                  Other Activities

                      • Renovo is the perfect launching spot for a myriad of outdoor activities throughout the year. Hyner View is ground zero for hang gliding enthusiasts. Hyner also provide some of the most beautiful sights of the West Branch of Susquehanna River. You will enjoy the drive up Hyner Mountain as you switchback through the forest. For kayak and canoe enthusiasts you will find a convenient 'put in' at the Flaming Foliage Lot near the Visitor's Center. Zizo Kayak on 6th street will hook you up with everything you need...including a fishing boat should you desire. The State Forests and game lands offer numerous hiking trails and ATV trails as well as excellent hunting and fishing. A scenic drive to the Elk Country Visitors Center in Bennezette... see the elk close up! Plenty of boating and fishing opportunities along the West Branch of the Susquehanna River as well as Kettle Creek Lake and the Sinnamahoning Lake. The lakes are set in spectacular scenery, surrounded by mountains...catch the occasional Bald Eagle! Or drive up Route 144 towards Snow Shoe...you will find scenic overlooks and hiking trails all along the way! Take a day trip and follow the Pennsylvania Wilds Artisan Trail visiting various juried craftsmen/galleries throughout the vast region. Walk around Renovo and enjoy the history. Don't be afraid to go down alley ways and venture over the river to South Renovo to just explore the town. Grab an ice cream cone at Yesterday's. Satisfy the treasure hunter in you and stop by The Rummage Shoppe on Erie Ave....say hello to Becky who always gives you a warm welcome! Grab a meal at The Sportsmans or Yesterdays. Enjoy the bustle of a small town with the beauty of the mountains all around. Check out the history of Renovo railroad heritage. Another nice day trip idea...take a drive to Williamsport. It is about an hour away...but the drive is beautiful. You will find a wide range of activities from shopping to the arts. A little closer and on the way...you will find Lock Haven which has a budding arts community as well. ...moreless

                        The Manse is a comfortable and quaint home and was perfect for our group of 6. The owners have kept up the property and were very accommodating. The beds were comfortable and there was a fully stocked kitchen for us to prepare meals and enjoy a sit down dinner. It was perfectly located in Renovo and enabled us to enjoy the area without driving a long way. The owner greeted us upon our arrival and showed us arond the house. She was attentive to our needs and was very responsive to requests. The house is very clean and well kept. I would stay there again in the future! Excellent choice!

                        Me and my friends spent our labor day weekend here. We planned to do summer activities in the state parks near Renovo and were looking for a house or cabin to rent than spending nights in a hotel. The Manse turned out to be an excellent choice. About the location: The house is situated on one of the main avenue of the small town Renovo. It is surrounded by mountains and state parks.So there are lot of summer activities to do here. There is Kayak and boat rental place right around the corner. The Kettle Creek Park to do kayaking is about 20 mins away and the rental place provides transportation for kayaks; so you don't have to carry them. You can do hiking and hang gliding (for more adventurous ones) in Hyner View State Park (about 20 mins away). The view from Hyner View is beautiful and definitely recommended. The bigger state parks like Cook Forest State Park are about 2 hours away but the area has many other smaller state parks and hunting grounds. I liked the fact that the house was in a small town (rather than secluded in a jungle by itself). That meant we could get away from hectic lifestyle and also enjoy access to amenities like grocery store for last min. needs. About the house: There were only four of us but the house is large enough to easily accommodate 7-8 people and is pretty much the same as shown in the pictures attached to the listing. The house was clean, and comfortable. About the owners: Owners were really helpful and made the entire stay very easy from the beginning. Check-In and Check-Out instructions were quite clear. They provided us with a charcoal grill when we told them we intended to do BBQ and also showed up on our first night when we couldn't find the house entrance in the dark. Overall, a very comfortable stay. We would spend the day out and relax at home in the evening watching movies or playing games on our xbox which we hooked up to the TV. Kitchen had enough cookware for us to cook breakfast and dinner once we had the ingredients. If I return to the area, would definitely live at this place again.

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: This vacation home is owned by Dick and Marge Moriarty along with Dick's daughter and husband, Melissa and Mike Riehl. Dick grew up in Renovo and moved away... we are now spending more time here and want to share the beauty of this area with others.

                      Why the Owner Chose Renovo:
                      This home is filled with history and holds many fond memories to many of the locals. It sat empty for years...and we had our eye on it, hoping someday to bring her back to life. The house is a fun structure with the detailed woodwork, elaborate stair case, and large living area. We hope to continue to make improvements as time goes on....but she is ready to impress you with her beauty and comfort! Renovo is a quaint town with a long rail roading history. Our claim to fame is the annual Flaming Foliage Festival the second full week every October. The Susquehanna River has canoe access ramp just down the street. Rent a kayak or fishing boat just a couple of blocks away. Visit Heritage Park and learn about the history of the CCC camps and other local history. It is a perfect launching point for viewing elk in Bennezette, hiking,boating, canoeing, kayaking, hang gliding from Hyner View, biking, ATV trails, geocaching, hunting, fishing, birding, rock collecting, cross country skiing, snow mobiling, antiquing.
