We spent all our summers either swimming or fishing. I finally made it back after 40 years and boy has it changed.
The original lake is all grown in with vegatation and the road that once led to the fishing lake is now blocked off.
Heaven was falling asleep on a winter’s night to the sound of the snow making machines.
Does anyone know the name of the Nepenthe Restaurant, before it was the Nepenthe Restaurant?
the lodge was eventually used as a resturant called nepenthay.
irember the morning the lodge burnt, it was right around five in the morning andi was out walking my dog, i saw it lite up and i a few moments it was gone.
The Lodge sat empty for years before it was sold and turned into the Nepenthe and people still used the slopes for sledding and snowmobiles and cross country skiing until the 1990’s when houses were built on the main slope.
The only bad part is there are “NO TRESPASSING” signs for some unknown reason all that is there is rocks, but just ignore them i did.
A friend and I was talking about this and neither one of us knew the answer? My parents built our cabin on 316 Forest Road and we were one of the original families.
The road is still called Forest Road but the site has changed.
I believe some of the upper slope area is now occupied by vacation homes.”i remember watching the skiers come down the hill,using a telescope from the window in my mothers house in norvelt when i was a child. eventually lived in the house on the corner of ski slope and snowshoe.i have skied all over pa a nd vermont, the lodge at bearocks was the most prettiest lodge i was ever in.
my wife and i would run on the slopes after the area was closed.
I am a little fuzzy on this but I believe there was a rope tow on the gentle grade between the lodge and chair base that served as a beginner area.
