Waterfront at Silver Birches

Imagine what George and Rachel Singer thought in 1926 as they watched their farm, circa 1904, turn into a lake. By 1929 they determined that there would be a need for more tourism lodging and decided to build a fourteen bedroom inn complete with dining room and kitchen capable of serving a full house and providing three meals a day. George Singer was not only a farmer and innkeeper but he also had a significant logging business in the area which was a growing concern so Rachel called upon her sister Marjorie Ehrhardt to assist with the inn. In 1943 Marjorie and George Ehrhardt purchased Silver Birches. The business continued to grow through the years and more land was acquired. The original 1904 farmhouse and barn were converted to more lodging for the sprawling resort. Before long the second Ehrhardt generation, Jerry and Alice joined the business. Alice and Jerry had three sons, Eric, Steve, and Craig. By the mid 1980’s all three boys who grew up on property had completed their education with concentration in hospitality. In 1995, seeing a need to cater to large weddings and events in this beautiful setting, they further expanded the restaurant business by adding the large Waterfront Banquet Center. By 2015, three generations of Ehrhardt’s had put in seventy-two years building the family business. But it was time to further evolve for the Ehrhardt’s. Eric Ehrhardt and Justin Genzlinger put their heads together and devised a way for the growing Genzlinger family of businesses to acquire Ehrhardt’s. With the acquisition came the passion of the Genzlinger’s of historic preservation. The name of the business became Silver Birches. The vision was to preserve the vintage lakeside resort but bring a new level of aesthetics to the property. 2016 saw a major renovation to the buildings and restaurant while preserving the original farmhouse and outbuildings but updating the restaurant, now known as The Dock. The Ehrhardt family has continued to work and consult with the Genzlinger’s to enhance this beautiful gem on the shores of Wallenpaupack. Everything old is new again.

At The Hop

Start your day with coffee & apple streusel cake before you start dancing the day away!

Enjoy a family style meal and then put on your dancing shoes back on and dance some more. Lay down a groove with The New Paramounts, an authentic 50’s & 60’s Doo-wop Band. Their fancy footwork and smooth harmonies will have you dancing the day away, and when you finally take a break, you will be tappin’ your toes and boppin’ your head to the music. Back in the 50’s, the 8-piece group recorded the hit singles “Trying” and “Girlfriend”, and today, their CD, “The Paramounts, Then & Now”, sells nationally on iTunes and other Internet sites. In the afternoon, we’ll keep things lively with a conga line, twist contest, silly lyrics contest, and more! So put on your blue suede shoes and poodle skirt and “Let’s Go to the Hop” with The New Paramounts!

Lake Tobias Wildlife Park – Since 1965 Lake Tobias Wildlife Park has been fascinating patrons with its wild, exotic animals and adventure-seeking safari tours. Nestled in the quiet countryside, Lake Tobias resounds with the sight and sounds of the jungles and grasslands of six continents. Animals, reptiles and birds from around the world can be found here.

Our wildlife park is both a zoo and a functioning farm. Employees work the 300 acres of farmland to grow food that feeds the hoofed stock. Some of our animals roam freely throughout the park, such as chickens, peacocks, and guineas. Lake Tobias also offers a variety of shows and exhibitions designed to educate and entertain visitors. Patrons often enjoy getting a real-life glimpse of what it’s like to manage and sustain a large wildlife park.

Hundreds of animals reside along 50 acres of exhibits and displays at our wildlife park. These exhibits include African lions, American black bears, baboons, Bengal tigers, monkeys, ostriches, kangaroos, American alligators, pythons, tortoises, llamas, camels, alpacas, zebras, and more. The lions, bears, tigers, and baboons are housed in some of our most spacious, exciting, and recently renovated exhibits. The reptile and exotics building isn’t just home to snakes and lizards; it also houses many other animals such as critically-endangered tamarins, exotic marmosets, tropical birds, a sloth, lemurs, and a few surprises!

The petting zoo allows visitors to feed and pet goats, alpacas, camels, and llamas. At the Reptiles & Exotics Facility, you can see eye-opening presentations on fascinating creatures and even touch an alligator if you dare. The feeding of alligators is one of our more popular attractions. This takes place at the outdoor alligator exhibit on Sundays at approximately 4 p.m., provided the alligators feel warm enough to feed.

Patrons can explore the park at their leisure to learn and be entertained by hundreds of creatures. Visitors should allocate about one hour to see the different exhibits.

Safari Tours – The main attraction at Lake Tobias Wildlife Park. Specially designed, open-air cruisers take you across 150 acres of rolling hills where you’ll see herds of wild and exotic animals from around the world. Tour guides travel with you through pasture land and wooded areas giving expert information on the various species and their habitats. Approximately 500 head of mammals and flightless birds, which may vary daily, are on the tour. You will be amazed at how close you will come to these animals. Please note: Children under 13 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.

Food and souvenirs are available for purchase.

Its vaulted, sky-lit cells once held many of America’s most notorious criminals, including bank robber “Slick Willie” and Al Capone.
