Throwback Thursday: Beautiful Mount Airy Lodge
Ahh, spring. Time for a quick weekend getaway to the Poconos, and to the delights of beautiful Mount Airy Lodge, where one can enjoy horseback riding, tennis, a dip in a frothy heart-shaped tub in the seclusion of your room, and fine dining while enjoying the stylings of Rodney Dangerfield and Tony Bennett .
That's what those wonderful commercials from the late 1970s promised, and it was all just a 90-minute drive away! Alas, Mount Airy Lodge is no more, but the jingle that promises a beautiful getaway with "your host with the most in the Poconos," lives on.
This commercial below promotes Mount Airy's winter activities, but there were commercials tailored for each season. Because there never was a bad time to go to the lodge.
