I'm getting married on October 15, 2016. I live in NJ and everything is MAD expensive in my state (especially when you want an October wedding on a Saturday evening), so it was wonderful to find everything I was looking for at a much more reasonable price just by crossing a bit over the PA border. This place is so unbelievable lovely! I've been working with Kathleen, and she's been nothing short of fantastic. She's incredibly responsive and helpful, plus she gives great advice (she's also been very patient even when dealing with my crazy parents). Definitely check this place out whether you're looking for something intimate or huge, or if you're just passing through the area and need a charming place to stay.

After having a few issues with the prior coordinator who ended up leaving while I was working with her, I couldn't have been more relieved when Kathleen stepped in. From the very start she was extremely responsive and on top of all the planning. She was able to answer all of my questions and give her own option on things when needed (which I truly appreciated, compared to other vendors saying "do whatever you want," Kathleen was more than willing to give her opinion which was great being that I never planned a wedding before so how am I suppose to know what looks good and works well?!). On the weekend of our wedding the Glasbern and Kathleen made sure everything was going as smooth as possible for us. With services to the bridal suite and driving me around on a golf cart so I didn't have to walk in my dress, my day-of wasn't nearly as hectic as one would think. The Lodge looked better than we could have ever asked. From setting the cocktail room up exactly how I imagined, to adding a blue table clothes with lace over it for our sweetheart table, it made it look that much nicer! The food was delicious, although we were a little disappointed there were so scallops hordourvs even though we had chosen them as an option, everything else made up for it in the end. Kathleen stayed throughout the evening and continually checked in to make sure all went well. It truly was our dream come true wedding and we couldn't have done it without Kathleen and the staff at the Glasbern. We both wish we could do it over again! I would highly recommend the Glasbern to anyone for the wedding. You can't beat the beautiful scenery and great lodge for both ceremony and reception.

We recently had a beautiful fall wedding at The Glasbern Inn. The location, venue, and food itself make this an amazing place to have a wedding. Our wedding was initially coordinated by Carrie, however after leaving midway through the wedding planning, Erica became our wedding coordinator. Erica was amazing the day of the wedding, always thinking of us, ensuring things were where they were supposed to be, and making sure it was a successful night. There were several mishaps, such as not having premium alcohol out despite paying for it, and the slideshow not playing, but Erica quickly redirected and fixed them immediately. All of the guest rooms were beautiful, and I can't say enough good words about our suite in the "Farmhouse." I did notice that there were several inconsistencies for our guests staying at the venue, such as charging them extra when checking in, trying to charge them additional fees, and upgrading some guests but not others. However, the included breakfast was the best I've ever had, guests are still talking about how beautiful our wedding was, and we can't wait to visit again for our anniversary.

It's truly a magical place...my new husband and I got married on 9.26.15 and everything was wonderful! We lucked out with incredible weather - a plus at such a beautiful outdoor venue. We first chose the Glasbern for their attention to local/organic food, and they did not disappoint. The food was delicious and everybody is so incredibly nice there!

We worked with Carrie first and then Erica. Erica is awesome - she's so SWEET and that girl works her tail off! I am a planner so I had a lot of detailed questions and she answered every one of them, and almost always the answers were the ones I wanted to hear. Whenever we wanted to make a small change or addition she made it happen, which I think is really what you want from your venue - flexibility! She set us up a meeting with the chef which was awesome so we were able to customize a few aspects of our food. We picked the horderves we wanted and some of the stations we had for cocktail hour. Everyone loved it! On our wedding day, Erica was there to help with whatever we needed and everything ran super smoothly.

The rooms are beautiful and rustic. There are a few quirks here and there that we heard, someone's tub jets were going on all night, there were issues with the hot/cold water temperatures. I'm sure they'll be fixing these issues soon though, because they seem to have a lot of people working around the grounds to make it look and function awesomely.
Some tips:
-I think the stables suites #36 is the best room there
-It may seem at times that it's hard to get the attention you need in the months leading up to your wedding. But, I found that it's best to be proactive and know that they really do their best to make all of your little requests come true. If you envision something unique for your day, it will most definitely become a reality. So just know that! And know that they do a lot of weddings and when your time comes they go out of their way for you!
-We loved renting out the whole place!

My wedding on July 1, 2015 was beautiful. The staff was just wonderful, especially Erica. She was just amazing, she was there the whole time making sure everything went perfect. When things got off track (nothing that was caused or due to the Glasbern) she sprung in to action and straightened it out. We can't thank her enough! The food was great , not like typical wedding food at all. The service was quick and responsive to my guests needs. Our wedding was great ! We are so glad we choose the Glasbern.

