  • Wonderful Cottage, Wonderful Owner, Wonderful Vacation

    "My husband and I stayed for 4 fantastic nights. It is very obvious that Karen, the owner, lovingly cares for her cottage. We’re "go south and stay at the beach" type of people so I was a bit apprehensive about renting in upper PA. The cottage had everything to make our stay comfortable and we enjoyed every minute here. The front porch is very peaceful and is great for a nap. Cooking on the grill and eating dinner on the deck was wonderful. The kitchen has every possible appliance and utensil for meal prep and serving. The accessories were great for a mountain cottage, including the dishes with pine cone décor and silverware with deer. The only change I would suggest is to have furniture with drawers, such as a chest, in each bedroom. The internet is very fast and dependable. We geocached each day. We were not disappointed, as there are many caches within about 25 miles and it enable to see the many wonderful small towns and lots of lakes and rivers. I’ve been told I’m too fussy when it comes to cleanliness. Karen’s cottage was spotless, the cleanest place we’ve ever rented and lived up to my nit-picky expectations. Karen was a pleasure to work with, both before renting and during our stay, quickly responding to any questions we had. I was disappointed with the nearby restaurants. I recommend a trip to Corning, NY. We also enjoyed Wellsboro, PA."

    "We had a marvelous time at this wonderful country retreat. It is located just minutes from downtown Coudersport, yet completely private and in the country. The house easily accommodated the twelve adults and two children. The grounds outside featured play areas for the kids and a lovely garden. The internet was flawless. There was available TV and a plethora of books to occupy anyone. I would highly recommend this very complete hideaway to anyone planning a stay in the Coudersport area for any year round activity. We certainly plan on staying here for our next visit to Coudersport."

  • great location in Slate Run

    "Cabin very nice. Twin bed in the laundry room a bit odd to call it a bedroom. The grill was in very bad shape, but caretaker got new one for us, just in time to make dinner on the grill. Caretaker very easy to contact & helpful. Used the fire pit, very nice & relaxing w/great backdrop of mountains. Beautiful view from deck. joined up w/my brother's family. Brought our own kayaks & bicycles. Did a 1 hr kayak run on the Pine Creek one day. Contacted Pine Creek Outfitters a few days ahead of time & arranged a pickup at the Slate Run parking area, for a bike ride. They drove us up to Ansonia, PA (~ 1hr ride). We took the 30 mile rails-to-trail back down to Slate Run with our bicycles. Perfect weather (well, a little hot/humid). Then cooled off in the Pine Creek near the cabin."

It includes the counties of Cameron, Clarion, Clinton, Clearfield, Elk, Forest, Jefferson, Lycoming, McKean, Potter, Tioga and Warren. The main airport in the area is Harrisburg International Airport and the whole area is easily accessible, as major state and interstate highways make travel around Pennsylvania Wilds lodging simple.

An Outdoor Lover’s Paradise

This is a region for outdoor adventures and spectacular scenery. Whether you are a dedicated hiker or just enjoy a gentle walk through the forests, you will be delighted with this area. For the serious hikers, trails such as those at Black Forest, Golden Eagle, Bob Webber and Longfellow will be challenging enough for anyone. For occasional but fit walkers, the West Rim, Fred Woods, Minister Creek, Lakeside, Rock Run & Spur Line Loop, Teaberry and Tracy trails will all be wonderful opportunities to enjoy the exercise, take in the scenery and spot the wildlife. Trails for the novice walkers include Timberdoodle Flats, Houtzale, Barbour Rock, Beaver Dam and Souder’s.

Delightful, Historic Towns Scattered in the Mountains

There are so many wonderful towns to explore around Pennsylvania Wilds vacation rentals that vacationers will need to return several times to discover them all. In Jefferson County, Brookville dates from the late 1790s, and here visitors step back to a 19th-century town with unique shops and impressive architecture. Also here is Punxsutawney, world-renowned for its Groundhog Day. In Clearfield, visitors will enjoy the historic area around the riverfront and Curwensville is visited for its quaint stores and interesting winery tour. Golfers will enjoy the excellent array of golf courses within easy reach of DuBois.

The County of Potter is home to Coudersport where there is an excellent farmers' market and the Rainbow Paradise Trout Farm to catch dinner. Austin is the site of the Austin Dam memorial where the ruins act as a memorial of the local tragedy in 1911 when the dam burst and killed 80 local townspeople. The E. O. Austin Museum is worth a visit. At Lock Haven in Clinton County, visitors can visit the Heisey Museum to understand what life was like during the 1800s. It is also home to the Piper Aviation Museum, where visitors can learn more about the "plane that taught the world to fly." Loganton is a small Amish farming community where the stores still only use gas lights. Here, as part of the Sugar Valley Historical Society, is Logan Mills Covered Bridge and Bull Run One Room School. Elk County is the place to visit Benezette, a small village where many of the local residents have hooves. Visitors come here, cameras at the ready, to see the largest herd of elk in the region. The nearby town of St. Marys was founded by Catholics fleeing the persecution of eastern cities. This explains the fabulous local brewery where the "Eternal Tap" of free beer proves popular with visitors.
