Once more her strained gaze sought the sage-slopes. Jane Withersteen loved that wild and purple wilderness.

Offered both Saturday and Sunday, it has quickly become a new classic and weekend favorite for many. The sunny dining room is a welcome respite from the outdoors with it’s slushy melting snow.

The Settlers Inn is delighted to welcome Shawnee Craft to the inn for a special beer and food pairing dinner on February 21. The Genzlinger and Kirkwood families have much in common, the love of the Arts and Crafts style, a commitment to sustainability and a passion for craft beers. It is a natural to combine our efforts to feature “Food from here and Beer from near”.
February 2 does not have to be spent in front of a television watching the most sought after football game of the year. It would not be unAmerican to just say no to chips and salsa, pretzels and beer. You can actually get away from all of that – likely by yourself because no one will want to go with you. So what’s wrong with a little alone time?
Celtic Beer Dinner, St. Patrick’s Eve at Cocoon and Harmony Presents, and Vernal Equinox Dinner will keep you entertained all month!
