It is cold, and you want to go on vacation. The thought of sandy beaches, pina coladas, and spa treatments swim before your eyes. That is, until your three-year-old pulls your hair. Oh yes, that’s right. You are a mother of three on a tight budget.

The standard Google and Trip Advisor research will provide you with ample choices, but how do you know which one is right for your family? The DeNeen family took a risk with the Woodloch Pines Resort in Pennsylvania and was happily surprised. It may not be a tropical location, but is sure to provide you and your family with the relaxation and fun you need without breaking the bank.

Some important details for those considering Woodloch as a destination:

Location: Hawley, Pennsylvania in the Pocono Mountains.
Best Time to Get a Good Deal: Midweek packages in the winter (often times they have a kids free special). Specials start around $600.00 for a two-night, three day package with two adults and two children.
Resort Type: All inclusive. Meals, room, and amenities all included in package price.

The resort is known for its hospitality. Every staff member you meet during your vacation is sure to be professional, helpful, and hilarious. A list of activities is given to each family at breakfast, outlining the schedule for the day. Games, competitions, sports, snow tubing, scavenger describe the imagehunts, ice skating, go-carts, bumper cars, petting zoo, and crafts are all a daily part of the schedule during the winter months. Families who travel in the summer will find even more options with lakeside recreation. In addition to the daily changing activities, the indoor pool, indoor sprinkler area, indoor jungle gym, exercise room, game rooms, shows, and movies ensure that there will never be a dull moment. Woodloch promises to provide activities for all ages.

The rooms are clean and spacious, especially if you stay in a suite. Every room has a fridge as well for stashing those late night snacks and drinks. All Woodloch Pines guests enjoy a meal plan included in their package. Relax in the warm and cozy dining room with your family. Characters in costume are sure to stroll by your table, and illicit giggles and excitement from your children. Much like a cruise, you are assigned a table and a server during your stay, and they will work hard to find that certain food for your picky toddler. Portions are generous, and the quality is excellent.

No matter the season, Woodloch resort guests are greeted with quality staff, food, games, and amenities for families of all sizes and ages. Book your trip today, and you won’t be disappointed!
