Recent Pennsylvania Wilds reviews

  • Perfect

    "Our family stayed at this beautiful home for the weekend. We booked thru the owners and were truly impressed by the accommodations. It was especially comfortable and roomy. There were other family members in town and there was plenty of room for us to sit and visit. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything that you'd need, beds comfortable with quality linens and plenty of blankets. There are 1 1/2 baths, as opposed to what the ad says. The owners were more than helpful, making certain our stay was a positive experience."

  • Fantastic Get-Away!

    "My family stayed here for a long weekend and had a great time! The home is well kept, stocked, and in a wonderful location. We loved being able to walk to the creek to do some fishing, wildlife watching (eagles, mergansers, beavers, and a variety of ducks), as well as just listening to the water. The amenities are great with Wi-Fi, satellite TV (it rained 1 day so it was a nice distraction for our 3 year old), and a variety of appliances for cooking. I've been staying in this area for over 20 years, and this is one of the nicest homes I've rented. For being pet friendly, it didn't smell like dogs or have hair everywhere. It is also one of the few places I've stayed that truly had the basic staples on hand (toilet paper, paper towels, linens, bath towels, etc...). It is less than 10 miles away in either direction from some great local restaurants, general stores, and of course fishing. The owners were extremely easy to work with, and really made sure their home was in great shape. We absolutely loved our stay and will return!"

  • Peaceful, beautiful, everything we hoped for and more

    "We just returned from a weekend at Blue Skies Lodge and I can't say enough positive things about it -- not even a day of freezing rain and cloudy skies could spoil the peace, beauty and coziness of this property. Chris and Kate were extremely flexible, responsive, and helpful throughout the rental process, and "The World's Best Handyman" Bob Anderson was a wonderful help and guide as we arrived after dark. The photos don't do the house justice -- it is beautiful, well-equipped, and was cozy enough for a couple but spacious enough for a group of friends. The property and especially the observation field were the highlight of the stay -- wonderful views, plenty of walking trails, and no neighbors in sight. We had one clear night, and the stars were as amazing as advertised. If you're looking for a bit of civilization, the town of Coudersport was a quick drive and had delicious, inexpensive food options and incredibly friendly people. We quickly realized we needed a lot more than a weekend to explore the surrounding area, and are hoping to return to see some of the other seasons. We did a lot of research on the lodging options in the area before our trip, but no more -- this will be our first and only choice for as long as Chris and Kate are willing to share! Last tips -- -The rental agreement warns about needing 4WD in the winter months to make it up the private driveway -- listen to them! It was no problem in an SUV but I would be careful even in a heavy rain if you don't have 4WD. Our friends ended up having to hike up after an unusually bad ice storm -- it's steep, but short enough that a fit person could do it if necessary. -If anyone is hesitant about being totally unplugged, Verizon phone users, you should have a tiny bit of reception for text messages -- just enough for emergencies, not enough to interrupt the relaxation."

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.
