A Beautifully Restored Arts & Crafts Lodge

July Newsletter 2011

The Pocono Mountains and the inn grounds come alive in the fall. Our gardens are still gorgeous. Clean, crisp air blends with beautiful blue skies. Foliage energizes the entire Delaware Highlands in a vibrant display.

This autumn will be particularly lush as the downpours from Irene and Lee have swollen rivers, streams and, especially - waterfalls - to rushing, gushing, plunging beauty.

So many fun events and activities happen in and around Hawley during September and October. Of particular note is our fabulous Oktoberfest Beer Dinner on Friday October 14. Read on for the details. We look forward to welcoming you and the brilliant new season here at The Settlers Inn.

Australian Wine Dinner -Sommelier Claude BriereAustralian Wine Dinner
September 23 I $85 per person

We are delighted to welcome back Sommelier Claude Briere - who is traveling all the way from Amsterdam! - to preside over this "do from down under." No longer a country of cute little "critter" wines, Australia has a few heavy hitters that pair so well with our regional farm-to-table philosophy. Claude will be offering some amazing Australian wines from our cellar.

Call 570-226-2993 now to book. Claude's presence will make this a quick sell-out!

Reserve for the HolidaysReserve for the Holidays
Reservations will officially begin TODAY - Tuesday, September 13 - for our annual Victorian Christmas celebration. Don't miss out on our most popular event of the year on Friday, December 2 or Saturday, December 3. Our Arts and Crafts Lodge really lends itself to all the finery and nostalgia of an old fashioned Christmas. We take great care in the hanging of the greens, baking the gingerbread house, and cooking for a week to prepare!

Nothing rings in the holidays like choirs, candlelight and the warmth of the fireplace. Stay at the inn, and hope for snow!

Escape to the WaterOktoberfest Beer Dinner

We'll sample Stoudt's Oktoberfest beer along with the Gold Lager, German Pilsner and Pale Ale.

Special 2011 September Package - Good Night and Goodbye Irene
Special 2011 September Package - Good Night and Goodbye Irene

The Settlers Inn ducked the worst of Irene and benefited from the best. Rain swelled the local waterfalls to their maximum - and the deluge is delightful. Stay two nights midweek (Sun – Thurs) and get the second night free. Or, stay longer for half off the entire stay.

Plan to take our waterfall tour and see the cascading abundance for yourself.

*September 12 through the 29. New reservations only.
