The Pines Hotel in South Fallsburg, New York was built in 1933 and was a popular destination for those who enjoyed winter sports, as it had its own ice skating rink and was a favorite spot for skiers. The Pines also featured a ballroom, bars, and a nightclub, which featured performances by comedians such as Buddy Hackett. The Pines Hotel closed its doors in 1998.
