We decided to take a last minute get away, Called and was told they had a cancelation and that was the only weekend available. Being flexible with travel plans, I made a reservation. Jackson, at the front desk, made the process quick and easy. From the moment we arrived, the staff was welcoming and helpful. Our room was available a little early, so we were able to check in. (Thank you Hayley) The room was clean and spacious with a view of the forest. Breakfast was provided from 7-10 and was very good. The view of the lake and surrounding area was beautiful. A big thank you to Jackson and Hayley for all you do to make your guest stay so special. Looking forward to a return visit.

We have had a lot of medical "stuff" for 8 months now. We had to reschedule once, and the Inn was very good about transferring our deposit. The "green" e virulent enha ces the stay. Beautiful surroundings, wonderful food, room amenities, and staff. I'm sure they hear this often, but we will be back...

The Nature Inn itself is beautifully constructed, and I was surprised to hear that it was built in 2010, as I would have sworn it was nearly brand new based on how clean and well maintained it was. I spent 3 nights in a "large suite". Unfortunately, all of the "large suites" face away from the lake, but I did enjoy the lesser view from my porch. Bird feeders were full and the birds were putting on a show for us. The beds were very comfortable. Plenty of dresser space, but limited closet space. Kitchenette was a nice touch, with a toaster oven, microwave, small fridge, and sink. Basic dishes and cutlery, fine for heating up leftovers, but not for actually cooking a meal. Did not eat lunch or dinner there, but the daily breakfast was fine. Eggs, meat, potatoes, oatmeal, bread, pastries, and juice, with that beautiful view of the lake. Coffee and tea were available in the lobby all day. All staff we encountered were friendly and attentive. Hiking trails on site were pretty basic, not anything special, but good for a stroll around the property. The main loop is about 2 miles long. Now that I have discovered this place, I'll definitely return.

If you are looking for a place to just relax and connect with nature, this is the hotel for you. Situated in Bald Eagle State Park, the Nature Inn offers a unique and wonderful getaway whether it be for a week or just a day. First the property itself is beautiful surrounded by nothing but trees and a lake view. There are plenty of trails that pass through here if you are interested in hiking. The beach area for the lake isn't too far either if you want to hop in your car and do some water activities. There is also some great bird watching and they have bird feeders all over the property. If you are not an outdoorsy person, its a great place to just escape and relax with a good book. I like the property size. There are 16 rooms so its not too big or small, but just right. There is plenty of space in both the indoor and outdoor common areas where you can socialize if you want; but plenty of places to find solitude. I was there for a themed weekend they offer, called birds and brews. It was a great experience for me, my husband, and 2 friends who joined us. The inn had speakers and programs that were optional to attend to learn more about the birds in the area; as well as some local brews from breweries and cideries to sample that weekend. The food was excellent. Breakfast is included in your stay, but we got extra meals included with our package weekend. The rooms are clean and comfortable. I like how the rooms are not super luxury as that wouldn't fit the setting of this eco-friendly hotel. However, they have the right amenities to make you feel at home. I highly recommend taking however many days you can spare and booking a stay here!

-Sigh- Upon checking out I made the joke about wanting to skip the review so I’d have more opportunities to book here but, I’ll go ahead and write it because you guys deserve it! I was able to squeeze in at the Inn for a few days during my son’s spring break. The location is fabulous. The view is fabulous. The staff are fabulous. The accommodations are fabulous…detect the pattern here? There is ample opportunity here for outdoor enthusiasts from birding, fishing, hunting walking/hiking and in the summer when the water is warmer, swimming. My son and I thoroughly enjoyed our stress free relaxing stay. We hit the jackpot on days because it was suppose to rain but it mostly held off AND the temps were in the 70’s-80’s for a hint at warmer weather to come. All-together this my son’s and my favorite new secret spot…and I think that makes #800 for the reviews (inside joke). Thanks again staff!

A great place to stay over our chilly 2022 spring break. We are so grateful to the kind staff. The Nature Inn is so clean and well cared for. The view from our room is gorgeous despite the cold and snow. Game night in the library is excellent! All of our food was fresh and filling. We’re looking forward to another trip!

Everything about the Inn made it a wonderful experience. The staff was accommodating and friendly, the rooms comfortable and spacious. The breakfast was yummy and plentiful with many options from which to choose. We got to hike a little bit but not nearly as much as we would have liked. There are many great trails available, most of which are easy to navigate, even for us sassy seniors! This is the fourth time I have stayed here and am looking forward to returning soon. Highly recommend.

We stayed one night at the Nature Inn in mid-November. What a wonderful place! We enjoyed hiking the grounds and bird-watching, and played a board game in the library. The rooms and amenities are top-notch. We ordered dinner the night before our stay and were very impressed with both the quality and quantity of food. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely plan to stay here again when in the area.

The Nature Inn is a wonderful hidden gem. I only wish we had more time to explore the grounds and hiking trails. Nice buffet breakfast is included. You can order box lunches in advance for pick up. Same with limited dinner selections depending on the night. They have several built in gas grills on their outdoor patio if you care to BBQ. We only had breakfast which was good, and free. We were not there for lunch or dinner. We had dinner at restaurants outside of the park, where the locals tend to go, and it was awesome. As a PA State Park signage says alcohol is prohibited (I don't know whether or how they enforce it). HOWEVER, YOU ARE ALLOWED TO POSSESS AND CONSUME ALCOHOL AT THE INN and its grounds. The only place in the park that it's allowed. So bring your own. Refrigerators are in the rooms. An Ice machine on the 1st floor.
