The Lodge at Glendorn, 1000 Glendorn Dr, has proven once again that it is Bradford’s hospitality “gem,” according to AAA East Central. It has maintained this celebrated designation consecutively since 1996.

“Travelers can rest easy knowing that Four Diamond hotels consistently exceed the expectations of AAA inspectors,” said Jim Lehman, president of AAA East Central. “These establishments are committed to providing every guest with a personalized experience and attentive service in comfortable, high quality surroundings.”

On a forested 1,300-acre estate, this lodge specializes in rustic luxury with fresh flowers in your room upon check-in and homemade cookies, beverages and wood for your fireplace refreshed daily.  The spacious rooms vary in size and layout, but all feature warm colors, restored antique furnishings and incredibly lush bedding.  All of the cottages feature beautiful views of the grounds, as well as patios, grills and fire pits.  Additional activities included in your resort fee include canoeing, kayaking, paddleboarding, snowshoeing, biking and fishing.

The Lodge at Glendorn is part of a select group of hotels in North America. This year, there are 1,676 Four Diamond hotels.  Hotels at this level, just 6.1 percent of AAA Inspected & Approved hotels, are an exclusive group. They must be refined and stylish with upscale physical attributes, extensive amenities and a high degree of hospitality, service and attention to detail.


For more than 80 years, AAA has used professional inspectors to conduct anonymous, in-person property evaluations.  AAA offers the only rating system using comprehensive, on-site professional hotel and restaurant evaluations using published guidelines weighted by member priorities.  With a far greater inventory than any other rating entity, AAA’s rating system covers the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean.

The AAA inspectors who assign these ratings have a wide range of hospitality experience – their resumes include stints as hotel managers and food and beverage experts – that gives them an authoritative perspective. Inspectors provide an unmatched first-person, on-site view of emerging trends, which includes the continuing evolution of technology to elevate the guest experience.
