130 acres and 19 centuries of rustic farm life in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley
The Glasbern combines more than 300 years of rural Pennsylvania character with 130 acres of modern farm-to-table practices. Greenhouses dot the 130-acre grounds, which guests can explore on owner-guided farm tours. And to see those valley fresh ingredients in action, head to the dining room, housed in a cozy 19th century barn complete with flagstone walls, exposed beams and 28-foot cathedral ceilings. Graze on free-range chicken with wild rice pilaf and glazed farm carrots and then retire to the fireplace at the pub to explore the hotel’s award-winning wine list. Individually decorated rooms ramble over the property in the barn, stables, carriage house and gate house. All offer Keurig coffee makers with organic coffee, iPod docks and flatscreen TVs; many have wood-burning fireplaces and whirlpool tubs.
In the Area
West of Allenstown, in Pennsylvania’s bucolic farm country, sits the 50-acre Fogelsville Dam Park and its Hassen Creek Trails peppered with fishing spots. Play 18 holes on a former dairy farm at the Woodbridge Golf Club. Hop in the car to explore neighboring Bethlehem, a newly revived former industrial town about 25 minutes from the hotel. Walk the historic Main Street, stopping in at the Moravian Bookstore, Irish boutique Donegal Square and nouveau American eatery the Apollo Grill. Catch an art flick, go ice skating or see a band at Steel Stacks, an arts complex housed on the former factory site of Bethlehem Steel.
