“First time visitors...family vacation.”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Our family was looking for a family resort in Pennsylvania or NY State as we were traveling to the east coast from Ohio. We found Woodloch and decided to give it a try. We choose the 3 night 4 day package so we could get a feel for the place. Our family had a wonderful time. The lake was pristine. The service was absolutely fabulous. And our accommodations were perfect for our family. We choose the Edge Water Suite - Mountain Laurel. It was beautiful. You could see the lake while sitting on the private balcony and we were close to the pools. They had shuttle vans that would take you between buildings if you didn't want to walk the property which makes it great for smaller children or grandparents. They think of pretty much everything and are very accommodating. We had to get our oldest son to the bus station to get a bus back to NYC and they actually had one of their employees drop him off for us. If you get a chance, stop by and see Dennis at the nightclub bar. He is a wealth of information as were all the employees. The housekeeping staff were so sweet and thorough. The wait staff wonderful. There were tons of activities for the kids to do or not. One of our favorite was the cake wars. Tons of people joined in and it was great fun. We also did bingo, as well as the carnival and concerts. They had a several great shows especially the 80's show. Great job by the cast and crew. Lastly, when you read what people say about them treating you like family, it is very true. You could do a lot or a little, it was up to you. Thank you to the family and staff at Woodloch for making our trip a memorable one.

Thank you very much for your thoughtful review! We are so glad to hear how much you enjoyed your first stay with us. Woodloch is built on the principal of spending valuable family time together and making memories that will last a lifetime. We have put family first since we opened over 50 years ago, and our staff goes out of their way to make our guests feel completely at home. And we’re glad you got to meet Dennis during your first stay – he is really wonderful and knows so much about Woodloch (as you found out)!

Thank you again, and we hope to see you back again soon!

Our extended family of 12 has been coming to Woodloch for the past 6 years. We all stay in a house on the Lake and we eat two of our meals at the Inn. We range in age from 5 to 78 and there is something for everyone. The food is great, the accommodations are comfortable, and it gives our family one time a year to gather together to bond over games, the pool and many activities. Every year as our kids get older we get to explore new activities. The fun starts at 10:30 am, so make sure the day you check in - you're there to join the fun. I love how activities stop so people can eat and they start right up again when dinner is over.
The beach is very nice and clean. The water is lovely. The pool is really nice as well.
The staff is amazing, so helpful and they seem to really enjoy there jobs, or they're taking happy pills. But truly I think they love seeing the same people return year after year. The owners are at the resort every day, visiting tables at breakfast and dinner, making sure our stay is what it should be.
If you want an amazing place to bond with your family Woodloch is the place to go. Our kids talk about going all year long, they can't wait to get there.

My husband and I have been lucky enough to have had six grandchildren in the past six years. When our twin grandsons were born seven months ago we never thought we would be able to have a family vacation that could accommodate all of us. We were wrong!
We just returned from spending five days of activities that were geared to each adult and child. Cribs were provided in the rooms. The staff was attentive at each activity. We were able to be comfortable in the dining room, and the menu was designed for the adults and the children, as well.
I was able to attend yoga, Pilates and exercise classes by myself. Then I enjoyed a full day of water activities with the family. In the evening there were amazing magic shows, musical shows, bingo, movies, that could be enjoyed with or without the children.
We love cruising and taking vacations to distant places. However, Woodloch is the place to go with a family. There is no airport hassle or time wasted. The resort is run by professionals and is visited by refined families.
I would definitely recommend it!

I can't believe I never heard of this resort having lived in NY over 50yrs. It was recommended by a friend for my family's annual vacation and I can't thank her enough! We quickly went from our family to a "Family Reunion" of 23 people. There was SOMETHING for EVERYONE, and watching the next 2 generations interact, get to know each other and have a great time was the icing on the cake. The rooms were spacious and well designed. We dined at The Inn where each meal was a pleasure, especially with a large diverse group from 6 mos-75 yrs. The enormous Staff at WP are friendly, courteous and helpful. The children all want to "do it again." We hired their recommended Photographer and have fabulous family pictures and memories to treasure.

We found this to be a wonderful place to visit with children of all ages because of the many activities and the ease of getting around. We have been going there for 20 years and each year we count the days until we go. Our group now numbers around 35 and there is something for everyone. They have a kids club for little ones, great Olympics on Fridays, Pool games on Thursday, etc. Evening entertainment for those who like it is also available. There are so many things to write that I would suggest visiting the website to find out more.
