[Greetings from the water slide in the Biosphere Pool Complex at Grand Cascades Lodge]
Imagine the usual east coast winter, with snow on the ground and a chill in the air, yet you’re poolside in the Biosphere, surrounded by tropical plants and radiating warmth from a special retractable glass roof, that features 100% light transmission for year-round Vitamin D possibilities. Glance outside of the glass complex and you can’t help but take in the incredible mountain view from the Appalachian Valley, either from a lounge chair, the indoor or heated outdoor pool, from the jacuzzi, or on your way down the swirling Biosphere slide. This much needed respite is located under 50 miles from New York City, in Hamburg, New Jersey, and although utilizing the facility as a winter getaway seems the ultimate use of the place, during the summer months the possibilities for relaxation and entertainment seem equally endless.
