  • Fall Mountain Bike Weekend

    "My Otter Place is the perfect rental for a mountain bike weekend. Easy ride directly from the house to the Alligrippis trails. House is clean, comfortable, and has plenty of room to hang out. Dinner at Boxers in Huntingdon is a must after a long ride."

  • Great Ski Weekend

    "We did a last minute booking to get a good March ski weekend in. The owner responded to my booking immediately. The rate was incredible; the condo was everything we were looking for; the skiing was excellent. The condo is smallish, but sleeps 4 to 6 comfortably, is clean, and provides everything you need if your main focus is on skiing. After skiing dining in the Clubhouse was good. Though the had a limited menu (end of season), the food was good and they had a very strong collection of craft beers. The Clubhouse was very informal and provided a perfect, care-free atmosphere for two daughters, (7&9). Finally and most importantly, the skiing at Blue Knob is exceptional. This condo is perfect for a family seeking a quick, ski weekend getaway. When it was all said and done, this weekend cost us about half what a comparable weekend at 7 Springs would have cost, and the skiing was twice as good. If you want to hang out at a resort go to 7 springs. If you want to get your ski on, rent this condo and head to Blue Knob."

  • Great place at the River!

    "My husband and I visited the owners at this cottage, as Doug & Mary Ellen are my husbands friends from many years ago. This visit was my first time to the cottage, and I was very impressed. I own and manage several rental properties at Raystown Lake, and I can no way compare the privacy this cottage offers to the guest, fantastic! So peaceful, clean, very nicely decorated, and the personal touch the owners offer is so welcoming! We met with some fellow friends in for a Huntingdon class reunion from Florida at this cottage, and as we sat on the deck overlooking the river, the peaceful setting was so inviting! The short drive to the lake, one of the best dinners in Huntingdon County is nearby, as well as the plenty of things to do within a 15 minute drive. Great place to kick back and relax, and enjoy the nature this cottage has to offer. Thank you Dave and Mary Ellen for a wonderful dinner, and what a beautiful place you have!"

  • Total Peace

    "My mother and I stayed at this property for a few days. I must say it was so very peaceful. The pictures do not do it justice. It is very spacious. The property was spotless and we had all the conveniences we needed. It was wonderful to sit in the living room and watch the squirrels and chipmunks play. Sit on the deck and watch the sunlight reflect off of the river. Bruce was extremely helpful giving us driving directions. Thanks Bruce."

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.
