This was our first trip to @woodloch, a beautiful four-season family resort nestled in a pristine mountain lake vacation setting in the Pocono Mountains.
Overall, our family thoroughly enjoyed all of various daytime activities and nighttime entertainment Woodloch has to offer.
Thank you to Woodloch for hosting our family and for making us feel so welcome and safe in the midst of a pandemic.
Our Life in Pieces
Sometimes life gets so crazy that we forget how beautiful the world really is. I’m thankful the @woodloch helped us remember.⠀
The last few days here have been so wonderful and each ended with a spectacular sunset. The Woodloch Resort was truly the perfect mix of fun and relaxation. Watch my highlights to see it all.
When was the last time you watched the sunset?
This fall, my family was able to spend a relaxing, responsible weekend at our favorite place on earth, Woodloch. A family resort in the Pocono Mountains with dozens of activities, great food and space to spread out. We have visited Woodloch during every season over the course of about 15 years. It is simply the best.
We decided to do something fun and different for Halloween weekend, so we packed our bags and went to @woodloch – the #1 ranked Family Resort in America! It’s full of amazing activities like indoor water park, petting zoo, jungle gyms, basketball courts, bumper cars and more! They take COVID-19 safety very seriously with sterilizing, social distancing and mask rules. The food is delicious (especially the bakery) and service goes above and beyond.
Never in my life have I ever felt so welcomed and accommodated. You feel like you’re an old friend visiting, it’s really something special. The amount of activities to do is just out of this world, ice skating, go-karts, bumper cars, swimming, splash zone, magic shows, trivia, hiking, snow tubing, & so much more. Every morning at breakfast we were greeted by our server. She had the kids special request of hot cocoa and a mound of whipped cream ready and cooled down. I really recommend them for family-friendly fun and memories or even just couples looking to escape to a special place.
Below are some of our biggest fans and a little bit of what they have to say about Woodloch.

““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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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!”

“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).”

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.
