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.

A Genuinely Unforgettable Couples Retreat in PA

There are countless memorable proposal ideas to choose from here at Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts, including on horseback, during a snowball fight, and in the middle of a live performance. “Your Dream” Proposal Packages can include a photography session, candles, champagne, rose petals, and so much more! For even more outdoor proposal ideas, please give our talented team a call today at 570-839-5238.


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. 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.


The 3 Best Wineries in the Poconos

In fact, the Poconos Mountains see just as much foot traffic and interest as those faraway destinations because of our region’s proximity to the New York Metropolitan Area’s 20 million residents. There are dozens of award-winning wineries in the Poconos, many of which offer vineyard tours, special events, and inexpensive wine flights.

The Best Wineries in the Poconos near Cove Haven

Many couples plan a self-guided, mid-day trip along the “Pocono wine trail” during their stay here at Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts. With so many wineries in the Poconos, finding the best vineyards in the area can be challenging. Luckily for you and your sweetheart, we’ve pieced together the three premier wineries in PA based on customer feedback and personal experience. The breathtaking Pocono wine trail is perhaps the closest thing that compares to a trip to Southern Europe.

Mountain View Vineyard – Stroudsburg

Narrowing this list down to three was taxing, but Mountain View Vineyard was always a no-brainer. It’s easy to fall in love with their countryside landscape, mountain-view tasting room, and personalized service. This 100-acre farm is entirely sustainable—and they don’t just make wine! After savoring a semi-dry Chambourcin and Cayuga blend, we recommend taste-testing their distilled spirits and craft beer. Don’t forget to join one of their Pocono wine tours, which begin at 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Must-try: Bliss, Wild Mountain Rose, and Mountain Goat Red.

Eagles Rest Cellars – Stroudsburg

Eagles Rest Cellars remains one of the most underrated wineries in the Poconos, but that shouldn’t stop you from taking a trip to this 900-vine, 4,500-Christmas tree farm. They provide vineyard tours on the weekends, but the tasting room is open four days a week. Even if a vineyard tour isn’t available, we still highly recommend taking a stroll on their farm—the misty Pocono Mountains tower over the land. For just $5 per person, you can enjoy a flight of five wines. You’ll also receive a glass to take home. The Pocono wine tours, meanwhile, cost just $8. Must-try: Taxi, Cruise, and Attitude.

Sorrenti Cherry Valley Vineyard – Saylorsburg

Sorrenti Cherry Valley Vineyard is one of the oldest wineries in the Poconos as it opened for business back in 1981. Until the early 1980s, many believed that growing grapes in this climate was impossible. But Dominic Sorrenti proved them wrong as his lifelong dream of owning a vineyard became a reality. You won’t find many vineyards in PA with a more gripping backstory. Sorrenti hosts many events, such as grape stomps, paint ‘n sips, and the annual Sangria Festival. Must-try: Blackberry Noir, Raspberry Spumante, and Pinot Grigio.

Well-Deserved Couples Retreat in PA

After an afternoon on the Pocono wine trail, return to Pocono Palace Resort or Paradise Stream Resort for a seafood dinner, a dusk walk, live entertainment, and a soak in a world-famous Champagne Tour Whirlpool. To learn more about our Jacuzzi suites, wedding packages, and hot deals, please visit us online. And don’t forget to brush up on our nearby attractions, road trips, engagement locations, and hiking trails before your arrival.


The 3 Best Pocono Golf Courses

As far as we’re concerned, there’s no better golf destination in the world than the Pocono Mountains during autumn’s peak. The sprawling, rolling mountains in this awe-inspiring region transform into a vivid, eye-popping mixture of blazing amber, rich marigold, deep crimson, and bright green. As you might expect, the fall foliage allures hundreds of thousands of golfers into the Pocono Mountains each year. One of our most popular off-campus, couples-friendly activities here at Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts is 18 holes of golf. And luckily for you and your sweetheart, our world-famous Jacuzzi suites are just a short distance from the three best Pocono golf courses.

