A Handy Poconos Honeymoon Planner

Over the decades, we’ve come to recognize that no two couples are alike, especially when it comes to a long-overdue Poconos honeymoon. We perfectly understand that a honeymoon at Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts isn’t for everyone. However, our all-inclusive, four-season retreat checks off most honeymoon-related boxes, including nightly entertainment, surrounding natural beauty, fine dining, and tantalizing lodging. Our three resorts are a short drive from New York City, Philadelphia, and countless other large East Coast cities. And, to ensure that your first getaway as a married couple is nothing short of spectacular, we’ve pieced together a brief, handy honeymoon planner (as seen below).

Honeymoon Packages

It’s probably beneficial to lead this honeymoon planner off with our all-inclusive packages, which start at $1,450. Each three-night stay includes unlimited breakfast and dinner, aphrodisiac treats, champagne, photography, plush bathrobes, chocolate truffles, rose petals, fire logs, candles, nightly live entertainment, and, of course, a Champagne Tower Whirlpool suite. We have a team of Romance Experts that take care of every last detail, many of which can be customized to your liking.

Fine Dining

Future guests are often so distracted by our countless on-site activities, live entertainment, and enticing Jacuzzi suites that they often overlook the fine dining. The menus at each resort, while similar, change with the seasons. But, typically, every day features a different theme, such as Tuesday’s Prime Night or Friday’s International Night. Depending on the evening, you and the love of your life can indulge in panko-crusted salmon, prime rib, stuffed flounder, steak and lobster, or sliced sirloin.

Live Entertainment

No credible honeymoon planner is absent of live, nightly entertainment. You never know what you’ll find here at Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts. Yes, we often host headliners, such as Tracy Morgan, Rob Schneider, and Ken Jeong. But honeymooners will also have the pleasure of enjoying traveling bands, New York City comedians, live DJs, mindblowing magicians, rousing variety acts, and more!

Honeymoon Planner: 15 Romantic Activities

It wouldn’t be a Poconos honeymoon without a variety of adventurous, relaxing, and flirtatious activities. Below you’ll find 15 hand-selected activities that most honeymooners should try, most of which can be accessed via the Key Around Club. For those that have never ventured into the heart of the Pocono Mountains, its beauty is only outmatched by its plenitude of adventure-based exploits.

 

 

 

The Classic Poconos Honeymoon Suite

Perhaps the most important aspect of any honeymoon, regardless of budget, is the suite. Luckily for you and your sweetheart, we’re known as the “honeymoon capital of the world.” Newlyweds have been flocking to our trend-setting resort since the last 1950s. By now, you’ve likely heard all about the Champagne Tower Whirlpool suites, but some of the most romantic guest rooms can be found at the newly-updated Paradise Stream Resort and modernized Pocono Palace Resort. Thanks to extensive updates, our three havens have never looked more beautiful or felt more seductive. To inquire about a potential Poconos honeymoon, please give us a call today at 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

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.

Some couples prefer to stand beside vast Lake Wallenpaupack while others enjoy the comfort and luxury of our many indoor meeting spaces.

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!

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-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.


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!
