Couples Resorts in the Pocono Mountains

By Marcia Frost

With 150 lakes and rolling hills that change color with the season, the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania is a wonderful destination for romance. There are four counties within the Poconos that offer a variety of activities, including championship golf courses designed by masters like Donald Ross, A.W. Tillinghast, Rocky Roquemore and Jack Nicklaus. Couples can stay in resorts that offer their own courses.

Penn Hills Resort

The Penn Hills Resort has accommodations for couples that include private saunas, whirlpools and fireplaces. The hotel's Rainbow Waterfalls adds to a romantic climate, but there is still plenty of activity at the sports facilities. The hotel is next door to the Evergreen Golf Club and offers free golf (and skiing at Alpine Mountain) to its guests.

Caesars Pocono Resorts

Caesars Pocono Resorts -- Cove Haven, Paradise Stream and Pocono Palace -- are famous in the Pocono Mountains as the place for couples. From Champagne tower whirlpools to heart shape beds, it is all about romance at the Caesars Pocono Resorts. There's still plenty to do outdoors for couples, though. Couples have access to activities like tennis, snowmobiling and tubing, volleyball, racquetball, and golf at the resort's nine-hole course.
