We are located just five miles from Punxsutawney, Gobblers Knob, and PA state gamelands. You’ll be close to DuBois, Brookville, Indiana, and Pennsylvania Amish Country as well. There is also a nearby archery store, Jackson Run Outfitters.
Jackson Run Bed & Breakfast is located approximately five minutes from Gobblers Knob, which is where Punxsutawney Phil looks for his shadow every February 2nd. The movie Groundhog Day is based on Phil's February 2nd prediction and the events in Punxsutawney, PA that revolve around Groundhog Day. If Phil sees his shadow, it means there will be six more weeks of winter weather. If Phil does not see his shadow, spring is right around the corner. If you come to Punxsutawney on Groundhog Day to see Phil make his prediction, be sure you bring your winter gear, as it is often one of the coldest days of the year. Groundhog Day is not the only day the public can see Phil, however. You can see him all year round in his home located at the Groundhog Zoo at the Library, at the center town park, Barclay Square.
