Top 10 Romance Opportunities (In No Particular Order)
1. Hot chocolate on the Grand Veranda
The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort’s Grand Veranda provides a picturesque view of the gentle flowing Delaware River. In February, our front lawn is typically covered with a brilliant layer of virgin white snow enhancing our rocking chair winter’s view. The brisk winter weather will draw you near your loved one. Our Hot Chocolate and complimentary blanket serve to keep you warm.
Dim lighting, aroma therapy, essential oils, and your loved one beside you. Pre-order chocolate covered strawberries and a bottle of champagne and voila – you have all of the ingredients to reignite that flame. Not to mention that your body, whether you receive a scrub, facial, hydrotherapy or massage, will be completely reinvigorated and ready to fully embrace your love.
3. Get your Heart Pumping on the Appalachian
Located in the Delaware Water Gap; the Appalachian Trail will get your heart pumping with a moderately challenging hike to the top of Mt. Minsi. Engage with your loved one and assist each other in the climb to the top. Once at the summit, before you will be a magnificent view of the Delaware Water Gap and Delaware River. The clarity of the mountain and challenge of the hike sow a bond between you and your partner that transcend life’s stresses.
4. Shawnee’s Concierge
What is romance? Everyone’s definition is different and our concierge is a master at helping our guests in planning their romantic getaway to the Shawnee Inn. Tailoring romance opportunities to the individual couple is what is important – that’s what makes it a concierge service. We are intimately familiar with the Shawnee Inn’s offerings along with other nearby romance opportunities.
5. Take a River Trip
The gentle flowing Delaware River, so pristine it is clear to the riverbed, is a wellspring of romance. And why not? Water is life, it is purity… Take a canoe trip for two – plan a romantic picnic on one of Shawnee’s private river islands. Bathe in, what feels like, your own private river in paradise. Find a secluded nook in nature and lounge the day away allowing the soft lappings of the Delaware River keep time for you.
6. Stroll the McDade
The 70,000 acre Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area is a cornucopia of romantic opportunities. There are literally hundreds of miles of secluded trails that serve as the perfect backdrop to your romantic afternoon. One highlight is the McDade Trail located only one mile from the Shawnee Inn. The McDade trail is a low impact activity that follows the Wild and Scenic Delaware River for 28 miles to Milford. Bask in nature and take in the views. There is no better way to just get outdoors and communicate with your love than through an easy stroll in nature.
7. Renew Your Vows
It is no secret that The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort is the perfect destination for your wedding… But make no mistake; you don’t have to get married again to express your devotion at Shawnee. A vow renewal at the Shawnee Inn is a unique way to proclaim your love to your partner in the company of many or few. Why not celebrate your passion with the grand Shawnee Inn as your backdrop?

9. Campfire and S’Mores
The scent of a campfire, melted chocolate and gooey marshmallows…. Dim lighting on the edge of the Delaware River, with your guest room only a moment’s walk across Shawnee’s Grand Lawn. Is there a better aphrodisiac? Offered almost daily, campfires at the Shawnee Inn are a sure way to light your fire.
10. Learn to Golf or Ski
Taking a plunge into the unknown is scary, exciting and exhilarating. Whether your relationship is new or shared for decades, there is nothing like that feeling. Butterflies.
