The large parlor room was filled with over 100 chairs, and was called the Rocking Chair Room. The beautiful, polished floors were of local pine.
There were 150 sleeping apartments and five rental cottages. The inn had its own power plant, telegraph office and long distance telephone service.
Entertainment included an orchestra, three bowling alleys, shuffle board, billiard and pool tables, and 130 golf links (today, Corey Woods), and a stable of 50 horses.
President Roosevelt stayed at Pine Forest in 1902.
The inn thrived as a popular resort for many years, but began to decline during World War I.
