Bradford, PA 16701
Tucked away in the northwestern forests of Pennsylvania, a 1280-acre private estate awaits your discovery. Miles of trails lure the hiker and cross-country skier, streams and lakes entice the fisherman, tennis courts await play, and a trap and skeet range indulges the sportsman. During the summer a 60-foot pool shimmers in the sunlight, perfect for laps or lounging. And when the day is done, fireplaces and candlelit dinners satisfy the soul. Selected by Discerning Traveler as a romantic hideaway.
Surrounded on three sides by Pennsylvania's Allegheny National Forest, Glendorn is located in northwestern Pennsylvania, just outside the city of Bradford. Densely forested hills, up to 2100 feet provide shade and cool temperatures during the summer, colorful fall foliage during the fall and snow for winter activities. A short drive from Buffalo, Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Toronto, Glendorn is ideal for a quick getaway or extended vacation.
