Welcome to WellSpring Nature Center Retreat & Inn!

Tucked into a wooded hillside overlooking a small pond stands a 2 bedroom inn: the heart of the WellSpring Nature Center Retreat and Inn. On clear nights the Great Milky Way will be your nightlight, and the calls of the night birds and spring-time peepers your lullaby. Greet the morning sun as you stand on the inn’s deck overlooking the pond. The meandering Genesee River is just across the road, and the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains guard your rest from every direction. It's quiet and peaceful here at the WellSpring Nature Center Retreat and Inn.

My daughter and I have enjoyed staying at the cabin. What a delight for a 10-year old to see frogs at the pond, and bunnies in the front yard! The view is amazing, the cabin was so clean and inviting. Thank you so much for this opportunity.

WellSpring is named for the gravity fed springs that supply the pond and the Inn with cold, clear, clean water. Some of the trails pass by these springs.
