The Settlers Inn, built in 1927, stands as a fine example of English Arts and Crafts design. Native blue stone and chestnut woods are the foundation of the Inn’s massive structure. The building was built by the community shortly after Lake Wallenpaupack, a man made lake with a 52 mile shoreline, was created in 1925. The forward thinking Chamber of Commerce rightfully believed that tourism would come and they wanted to be prepared with the finest hotel for miles around. They succeeded in building the hotel that originally had 54 rooms. Unfortunately the Great Depression and World War II kept the building from opening until 1944. After a series of different owners and incarnations, the Genzlinger family and friends purchased the property in 1980. It continues to be a labor of love.
Throughout every aspect of The Settlers Inn experience, Proprietors Jeanne and Grant Genzlinger infuse the true spirit of the Arts and Crafts movement, a philosophy which emerged in the 1860s in England in reaction to the heavy ornamentation and industrialization of the high Victorian era.
“The head had been separated from the hand during the industrial revolution,” argued early proponents of the Arts and Crafts movement, such as William Morris and John Roskin.
“We are very ‘hands on’ in our approach to hospitality,” says Jeanne.
