suites. Each one-of-a-kind suite is decorated with precision and sophistication including king size beds, fireplaces, Jacuzzis, private balconies and more. The problem is picking one out of the five suites to stay in!
In the midst of building these amazing facilities, the Logan family ensured the facility would be Green. From the site work down to the bed linens, Green products were used, reducing their carbon footprint on the destination.
I commend the Logan family for all of their hard work and continued success. We are proud to say their property is part of the Pocono Mountains and I encourage everyone to experience the French Manor Inn and Spa for themselves.
