Where to Unwind this Summer

This summer is all about exploring, having fun, and creating new memories. A perfect place to relax and rejuvenate is The Lodge at Woodloch. Woodloch is the largest resort in Pennsylvania and people travel from all over to stay there. From kayak rides to Swedish massages, it’s the ideal place to wind down and take in all things nature. For this trip, you will need a cute bathing suit, a tote bag to hold your water and camera, and sneakers for when you’re going on a soothing bike ride or sweating it up in a total body workout class.

The three days I spent at Woodloch was just the right amount of time to focus on my health and well-being as well as use creative outlets to reconnect with nature. I realized how much I enjoy art and how many different mediums you can use to create it. I took many classes like watercolor painting, intro. to drawing, pastels, and more. I even learned to make a dreamcatcher utilizing material similar to what Native Americans used.

In addition to arts and crafts, I spent a lot of time outside and participating in various forms of exercise. One outdoor pastime I enjoy is kayaking. At Woodloch, they have a vast lake where you can rent kayaks, paddle boards, and more. While floating around on the lake, I came across beautiful colored birds and heard the faint clamor of bustling beavers from the inland. I was also able to try a pool workout, a barre class that combined ballet and yoga, and practice my old archery skills on their range.

Aside from learning new skills and challenging my body, I also treated it with delicious foods and spa amenities. The food served is all natural and they offer vegan choices and accommodate those with gluten or other food allergies. They believe in getting their food from farm to table and even have a garden and honey bee hives that they use in some of their signature dishes.

If you’re looking for a blissful vacation that leaves you re-energized, then The Lodge at Woodloch is the place for you. Don’t be afraid to try new things, put your cell phone down, and most importantly order the chocolate mousse dessert.