The Best Pocono Golf Courses near Cove Haven

Browsing through the top-rated Pocono golf courses can be a bit taxing as there are so many options. So, we decided to rank the three best golf clubs based on personal experience and customer feedback. Each of these Pocono Mountain golf courses is within 30 minutes of our resorts. It’s worth noting that Cove Haven Resort and Pocono Palace Resort both have a driving range, so feel free to hit some balls before your departure.

Paupack Hills Golf Course & Country Club – Greentown

All three of these Pocono golf courses were selected for a reason, most notably the surrounding beauty. You won’t find more vibrant colors in the region. Paupack Hills Golf Course rests just on the other side of Lake Wallenpaupack from Cove Haven Resort—a scenic, relaxing 16-mile drive. The course itself features skinny, challenging fairways, pristine bunkers, soft greens, and jaw-dropping tee shots. This Tom Fazio masterpiece hugs Lake Tanglwood amidst deep forestry, creating a genuinely peaceful ambiance that occasionally allures wildlife.

Buck Hill Golf Club – Buck Hill Falls

Buck Hill Golf Club is just six miles north of Paradise Stream Resort, which is an added perk for our visiting golf enthusiasts. Take one peek at their website, and we guarantee that you’ll pick up the phone to make a tee time. Each hole is entirely enclosed by dense, colorful forestry. There are 27 well-designed holes at this 112-year-old staple that are split into three nine-hole Pocono golf courses: Red, White, and Blue. The original 1907 Red Course is the hilliest, while golfers have fallen in love with the Blue Course’s elevated tee shots.

Great Bear Golf Club – East Stroudsburg

We may have saved the best for last. Great Bear Golf Club, located just 1.9 miles from Pocono Palace Resort, is a beginner-friendly, Jack Nicklaus-designed marvel. It’s proximity to the Delaware Water Gap helps provide natural beauty that you won’t find at many other Pocono golf courses. Great Bear sees less foot traffic than the previous two entries, which is certainly a plus for those looking for a swift round with their sweetheart. It’s also one of the newest courses in the area as its doors opened in 1997.

Couples Getaway in PA

As we stated previously, very few activities can top 18 holes of Poconos golf. However, Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts’ nightly live entertainment, free on-site amenities, all-inclusive fine dining, and seductive Champagne Tower Whirlpools will likely lure you both away from the tee box. If you plan to visit us in autumn, please read about our fall bucket list, foliage day-trips, and couples activities. Give us a call today at 800-432-9932 to learn more about our all-inclusive honeymoon packages, Jacuzzi suites, and Forever Lovers Club!


Poconos Kayaking at Cove Haven

With summer officially in the rearview mirror, millions of couples turn their attention to the most romantic season of the year: autumn. Every fall, the Pocono Mountains transform into a vibrant meld of amber, marigold, kelly green, and crimson. This picturesque land allures couples from New York City, Philadelphia, and all across the East Coast. And one of the most romantic mid-fall activities in our region is kayaking. Nothing tops an hour or two of serene Poconos kayaking in the crisp, fresh mountain air while surrounded by vivid, eye-popping fall foliage. When you choose a passionate, uninhibited stay at Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts, you’ll always be steps from quintessential Pocono adventures such as kayaking, fishing, and bicycling.

Autumn Poconos Kayaking

Couples often search for “kayaking near me” when visiting the Pocono Mountains, but you’ll be happy to hear that both Cove Haven Resort and Pocono Palace Resort offer exclusive, complimentary access to a wide variety of kayaks. We provide free access to nearly a dozen adventure sports, but there’s something magical about a paddling excursion when the colors are at their peak.

Cove Haven Resort – Lake Wallenpaupack

Poconos kayaking, especially during autumn’s peak, is equally relaxing, invigorating, and playful. And luckily for you and your sweetheart, Lake Wallenpaupack provides some of the best kayaking in the Poconos. Lake Wallenpaupack spans 5,700 acres with approximately 52 miles of shoreline. Paddlers are only allowed within the cove of the lake for the safety of our guests, but, thankfully, this stretch of the lake is jaw-droppingly beautiful in autumn.

