Just completed our second stay at the Glass House and couldn't have been more pleased. Comfortable, quiet, and clean. Simple breakfast to start the day and convenient to just about everything! Easy in, easy out. Pleasant people all around.

My family and I enjoyed our stay at Glass House Inn very much. The staff was super friendly and helpful. My 10-year-old really enjoyed the pool. Breakfast got us all off to a great start. The location is right off 832 and convenient to Presque Isle, Waldameer and The Tom Ridge Center. It was nice to support a family run... More

The room was clean and well maintained. Only had one small problem, the key was hard to pull out of the lock. As soon as I mentioned the problem, it was fixed. Although we did not have time to use it, the swimming pool was also very clean with plenty of beach chairs around it. The staff were very courteous,... More

We're from the UK and stayed here whilst travelling from Indianapolis to New York City. Very conveniently placed for the beautiful Presque Isle State Park and the children particularly enjoyed the swimming pool in the parking lot. The staff were great and whilst fabric of the building was a little tired around the edges, the experience more than made up... More

We utilized Glass House Inn for a Thanksgiving trip to Boston when we were one of the two reservations. We returned again this summer. Enjoyable and reasonable facility a little dated but quaint and economical. Good referral for local Mexican restaurant El Canelo.
