3 Things You Should Look For in the Best Poconos Resorts for Families

Spacious Accommodations

This is a given – you can’t expect to pack up the minivan with kids and luggage, and then unpack into a small, single bed space. You need room to stretch out, relax, and of course, you need more than one bed. Silver Birches is perfect for Poconos family vacations, and we offer several different great choices for lodging. Take the three houses we have on Springer Lane, for example. The Retreat, The Landing and the Big House all have a minimum of three bedrooms and two bathrooms, and the Big House has four rooms, with the capability to sleep up to 10 people! Amenities include fully-furnished kitchens (making family meals a breeze), three TV’s, Wi-Fi, an outdoor and gas grill, washer and dryer, and much more! Everything you need to take care of the family is provided, allowing you to relax, worry-free.

If a house is too much space, consider one of our smaller accommodations, like our Cottages, or the Bunkhouse units. These units feature two bedrooms, queen-size beds, Wi-Fi, and more. The Bunkhouses have private porches that overlook Lake Wallenpaupack, and the Cottages come with fully equipped kitchens and gas fireplaces.

Activities for Everyone

Fun is a main ingredient of successful Poconos family vacations, and there’s no shortage of it at Silver Birches. Thanks to our location on Lake Wallenpaupack, you can spend all day on the water without getting bored! Get the most out of the lake with our kayak and standup paddleboard (SUP) rentals, or just jump in for a refreshing swim. Planning on taking the kids out for a cruise? Bring your boat and park it in one of boat slips!

If you’re a fitness enthusiast, you can stay on track with your fitness plan when you head to Lake Region Fitness – guests get free access to this excellent workout facility!

Not everyone wants to break a sweat though, and we understand that. You are on vacation, after all! Head back to your house and take advantage of the flat-screen TVs and watch a movie or hook up your video game system, all from the comfort of the couch. Or, just grab a book and relax on the porch. 

Stunning Scenery

Any resort worth its weight in 5-star TripAdvisor reviews features a beautiful location, and Silver Birches delivers.
