5 Reasons Why Families Need To Visit Woodloch Resort

Winter is coming!  Actually it’s HERE!  That’s why parents are scrambling to find fun ways to keep their kids entertained and happy cuz baby it’s cold outside!  And with multiple winter breaks like: the holidays, MLK day, Presidents Day weekend and school’s official winter and spring breaks, the pressure is on to find ways to pass the time with kids!  Woodloch Resort saves the day (and the weekend!).  It’s just 90 minutes outside of Manhattan in the Poconos area of Pennsylvania and it takes care of all of your family needs while ensuring a fun-filled winter getaway!  Below are 5 reasons you too must try it out!

  1.   It’s rated as the #1 family resort in the U.S! You heard that right!  Both USA Today and Traveler’s Choice singled out Woodloch Resort as the best place for families to vacation!  And to further reinforce those rave reviews, infamously critical Yelp reviewers averaged a 4.5 star (out of 5) rating!  It clearly is a people pleaser! And I can see why!  With the most abundant list of activities, delicious food, spacious accommodations, and the most welcoming staff, you really feel like you’ve come home (if home was a cozy spot with maids, housekeepers, nightly entertainment and non-stop fun! hahawoodloch pines, woodloch spa, woodloch resort, poconos hotels, best family vacation, best family resort, all inclusive resort
  2. FUN FUN FUN!  You cannot be bored here.  There is something for everyone, at really, every age! The indoor / outdoor list of play options (of 30+ daily activities) will blow your mind.  Here, parents don’t have to worry about how to pass the long days, weekends, or breaks!  Woodloch has it all figured out!  Toddlers will enjoy the splash zone, 1′ wading pool, outdoor playground, indoor toddler play gym, petting zoo, pony rides, magic shows and baby bumper cars.  Little kids will enjoy the pool’s slide and indoor pool, driving their own bumper car and gokarting on their own (if 48″ or taller), the kids club, ice skating for the first time with balance beams, the arts and crafts room, and 3-level climbing gym.  woodloch pines, woodloch spa, woodloch resort, poconos hotels, best family vacation, best family resort, all inclusive resortOlder kids will love the: go karting, silent disco dance nights,  archery, trivia, wiffle ball, bocce ball, the escape room and paintballing.  This isn’t even mentioning the fun-for-all ages: snow tubing, scavenger hunts, minute-to-win-it games, arcade, kareoke, bowling, putt putt, and family-friendly contests.  (phew that was a lot, right?) woodloch resort, woodloch, woodloch pines, poconos weekend, road trips from nyc When the weather warms up, they also offer: water-skiing, fishing, kayaking, clay shooting, boating, hiking, summer Olympics, ziplining and MORE!  Imagine trying to check off all those activities in one weekend.  You’d be hustling around town non-stop whereas here, everything is walkable or just a short shuttle bus ride away.  Trust me, your kids will never want to leave.  And nobody will believe how much fun you managed to pack into each day!
  3. The food is delicious! The yummy meals had us all leaving 5 lbs heavier I think.  Who could resist when the 3 course meals felt so homemade with love?  The selection was well -received even amongst us two families at the table with picky little eaters.  And the desserts and baked goods were to die for! AHHHh..  We ate SO much at every meal that we started realizing we could have easily gotten away with the 2 meal-a-day plan.  Surely we would have reached our daily allowance for calories even with just 2 meals but it was the weekend and we were on vaca…(vaca calories don’t count, right??)  With 4 restaurants and 3 additional spots for a quick snack or drink, you and the kids will always be able to find something!woodloch pines, woodloch spa, woodloch resort, poconos hotels, best family vacation, best family resort, all inclusive resort
  4. The service is incredibly warm, welcoming and genuine.  Us Manhattanites have gotten somewhat used to poor service, rude strangers and pushing and shoving in the subway trains.  So it is always with great pleasure and gratitude that we receive such nice service!  Everyone at Woodloch from the front desk staff to the waiters and greeters were so friendly and smile-y you felt like you were immediately welcomed into the Woodloch family!  woodloch pines, all inclusive family resort, poconos hotel, poconos for families, what to do in the poconos, woodloch spa, best family resorts Speaking of welcomes, did you know that costumed characters surprise you at every meal?  The kids loved seeing the likes of Paw Patrol and other familiar faces greeting them at the dining room.  Woodloch’s resort is a family-owned and operated resort (since 1958), something they are proud to highlight.  And everything from the family-style meals, family-oriented games and contests serve to emphasize their value on family time.  It’s no wonder families repeatedly visit, each time adding more families and friends to their stay.  Generations have been making Woodloch Resort their vacation destination of choice and their family reunion spot for years! The decor even has the nostalgic feel of visiting grandma and grandpa’s house.  It definitely has its own hospitable charm!woodloch pines, woodloch spa, poconos, family vacation ideas, family poconos,
  5.  The grounds are vast and beautiful.  We stayed in the Springbrook suite overlooking the lake and gorgeous grounds.  It had a terrace and amazing light would shine through our room.  Having just come from the concrete jungle of Manhattan, I really appreciated my vast view.  I saw that there was a walking trail around the lake and imagined how beautiful it would be when warmer- especially when the fall foliage bloomed in vibrant colors.  (I’ll have to return in the fall!)  With their outdoor rock climbing wall, championship golf course, and endless water sports, there are various ways to enjoy the view!  If nature and peace are what you’re looking for in a getaway, this Poconos destination can give you that peaceful pristine mountain / lake vacation you want!
