The Wilderness Lodge – First Nordic Skiing Center in Pennsylvania
“Any day you can ski is a good day”
–Edward “Jack” Wheeler
We wanted to create a place that people wanted to come back to. And over the years, this has come true. We continue to welcome friends who walk into the lodge, make themselves at home and settle in like they had never left. We believe the comfort of the lodge and the beauty of our woods create a charm that is unmatched anywhere.
We are happy to share it with you.
As a Rustic County Inn made of broad hand hewn beams and granite, the lodge accommodates up to 40 guests in double, triple and quad rooms. Most have their own bath. We are normally booked a year in advance for the winter weekends and cater to groups who take all the rooms. You may wish to call Fridays to see if we have any available openings.
For the solitude and peace of our guests, we offer no phone or TV in the rooms. There is no smoking permitted in the Lodge. Our kitchen staff are all neighbors and friends who bring classic country cooking and local recipes for wonderful lunches and breakfast. Ask about our “Mad Scrambles” or try a lunch with homemade Chili and a big piece of Chocolate cake. Saturday night dinner is by reservation only and must be booked in advance.
The Lodge is fully licensed. “Last Call” is normally around 11 PM or thereabouts Friday and Saturday nights. Friday night the grill is open with soups and sandwiches until 11pm. Come and have a drink by a warm fire.
