In the early 1900’ss when railroads were the popular mode of transportation, weary passengers en route to the Poconos and points north would debark at the East Greenville Station for The Globe Inn. They were warmly greeted and served a sumptuous meal in a “Victorian banquet room” by waiters dressed in tuxedos and top hats. The basement rathskeller provided conversation and spirits in a less formal atmosphere. A leisurely stroll through the village past the Lorenz Carriage Company, the East Greenville Creamery, a silent movie at the Palace Theater, or a trim of a gentleman’s beard at the Hotel tonsorial parlor ended the day before retiring to a handsomely appointed suite. All in all a wonderful evening not to be forgotten!
Well, we haven’t forgotten either. Although the Palace Theater and our livery stable are gone, The Globe perseveres a century old tradition of personal service and excellence in lodging accommodations. Plus, now there is The Grand Theater right up on Main Street which has been restored to its 1924 charm. You can relive the charm and elegance of days gone bye in a “Period Suite” accented by a Jacuzzi, fireplace, and complete entertainment center. Our wonderful local restaurants and pubs offer a variety of great dining options within minutes of our inn.
Leisurely days can be spent in the beautiful Perkiomen Valley which offers a wide variety of activities. Nearby Green Lane Reservoir Park offers picnicking, boating, swimming, hiking, and birding. Several golf courses and Dorney Park provide summer fun while Bear Creek and Spring Mt. ski areas are just minutes away for winter activities. For the shoppers, art lovers and history buffs, Skippack Village provides antique, specialty, craft, and art shops that will delight you anytime of the year. Your stay at The Globe Inn is sure to be an enjoyable experience that you will not soon forget.
