Recent Pennsylvania Wilds reviews

  • Weekend With Friends

    "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."

  • 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!"

  • 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."

  • Wilderness hiker's heaven

    "The area reminded us of southern Idaho. Unspoiled, gorgeous, hike accessible. The house is warm, extremely comfortable, generously stocked. This is a gem. More than that for distance runners. We can't wait to return."

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.
