In 1971, Richard and Alice Angino bought a 52-acre abandoned farm and over the next 36 years acquired 810 acres, including an inn and restaurant, nudist colony, and golf resort community. Over the years, hundreds of thousands of dollars and thousands of hours were lovingly invested in creating incomparable gardens and so much more! Then, at a cost of 10 million dollars, overnight lodges were built, all existing buildings and infrastructure were enlarged and refurbished. Every golf hole became garden-themed and the colony community house was remodeled into a California-style spa. The name, Felicita was carefully chosen. This beautiful Italian word is full of promise and means great happiness. The resort began as a well known golf course hosting the Pennsylvania Classic for several years. It quickly became known as the ultimate destination venue setting the stage for thousands of weddings and events over the next 10 years. The Resort is ready to go for a wonderful mountain retreat with income producing opportunities in all seasons set atop the beautiful Pennsylvania mountains. Surrounded by miles of state park game lands and only 10 miles from Harrisburg, the Felicita Mountain Resort is a wonderful escape from fast-paced city stress without the long travel. This resort would make a magnificent all Inclusive community with infrastructure already present for the amenities such as the spa, stores, food and beverage areas. A quick conversion of the lodges would make fast income producing condos! The potential opportunities are endless. Located directly behind lodges is the perfect location for a multi-use community of town homes and single family homes. Guest can access hundreds of acres of mountain land, trails, and maintained gardens, all surrounded by miles of state parks and game lands. Just beyond that is access to the Appalachian Trail. The resort is only 10 miles from Pennsylvania s capitol, Harrisburg, 1-1/2 hours from Baltimore, 2 hours from Philadelphia and 2-1/2 hours from Washington, DC. Just minutes up Fishing Creek Valley Road is Penn National Racetrack with The Hollywood Casino and Hershey Park.
