Romantic Poconos Resorts for Couples | Fun Getaways for Couples in the Pennsylvania Mountains

Whether you are looking for a cozy hideout in the woods with your own fireplace, an iconic heart-shaped hot tub, or just a fun getaway near the slopes, here are the most romantic Poconos resorts for couples.

We walk out the back entrance of Hotel Fauchère and follow the streets down to the banks of the Delaware River, where we can see across the blue water to New Jersey on the other side. On the way back, hotel owner Sean Strub points out the “blue bridge” which connects to the Appalachian trail. He’s my tour guide and also happens to be the town mayor, and is helping me plan a romantic weekend in the Poconos with my boyfriend.

Strub also suggests hiking Raymondskill Falls, a waterfall three miles from the hotel, and visiting Grey Towers, a historic 19th century mansion and the birthplace of the American Conservation Movement. We duck into a few of Milford’s antique shops and small galleries on the way to Columns Museum. On the way back, we stop at 403 Broad, for coffee, which is also owned by the hotel and right next door.

The next morning, after a great night’s sleep, I walk down to breakfast on the first floor in The Delmonico Room, a stunning, formal dining room with white table cloths and a portrait of Fauchère, himself. It includes grapefruit brulee, assorted mini-pastries, house-made yogurt, granola and fresh fruit juices. I eat in the glassed-in sun room and think about my upcoming romantic getaway with my boyfriend.

Relax at a Destination Spa Resort in the Woods

The Lodge at Woodloch is an all-inclusive wellness spa for couples, who want a relaxing getaway with top-notch service.

Come for a memorable weekend in the woods and prepare to be pampered. Located on over 500 private acres, surrounded by fern carpeted woodlands, its an ideal place to breathe in fresh air, walk the trails, see the lake, and soak in the outdoor hot tub.

From the moment you arrive, you’ll notice the impeccable service, which is met by high-end comfort. Couples walk to and from the spa in their robes and slippers, lounging in the common rooms, drinking crystal-infused water and wellness teas, while snacking on homemade treats from the kitchen. The Lodge offers dozens of art, yoga, wellness and fitness classes.

Activities include: chakra meditation, cardio and toning, cooking demonstrations, painting, aqua toning in the pool, drumming, sound baths, tea classes, mindful eating, chi gong, wine tasting, ice fishing and drawing. In the warmer months couples can enjoy disc golf, biking, bocce on the lawn, kayaking, sailing, tennis, water skiing and boating.

Meals and classes are all included and tipping is not allowed, so leave your wallet in the room and feel free to try any, and all, activities. The Spa, which occupies one full wing of the Lodge, contains pools with hydro-massage waterfalls, steam rooms and saunas, as well as multiple rooms with daybeds and spectacular views of the lake. Some spa treatments are extra, depending on which package you book.

The spectacular Tree restaurant, with floor-to-ceiling windows, serves organic and seasonally based meals. For breakfast try the spa powerbowl — overnight oats with flaxseed and berries — and for dinner, choose from salmon, trout, steak and lobster risotto. On your last day, ask for the “picnic basket” lunch for two, which you can eat on your drive home.

The spacious, luxurious and comfy deluxe rooms feature marble bathrooms with double granite sinks and bedding so soft you’ll sleep late. Junior suites have an additional sitting room and full suites come with a living room.

Old-World, French Charm and Romance in a Historic Town

Hotel Fauchère is located in quaint, historic Milford, the northern gateway to the Poconos and only 75 miles from New York City. Hotel Fauchère’s owner, Sean Strub, has great recommendations of where to go and what to see. Ask for one of the rooms on the second floor with a balcony.

The hotel, which is located downtown, is named after Louis Fauchère, a French master chef, who cooked at Manhattan’s famous Delmonico restaurant before opening the hotel as a summer retreat in 1852. It’s a beautifully preserved pristine white building with black shutters. Inside you’ll find antique furniture, dark wood floors, Hudson River School landscape paintings on the walls, and the chic decor of an elegant French country inn. Couples come here for a romantic stay and to see Milford and the surrounding areas.

Over the years a number of celebrities, writers and politicians have visited including: Charlie Chaplin, John F. Kennedy, Mae West, Frank McCourt, Henry Ford, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Babe Ruth. Their black and white portraits hang in the hotel’s stairwell leading down to the Bar Louis restaurant.

Bar Louis serves as an excellent dinner. Choose from French inspired dishes like oysters fauchère, salade lyonnaise, steak frites or order something entirely different: the classic sushi pizza. Large black and white photos of 80’s legends John Lennon, Andy Warhol, Liza Minnelli and Liz Taylor adorn the walls and serve as the backdrop to this festive, local gathering spot. Try the signature cocktail, Solstice Margarita, and poached pear or the decadent, dark chocolate pot de creme for dessert.
