Benezette vacation rentals

Enjoy a nature-filled Benezette vacation

Benezette, PA, is a perfect place to observe the Northeast’s great bull elk. If you’re looking for a quiet destination where you can get back to nature and learn more about the history and the indigenous fauna of the area, then this is the destination for you. Bring your family or your friends to your Benezette vacation rentals and create lasting memories near the Allegheny National Forest and Elk State Park. You might even be lucky enough to see one of the majestic bull elks walk right through your backyard.

Benezette is a natural fit for your vacation

The destination’s scenic environment provides plenty of things to do around Benezette. The roaming elk are consistently sighted in the city itself, but for more views, you can also hop onto the Elk Scenic Drive, a 127-mile route that will take you through elk country and provide you with over 20 viewing sites. In the winter, enjoy the elk viewing experience from horse drawn wagon and sleigh rides. Your Benezette vacation rentals will give you and your family a comfortable home to come back to at the end of the day.

Come for the elk, stay for the attractions in Benezette

Besides the elk themselves, there are many attractions near Benezette. Step out of your Benezette vacation rentals and stroll down the historic Barclay Square or visit Brady’s Bend Overlook on Route 68. You can spend the day at the Coolspring Power Museum to learn more about the Industrial Age and the changes our country has made since, or go shopping and antiquing in the town’s many stores. And, if you plan your trip during the fall, you can attend the Autumn Leaf Festival in Clarion, which includes a parade, a football game, food vendors, and more.

Benezette’s climate means vacation fun any time of year

Benezette has regular snowfall in the winter and temperate springs and summers, which means you can go snowmobiling or cross-country skiing in December and golfing in August. The scenic highways are especially pretty when the leaves begin to turn, but it can also be refreshing to see the first green of spring in a town with such beautiful natural surroundings. No matter the Benezette weather forecast, there is usually always something to do outside, and on rainy days, you can catch a movie or go to the theater.

The story of the Benezette elk

A major nature attraction in Benezette is the Northeast’s largest head of free-roaming elk. If you visit between September and October, you will get to hear the bugling of the bulls and possibly even see the largest elk vie for dominance. The most popular spot to see the animals is at the Dent’s Run Elk Viewing Area, but you’d be surprised at how close the elk get to the residents of this cozy town. When you see one walking past your Benezette vacation rentals—and you probably will—make sure to grab your camera.
