How to Spend a Long Weekend: The Ultimate 3-Day Pocono Itinerary

Day 1


Wake up as slowly (or quickly) as you’d like when you book our all-inclusive Executive Package or one of the packages mentioned above. Enjoy a complimentary breakfast in bed, or choose to dine in our stunning dining room. Have the ease of early check-in, and take your time getting comfortable in your room.


The Poconos is a beautiful place year-round. Celebrate the season (whether it is Spring, Summer, Fall, or Winter) with a special event, French Manor style. 

Plan a day at the spa and enjoy a seasonal spa special like our “Love is in The Air” couples massage. You may prefer one of our signature treatments, such as the “Huckleberry Mountain Signature Spa Facial” or another fabulous facial.

If you’re an outdoor enthusiast, you’ll want to lace up for an afternoon of exploring the great Pocono Mountains. Follow our list of the best Pocono hiking trails and dive into the wilderness. Yoga with a View is a great way to prepare for your day of trailblazing and best of all—it’s free for French Manor guests! 


Come back to a romantic dinner in the comforts of our elegant dining room. Indulge in classic French cuisine by Chef Keegan and finish it off with a decadent dessert. The dining room boasts two beautifully stoned fireplaces, high-vaulted ceilings, and unparalleled mountain views.