Pocono Palace Resort – Echo Lake

Whereas Lake Wallenpaupack is one of the most popular Poconos kayaking destinations, Pocono Palace Resort’s private Echo Lake is a secluded hidden gem. Most couples only spend an hour or so paddling along the outer banks of this still body of water, which is enclosed by towering forestry. During the fall season, these diverse trees provide a heartwarming glow and a golden sheen on Echo Lake.

5 (More) Romantic Things to Do in the Poconos This Fall

For those who’re staying at Paradise Stream Resort, you’ll have exclusive access to rowboats and pedal boats (but no kayaks). And the colors on the trees around the Lakeside Villas are quite lovely to enjoy during a quiet stroll around Lake Eden. While nothing tops an hour or two of Poconos kayaking during mid-October, we urge couples to embark on a wilderness stroll, throw a line into the lake for a monster northern pike, and play a paintball match against other couples. To ensure that your mid-fall getaway is nothing short of flawless, we’ve compiled five more of our favorite on-site autumn activities:

  • Bicycling
  • Croquet
  • Fishing
  • Golf driving range
  • Guided nature walk

Discover the Most Vibrant Poconos Fall Foliage

Some may argue that Valentine’s Day, New Year’s Eve, and even June 25 are the most romantic dates on the calendar, but there’s no denying the seductive allure of autumn’s peak. There’s just something magical about colorful, falling leaves, spicy beverages, and cozy (often plaid) attire, especially for couples aiming to spend some well-deserved time away from home. Northeastern Pennsylvania’s Poconos fall foliage remains the #1 spot to observe vibrant colors, according to TripSavvy. Whether you’re planning a mid-fall honeymoon, vow renewal, or just a little overdue autumn romance, you’ll never forget your extended weekend stay at Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts.

The Romantic Allure of Poconos Fall Foliage

As the top-rated romantic getaways in PA near New York City, we’re always looking for fun, convenient ways for couples to discover the most vibrant Poconos fall foliage. Some of our favorite on-site autumn activities include hiking, fishing, and kayaking, but you’re more than welcome to explore the surrounding forestry during your stay. To ensure that your next romantic vacation is nothing short of flawless, we’ve compiled three adventurous date ideas that are particularly fun during autumn’s peak!

Lake Wallenpaupack

A lot of couples only know about Lake Wallenpaupack from NBC’s The Office, but this scenic, 5,700-acre body of water is entirely enclosed by lush forestry which subtly transforms into an awe-inspiring blend of crimson, amber, marigold, and kelly green during autumn’s peak. Guests at Cove Haven Resort enjoy easy access to Lake Wallenpaupack as well as complimentary usage of pedal boats, rowboats, pontoon boats, paddleboards, and kayaks. Embark on a sequestered voyage into the heart of Lake Wallenpaupack to obtain a 360-degree view of the surrounding Pocono Mountains. The Poconos fall foliage in Northeastern Pennsylvania is particularly vibrant thanks to this region’s consistent weather patterns.

Delaware Water Gap

It’s no longer a secret that the Delaware Water Gap, which acts as a natural border between Pennsylvania and New Jersey, is one of the most incredible sights along the East Coast. Some of the most jaw-dropping Poconos fall foliage can be discovered from a variety of hiking trails near the city of East Stroudsburg, PA, home to Pocono Palace Resort. We recently wrote about our region’s three best hiking trails, which included the Delaware Water Gap’s Mount Minsi. While Mount Minsi is the top-rated trail in the area, we also recommend the Appalachian Trail, Tumbling Waters Trail, and Hackers Falls for adventurous couples.

Bushkill Falls

Bushkill Falls quickly earned the moniker “The Niagara of Pennsylvania” when visitors began to associate these dramatic waterfalls with one of the world’s wonders. Pocono Palace Resort is just 11 minutes from Bushkill Falls, so a quick day-trip should be on your docket. The quintessential Poconos fall foliage that encloses Little Bushkill Creek and Pond Run Creek is exceptionally vivid for several weeks, which is why this unique park is one of our favorite romantic fall date ideas near Pocono Palace Resort. Because there are several on-site hiking trails, you could spend anywhere from 15 minutes to two hours at these eight breathtaking waterfalls.

