Working in pastels and oils, her work has an impressionistic style. Her subject matter tends toward landscape, wildlife and people at work. In addition to their own artwork, the Longendorfers are committed to promoting works by local artists and crafts people in Pike County.

Waterfalls
Raymond skill Falls However, the real gem of the area is Raymond skill Falls, which is about five miles north of Dingmans Falls. This falls is the highest in the area and falls in three beautiful sections, giving visitors more of an opportunity to explore the falls. Because it isn't as popular as the other falls, it is likely to be not as heavily visited as well. Combined with the easy access to the top of the falls, it is a wonderful waterfall to visit. The top section of the falls is handicapped-accessible via a paved trail that leads from the parking lot. The five-foot cascade isn't particularly impressive but it is beautiful as it falls into a large pool of dark water. The area is a nice calm place to eat lunch or relax and admire the grandeur of the area. To the left of the top overlook, the pool drains into the next set of cascades. This second section of the falls is the tallest of the three, falling around 60 or 70 feet down a steep rock wall in several cascades that change direction. The trail follows the falls down, becoming steeper and more difficult. However, it shouldn't give most people any trouble. As the trail goes down, it offers views of the cascades. At the bottom of the section, there is another overlook next a large round pool of water that the cascades fall into. Like the upper pool, this pool is fenced in so that no one falls into the cold and sometimes rough waters. The cascades are spectacular, especially in higher water when more of the rock face is covered. The only thing that mars them are several fallen tree trunks that obscure the view of the top of the cascades. Below this pool is the third section of falls which is by far the most beautiful of the three. Adding to the beauty of its steep staircase-like cascades and its 180-degree curved rock cliff is a cascade from a smaller seasonal stream that appears more in wetter months. Reaching this section of the falls is more difficult, since the path isn't really well defined. However, there is a faint outline of a path that continues away from the overlook to the second section. Following this path will take a visitor down to the bottom section of the falls, although it may be obscured or ill-defined at points. The final section of the path is a slanted rock face that leads down to the bottom of the third set of cascades. Because it is very close to the falls, the rock path may be very slippery because of spray and mist coming off the falls, so be careful! One of the most special things about this waterfall are the water levels of Raymondskill Run. In general, when Dingmans Falls and Bushkill falls are an unimpressive trickle, this waterfall usually still looks good. In fact, the bottom section of the falls is best in lower water because its cascades are better defined. Visit this waterfall! ^

Childs Park Falls The George W. Childs Recreation Site is a former state park that is the site of a number of cascade waterfalls along Dingmans Creek. The site is named for George Childs, whose widow deeded the land to the commonwealth of Pennsylvania in 1912. The site contains three main waterfalls: Factory Falls, Fulmer Falls and Deer Leap Falls and is a few miles upstream from Dingmans Falls and Silverthread Falls. The site is also host to the ruins of Joseph Brooks' 19th century woolen mill. ^

Bushkill Falls www.bushkillfalls.com The Niagara of Pennsylvania High in the uplands of the Pocono Mountains of Northeastern Pennsylvania, streams of crystal pure water bubble up through rifts in primeval rock. These are the headwaters of Bushkill Creek, a great marsh alive with the call of wild birds. As the waters begin their descent toward the Delaware River far below, they move ever faster toward Bushkill Falls, rushing over Pennell Falls, then between rocky walls through the Upper Canyon and Laurel Glen. Suddenly the stream drops over the edge of a 100-foot cliff, the majestic Main Falls. From the deep pool at the bottom, banked by ferns, mosses, and wild flowers, the creek now drops another seventy feet through a long and spectacular gorge strewn with gigantic boulders. Trails and bridges lace the area, affording splendid views. Nature hikers are enthusiastic about the walk to the Bridal Veil Falls. Here you will follow a nice trail by the Pond Run stream. The stream soon flows into the Little Bushkill where the mountain path leads deep into the forest. Spring-fed waters tumble down the mountain side in a series of three lovely falls, so misty in their appearance they are named for brides of love. Charles E. Peters first opened Bushkill Falls to the public in 1904, with a single path and a swinging bridge over the head of the main falls. Bushkill Falls is still owned by the Peters family. Bushkill Falls is among the Keystone State's most famous scenic attractions. This unique series of eight waterfalls, nestled deep in the wooded Pocono Mountains, is accessible through an excellent network of hiking trails and bridges which afford fabulous views of the falls and the surrounding forest. Hiking the trails and viewing the towering 100-foot Main Falls are not the only activities possible on the expansive grounds of Bushkill Falls. Check out the Pennsylvania Wildlife Exhibit, Native American Exhibit, fish Twin Lakes, visit our variety of gift shops, stop at the Fudge Kitchen for delectible sweets in the Wagon Wheel Pavilion, take a paddle-boat ride, or enjoy a round of miniature golf. At Bushkill Falls there's plenty for the entire family to see and do! ^

Dingmans Falls- fully handicapped accessible. Beautifully mapped out trails and paths. The hike is about a ¼ mile and fairly easy. Really beautiful views. Great informational services and Guides. Dingmans Falls is one of the most popular waterfalls in northeastern Pennsylvania. Easy to traverse trails, bridges and even a boardwalk make access to Dingmans Falls, Silver Thread Falls and other neighboring waterfalls very accessible. ^

Silverthread Falls Glaciers covered this area 11,000 years ago. Especially when they began to melt, the glaciers gave the waterfalls and streams extra carving power. The abrasive action of particles carried by the flowing water for thousands of years has helped to carve the waterfalls of the ravine. Silverthread Falls' precision-cut corners appear to have been chiseled by hand, but the forces of nature are the only sculptors here. Shale, the sedimentary rock beneath the falls, splits easily both vertically and horizontally. The shale has split at joint fractures, and falling water has flowed through the weak cracks to help create this 80-foot waterfall. Continue along the trail, and feel the cooler air as you enter the ravine. Look to your right and you'll see the "V ^

Dingmans Falls Cascading over stair-step layers of shale, Dingmans Creek plunges 130 feet to create magnificent Dingmans Falls. The many fallen hemlock trees create habitat for residents of the ravine, and as the trees decompose, they also replenish the soil. Despite the acidity of the soil and the creek, many fish, including native brook trout, live in Dingmans Creek and can be seen in deep pools. The water power of Dingmans Creek attracted saw, grist and cider mills here in the 1800s, and the falls have been a tourist attraction for more than a century. From 1888 to its federal acquisition in 1975, Dingmans Falls was a private enterprise that charged admission to see the falls. The staircase near the falls climbs 250 steps to the top of the falls. This is a steep climb with section of uneven trail between series of stairs. Persons with medical conditions should not attempt the climb. ^

Reviews:

 

My girlfriend and I were visiting Bushkill Falls and found this mini resort under the Bushkill Fall's website's "Area Lodging." page. For just $150 per night the "Couple's Package," got us a queen-sized bed, jacuzzi, gas fireplace, dinner and breakfast. The food... Was GREAT. My girlfriend is still raving, even after we got home!. It is an Italian family who runs the place soooo it was very Italian. All the food is made rith there in the resort kitchen. The included dinner is was a $22 pp buffet (which we did not have to pay as it was included in the package) or entree off the menu: The Buffett included stuffed sole, eggplant parmesan, hot pasta station, and tons of other food. The included ( except tip) breakfast would have cost $13 per person for a ton of various foods and an omelet station.

The room was very nice but didn't include a VCR! This place was great! Cozy with delicious food, nice people, great service. There were outdoor pools, tennis courts, hiking and a lounge with liquor available, but we seldom left the room..
