Tannersville Cranberry Bog

Cranberry Manor Bed and Breakfast is located on 14 acres which consists mostly of protected wetlands along the edge of the Tannersville Cranberry Bog.

Standing out in vivid contrast to the surrounding Pocono Mountains landscape, you will find the Tannersville Cranberry Bog. Thousands of years ago, a large glacial lake occupied the space of what has since become a thick soup of peat moss.

Today, while the ice and lake have long receded, the unique bog ecosystem that remains serves as the southernmost low elevation boreal bog along the eastern seaboard. It represents an intricate transformation that took place over the millennia and would be impossible to replace if destroyed.

Public bog walk guided tours are available by reservations only through the Monroe County Environmental Center. Please visit their website for the calendar of Bog Walk dates and phone numbers to reserve your spot for a bog walk. Our guests can meet up 5/10 mile down the road at the Cranberry Bog parking lot to take the tour which lasts about 2 ½ hours. Bring good walking shoes, water, and bug spray.  Download the 2018 Bog Walk Schedule.pdf with contact and Pre-registration info.