Romantic Fall Getaways

Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts is known for its all-inclusive packages, Champagne Tower Whirlpools, and free, nightly live entertainment. But don’t forget to observe the area’s quintessential Poconos fall colors while trying these three adventurous dates ideas. Of course, couples can also partake in their favorite things about fall, such as pumpkin-spiced lattes, wilderness strolls, and fireside snuggles.

As we all swap our swimsuits for colorful, plaid outfits, travelers turn their attention to the highly-anticipated fall season.

Couples from across the region (most notably New York City) flock to the Pocono Mountains every autumn to partake in a wide variety of quintessential autumn activities. Autumn’s peak has a playful, seductive allure as this popular season naturally encourages romance, such as long walks, fireside snuggles, and a healthy dose of youthful, harvest season nostalgia.

Autumn Romance: The Top 5 Fall Activities for Couples

We’re rapidly approaching the most colorful (and romantic) season of the year: autumn. Every fall, the dense forestry that sheath the Pocono Mountains here at Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts transform into an awe-inspiring meld of amber, crimson, marigold, and kelly green. And we have three alluring, liberating resorts within driving distance of New York City, all of which have their own unique romantic trademarks. These four-season, adult-only resorts feature a plethora of on-site fall activities for couples that are entirely free to all guests. You and your sweetheart can spend your days kayaking, hiking, and fishing before settling in for a gourmet dinner followed by rousing live entertainment.

The Top 5 Fall Activities for Couples

While you’ll likely want to spend as much time as possible soaking in your private Champagne Tower Whirlpool, we cannot blame you if you’re aching to explore the colorful Pocono Mountains. So, we’ve compiled five of our favorite things about fall that also make tantalizing, adventurous date ideas.

1. A Trip Around Scenic Lake Wallenpaupack

All three of our Northeastern Pennsylvania resorts provide a wide variety of paddling opportunities, via kayaks, rowboats, paddleboards, and pedal boats. One of our most popular on-site fall activities for couples is an afternoon rowboat expedition, especially if you’re staying at Cove Haven Resort on 5,700-acre Lake Wallenpaupack. Spend an hour or two rowing along the serene shoreline to admire the Pocono Mountains’ vibrant hues.

2. Mallets of Fun

Throw on a cozy sweater or your favorite flannel shirt and partake in a friendly game of croquet. We recommend squaring off against another couple—Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts is an idyllic place to meet new friends! For those who’ve never played a game of croquet, this simple video tutorial explains the basics. Croquet is particularly enjoyable on a crisp autumn afternoon when the ground is littered with colorful leaves.

3. Autumn “Forest Bathing”

A new form of therapy has been sweeping through the nation recently: “forest bathing,” yet another one of our favorite fall activities for couples. “Leaf peepers” can combine an early-morning, afternoon, or sunset stroll in the lush, vivid countryside with a healthy dose of relaxation. We offer guided nature walks to couples, but you’re always free to venture into the wilderness at any time with your fingers laced.

4. Hook, Line, and Sinker

Whether you’re aiming to throw a line into massive Lake Wallenpaupack or a nearby pond, river, or creek, you and your sweetheart will be cocooned by vibrant fall foliage. The most common species in the region are smallmouth bass, brown trout, striped bass, muskie, and crappie, but you never know who will be biting on a given day. Fishing is one of the most relaxing fall activities for couples as you’ll be serenaded by the soothing sounds of nature and autumn’s dazzling colors.

5. Target Practice

A couple’s archery session remains one of our favorite romantic fall date ideas here at Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts. Our sizable archery ranges are set amidst lush forestry. If you’ve never fired an arrow before, you can learn the basics from an on-site licensed professional. Learn about stance, finger placement, bow nocking, anchoring, and follow-through before taking your first shot. Archery may not be one of our most prototypical autumn activities, but it’s a fun way for couples to learn a new sport together.

