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.

A conference or convention venue might be described by meeting planners as offering ease and convenience for multiple reasons. It may be because its address is easily accessible from numerous compass points. Or perhaps it’s the destination—with a variety of opportunities for activities and entertainment close-by. And of course, it could be that the venue itself offers a peaceful, easy setting with all the comforts you could want. 

Well, at Treetops Resort, it’s all of the above. 

 

I chatted with Karen Totaro, general manager of Detroit’s newly renamed Huntington Place convention center, for our People Profile page in the spring issue of Michigan Meetings + Events. We didn’t have room for the whole conversation, so I wanted to share more of what Totaro had to say.  

 

From throwing axes to racing go-karts, everybody wins when teambuilding takes a sporty turn. 

Step away from the Zoom call. Put the spreadsheets aside. Exit the conference room. If you want to foster collaboration and strengthen bonds among colleagues, it helps to break a sweat, have some fun and engage in a little friendly competition. Whether it’s during a multiday meeting or an afternoon retreat with your office mates, Michigan offers countless ways to take a sporty approach to teambuilding.
