CAVE HILL RESORT

Cave Hill Camp was founded in the early 1930s. It is one of the handful of Moodus resorts still in business today and the last one to be owned by the same family that started it. Cave Hill, along with its neighbor across the road, Sunrise Resort, offers a classic Moodus vacation experience, but updated for today's sensibilities. The resort offers plenty of activities in the gracious atmosphere of a family-oriented, rustic country place. Don't expect to find televisions or telephones in the rooms, however -- that's not the classic Moodus resort way. One longtime visitor to Cave Hill said, "this is where God comes when he wants a vacation from heaven." High praise, indeed.

You can get more information and a brochure by visiting  Cave Hill Resort on the Web or calling (860) 873-8347.

Check out this Hartford Courant profile of Cave Hill.
