Our History

The Lodge at Glendorn is a family story. One that celebrates the magical moments of loved ones creating lifelong memories together. It’s the story of how a close-knit family created a cherished destination. It begins with C. G. Dorn, fondly known as Bondieu, who purchased the property in 1927 as a retreat for his growing family. After decades of unforgettable vacations, the Dorn’s opened their beloved estate in 1995.

As new families fell in love with Glendorn, one family became instrumental in its future. When the magnificent estate became available in 2009, Cliff Forrest and his family made Glendorn their home away from home. As only the second owner of the property, Mr. Forrest set out to preserve the property’s wonderful history and natural surroundings as well as its excellent activities, cuisine and service. As the new owner, or should we say curator,  he’s generously invested in ongoing restorations and improvements to significantly enhance the resort experience for every guest.

Throughout the years, countless families, romance-seeking couples and groups alike have made their own history at The Lodge at Glendorn—returning year after year to escape from the demands of modern life and enjoy the beauty, peace and tranquility of this cozy getaway. Whether you visit with your children, friends or colleagues, you’ll foster a steadfast bond that is not soon forgotten.
