It’s the end of September . . . that means we’re heading right into peak fall foliage season, which is the perfect time to get out and explore the Pocono Mountains. Book your stay at Woodloch this harvest season and enjoy the leaf peeping getaway you’ve always imagined!

Autumn here at Woodloch is inspirational! See the beauty of the landscape as the lush summer greens transform into warm undertones of vibrant reds, yellows, and oranges.

Did you know that Woodloch Resort is in the northern region of the Poconos? That means we get hit with peak foliage season first, before anyone else in the area! Prime time is the second week in October. Keep your eyes on the leaves as they change daily.

 With over 127 different species of trees throughout the Pocono Mountains, you’ll soak up a large variety of colors. Some of the leaves that you’ll be able to spot far and wide are the Red Maples; you can’t miss their bright red coloring. Another red variety is the Sumac, which can turn from a gorgeous red to a dark mulberry this time of the year. Some Sugar Maple, Silver Maple, and Black Cherry trees transform into a stunning yellow while others remain a beautiful light green.

There are many different ways to experience the topography here at Woodloch.

  • Hit the road for a fun mid-day drive through the mountains
  • Lace up those boots for a hike and enjoy the canopy from below
  • Grab a paddle for a view from the lake
  • Head towards the sky for an amazing bird's-eye view

Go for a drive; we recommend it! Route 6, Casey Highway, Route 29, Bear Lake, and Bear Creek Road are all wonderful areas in our region to see the foliage.

Find your favorite leaf to bring home from your travels, or bring a guide book along on your trek and see how many trees you can spot changing color.

Before the weather turns chilly and the snow starts to fall, head out on the lake for one last kayak or canoe trip. You’ll see the wonderful fall colors as they dance across the blue waves. The contrast of oranges and blues make for a perfect photo opportunity!

If the land doesn't intrigue you, hit the sky for an aerial view of the Pocono Mountains. Experience the thrill of the landscape from above as one colorful masterpiece.

Whether you choose the ground, the lake, or the sky as a means to view fall’s glory in the Pocono Mountains, just make sure you don’t miss out!

Find your picture-perfect fall moment this harvest season at Woodloch. We can’t wait to help you create some of your favorite memories!

Why Woodloch is the Best!

 Last year, TripAdvisor gave us the #1 ranking for Best Family Resort in America.

That’s a pretty big honor…

So we got to thinking, what makes Woodloch so special that we are ranked #1?

Woodloch is all sorts of fun. We’re UNIQUE.

Unlike your typical, all-inclusive, family resorts, we literally have it all.   

So, here is the bigger question - what set’s Woodloch apart from other resorts?

  • Exciting family-friendly activities that you won’t find anywhere else
  • The landscape of the Poconos is beautiful
  • We’re not just about families; we dig weddings and corporate events as well!
  • Our Staff

Our goals are for you to go home with long-lasting memories. These four reasons, among many others, are why Woodloch is the best.

Let’s break these four reasons down further. First, our activities . . . there is so much to do here that you might not be able to fit all the fun into one weekend!

You can try just about anything your heart desires here at Woodloch. Want to get down and dirty with a rugged game of paintball? You got it! Want to learn how to rock-climb? We can teach you!

You can even learn how to cook fantastic meals, paint, and experience wine tasting as part of our A.W.A.Y. program, which stands for “Art, Wine, Adventure, You.”

We have a world-class destination spa for those who want to enjoy some R&R. Fuzzy robes, cucumbers, tranquility . . . it’s all there for you!

With over 30 different activities, it’s hard to imagine how one could be bored at Woodloch. That doesn’t even include the additional activities packages that you can purchase to go along with your Woodloch Experience Bracelet.

Plus, our team is all about fun, and who doesn’t like fun? No matter what, your experience at Woodloch is important to us!

28786668353_4f476db2e1_z.jpgNestled in the Pocono Mountains, Woodloch is an excellent destination any time of year. Right now it’s mid-September, and we’re heading into fall. That means the leaves are changing colors and leaf peeping tours will begin. Believe us when we say, this is something you don’t want to miss!

