Modern Retreat, Local Flavor
Enjoy the beauty of central PA’s outdoors and a modern, comfortable log cabin retreat, near top local attractions and dining.
Of my 12 years living in Happy Valley, the first 3 were in Spring Mills not far from Penn’s Cave. So it’s from experience that I can tell you Route 45 through central PA’s Penns Valley is one of the most beautiful places in Pennsylvania. Since my Spring Mills days, Penn’s Valley has gone through a major revitalization built on the area’s unique local assets, like top fly fishing streams and local agriculture; now, it’s a destination catering to visitors of all varieties—Penn State fans, fishing enthusiasts, and lovers of local food and craft beer.
So why drive through when you can stay right in the heart of it? Nestled between Coburn and Woodward is Ingleby Lodge, a mountain retreat offering spectacular surroundings and all the comforts of home, and just a short drive from some of Happy Valley’s best restaurants and attractions. The three-story log cabin lodge is spacious enough for fly fishing groups and family vacations, and offers all the modern conveniences, plus a fireplace and an outdoor grill.
Ingleby Lodge has nearby access to five of the best trout streams: Penn's Creek, Pine Creek, Elk Creek, Big Fishing Creek and Spring Creek, and is just 3 miles from Millheim, home to the Feathered Hook tackle supply and Elk Creek Café and Aleworks, one of Happy Valley’s best local-fare restaurants, serving craft beer brewed onsite. Penn’s Cave and Wildlife Park is just a few miles past Millheim on route 45 west, and Mt. Nittany Winery, also on 45 west, just past Centre Hall.
Penn State football fans should book now for fall weekends. The lodge is also popular for alumni reunion getaways, couples retreats and family vacations.
