Green Lodging Partnership welcomes two new partners


HAWLEY, PA AND BETHEL, NY —The Delaware Highlands Conservancy’s (DHC) Green Lodging Partnership has welcomed two new partners: Villa Roma Resort in Callicoon, NY and the Roebling Inn on the Delaware in Lackawaxen, PA, bringing to the number to 12 local lodgings that have asked their guests to join them in the long-term protection of our quality of life. Guests pay a $2 donation with each lodging reservation, which is contributed directly to the DHC to support its conservation mission to protect the natural assets that bring tourists to the Upper Delaware River region.

At Villa Roma, operations manager Erik Karner reports that the entire property has moved to single-stream recycling and has added other green practices, such as installing water-saver fixtures and changing light fixtures to LEDs.

At the Roebling Inn, owners JoAnn and Don Jahn say they joined “because we do not take for granted the beauty and nature that surrounds us. Our participation is a token of our appreciation for all the Conservancy accomplishes.”
