Where were or are your FI or DH's bach party?

My FI is throwing a bachelor party for his BM and is having a hard time on deciding what to do.  His friend said he does not want AC.  They were thinking of doing a house in the Pocono's on a lake for a weekend but he is having a hard time having people commit to 2 nights and a lot of guys are asking to stay 1 night but then he risks them having 15 or 18 guys at the house on one night.  He would also be the one putting down the deposit and signing the contract which I told him to be careful of.  I just don't want something to happen and FI not get his deposit back if someone breaks something.

I told him to just try and get a hotel room somewhere for 1 night so it's less of a hassle.  His friend now wants LBI but that is more family oriented in those hotels. 

Any ideas?

    Why is he against AC?  I don't know what there will be to do in the Pocono's....what type of activities do they have planned?

    What about a night in Philly?  Tons to do, and he can just throw out a hotel and leave it up to the guests to double up and book rooms.

    His BM requested no AC I think b/c pretty much all of our friends had theirs there so he was looking to do something different.  They love to fish so that is why they were thinking a house in the Poconos on a lake.  These boys are not really into the club scene.  They would love to just fish, drink and grill food. 

    Philly is a good idea they actually all just went to a bach party there this past November.  FI loved it maybe I will suggest that to him.  His BM is just super picky and giving my FI a very difficult time.

    If they do Philly, there is a pretty nice comedy club called Helium, they could hit that up and then go out afterwards.  As User said, everyone just books their own rooms.  

    EDIT: If the Groom wants to do something more relax, they could do campling for a night or a weekend and then people can decide whether they could do one or two nights.

    Mine was at Foxwoods.  Spent the day at the Jonathan Edwards Winery which was so nice.  We went to dinner at Al Dente which was amazing, and went out at the Shrine Club at night.  Then had lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe the next day. 

    There are casinos, golf, and lots of other stuff to do around there, and it's a change of scenery from AC.
