COVID-19 Update

We continue to carefully follow Pennsylvania guidance regarding Covid-19 safety as we see continued incidence of Covid-19 throughout the surrounding region. The Penn Wells Lodge remains open, and the Penn Wells Restaurant is open Wednesday-Saturday for dinner, including contactless take-out. We thank guests for continuing to mask and social distance in the common areas for the safety of all guests and staff members. Many guest rooms at the Lodge have private entrances and allow you to stay with limited need to enter common areas or have contact with staff members or other guests not in your traveling party.

Our staff continues to wear masks, are doing health self checks prior to reporting to work, and are following a heightened cleaning protocol. We ask that our guests and customers also stay home if they are not well and wear masks in our public common spaces as a courtesy to our staff, their families, and other patrons.

Dining: The Penn Wells Hotel is open for dinner service Wednesday-Thursday 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., and Friday-Saturday 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Guest Breakfast: We are offering grab and go breakfast for guest convenience which includes coffee, tea, juice, cold cereal, milk, home made muffins, pastries, and fresh fruit. All items are individually wrapped and packaged to eliminate the use of shared serving displays and utensils. Our full hot breakfast and Sunday brunch service are indefinitely suspended in light of Covid-19 prevention guidelines.

Pool and Fitness: The Pool and Fitness Center are open from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. every day. Occupancy limits remain in effect, so please contact the front desk prior to using these facilities. Guests are encouraged to wear masks while in the pool room and on the pool deck, but are not required to wear masks in the pool or while exercising.
