Built in 1869 and renovated in the 1920s, the Penn Wells Hotel graces Wellsboro’s quaint, gas lit Main Street. The Philadelphia Inquirer in the 1920s called the Hotel “the Gem of the Roosevelt Highway,” recognizing its location on the Historic Route 6 corridor between New York and Chicago. The Hotel is noted for its mahogany woodwork, high ceilings, wood-burning lobby fireplaces, and for famous guests Groucho Marx and Joan Crawford. The surrounding area offers miles of scenic and secluded hiking and biking trails, including those located at the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania and the acclaimed Pine Creek Rail Trail. The Hotel’s grand dining room features historic photos and is the venue for fine-dining service, weddings, and groups.
