BUSHKILL, PA (December 2016) – Crisp, cool winter air awaits when you take a scenic trail ride on horseback at The Villas and Fernwood Resort. The mountains are beautiful covered in a mantle of white, and horseback riding takes you back to simpler times of old.

After a day in the outdoors, you can return to The Villas and Fernwood to warm up by the fire, have dinner, take a swim in the indoor pool, and relax."