With picture perfect views, activities that will get you out into the wilderness, and friendly staff, what more could you want?

AND, we’re not just about families! We may have won TripAdvisor’s award for the #1 Family Resort in America, but we also cater to large groups for events such as weddings and corporate retreats.

Those events are just as important to us here at Woodloch. Why? They bring people together. They learn, bond, and embrace the Woodloch lifestyle.

We are experts at FUN. Why wouldn’t you want to have your wedding or corporate event at Woodloch? Engage, energize, and entertain with family and friends. We want to celebrate life’s special moments along with you.

Finally, our staff is what makes people come back time and time again. We specialize in a specific brand of hospitality because we treat our guests like they are family. You’re not just going to any resort; you’re going to Woodloch. Here your family becomes our family. We are real and authentic.

Your experience is our experience, and it’s the absolute pinnacle of our success.

Novemberfest Heads to Woodloch

 We are ready to get our OOMPAH on... are you?

 

The leaves just started to turn. That means glorious things like football, Halloween and pumpkin spice EVERYTHING are not far off on the horizon! 

 

This Autumn, we are particularly excited to share a very special weekend with our guests! As a nod to the glory days of Woodloch past and as a celebration of Bavarian culture, Woodloch will be hosting our very first "NOVEMBERFEST WEEKEND" from November 20th - 22nd. Grab your leiderhosen and pretzels, because we're gearing up for quite the fun!

 

But first, abrief history lesson for you: Oktoberfest originated in Munich, Germany in 1810 as a celebration of Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese's wedding. The royal couple decided to share their special day with the ENTIRE city of Munich and invited everyone to a day full of delicious food and drink, fun and games, and a grand horse racing event (to showcase their prominent agricultural strenghts) to close everything up. With all of that considered, it seems to be a perfect fit for Woodloch and all of our guests. 

 

Untitled-2_0002_Lochtoberfest_0001_Layer-1-1024x640.jpg

Germans loved the festival so much that they made it a tradition- 6 million visitors from around the world migrate there every fall, but we're bringing all of the fun to the Pocono Mountains for you (think of all you'll save on airfare!)

 

So, what's "NOVEMBERFEST" all about?

  • Delicious German Food - enjoy Bavarian cuisine during a featured German Buffet in our dining room
  • Live Music from THE OOMPAH BOYS - there's nothing quite like the joyous sounds of German musical acts! They will be entertaining all with festive German staples, as well as your favorite pop and rock songs with a Munich twist!
  • Pub Games - our LEGEN- wait for it... DARY bar games for ADULTS ONLY! 
  • Das Bakery Blitz - load up on strudel, pretzels and Lebkuchen... The Bakery Wars are headed to Bavaria!
  • For the "Little Dumplings" - we've got carnival games and zee one & only Dr. Professor Balloonicus on call!
  • And Last but NOT LEAST - it simply wouldn't be Novemberfest without delicious mugs of BEER! We are pleased to inform you that our friends at The Irving Cliff Brewery (just down the road from us!) will be on the scene to not only share their infinite wisdom about custom craft brew beers but will also have several of their locally produced brews on hand... only available at Woodloch!

Untitled-2_0001_Lochtoberfest_0000_IMG_9277-1024x640.jpg

After debuting a "sampler" of our weekend during our Monday Night festival this summer, Woodloch is ready to go full throttle this autumn. We look forward to sharing this incredible weekend with you!

Until then... auf wiedersehen!

Woodloch Express: Fall Traveler Edition

Posted on Tue, Sep 13, 2016

29101843990_7148d97c17_z.jpgWoodloch Express: Fall Traveler Edition

Traveling out of state can be stressful, we know! It’s hard when you want to pack your entire life with you just for a weekend getaway.

Woodloch is an all-inclusive resort nestled in the Poconos region of Pennsylvania. Everything you need or would want to do is right at the tip of your fingers.

We know a thing or two about travelers. Around this time of year and into the holidays, travelers from all over the country flock to Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains to experience fall in all its glory. The fall scenery offers spectacular views. We’re sure you will get some amazing photos to show your friends back home.

