Romantic Poconos Activities for Couples:

What to do?

If you’re looking for something special to do for your honeymoon or anniversary, look no further than the Poconos for your romantic couples getaway! You can book a private horseback trail ride in the Poconos for just you and your significant other any time of the year. Wander the trails in the springtime blooms or fall foliage, take a horse-drawn carriage down the trails, or a winter horseback ride. Mountain Creek Riding Stable is open year-round, so your romantic getaway doesn’t have to wait.

You may fall in love with the ease and quiet nature of the Pocono Mountains and horseback trail riding, beginning a new tradition for you to share together for years to come. Return year after year and make a tradition of celebrating your marriage in the Poconos.

Where to stay?

If you’re looking for somewhere unique to stay, look no further than Paradise Stream Resort (or one of their sister resorts within the Cove-Pocono Resorts family, Pocono Palace Resort or Cove Haven Resort). Each resort is a couples-only destination that is made for lovers. If you’re intent on a relaxing and romantic horseback trail ride, then Paradise Stream Resort is closest to Mountain Creek Riding Stable.

If you’re looking for something family-friendly then Pocono Manor Resort and Spa is a great choice and is only a few miles away from Mountain Creek Riding Stable! For the couples that bring their children along for their romantic getaway, Mountain Creek Riding Stable offers pony rides for the little tikes, well behaved and warm horses for beginner riders on the trail, and wagon rides for those who prefer no to ride. Horseback trail rides can be as intimate or as family-friendly as you’d like!

Our last recommendation is for those couples looking for a more secluded place to stay in the Poconos. The French Manor Inn and Spa is nestled in the woods on top of a small mountain and offers beautiful views.


What is the best season for honeymooning and a romantic getaway?

The best season during which you should honeymoon or take a romantic couples getaway in the Pocono Mountains is…. the season you love the most! It may sound corny, but the beautiful Pocono Mountains has all four seasons and, in general, no season where the weather is a problem consistently.

The summer is great for all of your favorite outdoor activities but with temperatures that (especially now with climate change) are much milder than comparable destinations. The Fall brings some of the most beautiful leaf watching this side of Vermont. The Winter finds great skiing and some of the most tranquil horseback riding you can experience. And Spring is wonderful because, while the weather is fine, a majority of people tend to stay home and save up vacation time for Summer, so you won’t run into the crowds if you plan for Spring.

What are the most romantic places in the Poconos?

One of the best places to visit that can be a little day trip while you’re staying in the Poconos is Jim Thorpe. This town prides itself on being tourist-friendly and has many activities and cute shops and restaurants… you have to check out the town’s website run by the Tourism Board for all of the details but we guarantee you will love it!

Outside of this, much closer to Mountain Creek Riding Stable is a small town called Cresco that is only about 15 minutes away from the stable. While not built for tourists, there are antique shops, Callie’s Candy Kitchen and Callie’s Pretzel Factory, two local places that produce their own candy and pretzels, and hidden gems for dining like Basso Italiana, a local Italian restaurant with excellent food.

These quaint and romantic Pennsylvania towns are perfect for a weekend getaway for two (or the family). Plan everything, or just wander and relish the time together.

Are you in the process of planning a wedding or special event?
