About Benn Batterson

I was born and raised in Potter County. After meeting my wife and graduating from college we moved back to the area. The previous owner of Valley Vista of 35 years is a dear friend. After he decided to move closer to family and milder climates we were offered the Lodge to make our own memories.

We currently live and raise our family on a sheep farm in Potter County. We strive to provide a childhood of years gone past for our three children

Benn Batterson purchased this lodge in 2015

Why Benn Batterson chose Galeton

We purchased this property as our retirement home. We had looked at building a home with a similar view but Valley Vista came on the market and we loved the location and layout. The privacy and quiet provides a peaceful setting

What makes this lodge unique

The gorgeous views both from the tower and lodge porch make Vista unique. Anything from stars to sunsets and wildlife in between. The Lodge sits on top of a ridge bordering 250,000 acres of State Forest with hiking trails and old roads to explore.

You will be visiting a Lodge that was established in the early 1970s. The Lodge in previous years provided guided hunting and outdoor activities to sports. Over time the Lodge has been updated completely with Central Air and Knotty Pine interior. An observation tower was also built to enjoy even greater views. We have added a 12x12 Concrete Telescope Pad.

Beautiful cabin with amazing views from the 'tower' deck. Benn and Thankful are the most gracious hosts. Only regret is that we had to go home too soon.

Valley Vista Lodge mountain bike vacation

  • 5 of 5

Everything was very nice and a great place to stay! The view is awesome and the observation tower with patio like setting on top to view the stars (full moon while we were there!) was a real nice bonus and the host was very accommodating! It was very quiet and a great place to ride our mountain bikes around the area! Can recommend this place to go!
