Originally a glasswork factory that was cut from bluestone in 1890, the Ledges Hotel has undergone a dramatic transformation in recent years, emerging with a minimalist design and serious eco-cred that goes hand-in-hand with the serene setting along Wallenpaupack Creek’s river gorge falls. The hotel’s aptly named Glass (denoted “Wine. Bar. Kitchen.”) cooks up fusion fare with over-the-edge outdoor seating and views of the nearby falls. Additional decks, a stone-fireplace Great Room and a walled-off, flowery sitting area offer plenty of private spots for cozying up with a book or glass of wine. Guestrooms are outfitted with specially designed Boyce furnishings, flat-screen TVs and low-slung beds with down pillows and comforters atop wooden platforms. And all bathrooms feature white washbasin sinks, rainfall showers, organic toiletries and Green Earth bamboo towels.
In the Area
Central Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains are peppered with nature preserves, game lands and wilderness paths, and one of the sure-bet hikes to tackle in this scenic region is the 3.5-mile trail through Shuman Point). While Hawley frames itself with Pike County’s natural beauty, real character comes from the German-esque town. Fall Points Restaurant dresses itself in natural woods and oak coloring, and its menu lists reimagined comfort foods such as premium pork chops with maple and balsamic. Quaint vibes aside, catch some artful culture at the Looking Glass Gallery’s showcased artists or post up at the Silk Mill’s Harmony Presents stage for local acts and mingle-friendly gazebo gatherings.
How to Get There
Hotel staff: The employees who work at the Ledges Hotel (and restaurant) are the friendliest people. Everyone we encountered was super pleasant, friendly and helpful (and not acting overly fake-nice because it's their job).
Location: The hotel is part of an old mill so it literally sits on the edge of a waterfall. Check out the multi- layered decks along the waterfall with chairs to just chill and take it all in.
Hawley is a quaint, small, Christmas-y town. Ledges is in the perfect location for this-- highly recommend the mile walk to town by taking the scenic route (the river trail). If you're feeling lazy, next to Ledges is another remodeled mill building which now has little shops--like a bakery and coffee shop.
Recommend: Going to the restaurant at the hotel-- the food is delicious! Also, stay for the live music on the weekends-- the performer I watched was really talented and takes requests!
Negative: I don't have many negative things to say about the hotel. Forewarning, the rooms are tiny and get chilly with the large windows, however, there is a really nice common room with tea, biscuits, a fireplace and comfy seating.
Also note: when I was reading reviews online people were saying you could see the falls from your room--not necessarily true-- I was on the first floor and could not see the falls, but did have a nice view of what appeared to be a stone, open outdoor venue with string lights.
My husband and I booked Ledges on a whim so we had a place to go after we got married. We were not disappointed. We stayed in 210 the king suite. We were welcomed by friendly staff who showed us all around and booked ua for dinner at Glass the first night. Our room had chocolates and cute notes from the hotel congratulating us on our wedding. The room had a living room, fully functional kitchen with stove, dishwasher, microwave, Keurig, and full fridge. The spiral staircase was a complete surprise. And we were in awe. Our room had a king size bed with the best sheets I've ever slept in. The shower had a rain faucet and was so relaxing. Speaking of relaxing, the jacuzzi tub was my favorite! And with beautiful views. We are planning on going back again ! Ps glass had the best food of our trip! Highly recommended!!
My Dad, a Vietnam Era Veteran, and my Mom spent a night at Ledges Hotel. This year I was sure to ask them to get photos of the falls from the deck and a fellow lodger was happy to help take some nice photos of them and give them permission to use them. It was a lovely experience for my parents and a well deserved break from the dog and me. I am so happy to hear them talk of watching the light snow fall from the window of their room and the great views of the falls from the porch. They enjoyed coffee and muffins for breakfast and the service of the staff was helpful and kind. The room was comfortable and nicely decorated. A nice way to spend Veterans' Day! Thank you!
I stayed in a queen room. Very comfortable bed and pillows. Everything was clean. The restaurant is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays so I went out for dinner. Everything was as it should be, there was no problem at all. I'll be back.
Just returned from an overnight re Veterans Appreciation...thank you so much for the wonderful escape. Ledges is a beautiful scenic welcoming place. The rooms are comfortable and upscale....so Zen.
We love it here and will be back. Continental breakfast is homemade pastry and breads from Hawley SilkMill...delish!
