The Lodge at Woodloch

109 River Birch Lane, Hawley, Pennsylvania 18428


The Lodge at Woodloch is a luxury destination spa located in Hawley, PA .  For my Syracuse, NY readers, thats 3 1/2 hours away.  2 1/2 hours from NYC  – as a point of reference from the rest of the Northeast.  The closest airport to the lodge is the Wilkes Barre/Scranton International airport in Pennsylvania (55 minutes away).

This spa has been high on my wish list since before it opened in June of 2006.   Double occupancy rates here run $575 per person, per night on the weekends, exclusive of an 18% service charge and state and local taxes.  And that is in the off season.  What do you get for around $700 per person/per night?  The Complete Spa Plan includes:

  • Three gourmet meals daily, plus all non-alcoholic beverages.
  • Daily spa service allowance of $120.
  • Use of all spa and fitness facilities.
  • Scheduled group fitness classes, lectures and cooking demonstrations.
  • Selected guided group adventure excursions.
  • Personal Spa Concierge to help design your program

Is it worth it?  The awards and accolades just keep coming.  Tripadvisor.com awarded the Lodge at Woodloch one of the “Top 10 Spas in the World” .  Spa facilities consist of:
