10 Intimate, Memorable Pocono Adventures

If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that outdoor recreation still plays a massive role in our relationships. The mountains, rivers, lakes, and forests of Eastern Pennsylvania have never been more enticing than they are today. Luckily for couples in need of an extended weekend of memorable Pocono adventures, Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts is nestled in the lush, rolling backcountry, approximately 90 miles from Manhattan.

10 Pocono Adventures: Excitement and Seduction

Outdoor recreation often gets a bad rap. Contrary to popular belief, some of the most tantalizing Pocono adventures don’t take place in a suite, pool, or beach. Oftentimes, seduction, desire, and flirtation flourish amid Mother Nature’s warm embrace, deep in the Pocono heartland. Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts, a beloved, adult-only romantic escape, proudly presents the Key Around Club. This exclusive club provides access to all three of our honeymoon resorts, including dozens of complimentary activities, curated by our CXOs (Chief eXcitement Officers). Because we boast three all-inclusive resorts in Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains, you’ll never be more than a stroll, bicycle ride, or short drive from one of these 10 Pocono adventures.

  1. Forest bathing – OK, you’re probably wondering, “What the heck is forest bathing?” Well, this ancient Japanese art form is all about utilizing your five senses. While remaining silent, listen to nature’s call, smell the fresh flora, observe the swaying greenery, feel the mossy trees, and taste the earth’s edible delights.
  2. Geocaching – Join the world’s largest treasure hunt in search of another couple’s prized artifact or memory.
  3. Birding – At its core, birding (or “birdwatching”) is easy. However, a pair of binoculars can only amplify the experience. Birding takes patience, cunning, and a keen eye. Common birds in the area include meadowlarks, bald eagles, ladder-backed woodpeckers, and cardinals.
  4. Horseback riding – We have strong relationships with three nearby riding stables in Honesdale, Cresco, and Waymart. Horseback riding is equally playful, uninhibited, and invigorating. Plus, the horses are quite beautiful and majestic.
  5. Berry picking – A sizable, undeniably romantic blueberry farm lies near the edge of Lake Wallenpaupack, just down the road from Cove Haven Resort.
  6. Waterfalling – The subtle art of “waterfalling” is as tantalizing as any other outdoor activity. There’s just something magical about exploring new terrain with your partner, far from civilization’s commotion and infrastructure.
  7. Fishing – All three of our couples destinations are located near water, including the famous Lake Wallenpaupack. Bait, hook, and reel in a monster walleye, slippery brown trout, or feisty smallmouth bass before posing for a keepsake photo!
  8. Kayaking – The aforementioned Lake Wallenpaupack provides 5,700 acres of potential paddle-forward Pocono adventures. You can also kayak on Pocono Palace Resort’s private Echo Lake.
  9. Cycling – There’s a seemingly endless network of bike paths and cycle-friendly backcountry roads in the Pocono Mountains. We provide complimentary bike rentals to ALL guests!
  10. Archery – Archery is quite intimate in nature. To learn the craft, one must be taught in close quarters. Why not learn the sport together? Laughs, shrieks of joy, and, hopefully, bullseyes will ensure.

The World’s Largest Treasure Hunt: Geocaching near Cove Haven

This “sport” has spread like wildfire across North America, including right here in the sprawling Pocono Mountains. Naturally, the mountains are an idyllic place to hide a treasure trove of goodies, trinkets, and heartfelt keepsakes. In fact, here at Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts, many clever lovers utilize the art of a geocache proposal, in which the cache itself is a diamond ring.

Geocaching 101

Without getting overly technical, geocaching is, in broad terms, a 21st-century GPS-enabled treasure hunt where outdoor enthusiasts seek (or hide) a “cache” using nothing but a smartphone, cryptic directions, and years of intuition. There are several apps on the market, but Geocaching.com is the obvious choice. Instead of blindly searching for the “best places to go geocaching near me,” simply enter the app and get started. You’ll be happy to know that there are hundreds of caches near all three of our historic couples retreats. For those that have never geocached with your partner, this hobby can be quite playful, romantic, and flirtatious.

3 Adult-Only Resorts, Hundreds of Possibilities

We won’t spend too much time on the details. Instead, we’ll leave the exploration to you and your partner. After all, the “hunt” is the best part of each adventure. It’s worth noting that Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts provides a bevy of complimentary on-site activities, such as bicycling, paintball, and kayaking. There are also several nearby diversions, including mountaintop ziplining, craft distilleries, and horseback riding. Oh, and a tantalizing Champagne Tower Suite is waiting for you at the end of each day.

 

Many caches lie near Pennsylvania Route 940 within minutes of Paradise Stream Resort. Nearby Kurmes Preserve is said to have a handful of challenging caches and countless acres of sheer tranquility. As you might expect, Cove Haven Resort is a short distance from “The Tunnel of Love,” a small cache near the property’s entrance. Countless hidden gems lie on both ends of Lake Wallenpaupack, including “The Forgotten Woods” and “Pebble Beach Peek-a-boo.” Pocono Palace Resort, the pride of East Stroudsberg, is a short drive from Mt. Nebo Park, home to nearly a dozen caches. We recommend purchasing (or creating) a “geocaching toolbox” if you aim to spend several hours in the dense Pocono wilderness.

Romantic Weekend Getaways in Pennsylvania

There’s never been a more desirable time in history to escape New York City en route to the “Honeymoon Capital of the World.” But, of course, you don’t have to be a honeymooner to plan an extended weekend getaway to Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts. Spend your days sunbathing, swimming, sipping cocktails, and paddling before indulging in steak, live music, and a late-night fireside snuggle in your private suite. Before booking directly, don’t forget to browse through our blazing hot deals online.


