February Newsletter 2009
Winter’s chill is adding its crisp accent to the fresh Pocono Mountain air, and our guests are enjoying every minute of it here at The Settlers Inn. The amazingly beautiful outdoors offers ski slopes with piles or fresh powder, and woodland trails perfect for snowshoeing, cross country skiing or a quiet walk. Inside, our Chestnut Tavern and adjoining great room are aglow with the embers of a crackling fire.

Now is the perfect time for a restful winter getaway. Let your cares drift away as you rejuvenate in one of our Jacuzzi tubs or wrap yourself in one of our down comforters. Book Online today to reserve your room, and snuggle up with the one you love!
