Overview

Pennsylvania Wilds Chalet Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Life can be crazy and time consuming; it's easy to lose touch with our families and ourselves. If you're looking for a place to run away with the kids or if you just need to leave the world behind you for a while? Stop looking. Book your chance to reconnect today!

From the moment you enter the driveway, you begin to understand the meaning of serenity. As you open the door of the chalet, tucked away on the mountain, sunlight from the wall of windows draws you.

When you look out, all you can see are miles of mountains and fields. You turn around and the cozy feeling of the living room invites you to sit down and enjoy the surroundings.

The outside world seems miles away...you can take that much needed time to relax...reconnect with yourself, your family and nature.

The Chalet offers 2 ponds, a one-acre pond located in front of the house is visible from the living room. It is about 20 feet deep which is great for swimming, ice skating or build a fire in the fire pit and watch the sunset. The second pond is located just behind the house and provides picnic tables, a fire pit, benches along the shore line, catch & release fishing and a seasonal waterfall. What a great place for your family to spend countless hours enjoying the outdoors.

Relax!: We have you covered on your vacation! If you are worried about what you will find when you get there.. DON'T! My family and I take great pride in our Chalet. We try to add new comforts every year. 2010's addition include new bunk beds, new gas grill, new leather furniture and beautiful lamiate floors. So chill out and read our reviews! You won't be disappointed!

About Sonya

My husband and I opened the Chalet for business in 2003. We had originally planned to retire to the Chalet, but since we started our family late in life things have changed a little. My husband just recently retired from the State Police. Thus we are at a point in our lives where.. It's all about the kids! YEAH! Life is short, so why not enjoy it while it lasts!

Sonya purchased this chalet in 2001

Why Sonya chose Pennsylvania Wilds

We fell instantly in love the Wellsboro. The second we came into town and saw the gas lantern lined streets we were hooked. Wellsboro is a very quaint little town.. You'll be amazed when you see the PA Grand Canyon.. It's Beautiful.. especially in the Fall!

Beautiful, quiet, and extra relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We were first timers at the Chalet, but we will definitely be going back! Right when we drove up the long, private driveway we were impressed! After we walked in, it was hard to believe just how clean, well-kept, and nice the inside was. The large window covering almost the entire wall looks out to the mountains and sunset. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and the property has everything you need for every age. We enjoyed swimming in the lake, fishing, laying in the hammocks, and our 18month old guest absolutely loved the outdoor play set. It is so private and quiet you feel like you are the only one on the entire mountain. We cannot wait to return!!! Our only suggestion would be to add another toilet downstairs (for convenience with 6 adults!) Cannot wait to return next year!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Very scenic and private. Great view from the living room. Lots of wildlife and good fishing. We had invited friends but were glad they turned us down after seeing that there was only one small bathroom. But it was great for us and we enjoyed our stay. Wellsboro is a neat little town and the State parks nearby are beautiful especially the PA Grand Canyon.

The perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our 3rd stay at the Chalet, will definitely be going back! We brought our dogs with us, unfortunately our newer dog ran off and got lost. The Chalet owner Sonya was amazing, she posted flyers in town and notified neighbors and the Animal Sanctuary. She also helped search the Chalet property and surrounding properties. Our buddy Forrest was found 4 days later and is home again!!

Excellent vacation !!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the chalet. Home was immaculate. Extremely clean and comfortable. My kids wanted ice cream and the last thing I thought I would find in one of the drawers was an ice cream scoop. They think of everything ! Highly recommend !

Absolutely beautiful home! Enough space for everyone to spread out and find some peace and quite. Activities for those who want adventure and those who would prefer a leisurely pace. We enjoyed having no cell service. Although the beds weren't the best, all other Ameneties were just like being at home. Stunning place!

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is a piece of heaven! Nestled in the woods; beautifully landscaped and maintained; interior very clean and rustic. We hiked trails, made a fire in the pit and were close to the canyon. You really don't have to leave this cabin though! Would definitely without a doubt stay here in the future. Brought our dog too.
