We stayed at the Sayre Mansion as a base to go to the Philadelphia Folk Festival. It was a perfect stay, with an easy check-in, a good room and a wonderful breakfast. We would definitely stay there again. I do not think that the B & B offers lunch or dinner but we did not check.
One of our favorite lodging. We've stayed 10 times over the years, each time in a different room. Every experience was consistently outstanding. Beautiful comfortable. Music and dining in Bethlehem is always a destination.
I thought this place was really special, a great value, maybe even a bargain. Clean, courteous, welcoming from the outset, staffed by friendly people, and a super-duper made-to-order breakfast with buffet items as well included in the room price. Victorian to the max, not my taste, but so relaxing. Absolutely felt like I was a guest in someones lovely home. Outdoor seating is to be savored, either on the veranda/porches or in the lawn weather permitting. My room - the last to be sold mind you - was a little small but clean and wonderful It's not often I can find nothing I want to see improved.. A great B&B vision, with great execution by the staff. OK, it's a little close to some traffic but I heard none of it. Oh...and the cookies and candy lying around to have with your coffee...priceless enjoyment for me. Discovered quite by accident, but what a superb experience for a very reasonable price. I'm going to try more of the'Select B&Bs around the country based on this experience, and they gave me a paper catalog of all of them. Quite special.
We absolutely loved our stay at the Sayre Mansion. Beautiful setting, lovely rooms, wonderful breakfast, and attention to details! It couldn't get any better. We will definitely stay again when we are in the area.
My boyfriend and I stayed in room 35 for our anniversary. It was a last minute decision that I'm so happy we made! We were able to make the reservation the night before with no problems. The room was adorable - charming with slanting ceilings and beautiful old windows. Our room was quiet and private. The bed was so comfortable that we returned upstairs for a short nap after the delicious breakfast (omelets with Swiss cheese, mushrooms, and fresh spinach with sides of bacon and toast, along with fruit, house baked pastries, coffee, tea and yogurt). The staff was friendly and helpful. We will definitely be coming back to the Sayre Mansion!
My husband and I stayed in the Conservatory. We are from Bethlehem and just needed a night to decompress away from life's turmoils. We chose the perfect place... What a gorgeous room! When we arrived, there was a summer rain storm -- perfect timing to just watch the storm from a beautifully decorated room. We cannot wait to return. (One word of caution -- there is a lot of noise from the street due to the windows of this room. This didn't bother us as we were so enthralled with the room. But if you think it might bother you, this is not the room for you.)
This Inn is close to all Bethlehem has to offer. Most within walking distance. The staff is knowledgable, friendly, and make every effort to make you feel like you're visiting an old friend. If you want a starched, antiseptic stay in Christmas City, well there is a Comfort Inn in town. If you want a place that you feel like home, away from home, the Sayre Mansion is your best bet!
Our stay at the Mansion was soothing, comfortable and most importantly included blissful sleep in the well endowed beds and linens. What a pleasant surprise to know that care had been taken to provide a bed that was lofty and a dream to sleep in. We will return and look forward to the delicious breakfast what we consider to be the most important meal of the day. Just a wonderful place to spend quality time.
The Sayre Mansion is very well run and pleasant place to stay. The quality of the breakfast is specially notable. The inkeepers get all the little touches right, from the afternoon wine selections to the books on the shelves in the room.
Great location--close to bars, restaurants, and everything you might like to do in Bethlehem. I love that you always smell cookies or bacon cooking in the kitchen--adds to the homey feel. Whitey was our server at breakfast, and he was so fun to talk to. He had great recommendations for things to do in the area.
Beautiful property outside and in. We stayed in room number 21 which was beautifully appointed, roomy and had great views. Huge room and the the private bath was perfect. Breakfast was amazing though the selection could have been made expansive. Close to the casino and some pretty good shopping. No complaints at all!
I booked the Conservatory as an overnight get away for our 10th wedding anniversary. The entire experience exceeded our expectations. The room was exceptional with it's three sided glass views of Bethlehem. We fell asleep to the Bethlehem star on the mountain, the half moon thru the trees and thousands of stars shining above us, and we woke up to the most amazing sunrise. The bed was more comfortable than ours, and that's saying a lot. The owners and staff were polite and professional. We were unable to stay for breakfast, but there were chocolates and cookies and tea available all day/night long, for a nice homey touch. I would definitely come back for another stay.
The hosts were so helpful and knew so much about the area, it made our short visit very special. We would love to stay there again and explore more of Bethlehem and the surrounding area. Joe & Carole East Aurora, NY
This is an upscale B&B with large, comfortable rooms. The bed was exceptional and we were able to reserve one of their rooms with a king bed. All of the Inn's furnishings are exceptional with nice touches everywhere (for example, coffee is available until 5:00 PM with small pastries while tea service is 24 hours). The dining & common seating areas (inside and outside) were available at all times to the guests. The morning breakfast was expansive with multiple choices each morning and the service was exceptional. We loved our stay and will be back again in the future.
Stayed one night with a companion for a weekend getaway. Stayed in room 35 - it felt very secluded and private due to being at the end of the hall. Perfect for a romantic escape. The shower was a little cramped but when you're retrofitting a historic property you have to work within the structure, so given that constraint, it was fine. Breakfast was fantastic. The property is lovely, the people who work there were great, we have already booked another visit.
The Sayre is a gem of a place! The breakfast menu is 5 star and the history and location make the visit extra special. Walk around the neighborhood and you are transported back to the Golden Era even though the once single-family homes are now apartments. The "bones" are still there and are architectural delights. There is also an incredible Italian restaurant close by. Ask the hosts for directions.
We stayed recently in room #35 - after a glorious review on trip advisor. This was our second time staying in the same room and it was just as wonderful as the first time. The breakfast is fantastic!!! The service is fantastic!! The location is ideal to drive to Sands or downtown. The innkeeper was very responsive with sending me recommendations for dinner which were outrageous. The cookies are wonderful --and they can always be found in the living room. Great mommy and daddy getaway!!!
