Woodland Lodge offers the now-rare opportunity to vacation in a beautiful natural setting, remote from traffic, fast food, and the “hurry” of modern life. It has the positive features of a camping trip, yet the rustic accommodations are comfortable and well-appointed. Among the favorite aspects of a stay are rest and relaxation; campfires, trail walking, bird watching, nature study, ponds, games (indoors and out), and large libraries. The diversity of alcoves, living room spaces, and work areas facilitate both quiet contemplation and social interchanges.
The location, although remote and secluded, allows forays for various adventures within easy driving distance. Visitors enjoy the Allegheny National Forest, Kinzua Dam and Allegheny Reservoir, Chautauqua Institution and Chautauqua Lake, Presque Isle at Lake Erie, Drake Well and Oil Museum, scenic railway, hunting and fishing, biking, local fairs and festivals, Audubon Center, horseback riding, antique shops, auctions, Amish shops.
Activities available on site include horseshoes, volleyball, table tennis, campfires, and large libraries.
