Situated near the Allegheny National Forest, the Lodge at Glendorn (1032 West Corydon St., Bradford, Penn.) offers guests the ultimate cozy getaway. About 300 miles from the D.C. area, the lodge offers a multitude of amenities and activities on 1,300 acres of forested hills.
What to expect? Privacy, luxury service -- and the word of the day is quaint.
Past presidents have stayed here, and families return year after year. There are great summer activities we're trying not to think about right now (shore lunches on a secluded river island, fishing, drift boat tour, golf...) -- but in the winter, there's still plenty to do.
Case in point: Take a track tour (meaning, a Jeep with tank tracks), during which you can travel across any type of terrain and go just about anywhere with up to three passengers ($50/tour).
And don't forget to bring your helicopter; Glendorn is all clear for landing (if you prefer to land on a helipad). Most of us have helicopters, right?
Snowbunnies can enjoy ice skating, skiing, ice fishing and curling. Go sledding down Hideout Hill, take a fully guided snowmobile tour across the meadows or relax on a horse-drawn sleigh ride over the hills ($150/sleigh tour). And dinner bonfires at your cabin and s'mores roasting on the fire are available year-round.
Glendorn offers adventure packages as well as couples packages and three-night spa getaways. Get the details on all specials and packages here.
