Penn Hills resort

Built in 1944. the Penn Hills Resort in the Pocono Mountains region of Pennsylvania began its life as a local tavern, and soon grew into a getaway resort tailor made for lovers looking to spend a weekend wrapped up in the throes of passion and romance.

Penn Hills was dubbed the 'Paradise of Pocono Pleasure', and rooms were outfitted with heart-shaped bathtubs, with a wedding bell-shaped outdoor pool further driving home the fact that the resort was all about love. It even offered up an ice skating rink, tennis court and a bar, the latter of which was of course shaped like a heart.

After the co-founder of Penn Hills passed away in 2009, the resort quickly fell into a state of extreme disrepair, overtaken by mold and marred by water damage. Five years after being completely abandoned, the building still sits high up in the Pocono Mountains, a shell of its former self, and a creepy reminder of the romantic getaways that it once provided for Pennsylvania lovers.
