The Lodge at Glendorn

A rustic luxury retreat in rural Pennsylvania
VERIFIED LUXURY
Bringing luxury and refinement to the tranquility of northern Pennsylvania’s rural woodlands is what The Lodge at Glendorn is all about. It offers a memorable, adventurous getaway next to the Allegheny National Forest.

Originally a 1927 retreat for C.G. Dorn’s family that became a hotel in 1995, Glendorn is both an exciting outdoor locale and a relaxing luxury escape. The secluded setting delivers intimacy and privacy while providing access to a host of activities on the resort’s 1,500 acres of forest.

Our Inspector's Highlights
• Outdoor activates are a draw here any time of year. Summer evenings by the lake with elaborate meals, bonfires or quiet picnics top off days of kayaking, paddle boarding, hiking, biking, fly-fishing, tennis, basketball, shuffleboard and swimming.

• Jeep tours of the vast property are a special activity in the autumn under a canopy of amber and scarlet leaves. The Pennsylvania hotel also presents the unique experience of an apple cider press demonstration each fall, and tractor-drawn wagon rides.

• Winter snowshoeing, cross-country and downhill skiing, ice fishing, sledding, skeet shooting and snowmobiling keep you active when temperatures drop.

• One activity is a must any time of year: a visit to the resort’s spa. Here you can lounge in the relaxation room, linger in a private rain shower and opt for one (or more) indulgent treatments from the impressive spa menu.

• There’s no sacrificing fine dining while enjoying the rustic setting of The Lodge at Glendorn. Impeccable service and a gourmet menu are available not only in the main lodge, but all around the sprawling estate.
Things to Know
• Links lovers will benefit from a temporary membership to the nearby Pennhills Club golf course. 

• Those looking for the ultimate private escape can journey by jeep up to the Forest Hideout, known for its intimacy and wooded seclusion.

• Skipper Lake, one of the three lakes on the property, is small enough to freeze over for winter ice skating and curling.

• Onsite cooking classes can also add to a romantic getaway or an activity-filled visit.
The Rooms
• Whether staying in a room or suite at the Big House or in one of the cabins around the property, a rustic elegance is found in the elaborate fireplaces and the prominent California redwood and knotted pine décor.

• Amenities such as wood-burning fireplaces, pet-friendly cabins, Molton Brown bath products, turndown service and fresh chocolate chip cookies make Glendorn’s accommodations warm and welcoming.

• For kid-friendly accommodations complete with a built-in bunkroom, book Roost Cabin, which is located across an arched-stone footbridge.

• For more intimate getaways, try the Big House suites or the luxury cabin The Loft with its jetted tubs and billiard table.
The Restaurants
• Fully catered and serviced destination meals can be scheduled to include fine linens, the Dorn family silver and an upscale menu.

• The dining room in the Big House, adorned with fireplace, chandelier and piano, provides a classic location for dinners.

• Breakfasts and lunches in the sunroom give a lovely view of the grounds and the same gourmet selections from Glendorn’s esteemed culinary team.

• The chefs at Glendorn blend classic French techniques with regional favorites, and many ingredients are taken straight from the onsite garden, which boasts more than 60 varieties of vegetables.

• While always seasonal and flavorful, a four-course dining experience at Glendorn may begin with delights such as risotto followed by squab or scallops. An entrée featuring gnocchi, halibut or lamb may be followed up with a lemon soufflé as the finishing touch.