Because we’re nestled in the mountains, the weather is often cooler here in autumn before the snow begins to dust the landscape. Make sure to pack warmer clothing. Comfy sweaters and longer shirts are always great options!

But, as always, check the weather forecast before you arrive!

A fall traveler’s to do list can include a fall foliage drive through the mountains. It’s amazing to see the color change take place so keep your eyes peeled towards the canopy. Leaf peeping tours are top notch in the Poconos and make for a romantic fall date idea for couples.29307768001_b062f62579_z.jpg

Get lost in a corn maze, and you'll realize just how important teamwork can be.

If you’re able to, set out and find the perfect seasonal adult beverage. And it’s always okay to get a little messy eating some caramel apples!

Even after school is in session, traveling is a great way to bond with the entire family. Fall incentives such as corn mazes, apple orchards, and family-friendly festivals keep travelers coming to the mountains.

In the fall, Woodloch offers a wide range of activities for every traveler’s needs. If you’re looking for something family-friendly to do, harvest festivals and farmer’s markets are great places to check out. Romantic getaways for couples can include wine and craft beer tastings. There are endless possibilities when you book your autumn trip at Woodloch.


Whether you’ve traveling near or far, we’re looking forward to getting to know you this fall!

Over the river and through the Pocono woodlands lies a remarkable landscape otherwise known as the sensationally secluded, and breathtakingly beautiful Woodloch resort. A natural canopy of trees encloses a serene chapel perfectly suited for a lovely couple on their wedding day. This place is off the beaten path in Hawley, Pennsylvania. There is a certain rustic romance unique only to Woodloch; no other experience is truly like it. The scenery of Lake Teedyuskung makes a stunning backdrop for exchanging vows. The wooded meadow along the lake transforms the outdoor setting into a sacred place fully furnished with an altar, aisle, seating arrangement, and virtually unlimited space for the ceremony, all of which can be personally customized!

 At Woodloch they go above and beyond! Their tagline speaks volumes; it’s not a venue, an experience. Any inspirations, ideas, dreams - they become a reality at Woodloch. The outdoor weddings are striking as is, but Woodloch takes it to a whole new level, where personal customization is limitless. From vintage to modern, rustic to elegant, colorful to simple, the pleasant and compliant Woodloch staff make anything possible on your special day.

After you meet the wedding coordinators, you’ll know this is the place for you! Their dedication and eager attitudes are something you need when planning a wedding. The best part is that they will always be there every step, hairdo, dress, of the way!

 

If you think you’ll be a bridezilla when planning your wedding, have no fear! The convenience of having a wedding at Woodloch is that it is a “one stop shop” place! They offer countless possibilities because they are an inclusive resort that stretches over 1,000 acres. There is a variety of options for a ceremony, reception, rehearsal dinner, after party, and even a morning-after breakfast.

 

Their ceremony locations include the Country Club at Woodloch Springs overlooking the rolling hills of the golf course, and/or the Lakeside at Woodloch Pines Resort with its majestic view of the sparkling lake. The Lakeview Dining Room, the Mountain Laurel Dining Room, and the Vista Terrace Dining Room are all amazing reception locations; the Lakeview Dining Room is more than accommodating for wedding guests.

There is an abundance of activities, entertainment, and amenities, including but not limited to golf, zip lining, bumper cars, trap shooting, late night shows, water skiing, and so much more! Consider this to be your first honeymoon, since Woodloch’s backyard is essentially a dream destination!

 

All in all, why a Woodloch Wedding? It’s simple. You want your wedding to be YOUR wedding – YOUR perfect day. Woodloch is in the business of making that happen. Being tucked deep within the woods, secluded from the hustle and bustle makes for an incredible getaway and unforgettable memories with your new spouse, family, and friends that you couldn’t imagine having anywhere else.

A Fun Family Resort in the Poconos

Posted on Tue, Aug 16, 2016

08_11_14_AKP_WLP_DAY_2-71.jpg

We’re in the dog days of summer and that means, the weather is a little bit hotter and the nights are just a bit cooler.

