Woodloch is...


 

"Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 children ages 7 and 12) just returned from our four night stay at Woodloch Pines Resort and were delighted with our vacation. With the exception of Disney World, we have typically avoided "family vacation" spots for fear of being overwhelmed by the cheesiness of the whole thing, and our first night there we were a little apprehensive. The experience was beginning to feel like we were stuck in a 1957 time warp, but 24 hours into it all, we asked our kids what they thought and they replied that it was the best vacation ever. For me, it was a huge learning point - all these years of vacations and we had been missing out on something special. We spent more time laughing and having fun and doing things together at Woodloch than we have ever done at any other destination. We found that when we stopped taking ourselves so seriously and started "embracing our inner cheese", the results were fantastic. The family that runs Woodloch are absolute professionals and know the secret formula to creating great experiences for families is to stay true to what has always worked, and to do it better than anyone else. I, for one, hope they never change a thing. Woodloch is an all-American icon, and we would all be better served to support a few more "real" family vacation spots like this."

"Woodloch is not just a vacation as much as it is an experience." - TripAdvisor User ~ Yorkville, IL


"With everyone’s busy schedule, taking time to spend with family is a much needed respite. We are all enjoying each other and this wonderful place. Our gift to our family, a family vacation at Woodloch, could not be unwrapped on Christmas morning; but unlike the sixty dollar sweatshirt, spending time with family will never go out of style."

  - The Domchick Family

 

"Woodloch is my favorite family vacation! The activities are better than at any resort I’ve ever been to...the upkeep on the grounds is wonderful...the family atmosphere and traditions...Randy and Joey do their jobs so well. Even though we stay at the Springs every year, we still feel connected to the atmosphere and a part of the fun. The golf course and Spa are impeccably maintained as well."

  - Alison Bullock

 

"...For me and my family, it's a magical land that brings happiness and closeness and days filled with never ending 'togetherness'; and isn't that what it's all about? Woodloch never ceases to amaze me with their new ideas, their staff who undoubtedly love their jobs as they perform them with such precision, yet a relaxed tone so that everyone feels at home. As always the grounds are perfect and the 'respect' that your guests receive is remarkable."

  - Mr. & Mrs. Richard Watson and Family

I am certain you are used to receiving great feedback from your guests and I am providing yet one more. You nailed everything. The entertainment blew us away. The service was awesome. The food and drinks were perfect. The accommodations, the location, the nostalgia, everything was perfect. We received the total Woodloch experience and got the whole magic Woodloch vibe from all of your staff and the other guests we met. So thank you to all of you at Woodloch who are so great at what you do. We loved every moment and had the greatest fun. We will see you soon."

Activities – Entertainment

 

"We enjoyed all of the activities. My 4 year old was so surprised to have a pony ride yesterday. She was in heaven. Our teens loved the ziplining too. The show was fantastic. The comedian was really great, and I loved how my teens could watch too since it was all family frinedly. We all loved the pool area. My 4 year old was nuts for the children's swim area. It is so nicely done and the water warm. We all enjoyed it."

- Amy F.

 

"Where can you go that kids and adults are entertained at the same time? Not even a cruise ship would do the same."

 

"When I come back from Woodloch by bus or by car I feel as though I'd just spent the time in shangra-la. Whenever I'm in Woodloch, whatever I've purused the prospect of enjoyment has me all enthused. There's row boating, paddle boats, kayaking too on a picturesque lake with a breathtaking view. Mini-golf, tennis, swimming vying for my attention plus indoor activities, much too much for me to mention. Gourmet meals and service, exciting show each night what more can I say, this place is just a sheer delight. There is no other fun place that ever could "Rock" like that kaleidoscope of action, my wonderful Woodloch!!" - Lorraine Bober

"I recently had a meeting at Woodloch and I would like to express my appreciation regarding how well the entire event was run. I have organized meetings at many different hotels & resorts, but your resort was the best, by far.

Loyalty - Tradition

 

"We have been coming to Woodloch for at least 6 years with our family. Next March, we will have a sixth grandchild to add to the mix of our three children, their spouses, and a nephew & niece. We also come at various times during the year to celebrate birthdays or just to escape and relax. NEVER, have we been disappointed in any way. Last year we asked the grandchildren, [ages 4 to 11]  if they would like to go to Disney instead. They were horrified and told us "No, we want Woodloch"


So, in March, all 15 of us arrived for a long weekend and had a blast. Next March there will be 16, and the little ones are eager to earn more medals. I am turning mine into wind chimes.


There are many reasons we choose Woodloch for our family getaway. The activities allow us all to play together, the rooms are spacious and always clean, the food is delicious, and the wait staff is attentive to the needs of 5 squirmy kids. The entertainment is fun for all ages and the staff is wonderful. See you soon!"

