Fall is by far the most colorful season at the Inn. Beginning in mid-September, the birch, maple, oak, cherry and other hardwoods turn the region into a splendid display of foliage colors. The scenery while hiking the trails of Hickory Run and Lehigh Gorge State Parks is spectacular. are The Audubon Society's car touring route passes right in front of the Inn, if you like to drive, or you can simply enjoy one of the areas many fall foliage festivals.
Fall is also the best season for biking the Lehigh Gorge trail. The trail can be accessed near the Inn and runs for more than 25 miles down to Jim Thorpe. Many of our guests enjoy a breakfast with us, ride down to Jim Thorpe for lunch and return to the Inn for an enjoyable evening at one of many local restaurants.
Golf courses remain open until early November. Fall is also a time to get one last kayak run on the Lehigh River or to catch the native trout that have eluded spring and summer anglers.
Nights are definitely cool, but you will enjoy relaxing next to one of our outdoor fireplace near our waterfall. Enjoy an evening outside under the stars; there are no city lights here to obstruct your view.
