Any time you can take a vacation – or even just a weekend getaway – is sure to be a good time full of memorable experiences. While any girls’ weekend near Goshen or Ft. Wayne is bound to be a good one, being able to collect your gal pals and leave the world behind calls for a special kind of trip.

And it all begins with the hotel you choose as your “home base” for the weekend.

Oakwood Resort in Syracuse, Indiana is the idyllic location for a girls’ weekend getaway for several reasons. You’ll want to make sure any location you choose for your gal time offers specific amenities, activities, and services, so listen up and find out what those specifics are – and why Oakwood Resort is the perfect place for your next girl getaway!

Hotel Must-Haves for a Girls’ Weekend Away:

  1. An On-site Salon

You and your girlfriends are tired of running errands and going places all the time, so you’ll want a place where you all can get pampered – without even having to leave the hotel property. Oakwood Resort has an incredible salon, the 702 Salon and Spa, right on-site. Creating a soothing retreat from the stresses of life, staff members of the 702 strive to create a true sanctuary of the senses for guests, providing services that include everything from massages and manicures to hairstyle services, facials, microblading, acupressure, and much more. What more can a group of girls need? Find out more about the 702 Salon and Spa here.


  1. Water

Whether it’s a beach, a lake, a pool, or a hot tub, no girls’ weekend is complete without water! Water is proven to reduce stress, enhance calm, and help balance and focus, so it’s a good thing that Oakwood Resort has just the thing for your getaway. It’s located right on a private beach on Lake Wawasee, so you and your girls can spend time near the all-important water, even in the colder months of winter. Enjoy boat tours of the beautiful lake, take walks on the beach and in the summer, get plenty of R&R lakeside as you bask in the warm sun and follow up with a cool dip in the lake.


  1. Space for Everyone

It’s not always ideal to split your group up for the weekend just because it’s time for sleep. At too many hotels near Goshen or Ft. Wayne, the only options for groups are to split everyone up into different rooms or reserve a very pricey top-tier suite. Oakwood Resort, however, has another solution – lakeside homes! These little homes are available with a variety of different set-ups and can sleep several people in them. What a fabulous way to keep all your favorite girls together during your weekend when you all can spend quality time together in a cute little house near the beach, for a fraction of the cost of big-city hotel suites!


  1. An Onsite Restaurant & Bar

No celebratory weekend is ever complete without fantastic food and drinks on order, which is exactly why Oakwood proudly offers its own onsite restaurant: The Pier & Back Porch. Serving up out-of-this-world food and spirits since 2013, the lakeside restaurant offers daily drink specials, unique dishes, savory meals, and fun appetizers and desserts. For those who are planning a little bit larger event, such as a bridal shower for example, the restaurant also caters and accommodates large groups with perfect menu selection options. Why leave the hotel and drive around trying to find a place to eat and drink during your girls’ weekend? The Pier & Back Porch has everything right on-site.


  1. Activities Galore

Although gal pals will most assuredly have lots in common with each other, the truth remains that no two people are exactly alike – everyone enjoys different things to do in Indiana. You’ll want to make sure that your girls’ weekend in Syracuse is perfect, and that means making sure everyone always has something to do, no matter what their preferences are. Oakwood Resort offers the perfect location for any gathering. Guests can enjoy everything from the game room to the hiking and walking trails to the nearby shopping, and more. Ball courts, lake tours, lakefront dining, and a fitness room are also available. No matter what your girlfriends enjoy, they’ll find it when you book your girls’ getaway at Oakwood Resort!
