Fall is in the Air
The Delaware Highlands region comes alive in the fall. Clean crisp air blends with beautiful blue skies and the fall foliage is truly vibrant and energizing. This year the season will be particularly lush as the gift of summer rain keeps rivers and streams full and waterfalls cascading. Paddle the Delaware and spot an eagle soaring overhead. Hike to the waterfalls, bike along the meandering Lackawaxen River…and plan to spend time at The Settlers Inn.

Annual Victorian Christmas Returns to the Inn

Victorian Christmas December 1-3

  • Horse and carriage rides in Bingham Park, complete with a footman to assist.
  • Mulled wine, champagne, and hors d’oeuvres by the fireplace
  • Elaborate holiday menu prepared and served as it would have been in the early 1900’s at an elegant country estate
  • Festive dessert table with a choice for all the twelve days of Christmas.
  • St. John’s Christmas Choir blends the sounds of the season with the magic of candlelight and evergreens

We will begin taking reservations for this magical holiday tradition on Monday, September 11 at 8:00 am! Join us December 1-3 as we transform The Settlers Inn into a Victorian Country Lodge and turn back the hands of time to an era of style and grace.

A holiday transformation
Preparations begin a week in advance as we deck the halls with evergreens and trim Christmas trees. We polish the silver, press the tablecloths, bake the breads, simmer the stocks, hang the wreaths, and bake a perfect replica of The Settlers Inn – all in gingerbread.

Catch the seasonal spirit
Don’t miss this opportunity to come and experience a Christmas of yesteryear. We guarantee you will leave with a heart full of holiday cheer.

Make your reservations early – this event sells out fast!
The phone lines open at 8:00 a.m. EST on September 11. Cost is $100 per person, which includes tax and gratuity

Two Dinner Seatings:
Early: 6:00 or 6:30
Late: 8:30 or 9:00


Annual Harvest and Storytelling Dinner
October 28
Gathering time: 6:00, Dinner 6:30
Cost: $56 per person, tax and gratuity included.

Every year the talented crew at The Settlers Inn turns pumpkin carving into an art form. This year the pumpkins will be on display for our annual storytelling dinner on October 28. Feast on traditional American harvest fare, such as turkey, squash and other Autumn delights. Be on the lookout for the complete menu in our October newsletter. Stories are told through song – traditional ballads and melodies – provided by Nelly Gray and her Darlings, an eight-piece group of fiddles, banjoes, guitar, and vocals.
