Taking a family trip overseas is fun and exciting but, if you want to avoid the high costs and hassle of going abroad, the best thing you can do is to go on a staycation with your loved ones. By doing this, you can spend quality time with each other while knowing more about your community and enjoying the wonders that it has to offer.

Don’t worry since there are lots of fantastic places where you can spend your staycation. If you live in the Indiana or Chicago area for example, one of your best options is Oakwood Resort. As one of the best resort hotels in the state, we can provide you with a wide range of amenities and services that will help you have a fun, exciting, and unforgettable time with your family. Here are some of the things that you’ll enjoy when you spend your family vacation with us:


On-site restaurant and bar

Having access to great food and great drinks is one of the most important parts of a vacation. Fortunately, you can easily enjoy both when you stay with Oakwood Resort, which provides a casually elegant dining experience through The Pier & Back Porch Restaurant & Bar. Here, you’ll get to enjoy a range of mouthwatering salads, soups, entrees, and desserts that are made by talented and experienced chefs. You can also enjoy delicious martinis, vodkas, and other beverages. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, so you’ll have access to tasty meals throughout the day.


An on-site spa

If you have teenage daughters, you can treat them to a facial, a “mani-pedi”, or even a whole-body treatment at our very own J-Three Salon and Spa. Even teenage boys will appreciate the spa since they can enjoy a sports pedicure (perfect for teens who spend hours playing football, basketball, soccer, and other intensive sports) or they can simply get a new stylish haircut. Of course, you and your spouse can join in on the fun by getting a couple’s massage and enjoying a relaxing experience with each other.


A range of outdoor activities for kids

There are a lot of outdoor activities to do at Oakwood Resort, so your children won’t run out of outlets for their energy. They can run on the paved paths, play basketball on one of our basketball courts, or ride their bikes on the one-mile cycling track. You can also take them on a light hike on the nearby off-road areas or spend a day exploring the back country roads with them. Of course, if you and your kids just want to chill out, you can take a dip at our on-site swimming pier or enjoy an alfresco lunch at our picnic area.


A boat tour for the entire family

If you want to enjoy a relaxing day out with your family, you can take advantage of Oakwood Resort’s Lake Wawasee Tours. We have our own boat, aptly named the Oakwood Tour Boat, which was owned by the US Parks Department, but is now used to take our guests on a wonderful tour around Lake Wawasee. The tour begins in the early evening and lasts for more than 30 minutes, giving you and your family plenty of time to enjoy the fresh air, and take lots of great pictures.
