During the summer and fall months Wellsboro bustles with tourists of all sorts – hikers, cyclists, shoppers, and more. Those who visit in winter find a Wellsboro with its own appeal to a hearty group of visitors who are able to quickly blend right in with the locals and find even more open spaces than during the prime tourist season.
When snow is plentiful here, winter sports enthusiasts delight. For downhill skiing enthusiasts looking for a lower key and drivable destination this season, Ski Sawmill offers family skiing in a laid back, uncrowded atmosphere and also has terrain to challenge the advanced skier. Ski Sawmill is located an easy 25 minute drive from the Penn Wells. Want even more distance from others this winter? Try cross-country skiing or snowshoeing through the PA Grand Canyon along the groomed Pine Creek Rail Trail, at Hills Creek State Park, or a variety of other spots throughout the region. Snowmobiling is another popular activity, with a large network of trails available throughout the countryside. After a day outdoors, you’ll enjoy settling back into the Penn Wells Lodge where our heated pool, jacuzzi, and saunas will warm you up.
When the snow melts, it only makes it easier to get to Wellsboro by car, and a bounty of activities still await. Winter is a great time to visit local shops and get the personalized attention that our independent retailers are known for. Winter is also a great time to get away on the Penn Wells Romance package. Whether Valentine’s weekend or any day, enjoy time with your special someone and discover wine and chocolate made right here in Tioga County.
The serenity of the winter season awaits you at the Penn Wells Hotel & Lodge in Wellsboro, PA.
