Hotels in Pennsylvania

Wake up to a vista of cornfields and gardens after a night at this family owned, five-bedroom inn on a 200-year-old farm.

Bradford was a boomtown in the state’s oil rush of the late 1800’s, and Clayton Glenville Dorn made a fortune extracting oil from long-abandoned fields (using a controversial method similar to fracking). Glendorn was the “oasis in the woods” created for his family in 1929.

Visiting devotees of the American architectural master, Frank Lloyd Wright, can spend the night in the 1957 Duncan House at Polymath Park, a 125-acre nature reserve in the Laurel Highlands just 17 miles south of the Wright-designed Fallingwater.

The entrance to this stately 299-room property is marked by six towering Ionic columns (it's a replica of the Pantheon, in Rome). Don't miss 10 Arts Bistro by chef Eric Ripert.

Stay within the ivy-colored walls of the Reynolds Mansion, built in 1885 by a banker and plush with sugar-sweet touches like cherub murals, spa tubs perched in the windows, and a billiard room inside a turret. Expect an intimate vibe: there are only six rooms spread throughout three stories.
