Wintertime is always a season of slowing down and dreaming of warm destinations. But what if you can’t get to a warm destination? The next best thing is a family-friendly resort in the Mountains. Woodloch Resort has everything to keep a family with young children happy on vacation, while allowing plenty of family time and keeping the parents entertained at the same time.
Woodloch Resort is located in Hawley, PA. A scenic landscape around Lake Teedyuskung makes every room from the resort have a relaxing view of the woods and water. If you live in the Northeast, it’s easily accessible as a road trip with your family. We drove from Boston and made it in under 4 hours, both ways.
Winter at Woodloch
Seasonally, the outside activities will differ, but in the Winter, Woodloch has plenty. Ice skating (skate rentals are $5), go-carts, snow tubing, and archery. Inside the resort they have bumper cars, a climbing rock wall, mini bowling alley, an arcade, arts and crafts room, paintball, and an indoor play-space. In addition to their indoor pool and splash-pad.
Each day you pick up your daily itinerary, which outlines the days events, times that each activity is available through and who is performing in their live theater in the evening shows. Family is at the heart of Woodloch. It was founded and has been run by the same family since 1958. Family competitions are arranged to play together during the day and everyone can join in!
Dining at Woodloch
Woodloch Resort is an All American Plan, which basically means, All inclusive. You can purchase the 2 or 3 meal plan (we had the 3 meal plan). Dining at Woodloch is absolutely enjoyable, the first evening of your reservation, you show up in the dining hall and they’ll seat you at your table for the duration of your stay. After that first meal, you just help yourself to your table when you show up to eat. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner times are set on the daily schedule and you can show up to eat any time within that hour. The menu will always be waiting for you at the table. You choose from a couple of appetizer options, 4-5 main course options and a dessert. The children have a separate menu or they can order from the adult menu. All of your beverages, aside from alcohol, are included in the All American Plan. If you opt to not have all 3 meals a day as part of your Woodloch package, you can easily find other places to eat at one of their many other restaurants throughout their property.
Family-sized rooms can be hard to come by, but at Woodloch they expect you to be with your family so they’ve got plenty of space for you all. Our room had a living room with a pull-out bed in the sofa, along with two full size beds in the bedroom. Two bathrooms in the room made a family of six quite happy!
Woodloch makes for a wonderful place to make some family memories, in any season, but winter is definitely not to be overlooked! Thanks for having us Woodloch!
