Restaurant, Bar, & Motel

Outdoor Patio Open for Dining!


July 15th Update

Due to new safety regulations, both our bars will be closed. We will still offer outdoor and indoor dining at our tables, but food purchase is required. We are not permitted to serve just alcohol to guests at a table.
We also want to remind our patrons that masks and social distancing are required when not seated at a table. If you are entering and exiting the restaurant or getting up to use the restrooms, please have your mask on. If an employee reminds you of our policy and the government mandate, please be respectful and put your mask up. Their safety, your safety, and our success depend on everyone's cooperation.
Thank you again for your support during these times. We have proudly served the Poconos for 40 years and we look forward to continuing to serve and support our community.

The History of Murphy's Loft

The original "Log Cabin" was constructed in 1934 from native spruce, harvested entirely from the surrounding woods. Known for many years as The Log Cabin, this rustic mountain lodge was a boarding house for hunters and other outdoorsmen. During a typical deer hunting week, extra cots overflowed into the dining room. Long rows of cots were installed against the wall, while hearty Pennsylvania Dutch Style meals were served on tables lining the other wall. In 1946, the current Fern Ridge Motel was built using stones removed from the ski slopes at Big Boulder Park.
