Cozy up with a fireside dinner at the Settlers Inn (4 Main Ave., Hawley, Penn.), a bed and breakfast situated near the lake country of the Pocono Mountains, about five hours north of downtown D.C.
This gracefully decorated lodge near Lake Wallenpaupack offers a relaxation getaway that includes wine and food pairings, and special packages sure to fulfill any traveler's needs.
The inn's award-winning
restaurant works with local farmers to bring foodies the freshest farm-to-table meals prepared by Executive Chef Grant Genzlinger. Fireside dining is offered every Monday and Tuesday (through March 27) at the restaurant, while various wine and dinner events
happen throughout each month.
But don't forget about the booze! (Is that even possible?) The Chestnut Tavern, located on the property, will fulfill all your aperitif needs with their abundant list of wines, liquors and craft beers.
Packages at the lodge
include spa getaways and wine lovers' deals. Add a dozen roses and chocolate to any package for $65 or champagne and cheese platter for $50. Prices for each room can range from $166-$395/night.
Thanks to this weirdly spring-like weather this winter, you may want to take to the outdoors and explore a bit. Meander around the new trail surrounding Lake Wallenpaupack, or take a scenic drive
in the backcountry; eagle viewing optional.
