Beautiful scenery of the falls. Have stayed in the inn several times in the Beech suite and the Cherry suite. Beautiful old inn. Can be a little scary at night though. Lots of creaks and noises and it's rumored to be haunted.

We stayed at the inn for our 1 year anniversary. It was great! The food was awesome, the staff was amazing, and the inn was clean and cozy. They even decorated our cake from our wedding to make it even more special. A wonderful getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The history and scenic views were perfect!... More

Wife and I stayed at one of the Pinewood Lodge rooms for 2 nights during the Memorial Day weekend. For the rate of $140 per night, I thought it was a good value for the lodging, especially given its location, the convenient access to the park, and the proximity to the Middle Falls. Having read reviews about the rooms in... More

This year we decided to stay in one of the cottages instead of the main inn. It was much roomier, it had a television and a fridge, and you could park right outside of your room instead of walking up two flights of stairs with your luggage, The food was great as always!

We stopped here after a hike along the rim of the gorge. The outdoor chairs are available to those not wanting a full lunch, but would still like to enjoy the hospitality of the Inn. We ordered steak quesadillas and home made desserts. Everything was fantastic. The steak was tender, and the pie was delicious. Our service was outstanding, truly... More

Besides rooms @ Glen Iris, you can book cottages that hold 6-10. for our group of 6 we booked Caroline's Cottage for 5 nights the week before Memorial Day. It was a great stay and great location. While the Glen Iris is located at the middle falls, we were about 150 yds further away from the Glen Iris and fall.... More

THE best food! The French Onion soup was the best we have ever had!! The New England clam chowder was also awesome! Walking up to the Inn and looking out over the middle falls took our breath away. This is a stop that should be on everyone's bucket list ❤️

My wife and I stayed at the inn will visiting Letchworth State Park with friends. The place is old, original house is from 1859. We just had a room which was small but more than adequate. The library upstairs was available for lounging with friends & guests. Best part - the restaurant which is part of the same structure. The... More
