The Woodloch Resort in the Poconos, established in 1958, provides a spectacular, all-purpose getaway for every age group and every interest, whether it’s a luxurious spa weekend, a children’s birthday party, a sporting weekend, a foodie paradise experience, a teen weekend away, playing on a championship golf course – or a combination of all of the above for family reunions, destination weddings, corporate retreats, and birthday parties. There’s something specific to savor at Woodloch for every season, too.
The Woodloch Resort offers three award-winning properties: a lakeside mountain resort, a championship golf course, and a destination spa. The amenities are plentiful, and the activities are broad and myriad. I took three male teens (17 years and 18 years) to Woodloch for a weekend to celebrate an 18th birthday, and there wasn’t a dull moment. A birthday ice cream cake was presented after dinner, which was incredibly thoughtful and underscores the warmth of the Woodloch staff.
