There are so many ways I could praise this place, but first on the list is that it's unpretentious, healthy, and well prioritized. Food and Exercise are at the top of those priorities. I call it my reset location: This year was my second visit and I brought my husband. The food is delicious, extremely low-fat and low-sodium (you have to beg for salt, but it's there) and the portion sizes are Weight Watcher sized. Perhaps the portions are a shock for the complainer, however one can order twice as much if they wish. I can honestly say, I was almost never hungry! We took many classes from Boot Camp to Meditation, and nearly every one of them was truly excellent. We hiked with Richie, and had him do a Functional Movement evaluation which was so helpful. The rooms are old, rustic and granted a little musty,AND the jacuzzi was one of the best I've ever tried. The massage could have been deeper tissue, but it still felt amazing. The relaxed atmosphere reflects the owner, Joan Wolff, who is delightful, funny, candid and as unpretentious as the lodge her mother bought in 1979. Most of all, the "regulars" who come out to East Stroudsburg three and four times a summer were hysterically funny. I enjoyed every minute of this trip and wouldn't change a thing.
PS We are gluten-free and they had plenty to accommodate me - even coated the chicken in gf bread crumbs for us! I don't know what the post above was talking about!!
