Modeled after a chateau in the south of France, Joseph Hirshhorn created a private retreat in Pennsylvannia where he could enjoy the solitude of the mountains and the serenity of “Mother Nature.” Having breakfast or tea on the veranda with a view to the surrounding hilltops, gives our guests this same feeling. The accommodations and cuisine are unmatched in the area. At the French Manor, old world charm and furnishings are seamlessly joined with all the modern conveniences. Many of our suites boast a fireplace and Jacuzzi, private balcony and spectacular 20 mile views. Le Spa Forêt at the French Manor invites guests to enjoy restful and all natural spa treatments, an indoor salt-water pool and hot tub, and fitness room. Guests will feel a sense of peace and contentment while enjoying all the added amenities the spa will offer. Midweek travelers can enjoy our 'Enchanted Evening' package which includes chilled champagne, Godiva chocolates and roses in your guest room or suite upon arrival, as well as gourmet candlelight dinners each evening and a full country breakfast each morning. Triple sheeting and turn-down service along with complimentary sherry, cheese and fruit on arrival add to the romance with any of our overnight packages.
