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.
How to Get There
The Lodge at Woodloch: The people/staff at Woodloch are superb! So kind, down to earth, and accommodating! The dining experiences are excellent and the resort itself is immaculate! Top notch all around for sure!!
Truly a first class resort. Rooms were meticulously maintained with fluffy towels, high end toiletries, luxe bathrobes. Food was gourmet, and too much to choose from. Spa was beautiful and classes were varied. From my 26 year old niece, to my 80 year old mom, there was something for everyone! Who knew we would come home with watercolor paintings that made us feel like artists, to boot camp that kept us in shape!
There so much to write, enjoy the views, walks, art classes (mosaic, drawing, water colors), spa (all types), wall yoga, gourmet food (vegan, ovalacto, kosher, meat). Leave time to get there early as you make the most out of your day. There are approximately 57 rooms, so book early. Things fill up. Must be age16 to go there...
Stayed at spa. Pretty much everything was great. Most of the classes weren’t hard, just introduction type. There were a few that were harder if you want. Only had one treatment, the floatation tub. Not worth it and really no big deal. Hot tub and waterfalls that aren’t extra were better. Food great, staff great, rooms and grounds beautiful. I took car service from Long Island to spa that was well worth it. This is not a spa to loose weight , so if that is what you want this is not for you but if you want to relax and indulge then go
The Lodge at Woodloch is an amazing destination spa resort. I loved everything about it. I went for a solo spa retreat in July 2018 and came out of it relaxed and re-energized. The resort has a private intimate feeling because of a conscious choice to keep the numbers of rooms low. I often felt like I had the grounds to myself because the guests were so well spread out. The grounds were perfect for running, hiking and kayaking and stand up paddle boarding. The room was gorgeous with a lovely veranda where I felt one with nature. The massages were amazing. The best part were the classes, everything from yoga to spinning to cooking demos to barre to everything. Even the food was amazing and all included. I did not want to leave and definitely plan to go back.
