    The Grounds

    Glasbern Inn grew from humble beginnings, and the old farm buildings that are on the grounds have been renovated to include many of the facilities available to guests. The character and original architecture has been kept while the inside of the buildings have all modern upgrades. Glasbern Inn is as much a destination as it is a country inn and restaurant.

    Guests to the property can experience:

    • Farm Walking Trails

    • Meeting Rooms & Event Space
    • Farm-to-table dining in the onsite restaurant & Pub
    • Outdoor pool with seating area
    • Greenhouses
    • Full spa and fitness center
    • Patios for Weddings and Outdoor events
  • Farm-to-Table Fine Dining in Pennsylvania

    We invite you to dine either in our Main Dining Room or the Pub any night of the week for a fantastic Lehigh Valley Farm-to-Table experience. These are two distinct spaces within a few steps of each other, though many of our guests choose to enjoy both, with a drink in the Pub prior to being seated in the Great Room. View the menu here. Reservations are required for both the Great Room and the Pub at our Lehigh Valley restaurant. Selections from our wine list and full bar may be ordered in either room.

    Our Farm-to-Table Philosophy: What does "farm-to-table" mean?

    From a broad enough vantage point, nearly every restaurant is farm to table. But not all farms are created equal. When referring to farm-to-table cuisine, "to" can represent all sorts of distances. At our Lehigh Valley inn and restaurant, we've shrunk that "to" as far as it can go -- a large majority of the food you enjoy here is the food we raise here on our sustainable farm in Pennsylvania.

    We know the source because we are the source.

    Sourcing of ingredients is the primary challenge facing a Chef who aims to deliver fine dining. At Glasbern, though, sourcing is a delight rather than a challenge. Sourcing means sizing up our Scottish Highland cattle as the seasons change, going out the kitchen's back door into the herb garden with a basket, sitting down with our gardener to plan our menus and planting schedule, raising free-range chickens, and giving our Berkshire pigs time to fatten up nice and slow, the old-fashioned way. Only letting our Katahdin sheep graze on grass.

    Sharing the Local Abundance

    Of course, we can't raise everything we serve here at our country inn in Pennsylvania. (Despite our best intentions, there won't be any sea bass coming out of these ponds.) And naturally, our available farm products vary with the seasons. That's why we work with trusted and sustainable local purveyors such as River & Glen and D'Artagnan to help us fill in the missing pieces. We buy the mirror image of what we raise. When you dine with us, you'll know what we've raised here on the farm by the asterisks on the menu. Yes, we're proud of what we make. But our real joy comes from sharing it with you.

    Dinner at Glasbern Inn

    The Main Dining Room at our restaurant near Allentown, PA, seen above, features a 28-foot cathedral ceiling, fieldstone walls, fireplace, and candles. The structure is part of the historic 19th-Century barn, with exposed original beams and ladders.

    Join us here Sunday through Friday for À la Carte Lehigh Valley fine dining and on Saturday for our Prix Fixe special.

  • History of Glasbern

    The history of Glasbern dates back to 1787, when the original tract of land was warranted to Melchoir Siep. The first building on the land was the original spring house that Joel Mohr lived in as early as 1870. He lived in the second floor of the spring house which offered rudimentary accommodations. As evident by Mohr Lane which runs east –west behind Glasbern, Joel Mohr was influential in the early development of the region. Copies of the Siep warrant & Mohr deed along with an early map and picture are in the lower hallway of the main barn. He sold the property in 1896 to Rosa and Elmer Shoemaker. Rosa and Elmer lived at the property for 16 years until they sold it in 1912 to William A. Kirschner. William Kirschner lived in the original farmhouse and worked the farm for the next 59 years till his death in 1971. The property remained vacant until 1985, when Al and Beth Granger purchased it. With the purchase of the property, the Grangers added running water and indoor plumbing in the farmhouse. They lived there while the barn was restored into an inn. Since the south side of the barn was all glass, Beth came up with “Glasbern”, old English for glass barn. The first guests arrived in December 1985.

    Many of the original buildings remain today and have been meticulously renovated to accommodate visitors. The original tractor shed is now the warm and inviting Carriage House. Here the Granger’s experimented with fireplaces and whirlpools. Their popularity led to the inclusion of these upgrades into many of the 38 accommodations. After completing the Carriage House the innkeepers turned their attention to the Gate House. This was originally nothing more than a garage that master carpenter Bill Huber rehabilitated to first class accommodations. The exposed original rafters made of tree limbs stand as a testimony to the vision, skill and determination of early craftsman. The Garden Cottage, the last of the original outbuildings was made ready for guests in 1995.

