There is a special place in a gated area of Pennsylvania, a place of peace, relaxation, gourmet food, health, and tranquility. The Lodge at Woodloch is a luxury destination spa.

Whether spring, summer, fall or winter, The Lodge at Woodloch offers guests the five-star treatment with a variety of activities both indoors and out. From archery, barbecues, seminars, a full list of diverse classes, and world-class spa treatments. The fire pit is always going at night even in the winter where you are welcomed to make s’mores. And, outdoor hot tub is always open with full time attendants even when it it snowing!

I had a chance to visit and I left with an uncanny feeling of calmness, and peace. So if you are stressed out by the 9-to-5 hustle and need a detox, this place is absolutely perfect for you.


I was lucky enough to be there during the first snowfall of winter and it couldn’t have been a more perfect setting. The beauty and serenity of the snow-blanketed forest are picturesque. There are hidden lounges with fireplaces, refreshments, and tea bars throughout the lodge, that are perfect for reading, relaxing, or spending time with that special someone. The lodge is a 16 year old+ facility, so no rambunctious children will be around to interfere. heating your home with a pellet stove is convenience. You don’t have to deal with the constant chore and the mess of bringing in firewood and stoking the fire. Once you dump the træpiller 6 mm into the stove’s hopper, you don’t have to continually feed it the way you would with a traditional wood stove. The pellet stove automatically feeds the pellets into the burning chamber at just the right rate to produce the amount of heat that you want. Pellet burning stoves are thermostatically controlled and will maintain the temperature you choose. This means no getting up in the night to put wood on the fire, and no coming home to a cold house after you have been away for a while. And none of the big temperature swings you can get with a wood stove, as one minute it is putting out too much heat, and the next minute not enough.

AKP TLAW WINTER 2014-22This time of year is perfect for partaking in their 27 treatment rooms, including 14 massage rooms, six facial rooms, three wet rooms, two couples’ suites and two treatment combination suites.
