New Owners of Penn Hills Speak

They have several concerns

ANALOMINK, MONROE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) - The new owners of a former honeymoon resort in the Poconos spoke exclusively with Eyewitness News for the first time about their plans.

They want to transform Penn Hills in Analomink into a family vacation destination.

The owners, based in Flushing, New York, say their biggest concerns are trespassing and the recent suspicious fire at the main building. Owners call the fire 'very unfortunate'.

They say trespassors break in regularly, and contractors are constantly replacing broken boards on windows and doors.

They state, "the end solution is to be able to start work and renovation on the site. Only then will we be able to have surveillance and live patrol on the site 24/7. Only then will we be able to truly prevent accidents."

Owners say working to obtain permits has been a 'tediously slow' process, and they plan to visit Stroud Township officials over the next few weeks.

Stroud Township says locating the sewage system at Penn Hills will be a challenge.
