MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C., April 30, 2018 Settlers Hospitality Group, proud owners of The Settlers Inn, Ledges Hotel, Silver Birches Resort, Hawley Silk Mill, Sayre Mansion, and Hotel Anthracite, choose Q4Launch to launch new Future Proof® websites for their properties. This partnership began in 2014 when Q4Launch was selected to manage digital marketing for the Settlers Group’s first two hotels: The Settlers Inn and Ledges Hotel in Hawley, PA. As Settlers Hospitality Group grew to include to 6 properties in Pennsylvania, so has its partnership with Q4Launch, which enhances the digital marketing experience for each of their premier properties.

Most recently, Q4Launch began marketing for Hotel Anthracite, formerly The Carbondale Grand Hotel, in Carbondale, PA. The Settlers Group acquired the property this year and is holding a grand reopening this spring. Settlers Group also acquired the Sayre Mansion bed and breakfast in Bethlehem, PA, in 2017. It had already been a Q4Launch marketing customer since 2014.

“Each of our hotels has a unique story to tell, and Q4Launch expertly tells the story through website design, custom content, and data-driven marketing,” said Justin Genzlinger, CEO of Settlers Hospitality Group.  

“We are thrilled to grow and thrive with Settlers Hospitality Group,” said Q4Launch founder Matt Bare. “It’s our great honor to capture the distinct uniqueness of each hotel while maintaining a cohesive Settlers Hospitality brand feel.”

About the Settlers Hospitality Group Properties

The Settlers Inn, built in 1927, stands as a fine example of English Arts and Crafts design. Native blue stone and chestnut woods are the foundation of the inn’s structure. It was built shortly after Lake Wallenpaupack, a man-made lake with a 52-mile shoreline, was created in 1925.

Hawley Silk Mill was constructed in 1880. As the name would imply, it was once a silk mill, and today serves as a lifestyle center complete with shops, a market, gallery, fitness center, and bakery.

Silver Birches Resort is a collection of buildings, anchored by a farmhouse dating back to the 1920s. It was once a vintage lakeside resort and recent renovations honor that history while still creating a luxurious experience for guests.

Ledges Hotel is nestled in the Pocono Mountains and was built in 1890. This Federal-style structure was originally built for the John S. O’Connor Glass Factory.

Sayre Mansion is a Gothic Revival-style mansion, constructed in the 1850s. It was the first house built in the wealthy neighborhood called Fountain Hill and was home to one of the community’s most distinguished men, Robert Heysham Sayre. He was the chief engineer for the Lehigh Valley Railroad, and the Sayre Mansion still honors its ties back to the railroad.

Hotel Anthracite has a coal mining and cultural heritage. The ambiance of the hotel transports guests with a peek into the past of Carbondale while providing all the comforts of modern amenities.
