1. The Erie Hotel & Restaurant, Port Jervis


A classic hotel in a classic building – built in 1890 as a railroad hotel – the Erie retains a lot of that frontier, new world charm. With traditional and cozy rooms that all offer wifi, flat-screen TVs and ensuite bathrooms, this hotel makes for a great stay. There’s free parking, a pool table and a tiki bar – which is a local favorite. For meals, try the on-site all-American restaurant, serving comfort food including fresh burgers, as well as craft beer.

This modern hotel has a touch of class. The fireplace of its wood-paneled lobby ensures a warm welcome, while the rooms guarantee satisfaction – generous and comfortable with understated colors, expansive windows and tasteful trimmings.

Hot breakfast and covered parking are complimentary – and to work off the snack shop, there’s a well-equipped fitness center.

You’ll feel as if you’re on a Scottish family estate rather than in the middle of the Pennsylvania countryside at this expansive resort. Set on 5,500 acres (2,225ha) of parkland, this country pile has just the sort of accommodation you’d hope for – classic, opulent, considered and decked in rich colors. Speaking of rich, there’s a wealth of activities at your fingertips, including a treetop adventure course, ax throwing and rock climbing.

5. The Stickett Inn, Barryville

A cheeky pun? An accidental name? I guess we’ll never know. Oh, hold on – yes, we do – the cottage around the back is called Stickett Inn (the Rear). Lovely. An urban enclave in the woods, the cool rooms are trendy and considered – with memory foam beds, free wifi, rainfall showers and cable TV. There’s also access to a communal outdoor hot tub and a bar, home to the inn’s signature cider and a taqueria.

6. The Settlers Inn, Hawley, Pennsylvania

​​An arts-and-crafts-era inn dating to 1927, this has been a family affair for over 40 years, and the love shows. Though adorned with antiques and period-appropriate furnishings, this is not a museum – it’s a place to relax and indulge. Priding themselves on their seasonal farm-to-table restaurant, Settlers Inn makes for luxury lodgings that are cozy, comfortable and traditional without being stuffy. There’s also a complimentary country breakfast to devour.

7. Hotel Fauchère, Milford, Pennsylvania
