Now, more than ever, there's a need to regain positivity in our lives, reconnect with loved ones, and heal -- emotionally, mentally, spiritually. Take a little time this fall to slow down, reflect, and connect to that which is really of importance to you.
This Fall, join Pineapple7 for a special 3 day/2 night Wellness Escape. Think of it as Fall Camp for Adults! We'll escape to an idyllic setting where you can discover a new aspect of yourself.

The Lodge is conveniently located (approximately 4 hours driving from DC), but will feel worlds away. With new hygiene and sanitation protocols continuing to roll out, we are only working with properties and suppliers that have clear covid health and safety policies in place. The safety of our clients, our travel partners, and their staff is very important to use.
Some of the protocols that will impact our stay:
Guests are required to wear masks in public areas for the duration of their stay.
Guests will check-in at the Welcome Center and each member of the party will have their temperature taken.
Housekeeping has been paused. New linens can be provided to you upon request during your stay and turn-down mints will be provided on the door handle each evening.
All classes & activities require advance sign-up for social distancing and planning purposes.
Masks are not required when using the water features or for outdoor fitness classes & activities as long as social distancing is maintained.
All of the artfully-crafted gourmet meals can be ordered in advance, at no extra charge, and packaged as take-out to enjoy on your guest room veranda, on the FireCircle Patio, or in our many outdoor picnic areas
Spa treatments are available to guests on an appointment-only basis. Treatment providers are required to wear masks and/or face shields & guests are required to wear masks. Full details on The Lodge at Woodloch's New Age of Precaution
