As we are about to embark on our babymoon and final vacation before Balbo arrives, I wanted to suggest three other nearby resorts within driving distance from New York City, a perfect for a weekend getaway or Babymoon

  1. The Lodge at Woodloch I A Poconos Resort and Spa

I have been to Woodloch twice and absolutely love it!

It is great for: the active couple as there are fitness classes throughout the day, a ton of activities and an amazing spa.

Meals: All meals are included from their fresh, farm to table menu.

Season: Year Round / This resort is perfect if you want to stay indoors in winter because the activities are all in one place.

2. Chrystal Springs Resort

I went to Chrystal Springs Resort for the New Jersey Wine and Food festival – oh how things have changed.  There are two hotels as part of the resort.  I recommend the Grand Cascades Lodge, even though the Minerals hotel has alot of the activities. There is a shuttle between the two.

It is great for: Golf for the dads to be, pool and spa for the moms to be.

Meals:  Meals are a la carte, allowing for more flexibility.

Season: Spring / Summer

3. Mohonk Mountain House

Loved this outdoorsy lodge.  The hotel has not been updated in years but that’s ok because you’re spending most of your time outside.

It is great for:  the active couple – There is hiking, canoeing, paddle boats, biking, horse back riding and more!  It is also a great place for families because of the kid camp activities.

Meals: We had an all included meal plan at the buffet which gave us many options and cuisines to choose from.

Season: I would recommend this destination between May and October, in warmer temperatures.

Funny enough, I did not visit any of the above destinations with my husband – but I know they would all make great options for a romantic weekend together before your little one arrives. If you have any questions regarding the above, please reach out!
