At just 90 miles from New York City and an hour from Philadelphia, Lehigh Valley is just a short drive away from major Mid-Atlantic cities. When planning your next board retreat or small group meeting, consider escaping the hustle and bustle of big city life as you host your event at one of these venues. 

Just steps across the Delaware River on the border of Pennsylvania and New Jersey, you’ll find the Grand Eastonian Hotel & Suites. Tucked in Easton’s charming downtown neighborhood, this venue offers unique loft-style overnight accommodations, as well as a spacious meeting room. From the hotel, your guests will be able to easily walk to the fantastic nearby restaurants, catch a show at the State Theatre Center for the Arts, or shop the Easton Farmers’ Market - the nation’s oldest open air market. 

Travel east to Bethlehem’s SouthSide Arts & Cultural District where you’ll find the Sayre Mansion atop a hill, overlooking sights including the SteelStacks campus. As a Historic Hotels of America property, the Sayre Mansion has been artfully restored, its overnight rooms offering the perfect balance of historic charm and modern luxury. The Asa Packer Room on the inn’s lower level can accommodate smaller groups for productive board meetings. After business hours, your group can explore the many nearby restaurants or test their luck at the Sands Casino.

But perhaps you prefer to truly escape city life. Nestled in the countryside just minutes from Allentown, you’ll find the Glasbern Inn. Situated on a 150-acre working, sustainable farm, the Glasbern Inn offers picturesque accommodations alongside state-of-the-art meeting spaces. Enjoy a stroll along the trails that weave through the grounds and relax by the fire pits in the evening. The Glasbern Inn offers a full menu of locally-sourced ingredients, providing a seamless catering experience for your guests.
