  • Experience the beauty of Mother Nature at Grey Towers National Historic Site. Once the summer home of Gifford Pinchot, two-time governor of Pennsylvania and the first chief of the United States Forest Service, this French château-inspired house boasts beautiful views of the Delaware River from its hillside perch in the Pennsylvania town of Milford. In addition to visiting this U.S. National Historic Landmark, guests can also learn about woodland ecosystems during a walk along the Forest Discovery Trail, see a recreation of a Yale School of Forestry tent site, take in a complimentary ranger talk, and explore the Milford Experimental Forest. Throughout the year, Grey Towers National Historic Site also puts on special events like guided hikes, seasonal tours of the house and grounds, live musical performances, and more.

  • Stroll through a piece of Poconos history with a visit to D&H Canal Park at Lock 31. Conveniently located just over five miles from Silver Birches, this 16-acre park offers a snapshot into life on the Delaware & Hudson Canal. From 1828 to 1899, the canal was used to transport coal from the mines of Northeastern Pennsylvania to the Hudson River and, eventually, to market in New York City. Today, this former canal lock remains mostly intact, the only one of its kind in Pennsylvania. Along with a replica canal boat, guests can also explore the Daniels Farmhouse, an 1820s-era homestead that, through the years, has served as a private home, an inn, and a canal store.

  • Take a day trip to the nearby village of White Mills, Pennsylvania, which produced some of the finest crystal in the United States between the 1850s to around 1910 courtesy of the Dorflinger Glass Works, which created pieces for U.S. presidents and influential families of the Gilded Age. Today, the hamlet is home to two museums dedicated to the craft: the Dorflinger Glass Museum and the Dorflinger Factory Museum. Located inside the former house of founder Christian Dorflinger, the Dorflinger Glass Museum boasts over 1,000 pieces of cut, etched, engraved, gilded, and enameled Dorflinger crystal and glass, one of the largest collections of its kind in the country. Guests can also appreciate the craftsmanship of the Dorflinger Glass Works at the Dorflinger Factory Museum. Housed in what was once the factory's cutting shop and factory office (circa 1883 and 1888, respectively), this fascinating museum details the history and production process of the signature cut lead crystal, which adorned some of the most prestigious tables in America.

  • Cross the state line into New York for a visit to the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts. Situated roughly 50 minutes from the hotel, this remarkable cultural institution is located on the site of the historic 1969 Woodstock festival. Through interactive displays, treasured artifacts like a hippie bus, and media like films and music, the Museum at Bethel Woods brings the storied festival to life and shares the ideals that made it an enduring cultural phenomenon. Appropriately, Bethel Woods also carries on Woodstock's legacy by offering access to the arts, encouraging peace through music by hosting a free summer concert series for families, musical performances by world-class artists throughout the year, seasonal festivals and markets, live theater, creative workshops, and more.
