6 Romantic Winter Proposal Ideas

And, believe it or not, the most popular proposal season here at Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts is the wintertime, particularly around the holidays. For those of you who don’t already know, we have a full staff of proposal experts, led by the ultra-talented and creative Lauren Brooks. Our team has come up with six unique winter proposal ideas to give you a “taste” of what our tantalizing lakeside haven can offer you and your future spouse.

Pop the Question: 6 Fun Winter Proposal Ideas

To ensure that your special moment is nothing short of flawless, we offer a wide variety of proposal and engagement packages, which start at just $99. Brooks and her team have helped plan hundreds of engagements, utilizing countless creative proposal ideas. All six of these winter proposal ideas are bound to lead to a resounding “yes” from your future better half.

1. The Ice Skating Rink “Fall”

During winter’s peak, some of the most common winter proposal ideas involve a festive, dimly-lit skating rink. Luckily for you, Cove Haven Resort has a year-round indoor ice rink. You could stumble to ice (whoops!), reach into your pocket for the dazzling ring, and prop yourself onto one knee to ask the most important question of your lifetime.

2. The Classic Candlelit Dinner

There’s never an “offseason” for the classic candlelit dinner proposal accompanied by a bottle of fine champagne and succulent steak amid an ultra-romantic ambiance. Our staff can set up an intimate, dimly-lit space for your big moment.

3. Christmas Morning Stocking

Hiding the velvet ring box at the bottom of their stocking is among our favorite Christmas proposal ideas as the surprised look is priceless. While Christmastime engagements are quite common, there’s something truly magical about starting December 25 with a bang.

4. Make a Snowman

When coming up with a list of potential winter proposal ideas, don’t be afraid to think outside of the box. It’s doesn’t get much sweeter than meticulously assembling a smiling snowman with your loved one, especially after you subtly place a diamond ring on the snowman’s left hand.

5. A Special Surprise in the Whirlpool

As you may already know, Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts is widely recognized for our Champagne Tower Whirlpools. These seductive Jacuzzis are the perfect place to secretively hide a ring (we recommend placing it inside a transparent capsule amidst the foamy bubbles). Let your sweetheart find the mysterious capsule and watch them gradually deduce what’s happening.

6. Write Your Proposal in the Snow

Yes, this is one of the more cliched marriage proposal ideas out there, but it’s still a fun, simple way to proclaim your endearing love and devotion. Brooks and our team can set up a momentary distraction to ensure that you have enough time to stage the scene.

Romantic Horseback Riding in the Poconos

Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts has been one of the premier romantic getaways in North America since 1958, thanks to our tantalizing all-inclusive packages, fine dining, live entertainment, Champagne Tower Whirlpools, and, of course, the exclusive Key Around Club. But we urge future guests to explore the Pocono Mountains in a variety of ways, including couples horseback riding. For those of you who’ve never climbed aboard a majestic, well-trained horse in this gorgeous region, horseback riding in the Poconos is an experience unlike any other.

Horseback Riding in the Poconos near Cove Haven

To ensure that your upcoming escape to Lake Wallenpaupack is nothing short of flawless, we’ve compiled three of our favorite nearby stables. If you were to search for “riding stables near me” this winter, you’d likely stumble upon each of these local businesses. Although horseback riding in the Poconos is undeniably exciting, romantic, and scenic, not a lot of couples feel comfortable atop a horse. Luckily for you and your sweetheart, all three of these stables have a fleet of well-trained horses and a team of talented equestrians. And don’t forget to ask about exclusive discounts at each location—they treat our guests with extra care!

Triple W Riding Stable

Location: 291 Beechnut Drive, Honesdale, PA
Price range: call for pricing (570-226-2620)
Tour length: 1-2 hours
Closest resort: Cove Haven Resort, 12 miles

Why choose Triple W? The folks up north at Triple W Riding Stable have been guiding couples through the dense forestry and sprawling countryside for decades. The highlight of Triple W’s two-hour scenic trail ride is the mountaintop overlook. Your group will leisurely gallop through wooded forests and open fields en route to one of the highest elevations in the Pocono Mountains—the valley views are astonishing!

Mountain Creek Riding Stables

Location: 6190 Paradise Valley Road, Cresco, PA
Price range: $20- $75
Tour length: 45-60 minutes
Closest resort: Paradise Stream Resort, 0.1 mile

Why choose Mountain Creek? The easy answer is that Mountain Creek Riding Stables is located just 450 feet from Paradise Steam Resort’s driveway. Their five-star reputation and unmatched customer reviews tell the story, but we also love the fact that they offer one-hour private tours for just $75 per person. Lovebirds can enjoy each other’s company atop a beautiful, attentive horse without a crowd of strangers removing the romantic ambiance. Each trip meanders along serene streams (including our very own Paradise Creek), towering forestry, and blossoming flora.

