Settlers Hospitality Experiences: The Hawley Silk Mill, The Potting Shed, Art on the Edge, Lake Region Fitness, & The Recreation Center at Silver Birches

Our lifestyle brands include specialty retail stores, a fitness center and yoga studio, and a lakefront outdoor activity center focused on both motorized and non motorized water experiences. Our lifestyle brands co-exist within our hotels and within our community. While open to the public year round, these lifestyle brands offer our guests a quality experience with modern amenities, historic charm, and exemplary service that go far beyond a typical hotel “gift shop” and “fitness center”. We offer our guests free access to our gym and yoga studio as well as maintaining outside membership for the community. The gym holds classes free to members 7 days a week and additionally sells day passes. We offer a unique retail experience to our guests at Art on the Edge, the Potting Shed at The Settlers Inn, and the Recreation Center at Silver Birches. We are now offering Kayak, SUP, and Pontoon boat rentals our guests and members of the community. For our guests at Ledges & The Settlers Inn, they are welcome to use the waterfront recreation at Silver Birches. Guests are welcome to travel between the properties and enhance their stay by curating their own experience out of the many options offered across all of our platforms.

Hawley Silk Mill – A vital part of this community since its construction in 1880. Its many incarnations over the years have included a silk factory with the foremost technology of the day, a textile factory, and antique center. Never has it been more vibrant than today. The vision for the repurposed factory is to have a center that celebrates the lifestyle of the Pocono Lake Region – a place for the residents and visitors alike to shop, gather, eat, exercise, and learn.
