US Japan Fam | Sanity Restored

“When Woodloch Resort (voted the #1 Family Resort in the United States) invited us on a weekend getaway I was a little nervous to be honest. We’d been there twice before and it is one of my all time favorite family vacation spots. But during a pandemic!? Turns out I had no need to worry, and it was just what the doctor ordered! Sanity restored. Beautiful memories made. It was Heaven on Earth.”

Ariel Loves | Peace of Mind

“Woodloch took many special measures and put new operating procedures in place in order to ensure the health and safety of guests and staff, which gave me so much peace of mind. Voted the #1 family resort in the United States by USA Today, Woodloch is built on the concept of bringing loved ones together, spending time with one another, + creating memories to last a lifetime.”

Coast 2 Coast with Kids | Opportunity to Explore

“Woodloch really is a special place. It’s owned and run by the same family for over 60 years. A family who greets guests at every meal and welcomes them to every activities, who enthusiastically cheers for guests at competitions and invites them to try something new. The grounds are beautiful, the food is homemade and delicious, and there is no way you could run out of things to do. We’re so grateful we had the opportunity to explore Woodloch and we can’t wait to return.”

The Curated Farmhouse | Dirty Dancing

“When we drove up to Woodloch, fall had just begun to touch the Poconos, and the leaves had just started to turn, I was in love instantly.”

If you have ever watched Dirty Dancing, Woodloch reminds me of the movie. Helpful staff, fun games and activities, and so much more. It would truly be an understatement if I said I can’t wait to go back. I have a feeling that Woodloch will be a family vacation tradition for years to come.”

Roberta Pipito | Leaving is the Hardest Part

“The hardest part every time is leaving Woodloch this place just brings out the best in families. From the fun activities, shows and food you couldn’t ask for a better place to spend time with the family. I have been to many resorts and no one has come close to being the kindest and most welcoming staff. Until next time.”

Finnegan & the Hughes | Our Happy Place

“With two very active kids playing multiple sports each per season and my husband and I both working full time jobs we are constantly on the go and have little time to getaway. When we do get away, Woodloch Resort has become our go-to spot. Destined to always have a good time, my kids beg to get to Woodloch Resort when we are free.”

“While Coronavirus has affected our lives on many different levels, one thing it has done has made everyone realize just how important it is to appreciate time with your loved ones. Our goal has become simple this year – to slow down, soak in the summer sun and create lasting family memories like never before.”

“Deciding to take a summer vacation in the middle of a pandemic was not an easy decision to make. With two small kids, safety and cleanliness were our two biggest concerns. Thankfully, Woodloch helped ease our minds with their Resort Responsibly initiative. I cannot recommend Woodloch more!  Visit at least once to experience all the resort has to offer for a fun family adventure. Yes, even during a global pandemic. You won’t regret it!”

“Came to Woodloch to mentally and physically recharge after months of being stuck at home. Even though many restaurants and stores have reopened where we live, life we needed a change of scenery and wanted to go somewhere where we could be outside, safely social distance and escape the daily routine, which feels like Groundhog Day. This was just what we needed.”

Being Summer Shores

“As we are all adjusting to a new normal, Woodloch is ensuring the safety of their guests as their number one priority. Woodloch has brought back their Woodloch Experience while encouraging their staff and guests to Resort Responsibly, which includes their promise to keep the safety of their guests, staff, and community clearly in focus at all times while maintaining a fun and value-packed vacation experience.”

“We knew we wanted to start traveling again, & we knew Woodloch would be the 1st place we would feel comfortable going. They have done an amazing job to welcome back guests to the resort with all the proper precautions in place. Upon arrival your temperature is checked, masks are required indoors & masks were also worn outdoors when social distancing could not be practiced. They have a new app to give you the daily dining room menu, also the app allows you to register in advanced for the activities you want to limit crowds (we were the ONLY family doing any activity we signed up for at that allotted time).”

““I wish we could stay here forever”. This couldn’t be more true right now. With everything going on in the world these past few months I sometimes wish I could just escape it all! This trip has been the perfect getaway that we needed. I know many people are weary to travel with the potential of unexpectedly being placed in an environment with crowds of people. But here at Woodloch, everything is so spread out with limits on capacity for all of their indoor and outdoor spaces.”

💜☀️ Not a bad view! Staying at woodloch in Pennsylvania. First trip away in months and it feels weird given the circumstances, but so good to get away. 😃 Would normally be flying back to England to see family or flying elsewhere, but opted for a social distancing vacation much closer to home. Looking forward to mentally and physically recharging. #changeofscenery #thegreatoutdoors #socialdistancingvacay #coronacation #weekendaway #familytravel #familyresort #poconosweekend #lakesideview #familyvacation #familyadventures #familytime❤️ #wearamask😷 #blueskies #summertimefun #mywoodlochstory ...

First weekend of October means doing all the fall things! 🍁 We’re spending the weekend at Woodloch - the #1 Family Resort - and we are so excited to share our stay with you (peep my stories)! Between the indoor water park, activities like go carts + bumper boats, and eating whatever sweets + treats their hearts desire, the girls have been in heaven! 💦 The property has taken careful measures to ensure guest + staff safety and we’re so grateful to get away in nature for a few days as a family 🧡 #mywoodlochstory #hosted ...

Can not wait to get back to our happy place, woodloch 🛶!!! But until then, one can dream ☁️! Here’s the latest update on our favorite spot: During their closure, they have been moving full speed ahead with their "Woodloch at Home" programming and trying to do as much as they can for their staff and the local community. They’ve also added brand new merchandise on their woodlochshoppes store, and everything is 15% off. Their hope is to be able to reopen June 1, but because the situation is rapidly evolving, they will continue to post updates on their website regularly. 🤞🏻 . . . #healthylife #healthyliving #woodlochresort #woodlochathome #veganblogger #woodloch #whatveganseat #plantbased #plantpower #plantbaseddiet #photooftheday #plantbasedlife #plantbasednutrition #healthnut #healingnaturally #veganfoodporn #healthyfood #healthiswealth #plantbasedmom #veglife #veganglutenfree #eatwell #plantbasedvegan #instamood #veganfoodie #veganfoodlover #wellnesswarrior #wellnessjourney #wellnesslifestyle #healthiswealth ...

It’s a beautiful day...We figured its best to go somewhere where we’d be outside all the time at the moment. We’ve found our way around the resort now and we’ve been outside all day long. At the lake, by the pool and doing various activities like archery, paddle boats and go karting. Good to see the staff are fairly strict about wearing masks unless you’re in the water or not near other people. #familytravel #familyvacation #socialdistancingescape #lakesidevibes #familyresorts #familyadventures #familyfun #andrelax #weekendescape #mywoodlochstory #paradisewithoutsteppingonaplane ...
