Give it a Rest: PA’s Unique Lodging

For some, lodging is simply a place to rest their weary heads before moving on to somewhere else. For others, the accommodation IS the destination - a journey that leads to the quaint, to the elegant, to the sometimes quirky, but always to the distinctive. So go ahead, pack your overnight bag and get ready for a fun and truly one-of-a-kind Pennsylvania adventure. There’s a reason the industry refers to this type of accommodation as “unique lodging.”
