Bethlehem …the name invokes images of Biblical times in the Mideast: a donkey carrying a pregnant virgin, which unwittingly unleashed all the holy schitte that has unfolded in that region over the last 20-plus centuries ~ but now in PA shines on in the garb of a hulking, old steel mill in an East-American town that was once polluted beyond your wildest nightmares. Today’s Bethlehem in PA is quite different. Chic, artsy, quaint, historic, old-world, moving. Seated on a hillock above the river that flows through the City, the historic, quietly graceful grandeur of the Sayer Mansion speaks (yells ?) of the lifestyle that once flourished amongst these hills. Its original owner was the vice president and general manager of Bethlehem Iron Company, the aforementioned, former-coal-belching behemoth that rusts silently just a mile to the east, and is the unmistakable focal point of the surrounding landscape. The Sayre Mansion was built in the early 1850s, as a private home. It was occupied by that family till the owner’s death in 1907, and was beautifully restored and reincarnated in its current form as an excellent Bed & Breakfast that is featured on the National Register of Historic Houses of America. Located in the wealthy Fountain Hill neighborhood, it commands a wide view across the city and valley… and the rusting stacks once managed by its owner, which eventually became Bethlehem Steel…. Charming, intriguing. Bed: The Mansion has expansive, well-appointed and luxurious rooms: 22 “rooms” and 1 “suite”, on the two upper levels, all of which show no sign of the traditional hotel room. They reflect the comfort and grandeur of a luxury home, which lulls one into feeling they are in their own home, only better. Heck, they have a Tesla charging station onsite: which speaks of the clientele they cater to. We were there in late winter, and managed to just afford a room (#24) on our budget. And the size of that room explains why it was affordable: a bit smaller, though with a comfortable sitting “nook” that overlooks the front garden ~ and aforementioned ex-smoky rust-stacks. And a small, well maintained, adequately fitted and clean en-suite bath with a shower stall, featuring well maintained, antique tile floors. The best room in the house, though, is the Conservatory, located on the third floor, which features a fantastic, glass greenhouse roof over its entirety…. Just stunning. (I’d have a hard time sleeping there without blinders, though.) Breakfast: wow ! Just great… really !! A hearty, unlimited buffet with lots of fresh fruit, juices, breads, pastries, eggs and meats to heap onto your pile, and also a selection of hot, fresh omelets, or preparations made to order, and jug-loads of fresh coffee. I do remember my coffee was good, but not hot enough. But a great way to start the day. All in all: a very pleasant, comfortable two nights…. an excellent establishment. Probably a bit North of the median, but if one has the ability ?

The Sayre Mansion Inn at Christmas was very nice. Decorations well done. Could feel the Christmas spirit. We spent one night. This was our first experience stay at a B&B. Each room is different. Ours was nice with plenty of room. Enjoyed that it had been updated but still had the original feel to it. Room was clean and comfortable. Had a small issue with the tv Nice location with views of the city and river. Did enjoy the included breakfast in the morning. Staff was friendly and helpful.

We had a great time. The breakfast was excellent (creme brulee french toast et al). The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Room was comfortable. The train can be kind of loud at night but it wasn't a big deal.

We enjoyed our stay at the Sayre Mansion Bed and Breakfast. Beautifully decorated for the season. Our room was spacious, comfortable, and quiet. We visited the Bethlehem craft fair and attended the Moravian Church’s Christmas concert on Saturday. The Sayre offers delicious to order breakfast choices, rather than a breakfast buffet, which was a pleasant surprise. Friendly and helpful staff. Only suggestion is that they need new coffee mugs. Ours cups had chips on the rims. They are part of a set of dishes - probably time to order new dishes!
