Sightseeing

The best thing to do on a rainy day, or any day really. A two hour covered wagon tour into the heart of the PA Grand Canyon, aka: Pine Creek Gorge. Can't hike or bike? No worries, the horses will get you there and back.

My favorite view of the Canyon. An easy, 3/4 mile walk to the rim on a level trail. The only handicapped/wheelchair accessible vista available.

This gorge should be considered one of the 7 (or 8) wonders of the world. Absolutely breathtaking. A one mile hike up the most amazing waterfalls you will ever see.

A beautiful hike around the falls, but the best thing is that you can actually swim right into and under the waterfall letting the water cascades all over you. Just be forewarned....the water is cold, so do the hike first.

A lovely manmade lake with a public sand beach swimming area, picnic areas, children's playground, and hiking trails. There is also a very nice restroom and changing area, and a concession store to get simple food and snacks. About a half hour south of the cottage, just west of Mansfield, PA

A quaint little town with a few stores, but the biggest attraction is in the Fall. There are several really nice Orchards for U-Pick apples in season. Gardiner's comes to mind with weekend horse drawn wagon rides to and from the trees.
