Events at Glendorn for 2018
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 yoga 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 Kate Bergevin and her 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 June through late August. Weather permitting.
Saturday Morning Yoga Session
Join us each Saturday morning for a complimentary group yoga session. The sessions are held at Bondieu Lake or if inclement weather, our Playhouse. Class size is limited and sign-up can be made by calling our Reservations staff or by completing your pre-arrival Concierge form.
Labor Day Weekend – September 1- 3, 2018
Savor the last long weekend of the summer season in traditional Glendorn fashion. Sunday September 3rd, 2018 Labor Day will be celebrated with a Lake Bondieu buffet dinner, live music, and a fireworks show.
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. Glendorn’s Signature Whoppie Pies will also be served.
Expert Pumpkin Carving demonstration on Saturday October 20th, 2018
The Holidays at Glendorn
Thanksgiving Holiday – November 22, 2018
Giving thanks whether gathering with family, or friends who’ve become family, is the central theme of this celebration – a favorite among the annual holidays for many.
