Mt. Pocono, PA: Home to Couples-Only Paradise Stream Resort

Paradise Stream remains the pride of Mt. Pocono, a quiet, undeniably scenic mountain town between the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area and The Electric City. Throughout all four beautifully dissimilar seasons, Paradise Stream entices couples from all across the Northeast in need of a well-deserved romantic escape. Mt. Pocono itself, however, is a uniquely pristine slice of the Pocono Mountains, with its many preserves, quaint cafes, and surrounding attractions.

Mt. Pocono: A Quintessential Mountain Town

The town of Mt. Pocono has become synonymous with romance, mainly because of Paradise Stream Resort’s 143-suite castle of seduction. Mt. Pocono is a mere 90-mile scenic drive from the Manhattan Bridge, the gateway to the country’s most dazzling city. That being said, even Manhattanites need a brief respite from the city’s hustle and racket. Sleepy Mt. Pocono is an idyllic spot to enjoy lunch while mingling with locals and reminiscing of a long-overdue couples retreat.

 

After a mid-day meal at charming Fork Street Bistro, lively Mi Casa, or authentic Bella Villa Pizza, visit a nearby brewery or distillery. Pocono Brewing Company, Silverback Distillery, and Barley Creek Brewing Company are all a short drive from our adult-only resort. And don’t forget about the outdoors: Bushkill Falls, Tobyhanna State Park, Big Pocono State Park, Mountain Creek Riding Stables, and the Delaware Water Gap all provide a beautiful backdrop to a playful afternoon stroll with your partner.

Paradise Stream: A Heavenly Honeymoon Resort

But, of course, Paradise Stream Resort’s guests don’t have to wander off-site to bask in the sheer beauty of the sprawling Pocono Mountains. All-inclusive packages include a bevy of complimentary outdoor activities, such as bicycling, tennis, archery, hiking, and fishing. During the warmest summer afternoons, couples gravitate toward our outdoor swimming pool with a Mango Tequila Sunrise cocktail in hand from TanLines Bar. Packages also include two meals daily, nightly live entertainment, concierge services from our CXOs (Chief eXcitement Officers), and the most tantalizing fantasy suites near New York City.

To book a long-awaited Poconos weekend getaway to Mt. Pocono, please give us a call today at 800-432-9932. You can also book directly online at CovePoconosResorts.com.


Summer Reading Challenge: 10 Thrilling Beach Reads

When Oprah Magazine, Parade, and Good Housekeeping release their annual lists of summer beach reads, people instantly take notice. This year, all eyes are glued to 28 Summers, The Vanishing Half, and Friends and Strangers (among countless others).  For most, a beach read should be formulaic, twisted, intelligible, and, of course, unpredictable. An idyllic location to finish a novel beside your partner is right here at Pocono Palace Resort’s exclusive Echo Lake, a sandy paradise with little-to-no foot traffic. So, throw a towel down on the sand, coat yourself in sunscreen, and strap in for an emotional thrill-ride because this summer reading challenge will be a memorable one. 

A Fun Reading Challenge: 10 Gripping Beach Reads

This staff-curated summer reading challenge is sure to provide you and your loved one with enough twists and turns for the next decade. For those in need of a useful resource on potential reads, look no further than Goodread’s annual Choice Awards. A handful of award-winning novels that narrowly missed this summer reading challenge include The Woman in the Window, Never Let Me Go, The Silent Patient, and My Sister, the Serial Killer. In the end, these 10 books set a new bar for the mystery genre, thanks to the likes of Gillian Flynn, Blake Crouch, and up-and-comer Jane Harper.

1. Before the Fall, Noah Hawley

It’s easy to empathize with Scott Burroughs, Hawley’s lonely plane crash survivor. Very rarely does raw human emotion leap off the page quite like it does in Before the Fall.

2. Gone Girl, Gillian Flynn

Flynn’s crowning achievement, Gone Girl, is a masterstroke built on layers of mischief. Amy Dunne remains one of the decades most beloved heroines.

3. Annihilation, Jeff VanderMeer

VanderMeer’s first glimpse into the fictional “Southern Reach” will stick with you long after the final line. Annihilation is equal parts science fiction, psychological thriller, and family drama—a true game-changer.

4. Pines, Blake Crouch

Pines, much like Annihilation, is the first book of a stirring trilogy. Crouch’s Abandon and Desert Places are undeniably enthralling, but the Wayward Pines trio ranks among the most mindblowing collective works to date.

5. The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins

In many ways, Flynn’s Gone Girl laid the groundwork for Hawkins’ Girl on the Train. This dreamy, hard-hitting novel doesn’t hold back. Rachel’s journey is bleak, poignant, and perplexing, to say the least.

6. The Dry, Jane Harper

Harper’s breathtaking debut is a vivid examination of a quiet (or so they thought) Australian farming community riddled with secrets.


The Top 10 Poconos Photography Opportunities

Yes, there’s still something artistic and nostalgic about Polaroids (which recently came back in style). But your average smartphone can capture a professional-looking photo by utilizing nothing but a few new filters and a keen eye. Several apps, such as Instagram, Snapchat, Pinterest, and VSCO, have ushered in a new era of digital photography, particularly for those with a penchant for nature, food, and architecture. And there’s no shortage of classic Poconos photography opportunities here at Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts, as our three award-winning respites are located amid jaw-dropping scenery.