- Denise DarConte

 

"It was wonderful to visit with you and enjoy the Kiesendahl family hospitality last weekend. Novelist Thomas Wolfe wrote, "you can never go home". How wrong he was! Chris and I slipped back into the Woodloch fold after a hiatus of almost 25 years like it had been 25 weeks. You should be justifiably proud of what you have created. You have earned your well-deserved reputation and success. It is not surprising that 4 generations of the Nunziata family enjoyed your resort. You have proven to us that you can indeed go home again."

  - John Nunziata

 

"Our family hasn't missed a Woodloch vacation - in 40 years! The 5 of us have grown to 23 - spouses and grandkids included. In both winter and summer, Woodloch offers something for every single one of us - with ages from 6 months old to over 50 (including my son, who has a host of both psychical and mental Special Needs) Although Woodloch has grown into a destination resort, that is all encompassing, the owners and staff have never, ever lost sight on the importance of family, their promise of excellence and their tradition of warm hospitality! "

  - Jerelyn Zontini


The Woodloch experience over the years has brought our family closer together and we will carry on this tradition for many years to come. Our family thanks all of you for your hospitality and life-long friendship."

  - Vito V.

 

"After being here only once, we stopped looking for other vacation spots. We intend to keep coming back to Woodloch!"

  - Doris B.

 

"Our stay at Woodloch far exceeded our expectations. The food, accommodations, and activities were wonderful. Not once during our stay were we looking for something to do, nor were we ever saying "I'm Hungry" (a feat in itself considering our children are always hungry). What makes Woodloch stand out from the other fine resorts though is the service. We cannot say enough good things about how well we were treated. How wonderful it was that every single person on the staff (all the way up to the owners) took time to make sure we had everything we needed to make our stay perfect. We definitely understand why people keep coming back for 10, 20, 30 even 40 years. Thank you for an outstanding vacation! We are already discussing a return trip!"

  - Monica Trout


"We are first timers and this was one of the greatest vacations we have ever been on rivaling Disney! This is our new annual tradition."

  - Bradley Gribin~ Jackson, NJ

"We’ve been to Myrtle Beach and Disney and I can’t remember which one we went to last summer, but I’ll always remember this vacation."

  - Carol Miller~ Dover, OH

 

"My 3-year-old kept referring to Woodloch as "our new home."- We can’t wait to come back next summer and stay at "our new home" again."

  - The Coakley's

 

"It feels like coming home to family after being away for a while."

 

"Let’s put it this way…all I have to say to my kids is ‘If you don’t stop, you are NOT going to Woodloch.’ Well, I have the best behaved kids on the planet."

 

"This is the success of Woodloch- parents bring their children, those children become adults and bring their children, etc.

 

"Friends tell us there is a world of other resorts and that we should look farther afield. However, when we think about the richness of this tradition, the memories, the beauty of the resort, and the value of friendship we all share, we keep coming back."

  - Elizabeth McCarthy~ Pittsburgh, PA

 

"We love Woodloch Pines. It is a very special part of our family memories. It is hard to recall life before it, or think about life without it."

 

"I can say Woodloch is certainly the kind of place I want my family to know for many years."

  - Pat Caserta~ Kinnelon, NJ

 

"You can’t find a place like Woodloch anywhere. It meets all your needs. We have been going there for 25 years and even from the start we felt Woodloch was our home away from home."

 

"Our family has been coming to Woodloch for 10 years. Each one of us truly enjoys it so much! My children, ages 11 and 13 were so upset to leave yesterday. Thank you for all you do to make our stay enjoyable."

  - Patricia Hughes~ Edison, NJ

 

"As usual, everything was fabulous. It was unbelievable that members of your staff put on a soccer game so my 82 year old father could play. Woodloch's hospitality is extraordinary. Woodloch is our family's home away from home. We look forward to coming back for many years."

  - Darryl Grant~ Potomac, MD

 

"For years prior to us coming 20 plus years ago, my in laws - Patty& Jim Finn tried very hard to get us to come but our pushback was- you want us to go to the Pocono's, to a place called Woodloch Pines and spend that kind of money - you are crazy. Needless to say, it was one of the best decisions we ever made and the fact that our daughters at 23, 21 still want to come back with us is a great testament to what WP is all about - creating magical/ family memories that will live on forever!"

  - John & Maura Hogan

"For years, my family has been telling me what a great place Woodloch Pines is and how much they always enjoy coming there every year. This was my first visit, and I can't thank you enough for such a wonderful time. Everyone made us feel like family from the time we arrived. The suite was the best I ever stayed in.
