We spend 3 days with friends in Fern Hall celebrating New Years and I am rating our experience. This is 100 years old mansion and it has lots of character and sometimes shows its age. Mary did everything to accommodate us and took care about all our requests. Rooms were spacious with luxurious linens, breakfast was wonderful. We had dinner...

We booked a Monday night stay while skiing over the recent holiday. The Inn is maybe a 15 minute drive from Elk Mountain. The staff could not have been more friendly and invited us to explore the property. We enjoyed a nice evening watching television next to the fire place and the next morning breakfast and coffee were waiting for...

Skiers beware. If you are about to book this place for your Elk Mountain ski trip, DON'T. On October 1, they turned into a BYOB establishment. They let their alcohol license expire, may or may not get it back. Beer, wine and alcohol are a minimum trip of 20 minutes away. And the nearest state-run liquor store is not open...

We are very sorry that you feel the way you do. Fern Hall has strived, yes, through its many incarnations to be an establishment that prides itself on quality food, exceptional service, and love of community. The fact that we have become a BYOB shows that. In very hard times you do what is necessary to keep business open and...

We have returned for a third time to Fern Hall and the ambiance is still warm and echoes another era. The food was quite good, as before, but this time we must have arrived just as the summer help of college students was training. I guess young people don't realize one needs silverware to eat. BUT other than an amusing...

Unusual cozy and elegant place with fantastic views. The staff is there to please you, very accommodating. A few highlights - Crystal Lake is a stone's throw away you can walk and swim, best to be there in the morning when the water is like glass. They provide free golf with your stay, but I was just content to have...

I have stayed at several places in NE PA and the Fern Hall has been the best by far. Absolutely lovely grounds, beautiful building and very friendly staff. While I didn't get the chance to experience all the amenities like the lake or golfing, I thoroughly enjoyed those that I did. If the weather permits I highly recommend dinner out...

My wife and I ate dinner on the outdoor patio. The atmosphere was nice. Took 15 minutes for a waitress to come to our table. She was pleasant and seemed accommodating.

I booked a room through Expedia and the picture showed a lovely room with a king size bed and a day bed. when I arrived that was not the room I got.

I'm very happy that the room situation worked itself out. Unfortunately bookings like that happen every once in a while, and being such a tiny place when one room is out of whack there isn't a lot we can do to fix it. As far as your restaurant experience, I am at a loss. That is not typical at Fern...
