Stay in Central Pennsylvania This Winter!

The weather outside may soon be frightful, but a stay in Central PA could be so delightful! Make plans this winter to enjoy a break from life in your house and escape for an overnight or two in Columbia & Montour Counties.

Coming to the area from several hours away?  Our area lodging establishments are safe and open for travelers. Area hotels, inns, and B&B’s have all implemented extra cleaning procedures and safety protocols to keep guests safe and healthy while visiting. Many offer contactless check-in and if you’re looking to avoid people, they’ll be glad to help you coordinate an extra quiet stay. Get hot chocolate to go in your room and settle in with a classic Christmas movie, or relax in your jetted tub if your room includes one. Take breakfast to go in your room or order a gourmet carry-out dinner from a local restaurant, delivered to you. Or perhaps you just want to catch up on sleep, away from the kids and the office. It’s your getaway, so you might as well treat yourself!

For those looking to do a bit of sightseeing or exploring the area during their stay, there are some great local attractions that will still be open in our area during the winter months. Knoebels Amusement Resort’s “Joy Through the Grove” and Berwick’s Holiday Boulevard will be two of the state’s best drive-through light shows that you’ll find. Bill’s Old Bike Barn is a one-of-a-kind museum that will provide hours of fun – and it’s now available to tour with a guided audio device full of stories straight from the owner. And of course, the area’s 25 historic covered bridges are a classic inclusion on the itinerary of things to see, especially if there’s winter snow (great photo opportunity). And those are just a few of the many options.

Local to Central Pennsylvania? Doesn’t matter! You can rekindle the fire in your relationship with a romantic staycation or just use it as a way to recharge the batteries with some time away from daily life. The dishes can wait!

As an added bonus to your getaway, travelers staying in the Columbia-Montour area this season can take advantage of some unique packages from several of our area hotels, attractions, restaurants, wineries, & breweries. More packages are being added each week, so keep an eye out for one that works for you.
