My wife and I traveled 60 miles to have a dinner date (with each other) at the Glen Iris Inn. The experience began as we entered the beautiful Letchworth State Park. A long and winding road led us to the Inn. The building is a very nicely maintained beautiful representation of hundred year old architecture. While the parking is limited... More

Sure, the Glen Iris rooms are small, they lack air conditioning, and there is no wifi, but the Glen Iris Inn is an experience. Letchworth's own house, complete with its wonderful carved staircase, its unmatched location next to Middle Falls, and it's front porch (perfect for evening penny whistle playing), my wife and I had a wonderful time away from...

Our room was approximately 100 square feet plus the bathroom--barely large enough to move around in and get our bags out of the way, and certainly not inviting enough to want to hang around in, especially given the absence of wi fi and virtual absence of cell service. The bathroom was modern and up to date, but the main room... More

Absolutely perfect! Desperate building but run by Glen Iris Inn. Nestled in some large pines and in view of huge waterfall! We left the window open all night and listened to the waterfall. Was MAGICAL! We did not want to leave! Room was VERY COZY and clean. Meals at the Inn we fantastic and could be charged to the room.... More

7/7/15 Glen Iris Inn, located in Letchworth State Park, NY within eye view of the middle waterfalls. Built as a private home in 1852 and later converted to an Inn in 1914. The Inn is only open from April to early November. Looking for an uncoupling experience, Glen Iris Inn “may” be for you. Letchworth State Park was voted the... More

We love the Glen Iris Inn! The restaurant is great! We picked a very small room ($99 a night) but we are so tired from biking 50 miles that all we wanted was a good bed. Letchworth State Park is fantastic.

I wasn't sure what to expect based on the reviews. Our family had a great breakfast at the Inn. Very nice atmosphere in the historic building, we had made reservations in advance. Great selection on the menu and very reasonable pricing. We had a variety of meals from omelettes to eggs Benedict and croissant with eggs. Home fries were great... More

We stayed here in June in one of their standard rooms ($105). Never again. The room was very small and barely able to walk around the twin beds and difficult finding space for our 2 pieces of luggage.. The bathroom was maybe 3' x 3'. There's no cell service, wi-fi, coffee or TV in the room. There's no elevator, so... More

This inn is beautiful (outside) and situated by the Middle Falls in the park. The park, the 3 falls and the gorge are awesome. To be fair, Glen Iris has been operating as an inn in the park since 1914, so it is OLD. However, staying here was the pits. We had a standard room for $105 (in May) with... More
