You only have to visit the historic Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort once to be captivated by the majestic mountain scenery and historic charm that make it a special place. Two miles from the Delaware Water Gap and Interstate 80, the Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort rests at the foot hills to the Pocono Mountains. With New York City only 70 miles away and Philadelphia a mere 100 miles, our location is our greatest asset next to our championship golf.

Golf at Shawnee is a special experience. 24 of our 27 holes are on a private island in the Delaware River. This unique setting makes it a sanctuary for golfers. When you play the island course at Shawnee, you are playing a historical track. The original 18 holes were designed by famous golf course architect AW Tillinghast, it is home to the PGA Championships in 1938 and since it’s opening in 1911, Shawnee has been played by golf legends Arnold Palmer, Hale Irwin, Sam Snead, Paul Runyun, Walter Hagan, Gene Sarazan and many others.

In 2013, Stay & Play at Shawnee only got better. We have added Great Bear Golf Club, a Jack Nicklaus Signature Design Course to the family. This 18-hole course has been rated one of the top 8 course in PA by GolfWeek. Reserve your Golf & Stay Package today. To book a tee time call 570-213-5060.

Our location - on the edge of the pristine Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area and on the banks of the wild and scenic Delaware River, mean that a wealth of outdoor recreation opportunities are right on the doorstep of this historic Poconos Pennsylvania hotel. Kayaking, canoeing, rafting, biking, hiking and fishing are all offered right from the grounds of the resort. Our recreation staff will engage you in farm tours, campfires with smores, hikes on the Appalachian Trail, hayrides and much more! A great opportunity for couples and families to bond together.

The natural environment that Shawnee calls home is special to our staff and guests. We take seriously our responsibility as stewards of this beautiful land: we have instituted recycling and waste reduction programs; we refrain from using chemicals in our housekeeping and laundry, provide a linen reuse program for our guests and are studying the opportunities to use alternative energy.

Here, on the edge of the breathtaking Delaware River, secluded from the outside world, your diversion will be complete. Be exceptionally active or simply allow the gentle current of the Delaware River to keep time for you, letting the romance and splendor of the Poconos Mountains soothe your senses and satisfy your soul.