    Local architect, Frank Moyer interpreted our sketchy dreams into blueprint form and provided the framework for artisans to follow. Behind the Main Barn, the grounds developed gradually from open space to a large framed tractor shed built which was against an earthen wall. This facility is now our Lodge which houses our conference rooms and social banquet rooms. To the west, at the far end of the Carriage House parking lot, a barn from another Lehigh County farm has been re-constructed. Similar to a classic barn raising, only with a crane, the Stables were erected. Perched on the hillside above the Stables you will find the Pack House. A marriage of two unique barns, badly in need of relocation and refurbishment was able to produce 12 guestrooms and private conference room. Routinely, this space is reserved for corporate off-site retreats and wedding guests.

  • The Farm

    Grass-fed beef and lamb, pastured chicken, Berkshire pork, and more. Come see (and taste!) sustainable agriculture in action.

    In 2005, farming started again at Glasbern, reviving an excellent parcel of farmland that had laid fallow for about 35 years. When you dine here, it'll be very clear why the original German farmer chose to carve a farm out of this particular hillside. There's something special about this land.

    Encompassing over 130 acres, our farm practices sustainable agriculture to raise healthy vegetables, cattle, sheep, hogs, turkeys, and chickens for use in our restaurant. We invite our guests explore the farm's pastures, gardens, and greenhouses while observing the daily work that mirrors the changing of the seasons.

    We have a long-term commitment to the health of the land, and practice rotational grazing of our animals. The herb garden, greenhouses, and large cultivated beds provide fresh heirloom produce year-round for our kitchen. These seeds haven't been cross-bred and -- you be the judge -- are known for superior flavors. Glasbern’s flower gardens flourish under the loving cultivation of Horticulturalist Pamela Ruch, and in turn lend an atmosphere of love to the Inn.

    We're not "certified organic", even though many of our practices are. Rest assured you won't find any pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics, or hormones at Glasbern or in any of the food we raise and serve.
    Fruits and Vegetables

    Besides our large outdoor vegetable plot, two wood-heated greenhouses keep Glasbern produce on the table year-round. These “high tunnel” greenhouses protect our raised beds during early spring and late fall to extend our growing season into the winter months. Crops are grown in the ground and in hanging structures, yet are protected from temperature fluctuations and light frost. In addition, “high tunnels” reduce wind and moisture fluctuation, and allow us to control pests through all natural means.

    We invite you to join us in experiencing the delights from our pastures and garden firsthand in Glasbern's restaurant.

    Animals

    On Glasbern Farm, we use rotational grazing to raise lean, healthy Scottish Highland cattle and Katahdin sheep. In addition to producing excellent grass-fed beef and lamb, rotational grazing preserves and enhances our surrounding landscape. It fertilizes it without fertilizers -- when you stay here on our farm, you'll notice it doesn't very much smell like a farm. Again, a meal at Glasbern is all that's needed to demonstrate the value of sustainable agriculture.

    To get more specific about our rotational grazing, Glasbern Farm uses a small paddock rotation system, the sort used on Joel Salatin's Polyface Farm, made famous in Michael Pollan's The Omnivore's Dilemma. Cows and sheep graze in small, fenced sections of the farm each day. Like people, cows and sheep are picky eaters - when put in a pasture, they'll overgraze some grasses and under graze others. Over time, this leads to poorer grass quality and less total forage. Small-scale rotational grazing allows us to manage both pasture growth and weed eradication, and maximizes the regrowth of forage prior to re-grazing. As an added bonus, rotational grazing incorporates manure as a natural pasture fertilizer and minimizes erosion through the development of nice, thick root systems.

    Being grass-fed, the cattle at Glasbern Farm are leaner, with better tasting and more nutritious beef. The sheep are springier and healthier, with better tasting meat. Tramping up and down the hills all day builds great muscle! But again -- we'll let you be the judge.
    A Pennsylvanian Farming Tradition

    Pennsylvania has a rich history of farming, and Glasbern is proud to share in this great tradition. When you stay with us we invite you to visit our neighbors the Rodale Institute, just a few miles down the road, one of the pioneers of the worldwide organic farming movement.

  • Guest Spa Services

    $90 for 60 minutes
    Reiki is an ancient form of healing done with the client fully clothed. This form of hands-on energy healing brings the body into balance while supporting the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
