Visit this reborn, luxurious and romantic Lehigh Valley bed and breakfast inn located on a 100 acre working farm near Allentown, PA, just a short drive from Philadelphia, New York, Baltimore and New Jersey.
About this Inn (from their site) :
Seven separately renovated buildings - once used to run the farm - now house guests with 38 unique rooms or suites. Most rooms include a fireplace and a whirlpool and include a combination of country comfort, new and antique furnishings, and 21st century business necessities. The original building now houses our beautiful restaurant and cozy pub where our chefs use their passion for farm to table cuisine to create a memorable menu, which is truly direct from the source.
A fitness facility, spa, and outdoor heated pool, high-speed internet access, and a business center make Glasbern Inn the perfect choice for business or pleasure. Glasbern Country Inn offers romantic getaways in Pennsylvania that are sure to meet and exceed your expectations from a bed and breakfast establishment.
Driving up to this area I was beginning to wonder what would be in store for us once we arrived, but I was pleasantly surprised. The Glasbern Inn is not just one building, but seven, and they all have that historic charm, with the modern amenities. If you enjoy architecture, farm buildings, or just relaxing, then this is the perfect place to visit.
Upon our arrival we were greeted at the desk and given a room key. Our room consisted of a large sleep number bed, fireplace, jacuzzi, large screen tv and a stocked refrigerator. After a few minutes we decided to explore and wandered up to the greenhouse, over to the pasture where you can see cattle and sheep on the horizon, and finally down to the in ground pool. One of things that I loved about Glasbern was how peaceful it was. One night I sat in the rocking chair outside our room and watching a storm roll in. The sky went from blue to pink to gray to almost black, but it was beautiful and so serene.
Not only are the grounds lush with flowers and vegetation, but their food is delicious. The original building was converted into the restaurant and kitchen, with the exposed stone and beams adding to this rustic feel, but the food is far from rustic! For the breakfast, that is complimentary for all guests of Glasbern, guests can choose from a menu and also enjoy the variety of the buffet. My husband and I ordered Eggs Benedict, and it was honestly the best Eggs Benedict we've ever had.
If you are looking for a romantic getaway, this definitely fits the bill with a restaurant on site, nature all around, fireplace and jacuzzi, spa, inground pool, and minutes from shops and attractions. Only about an hour from Philadelphia, an hour from NYC, and 2 hours from Harrisburg, this is the perfect location for a weekend getaway! We had a fantastic time, and are definitely planning to return in the future, and they offer gift certificates so for any of my family members who read this, you may be getting this for Christmas. ;-)
They also host weddings, receptions, business meetings, and events, so take some time to visit their site: http://www.glasbern.com/index.htm
