... of E8s sitting in the parking lot. What a commuter vehicle those would make!
On Thursday, we bundled everything back up again and headed out for the Lancaster/Hershey area. Hope to get a ride on the Strasburg Railroad and see some of the sights in this part of the state. We hear it is considered the more picturesque part of the state. We'll see.
More from the road when we get to Lancaster.
... Nathan's Hot Dogs, Treachers Fish & Chips, and Subway. We settled for the hot dogs (two star food). Back at Steamtown we took the half and hour the train ride; I wandered around and took some picture; and we spent some money in the gift shop before heading to the hotel. (For the rest of the day see the hotel review.) Mary's Version My favorite part was the train ride. However, it did go back and forth over a bridge, (they were switching the train from one ...
That's right... three nights in a row without internet!
The first, at Monticello, their internet had gone down. The next, it was so slow I couldn't even access e-mails. Last night I was on the road.
But I assure you I have some great things to tell you all about my visit to Walkill, particularly Patterson and, finally, Brooklyn.
I should get these ready tonight... thanks for your patience.
... museum, whoo-hoo! I have to say that this is a very nicely done museum. Almost as impressive as the restored collection of equipment is the stuff sitting out in the rail yard waiting to be restored. Sadly most of this equipment may never be restored. We spent over four hours walking around, exploring the many educational displays and the collection of railroad equipment. Steamtown presents their collection much ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Woodloch Pines Resort Hawley
I'm sorry for breaking the string of 5 stars, but ....
Woodloch really is amazing, you are looking for a resort in the poconos the only choice is Wooldoch... it is a hidden gem... with no outside advertising its like an exsculsive club that only a select few know about. I have been going for 13 years and you never are bored. There are activities for everyone. We travel with a large group every year and we have someone from nearly every age group...
Visited Woodloch Pines for the first time 6/12-6/16. Woodloch is not just a vacation as much as it is an experience. Family and friends thought that I was a bit crazy to plan a vacation 800 miles away in PA to an all inclusive resort and town that none of them had ever heard of. The family (myself, wife and six year old) spent the week in a Timbeline unit (Classic standard level room). The unit had a homey lodge feel to it and provided plenty of room for the three of us and provided a central location which made access to all areas of the resort a quick walk. The level of hospitality at Woodloch Pines is at a level that I have never experienced. From reception upon check-in to reception upon check-out we were continually greeted with a smile and hello by all staffers that we encountered. This hospitality seemed to be infectious as it carried over to virtually all of the guests that we encountered as well. From the moment you arrive there are a multitude of activities for all ages to enjoy. Visit the Edge portion of their website to view the daily activities list. Whether 6 or 60 you will never be bored here. The nature of the resort reinforces the connection of family, and participating in activities as a family. Countless numbers of medals are presented throughout the week for various games and contests and soon become the prized possessions of all. The social staff does an excellent job of creating activities for all ages and levels to enjoy. Meals are bountiful and of high quality with an excellent wait staff. Evenings were filled with a variety of shows and activities that kept us all entertained. Midway through the week my 6 year old asked when we were coming back. Needless to say, we have already re-booked for next June.
First time guest on Memorial Weekend 2006. This is a great family vacation resort. There are more activities than you could ever ask for, the service is amazing and the food was very good. I would highly suggest that any family with children plan a visit (and you will return). The resort is extremely well run and the owners are visible everywhere you turn. The staff are happy to work at the resort and try to fufill your every need. My wife and I brought our 6 year old son, and he cried when we had to check out. I never got this reaction from him at Disneyworld, Atlantis or on the Norweigen Dawn Cruise Ship. We already rebooked the trip for next year. The Woodloch Pines website can fill you in on the layout and activities. Our favorite part was the indoor/outdoor pool, family carnival and olympics, lake and boating activities and nightly shows. The shows were very entertaining for the POCONOS. This place is like a throw back to the good old days when everything was geared to innocent family fun and not commercialized. The food is all you can eat, breakfast, lunch and dinner and the quality is like homemade. Have a great unforgettable time.
