Take a Winter Break at a Pocono Resort

Go Ahead. Get Snowed In.

Experience the true magic of winter in the Poconos.

The quiet woods welcome a much-needed, post-holiday tranquility. Tree branches, burdened with ice and snow, shimmer through the low light of the sun. Cold, clear streams swirl like ribbons of black silk through the landscape. It’s no wonder artists and writers have been drawn to this place throughout history.

We get it. Many people want to be whisked away to somewhere warm for the winter. But traffic and air travel can be unpredictable this time of year. At a Poconos resort, you can get away without really getting away.

Restart and recharge. Treat yourself to a well-deserved, cozy winter retreat. You look like you could go for a little pampering, or maybe a long soak in the hot tub. Of course, you don’t even have to leave your ridiculously cozy room. It’s your call. Hang out in your robe and ring for room service, or stroll on down to the resort’s locally-renowned restaurant.

And, if you’re feeling even a little of that inevitable cabin fever, just remember, the Poconos are Northeastern Pennsylvania’s winter playground. There’s just so many fun things to do.


Hit the Slopes!

The Poconos are famous for their amazing ski slopes. All winter long, families come together for long ski weekends. From snowboarding and snow tubing to daring double black diamond runs, a Pocono ski adventure will have you hooked on winter.

Make it a Fun Foodie Getaway

As much as they are known for their fantastic amenities, Pocono resorts are also pretty famous for their restaurants. You can get dressed up and dine in style, or chill out at the bar with a beer and a burger. And if you’re really comfortable, stay in bed and order a little room service. We’re not judging.

And with so many quaint towns all around, you’re only a short drive from classic greasy spoons, healthy alternatives, and iconic Pocono favorites.
