  • PSU Football lodging

    "This was our second stay at Laurel Woods. The house is always clean and it has plenty of space for our group. Dianne is very organized and is always ready to help with any questions. We use this house as a place to stay for Penn State football games as it is about 50 minutes from State College. We will be staying again."

  • Juniata graduation weekend 2014

    "The property was better than the pictures.Everything was clean and ready when we arrived. We really enjoyed the fire ring, beds were comfortable and kitchen was well supplied. We enjoyed cooking meals and having meal together in house. We didn't use the basement but it was nicely decorated and had a large TV with lots of seating. We tended to hang on the first floor, enjoyed the covered porch rockers and the large fire ring. Would recommend bringing two child gates if you bring little guys here. Not easily accessible since there are steps into house but once in full bath & two bedrooms are on first floor with kitchen & living room. Really enjoyed our stay and will definitely consider this property again for our family."

  • Charming Country Home

    "Completely as described in the listing, the cozy house is part of a farm. Liza was available (next door) to answer questions, but we had complete privacy. All pots, pans, utensils, and baking needs were found in the kitchen, which is a rarity in my experience with vacation rentals. Got the impression it was an old house but nicely and completely renovated within the past 10 years. All appliances and bathrooms were modern and working perfect. I'm not usually a fan of country decor, but this was more authentic looking, with lots of browns, rusty reds, and faded blues. Not kitchy or cute. Husband is a history buff, so very much enjoyed nearby Fort Bedford Museum and the recreated old village. Ate out most lunches and some dinners, and the Jean Something Tavern west of Bedford on Rt 30 was our favorite. I enjoyed the antiques in town and coverlet museum. The 2 state parks were great, too. There are several (20?) picturesque covered bridges in the area, and one was an easy walk from the home. There are 2 great summer ice cream places on the main road -- the cow and the igloo. Would recommend this to a friend who wanted a fairly low-key vacation with plenty of time to relax."

Allegheny Mountains & Her Valleys Travel Tips

Bordering New York, the Allegheny Area of Pennsylvania

A trip to Allegheny Area vacation rentals in Pennsylvania will intimately acquaint you with both New York and Pennsylvania’s border. The Allegheny region sits in the far north, just east of Lake Erie. The closest city to the area is Bradford on the Pennsylvania side. Those partaking of Allegheny area resorts will find they can be along the border of the National Forest which extends south from the New York border. Whether you choose the comforts and personal touches of a resort or a private home with a cozy atmosphere and fully stocked kitchen, the Allegheny region is full of excitement and fun.

Stepping Into the Past at Allegheny Area Condos

Pennsylvania is rich with history and a mixture of cultures. It was in this state that the first shots of the French and Indian War were fired, as well as those for the American Revolution. The polio vaccine was worked on at the University of Pittsburgh. All of this is spread throughout the state which will make the history and culture of Allegheny of little surprise. Allegheny’s location made it important to Native Americans and later to white settlers. Allegheny is also the name of a city founded in 1788 along the Allegheny and Ohio Rivers near Pittsburgh. It was inhabited with Germans and later Croats, before turning into the Commons. The national forest offers 516,000 acres of land that was once free and is still untamed for visitors to Allegheny to enjoy.

The Allegheny National Forest Near Allegheny Area Vacation Rentals

The national forest is the one place tourists head each year due to its locale close to the Ohio and Allegheny Rivers. It is also the lush forests that draw in tourists with its numerous recreational activities on offer. Camping, picnicking, hiking, boating, fishing, swimming, and skiing are all activities of the Allegheny area. For those renting a home along the forest's border, there are boat rentals and a boat ramp in the event you want to bring your own. In winter, skiing, snowmobiling, and skating are all available. Spring will bring wintery activities along with the adventure of hiking to see the new wildlife and flowers that dot the landscape.

In autumn, the forest is most vibrant with yellows, oranges, and reds due to the changing of the trees’ leaves. A photographer will delight in the beauty of the region, with the snow-capped mountains rising above the forest floor and the sun just breaking through the foliage.

Best Places to Explore While in the Allegheny Area

With the heritage Pennsylvania offers, it should come as no surprise that there are numerous historic places to visit. Many of the places on the list are in Pittsburgh which is just outside of the national park area. One place that is a must on the list is the Priory. The Priory was built in 1852 as the St. Mary’s German Catholic Church. A home was built in 1888 for the Bavarian Benedictine priests and brothers. The church eventually merged with Italian and Polish congregations before closing. Since its closure, the house has been turned into a banquet hall and bed and breakfast.

The Penn Brewery should also be on your list; it began in 1987. The old Eberhardt and Ober Brewery combined in one building to create the Penn Pilsner brew and other specialty beers. Tourists and vacationers like you travel each year to the Brewery for their German menu and live music.

During the late 19th century, Allegheny became a town for stately homes with many wealthy families of the area building grand estates. The area was named the Mexican War Streets due to General William Robinson Jr. who returned from the Mexican War to subdivide his land and name the streets after his battles. Today, one can still see many of the stately homes.

Dinner and Entertainment Offered Around Allegheny Area Resorts

The influence of the German culture has made its mark on the cuisine one can experience while in Pennsylvania. A number of local restaurants offer full German menus, American cuisine, and some other international fares. You have only to drive around the small village, town, or city you are near to find a five-star restaurant.
