Trip Report Short report from a short spa trip in the Poconos

Jump to last reply

I'm resubmitting this as a trip report for anyone who might be interested or who helped me to carry it out. thanks.

bmw732002: We're back just half an hour ago from the Lodge at Woodloch, and I can't thank you enough for the suggestion!!

It FAR surpassed my hopes for a winter getaway!

DH, who is definitely NOT a spa-goer could not find anything wrong at ALL. (well, he said, maybe another hook on the wall in the bathroom.)

It is gorgeous, it is extremely well staffed with lovely friendly, but not in-you-face people, who are knowledgeable and helpful. (not only was our car cleaned of any snow, it was driven down to the door, and warmed up for us, while they stowed our luggage exactly where we wanted it!)

The food was probably the biggest surprise. It was so delicious, and DH called it an "excellent restaurant" in its own right. This is high praise from a man who never diets, never exercises (believes its all in the genes and his parents lived almost forever) and though very sweet, usually has many minor complaints. Nary a one for this place, (except the hook) and he said he'd even go back. (He's thinking GOLF in the spring, of course!)

I loved the classes I took: (best water aerobics I ever had) also good Pilates, and a marvelous state of the art gym. The pool is divine - take a look at the web site. www.lodgeatwoodloch.com

I was sort of hoping we'd get marooned up there in the Poconos, but we had to get out today as planned, because there is a worse storm coming, so they say.

It is way up in the middle of nowhere, which is the only possible drawback, and driving up Route 6 west from Milford, Pa. is a bit depressing, but you forget all that as soon as you get there.

Many, many thanks for the help in finding this place I had NEVER even heard of. Fodorites are amazing!
