4) Visit the best shops and local restaurants:
A nice thing about the Pocono’s is we have a little bit of everything, including some neat shops and restaurants. Being a some-what small town area some of these local spots are not the easiest to find without someone pointing them out.

5) Horseback Riding:
A great activity for any season is visiting the horseback riding stables, get your friends together and experience the adventure of riding a horse on trails through the Pocono’s. We have something for all experience levels and with 3 locations we have something to offer near to almost everything in the surrounding area.
Mountain Creek Riding Stable
Mountain Creek Riding Stable is located in Cresco (very close to Callie’s and other Mountainhome sites), here we offer a beginner paced ride consisting of walking and some trotting. The ride takes 45-50 minutes and crosses though a creek onto a 3 mile wooded trail, you are accompanied by our experienced trail guides. We will take children as young as 7 and 50 inches tall, for anyone too young or that isn’t up to riding yet we also offer horse drawn wagon rides on Sundays.
The Ranch at Pocono Manor
The Ranch at Pocono Manor is located in Mount Pocono (nearby Kalahari Resort), here we offer a little bit of everything. We have beginner rides which are an hour and consist of a walking and trotting pace, children have to be 10 years old. This trail is wooded and great for anyone who has never ridden or has only gone a few times. We also offer our “Waterfall Ride” which is for those who have some experience and are looking for something a little more advanced than the beginner trail. This ride, based on the guides’ judgment of the riders’ ability is a walk/trot/canter pace. Lasting about 90 minutes the guide takes you through the wooded trail and down to a small waterfall site, children must be at least 12 to go on this ride.
Grab your favorite ladies and get this girl’s getaway started!
