A kids-free getaway to the Poconos is just about as dreamy as it gets. We know you love the kiddos, but sometimes mom and dad need to reconnect and reset. This kind of getaway probably doesn’t happen often, so make the most of your time together. If your mind is already in a state of serenity, but you still have some planning to do, check out these activities perfect for couples looking for a little adventure and a lot of relaxation.

Reconnect with Nature

Take in the scenic vistas and let the views of the rugged mountains sink in.

  • A quiet and easy trail hike
  • Archery Tag, also known as “dodgeball with bows and arrows.” 
  • Pick up a game of paddle tennis. 
  • Rent a two-seater kayak or canoe on the Delaware River.

  • Bushkill Falls located in The Delaware Water Gap. 
  • Swim in the lake. 
  • Mountaintop views at Big Pocono State Park.

Relax at the Spa

A pampering oasis nestled in the Pocono Mountains, The Nest is a peaceful haven for mind, body, and spirit. Treat yourself to a 55- or 85-minute couple’s massage. 

Embrace Your Inner Foodie

Sit back and let us do the cooking. Here, impeccable service and the idyllic setting heighten your dining experience, turning every meal shared into a cherished memory.
