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
My husband and I enjoyed our little getaway at the Ledges Hotel. Our arrival was met by a frazzled front desk employee but after we were taken to our room, it was a relaxing few days. The restaurant and bar was a pleasant surprise and they were able to give us a table even though the front desk did not make our reservation. Jennifer was an excellent server as well as drink maker. The singer that night was very enjoyable and the bar area very cozy.
Would never come back. Management is irresponsible and rude. It is hit or miss if you get someone who shouldn't be allowed of the house or an angel. But the bad absolutely out weigh the good. It's on a beautiful property but parking is inconvenient and borderline dangerous. We had our wedding here and we got double booked and were forced to concede for the larger wedding despite our booking months earlier. The restaurant downstairs has good food but prepare to wait. Also, if you are seated in the bar area, the tables are knee high and the dining room has a view opposite the falls, so don't bother sitting there. Josie was a star but that was about where the good at Glass stopped. Cocoon, the coffeehouse, has good food but do not trust the bakery for any cake that you have special expectations for. They aren't very good and look like middle school birthday cakes. The rooms in ledges are dated and congested. Our front door barely stayed shut. I would suggest any where but ledges. Please, I'm really understating my disappointment here, go to silver birches or wood loch if your staying, and for a good meal see Jamie at Fairview Cafe!
The Ledges was a great place to stay. Beautiful clean and best of all pet friendly. They had bowls treats and a toy for my Jack Russell. High end bath towels and bed sheets. Barbara at the front desk friendly pleasant always looking to accommodate us. Lovely restaurant downstairs
