4 Amazing Activities to Enjoy in the Poconos During Winter

4 Amazing Activities to Enjoy in the Poconos During Winter 

If you’re looking for a destination for an unforgettable winter getaway, you can’t go wrong with the Poconos. When the weather begins to cool and a blanket of snow covers the ground, the Poconos become a picture-perfect winter wonderland waiting to be explored. 

On your trip to the Poconos, there is an abundance of winter activities for you to enjoy. The team at Cove Pocono Resorts is here to walk you through the best winter activities the Poconos have to offer. No matter your interests, one of these fantastic activities is sure to fit your fancy and be a highlight of your winter getaway to the Poconos. 


With the area’s mountainous terrain, skiing is undoubtedly one of the top winter activities in the Poconos. There is no shortage of places to hit the slopes, including the famous Camelback Mountain. You can also ski at Pocono Palace, our resort in East Stroudsburg, where cross-country skiing is free for guests at all of our romantic resorts.


If you don’t ski but want to slide down the slopes, try tubing. Tubing is a more leisurely activity than skiing, as you’ll be seated as you ride downhill with your loved one on a thrilling journey through the snow. Many skiing destinations in the Poconos offer tubing, but this exciting activity is available for all of our guests at Cove Haven in Lakeville.


Another way to immerse yourself in the Poconos’ snow-covered landscape is by snowshoeing. The great thing about snowshoeing is that it is a straightforward activity to catch on to, so even if you’ve never snowshoed before, you should be getting around like a seasoned veteran in no time. Its slow pace also gives you plenty of time to take in the marvelous winter setting. You can enjoy snowshoeing in the Poconos at all three of our resorts.


If you have a need for speed, there’s no better activity in the Poconos than snowmobiling. On your snowmobiling adventure, you’ll zip through the snow on a high-speed ride through the beautiful winter setting. While you can rent snowmobiles, you can also ride one at Pocono Palace. 

Plan a Wonderful Winter Getaway to the Poconos 

You can experience all of these exciting winter activities when you stay with Cove Pocono Resorts. In addition to our winter offerings, we also offer classic activities such as bowling, billiards, and more. We also offer live entertainment like bands, comedians, and magicians. In short, our romantic resorts in the Poconos are your all-in-one entertainment destinations. 

We would love to host your winter vacation. To stay with us, please book online or call 888-963-3048 to speak with a reservationist.

Sample Wine From the Best Wineries in the Poconos

If you have a passion for wine, head to the Poconos. The Poconos offers a gorgeous setting for this romantic activity. While the Poconos isn’t world-renowned as a wine mecca like Napa or Sonoma Valley, visitors are surprised and impressed by the area’s bustling wine scene, especially in the Stroudsburg area. There are plenty of great wineries in the area worth checking out.

3 Fabulous Wineries in the Poconos

Are you looking for some suggestions on where to get started? You’ve come to the right place; the team at Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts is here to point you in the right direction. Here’s our guide on the best wineries in the Poconos. 

Mountain View Vineyard

Enjoy your wine with fantastic scenery at Mountain View Vineyard. Sitting out on the porch with a drink in your hand and awe-inspiring mountain views, you’ll feel like you’ve found a slice of paradise. In addition to making wine, they also brew their own beer and distill spirits. While the vineyard is excellent for its unbeatable setting, they also have a wine bar and taproom in a more urban environment in East Stroudsburg. Reservations are required on the weekends. 

The Renegade Winery

Located in the heart of historic Stroudsburg, The Renegade Winery dares to be different. They were the Pocono Mountain region’s first urban winery. They offer a wide assortment of wines to try, including unique offerings like jalapeno and mango habanero. Don’t get scared off by their bold flavors; the Renegade Winery also has more traditional offerings, such as selections of dry red and whites. Our personal favorite is their chardonnay, which is incredibly fresh and crisp. The Renegade Winery is part of the Pocono Wine Trail.

Eagles Rest Cellars

After 30 years as Christmas tree growers, Eagles Rest Cellars expanded into the wine business, and the transition was seamless. They offer two unique tasting options. The first is the solo flight, where you can enjoy sampling four wines at your own pace. The second is a first-class tasting experience, where you’ll sample seven wines with a knowledgeable wine attendant who can guide you through the tasting. They have a beautiful outdoor area complete with fireplaces to stay cozy. 

Pair Your Poconos Wine Tastings with a Romantic Resort

Make a romantic weekend out of your Poconos wine tasting adventure at one of our resorts. These great Poconos wineries are under a 30-minute drive away from Paradise Stream and Poconos Palace.
