4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is a very historical place which is both a good thing and a not so good thing. You feel life you could be hosted by Mr Letchworth himself, sitting with you on the front porch, watching the falls. The interior stairway woodwork is beautiful and the common areas are comfortable. The gardens were stunning. Very relaxing in general. Our... More

We enjoyed a delicious dinner at The Glen Iris Inn. The service was wonderful also. There is a great gift shop there with beautiful nature themed gifts. I highly recommend visiting " The Grand Canyon of the East" and this jewel of a restaurant and Inn.

This is probably one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. Located inside Letchworth Sate Park and overlooking a stunning waterfalls, the inn itself is charming and inviting. We had dinner in the restaurant which we thoroughly enjoyed ,including the very reasonable prices and great service.. Steps outside the Inn lead to a very accessible trail that guide... More

This inn is located in rural western NY and just on the north entrance of Letchworth State Park. The Inn itself overlooks a beautiful waterfall, one of the highlights of the parks. If you are staying here it's because you want to experience Letchworth Park, spend quiet time with loved ones or friends, or you need to get away from... More

This is an absolutely great spot. We have been going yearly now for the last 6 or 7 years. It's so relaxing and breathtakingly beautiful. This spot is nature at its best. The staff are so welcoming, the restaurant is excellent, there are a few little towns surrounding the area. The rooms are quite small and they do need some... More

We witnessed two weddings during our stay, this made it a very busy place. Grounds beautifully landscaped. We enjoyed relaxing on the porch watching the falls. At night the falls are lit up with spotlights. Food and service was outstanding. Rooms are very small but adequate. Plan on spending time in the park- not your room. Phone service is spotty.

We were told that our Maple Room Suite abutted a special library, and the only tv in the place. Both nights a rowdy group claimed that space, and we couldn't sleep past the noise. The place needs cleaning, re-modeling, and a modern vision. The park is astonishing beautiful.

For those who enjoy historic inns, the Glen Iris is worth visiting. It is a beautiful building in Letchworth State Park. The inn is situated next to the middle falls, which lull you to sleep at night. Because it's an old building, the rooms are quite small. I'd definitely recommend getting a suite rather than a room, if one is... More

We have traveled to Letchworth State Park many times, this was our first overnight at Glen Iris Inn. The personnel were so very friendly and welcoming. The Inn is really quite beautiful, but it is old (stairs, floors, mattresses all creak a lot). The rooms are very, very small. Full-size bed. TV is in a common sitting area. No common... More

Spent two nights at the Glen Iris Inn, a beautiful old inn inside Letchworth State Park, a hidden gem of a park. Dining was exquisite - 5 star. Early morning coffee perfect. No elevator so you need to be able to carry luggage up stairs. No cell phone coverage, no Wifi. Staff professional, friendly, personable. Be aware smoking is permitted... More