Poconos Photography: 10 Instagram Photo Ideas

As you can probably imagine, many of our vibrant, nostalgic features, such as the world-famous Champagne Tower Suite, are quite popular amongst amateur digital photographers. Couples often snap tasteful selfies inside one of our tantalizing hot tubs or near a crackling wood-burning fireplace. But don’t be afraid to branch out into the surrounding wilderness to get that perfect shot! We always urge guests to challenge each other—the photo with the most likes during your getaway earns a special, sexy surprise, perhaps?

  1. Bushkill Falls, the “Niagara of Pennsylvania”
  2. A Delaware Water Gap overlook: Perhaps, Tank Hallow or Mount Minsi?
  3. Kayaking on Lake Wallenpaupack
  4. Rowing on Pocono Palace Resort’s private Echo Lake
  5. Amid a thriving vineyard: Mountain View Vineyard and Eagles Rest Cellars are both stellar options.
  6. A romantic (and picturesque) picnic date
  7. Saddle up and ride through the Poconos. But don’t leave without a selfie with your majestic, friendly horse.
  8. Hickory Run State Park’s Boulder Field
  9. Inside a heart-shaped Jacuzzi
  10. Soar through the evening sky with Fantasy Balloon Flights in nearby Middletown, NY.

Adult-Only Resorts in Pennsylvania

Poconos photography comes as naturally as a spellbinding sunrise atop Lake Wallenpaupack, especially when you spend an extended break at Cove Haven Resort, one of the county’s most recognizable destinations. Hopefully, these 10 Instagram photo ideas give you a little better understanding of what to expect here in the rolling Pocono Mountains. Don’t forget that your long-overdue Poconos weekend getaway can not only feature ample outdoor recreation, but each of our award-winning resorts feature fine dining, nightly entertainment, and incredibly tantalizing suites. It’s also worth noting that Cove Haven is an all-inclusive institution, so everything’s included for one low price! Please don’t hesitate to call today at 1-800-432-9932 to learn more about what makes our particularly heartwarming slice of Pennsylvania so incredibly alluring. We’ll also be happy to help arrange a couple of fun photography activities for you and your sweetheart!


A Visitor’s Guide to Pennsylvania’s Bushkill Falls

First and foremost, Bushkill Falls rests in a particularly jaw-dropping Pocono Mountain expanse near the sprawling Delaware Water Gap. Secondly, it’s only a six-mile drive from the award-winning Pocono Palace Resort, home to the world-famous (and newly-updated) Champagne Tower Suite. So, grab your best guy or gal, lace up your hiking boots, pack a picnic basket, and journey into the heart of the rolling Pocono Mountains for a once in a lifetime adventure!

The Niagara of Pennsylvania

Bushkill Falls opened “it’s doors” in 1904, much to the delight of Pennsylvanians and New Yorkers alike. It didn’t take long for visitors to label Bushkill Falls as the “Niagara of Pennsylvania.” While the two attractions don’t necessarily resemble each other in scale, travelers often exclaim that Bushkill’s eight waterfalls are too beautiful for words, much like Niagara. This 300-acre estate, despite seeing semi-constant foot traffic, remains as pristine as it did over 100 years ago, thanks to the hard work from generations of groundskeepers. Yes, the park does cost money, but that small fee helps preserve this glorious land.

Bushkill Falls Hiking Trails

Over the decades, Bushkill Falls has welcomed an array of on-site attractions into the already engrossing mix. When you’re not strolling, hand in hand, along one of the four beautiful Bushkill Falls trails, you can mine for gemstones, fish for brook trout, paddle onto Twin Lakes, and try some homemade fudge. We also recommend bringing along a picnic basket filled with turkey sandwiches (or wraps), crisp carrots, apple slices, and perhaps a small bag of SunChips. Don’t forget to stroll through the grounds in search of the perfect photo opportunity. Perhaps the photo with the most likes on Instagram earns a special, tantalizing prize upon your return to Pocono Palace Resort? The two-mile Red Trail meanders past all eight waterfalls. Thus, making it the trail of choice for most couples.

The Key Around Club | A Tantalizing Poconos Weekend Getaway

Naturally, Pocono Palace Resort is the top-reviewed romantic destination near Bushkill Falls. However, it’s worth noting that you’ll also have exclusive access to all three of our award-winning resorts (including Cove Haven Resort and Paradise Stream Resort) during your stay, thanks to our complimentary Key Around Club. Each resort has a distinct array of on-site amenities and activities, such as roller skating, Spikeball, lawn darts, KanJam, and water tubing. All of our resorts, however, share many defining features, including fine dining, nightly live entertainment, and the most alluring suites on the East Coast. Please give us a call today at 1-800-432-9932 to get matched with a resort and a suite that perfectly suits your style and budget. Again, Pocono Palace Resort is a mere six miles down the road from beautiful Bushkill Falls!
