Nature nurtures and inspires at this stone and wood lodge built in 2006 amid 150 acres of rolling woodlands and lakes. Public spaces, like an intimate fireside lounge, welcome the outdoors through floor-to-ceiling windows in shades of sage, stone, bark and merlot, complementing the Poconos’ seasonal grandeur, whether snowy white or lush green. In hallways connecting the spa, lobby and guestrooms, the natural ornamentation is swapped for works by local artists including Laura McManus and Chris Magdini.
Bed and Bath
The 57 guestrooms and suites are tranquil retreats that offer a seamless mix of nature and modern luxuries. All are airy and spacious, with full walls of windows and furnished private terraces overlooking the woods and lake or the rock garden waterfall. Large bathrooms have double vanities, enormous rain showers with a bench, and enclosed toilets, and come stocked with Essential Elements amenities and plush robes. All the mod cons are here too, including flat-screen TVs, free WiFi and desks with plenty of outlets.
The sparkling 40,000-square-foot spa is the lodge’s crown jewel, and no amenity is missing in its secluded treatment rooms, state-of-the-art fitness center or indoor/outdoor pool complex. Both the men’s and women’s locker rooms includes a fireside lounge with forest views along with a sauna, steamroom and hot tub. Outside, an infinity whirlpool and outdoor pool are sybaritic swimming holes amid the trees. The signature treatment is a Rosemary Awakening massage with just-picked herbs from the lodge’s seasonal Healing Garden, and there’s a phalanx of therapists who will tailor facial, massage or bodywork to your every whim. The fitness center is stocked with Cybex equipment, and trainers are on hand to get you in shape or just show you how to turn on the TV on your elliptical machine. For foodies, the aptly named Tree restaurant is a farm-to-table showstopper with cathedral ceilings supported by wood columns and a towering window wall that makes you feel as if you’re perched among the treetops.
In the Area
While nearby Hawley has a certain Norman Rockwell charm, everything you could possibly need or want is on hand at the lodge and its sister properties. Bordering the lodge, the Country Club at Woodloch Springs has been recognized as a top golf course by Golf magazine and Golf Digest. The 18-hole championship course winds over 6,579 yards of forest, wetland and meadow, with a signature 14th hole requiring duffers to carry 220 yards over a gaping river gorge. Tennis, anyone? Head over to Woodloch Pines Resort, where there are four new hard courts for match play. This neck of the woods is renowned for its trout fishing, and the lodge offers fly-fishing and fly-tying classes along with private instruction and trips. Learn to cast in the waters of Lake Teedyuskung or set out for the Lackawaxen River, a tributary of the Delaware that teems with wild brown and rainbow trout. And whether you want to find your inner Picasso in an oil painting class or learn how to illustrate with traditional quill pens and ink, there are more than 20 classes offered all week long in the lodge’s inspiring art studio.

Highly recommend The Lodge at Woodloch.
Accommodations, food, spa treatments and classes offered are excellent. Everything is enjoyable and relaxing. Great quality all around. Customer Service excellent with a beyond friendly staff. A truly Zen experience, I highly recommend!!! Can’t wait to go back.
Woodloch exceeded our every expectation! From the enthusiastic gate security (who greeted us as though he was waiting just for us), the friendly valet, the warmth of the check in staff (who had our registration all ready for us when we walked in), the accommodating spa staff, the amazing Tree waitstaff and hostesses (who even memorized where we sat to make sure they didn’t seat us in the same place twice)...every single staff member treated us like royalty. The spa was a slice of heaven...great accommodations, showers, comfy robes, steam room, super cool indoor and outdoor hot tubs, We both enjoyed massages in the couples suite, followed by nap time in the whisper room. The fitness classes we took - stretch class, core fusion, and conditioning - were led by expert, friendly instructors. Every single meal was a culinary delight - innovative menus, farm to table fresh, perfect portions - truly the best food that we’ve ever experienced on vacation. Our room was spacious, comfortable, well appointed, and clean. There was no need to venture off property during our two night stay...aside from a long, leisurely walk around the beautiful walking trails that winded in and out of the woods. Thank you Woodloch for this perfect getaway! We will be back!
This spa has everything to offer, from the minute you arrive, greeted by welcoming Robert at the gate to the parking attendants who take your car and store
Your luggage, and then put in your room when it is ready, to the restaurant staff, the spa services staff, all competent and professional, who also make you feel special. I really can't say enough about the friendly and helpful staff. The instructors were very knowledgable and made each class fun, especially the water trampoline class. The newest forest bathing walk on the grounds is so informative and interesting
We wanted to have a different Thanksgiving this year. We Googled “Luxury Spa In PA” and came up with the Lodge at Woodloch. What an absolutely fabulous find. Very tranquil setting. A diverse array of activities. Fabulous food. We’ll be back.
