Punxsutawney Phil isn’t Pennsylvania’s only weather-predicting animal — here, the woolly bear caterpillars forecast the intensity of the coming winter. This year, we’ve seen a lot of them all in black, which signals that we’re in for a long season.
Fortunately, winter is a particularly striking time of year in the Pennsylvania Great Outdoors, and right now, lodging destinations throughout the area are offering winter specials to help you make your dreams of a cozy, romantic getaway a reality.
In Cook Forest, stay in a snug little cabin or a luxurious lodge, and watch the snow frost on the evergreens from the comfort of your hot tub with that special someone by your side.
In Benezette, see the elk in the front yard of your private cottage, and enjoy a relaxing night with family as you reconnect in front of a warm fireplace.
In Clarion, Ridgway, Brookville, or St. Marys, immerse yourself in historic accommodations and the spirit of the season.
And for those traversing I-80 en route to further-flung holiday destinations, find great rates and excellent amenities without sacrificing convenience.
Holiday lodging packages make a great gift, and a winter getaway may be just the ticket you need. For unbeatable deals and an unforgettable vacation, come to the Pennsylvania Great Outdoors and enjoy the quiet beauty of the season.
