Blackwell Hotel: A real Hotel

the Blackwell Hotel, On Pine Creek, in Blackwell township is a very confortable looking establishment. We called in there to quench our thirst, and I got chatting to the Manager Reggie. It's the only real Hotel for miles, so you have little choice of places to stay.

The hotel is closed from mid-December until mid-January. Open Friday, Saturday and Sunday to March, and then every day.

Rooms start at about $75 per night.

Pine Creek: Not as Bad as it Looked

So, back to the store, just before it closed. This time the store owner made a local telephone call, and contact was made with someone who could hopefully get the door unlocked.

Back to the locked Cabins. About ten minutes later, Park Heverly arrived, with a bunch of keys. Park found the key to the barn doors (see previous photo), and opened up the cabin doors from the inside. How deceptive! What was obviously a damp and draughty barn, turned out to be a really comfortable, two-bedroomed cabin.

There was a slight problem with hot water on the first night, but Park fixed the heater next morning, and everything was just 'home from home'. There was no television, so Judy took it upon herself to teach Mary and me how to play cards. I think she cheated, hahaha.

It was a great experience, and one that everyone should try - staying in a cabin I mean!

Cabins in the area are available for rental, but apparently they can be quite expensive, especially in the high season.

Pine Creek: Pine Creek Hotel ??

Service?? Facilities?? Amenities?? haha. OK, OK, let me explain. Judy (JudyinPA) has a great Boss, who has some cabins by Pine Creek. Judy had booked one of these cabins for our accommodation, but when we arrived there was no key! Judy had been told that the key was in a certain place, and even had a copy of the EMail to verify this. But, after we all searched high and low, turning over stones, logs and whatever, we declared that there wasn't a key!

Time was passing, and it was getting late in the afternoon. Judy decided that she would have to make a 'phone call from the local store, about a mile away. After a few minutes, Judy emerged clutching a handful of keys, given to her by the store owner. these keys were from the cabin site, and we were 'assurred' that one of them should unlock one of the two cabins. Well, one of them did unlock the gateway at the top of the steep driveway down to the cabins, but none would open any of the doors. So, back to the store we went, and in something of a panic now, as it was nearing 7 pm, and that's when the store closed.