Romantic Ideas: Sample 1-Day Itinerary at Pocono Palace

Planning a honeymoon, vow renewal, or romantic weekend getaway can be mildly stressful primarily because we want to make these trips memorable. The easiest way to relieve stress while planning a couples retreat is to choose an all-inclusive, couples-only resort, which is where Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts enters the picture. We’re continually brainstorming romantic ideas, such as the Land of Love app, in an effort to enhance the guest experience. Not only do we have three of the top-rated four-season Poconos hotels, but our continuously-improving amenities, guest suites, and activities help ensure that each couple enjoys a seductive, adventurous, and relaxing getaway.

Sample 1-Day Itinerary at Pocono Palace Resort

Perhaps the easiest way to lure a curious couple from New York City, Philadelphia, or Scranton is to provide an easy-to-read sample itinerary to illustrate what a day looks and feels like at the Pocono Palace Resort in East Stroudsburg, PA. Hopefully, this itinerary sparks some romantic ideas for couples looking to spice things up this summer.

9 a.m. – Breakfast Buffet at the Lakeview Restaurant

Start your well-deserved Poconos getaway with a hearty breakfast buffet inside the Lakeview Restaurant. The buffet features crispy bacon, sliced ham, homemade grits, scrambled eggs, French toast, and so much more!

10:30 a.m. – Sunbathe on the Beach

Pocono Palace Resort has a private lakeside beach along the northwest edge of our secluded, beautiful body of water. Don’t forget two towels, sunscreen, and a gripping beach read!

11:20 a.m. – Kayak

After a 45-minute tanning session under the golden summer sun, hop aboard a tandem kayak to explore our peaceful, exclusive Echo Lake. Guests especially enjoy the serenity of this private lake – and you’ll likely observe a wide variety of colorful birds and curious fish during your journey.

12:10 p.m. – Nature Trail Walk and Picnic

We don’t provide lunch at Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts, mainly because guests typically prefer to explore our three beautiful, adult-only Poconos resorts during the day time. So, we highly recommend packing a picnic for your nature trail walk around Echo Lake. After a 30-minute stroll, find a soft spot in the grass, and munch on turkey sandwiches, chips, and crisp vegetables.

1:30 p.m. – Water Ski

When piecing together romantic ideas during the summer months, it’s essential to fill a day with relaxing activities (such as sunbathing, kayaking, and walking) as well as plenty of adventure. Echo Lake is the perfect place to learn how to water ski with your sweetheart.

2:20 p.m. – Swimming Pool and Hot Tub

Rest your legs with a refreshing swim in our indoor pool and a soak in a soothing hot tub. Our state-of-art pool facilities are quiet, clean, and an excellent place for a little afternoon flirtation.

3:25 p.m. – Paintball

One of our favorite romantic ideas here at Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts is stepping outside your comfort zone. Most couples probably wouldn’t play paintball, laser tag, or Spikeball during a couples retreat, but we’re not your average romantic trip.

4:10 p.m. – Cocktails at Tanlines Bar & Grill

After a full day of exciting, intimate activities, stop by Tanlines Bar & Grill for a refreshing signature cocktail. The best way to beat the summer heat is a quick visit to Tanlines, where you’ll discover seven delicious cocktails on the menu. We particularly love the Mojito, Sex on the Beach, and Bahama Mama.

6:30 p.m. – Romantic Dinner

After freshening up in your suite, walk over to Lakeview Restaurant for a dinner that you’ll never forget. Depending on the day, you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy prime rib, seafood linguini, pan-seared salmon, and Cajun catfish.

8 p.m. – Live Entertainment at the Applause Night Club

The on-site Applause Night Club is your after-dark entertainment hub as live bands, comedians, and performers grace the stage every evening. Feel free to browse through our live entertainment to get a better grasp of what we offer here in the majestic Pocono Mountains!

10:30 p.m. – Champagne Tower Whirlpool Suite

Before retiring for the evening, make sure to take full advantage of your world-renowned Champagne Tower Whirlpool suite.
