Weekend Itinerary in Bellefonte   

Day 1: Make the Trip From Philadelphia PA to Bellefonte  

Since Philadelphia is only a 3 ½ hour’s drive from Bellefonte, a road trip is a perfect way to get here. Leave in the morning, stop for lunch in Harrisburg, and be in Bellefonte by mid-afternoon. Once you’re here, feel free to take a little soak in the jetted tub or explore the nooks and crannies around the Inn. The first floor includes a Parlor, Billard’s Room, and the Dining Room.   

Now that you’ve settled into your room, it’s time to explore Bellefonte. Bellefonte, PA, is a charming Victorian town with plenty of ways to take in the beauty of the natural surroundings. Talleyrand Park, unique antique shops, and many historical sites are within walking distance of the Reynolds Mansion Bed and Breakfast. Bellefonte is also home to a lovely art museum and if you’re into family ancestry, walk to the Centre County Library’s Historical Museum. It’s free and super informative.  

By now, you’ve worked up an appetite, stop by Big Spring Spirits, a local distillery, for a cocktail or Good Intent Cider for some hard cider, or visit one of our yummy restaurants like Creekside at the Gamble Mill or The Governor’s Pub. Don’t forget to end your night with a visit to the Snuggery, where you can enjoy a complimentary glass of brandy and chocolates!  

Day 2: Spend the Day Exploring In and Around Bellefonte  

Why not add a little adventure to your weekend here? Whether you’re a beginner or an avid fisherman, there are plenty of great spots to fly fish in Pennsylvania! Our limestone streams offer some of the best fly fishing on the East coast. Plus, there’s fly fishing available within walking distance of the mansion on Spring Creek and more than 57 miles of streams and creeks to explore within a 45-minute drive of Bellefonte, with wild brown trout galore!

There are so many ways to enjoy Bellefonte! If you’re looking for a different exploration, you can visit Penn’s Cave! Here, you can take a boat ride through the cave, eat lunch at their on-site café, travel by jeep on the cave rock mountain tour, and pan for gold at Prospector Pete’s Sluice.
