An easy two-hour drive east on Interstate 90 takes you a world away to a mountain resort that caters to every family member.
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.
A GETAWAY THAT’S NOT FAR AWAY
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.
AN EXPANDED AND UPGRADED RESORT
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.
THE RIGHT STUFF
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....
