Hawley Travel Guide
One of our favorite bedtime flip-throughs is the Small Luxury Hotels of the World directory. We have been known to drift off to the Land of Nod with visions of the collection's 400-plus hotels, from nearly 70 countries, in our head. So we note with interest that the latest U.S. property to join the portfolio is The Lodge at Woodloch.
The 58-room property is located in what used to be commonly referred to as the Poconos but has more recently been recast as Pennsylvania's lake region. So, no borscht belt offerings at this stop. The Lodge is isolated, on 75 woodland acres. Judging from the photos on its website, the décor is understated sumptuous. Reviews on TripAdvisor are highly favorable, with one kvetch about an inferior treatment and another about a less-than-helpful reservationist. MORE
