The recently remodeled Apartment has two bedrooms, full bath, full kitchen, screened porch, and private entrance.

Quiet welcoming retreat

  • 4 of 5

Our host was unable to rent the apartment to us but offered room in the farmhouse B&B. It was a lovely setting. Good sized private room and bath. Clean comfortable bedding. Soft mattress. Breakfast was wonderfully informal and home made - we even had fresh eggs from the chickens just outside. A fire in the fireplace while we sat and sipped great coffee and chatted was greatly appreciated. We felt very very welcome and comfortable with our stay.

Cornfield Delight

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a relaxing 4 night stay at Dancing Bear Farm. The apartment was clean and spacious. The granola, homemade yogurt, and fresh eggs got our days off to a sunny start. We were traveling with our 2 golden retrievers. The cosy outdoor garden nooks invited us to enjoy the outdoors. The bunny and deer sightings delighted our dogs and the firefly shows on our evening walks made the end of our days quite special!

Relaxing and Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter and I stayed at Dancing Bear Farm in the apartment for two nights. The apartment was beautiful, very comfortable and modern. Therese was a wonderful host...very friendly, helpful and sweet! She provided a breakfast of juice, yogurt, fruit and DELICIOUS homemade muffins and granola mixes. The granola was so good we bought more to bring home! The best part of Dancing bear Farm, however, was the beautiful grounds. We slept and read in all three hammocks, swam in the pool and enjoyed the beautiful farm views from the Adirondack chairs. The grounds are beautiful and so quiet and peaceful. We loved our stay, and I am planning on returning for a girls get away with my friends!

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.
