"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!"

"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."

"Our group was here for the 5th time. We absolutely adore this place whether it is a weekend with just adults or children included. We've been here during different seasons. As far as activities there is much to take advantage of such as fishing in the pond, volleyball, horseshoes, ping pong or enjoying an outdoor fire. We always enjoy walking the trails on the property with hopes of seeing the bulls (fenced). We did have someone ride their bicycle from Titusville to Oil City and ride the train back. We always have a great time! Always looking forward to the next time."

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."