We just returned from our 4 day vacation at Woodloch Pines. This is now our second visit to Woodloch, last year at this same time being our first visit. We thought that maybe last year was so great because it was our first time experiencing everything at Woodloch, and were a bit afraid that we might not enjoy it as much this year. We were WRONG. We just adore this place!! This is what a vacation is all about - and believe me when I tell you... the staff at Woodloch KNOWS how to treat each and every guest.... young, old and anywhere in between. Each and every staff member gives nothing less than 110% and they just can't do enough for you. We never saw as much as a frown on anybody's face at Woodloch Pines, this includes guests as well as staff members. This is a family run business (voted #1 place to work in all of PA. last year and within the top 10 places to work for the past 10 years) and they have taught each and every staff member the key to their success .... GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE. I probably sound like I work for Woodloch, the way that I'm carrying on about the great service there, but I don't. I spend 361 days a year paying extremely high prices for extremely lousy service and it's nice to go somewhere and be treated as though they really and truly appreciate you.
Heaven hidden the Poconos
We have had the pleasure of going to Woodloch for 18 years and NO, We do not get tired of it . Would you get tired of eating great food, Playing games with a great staff and having FUN. I don't. If you want to do anything. You can do it there. Swimming, GoKarts Waterskiing ,Games ,Contests, Childrens games and yes granny even Bingo ( B-11) Take your kids, Take your parents, Take your neighbors, I did. No Complaints yet. One visit and you will be hooked. Enjoy. See you at Woodloch.
We just returned from a 3 night stay and had a wonderful time. Of course, we went the week before winter break so it was not overly crowded. The kids (3 and 4 years old) had a ball riding the snow tubes, riding the kiddie jeeps, go-carts(with an adult) and especially LOVED the newest attraction called the "Woodloch Forest." Essentially it is a whole indoor climbing facility with slides for the kids. The indoor pool was beautiful and everything is very, very clean. The food was very good and the kids loved having the same table at every meal. They even try to seperate the seating so that those of us with young, noisy little ones are in one area, the seniors get a little peace in another area, families with older children etc... It is especially nice to not have to waste vacation time trying to figure out where to eat. The staff is very helpful and always very nice. Every morning at breakfast there is an activity sheet that allows you to plan your day. The kids were never bored. At night all are welcome in the night club. Wednesday is their big show. It was like a Broadway show--my kids were fascinated. I imagine that it is beautiful there in the summer. I know a lot of people from my area that go year after year.
I am almost reluctant to leave a review for Woodloch because it is such a fantastic secret in NE Pennsylvania that I would like to keep it that way!! When we booked our reservation last year, Trip Advisor did not have any reviews at all.
We just returned from our stay at this well kept secret. Only 2 1/2 hrs from our house it was a family bonding time. We just went for 2 nights but intend to go back again with more family members. It is definately less stressful than Disney World but just as family friendly with constant activities and this is off peak season in Nov. I can't imagine what it is like in the summer. I hope to find out another time. My girls are 2 and 5. But older kids would even have more to do. Everything was so clean and well laid out. I liked how you could walk to everything. Indoor pool was really nice. We also enjoyed the paddle boats and peacefulness and beauty of the lake. We didn't have spend time planning where we would go for dinner or when since it was like a cruise you ate at the same table and time each night. I believe they also have restaurants that are not included in the packages. The night time show in the huge nightclub was suitable for all ages. Being that we went off season and mid week there were alot of seniors.
Just back from our first trip to Woodloch Pines and had a fantastic time. It's a self-contained resort for families of all ages, with accommodations in various sizes and price ranges. We had a lovely cabin overlooking the lake and three deer outside our deck every night at dusk. You are served 3 full meals a day -- not gourmet but good, wholesome, delicious, healthy food. There's no creme brulee, more like fresh pumpkin pie. There is an abundance of activities to keep everyone busy -- from bingo and go karts by day to a free musical or comedy show performed by the staff at night. Everything is extremely clean and you want for nothing. The exercise room and pool area are excellent. They even have Wi-Fi. What I really liked about Woodloch Pines was that it was so "family" oriented and geared towards "togetherness". The family could be grandparents with their children and grandchildren or it could be a young couple with or without children. It's definitely a very different, very wholesome, very relaxing and very satisfying vacation.
