The Lodge at Glendorn, PA

Orvis-Endorsed Fly-Fishing Lodge in Bradford, Pennsylvania.

The Lodge at Glendorn, PA

Overview

Ensconced in more than 1,500 acres bordering the Allegheny National Forest in northwestern Pennsylvania, The Lodge at Glendorn, designed in the style of the grand family camps of yore, has been a fly-fishing destination since 1929. Adventure is in our nature. Explore miles of private brooks and ponds on property, or venture nearby to float the Clarion or Allegheny Rivers in a drift boat. You’ll be served only the best of shore lunches on a secluded river island. With a recent property acquisition—home to Spring Creek, designated as a Class ‘A’ Wild Trout Stream by the state of Pennsylvania—we have expanded our fly-fishing offering. This exquisite section of stream has been left in its natural state: pure and pristine. The stream has been blessed with populations of wild brown trout and brook trout. Seldom seen, these trout have grown to be wary and will humble even the most skilled fly angler. Take a short jaunt to the famed tributaries of Lake Erie to tackle tens of steelhead in a day, knowing that when you arrive back at Glendorn to your private cabin or suite, our staff will be ready to serve you gourmet cuisine, paired with fine wines. Award-winning culinary. The Forest Spa. Fuller Brook Outfitters. Top it all off with the very best fly fishing, shotgun sports, hunting, and exploring, and it’s no wonder Glendorn is such a lure for groups, families and individuals, who return again and again to rejuvenate in a truly unique environment.

Typical Weather by Season

Bradford has a humid continental climate with long, snowy winters and warm, sometimes humid summers. Late fall/early winter is especially snowy due to heavy amounts of lake effect snow from Lake Erie, and to a lesser extent, Lake Ontario. Lake effect snow during cold snaps in early spring also helps bring snowfall totals up.
