Walk along a lightly traveled trail for a little quiet time, then cuddle next to a crackling fireplace while nibbling on chocolate-covered strawberries. If this sounds like your perfect couple’s getaway, whisk your partner away to the Poconos. This eastern Pennsylvania mountain range will capture your attention and heart with beautiful resorts, romantic inns and cozy cabin nights. Here’s our pick – bookable on Culture Trip.

1. Pocono Palace Resort

Say “I do” all over again at the Pocono Palace Resort. Even if an elaborate vow renewal celebration isn’t your cup of tea, pop a bottle of champagne and schedule a professional photo session to capture your love forever. Give the apple of your eye a truly unforgettable experience by reserving the Fantasy Apple suite. This three-level circular suite has a blue-shaded skylight and plexiglass floors that overlook your private pool and blue heart-shaped whirlpool.

2. Cove Haven Resort

If a log-burning fireplace, a king-size bed and a heart-shaped whirlpool for two are all you and your love need, then Cove Haven Resort has you covered. The pampering extends far beyond the room, though, with unlimited breakfast, dinner and nightlife all included with your stay, giving the two of you a perfect excuse to order another round of room service that you can dance off at one of the on-site weekly concerts.

3. Skytop Lodge

Romance may seem difficult with an infant on your lap, but Skytop Lodge makes your new baby getaway effortless. Cribs and pack ‘n’ plays can be sent to your room – accompanied by a bottle of champagne, a milk and cookies plate, a fruit and cheese platter or countless other treats to spoil your partner. Strap the babe to your chest and head off on a quiet hike through the lodge’s private trails, crossing your fingers that your bundle of joy stays sleeping long enough to snag a quick cocktail in the Library Lounge.

4. The Lodge at Woodloch

Get to know yourself and your partner a little better at the Lodge at Woodloch. With a host of art classes, mindfulness exercises, outdoor experiences and culinary delights that will spark conversation and rediscovery, it’s ideal for new couples or those who feel the need to reconnect. At night, relax on the balcony, talking about your sound therapy session and who was better at hatchet throwing.

5. Hotel Fauchère

Embrace each other and the finer things in life at Hotel Fauchère. With fine art adorning the property, a private conservatory and an enclosed garden, this refined hotel was made for strolls and holding hands. Reserve a romantic getaway package and watch your spouse smile at the roses, chocolate-covered strawberries and bottle of bubbly waiting in the room at check-in. Keep the fire burning with a private night beside the garden’s firepit while cuddling beneath a complimentary blanket.

6. Paradise Stream Resort

You love paintball, laser tag and minigolf, while your partner loves snow tubing, pedal boat rides and long walks in the woods. Paradise Stream Resort is a match made in heaven for the two of you. Dozens of indoor and outdoor activities are yours to experience together. KanJam, spikeball and lawn jarts will send you home with funny stories to tell, but if you’re not feeling too adventurous, a hot chocolate couple’s massage may hit your sweet spot.

7. Stroudsmoor Country Inn

Spend those last precious pre-baby moments in the luxurious Ledgemere suite, with its Italian marble bathroom, cozy fireplace and relaxing whirlpool. Brighten up the babymoon with complimentary breakfast and dinner bookending an afternoon spa treatment for two. As you pour a few flutes of sparkling cider at your wet bar and nibble on berries by the fireplace, you’ll be tempted to book your post-baby getaway here, too.

8. Rainbow Mountain Resort

No matter who you love, the adults-only Rainbow Mountain Resort invites all couples and allies of the LGBTQ community to stay and play in the Poconos. Splashing in the pool, working up a sweat on the tennis court, relaxing in the hot tub – there’s more than one spot to lay down a towel on this 26-acre (11ha) resort. If you get enough evenings cuddled up at home, dance the night away at the on-site Hayloft Playroom dance club.
