When you step into The Settlers Inn, you’ll immediately be aware of your
woodsy setting. Designed with hardwood floors and fireplaces, housing
such spaces as an OpenTable’s Diners’ Choice 2015 farm-to-table
restaurant, the bed-and-breakfast is perfectly suited for its Poconos
surroundings. On top of the bucolic atmosphere, the property has elected
to bring itself even greener, observing various environmentally
friendly practices – management supports local conservation efforts, and
there are Tesla charging stations for compatible cars.
But it’s the secluded location, right on the Lackawaxen River, that makes the Wine Spectator
Award of Excellence and TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winning
getaway feel at one with nature. Guests can walk for miles – or cycle,
using one of the bikes on the front porch – and never tire of the
stunning views and wildlife. Nearby Shuman’s Point offers great hiking,
and the area meadows make for prime horseback-riding terrain, rounding
off the many rustic offerings – so grab a book, pick your bike and
settle inn. Ahem, in.
The warm, inviting guest rooms of The Settlers Inn
are inspired by the surrounding Pocono Mountains; naturalistic design
appears in details like the wallpaper, art and bedding. Palettes are
neutral and warm, creating a relaxing space to start and end your days
during your stay, as do hardwood surfaces and leather furnishings. Enjoy
a queen bed in your individually decorated Standard Queen room, as well
as thoughtful luxuries like a microfiber robe and flat-screen cable LCD
of OpenTable’s Diners’ Choice 2015, Pocono Restaurant is a go-to dining
destination for romantic meals or special occasions. Chef Ben Sutter’s
creative use of local ingredients results in a delicious menu that
changes with the seasons, and an award-winning wine list and extensive
beer menu ensure your meal will be paired with the perfect beverage.
Breakfast, brunch, tavern and dinner menus include dishes like Chilled
Blueberry Ginger Soup, Tea Smoked Chicken and a warm apple crepe with
cranberry compote for dessert.
Set in the
heart of the Pocono Mountains and perched on Lackawaxen River, The
Settlers Inn puts sightseeing, outdoor adventure and local Hawley
attractions right at your fingertips. Explore the specialty shops,
antique stores and variety of activities in charming Hawley, or head out
for a round of golf; experience the great outdoors by boating, fishing,
kayaking or strolling the waterside trails. And there’s plenty to see,
as well as do – not just the Lackawaxen River or Lake Wallenpaupack,
which are scenic on their own, but the diverse birds, including eagles,
that call the Poconos home.
How to Get There
My wife and I stayed here for a few days of R&R before the 7/4 holiday and were very pleased!!! The property is very quaint and comfortable! Feels very historic, very different from a brand named hotel but at least as nice. Comfortable lobby, shaded porches, lots of nice greenery and flowers to see everywhere! Our room was also very comfortable. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent. This wine tasting is another very nice added-value. One evening featured live jazz outside. We also enjoyed the amenities of the sister properties and nearby walking paths!
We loved our stay here! The rooms are big with nice bathrooms. The sheets are so nice that we bought some. They advertise them in the stairway! The lobby is so neat, and we enjoyed a late night cocktail from the bar there. Breakfast is included each morning, and it is very nice off the full menu in the restaurant. The staff in the lobby is so friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this place!
Beautiful surroundings and great service. Huge wine and cocktail selection. This is a place to celebrate any special occasion. The menu is farm to table and it changes seasonally. The local smoked rainbow trout is a regular feature and even non fish lovers will enjoy it!
We always came to Settlers during the winter holiday season for our anniversary and loved it, so we decided to try a spring getaway to see what it would be like. We stayed for 2 nights in the most beautiful spacious room overlooking the garden & river. Although the weather wasn't the greatest we made the best of it by enjoying daily wine tastings on the covered front porch. Many thanks to all of the staff who always make us feel so special and welcome. Needless to say we are now thinking of making this spring getaway a new tradition & possibly booking getaways for all 4 seasons.
We went for one night and when we checked in Terry at the desk could not be nicer and took us up the our nice room that had chocolates and a card on the bed. They include breakfast which the pancakes were one of the best I ever had. At night we went to the sister hotel Ledges to eat dinner at Glass. Food was phenomenal small plates. We sat outside overlooking the waterfalls . We went to the town Honesdale which was a 10 min away drive . It was cute to walk around. This place is nice quiet overnight for couples.
