Lake Wallenpaupack’s Ehrhardt's Waterfront Banquet Center was purchased in October by Settlers Hospitality Group. Renamed Silver Birches, the property joins Settlers Hospitality Group, which has a growing portfolio, including Ledges Hotel (hosts up to 50 people for meetings), The Settlers Inn (up to 155 people) and The Hawley Silk Mill (up to 50 people).
Silver Birches was known as Ehrhardt’s Waterfront Banquet Center for more than 30 years. The property has some history…it originally opened as the Silver Birches Resort by the Singer family in 1929. Interestingly enough, the Ehrhardt family is related to the Singer family. After its purchase and complete renovation by Settlers, it was decided that it would return to its original name—Silver Birches.
The meeting facilities include The Waterfront at Silver Birches for up to 300 people and a smaller space, The Starboard Room, which hosts up to 45 people.
