Eco-Friendly Notes

We at Silver Birches are proud members of the Delaware Highlands Green Lodging Program. With every reservation, our guests directly support protecting the things that make the Delaware Highlands Region so special – our healthy and beautiful lands, our clean waters and our abundant outdoor recreation opportunities.

The Green Lodging Partnership Program is a natural fit for Silver Birches and our sister properties, Ledges Hotel and The Settlers Inn. Our focus on being sustainable and on the preservation of this beautiful region has been part of what we do for many years. Our hotel families are delighted to be leading the way in assuring that our region is always a place people want to come and enjoy.

The Program works as follows: A $2.00 donation automatically added to each reservation is contributed directly to the Conservancy to support its conservation mission and assure that all the special places, scenic beauty, and outdoor recreational opportunities that bring tourists to the Upper Delaware River region are protected now and every time they visit in the future. Guests may opt out, but the successful launch of the program shows that very few have.

The Conservancy works in partnership with landowners and communities to protect the healthy lands, clean waters, and quality of life in the Upper Delaware River region. The Conservancy focuses as well on supporting locally sustainable economies.

Inn Style

The Silver Birches Resort is home to a collection of thirteen vintage structures with varied histories dating back to the 1920s. The choices for lodging are broken down into three categories including guest rooms, cottages and houses. All buildings face our nearly 700 ft. of shoreline on Lake Wallenpaupack and offer views of the lake. Many have porches, decks, balconies, fireplaces and whirlpool tubs. All of the guest rooms have undergone a complete renovation in 2016. All of the buildings and cottages received an exterior upgrade this year. Join us for a tour of this unique vintage resort.

Guest rooms are housed in five buildings and offer a wide variety of accommodations. All rooms have a view of the lake.

The Inn
The cornerstone of Silver Birches and the oldest structure, this farmhouse was completely renovated in 2016 but dates back to the 1920s. Enjoy the common room with fireplace and the glorious sun room.

The Inn houses three deluxe King-bedded rooms on the first floor with fireplaces and direct access to the wide front porch. The second floor offers two deluxe suites, living room with fireplace, King-bedded room and master baths. All have picture windows and dramatic views. The third floor offers two junior suites with King-bedded room, master bath including whirlpool tubs, and den.

The Lakeshore
This building dates to 1966 and features mid-century architecture. Eight guest rooms all have private entrance and balconies with an array of rooms including two rooms with queen beds, four rooms with two double beds, and two deluxe king-bedded rooms. This building was entirely redone in 2016 with all new bathrooms and an eclectic blend of mid-century furnishings.

The Sunset View
This building was once the barn for the original Singer farm but there is nothing barn-like about it now. Three deluxe suites with private decks, King-bedded rooms, master baths and wet bars are on the first floor. The second floor houses two deluxe King rooms with en suite whirlpool tubs and fireplaces.

The Bunkhouse
Designed for families, the bunkhouse is a collection of four two-bedroom suites. Each contains a master bedroom and second bedroom with one full-size bed and bunk beds. This is a place where family memories are made and treasured.

There are five vintage two-bedroom cottages on property. Each cottage is named after a sailboat type that you might see on Wallenpaupack. Cottages are rented weekly during the high season of July and August. All have outdoor deck, two bedrooms, living room with fireplace and full kitchen. They have easy access to the pool and lakefront.

Singer Lane is the home to three houses on property, The Retreat, The Landing and The Big House. The Retreat and The Landing, both built in 2015, have three bedrooms all with private bath, living room with fireplace, kitchen and dining areas. Each house has a deck and outside grill.

The Big House sleeps up to ten guests. It is the perfect lakefront home for a large family or group vacation. It has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, den, living room, kitchen, dining room, family room and huge deck facing the lake. All houses have laundry rooms.
