Description:

Cave Hill Resort, formerly known as Cave Hill Camp and Ranch, was founded in 1920 by Johanna Pach. Mrs. Pach and her husband, Frank, emigrated from Poland at the turn of the century. They raised nine children - Emilia, Anne, George, John, Joe, Edward, Helen, Evelyn and Steven. The family built a small farm raising cows, chickens, pigs, horses and acres of vegetable gardens. Together they built the dining hall and kitchen, a two-story cabin with eight rooms and six other smaller cabins. Mrs. Pach and her daughters cooked three meals each day for their summer guests and served delicious, homemade Polish and American food in a family-style tradition. All the boys maintained the buildings and land. In those early years, life's simple pleasures were enough for everyone. Cave Hill, now known as the "Camp" was a place where the city-dwellers could spend time in the fresh air and wide-open spaces. Camp life was simple too. Guests enjoyed horseback riding, canoeing on the Salmon River, hayrides, hotdog and marshmallow roasts at night, pitching horseshoes, playing tennis, basketball or handball, singing songs around the campfire or lying in a cozy hammock under a big Maple tree. In 1939 the family completed building one of its finest attractions - the 40 x 100 foot Swimming Pool. It was the center of attention where everyone flocked on those hot, summer days. By the late 1940's the family added three more cabins and a recreation hall which became the center for nighttime parties and dances. In the late 1960's and early 1970's two more cabins were built and two motel-style buildings with 14 rooms. They were located near the swimming pool so you were only a few hundred feet away from the sparkling, refreshing water for a morning dip. There have been many changes, additions and improvements to Cave Hill over the past forty years, but the one factor that has remained a constant is that Cave Hill is still operated by the same family, the descendants of Johanna Pach. Three of her grandchildren, JoAnn, Jim, and Nancy (Helen and Sonny's children) are still welcoming guests back to Cave Hill each summer. As they have learned the traditions and customs of their parents, aunts and uncles, they continue to make Cave Hill a fun, family-centered and relaxing spot for their visiting guests.
