Top 3 Pennsylvania Distilleries Near Cove Haven

The craft distilling scene in the Keystone State hasn’t been this marketable since pre-Prohibition. And, luckily for couples lodging with Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts, there are a handful of highly-praised Pennsylvania distilleries in the region. It’s quite common for couples to search for a “craft distillery near me” during their midday adventures via the Key Around Club. Whether you appreciate an innovative cocktail, stiff pour, or bottle to-go, there’s bound to be a barrel room near Paradise Stream Resort and Pocono Palace Resort with your name on it.

The 3 Best Pennsylvania Distilleries

Before diving into this shortlist of must-visit Pennsylvania distilleries, it’s worth noting that Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts’ all-inclusive packages include two meals daily, countless on-site activities, nightly entertainment, and lodging. The packages, however, don’t cover alcohol. Thus, we’ve compiled this list of potential midday pit stops in-between a snowmobiling adventure, horseback riding, or 18 holes of golf. Let’s start with the region’s premier watering hole: Silverback Distillery.

Silverback Distillery – East Stroudsburg

Silverback’s East Stroudsburg facility operates inside an old airplane hangar on the north edge of town near Marshalls Creek. The company was named after the strong, fierce silverback gorilla. Thus, many of their spirits are also named after a variety of apes. Silverback has won awards for their 100 percent sweet corn vodka, botanical gin, rye whiskey, aged bourbon, and white oak barrel moonshine. Savor a cocktail on the outdoor patio next to a jet or inside the sleek yet unpretentious tavern.

Mountain View Vineyard – Stroudsburg

Mountain View is equal parts vineyard, brewery, eatery, and distillery—a true all-in-one package that pleases every patron. Unlike most Pennsylvania breweries, Mountain View features dramatic, awe-inspiring vistas of the towering Poconos. Spirit samplers cost just $7, which includes three-ounce pours of all-natural vodka, grape-based brandy, and old-fashioned moonshine. Mountain View is certainly worth a visit during the summer and autumn seasons, primarily because of the surrounding natural beauty. You’ll likely stumble upon their scenic vineyard while searching for a “vodka distillery near me.”

Eight Oaks Farm Distillery – New Tripoli 

Eight Oaks Farm narrowly thwarted Lehighton’s Insurrection Distillery, one of the newest Pennsylvania distilleries. New Tripoli is a bit of a trek, so we recommend visiting their polished distillery on the return journey to Philadelphia, Allentown, or Harrisburg. The $20 tours provide an inside look into the art of distilled spirits (from seed to glass) followed by a sampling complete with a crafted cocktail made by a well-trained mixologist.

The Premier Couples Resort in Pennsylvania

For decades, couples of all ages have been venturing into the heart of the Pocono Mountains for a playful, uninhabited getaway to Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts (home to the world-famous Champagne Tower Whirlpool). As mentioned above, nearly every aspect of the stay is included in an all-inclusive package, including curated activities by our dedicated team of Chief eXcitement Officers (CXOs). Before booking, make sure to browse through our Jacuzzi suites, year-round activities, wedding packages, and vow renewal opportunities. Call now to book by dialing 1-800-432-9932.


Poconos Winter Activities: 10 Ways to Stay Warm This Winter

Winter welcomes crisp air, near-freezing temperatures, and, of course, millions upon millions of snowflakes. But don’t let the chilly, frosty nature of this season change your mental outlook. Thousands of couples now embrace winter’s peak by practicing hygge, a growing Danish obsession. To truly embrace these cool months, one must find creative ways to enjoy the outdoors while also reinvigorating indoors afterward. Guests here at Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts have easy access to countless classic Poconos winter activities, including snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing, through our Key Around Club. But the best way to cozy up with your sweetheart is by trying one of these 10 ways to stay warm.

10 Ways to Stay Warm This Winter

Yes, warming up is typically as easy as disrobing and standing next to a heater or hopping underneath a hot shower. But there are several imaginative ways to get the blood flowing this winter. After an afternoon filled with quintessential Poconos winter activities, pull up this handy list on your phone and give one (or two) a try!

  1. Soak together inside a world-famous Champagne Tower Whirlpool (or heart-shaped hot tub). Our signature whirlpools are the perfect place to cap off a tantalizing outdoor adventure.
  2. Snuggle close to a log-burning fireplace. Pour two mugs of hot cocoa while you’re at it.
  3. Hop inside a tanning bed. Work on that midwinter tan and warm up at the same time!
  4. Indulge in a scorching plate of sliced roast sirloin, prime rib, or stuffed chicken breast. Your stomach will thank you.
  5. Enjoy a couples wellness massage inside our on-site Poconos spa. This peaceful, modern spa offers everything from heated bamboo massages to focused tension relief.
  6. Perhaps an adult beverage or two can warm you up? Purchase a mixed drink or craft cocktail, and let the alcohol slowly dilate your blood vessels.
  7. Dim the lights, kindle the fire, turn on the flatscreen, and slip under the covers—nothing warms the body quite like an old-fashioned midwinter cuddle.
  8. Unwind inside your private dry sauna. Many of our suites include a whirlpool, sauna, fireplace, and heated swimming pool.
  9. Play a game of racquetball, tennis, or basketball—that will get the blood flowing.
  10. Cove Haven Resort’s movie theater is an idyllic spot to snuggle close with a box of popcorn.

