This award-winning resort is sheltered among 400 acres of beautiful rolling countryside, and it overlooks the scenic shores of a private spring-fed lake. Waldenwoods features fun for all four seasons, blending the simple life of the past with the convenience of modern amenities.
Spacious and grassy campsites and lush trees sit at the edge of Lake Walden, a tranquil place to enjoy canoeing, kayaking or fishing. Plenty of indoor fun includes scheduled activities along with game tables for leisurely sets of ping pong and shuffleboard. Family friendly means the kids can head for the playground while the bigger kids stroll over to the golf course.
Waldenwoods is also a fairy-tale venue for conferences and weddings with its charming Cromaine Lodge on the lake. Several locations serve as ceremony settings, indoor or out.
