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

We only had a short amount of time to spend at Letchworth State Park. We had heard about the Glen Iris Inn from a friend and thought we should see if a room was available. We were in luck and we were able to book for a room for one night. The inn is in a valley near the Middle... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at Letchworth Park! It is amazingly beautiful! And the Pinewood Lodge was a nice treat! Extremely clean, well appointed with everything you need. Amazing for a state run facility! The microwave and fridge made a real difference. the meals at the Glen Iris were very good, but if you want to save a little... More

We stayed at the pines which is rather rustic but clean. We had dinner at the inn and it was fabulous. The service was attentive and food was excellent.The pines are a very short walk to the inn so everything is very convienent. The grounds at the inn are beautiful and view of the falls perfect. We spent quite awile... More

My husband and I stayed at the Glen Iris Inn at Letchworth State Park for our 33rd wedding anniversary. We’ve stayed here quite a few times over the years to celebrate our anniversary, and, as usual, we weren’t disappointed this time! This is an excellent place to stay, as the Inn is historic and is located right at the middle... More

This is a wonderful place to stay. The Inn is a historic inn and is within a minute of the middle fall area of the park. As such, its a great place to stay as well as to celebrate special events such as weddings. While there is no elevator, the stair case was charming and we packed so we needed... More

We actually stayed not at the Inn itself, although that's where you make reservations. It wasn't clear to us that we were not actually staying at the Glen Iris, but rather at The Pines - a motel-like building a short distance away. The room was clean, but not spectacular, fridge, full size coffee maker and microwave, rollaway bed, double bed,... More

we stayed at the Pinewood Lodge which is in connection with Glen Iris Inn. What a perfect place. Quiet and peaceful and away from the crowd. We had a picnic table and fire ring to use. Started a nice fire and had our delicious s'mores. We sat and watched the falls until night time when the falls we're lite up....so... More

We actually stayed in the Pinewood Lodge. Our room was smaller than most in the building, but it was ground floor (all there is) - which is important to us. The Pinewood Lodge is just up the hill from the Glen Iris Inn, so you can walk to your meals, if you so desire. The place is clean, fairly quiet... More