We’ve also evolved into one of the most enticing intimate wedding venues on the East Coast as our scenic, playful respite is for adults only. As we head into 2020, more and more couples are looking for an intimate alternative to a sizable, expensive wedding in the city, which is where we come into the frame.

The Changing Seasons

You might think that the heart of summer is our most popular season for elopements (and weddings), but most couples choose autumn or winter’s peak. There’s just something magical about reciting heartfelt vows underneath colorful, falling leaves or snow-capped trees. For all intents and purposes, no ceremony locale is off limits here at Cove Haven. Some couples prefer to stand beside vast Lake Wallenpaupack while others enjoy the comfort and luxury of our many indoor meeting spaces. To inquire about potential ceremony locations and to schedule a visit, please fill out this form. Intimate weddings, because of their small size, are fully customizable, which is just one of the many reasons that we offer free elopement packages in PA.

Start the Honeymoon

There are countless reasons to elope rather than marry amid hundreds of guests: it’s intimate, authentic, less expensive, and certainly less dramatic. It’s all about the couple. Elopements value the experience over everything else. And elopements, whether meticulously planned or spontaneous, allow couples to instantly start their honeymoon.

The Best Breweries in PA: A Sudsy Poconos Adventure

While there isn’t an abundance of breweries in the Poconos, the few who have set up shop in hopes of serving frosty travelers a pint of microbeer have been met with wild success. You certainly won’t need a reason to leave Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts this winter. But we cannot blame all of you self-proclaimed beer aficionados out there if a frothy, roasty oatmeal stout at one of the top-rated breweries in PA doesn’t sound excessively enticing. 

A Self-Guided Beer Journey: The Top 3 Breweries in PA

If you’ve ever taken a peek at a state-wide brewery map, you already know that dozens of taprooms are scattered throughout the Pocono Mountains. And, luckily for you and your sweetheart, several of our favorite breweries in PA are just a short drive from Cove Haven Resort, Pocono Palace Resort, and Paradise Stream Resort. A brief journey to an ultra-popular Pocono brewery is the perfect mid-day activity for those aiming to take a short break from the snow this winter.

1. Hopping Eagle Brewing Co

Hopping Eagle Brewing assuredly isn’t the oldest Lake Wallenpauck brewery, but my oh my is this brand new establishment starting to turn heads. The brewing team at Hopping Eagle is already making a name for themselves, thanks to a wide variety of hazy IPAs (including Don’t Poke the Bear and Peregrine NEIPA). Their merch is flying off of the shelves thanks to that ingenious logo, depicting a bald eagle with a bright-green hop for a torso atop an oar. But don’t forget about those eight glorious taps inside of their clean, sleek taproom.

2. Downriver Brewing Company

Downriver Brewing Company is the “new kid” on the block as they just opened their doors on November 2, 2019. It’s only been a few weeks, but downtown Stroudsburg’s very first craft brewery since 1937 is already garnering exceptional reviews from critics, locals, and Untappd’s online community. This team is just getting their collective feet wet, but great things are in store for the folks at Downriver. With an early emphasis on Berliner Weisses, milkshake IPAs, and imperial stouts, we’re equally excited to see what they come up with next.

3. Wallenpaupack Brewing Co.

Wallenpaupack Brewing operates at a much higher frequency than most breweries in PA, including Hopping Eagle and Downriver. This 14,000-square-foot, full production brewery sits atop the remains of a defunct Arby’s along U.S. 6, just seven miles from Cove Haven Resort. One of the many perks of stepping into this polished, modern taproom is that they also offer bar grub, such as grass-fed burgers, house-smoked prime rib (in honor of Arby’s), and even taco “flights.” The Hawley Hefeweizen, Nut Brown Ale, and Lake Haze #8 are three beers to try this winter.

A Tantalizing Couples Retreat in PA

Ladies and gentlemen, we’re rapidly approaching the most romantic season of the year: the holiday season. And there’s nothing more romantic than building a snowman underneath falling snow, snuggling around a fireplace with hot cocoa in-hand, and, of course, a soak inside a  seven-foot-tall Champagne Tower Whirlpool. After a brief visit to one of these top-ranked breweries in PA, enjoy fine dining, live entertainment, and some long-overdue alone time your private suite. If you’re still curious about other local breweries “near me,” give our team a call today at 1-800-432-9932. Don’t hesitate to also ask about our all-inclusive honeymoon packages, Jacuzzi suites, and seasonal specials!


Adventure and Romance: Snowmobiling in the Poconos

Winter is often associated with heartwarming holidays, festive drinks, and, of course, heartfelt proposals amid falling snow. But don’t forget about the many outdoor activities that help facilitate romance, flirtation, and a healthy dose of adventure. Among the many perks to a mid-winter getaway to Pocono Palace Resort, including nightly entertainment, fine dining, and shuttle services, is the fact that you’ll have the rare opportunity to try snowmobiling in the Poconos for free!

