Signs of spring are all around us, and we’re not just talking about that extra hour of lovely light we can enjoy each evening. A dozen robins rested in the crab apple trees in The Inn’s backyard recently, feasting on the lingering fruits of last fall.

The sight was so inspiring, Inn Proprietor Jeanne Genzlinger decided to blog about it! Be sure to check out the new Settlers Inn blog for the latest on what’s up at the Inn.

Speaking of inspiring… the melting snow is filling our region’s abundant creeks and streams with fresh water, which flows over the prominent cliffs and ridges of the local landscape to the Wild and Scenic Upper Delaware River. It’s the perfect time to visit one of the many dynamic waterfalls that accent our area’s lush forests and rocky terrain.

So, check out our Wonderful Waterfall Tour on The Inn’s website, and check in to The Settlers for your spring awakening!

Easter Arrives Early
Don’t forget to join us for Easter Dinner on Sunday, March 23 from Noon - 6 PM! The Inn’s exquisite seasonal décor and the soothing sounds of pianist Frank Williams will provide a fitting backdrop for enjoying delightful dishes like spring pea flan with fava greens salad and carrot vinaigrette, crab salad over roasted pineapple wedge, lemon thyme glazed Cornish game hen, or rosemary and mustard crusted leg of lamb with red wine jus. Reservations fill up quickly; make yours online today at OpenTable.com.

How Sweet It Is

Waterfalls aren’t the only natural wonders that are flowing this month. Sap will soon be coursing from maple trees at Journey’s End Farm, the certified organic family farm where The Inn gets its maple syrup. In fact, Inn Proprietor and Executive Chef Grant Genzlinger will serve up a divine maple glazed spring rack of lamb in honor of the season.

If you’ve ever wondered just how that yummy syrup gets from the trees to your taste buds, stop by Journey’s End Farm in nearby Newfoundland on Thursday, March 20 for a “Maple Sugaring Field Day” sponsored by the Pennsylvania Women’s Agricultural Network. Our good friend Kristin Curtis will show you the sugaring process from gathering sap to boiling syrup. She’ll also give a tour of Journey's End Farm Camp, a historic family operation started in 1939, which hosts boys and girls, ages 7 to 12, every summer. Cost for the Field Day is $15. To register, email lsm9@psu.edu or call 814-865-7031.


Save Land, Save the Date!
The Delaware Highlands Conservancy—our local land trust—recently achieved its goal of protecting 10,000 acres by 2007. In celebration, The Settlers Inn will host “Foods of the Delaware Highlands”—a 5-course dinner and wine tasting—on Saturday, April 26. Wine tasting with sommelier Claude Briere begins at 6:30 PM, followed by dinner at 7 PM.
