The Back in the Day Guest House sits in the quaint, historic town of Wellsboro in the heart of Tioga County, Pennsylvania and is perfectly located for your getaway vacation or business travel needs.

The guest house is conveniently located:

A 1/2-mile walk from the historic downtown Wellsboro

Guests can enjoy the authentic gaslights that illuminate Main Street, relax on the Green (town park), dine at a variety of restaurants, take in a movie, explore local shops, and visit the art gallery. In early June, the town hosts the Susquehannock Trail Performance Rally® (STPR®) racing event. In mid-June, the PA State Laurel Festival offers a variety of entertaining events for the entire family. And, in early December, Wellsboro gets into the holiday spirit with its charming Dickens of Christmas weekend. http://wellsboropa.com/

Three miles from the Pine Creek Rail Trail

Guests can hike, bicycle, cross-country ski, and even horseback ride the 62+ mile multipurpose trail that runs along the bottom of the PA Grand Canyon. The trail begins north of Wellsboro and ends in Jersey Shore, Pa. http://www.visittiogapa.com/railtrail.html

Eight miles from the Pine Creek Gorge – Pennsylvania Grand Canyon

The Pine Creek Gorge is approximately one mile wide, 800 feet deep, and continues for 47 miles. The 585-acre Leonard Harrison State Park (East Rim) provides guests with modern facilities and a visitor center. While on the opposite side, the 368-acre Colton Point State Park (West Rim) echoes a more rustic ambience with Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) built facilities. Both sides offer spectacular and breathtaking views, picnic areas, hiking trails, and an abundance of wildlife.