We had a beautiful wedding at the Glasbern! The food was great, the ceremony was beautiful, and everyone was very helpful! The biggest challenges were getting in contact with the wedding coordinators there and making sure that we knew that everything was in order. For example, we wouldn't get responses to emails and answers to our phone calls, so we didn't even have the opportunity to give the seating arrangement until 11pm the night before the wedding. Then the next morning it had disappeared again so as we were getting ready that was a bit stressful. Also, our ceremony was on site at 1pm and at 12pm no one had even started to set up the chairs! I think that overall the venue is beautiful and it was a great place to get married, but they definitely need to hire more wedding coordinators! They are so stretched because there are many weddings there, so if there were more coordinators that may have reduced some of the stress! Overall it was a beautiful day though and I couldn't ask for a more caring staff! Just be prepared for some organizational challenges.

The ceremony and reception spaces are great, with beautiful surrounding scenery, especially for a wedding with a rustic or country vibe. The food was absolutely delicious. Between when I signed the contract and the time of my wedding, the wedding coordinator transitioned to a new person, which led to a few small miscommunication instances and some confusion, but overall, both wedding cooridinators that I worked with, Carrie and Erica, were wonderful. The day of my wedding went so smoothly (from the set up all the way to the end of the night) and I didn't have to worry about a thing, even when 2 unexpected guests showed up and we needed to add spots and meals for them at the reception, Erica took care of it right away. We also stayed there that evening which was so lovely.

This is the perfect place to have your wedding. From the planning process to the actual wedding day, everything went perfectly. Carrie S. is the wedding coordinator, and let me tell you, we couldn't have asked for a better person to assist us through the process. Carrie is extremely friendly, organized, and professional. We planned our wedding for close to two years, and she was with us every step of the way. She ensured that all of our guests were satisfied, all of our details were followed through, and always answered questions promptly and thoroughly. She even gave us her cell phone and called/texted us on her day off. On the day of the wedding, she made us feel at ease, and ensured that everything went according to plan. Carrie will probably own this place one day, because she's just that good. It's rare to find someone in the service industry that is this accommodating.

Our reception was a blast. The food at Glasbern is top notch. The hors d'oeuvr were all perfectly cooked, and came out hot when they were supposed to be. The scallops were especially phenomenal, and people couldn't get enough of them. They had two bartenders were who really friendly and quick with drinks. One of my groomsmen got to know them on a first name basis. The dinner itself was delicious; all filets were perfectly cooked and tender, and the chicken had a sauce that everyone raved about. You never get the feeling like anything is mass-produced or that it tastes like "wedding food." No ice cream scooped mashed potatoes, salty brown gravy, or canned/frozen vegetables. The food is fresh, local, and well crafted.

Glasbern staff make you feel like you're at home and will go out of their way to do so, often without you even asking. Amazing.

My experience began with a different coordinator, and I was handed off to Carrie when she left. I took to a tour with Carrie and she was sweet, but I felt like I was asking a lot more than I was being told/offered. If I asked 5 questions (via email no less) I'd only get a response to 2. I was forever prompting her to completely answer me. I had a series of small issues that piled up but not enough space to detail them. The main one is below.

From the very start I informed Carrie that all of our guests were NOT local and would be traveling a significant distance (many from Canada) so we were encouraging everyone who could to arrive Friday evening. Our wedding was Saturday evening. We reserved the entire place for Saturday, and the ten required rooms for Friday, and we were told that our guests would have PLENTY of time to make their reservations for Friday because people not associated with the wedding cannot reserve a room until 90 days before their desired stay. She NEVER EVER EVER said "unless I book another event on Friday night and they reserve the rooms you need". Which is exactly what happened. NEVER in the MANY times I talked about our guests arriving Friday did she EVER offer that I could/should make Friday reservations. This other event made ours nearly impossible (between room availability, Check in/out times, ceremony start time, etc) and completely negated the reason we picked glasbern, which was to have our guests stay with us on site, not in another hotel and have to travel more. When we expressed how huge this problem was, we were only told to reference our contract. Absolutely no regard for the problems she caused or even a hint that anyone cared we might cancel our event due to the one signed after us. So we did cancel, with only 6mos to book a new place and replan. The only upside is the owner offered our (quite hefty) deposit back. Without carries incompetency to handle planning a wedding glasbern would have been perfect. Ps: check the lawsuit
