The “Poconos” transform into a vibrant, kelly green haven for patient nature enthusiasts. And while there are countless reasons to visit the Poconos this spring, we’ve compiled a handy list of springtime favorites here at the top-rated family resort in the United States.
As you might imagine, this world-renowned destination spa resort has played host to a perfect proposal or two over the decades. Popping the question is one of the most memorable moments of a person’s life so it’s vital to scan through as many surprise, creative, or private proposal ideas as possible.
Woodloch Resort celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2018, a well-deserved diamond jubilee that we loved sharing with our loyal guests. While The Lodge at Woodloch is an idyllic location for an intimate anniversary surprise, the main resort (Woodloch Pines) typically plays host to larger gatherings.
Wine connoisseurs (“oenophiles”) often discover our particularly stunning slice of the Pocono Mountains when Googling “wine tasting near me.” And luckily for you, Woodloch Resort is also a short drive from a handful of top-rated Poconos vineyards, which we list below.
With so many fun things to do when it’s cold, it’s no wonder Woodloch was recently named the best American family resort by USA Today. Hopefully, these 18 winter bucket list ideas provide a glimpse of what makes our historic, family-owned resort so incredibly alluring.
The Woodloch Resort family is not one to hoard awards or revel in its accomplishments. Every award, accolade, and five-star review is the product of decades of hard work, creativity, ingenuity, and a passion for family bonding. Last year, we received perhaps our most prestigious award yet: the title of “Best Family Resort in America,” according to USA Today.
There are a handful of destinations within 100 miles of New York City that foster authentic, old-fashioned family bonding, including Woodloch Resort. Over the years, we’ve become synonymous with “offline retreat” (or “unplug retreat,” depending on who you ask). In fact, we’ve evolved into the most desirable digital detox for kids (and parents) on the East Coast.
Families can go head-to-head with other families competing in wholesome homegrown activities such as the ever-popular Summer (or Winter) Olympics. Hence, it’s easy to forget about our nightly, crowd-pleasing Poconos entertainment, which ranges from eye-popping magic to foot-tapping live music.
In recent years, we identified a need to implement an array of adult day programs to please the general public, particularly New York City area residents. Most adults (mainly parents) don’t spend nearly enough time on themselves. With no allotted “me time,” it’s easy to become stressed, overworked, and distracted at home.
Snowshoes have come a long way from their primitive ash and rawhide origins. Nowadays, most shoes are made of metal, plastic, and synthetic fabric. But, the fact remains that snowshoeing in the Poconos is still an ethereal experience for many—even youngsters!
