Before I even begin I have to admit I may be biased in this review. The Settlers Inn is one of my favorite places in the world. My husband and I came here for the first time on our 2nd wedding anniversary in 2005 and have come every 2 or 3 years since. As soon as I walk through the doors I feel peace.
We’ve told countless friends about The Settlers Inn and those who have been fortunate enough to get away for the weekend to this lovely B&B have agreed with us. It is a very special place. When I contacted Settlers and asked about doing a blog review I was thrilled when they said yes. Their yes meant a much-needed respite from everyday life with my dear husband. Having four children underfoot makes the need for alone time stronger each year. It is important for us to spend time together remembering why we fell in love and got married.
We’ve never been there with Christmas decorations up before and I was so excited when we walked through the doors on January 3rd that they were still up. Even the pictures feel welcoming and homey.
The Settlers Inn is an authentic 1920s Arts & Crafts Lodge. There is plenty of dark woodwork, mood lighting, and a huge roaring fireplace to make you feel cozy and at home. My husband and I have spent countless hours playing Scrabble next to the fore mentioned fireplace.
The service is impeccable and the food is delicious. Once you step through the front door and enter the lobby you can no reason to leave. We eat our meals there, relax there, and just enjoy being together. With both a full service farm-to-table restaurant and a more casual tavern you never have to leave the inn.
Breakfast is included with your stay. You may order whatever you like off of the menu. Coffee is always a must. The Settlers Inn’s menu changes seasonal and revolves around fresh, local ingredients. They have some great specials. On Tuesdays, a burger and a brew in the Chestnut Tavern is only $10. On Wednesday they were offering a free cheese board with the purchase of a glass of wine. The Tavern area filled up even on weeknights with couples relaxing on the couches near the fire and taking turns playing Scrabble.
We stayed in a lovely room this past trip with a fireplace and a large tub. At home I have a 4-foot bathtub. 4 feet. Not enough to even try to stretch out in. Whenever we travel taking a nice hot bath is one of my priorities. The tub in Room 212 was perfection. Every time we’ve stayed at The Settlers Inn I noticed how clean the rooms are. Everything is in its place and ready for us to enjoy. The rooms have all the standard amenities and some nice extras like comfortable robes and quality toiletries.
If you are looking for a getaway in the Pocono Mountains The Settlers Inn is my top recommendation. I know you will enjoy your time there.
