Jan. 29 open house at Woodside Lodge in Schwenksville

Jan. 29 open house at Woodside Lodge in Schwenksville




After a $1.5 million renovation, the old Woodside Manor is "inn" again, says its proprietor, Gayle Buckman.
The Woodside Lodge at Spring Mountain, 150 E. Park Avenue, Schwenksville, will host an open house this Sunday, Jan. 29, from 1 to 4 p.m.
Last April 1, Rick and Gayle Buckman purchased the Woodside Lodge, formerly known as the Woodside Inn and The Woodside Manor. The 14,000-square-foot building is located on three-plus acres on the back side of Spring Mountain in northwestern Montgomery County.
The couple’s goal was to preserve the historic building while offering lodging for visitors of nearby Spring Mountain Ski Area. The Buckmans have owned the ski resort for more that a decade.
Scarred by weather and plundered by vandals, the inn sat vacant for two years before the Buckmans decided to give it a future.
"I just kept driving by and thinking, 'I want to save this building,'" said Gayle Buckman. "We have a thing for local history."
For information on the open house, call 215-416-2999.
