Buck Hill Falls

Cottage Fever Winter FestivalFebruary 16-18, 2018

Great fun for family and friends, the first annual Cottage Fever Winter Festival, February 16-18, has something for everyone.

Families will have a blast playing Giant Connect Four, Giant Jenga, or Ice Bowl with friends. Spend time at Paiste Pond Activity Center creating a president’s day art project with  the Buck Hill Art Association. Sit around the fire pits munching tasty treats from the Fairway Grille food stand or roasting marshmallows. Other fun with friends and family during the festival weekend includes: a President’s Day-themed scavenger hunt, ice skating and ice hockey on our man-made winter pond, and snowman-building.

Looking for some active outdoor fun? Take a few Platform Tennis lessons and join in a round robin game.  Sign up for Platform Tennis during the festival. If you aren’t the competitive type, join Frank May our resident naturalist, for a family  nature walk. If there’s some snow cover, bring your skis for a cross country skiing adventure with Brian Fowler or try your hand at snowshoeing (The snowshoes are on us).

New to Buck Hill? Interested in getting to know the Buck Hill lifestyle first hand? Stop by our Real Estate Table and chat with a Welcome Committee Member or visit an open house with our realtors.

Our main event on Sunday should prove to be the most exciting part of our weekend. Lot and Cot will be sponsoring a Presidential Cardboard Sled Contest and Race. Kids (and their grown-up helpers) should come to  Paiste Pond prepared with a hand-crafted cardboard sled. We will have judges ready to award kids for best handiwork and weather-permitting, we will have the ultimate cardboard sled race down Swarthmore Hill on the Buck Hill Golf Course. Here are some inspiring ideas on  how to make the best racing cardboard sleds.

*Thanks to Lowe’s in Mount Pocono, anyone who wants to be a part of the Cardboard Sled Race and Competition can call the Buck Hill Falls office at 570 595-7511 and stop by to get a free box! We are located at: 270 Golf Drive in Buck Hill Falls.
