  • Hidden Gem!

    "We spent a amazing Thanksgiving at the Dancing Bear Lodge. It is a great property to spend time with family and friends. The lodge is very cute, and offers its guests an opportunity for time of seclusion, peace, and harmony. Overall, it is a great place to stay with family. The owner, Lucy is also very kind and helpful. I would recommend this property for anyone interested in spending time at a hidden gem in PA."

  • Lovely surprise

    "My husband and I rented this cabin, brought up some bikes and groceries and had one of the most beautiful weekends we can remember. First, the cabin is very special, cozy, recently built with all the amenities. The bike trail is across the street from the cabin and it takes you into the gorge of the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon. The most scenic place in the state for sure! Views of the mountains from the cabin porch showed off the changing foliage. Don't recommend this cabin for a crowd. Two to four people ideal, beware there are no beds larger than a double so if you require a Queen or King size bed you will not sleep well. TV but no internet so we unplugged which was great. Loved the fire pit outside at night and the gas fireplace inside. Highly recommend."

  • Relaxing time at Wapiti Woods Cabins

    "My husband and I were looking for a nice relaxing getaway and truly found it at Wapiti Woods Cabins. We stayed in cabin 1......no TV, no Cell Phone service, no Internet, was at the furthest point from the parking lot (you are not allowed to drive up to the cabins, but are given a large luggage cart to bring your things to your cabin). The cabin was VERY clean and well appointed with just about anything we could need. The wood that was provided for the fire ring was plentiful and if by some chance you actually ran out, you are able to buy extra right there on the property. The charcoal grill looked to be brand new and we did indeed enjoy using it for a steak dinner. Everything you could possibly need was provided in the kitchen. The bed was somewhat hard, but it was a futon, so I did expect that and did not mind that for a couple of nights. Honestly, the pictures online do not do the property enough justice. Other than the one meal we cooked at the cabin, we ate at the Benezette Hotel and at the Medix Run Hotel. The Benezette Hotel was simply delicious for dinner and Medix Run Hotel was very good while we ate bar food. We were able to spot Elk on Winslow Hill Rd and also a bear cub. We will definitely be returning to Wapiti Woods Cabins!"

  • All the comforts of home, near Cherry Springs State Park for stargazing and relaxing, beautiful!

    "What an cute Cabin, highly maintained, clean and fully stocked with all the necessities! Decor like a doll house! Fully stocked with pots, pans and dishes, you only need to bring food for this full sized kitchen. Little details such as games to keep the kids busy, such as checkers, logs and puzzles and don't forget the nets to catch the fireflies are all provided. The real joy of this cabin is the stream; sitting on one of the two patios is incredibly relaxing and tranquil. The beautiful setting and the sounds from the stream makes this a place you can relax, enjoy and unwind. Take me back anytime!"

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.
