A couples getaway in the Poconos is one of the best ways to enjoy the winter season. There are so many romantic places to stay and endless activities that are perfect to do with a significant other.

Book a Stay at Paradise Stream Resort

Down in Paradise Valley, right in the heart of the Pocono Mountains, is Paradise Stream Resort. Why stay here? First of all, Paradise Stream Resort is a couples ONLY resort. No children running around yelling and screaming… it’ll be the quietist stay at a resort you’ve ever had. Also, because it’s a couples only resort, everything is specifically tailored to couples: book the incredible Champagne Tower Suite (seen above), enjoy a heart-shaped whirlpool bath-for-two in the Garden of Eden Apple Suite, or book your stay to include many gift package options like champagne for two, rose petals, and (best of all) chocolate covered cheesecake…you won’t need to go anywhere else!


Enjoy a Spa Service at The Lodge at Woodloch

What could be a more relaxing way to spend your romantic vacation than soaking in a hot tub or booking a couples massage? The Lodge at Woodloch is an AAA Four Diamond destination spa with 27 treatment rooms designed for services that elevate your mind, body, and spirit. Their facilities feature a co-ed Whisper Lounge, Hydromassage WaterWalls, and an activity pool with floor to ceiling windows so you can look out at all the surrounding nature. They even offer a Romance Package, which includes Sommelier selected wine and wine glasses you get to keep. Trust us, you can’t go wrong.


Go Horseback Riding at Mountain Creek Riding Stable

Enjoy the Best Comfort Food at Kasa’s Pizza

After your ride you’re likely to be hungry… and luckily you’re only a short walk away from satisfaction! Kasa’s Pizza is a long-standing pizza place that originally opened in 1978 and has since burned down *twice* and STILL came back to great success! This is all due to the delicious food and ice cream they sell. They even have a tradition of serving heart-shaped pizzas on Valentines Day, making it the perfect pit stop on your couples getaway in the Poconos!


Get a Sweet Treat with your Sweetheart

Callie’s Candy Kitchen is without a doubt the best place to find a sweet treat around. It was founded by Harry and Carole Callie when they were just 19 year old newlyweds in 1952! What could be more romantic than that? Also, it’s only a 15 minute drive from Paradise Stream. The candy kitchen continues to be family owned and operated to this day and houses a museum dedicated to the founders and their candy making exploits. Offering peanut brittle, gummy bears, hard candies, turtles, lollipops, and of course chocolate, there’s something to love for everyone!


See a Show at Sherman Theater

The Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg is the perfect date night activity to round out your couples getaway in the Poconos. You can find any type of entertainment here, from local acts like comedy shows and festivals to large-scale concerts with top performers. The venue offers seated or standing room shows, and features a full bar and state-of-the-art modern sound and lighting. This performance space is both comfortable and historic.


Although nothing beats spending quality time together (and maybe not leaving your hotel room), there are many options to choose from during your stay in the Pocono Mountains. You’re sure to have a romantic stay anytime of year!
