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
I've been looking at Ledges for a little while and was so glad that it was available for our Anniversary weekend this year. It is a very cute little place. Sitting on the decks by the waterfall was so relaxing and the little side nook that was semi-private was also nice if you wanted to be outside to relax, but not be surrounded by everyone.
The floors are VERY LOUD. There must have been a family above us because it sounded like children running around, especially in the morning. Plus I could hear every footstep of everyone walking down the hallways.
The pastries for breakfast were a nice touch. We don't eat large breakfasts so it was nice to grab some coffee and a pastry and sit by the waterfalls. However, I did make the suggestion to include some kind of juice for those that don't drink coffee or tea. My husband was a little annoyed that he didn't have anything to drink with breakfast. We saw the cutest duck family playing in the falls one morning.
Another suggestion was to include some kind of creamer for coffee throughout the rest of the day. In the morning there is a carafe of hot coffee and regular creamer available. The rest of the day is instant coffee and no creamer. A powered creamer or the room-table liquid single servings would have been helpful. However, the tea offering was amazing, Strong and flavorful.
We didn't eat at Glass, even though I wanted to, my husband is very picky and he didn't see anything on the menu that looked appealing to him or had the potential to be 'plain' enough. That said, we had a lovely dinner on the deck over at 'The Dock' that is run by the same management company.
We walked through the Silk Mill shops, a bunch of cute little boutiques in there.
Definitely enjoyed our visit and would visit in the future.
This hotel is part of an old mill complex that was renovated. Drinks by the waterfall are fantastic. The hotel offers day passes to a lakefront "club" where you can swim, rent paddleboards etc. The front desk was very helpful.
A fantastic room, fantastic place, clean, served a continental breakfast with beautiful views of the waterfall from our windows. Nice people. Local attractions and things to do such as the Silk Mill shops, Wallenpaupack Brewery, lake Wallenpaupack walk, Monday night Dockside Pizza and Margharita specials, Coras Restaurant.... We wished we could stay longer and hope to go back. Thank you for making our anniversary so much fun!
We just arrived home from our weekend stay at the Ledges Hotel. It was a great friendly place! Everyone was extremely friendly from the front desk staff to the bartender and even Rob the musician that evening gave us great tips of the area. We will definitely return next year!
The drinks and food at Glass were great and just as we like to eat. Lots of shared plates and great variety on menu.
Although our room was a bit on the smaller side, it was clean and the bathroom was nice.
The scenery was just beautiful and we cannot wait to return.
Three of us friends stayed overnight at the ledges hotel and had a great time. We stayed in a suite with two queen size bedrooms and a bath and half. This would not be suitable for people with handicap issues as the only way to get to the bedrooms and the full bath is up a circular metal stair way.That being said, the three of us we are in our 60s and 70s and had no trouble navigating them. There are rooms on the first floor that would be more suitable. The staff is polite and friendly and the visitors lounge is spacious, sunny, and has a gas fireplace and a game table. A continental breakfast is served there every morning consisting of big goods and some cheese. There is coffee available in the morning and hot teas to choose from in the evening.The main draw is the area outside the hotel. There are three decks of various heights that overlook the ravine of waterfalls with Comfortable chairs, tables and umbrellas. Nearby there is a fire pit. , when we were there the water was trickling down the ledges but would be impressive after a rainy period. The hotel,which is located half way down the ravine, is quiet and peaceful and the surrounding area is quite beautiful. There are plenty of things to do in the area but if you want to just get away, take a book because this is a great place to relax!
