Superb! Clean! Excellent value! Enjoyed my first visit so much that I booked a return trip---
Therese delivers superb accommodations and excellent value. Framed by breathtaking Pennsylvania countryside, Dancing Bear Farm is a quick ride from Interstate 80 and the perfect location for the guest who seeks serenity and calm.
Comfort is in the details for experienced travelers: comfortable high-quality mattress and cotton bedding, clean and sunny bath with plenty of hot water and big thirsty towels, Dancing Bear Farm left me refreshed and revived.
Therese cooked to-my-taste a delicious breakfast -- from her nesting hens, just-laid organic eggs topped wholesome grain toast and crunchy, artisan granola left me feeling satisfied.
I went out of my way to stay at Dancing Bear Farm and I'm glad!
I recently gave myself a day's retreat and found that Dancing Bear Farm was the perfect place to relax, share some meaningful conversation (Therese even asked whether I'd prefer solitude or company), and enjoy a yummy breakfast with homemade jams and other foods made by my host or others in the area. My room was pretty, extremely clean, with a bathroom next door stocked with everything I might need. This is a wonderful place that can accommodate families, group retreats, Bucknell parents, and couples...a lot of flexibility. Therese can even arrange for shiatsu or other massage treatments for guests. She is a warm, interesting person with a rich background in fostering peace through mediation here and overseas...and she is also very familiar with the area. (Try to visit on farmers market day, usually Weds.). The house was wonderful and the grounds seem to be (it was cold and pouring rain when I was there). Very good value...and good for my soul.
We stayed here almost on a whim and it was really wonderful! The grounds are gorgeous and the room and the bed are more than comfortable. Therese is a gracious host and made us a delicious breakfast, including eggs from the chickens on the property. We'd definitely go back.
Therese was so welcoming and accommodating to our schedule. Kept in close touch around the time we expected to arrive, making it easy for us to check in. The room was fine; very comfy bed, simple furnishings with the bear theme throughout the house. The surroundings seemed lovely and pastoral, though our schedule was a big busy to really enjoy it all. Therese made us a fabulous breakfast, even went out the night before to get great decaf coffee for us!
Sweet place, and Therese was very kind and friendly. She made a lovely breakfast.
This was a fantastic stay. Therese is a lovely accommodating and hospitable host. Our space and amenities were many and clean. It was easy to make ourselves at home. Very close to Bucknell University making for an easy stress free visit.
Great running trails out by the house as well.
Certainly a place I would stay again.
Took the family (2 boys 10 &12) on a long weekend to Little League World Series & Knoebels. Dancing Bear was in between both sites. Great base of operations for that trip. We stayed in the camper for our 1st ever B&B and "camping"/(glamping?)experience. We're hotel people for sure.
But it was perfect for us to ease into camping being able to shower and use the house bathroom. And Therese's breakfasts were awesome! The boys played on the hammock and in the pool.
It was so peaceful with the farm surrounding us, running water ponds, a campfire, and quiet. Therese was a great host--even sharing the abundance of her garden in breakfast. I would definitely recommend staying in the camper and Dancing Bear Farm for anyone looking to stay in the area for a relaxing time!
We really enjoyed staying at Dancing Bear Farm during our visit to Lewisburg. The house and accommodations, as well as the surrounding grounds, are beautiful! Absolutely breathtaking views, a pool, chickens, an area for children to play, pet friendly, and peaceful. Our room had plenty of sleeping options for us and had a wonderful cozy feeling. The bed we chose to sleep on could have been more comfortable, but everything else about our stay was perfect and Therese was a perfect host!
My husband, two young children and I stayed at Dancing Bear last week, and had a wonderful time! Theresa was very nice, and her amenities were great! Amenities include an in ground pool surrounded by lush gardens, hammocks to relax, a fire pit for an evening fire, and private accommodations to meet a families needs. Minutes from Dancing Bear Farm you can find shopping, dining, and family attractions. Very peaceful, secluded and we will definitely stay again. Thank You for sharing your farm with us.

Therese was a fantastic hostess and Dancing Bear Farm is a wonderfully relaxing place. Honestly, I almost felt like I was visiting family, except with less stress! Therese was flexible with the breakfast time and she served it fresh daily with variety of healthy options. Therese provided wonderful conversation when we wanted it, but was also very mindful quiet solitude we were seeking from time to time. We all felt very relaxed after only a couple of days with my boy noting, "this was so much better than a hotel!"