Happy Trails Stables

Location: 648 Honesdale Road, Waymart, PA
Price range: call for pricing (570-488-6996)
Closest resort: Cove Haven Resort, 18 miles

Why choose Happy Trails? If you and your spouse are searching for especially secluded horseback riding in the Poconos, we recommend venturing north to Happy Trails Stables. Their trail rides amble along the vibrant countryside and into undisturbed woodlands. Many vantage points in the open fields provide panoramic views of the faraway mountains topped with wind turbines. Curious wildlife often trots through these fields, forests, and backcountry ponds.

An Unforgettable Couples Getaway in PA

We highly recommend that you combine an hour or two of horseback riding in the Poconos with several of our complimentary on-site activities, such as bicycling, racquetball, and snowmobiling. And don’t forget to read about our fine dining, newly-renovated suites, and nearby golf courses before your arrival.

Top 5 Poconos Waterfalls

And luckily for you and your sweetheart, Pocono Palace Resort and Paradise Stream Resort are just a short drive from dozens of awe-inspiring, picturesque Poconos waterfalls. While you likely already know all about Bushkill Falls, “the Niagara of Pennsylvania,” there are many more hidden gems in the Pocono Mountains amidst dense forestry, thriving wildlife, and natural serenity.

The 5 Prettiest Poconos Waterfalls

Yes, Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts provides honeymooners, spouses, and lovebirds with seemingly neverending (and all-inclusive) on-site amenities, fine dining, and nightly live entertainment. But we cannot blame you if a midday escape to one of the prettiest Poconos waterfalls doesn’t sound alluring, invigorating, and mildly seductive. These five Pocono Mountain adventures should be combined with some light hiking, a bit of exploration, and a tasty afternoon picnic.

1. Bushkill Falls

It should come as no surprise that we’re kicking off this list of Poconos waterfalls with the always enchanting Bushkill Falls. While many of the best waterfalls in PA are moderately “off the beaten path,” Bushkill is one of the top attractions in the state. Despite the crowds, there’s nothing more magical than strolling alongside this tranquil collection of eight falls. The gorge itself is a natural, moss-covered marvel, while the two-mile Red Trail is among the best hikes in the Poconos.

2. Dingmans Falls

Dingmans Creek is home to a handful of the most-frequented Poconos waterfalls, most notably Dingmans Falls. Particularly adventurous couples often walk the creek to observe each waterfall from up-close. After a dramatic drop, the latter half of Dingmans Falls looks like a slippery natural waterslide. During summer’s golden peak, thrillseekers climb the falls and swim inside the teal pool.

3. Raymondskill Falls

While the trek to these classic Poconos waterfalls is just 0.3 miles, we recommend hopping on the lengthier loop. The 2.3-mile Raymondskill Falls Loop provides a quintessential Poconos hiking experience: serene waterfalls, dramatic valley overlooks, and lush forestry. Whether you plan to visit during spring’s thaw, summer’s haze, or autumn’s peak, Raymondskill Creek is bound to provide you and your flame with long-lasting memories.

4. Silverthread Falls

Just downstream from Dingmans Falls lies yet another one of our favorite Poconos waterfalls: Silverthread Falls. This skinny, often overlooked beauty features an 80-foot drop, making it one of the tallest Delaware Water Gap waterfalls. Aptly-named Silverthread is reminiscent of those thin yet enthralling waterfalls often captured by natural photographers who trek into Hawaii’s dense, uninhabited wilderness.

5. Shohola Falls

Shohola Falls is perhaps the best-kept secret on the Poconos waterfalls map. If you and your fellow adventurer relish a good thrill, we recommend carefully walking on one of Shohola Falls’ many layers. As long as the current isn’t gushing, you can walk right into the heart of Shohola Falls—as long as you’re not afraid to get a little wet, of course.

Adventurous Romantic Getaways in PA

After trying one (or several) of these classic Pocono adventures, retreat to Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts for an afternoon activity, romantic steak dinner, live music, and, of course, a soak in your Champagne Tower Whirlpool. For those that are closing in on their wedding day, we also have a wide range of all-inclusive honeymoon packages. Please visit our specials page for more details. To book a dreamlike escape to one of our liberating, tantalizing resorts, please give us a call today at 800-432-9932.
