Rediscover – A Four Seasons Resort – Peek’n Peak- A Mountain Playground with No Age Limit

Rediscover – A Four Seasons Resort – Peek’n Peak- A Mountain Playground with No Age Limit

An easy two-hour drive east on Interstate 90 takes you a world away to a mountain resort that caters to every family member.

Snowboarding? Check.

Spa service? Got it.

Fine dining? Of course.

Golf, swimming, banquet facilities, luxurious lodging — it’s handled.

And don’t forget the skiing. This is Peek’n Peak Resort and Spa, after all — a place with a well-deserved reputation as a skier’s paradise that has expanded into so much more.


Just 20 miles south of Erie, Pennsylvania, Peek’n Peak is in the state’s picturesque Chautauqua region. Not only is the area lovely, it also has the potential for abundant snowfall, even into early spring. The combination of hilly topography and snowfall has made it a skiing destination for decades.

As warm weather approaches, the opportunities for outdoor recreation expand far beyond skiing. It’s worth a visit to see the changes.


Heading off the highway through the winding, treelined roads you get a sense there’s something special around the final bend. The enormous hillsides peppered with skiers, snowboarders, tubers, chairlifts and the main lodge confirms it: you have arrived at a true resort.

The main buildings have an Old English theme— pitched roofs, thick timber framing with a Tudor-style look — that provides a rustic charm.


Peek’n Peak derives its name from the Pekin Hill, the original name of the mountain and homestead of the Pekin family. Originally built in 1964, Peek’n Peak was purchased in 2011 by Scott Enterprises, a third generation hospitality company with local roots.

The Scotts invested more than $10 million, introducing thoughtful upgrades and new attractions. They pumped money into key infrastructure, remodeled the hotel, installed cutting edge snow hill technology and upgraded equipment to ensure a professional and luxurious visit for guests.

Celebrating Our First Year

Editor's Note September/October 2016

Last fall we kicked off Northeast Ohio Boomer and Beyond magazine as an innovative publication for active adults 50 and older in Greater Cleveland. We have been thrilled to see the support that has come from numerous expected and unexpected places.

From the Medina Community Recreation Center to the Brecksville Women’s Club to the Menorah Park cafeteria, we thank you for welcoming Boomer and Beyond into your homes and businesses. We also thank those advertisers who have supported the magazine’s launch by believing in the reach and impact this publication can make.

We look forward to year two with anticipation and openness. We want to hear more from you, our trusted reader. What information do you need? What’s on your mind? What joys do you want to share and what concerns you? Reach out to me or to our editor Marie Elium and share what’s in your heart.


Now for this issue. Almost no one exemplifies the spirit of “Learn & Grow” more than radio favorite Jimmy Malone. The popular WMJI morning co-host has made a second career out of raising money for scholarships and mentoring young people as they navigate college and careers. Read more about Jimmy on page 26.

You’ve heard it said many times — Northeast Ohio is a melting pot. For more than a century, refugees and immigrants have made this region their home. You could say it’s a “learn-learn” opportunity; they figure out how to navigate their new neighborhoods, and long-time residents learn about different cultures and customs. A story about Akron’s newest residents begins on page 20.

Finally, this is the time of year for fall festivals and foliage, pigskins and pumpkins, and Medicare — specifically, Medicare enrollment. It’s a complicated subject. Our panel of experts clarifies the process. Their columns begin on page 32.
