How quickly the seasons change. You will find our Pocono Mountains have put on their fall glory colors to delight and amaze you. Here at the inn, our gardens are ablaze with beautiful mum plantings from Les, a local grower In Bethany. This is a fabulous time to visit and spend time outdoors hiking our trails or cycling along our quiet back roads.
We celebrate autumn's bounty with our partner farmers and create menus that bring their best efforts to you. We truly appreciate how hard they work to grace our tables with their harvest. We also comb the countryside in search of the perfect pumpkins for our Storytelling Dinner. We go weekly to Rickard's, our local Cider Mill and bring back the best selection of Fall apples and locally pressed cider. And, we highlight the beers of the season in our Tavern. Our favorite pick this year is Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin Ale from Easton.
This is truly of season of gratitude, please join us to celebrate its bounty!
Join us in the Undercroft for this popular annual event. Be bewitched and bedazzled by artfully carved pumpkins, a harvest-themed menu, music and stories. Sway to the sounds of "Two Steps Back," a string band dedicated to the early days of Bluegrass Music. Guest Storyteller Christine San Jose will enchant you with her unique storytelling technique. Christine needs no introduction locally – she's a treasure we celebrate!
We had a great season of jazz on our deck. Now, we're bringing the music indoors with pianist Steve Faubel. Steve invites his friends to join him for spontaneous jam sessions night in our Chesnut Taven. Sample our newly expanded Tavern Menu while you relax by the fire with one of our October featured beers. You deserve a midweek break!
Father and Son, Grant and Justin, pair up again for our November Italian Wine Dinner. Every year Justin has a "sauce party" and spends the day in the kitchen making big pots of his delicious tomato sauce. We will feature the red sauce throughout the menu for this dinner, but the meatballs are the best. Earthy Italian reds will complement. Don't miss this informal fun gathering!
Don't let the holidays go by without a visit to The Settlers Inn. Come see the twinkling charm of the season as we decorate with evergreens and trim our Christmas trees. We go all out with the tinsel and holly – in fact it takes us four days to deck our halls! First up is our VERY popular Victorian Christmas Celebration on November 30 & December 1. This premier even is the perfect way to start off the season. Nothing rings in the holidays like choirs, candlelight and the warmth of the fireplace!
