There is a lovely Bed and Breakfast in Hawley, Pennsylvania, called the Settlers Inn. It is located in the Pocono Mountains. Once you step through their doors, you get a distinct feeling that you have stepped back in time.
The area and the Inn itself is packed with history. Their website boasts that; "The inn was built in 1927, at the same time Lake Wallenpaupack was created by the Pennsylvania Power & Light Company for hydroelectric power. The name "Wallenpaupack" comes from the Leni-Lenape Indians and means "The Stream of Swift and Slow Water."
Although designed by a Long Island architect and built by the community between 1927 and 1929, the inn never opened due to the Depression and sat empty until 1944 when it opened with 54 rooms. The current owners purchased the inn in the 1980's, transforming and updating it in keeping with the Arts & Crafts features of the local community and consolidating rooms to create 21 individually designed rooms.
William Penn first owned the Settlers Inn land, which he later deeded to his son. It was then passed to James Wilson, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence."
This is perfect if you are looking to bring a little of the past into your decor.
