A word from The Settlers Inn
The Settlers Inn is a place to gather. The arts & crafts decor reflects our emphasis on simplicity & artistry. This commitment is also emphasized through our use of local organic farmers & producers. In the chef owned farm-to-table restaurant, our menu, breads & desserts are all hand-crafted to take advantage of the freshest fruits, vegetables, & herbs of the season. We believe our use of local products helps to continue the tradition of small farming in our community. Our bluestone fireplace entices guests to bask in the warmth of a crackling fire after a day of cross-country skiing, while Summer offers dining alfresco on the terrace.
The Chestnut Tavern offers guests a more casual atmosphere. The wine program is an integral part of the dining experience. Our wine list has received an award of excellence by Wine Spectator for eleven years.

    Settler's has continued to provide consistently excellent food, superb service, and a very quiet relaxing atmosphere for a great dinner. Their wait staff is so skilled and so well adept at being there for your every need but not to the point of being obtrusive. Seasonal changes in menu are enough reason to go back at least once a quarter to see what the chef has created out of the local fare, mostly all organic and very imaginative. And it works!

    We went there for our anniversary in early September and were treated royally. The food, ambiance, service and the complimentary port they served as a "celebratory drink" at the end of our meal was especially appreciated. We will definitely go back!

    No doubt the Settler's Inn is the best spot for fine dining in the town of Hawley and its environs. In one dinner experience the wait staff could have been more attentive (so we waited--and waited), but other times, for breakfast, it was quite good. The menu of dishes, wines and beers was excellent, and the arts-and-crafts dining room provided a nice ambience. Our meals were delicious.

    We have dined at the Settlers' Inn many times - and were never disappointed! The menu is small, but top quality foods are used to prepare absolutely delicious dinners every time. You can't go wrong. Prices are at the upper end, but you would expect this. The wine list is a delight to study every time.

    Excellent quality and presentation of food served here. Every component part of the meal was outstanding - appetizer, entree, side dishes and desserts. Chef is quite creative and, obviously takes pride in everything that leaves the kitchen. Exceptionally large wine list and after dinner drink list. Service was impeccable. On the way out we already made another reservation.

    This was a first experience for two of the couples at our table and it could not have been better. The Settlers Inn is a fine dining experience one would not expect to find in this little town. The almond encrusted grouper was outstanding and the steak was done to perfection. There was a very impressive array of reasonably priced wine.

    My wife and I recently celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary at The Settlers Inn. I had reserved a table on Open Table and ordered flowers to be put on our table as well. I called ahead to let them know about the flower delivery. When we arrived, we were seated at a window table, flowers in place. They were very beautiful by the way. We were greeted with complimentary glasses of champagne. Dinner was superb, as it always is. The atmosphere is warm and the piano player adds a touch of class.

    We came to Have dinner July 25th and then on August 8th this year. both evenings were quiet celebrations, but the Settlers was the perfect place to celebrate. We've been to the Settlers many times, but usually in the winter. We had intended to eat outside, but because the pianist was playing in the dining room we decided to remain inside. Even though we forfeited the lovely garden setting, the music more than made up for it. Our guests loved everything about our evening. My husband is a fish-lover and so was very pleased with the Grouper. He's so fussy and said that the fish was cooked perfectly. All of the dishes were excellent. We will definitely return before Fall claims the garden.

    Went to the Settlers Inn for dinner last weekend, after not being there for many years , it did not disappoint. It is a beautiful place , an older home turned into a bed n breakfast , built in 1920 I believe . Spacious large room that spills into a bar area (small) and a large fireplace. You can hang and play chess, or have a glass of wine from their great wine list . Food was delicious as they change their menu most seasons. Had the petit filet mignon (4 on plate) and the scallops, both cooked to perfection. Waitress was attentive and courteous . Would definitely recommend .

    Normally I would have given this place a better rating but I can't compared to the Posh Club we ate in the next day. The nicest part of the evening was the piano player and the wine. He was great! Food was good but not great and it really should be. We ate here about 20 years ago and it seemed to be better. There used to be a dess code but now some of the people are dressed nicely and others like slobs. If you want a high caliber restaurant you can't have people dressed in tee shirts and jeans and others in jackets. That's up to the restaurant. Not going back anytime soon.

    Thoroughly enjoyed dinner. Food was served/presented beautifully and aesthetically. Food selections were artful as were the combinations and types of food together, such as chopped salad with chèvre mousse - delightful as was the zucchini lavender soup! There were a few glitches with the beer served, but server responded admirably. It appeared the server was very busy; however that did not detract from his seemingly genuine attention. Very much appreciate, value, and applaud the use of food from local farmers and artisan cheese makers, etc. Have been going to the Settlers Inn over a span of 20 years; this visit was the best and I can definitely see an overall finesse in their attention to detail, distinction, and fine dining.

    Upon entering this beautifully appointed historic inn and restaurant, We were immediately seated and our server, Peggy, gave us time to peruse the menu while she offered her suggestions. The chef uses local sources for the meats, fish, veggies, and cheeses, to name a few items. This adds to the selections on the menu where the mains were titled Earth, Water, Wind, and Fire. We selected the chicken with mango papaya slaw and the petite filet mignons with sauce beurre rouge 34. Both entrees were presented beautifully and tasted divinely, as they were cooked to perfection. Our anniversary was made even more special, as we dined on the covered deck, when Peggy served us complimentary glasses of champagne! Dessert? English Toffee Pudding! Yum