Finding a Snowmobile Rental “near Me”

Reserving a snowmobile rental in the Poconos can be quite costly; the insurance alone costs a fortune. But here at Pocono Palace Resort, all guests can hop aboard a safe, well-maintained snowmobile en route to a nearby winter wonderland. Beginners are more than welcome to join the frosty fun as each excursion is led by a trained professional who will help every step of the way. While the “sled” tours are located near our East Stroudsburg location, guests at all three resorts can spend a couple of hours in the backcountry powder thanks to our handy Key Around Club shuttles.

A Pocono Palace Exclusive: Snowmobiling in the Poconos

For those of you who don’t already know, Pocono Palace Resort rests along the edge of the breathtaking Delaware Water Gap. This region is widely known for its towering hillsides, winding roads, and peaceful countrysides. In the heart of winter, the birches, dogwoods, and eastern hemlocks are covered in fresh snow. The valley itself—where you’ll have the opportunity to go snowmobiling in the Poconos—is typically gleaming white, especially when preceded by a picturesque hoarfrost.

 

For all of you couples out there that are searching for “snowmobiling near me,” look no further than the rolling hills alongside Pocono Palace Resort. One of our charismatic winter sports CXOs (Chief eXcitement Officers) lead groups of six to eight riders into the pristine wilderness for approximately 15 minutes at a time. No two rides are alike, as the CXOs fully understand that many guests prefer to join multiple excursions in a row (much like a roller coaster).

3 Romantic Getaways in PA: Cove Haven

Believe it or not, the month of December is among our most popular wedding seasons! So, don’t hesitate to browse through our wedding, elopement, and honeymoon packages on our website.

As you might imagine, many couples choose to spend their winter afternoons sipping on hot cocoa, soaking inside a Champagne Tower Whirlpool, and snuggling on a horse-drawn carriage ride. To learn more about the possibility of skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling in the Poconos with your sweetheart, please give our concierge a call today at 1-800-432-9932.


Powder and Passion: A Romantic Poconos Snowboarding Day-Trip

There’s never an offseason for adventure and romance here at Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts, the top-rated couples getaway in PA. There’s just something genuinely playful about carving down a pristine ski hill on a sturdy snowboard with your sweetheart amid subtly descending snowflakes. We always encourage our guests to try as many winter activities as possible to foster a playful, passionate, and uninhibited experience. And very few mid-day activities are more rejuvenating than Poconos snowboarding!

Poconos Snowboarding: 2 Beautiful Locales

It’s quite common that couples differ in their alpine gear preference—some fancy skis, while others favor a slick, artistic snowboard. Regardless of your instrument of choice, you’ll never forget the day that you blazed down smooth, fresh powder in the heart of Eastern PA. Any type of romantic Poconos snowboarding trip is incomplete without fireside snuggles, hot tub soaks, and nightly entertainment at Pocono Palace Resort!

Shawnee Mountain

Pocono Palace Resort lies just three miles down the road from Shawnee Mountain, home to prime Poconos snowboarding, skiing, and snow tubing. If you were to search for “snowboarding places near me,” Shawnee would likely stand out amongst the competition. Unlike several other snowboarding resorts in the region, Shawnee has two spectacular terrain parks that can align with any skill level. With daily rates starting at $38 per person, it’s well worth the three-mile drive from Pocono Palace Resort. And the sprawling Pocono Mountains views from the peak are equally spellbinding and exhilarating. If you take a glance at Shawnee Mountain’s trail map, you’ll quickly notice ample black diamonds for those aiming to tame a challenging beast—what’s more exciting than carving down a 700-foot verticle drop?

Montage Mountain

Most guests from the New York City area who are looking for some all-time Poconos snowboarding typically choose Montage Mountain because of its grand reputation. Beginners can also enroll in the snowboarding school, which is an added perk for those who’ve never sped down a snow hill. And a lot of guests are drawn to Montage Mountain’s many off-season festivals, such as Rhythm & Blues and the Fall Wine Festival. Montage Mountain’s 26 trails span over 140 acres of pristine wilderness, approximately 40 minutes from Cove Haven Resort. Montage is prettier than Shawnee but sees much more traffic on the trails. We recommend visiting this bustling ski resort between Monday and Wednesday to save some hard-earned dough and avoid the crowds.

Exciting Snow Resorts “near Me”

After spending three hours at one of the area’s best snowboarding resorts, retreat to Pocono Palace Resort for an evening filled with fine dining, live entertainment, and a late-night soak in your private Champagne Tower Whirlpool. Don’t forget to browse through our all-inclusive honeymoon packages, Jacuzzi suites, and on-site activities to learn more about each resort. We also recommend reading up about winter proposal ideas, our newly-updated suites, and wintertime vow renewals before booking! Give us a call today at 1-800-432-9932 to book that well-deserved, long-awaited seductive escape.

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

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.

A Genuinely Unforgettable Couples Retreat in PA

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.

Price range: call for pricing (570-488-6996)

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-updated suites, and nearby golf courses before your arrival. To learn more about our Jacuzzi suites, all-inclusive honeymoon packages, and Poconos horseback riding packages, please give us a call today at 800-432-9932.


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.
