Cooksburg, PA (PRWEB) May 22, 2014
Known for its striking natural surroundings and inviting accommodation, Gateway Lodge and several local partners have come together to offer one more reason to visit the PA Wilds- a series of comprehensive, restorative retreats. They range from an annual Retreat to Wellness Weekend to totally tailored packages for groups of 15 or more.
The PA Wilds region is located in Northern Pennsylvania and features millions of acres of unspoiled forests and mountains, making it ideal for outdoor activities. Visit http://www.visitpa.com/pennsylvania-region-and-city-map for more information.
The collaboration was spearheaded by last year’s PA Wilds’ Conference, “Connecting to Nature, Economy and Community Character.” Gateway Lodge worked with members from Quiet Creek Herb Farm, DCNR, Jefferson County, and Western PA Small Business Administration to create an extensive list of wellness options, all to be enjoyed amidst the beautiful backdrop of Cook Forest.
Offerings include interpretive tours of Cook Forest and Clear Creek State Parks, healthful living workshops from Quiet Creek Herb Farm, and spa treatments, meditation and yoga from Gateway Lodge. A comprehensive educational series includes classes on wildcrafting, geocaching, horseback riding, soil stewardship, conservation, cooking and much, much more. Activities can be selected and arranged according to each group’s needs through the Lodge’s Events Coordinator.
Locally sourced, healthy meals are also prepared by Gateway Lodge’s Executive Chef and can be customized for any discerning palate and/or dietary restriction. All of this is presented on the Lodge’s beautiful grounds featuring luxury fireside jacuzzi suites and access to an inspiring log-lined meeting room.
Gateway Lodge is located in the PA Wilds’ Cook Forest State Park, a national landmark for its hemlock and white pine trees. Built in 1934, the property includes its original log cabin with chestnut timber and a stone chimney.
