Gateway Lodge is giving guests a chance to forgo the stress and get back to the real meaning of the turkey day with its Thanksgiving Mid-week Retreat. Guests will indulge in a relaxing respite while leaving the task of feast preparation in the competent hands of Executive Chef John Georgvich. The retreat takes place November 21st to 23rd and is $399 per couple, featuring an extra night for $100.
The package comes complete with two nights in a luxurious fireside Jacuzzi suite and a sumptuous Thanksgiving meal. Guests can relax in our Great Room beside a roaring fire, take a rigorous hike through the Cook Forest, or soak the tension away in a private Jacuzzi.
The Thanksgiving buffet will feature Turkey with stuffing and cranberry sauce, roasted vegetable lasagna, chili whipped sweet potatoes, roasted winter vegetables, green beans, cranberry walnut tossed salad, pecan pumpkin pie with homemade cinnamon whipped cream and sweet honey cornbread. The dinner is $25 per person without the package.
Thanks to a heavy smattering of evergreen trees, the Cook Forest State Park casts an emerald glow year round. There are plenty of hiking trails still calling for exploration, late into the winter. Those looking for a different kind of serenity can explore the quaintness of nearby Brookville or Clarion for a menagerie of antique shopping or dining experiences.

The Lodge and Cabins have partnered with multiple area businesses to offer educational workshops on topics such as nature, art, nutrition and wellness.
