Welcome to the Poconos

Whether you’re searching for the best family vacations or weekend getaways for couples; you’ll be head over hills for the Poconos!

Once upon a time, long before Tastykakes and the Internet were invented, the Poconos majestically rose up under our feet. People and pets have been coming from the city and the boonies just to spend time in our northeastern Pennsylvania wonderland.

Here in the Poconos, you can do just about everything. You can relax – or race. You can roll down the river – or roll the dice at a casino. Just pick a verb: chill, escape, relax, romance, fish, hike, golf, shop, wed, party, gamble, float, glide, slip ‘n slide, paddle, row, ski, race, or spectate. You can even work if you must. We have great spaces for conferences. In the Poconos, you can do whatever you want.

Poco-­Knows: The area covers four counties: Wayne, Pike, Monroe, and Carbon. It’s 2,400 sq. miles and more than 340,000 people live in the Poconos year-­‐round. It would take about 2 hours to drive from the Southern most point to the Northern most point of the Poconos.

The World's Longest Honeymoon Begins...

The World's Longest Honeymoon Begins...
Where did the world's longest honeymoon begin?  The Poconos! We traveled for 675-days to 33 countries and 302 places on our HoneyTrek but while we saved and planned for this epic honeymoon, we needed a mini-moon to tied us over and Milford was just the place!  Even though as a California girl I had visions of the Poconos’ 1970s champagne coup bathtubs and vibrating heart-shape beds, my new Pennsylvanian hubby assured me there were great getaways in these mountains. I Googled “Relais & Châteaux, PA” in hopes that this global boutique hotel network would have a location in the Keystone state and lucky us...we found out they have two properties in the region and Milford’s Hotel Fauchère happens to be one of them.

Have you ever visited a place that you never wanted to leave? Be careful what you wish for…

Do you believe in ghosts? Whether you do or you don’t, there are certainly some strange happenings that beg for an explanation, especially at The Wayne Hotel in Honesdale, PA.


Originally Hotel Wayne, it was built in 1827 as the first public house by Charles Forbes. The 2-story wood frame building was redone in brick in 1895. The hotel served the managers and executives of the D&H Canal as well as stage coach travelers.
