Charming & Traditional

Activities here at The Settlers Inn take advantage of the property’s scenic grounds, thriving gardens and rich history. Experience a Canal Walk on Mondays. The guided tour explores the remnants of the D & H Canal that are located on the grounds. During summer and fall, Fridays bring a guided Trail Walk, while an English Garden Tour on Saturdays offers the opportunity to explore the Inn’s lovely manicured gardens in-depth. The lawn overlooking the gardens is the setting for yoga on Saturday mornings during warmer weather. The riverside fire pit is the place to be on Monday evening for S’mores- a beloved summertime tradition. Daily Wine Tastings let you sample vintages from the restaurant’s award-winning wine list while you learn more about the diverse world of wine. The Settlers Inn is known for its farm-to-table restaurant. Enjoy an extraordinary meal and live entertainment during Jazz on the Deck every Wednesday throughout summer or live piano music on Saturdays. Cold-weather activities at The Settlers Inn tap into the wealth of history and flavors cultivated here. Enjoy mocktail and coffee tastings or find a place at the fireside history chats, which include a Chef’s Tasting.

Waterfront & Wonderfulrent paddle boards

Our sister property, Silver Birches, is located right on Lake Wallenpaupack. When you stay at The Settlers Inn during summer and fall, you can visit the Recreation Center any day of the week and take out one of the resort’s kayaks, SUPs or canoes. Group SUP sessions are offered on Mondays and on Wednesdays, join a group kayak lesson. Other summertime wellness activities include lakeside yoga on Tuesdays and aqua Zumba on Thursdays. Every evening throughout the year, we raise a glass to a day on the lake with a special Sunset Champagne Toast. All that fresh air works up an appetite, so there’s a picnic every Tuesday at noon during summer. On Thursday evenings, find a spot by the lakeside fire pit and indulge in s’mores. From Memorial Day through Columbus Day, Sunday’s Lakeside Live brings entertainment to The Deck at The Dock on Wallenpaupack, the resort’s restaurant. Activities move inside during winter when you can take part in Wednesdays Book Swap or challenge yourself during PubOlympics on Thursday.

Take some time to visit Ledges Hotel during your Pocono Mountains getaway. The glass factory turned boutique hotel has a cool contemporary atmosphere and views not found anywhere else in Hawley. On Tuesdays in summer, join in a guided River Walk here and a yoga session every Sunday morning is held on the outdoor decks overlooking Paupack High Falls in warmer months. There are also daily cocktail tastings as well as live entertainment events such as Blues, Brews and BBQ every Sunday from Memorial Day through the end of August. Winter and spring bring the opportunities to hike or snowshoe along the River Walk Trail. Then, warm up with a fireside history chat along with chef’s tasting.
