    I remember riding by the Tallwood Lodge, on the way from Barryville, where we lived in the parsonage, on the school bus, and occasionally with my father and mother and sister for church rummage sales and dinners (the best part). This was in the late 50’s when my father Eric Kullberg was also the Methodist minister at both Barryville and Eldred.

    Being “little” I never appreciated it, as you others have. I loved Barryville and Eldred and I also went to school in Eldred.

    My most memorable act was when Brian Clouse and I rode our bikes to and from school one day and we beat the bus back to Barryville!

    Had my first honeymoon there in May 1957. Sad that it’s been torn down. The setting was beautiful, the lodge uncrowded, the meals fine, and the groundskeeper managed to drive his lawnmower into the lake while we watched. Happy times — oh so long ago.

    The rehab is gone and the buildings have been razed. I believe the pool has been filled in. The bridge across the halfway creek remains.

    I remember Tallwood Lodge because I worked there one summer as a teenager.

    I believe it was the summer of 1980? I worked for the Dr. Nick Leone family, they were wonderful. The summertime Indian Pow Wow held up the hill across the street were great for business. I bussed tables in the restaurant, general cleaning chores, maintained the huge swimming pool. They had families that came up every weekend. It was a great summer experience, I wish I could thank the Leone family personally for the opportunity. I’d love to visit with my children some time.

  6. I remember Tallwood Lodge very well as I lived there for a few years in the late 70’s as an early teenager. I remember the huge crowds that would come up for the annual Indian Pow Wow’s which was practically across the street. Great memories of my childhood growing up.

  7. Yes, also remember the Tallwood Lodge passing it going from Barryville to Eldred many times. Think it is now a rehab facility.

    Yes, I remember it well. We saw it everytime we went from Barryvile where we lived, to Eldred where my Dad had the Methodist Church services.

    Also we went there for groceries sometimes and of course I went to high school there in Eldred, and saw it passing by on the way to Eldred.

    The trees were very tall and stately and very nicely shaped. It was located across a little brook, so we could see it in the distance.

    I heard that someone wanted to get one of their trees for a Christmas tree for NYC, but they wouldn’t give one of them up.
