Events at Glendorn

From nature-rich adventures to culinary ones, there’s always something to do, in every season, at our scenic Northwest Pennsylvania resort. Family-friendly activities, suitable for children of all ages, are part of the regular lineup of what’s available. Plus, we offer special events, such as wine tastings and cooking classes, perfect for couples and groups.

“Al Fresco ” Fridays :  “Dinner Under the Stars”

Formal dinner takes a fresh outdoor spin with a relaxed dinner “al fresco,” on the front terrace at the “Big House.”

On Friday evenings in the summer, Executive Chef Joe Schafer and his team bring their culinary talent to the terrace to create a tasty experience of grilled fare, using the bounty of summer’s best ingredients, including many from Glendorn’s own garden.

This is BBQ done the Glendorn way – from garden, to grill, to table!

The bonus? Views of lush greenery and trees in full bloom, while enjoying the summer rarefied mountain air as you sip on a your favorite summer cocktail and live music in the background.

Every Friday evening through the summer from late June through late August.

Summer Solstice Party – June 20, 2016

Your day of adventure at Glendorn doesn’t end when the sun goes down. After dinner,  we are heading up to “Conglomeration”—at 2,100 feet in elevation, it’s the highest Allegheny Mountain plateau on our 1500-acre property. Plan to be mesmerized by the star-filled night sky, while our staff points out the constellations. Spotting ‘Orion’s Belt’ is made all the more memorable with a roaring bonfire, s’mores, champagne and micro brews.

 85th Anniversary Celebration of the The Forest Hideout Cabin

The Forest Hideout cabin holds a lot of history on our property. Built in 1931, high up on the property, and decidedly away from the “Big House.”  The Hideout was a space of reprieve for the elder Dorns from their children. This very special spot is 85 years old this year, and the occasion will be marked with a celebration in the late summer. More details to be provided here soon.  Read more about the Hideout here.

Saturday Wagon Rides in October

Every Saturday in October, Glendorn hosts a cider press demonstration for guests to observe and participate. Once the apples are pressed, the cider can be consumed in its true form, or enjoyed as part of  one of Glendorn’s signature cocktails while riding along in our tractor-pulled wagon.

Guest Chef Series – Fall 2016/2017
