Wiscasset Bungalows

Commercial / Pennsylvania

The Wiscasset Bungalows is an abandoned resort in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania, situated in a 1,000 acre pine grove above a high bluff.


The Wiscasset began as a fruit farm, dairy and livery. 1 Nine bungalows, each with a living room, fireplace, bath and two to six bedrooms, and a central dining hall, 1 were added by Mary Chase Lockwood in 1914. 2 The dining hall included a private table for each family and a large room for amusements. Water in the bungalows and dining hall came from the Wiscasset Spring.

Amenities included trout fishing in Indian Run Creek 1 and a large swimming pool.
