A Review of Our Stay at Mount Airy Casino Resort

Mount Airy Casino Resort

After a long school year filled to the brim with after school activities, team sports and various other commitments, the focus seemed to always be on Z.E.N.  Now that school is out for the summer, it’s time to shift some of the focus to our relationship. As a couple, it’s extremely important for us to reconnect with each other, relax, and recharge. This isn’t just for us, as happy and connected parents make for a better environment for children, as well. One of the best ways to do this is to take a quick getaway. Luckily for us, Mount Airy Casino Resort offered us a complimentary stay at their resort and we couldn’t say no!

Beautiful Property

Located in Mount Pocono in Pennsylvania,  the Mount Airy Casino Resort is a AAA four diamond property.  It features 188 newly renovated rooms. Our room was quite comfortable.  It was nicely decorated and the King sized bed was heavenly. We were on the top floor so we had a pretty good view of the lake and golf course. My only complaint about the room is the lack of a refrigerator. Instead, there was a stocked mini bar stocked with beverages that you have to pay for. We drink a lot of water and packed some with us, but couldn’t chill them. There were also some snacks on the table on top of the fridge that had some sort of sensor, which would result in a charge if you move them.

The property itself  is huge and offers a wide variety of services and options for parents to relax and de-stress and really enjoy each other. There are enough activities and options for couples to enjoy themselves throughout the day and re-connect for meals, for a relaxing spa treatment, or for a lovely evening.

Entertainment Options

We don’t play golf, but I can see how the 18-hole golf course that emphasizes the beauty of the surrounding forests and hills would be a very popular draw for men and women both who love the sport.

There are a lot of great shows and concerts held at the resort, and these can change from week to week, meaning the best way to know what’s available at the time is to check the most recent listings on their website. A fine bar and nightclub also each give off a very unique vibe depending on what you are in the mood for.

The Casino

The casino itself is a major part of the Mount Airy experience. There are slot machines, card tables, roulette, craps, tournaments, and often special competitions or contests being run that any guests may participate in. The casino allows smoking in certain areas. The smell of smoke still seemed to waft over even though we tried to stay in the non-smoking area. Philip and I can’t stand the smell of cigarette smoke so we didn’t spend a lot of time in the casino. 

The Spa

The spa is beautiful and relaxing. I had a massage there and it was amazing. The spa also featured a steam room and sauna. I felt so relaxed coming out of the spa and would recommend it to anyone who visits the resort.

The Pool

The pool area is really nice.  The pool was pretty big and featured both and indoor and outdoor section. We stayed at the indoor pool and basically had the entire pool to ourselves. There is a bar/snack bar right next to the pool so we ordered a few drinks while we were there.

Fine Eateries Abound

There are a few different choices for food at the resort. Some are simple, like the Starbucks located on the lower level, while others really shine like Guy Fieri’s Mt. Pocono Kitchen or the Bistecca by Il Mulino. The first night there we ate at Guy Fieri’s. The food was plentiful and very good.

I should also note that this restaurant is open 24 hours. We also ate there for breakfast, which was also very good.

Il Mulino offers exquisite pasta that is hand crafted from scratch, fresh local seafood, and traditional high end culinary recipes to delight the taste buds. The food here was absolutely delicious.

The Verdict?

The verdict on the Mount Airy Casino resort on Mount Pocono is that it is an incredible place for parents to relax, de-stress, and reconnect. I just wish there were more activities. For those that don’t gamble, play golf or want to spend money at the spa, there is really not much to do.
