My husband booked two nights at the Glasbern for a little getaway. The atmosphere was nice and the room was clean, but that’s about it. We ended up cutting our two night stay down to one and here’s why: We had a dinner reservation at 7:30. The lady at the front desk called to see if we wanted to move our reservation up to 6:00 since they had an opening. No big deal. We went down to the bar and had a couple of drinks before dinner. When we went upstairs to the dining room for our reservation, they told us we had to stay downstairs by the bar because of the dress code. We didn’t realize there was one, but we weren’t dressed sloppy by any means. I had a dress on and my husband had on jeans, a nice shirt and sneakers. Another gentleman who was seated in the dining room was wearing similar attire. Downstairs by the bar was empty. The dining room upstairs only had two other couples eating. My husband asked if he went to the room to change if we could sit upstairs and he was told no. Again, it’s not like the dining room upstairs was packed. 10 minutes later we were told by one of the staff members that the manager said we could be moved upstairs to the dining room. Now for the food: we ordered the crab and shrimp cocktail appetizer. For $19 it was nothing special. Pretty flavorless. We both got the duck for dinner which was over $30. Again, nothing special, no flavor, mediocre at best. You’d think for the price of the food and their strict dress code the service and food would be amazing but it was sorely lacking. We were pretty turned off by the place at this point but didn’t want to leave right away since we’d been drinking. When we got back to the room later there was a note saying sorry about the miscommunication regarding the dress code. It’s a new policy that hasn’t been 100% enforced. They gave us a $75 gift card and said they hoped to see us in the future. So if the dress code hasn’t been 100% enforced why was it so strictly enforced with us? Why did they say no when my husband asked if we could move to the basically empty dining room if he went to get changed? We stayed the night and quickly left the next morning. Other than the nice aesthetic this place has nothing to offer. We’d never stay here again.

So, I have stayed here more than a dozen times the last 15 years and Introduced multiple friends to the spot including my friends who booked both a 50th birthday and their daughter’s wedding here. Months before the wedding we called at least 8 times to book a room and no one answered. We had booked here before with several different couples and knew that unanswered callls and ignored voice mail messages was common, So, we kept trying. Just about to book an alternative hotel, the bride’s mother offered to book rooms for several wedding guests who had the same experiences. I’ve stayed in just about every room on the property and was surprised to find m, upon my arrival, that I was booked in a $375 a night room. I was familiar with the exact room having stayed in it several times before. I asked the registrar why I was not in the Packhouse at the wedding guest rate and she assured me that this room I was in was less expensive. This of course was not true as I had stayed in the exact room several times before. She also asked if I “wanted to have breakfast” and insisted that we pick a seating time. Although I did indeed want the breakfast that came with the $375 a night room, I had never before been asked to commit to a meal time. The wedding food and experience was less than stellar. Moving to cocktail hour I was offered a short rib, it was so dry I was choking by the time I was served at the bar. The remainder of the appetizers were reheated frozen items. The salad was bland and salmon moist but also tasteless. I dropped my fork on the floor and let the server know. She picked it up from the floor and set it on my plate. The desserts were nicely presented but dry snd also tasteless. Having eaten dinner and breakfast her numerous times I was looking forward to seeing what they could do for a wedding, I was not impressed.

Loved everything about this place. The grounds were gorgeous, the room was very nice, restaurant was great - the breakfast offered a ton of choices and dinner was delicious! We had a lot of fun playing pickle ball and enjoying the outdoor pool. Staff were friendly and helpful. We can’t wait to return!

We stayed at Glasbern and loved it. Everyone made us feel welcome and went above and beyond to see that we were happy. It was nice walking around checking the ponds and beautiful landscaping. Before dinner we enjoyed a secluded spot by the pond for a glass of wine. Dinner was exceptional! Everything was fresh and delicious. Our room was clean and comfortable. It was nice trying out a sleep number bed. Breakfast was also marvelous! The warm blueberry scones were delicious along with the fresh ingredients in our omelet and frittata. It’s nice that the tips are included. The wait staff were excellent. We will definitely treat ourselves and go back. It felt like we were in the middle of the country not just a few minutes from the highway.

My husband I just stayed at the Glasbern for our 15th Wedding Anniversary. We made a weekend of the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail and Distilleries. In Inn is just delightful. The staff was so accommodating and even built us a fire outdoors at one of their many fire pit locations. We enjoyed our in house dinner at the restaurant and breakfast was just divine! Everything is fresh and delicious. We spent one morning hiking the property trails and taking a dip in the pool. The in room shower is amazing! The atmosphere is very relaxed and filled with beauty and nature. The price may be more than other hotels in the area, but gratuity is all included and it offers a lit bit of luxury and a mid range price that made it perfect for our occasion.
