  • Thing of Beauty!

    "Words cannot express this whole experience! I will never forget driving up the dirt road and seeing this gem of a cabin waiting for us at the end of the lane...simply breathtaking! The interior was so cozy but we spent most of our time on the porch just sitting and listening to nature at its finest. The owners Penny and Rob have supplied everything you would need, just bring clothes and food and you're set! The cabin was clean when we arrived. Communication with the owners was superb! Thank you so much for sharing your cabin with us Penny and Rob, as I write this I'm checking on dates for our return visit! And by the way..if you have dogs this was a wonderful place for them to explore and truly get to know nature, our Boxers had a wonderful time and every time we say "cabin", their ears perk up. On a final note, the night before we left, a small herd of deer came walking through the front lawn. We would live here most definitely...if cabin life is for you..GO!!! You won't be disappointed......Traci and Jim Patterson"

  • Wonderful Birthday Celebration!

    "The Galloping Inn provided a relaxing and peaceful setting for a birthday celebration weekend. We rented the main house, suite, and cabin. The Inn has been beautifully renovated while still maintaining the charm of its age. The photos do not do the Inn justice. The property is truly serene. Families from several areas including Pittsburgh, Cleveland, NYC and Harrisburg enjoyed getting away from it all. Everyone we came in contact with from the owners to the horse trainers (kids enjoyed a hayride) were great. We look forward to returning!"

  • A Very Special Christmas

    "Our family had the very good fortune of spending Christmas at Sagamore South. From the snow flurries that started as we drove down the lane to the fresh blanket of snow we awoke to the morning of our departure it just enhanced our stay. This home is so truly welcoming and comfortable with all the special touches Sue has waiting for you. The decor is wonderful and the views are amazing. The kitchen is well equipped for all your cooking needs. Flannel sheets, down comforters and beautiful quilts kept us toasty. We enjoyed spending time in the great room around the fireplace enjoying the view of the river. Whatever the reason~whatever the season this home has so much to offer. Thank you for sharing your home with us."

  • Wonderful House, Idyllic Setting

    "We were only here for two nights but wished almost immediately that our stay was longer. The house is spacious, comfortable and very well kitted out. The back decking is huge and overlooks a large garden where we played croquet on the lawn. We were very lucky to be able to take up the opportunity to have dinner with a local Amish family in the village, arranged by Lucy. This was one of the highlights of our trip. The doughnuts sold on Saturday morning just around the corner were the best we have ever had! There are lots of nature walks and beautiful farming landscapes in the local area. Lucy has very good local knowledge and went out of her way to ensure that we had a wonderful stay. We even went for a bird walk with Lucy and a friend. They helped find and identify the birds we saw and heard. Thank you so much Lucy for such an enjoyable stay and for making us feel so welcome. We highly recommend a stay at the Dancing Bear Lodge - you won't be disappointed!"

Pennsylvania Wilds Travel Tips

Discover Pennsylvania Wilds Vacation Rentals

The region of Pennsylvania Wilds is a large area, over 150,000 acres, that encompasses 27 "natural areas" and eight "wild areas," including 29 state parks covering 27,600 acres. 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.

Other sports here include biking, fishing, fabulous horseback riding trails, hunting and motorcycling. If visitors still need more adventure, there is canoeing, kayaking, tubing and whitewater rafting. During the winter, the summer hiking trails transform to wonderful cross country skiing areas.

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.

Stunning Scenery, Perfect Properties

Pennsylvania Wilds cabins include some breathtaking properties, in some of the most beautiful areas imaginable. Properties such as large mansion homes with ponds, huge properties to fit a large group of friends or extended family, or a mountain cabin hideaway for two are available.
