3 Ways to Make Your Staycation in the Laurel Highlands the Best it Can Be 

Reconnect with Nature 

One of the best features of the Laurel Highlands is the variety of state parks and preserves it offers. Take some time to explore nature during your staycation and take a deep breath of fresh air. Your lungs probably need it, and so does your mind. Here are some of our favorite trails to go hiking or biking: 

Peruse the Local Flea Markets 

Is there anything more fun than exploring local markets? If that’s one of your favorite weekend activities, you’ll love the Laurel Highlands. After a leisurely hike in nature, get back in your car and drive to some of our favorite flea markets. Who knows, you might find treasures to bring home with you! Saturday’s Farmers and Flea Market, for example, is one you cannot miss. It opened its doors in the 1950s and has been one of the biggest flea markets in Pennsylvania ever since! 

Pamper Yourself 

You simply cannot have a staycation without some well-deserved rest. Luckily for you, the Laurel Highlands offers that too. When you stay at Oak Lodge, you get access to our private, in-house spa and its variety of services. Do you fancy a Swedish massage? Do you prefer a soothing facial? The choice is yours, and so is the relaxation. Did you know we also offer specials to make your trip even better? Whether you are celebrating a milestone in your relationship or wish to add a little pampering to your staycation, our packages are for you. 

Book Your Staycation at Oak Lodge

After all, what would a staycation be without a cozy place to stay! Oak Lodge is one of the best B&Bs in the Laurel Highlands. It’s a place where nature meets luxury, and where you can unwind in style. Stay in one of our high-end cabins, for example. There, you can draw yourself a hot bath, sip on a glass of wine by the fireplace, and wake up to the chirping of birds right outside your window. Did we mention our delicious breakfast served every morning?
