Are you looking for a romantic getaway destination for Valentine’s Day? Come to beautiful Lake Harmony in the Pocono Mountains! Read on to see how to plan a romantic escape filled with fun Valentine’s Day Lake Harmony activities and events.
One of the top romantic activities for you and your partner to do during a Valentine’s Day weekend in Lake Harmony is to go to the charming and small mountain town of Blakeslee. This incredible mountain town is located right in the heart of the Pocono Mountains, providing you with a quiet and serene afternoon away from the hustle and bustle of city and ski-town life.
We recommend visiting the 130-acre Blakeslee Natural area to go hiking, nature walking, or bird hatching in the lush green pine forest. This is a great way to get out in nature, see the local flora and fauna, and do so without breaking a sweat.
We also recommend going to the similar Thomas Darling Preserve to wander around the breathtaking 2,500-acre reserve, featuring miles and miles of tracks, protected areas, towering trees, and lush greenery. Make sure you bring your camera to take a few pictures of the spruce forests, Burger Road walkway, and birds chirping in the trees.
Check Out Tobyhanna
Another great little town to check out during your stay in Lake Harmony is the Tobyhanna shopping, hiking, and town area. This cute spot is great for going hiking for hours on end, eating an al fresco healthy lunch with your date, and choosing a few drinks and bites to purchase at the nearby cafe to eat in the bright winter sunshine.
Grab Dinner at Bar Louie at the Hotel Fauchere
There is nowhere better to have specialty cocktails, check out a new town, and chat with the knowledgeable staff than the Hotel FAuchere. This upscale dining establishment is currently open for dinner service until 9 pm most days of the week, so you can head here any day leading up to V-Day for a tasty meal and upscale vibes.
Not sure what to order? Try ordering from the Modern French menu specialty made by the chef, Luis Fauchere, who uses seasonal cuisine, local ingredients, and modern twists on the typical French dishes you see in European restaurants.
Start with the delectable French Onion Soup with caramelized onion and apples. Then, share the Escargot Provencal with mushroom bread dumplings, confit tomatoes, and Persillade compose. Or, if you want another type of seafood, you can’t go wrong with splitting the Sushi Pizza with tuna crudo, corps sushi rice, and Thai basil.
As a main dish, the choices are so tough to narrow down and choose your favorite. For seafood lovers, the Lobster Fauchere with English Peas, pearl onions, black veneer rice, and carrot crisp is to die for. And for meat lovers, the Cedar Farms Prime Strip Steak with young vegetables, Dauphinoise potatoes, and bone marrow is a melt-in-your-mouth creation.
Visit the Tranquil Moments of the Poconos
Are you feeling a bit sore and tight after going skiing all day yesterday? Maybe it was your first day sleeping this ski season, so your legs are screaming, and your back is tired. In this case, a message seems like the best way to recover and hit the slopes again tomorrow on a sunny and brisk winter day.
For couples who want to be healthy and wholesome together, we can’t think of anything better than visiting a massage therapist to get a couple’s massage and a facial. Check out the Tranquil Moments of the Poconos in Blakeslee to work out any knots and get back to your best in just one session.
We recommend getting the Pumpkin Pamper Package if you have it here in the fall season, including a Swedish massage with pumpkin spice massage oil, foot scrub, and Moroccan oil hair treatment. They even use hot stones to get deeper into your muscles for additional relaxation. Or, try the full body red wine body scrub treatment with mylar body wrap to exfoliate your skin and get rid of dry particles.
Check Out the Local Art Scene
There is so much art and culture in the little town of Lake Harmony that we aren’t surprised you want to visit an art gallery or two during your stay here. The Morgan Gallery of Fine Arts in Blakeslee is a small, independently run gallery that offers pristine paintings, sculptures, and much more that are great for last-minute gifts.
Or head to Red Run art gallery in Pocono Pines to see some unique artistic pieces and chat with the owner and artists themselves. We also think you should make time for the Patiri Art Image Designers in Pocono Lake to pick up some last-minute gifts and see the talents of local artists and sculptors.
