The day we visited Letchworth State Park, there was a beautiful late afternoon outdoor wedding taking place at the Glen Iris Inn.

White chairs faced the gorge, which would serve as a backdrop for the ceremony, and a harpist welcomed arriving guests with lilting strains of music.  In  back of the Inn, near the flower gardens, a large white tent was set for dinner and dancing after the ceremony.

The Glen Iris Inn is the former country estate of William P. Letchworth, and overlooks the middle falls.  It has welcomed guests since 1916 and offers 12 lovely standard guestrooms and 4 suites, all recently renovated and air-conditioned.

The Cherry Suite, with its private porch overlooking the gorge, master bath with whirlpool, and sitting area would make a lovely bridal suite.

Should your guests exceed the number of rooms at the Inn, accommodations may also be available within the park at Pinewood Lodge, Caroline’s Cottage, The Stone House, or The Chalet.

Although I have never had the opportunity to dine at the Glen Iris Inn, I understand the food is wonderful, and their extensive wedding menu offers diverse options that include everything from traditional sit-down dining to dinner and picnic buffets.

The Glen Iris Inn is located at 7 Letchworth Park in Castile, NY.  To contact the Inn for information, call (585) 493-2622.
