View of the waterfall … the sound is the best part!

You know, I thought I might be surprised when I saw what the Genzlingers (owners of The Settlers Inn in Hawley, PA as well as The Sayre Mansion in Bethlehem, PA) did with an abandoned glass factory in Hawley…but after working for them a few times in the past, we know what to expect: quality and great taste.

They have truly outdone themselves with Ledges Hotel.  It is quite a departure from nearby Settlers Inn, where everything is steeped in the arts and crafts style. Ledges is a unique boutique hotel, directly below…next to…practically ON TOP of a gorgeous waterfall. It is simply spectacular.
The hotel was designed by renowned architect Peter Bohlin of Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, designers of, among MANY other notable buildings, the coolest Apple stores (the 5th Avenue New York and Louvre, Paris stores, to name but two). The result is a sleek, but comfortable hotel, which maintains much of the great architecture of the original building, including the gorgeous HUGE windows, while making the interior spaces very contemporary. Few places we have seen have been so successful at bringing the outside IN.

The décor is appropriately modern, fresh and uncluttered. Much of the beautiful furniture is built-in and made from old beams salvaged from the nearby silk mill. Read more about how they creatively incorporated various elements into their green design.
Kudos to the Genzlingers for a great adaptive re-use. Recycle, re-use…renaissance!If you are a member of the press and want to see or use any of the 89 high resolution images from this shoot, just email us  for the password to the Jumping Rocks Media Bank   page for Ledges Hotel.