We’ve been thinking, what does the word fun truly mean?

According to Merriam-Webster, fun means “an enjoyable time” and “the feeling of being amused and entertained.”

To us, Woodloch means fun!

Here at Woodloch our version of fun is taken to a whole new level! We’re dedicated to family fun in the Pocono Mountain region of Pennsylvania. Have you heard about our leading activity programs? Whether you’re returning to Woodloch or you’re about to experience your first trip, we’ll make sure you enjoy your family vacation to the fullest extent.

What can you do with your family in the Poconos? Well, sit back and read on… Here are three reasons our resort encourages summertime, family fun!

Keep Your Eyes and Ears Open

You won’t be bored on your next visit to Woodloch. Everywhere you turn, you’ll find something new to try. Get in touch with your theatrical side for an experience you won’t forget.

Check out our fantastic Broadway style Theme Show and nightly entertainment the whole family will love. You’ll enjoy musical numbers, beautiful set designs, and great dancing on stage. Our theme this year focuses on the wonderful world of television.  The small screen wouldn’t do this big production of bright lights in the Poconos, justice.

 

Ab muscles beware before heading to see one of our acts featuring comedians and jugglers, because they’ll keep you laughing for days! If you’re looking for a roaring good time, these comedians will have you rolling in your seats laughing. A few of these entertainers are Chris Ivey, David Darwin, John Cassidy, and Ned Gelfars.

Did you know that Woodloch has also featured some comedy heavyweights; guys like Ray Romano and Tom Cotter cut their teeth in the Woodloch Nightclub!

 

Woodloch means fun, and fun means Woodloch!

Along with our amazing troupe of comedians and jugglers, have you seen our magicians? Or it’s possible that you… haven’t? They disappear on us sometimes!

Anthony Salazar, Jay Mattioli, and John Graham will delight you with their illusions and mystical imagination.

 

A Little Competition Never Hurt Anybody!

Teamwork is vital for our Olympics during your next family vacation or corporate retreatBring a sense of playful competition to your family at Woodloch. As we’re in the midst of celebrating this Olympic season, Woodloch showcases its own brand of international games.  Unite as a family by tackling big team events and see who goes for the gold!

Enjoy the thrill of discovery, athleticism, and competition? Then you’ll want to try our Amazing Races and Scavenger Hunts with your family. Sometimes all it takes is a little family bonding, over  healthy competition, to experience what FUN in the Poconos is all about.

Are you a trivia-family? Then check out Woodloch Feud. A Family Feud style event, where brains and wit come together! We might not have Steve Harvey to host this event, but we’ll make sure fun is number one on the list.

 

It’s Summer Fun All the Time

There is honestly so much to do at Woodloch that even this blog can’t contain it all! As the days get warmer, slide into the lake and cool off.

Enjoy some summertime fun with the whole family while it lasts. Our lake offers quite a few fun, there’s that word again, summertime activities. Try out kayaking, canoeing, or even water skiing for the more adventurous. Paddle boating is a great option to see the fall colors, once the leaves start changing.

While the lake may not be your favorite swimming hole in the winter (though ice skating is pretty rad), you can still make a big splash in a number of our indoor pools.  Our Kiddie Splash pools will be a big hit for the littlest members of your family, but there is plenty of fun for everyone in our larger pools and hot tubs.

Plus, we even have our new indoor corkscrew slide!


There is so much to do at Woodloch, your nights and days will be filled with family, laughter, and most of all, fun.


F is for friends and family!

U is for you (you = U) and me… at Woodloch!

N is for a-N-y time and a-N-ything at all (yeah, you get the point), here in the Poconos Mountains!


Bringing friends and families together is what we know best (and we’ve been doing it for 60 years now), and TripAdvisor.com agrees… being voted the #1 Family Resort in America has been an honor. Stop by with your family and experience the warm hospitality of an exceptional Poconos Family Resort.

Fairways for Freedom: Vets Get a Free Tune-up at Poconos Resort

Posted on Thu, Jul 14, 2016

Woodloch loves America, there’s no doubt about that. I mean just look at this photo of John Kisendahl (Our President & CEO). 

