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 nameSilver 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.

Washington’s Vancouver Waterfront development project will be getting a big boost this summer with the opening of two long-awaited hotels. The 138-room Hotel Indigo is scheduled to open in late June or early July while the 150-room AC Hotel by Marriott is looking to make its debut on June 15 at the Port of Vancouver’s adjacent Terminal 1. A 10-story condominium building, Residences at Kirkland Tower, is planning an October opening and will be attached to Hotel Indigo.

 

Sheraton Dallas Hotel has introduced a new outdoor event space under its new event programming, Dare to Outdoors. The hotel’s catering team has partnered with Pacific Plaza Park, a 3.7-acre green space in Downtown Dallas. The park features a 31,950 square-foot lawn space and permanent seating, as well as night-sky friendly lights for star-watchers. Three food truck power outlets are available and standard outlets are located throughout the park.

 

If you’re planning a meeting in Idaho, you’ll want to be sure and have a beer break on the itinerary. The state is the top barley producer in the United States and the second-top producer of hops.
