Looking for a hotel with a GREAT pool!

Hello -

We are thinking about getting out of town (Metro DC) for the fourth of July weekend. We are looking for a clean, quiet, nice getaway. We WANT a NICE OUTDOOR pool. We are really looking to sit in the sun, read books, listen to music and NOT THINK. Activities and entertainment is an added bonus - but NOT needed. If the resort offered rooms/suites with kitchens/kitchenettes this would be a BONUS as we keep kosher but when away we will eat vegetarian if needed.

To summarize....

2 adults

NICE POOL AREA

CLEAN resort

Entertainment - activities bonus - not required

AND... if there is some local stuff - to check out - that is wonderful (but not necessary)

Thoughts?

Advice?

We don't really care about where we go in terms of location as long as it is within 4 hours of DC.

Thanks!

Well, we have two water park resorts here.

Great Wolf Lodge

http://www.greatwolf.com/poconos/waterpark

and

Split Rock

http://www.splitrockresort.com/waterpark.asp

I have not visited Split Rock, and I know Great Wolf does have an outdoor pool, but that is really secondary to the indoor water park.

Lots of kids and families at both.

We also have a water park, Camelbeach, that is all outdoors. Excellent pools there. But it's really an active place, lots of tube rides, etc., and not quite the kind of atmosphere I think you're looking for. There are apartments/villas at Camelbeach (it's actually a ski resort, Camelback, during the winter) but I do not think they are more than time-share/privately owned. There is a hotel next to Camelbeach, Chateau, I think it's called, but I don't think it has a pool.

There is also the Delaware River and Lehigh River, both great rafting/tubing/kayaking destinations.

Not sure any of this is what you're looking for. Maybe somebody else can chime in with other suggestions.

Pools during the summer here are kind of an afterthought, since we have such great river fun!
