Enjoy a Special Stay at The Lodge at Glendorn in Bradford PA

The small Lodge at Glendorn in the city of Bradford in Pennsylvania may be a relative unknown compared to the many famous vacation and business locations in the United States, but if you do visit one of these days, you will actually find it quite enjoyable. From Bradford, you can enjoy easy access to the Allegheny National Forest as well as to a number of parks and recreation centers.

The Lodge at Glendorn also provides another great reason for you to be in Bradford. Its idyllic atmosphere and old world charm combine for a hotel experience that will not be soon forgotten. The property was acquired by the Dorn family in 1927, and most of the architecture from that period has been preserved. This makes staying at The Lodge a unique experience that you should definitely try if you happen to be in the Pennsylvania area.

Room at the Glendorn Lodge.
Every visit to The Lodge is a unique experience because of the variety of rooms that you can choose from. Bigger groups may prefer to stay in the Big House, which is one of the original structures on the property. Smaller groups, couples, or individuals may prefer one of the suites or cabins instead. No matter which room you choose, you will surely enjoy all of the comforts of fresh linens, monogrammed towels, and all of the basic entertainment and living amenities. At the end of the day, you can curl up in front of the fireplace, which all of the suites and cabins come equipped with.

With the cozy rooms, you can also enjoy the use of the other facilities and engage in the many activities offered in the Glendorn. You can maximize all 1,300 acres of the property by going fly fishing, playing tennis at the courts, and going for a dip in the swimming pool. You can also do some exploring around the grounds as you do some kayaking, hiking, and mountain biking in the property.

Of course, all that activity can make anyone hungry. The Lodge can take care of that as it offers a great selection of dishes using fresh ingredients. You can dine in style in the Great Room, where the tables are decked out in the best linen and Tiffany flatware.

For an even more enjoyable stay, make sure you book an appointment at Glendorn’s spa. You can choose to have your treatment done at the poolside cabana or in the comfort of your own suite.

Your special experience at The Lodge can be both enjoyable and affordable. There are quite a number of special packages for you to choose from, depending on your preference and the length of your stay. For instance, you can choose from a number of two-night activity packages, which are great if you enjoy winter sports or fly-fishing. If you are staying for three nights with your significant other, you can take advantage of the Romance Package and savor your chocolate-covered strawberries and champagne. There is a special package for families as well.

If you also happen to be in the area during a special holiday, check for special promotions. Chances are, you’ll find a good deal to make the festivities even more special.

Fishing at the Lodge
One of the most popular activities in the area is fly fishing, so if you would like to try it out, then this is the place to go. Mountain bikes are also available for rental, and group rides take place twice weekly. In the winter, you can go cross-country skiing instead. With the abundance of activities in the area, there isn’t any time to get bored.
