Outstanding service, beautiful space and delicious food! Loved every moment of our stay. The safety precautions they had in place allowed us to feel comfortable in our room and in public spaces. The staff were all incredible, no detail was overlooked, and we were always greeted by name.

Want to feel like you’re at a plush , most charming , most luxurious Tuscan style mansion without having to travel to Tuscany ? Then this is your place . Given that covid is prohibiting our travel to Europe , this was the next best thing if not even better , dare I say . This resort and spa is immaculately manicured with every inch of its several acre grounds , just perfectly appointed and incredibly tasteful . It’ll blow your mind away - every room , every seating and dining area not to mention the guest rooms !! The all marble bathrooms will bring you to tears of joy and that moorish style porcelain hand painted sink is just stunning . No picture will do this place justice . You have to go in person to experience this 10 star luxury resort . Don’t get me started on the friendliest most service oriented and best trained staff . Even the doorman Trevor who greets you is polished and incredibly sweet . The sommelier Christian , only 3 days on the job and I could spend pages just talking about his service and how much he bent backwards helping to make our dinner the most memorable ever . Pamela who helped me with the behind the scenes stuff and our reservation plus everything leading up to our stay was incredibly thorough , professional and just beyond amicable . Linda who gave us a tour of the property was absolutely wonderful and a breath of fresh air from the second we met . Literally felt like I’d known her for years . The swimming pool area surrounded with beauty from every angle entertained us beautifully . Nothing about our stay was less than perfect . Thank you for a most incredible stay . And kudos to the owners who have done a remarkable job to say the least with the restoration of this historical mansion and obviously the upkeep and most detail oriented operations of this magical place .

Glenmere Mansion! Just an hour northwest of NYC, is such a treat. Expensive, yes, but this restoration of a Tuscan-style villa estate is special. You feel like you are in a home where the host has paid attention to every detail of the furnishings, decor, and gardens. Creature comforts abound. I compare it to Villa Spalletti Trivelli in Rome in that regard. But the Glenmere also has a great chef, and fantastic food, from marvelous pancakes, omelettes, breads, and burgers, to sophisticated chicken, fish, and meat dishes. A freshly made corn chowder, calamari in a spicyish tomato sauce served in a mini earthenware bowl. Well selected wines. You eat in a courtyard, the supper room, by the pool, so many nice and quiet spots. Croquet, bocce court, tennis, walks around the property, the lovely terraces, and the villa itself, are all well-maintained and beautiful. The staff was wonderful as well. Everyone wears a mask at all times, tables everywhere are at least six feet apart. The best parts for me are the friendly, attentive staff, and how tranquil Glenmere is. The resort does not allow children, and it attracts people who are respectful of the peaceful atmosphere. In addition, when someone is celebrating a special occasion with a group, Glenmere has a private dining room as well as private terrace areas, We will definitely return.

My husband and I have been patrons of Glenmere Mansion for years. If you are seeking an excellent meal, there is no better for miles around. The main dining room is pure elegance, the menu perfection, and the wine selection superb. Because we are local, we often eat at the tavern where General Tso's Cauliflower is one of our favorites. The manager is so knowledgeable and makes a killer spiced mule. Although we are not guests who sleepover, the staff is so welcoming. From the valets who welcome us to the main greeter, we are made to feel so special. After-dinner drinks in the library in front of the fire is a lovely way to end the evening. If I could give this review six stars, I would.

Glenmere is the perfect balance of gracious hospitality and decadent surroundings. You arrive and quickly go into relaxation mode, as the staff is attentive, the rooms beautifully detailed and the food delicious. The spa is a special treat with a beautiful relaxation area replete with berry parfaits and technicians who are incredibly adept. Dinner in either the supper room or tavern are both excellent, with trendy but accessible offerings. A well-made cocktail or perfectly chosen bottle of wine completes the experience. Head to Glenmere for a quick getaway in a place that feels worlds away but is very close to NYC.
