The Lodge at Glendorn

A rustic luxury retreat in rural Pennsylvania
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.
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.