 Woodloch was founded on the American dream. Back in 1958 the Kiesendahl family came to Northeastern PA to start up their family run business with one year round employee and now we have...well you know the story, and if you don’t, check it out here…it’s pretty cool. Woodloch owes a lot of credit to someone out there for providing us this opportunity. This someone would be all of our veterans.

Veterans have always held a special place here at Woodloch. These past few years we have been ensuring they feel more welcome here than anywhere else. John Pillar our Director of Golf began hosting the Fold of Honor Golf Classic…honoring local heroes who have died giving their lives for our Freedom. Over the past three years the tournament has raised over $30,000 to help educate the family members of those veterans. John puts it this way, “We never want to forget the veterans of our local community who gave it all for us, so we are committed to honoring their legacy.” 

Now that the Folds of Honor Golf Classic has come and gone this summer, we are getting a little antsy and want to continue to give back to our local veterans. They give back to us every day so why can’t we do the same for them, right? That’s why we are launching a new program at Woodloch Springs called Fairways for Freedom. It’s a way for us to give thanks to you veterans. Through this program any veteran can come out and enjoy a free 20-minute tune up from any of our professional staff. What’s a tune up you ask? One of our professional staff will bring you down to our range for a private one on one lesson to “tune-up” your golf skills…and hey if your golf skills need a little more than a tune up (I know mine does) you can always extend your time. Once you're all ready and hitting the ball straight…or close to it, we’ll send you out on the course for discounted tee time rates.

Veterans are important to us at Woodloch and we just want to make sure you know that! So come out and hone in your skills…on us, for your dedication to our freedom.

COMING SOON TO A LAKE NEAR YOU: Woodloch Summer 2016 Preview PART 2

Posted on Fri, Jun 10, 2016

~shared by J. Ranner

“Pop in my CD and let me run a rhyme- and put your car on cruise and lay back cause this is SUMMERTIME”

- The Fresh Prince

Just when you thought things couldn’t possibly get any better… they absolutely can. 

A few weeks back, we were happy to announce that we would have all sorts of new and exciting games and events for you this summer on your Pocono mountain vacation. Well, guess what? The list just got a bit longer!

We’ll get right into it!

  • Kitchen Pandemonium – “Don’t play with your food!” Yeah… for anyone that’s tried our Bakery Wars, you already know that rule doesn’t apply to us! Bring your culinary skills and expertise to the North Lodge and try out this new competition!
  • “Spirited Art” – Speaking of food, I just KNOW there are a lot of wine fans out there! This summer, adults can grab a glass and a paintbrush to create a masterpiece with our instructor.
  • Boat Regatta – We’ve decided to share our most popular corporate teambuilding activity with our guests this summer! Fashion yourself a sloop out of our finest cardboard and test her seaworthiness… a treasure trove of gold medals awaits the champions!
  • Game Night – Sometimes, it seems like we’re all too reliant on our phones for entertainment. Therefore, Woodloch is kicking it old-school with Sunday Game Night! Kiddies will play a collection of classics (with a Woodloch spin!) while adults (and adults ONLY!) retreat to play our newest creation: Cards Against WOODLOCH!
  • New Nightly Acts – We’re gonna mix it up for everyone a bit this year. We’re happy to welcome a few NEW acts to the Woodloch stage for summer 2016, including acclaimed hypnotists, jugglers and comedians! And for those aspiring to one day take the Nightclub stage themselves… take the first step in doing so with our Balloon Workshop!
  • Killer Classics – You know all of those great Woodloch vacation memories you made with games like Double Dare, Pool Games and Olympics? Good news… they are ALL back for 2016 with ALL NEW challenges awaiting you! We’d let you know exactly what we mean… but we think it’s much better if we leave it a SURPISE!

It’s inching closer and closer by the second… and we can hardly contain our excitement! We are looking forward to celebrating a year like no other here with all of our guests… and, as always, it will be a pleasure to share it with you!

Everybody… HAVE A GREAT SUMMER!
