Property description

Dancing Bear Farm offers a warm and welcoming, comfortable country atmosphere, yet close to grocery stores, quaint downtown Lewisburg and many area attractions. Nestled in the beautiful farm country of central Pennsylvania, the rural setting offers a refreshing break from the busy-ness of everyday life.

Dancing Bear Farm is a secluded 3-acre homestead with a two-story Farmhouse, and an entirely private 2-bedroom Country Bear Apartment. Accommodations are casual and comfortable. The recently remodeled Apartment has two bedrooms, full bath, full kitchen, screened porch, and private entrance. For larger groups, the Farmhouse is also available for vacation rental, with four bedrooms, a large kitchen, laundry room and two additional full bathrooms. Ask us about details and pricing.

The beautifully landscaped grounds are graced with wonderful trees, ponds, waterfalls, campfire, children’s play area and in-ground swimming pool. We know you'll feel your stress drop away and your spirit rise as you make yourself at home here.

Car: Recommended

If you enjoy a carefree pace in a rural setting, then you'll love the beautiful Susquehanna River Valley. Our charming downtowns and open countrysides are here to welcome you year-round. Here in the River Valley, you'll notice that we enjoy sharing the road with buggies and bicycles; that fairs and festivals highlight our rich history and heritage; and that the arts thrive in our galleries, museums, parks, and small cafes.

Listen to the clip-clop of horse and buggies as they scurry from the country side to the downtown to sell their produce and wares. Squeeze and smell the fresh produce at our roadside stands and farmers markets. Observe history that's alive and thriving in realistic reenactments, museums, heritage festivals, and educational experiences. Touch handmade quilts that took months to craft by hand. Taste our local specialties, like whoopie pies, pot pie, and apple butter.

Our welcoming nature, along with our gorgeous scenery and year-round events, make the Susquehanna River Valley the perfect place for a couple's weekend getaway, a family vacation, a road trip with friends, or a business retreat.

While here, you'll have the opportunity to shop in historic downtowns and one-of-a-kind shops. It won't be hard to find whatever you're looking for, including jewelry, art, fresh produce, homemade delicacies, clothing, antiques, furniture, quilts - and so much more.

LEWISBURG

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Lewisburg is nestled between the Susquehanna River and Bucknell University. Its downtown offers over 40 retail stores, restaurants with food for every palate, museums, galleries, coffee houses, B&B’s, live music, and an authentically- restored Art Deco movie theatre.

DINING

Whether you’re looking for a romantic dinner for two, Happy Hour specials for a group of friends, or a family-style home cooked meal, the Susquehanna River Valley has it. Many of our restaurants and chefs use locally grown ingredients to give visitors a taste of the Susquehanna River Valley’s seasonal offerings.

ARTS

Arts and culture thrive in the Susquehanna River Valley! Discover Art Deco and Victorian architecture, concerts-in-the-park, murals, galleries, museums, musical performances, wineries and so much more. To see current exhibitions and art-related happenings, visit our calendar of events page.

RECREATION

Whether it’s spring, summer, fall, or winter, the natural beauty of the Susquehanna River Valley is sure to inspire you to take in the great outdoors. The Susquehanna River Valley is home to the majestic Susquehanna River. We are also surrounded by state parks, scenic country roads, abundant fishing streams and year-round recreational opportunities.

The region also offers a number of land and water trails. There’s truly something here for everyone – whether you like to hike, bike, fish, canoe, golf, watch wildlife, or take a leisurely stroll through a park with friends and family – it’s all right here for you to enjoy!
