April Newsletter 2010

Seems Punxsutawney Phil was wrong! Spring has sprung early this year at The Settlers Inn. Flowers are bursting through the ground and the trees have moved past budding to full-blown leaves. Celebrate this glorious season of renewal in a Delaware Highlands town that is in the midst of renewal itself.

Things are growing and expanding here in Hawley, PA. The Hawley Silk Mill and downtown revitalization projects are steaming forward. At the Inn, hundreds of lovingly-tended tulips are lending their luscious wash of color to our exquisitely landscaped gardens. Mother's Day is just around the corner, The Settlers Inn Team recently opened a cozy new coffee shop, and sommelier Leslie Chappell-Britt is planning an exciting new weekly wine feature.

Read on for all the details!

New! Coccon Coffee House
New! Coccon Coffee HouseWe quietly opened the doors to our new coffee house in February. But now, the menus are done, the website is live, the beans are roasting, and we are celebrating this week (April 12-18) with a grand opening. Come visit and join in the fun.

Located on the grounds of the Hawley Silk Mill, Cocoon Coffee House is a great new gathering spot in the heart of town. Still the largest laid bluestone building in the world, the silk mill is currently being refurbished and is playing a key part in Hawley's renaissance. In fact, Lackawanna College will occupy a floor.

Nestled in front of the massive structure sits an adorable little building that once sheltered the cocoons that supplied the silk. In fact, in 1894, it held $175,000 worth of cocoons (more than the value of the entire mill)! Today, it is the home of the coffee house, which proudly carries on the legacy in its name.

Lackawaxen - River of the YearLackawaxen - River of the Year
Named the 2010 River of the Year by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, the Lackawaxen offers so much – and flows right through our back yard.

A mecca for birders hoping to glimpse abundant bald eagles, and trout fishermen drawn to its clean, cold waters, the Lackawaxen River flows nearly 25 miles through three counties before joining the Delaware River at Lackawaxen, Pike County. April is opening of trout season, and the Lackawaxen can't be beat for angling. Fish right from the inn's shores, or our front desk can arrange for a fly fishing excursion with local guide, John Appert.

Working in HaitiWorking in Haiti
Jeanne and Grant's daughters, Carrie and Janna, have just returned from 12 days working on the ground in Haiti. They worked with the relief organization, Hands On Disaster Response to construct temporary housing. "It was a great experience - I was honored to be lucky enough to be a part of such a wonderful organization and to keep company with the amazing group of volunteers on this project.  I feel like I got so much more than I gave.” Everyone at The Settlers Inn is very proud of them!
