The Story

Enjoy luxury accommodations at the Orvis-endorsed Lodge at Glendorn for your Pennsylvania fly fishing adventure. 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 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. At the end of your fishing day, 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.

Originally designed as a family retreat, The Lodge at Glendorn is happy to boast 16 distinct accommodations, most of which are set apart as standalone cabins. From private cabins with outdoor fire pits to the all-redwood Main Lodge’s convenient rooms and suites, there’s something for everyone in our luxuriously private Pennsylvania getaway.

All accommodations are furnished with fine monogrammed linens, towels and Molton Brown bath products. Additional features include cable television, iron/boards, hairdryers, and cd-players. Twice daily housekeeping is complete with turndown service, complimentary bottled water, soda, tea, coffee and Glendorn’s baked fresh chocolate chip cookies.


Open year-round.


Brown, brook, and rainbow trout (year around), muskellunge, northern pike and smallmouth bass (spring, summer, and fall) native brook trout (spring, summer and fall).


Allegheny Mountain Region of Northwestern Pennsylvania. Five miles of privately-managed brooks and streams including two miles of Class "A" Wild Trout Stream. Five stillwater lakes on site and access to the Allegheny River Tailwaters and Clarion River for drift boat excursions.

Typical Weather:

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 winter snow levels up.

Winter: November 42/30 F, December 34/16, January 30/11, February 32/13, March 40/21, spring Spring: April 50/33, May 62/40

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun, funny, helpful and knowledgeable This trip was ice fishing only so we didn’t use a fly rod. Last time (August 2020) we did and as soon as I came home I purchased a Recon rod. Can’t wait to use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trip of a lifetime! We had the best stay at the Lodge at Glendorn. My husband went pheasant hunting with Larry and Keegan, and skeet shooting with Shane. All were professional, helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. Thanks for a wonderful experience!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fly Fishing Excursion at Glendorn Lodge My fly fishing excursion with Shane Appleby is best described as a memory that will last. Shane is not only a world class fisherman, but a master class instructor. I am an experienced fisherman, and Shane provided me with casting techniques which I will utilize for the rest of my fishing career. The Orvis three weight outfit Shane provided was delightful to use, and I've already added one to my Christmas list. I would highly recommend Shane to both novice and experienced anglers who are seeking the joy of tight lines.

Charles Rini, our activity guide, was truly one of the best people i have met. He was kind, patient and ensured everyone in our group had fun. It was a perfect weekend!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a wonderful getaway! We loved the indoors and outdoors of this lovely property! What a joy being at this location during this pandemic! It actually made us forget about all we are dealing with - politics, pandemic, working from home. The stress was gone the day after we arrived with a wonderful fishing outing, even though it was a cold and rainy day!
