“If I didn’t own Valley Rock Inn, I would tell my friends to stay at Glenmere Mansion.”
Notes from the website: Glenmere was built in 1911, as the country retreat of industrialist Robert Goblet, by the leading architects of the day, Carrère and Hastings. Glenmere was originally fashioned as a 35-room Tuscan villa with a central open cortile and majestic interior details, including marble-columned porticoes and sweeping interior and exterior staircases. A painstaking restoration now returns Glenmere to its original magnificence, with flowing rooms and broad terraces all centered on the refurbished cortile. Original architectural details have been preserved throughout, and the landscape once more offers panoramic views of the surrounding hills and tranquil Glenmere Lake. The formal gardens are a particular delight. Today, Glenmere is a luxury escape, ready to host the contemporary guest in modern comfort while offering an irresistible opportunity to turn back the pages of time to a more graceful, gracious way of living.
