3 Ultra-Romantic Sunset Locations in the Pocono Mountains

Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts, the “Honeymoon Capital of the World,” remains the Northeast’s premier getaway destination amongst couples young and old. These three ultra-romantic, all-inclusive resorts continue to wow sweethearts from New York City, Philadelphia, Scranton, and well beyond, thanks in large part to our eclectic mix of fine dining, tantalizing champagne tower suites, and countless on-site amenities. Each evening, as the sun subtly begins to dip below the densely-forested Pocono Mountains, many couples stroll through the landscape with intertwined hands and hearts filled to the brim with tenderness and warmth. Thus, we’ve decided to share three of our favorite sunset locations, all of which are a short drive from a Cove Haven hotel.

1. Lake Wallenpaupack

Naturally, Lake Wallenpaupack’s gleaming, 5,700-acre surface captures the center of our Solar System unlike any other natural attraction in the region. As the sun patiently cascades behind the emerald forestry, the dimly-lit sky transforms into a jaw-dropping meld of colors, including shades of Tuscan yellow, rose pink, iris, and marigold. If possible, we highly recommend welcoming the sunset from the water via kayak, pontoon, rowboat, or pedalboat. You can also cycle along Lakeshore Drive (westerly) or picnic on sandy Palmyra Township Public Beach. Lakeville’s Cove Haven Resort offers free watercraft and bicycle rentals for all guests.

2. Mount Tammany

Adventurous couples who can tackle a 1,100-foot-plus climb to towering Mount Tammany will be met with heart-stopping views of the sprawling Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. This climb is not for the faint of heart, so please pack plenty of fluids and wear proper hiking gear. There’s quite literally nothing as alarmingly beautiful as a clear sunset whilst perched atop Mount Tammany. Vivid hues of canary yellow, sandstone, and coral blanket the once-baby-blue sky. Remember to get a head start on the sunset as the return journey requires a 1,100-foot descent across 1.2 miles. Mount Tammany (as pictured above) is only 11 miles southwest of Pocono Palace Resort.

3. Boulder Field

Boulder Field, in and of itself, is one of the most enthralling natural marvels in the United States. However, when combined with a lazy sunset, the experience obtains a whole new level of tranquility and serenity. For those who don’t already know, Boulder Field is a 16-acre paddock that’s entirely enveloped in giant stones (mostly sandstone and siltstones). Astonishingly, some boulders are 30 feet wide. Sunsets typically resemble a well-built fire with deep shades of gold, orange, red, and blue. Boulder Field is approximately 33 miles west of Paradise Stream Resort.

Plan a Couples-Only Escape into the Pocono Mountains

Upon return to Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts, be sure to catch a live show from a world-class magician, musician, or comedian before retiring to your lavish suite. Most suites are fully equipped with a heart-shaped whirlpool bath, dry sauna, log-burning fireplace, mirrored headboard, and modern furnishings.
