The Glendorn Story
April 27, 2016
For those of us whose travel plans are often inspired by food, it’s not enough to eat at fancy restaurants—we need more immersive experiences, starting with the hotels we select. For a gourmand, the right hotel offers a stay that orbits around food, whether it’s through farm tours, foraging excursions, or even capturing our own meals. Below, five properties that will satisfy every culinary craving.
In rural Pennsylvania, this Relais & Châteaux hotel is inspired by the family camps of yesteryear but outfitted with all of today’s luxury amenities. Guests who are interested in being totally involved in how their meals are not only prepared but also sourced can join chef Joe Schafer on fly-fishing, foraging, and even hunting excursions. Nearby Glendorn’s Fuller Brook is perfect for catching trout (brown, rainbow, et cetera) for that night’s meal, while an all-day upland bird-hunting can yield pheasant, grouse, and more. For something truly unforgettable, request to have dinner atop the Allegheny Plateau. The crystal clear night sky is perfect for stargazing—if you’re lucky, you can even see the Milky Way.
