What We Love
- An activity-packed Poconos retreat, including breakfast, dinner and a suite optionThe TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Award 2015, as the number-one family hotel in the country
- The incredible range of things to do, from attending a carnival to taking a cooking class
- The adult-oriented offerings, like an 18-hole golf course and access to The Lodge at Woodloch’s spa
Take the kids on a vacation to remember, or simply get back in touch with your own inner child, at the hotel that TripAdvisor voted America’s best and the world’s sixth-best for families. Woodloch Resort is passionately devoted to the spirit of play, offering dozens of activities and adventures for all. Schedules vary from day to day, but all four seasons – because this is a year-round getaway – there’s something fun to keep you busy and make you feel young again.
Archery? Snow tubing? Paintball? Mini golf? These are just four of the ways that you can let loose here, and not even the most unusual ones, either. That honor goes to activities like “Cake Wars,” the massive scavenger hunt, the drum circles and the miniature winter and summer Olympics. You can also partake in an “Amazing Race,” chute down a waterslide, watch a staff theme show, try an 18-hole golf course or choose between bumper cars and bumper boats. You’d hardly even know that all the other Pocono mountains are just outside – or that you’re old enough to attend the adults-only wine tastings.
Good to know
Please note that a resort fee of 15% is payable directly at the hotel. The resort fee includes access to all Woodloch activities, amenities and nightly entertainment.
Rooms and suites
Accommodations at Woodloch are spread among buildings all over the property, featuring varying floor plans, views and décor styles (some are rustic, while others skew more modern). The motel-style Classic Standard rooms occupy a central location near the main lodge and are packed with rustic charm. An accordion door separates the bedroom and living-room area. You’ll have two queen beds in the bedroom, plus two single day beds in the living room. Edgewater suites, which look out over the lake from their private patio or balcony, are split between the Springbook and Mountain Laurel buildings, which offer indoor access to the pool complex. These accommodations offer two queen beds in the bedroom, plus a regular couch and a queen pullout couch in the living room (separated by either a door or pocket door). Some of these suites offer an extra bathroom, while others hold a kitchenette, washer and dryer.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the main dining room, which is frequented by costumed characters that children will love, with many dishes incorporating high-quality, regionally grown ingredients. You’ll have breakfast and dinner included with your stay.À la carte dining is also on offer at several Woodloch-owned or -affiliated restaurants, like the Clubhouse at Woodloch Springs and more formal TREE Restaurant. Lighter bites are available lakeside and poolside, and there’s a country store and market for purchasing to-go snacks or fresh produce.
Woodloch Resort is sisters with the Condé Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure Readers’ Choice destination spa The Lodge at Woodloch. As a guest at the former, you have easy access to the latter, whose exquisite wellness center measures 40,000 square feet. Pick a facial, a body treatment or a hair service at Lotus Salon, and enjoy the cozy fireplaces, soothing waterwalls and adults-only setting. Please note that transportation between the two properties is not provided.
This lakefront TripAdvisor number-one family hotel in America of 2015 didn’t land such a huge honor without coming up with a staggering list of activities, for kids of all ages. You’re in the Poconos, with plenty of forms of outdoor recreation to keep you busy, but the resort has dozens of its own ideas for keeping you busy. In addition to biking, jogging and hiking, you can attend a carnival, participate in a miniature Olympics, enjoy bumper boats in the warmer months, go snow tubing in the colder months and watch an entertaining show with the property’s own staff. If you’re partial to more typically grown-up pastimes, there’s an 18-hole golf course, and perhaps you’ll even get to attend a wine tasting.
How to Get There
We stayed in Woodloch Springs. These houses off the golf course are the best kept secrets at Woodloch. Plenty of room to spread out. Bring your own food but there are plenty of on-property and nearby eating options. Fun for the whole family!
Great resort. Activities for everyone; adults & children.Our waitress Jennielle was super. She was friendly, & very efficient. The food was fabulous.The weather could have been better, but because of all the activities you didn't miss much. The halloween hayride was great. Really a great resort.
After working at Woodloch for quite some time I decided to return with my entire family for a weekend. We had a fabulous time! Accommodations, activities, nightly entertainment , food were outstanding and exceeded our expectations. It was great to see everyone and enjoy this treasure it our own backyard! We will be back!
