Family Friendly Weekend Getaways: Visiting Woodloch Resort


This past weekend we had the pleasure of visiting Woodloch Resort – & USA Today’s pick for #1 Family Resort in America !

The exceptional four-season Poconos family resort is located about a two and a half hour drive from northern NJ. The resort can be summed up as comfortable, friendly, inviting and family oriented.

We had the opportunity to stay in the Edgewater Suites (pictured below). Our room was a one-bedroom suite located at Woodloch Pines in the Springbrook building. These rooms are absolute gems for those with children due to them having indoor access to the indoor pool complex, indoor laundry area within walking distance from the suite, indoor excercise area and indoor splash zone area and game room. The suite featured 2 queen beds in a large bedroom with lakefront views and a queen pullout coach and regular couch in a large living room area. The area featured a pocket room door divider to close off the bedroom from the living area at night as well as black-out curtains. Our living area boasted some amazing lakefront views compete with a private balcony with seating and a drying station for wet towels and swimsuits. The suite had two televisions, two bathrooms (one in the bedroom with a bathtub/shower and one in living area with large handicap accessible shower), and loads of closet space (YES ! a walk in closet). I was also such a fan of the loads of natural light and ample lighting at night. I truly felt like I was at home and there was plenty of room for the three of us (toddler included) to come back to the room, relax and not feel like we were on top of each other.

The dining experience while at Woodloch is truly next level. You have the same waiter and the same table for all meals during your stay at Woodloch which creates a fun and inviting environment. You know exactly where to sit and you are able to create a relationship with your waiter/ waitress as the days go by. [ This is also a PRO for those with little ones as your children get to bond with familiar settings while dining ]

Dining with children is HARD as it is and the setting at Woodloch Resort makes things comfortable and enjoyable.

Woodloch offers several savory and delectable dining options. Between the traditional style of dining at the Main Dining Room and Inn or A La Carte Dining at one of Woodloch’s restuarants, there is surely something for everyone !

Restuarants at Woodloch Resort include:

  • Tree Restuarant
  • The Grille Room
  • The Overlook Restuarant
  • The Boathouse Restuarant
  • The Country Store and Market
  • Gigi’s Coffee House

Our favorite meals while visiting were Breakfast. From the coffee to the baked goods – everything was perfect ! We also got to enjoy one of Woodloch Resort’s signature Theme Nights – 90’s Night. The dining area was fully decorated, featured characters from the 90’s for the children AND adults to interact with as well as featured some fun drinks and meal items that were on theme with the 90’s ! The Main Dining area is right around the corner from a Children’s Craft Room and a beautiful deck / seating area with fire pits that allow you to enjoy some incredible sunsets around dinner time.

I used both of these areas to give my daughter a little break to get some energy out while we were eating (pictured below).
