by Lauren Gooch & Johanna Vogt – Janaury 3, 2017

The Sherwood Motel, located within walking distance of Wellsboro’s finest shops, restaurants, and attractions, is the perfect place for your family vacation or a romantic getaway. Their 42 non-smoking, spacious, and comfortable rooms feature cable TV with HBO, individual heat and air conditioning controls, free Wi-Fi, microwaves, mini refrigerators, and more. No matter which accommodations you’re searching for, The Sherwood Motel seeks to provide a large variety of quality rooms and services.

Home Page correspondents, Johanna Vogt and Lauren Gooch spoke with co-owner, Marsha Chesko about the history of The Sherwood Motel. In 1886, Walter Sherwood, a lawyer with Owlet & Sherwood, built the house that is now the Sherwood Motel, and owned it until the early 1950s. It was a boarding house until the West Family bought it in 1951 and turned it into a motel. In 2003, Bob and Marsha Chesko renovated the rooms. For almost 14 years, they have continued to serve their guests.

Each morning, there is complimentary coffee, hot tea, and hot chocolate in the lobby from 7:00 am to 9:00 am. They even offer golf packages for either the Tyoga Country Club or the Corey Creek Golf Club. For more information or to make reservations, please visit their website or call (570) 724-3424.