U-Pick Berries near Scenic Lake Wallenpaupack

The sweet aromas, vibrant fruit, and lush greenery whisk couples away into the heart of a modern-day love story. Many long-standing farms in the Poconos Mountains offer “U-pick berries” for those with a keen eye for ripe fruit, whether that’s sugary blueberries, subtly-tart raspberries, or juicy strawberries. Berry picking is an art form for some and a leisurely (and playful) mid-day activity for others. Luckily for you and your sweetheart, Cove Haven Resort is a scenic, 14-mile drive away from the yummiest U-pick berries near Manhattan.

The Paupack Blueberry Farm

The Coutts family owns 42 acres of awe-inspiring, undeniably serene farmland a few miles east of Lake Wallenpaupack. Nine varieties of blueberries thrive amid tall trees, quiet ponds, and rolling hills. Repeat visitors admire the dense forestry, ancient farm equipment, and picturesque covered bridge. Oh, and the blueberries are delectably divine. While strolling through the Coutts’ three distinct blueberry fields with your partner, feel free to snap photos, share a smooch, and, of course, taste-test some of the most flavorsome U-pick berries in Pennsylvania.

The General Store: All Things Blueberry

The on-site general store is stocked to the brim with various goodies that are all blueberry “flavored,” such as syrups, jams, jellies, and, heck, even blueberry soap. And, wouldn’t you know it, the multi-talented Coutts family also crafts their own ice cream. As you might expect, the “blueberry cheesecake” ice cream is a revelation. Meanwhile, the bakery features nearly a dozen different types of baked goods, including some of the tastiest scones, muffins, and pies in the state.

Other Nearby U-Pick Berries

For those staying at Pocono Palace Resort or Paradise Stream Resort, Spring Mountain Farms and Heckman Orchards both offer U-pick berries. Heckman’s strawberry harvest will return in 2021. Spring Mountain, meanwhile, is the only U-pick berry farm in the area to grow currants, blackberries, and kiwi berries.

The Most Romantic Places in Pennsylvania

The time to book a long-awaited romantic getaway to the “Honeymoon Capital of the World” is right now before droves of curious New York City residents rediscover the seductive powers of Cove Haven Resort. Berry picking season often aligns with late summer’s golden radiance. Thus, Cove Haven’s guests can combine a couple of hours of berry picking with a half-day of tennis, swimming, fishing, and even indoor ice skating. To learn more about our three all-inclusive resorts in Pennsylvania, please visit us online at CovePoconoResorts.com. We cannot wait to greet all of your smiling faces this summer and fall!


Summertime Lake Wallenpaupack Fishing Adventures

Or, perhaps, it’s finally time to rediscover your long-lost love for bass or walleye fishing that once was an integral aspect of your childhood. Millions of Americans grew up tossing lines into a calm lake at a family cabin, secluded resort, or public pier. However, most adults simply don’t have time to go fishing regularly. The current state of the world has effectively nudged many couples to discover (or rediscover) the art of angling—that’s where Cove Haven Resort’s Lake Wallenpaupack comes into the picture. Lake Wallenpaupack fishing remains an intimate, uninhibited experience for many couples who are looking for a relaxing way to spend time together while immersed in nature.

Lake Wallenpaupack Fishing

It’s worth noting that we naturally offer fishing (at no extra cost) at all three of our award-winning eastern Pennsylvania resorts. The main event, however, remains on Cove Haven Resort’s Lake Wallenpaupack, a 5,700-acre beauty with over 50 miles of shoreline. We own a particularly secluded waterfront property along the north-central rim. Our Key Around Club allows ALL of our visitors to utilize this scenic lake’s glorious aqua for a little mid-afternoon angling.

Cove Haven’s semi-rocky shoreline produces spectacular results (and views) as these waters are shallower than other stretches on the lake. Many particularly adventurous guests prefer kayak fishing, a new rising trend. Others simply cast a line from the shore. We also boast a fleet of pontoon boats, which are perfect for those aiming to troll the waters for smallmouth bass. Otherwise, you can quickly launch your own vessel from the nearby Caffrey Recreation Area. Remember to purchase a Lake Wallenpaupack fishing license before your arrival.

What You’ll Catch

For those that need the personal touch of a Lake Wallenpaupack fishing guide, we recommend Mike Salamon, Hooked Up, and Ray’s Fishing. Otherwise, fishing is one of the most romantic mid-summer activities to undertake with your sweetheart as it’s equally quiet, intimate, and scenic. Sunny skies and warm weather provide the best conditions for landing a boatful of smallmouth bass, walleye, bluegill, largemouth bass, striped bass, calico, perch, brown trout, and panfish. All species of bass, of course, remain the best game fish in the lake. But hooking a 15-pound walleye is what truly gets the blood pumping.

Hotels with a Jacuzzi in the Room

Summer is approaching fast—don’t miss out on a relaxing, undeniably playful Lake Wallenpaupack fishing trip centered around Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts. After several hours of bass fishing, return to your heart-shaped Jacuzzi for a long soak before enjoying steak and lobster in a sleek, retro setting. Dinner is typically followed by live entertainment and a heavenly evening in your private, newly-updated suite. There’s never been a better time than right now to book a Poconos vacation to Cove Haven as many of our world-famous Champagne Tower Suites are still available this summer. Please give us a call today at 1-800-432-9932 to book a long-awaited escape into the lush Pocono Mountains!


The Top 10 Poconos Photography Opportunities

But your average smartphone can capture a professional-looking photo by utilizing nothing but a few new filters and a keen eye.
