We Went Back!
We had to go back, this time with our 3 year-old twins! The first time Rob and I visited a beautiful resort just under an hour from where we live; we went solo, but instantly new we had to go back as a family. After leaving this time, I believe we have found a new family holiday tradition.
Rob and I LOVE to travel and vacation. We believe in experiences, creating memories and being an active family whenever we can. Both our schedules are busy, but flexible. Having flexibility really benefits us as we can fit in getaways and catch great deals.
Every year before the twins were born, my husband and I traveled together. I’d like to say that we jet-setted all over the states or world, but we became addicted to Vegas (heck we got engaged in Vegas and spent part of our Honeymoon there).
Now our vacations are about family and Woodloch Resorts is truly, in my opinion the #1 family resort in Pennslyvania. Even better….it’s ALL INCLUSIVE!
We live in the Poconos and are pretty familiar with the area in terms of things to do and places to visit, but we had no clue that one of the best resorts was right at our fingertips. When we discovered it, it looked pretty spectacular and unique—even better, they offered an all-inclusive option—Yes, an all-inclusive in the United States, my friends.
Add in the holiday decor, it’s magical at woodloch!
I can share numerous highlights about this resort, including perhaps one or two notes to make if you are attending as a couple vs. as a family:
Family Vacation: All-Inclusive Located in The Poconos of Pennsylvania
Holy cannoli (as this is my new Mommy appropriate saying instead of holy sh*t). Sorry, I had to get that out because my kids aren’t reading this. This place is LOADED with really cool and fun activities for all ages.
Light show during the holiday
Ice Skating Rink
Go-karts (kid version and adult version)
I’m telling you, this list doesn’t even cover all that Woodloch has to offer.
Couples All-Inclusive Vacation
Woodloch is simply ideal for relaxing, and quality time together as a couple. If you’re looking for night clubs and dancing, this is not the place, unless you find their hidden club and stumble upon your own dirty dancing moment.
If you’re looking for great food, coziness, a warm welcoming feeling, and straight up quality time together, this is the place.
Woodloch happens to own a few properties and they DO have an ADULT-only location, The Lodge at Woodloch: A Destination Spa.
Note: I’d heard and read about instances where guests were confused as to which venue to stay at. Woodloch Pines and The Inn at Woodloch are actually located on the same property; they’re just comprised of different buildings at that same locale.
While The Inn at Woodloch does not have any guest accommodations, it is home to two dining rooms and a country store and deli. The Inn is used primarily for weddings and special events year-round and offers extra dining space in the summer and during holidays.
Woodloch Springs is the country club / golf club about 2 miles away from Woodloch Pines. The adults-only spa, The Lodge at Woodloch, is located right across from the golf course.
Rob and I can’t wait to head back to Woodloch with the twins again this next year because…here’s the BEST part…children under the age of 3 are accommodated for FREE! And I promise there is just as much fun in store for those 3 and under to have a blast!
My favorite is the dining!
As a family, you are assigned a table and you eat at that same table during your entire stay. It’s ads that “home” feeling—family dinner feeling. In addition, the all you can eat home-style food is a bonus.
As you can see, I’m gushing about Woodloch, and if given the chance, I could sing it’s praises some more. Whether you choose Woodloch Pines or the Inn, you and your family are in for a treat at this prize resort.
BONUS: I could write a separate article on the beautiful history of the resort. Each room has a history book with a love story in it—perfect with a glass of wine! I’m not telling what happens, you must visit and read it 😉
