Home away from home :)
Home away from home :)
This was a perfect fit for us. Our four year old loved sitting on the front porch and looking out the upstairs window at the windmills. Very nicely equipped and a great value for the price. If you are into running, Mansion Park as one of the nicest tracks I have ever been on. Much thanks to the owners of this property and we will sure be staying there again.

Owner response: Matt: Thank you for your nice review, we very much appreciate you taking the time to write. We are happy you had a nice visit. We never thought about the "windmill" view, I guess we have learned to take them for granted. Your family is welcome back anytime, either to Altoona or our Bedford Home if available. Thank you.
"AWESOME" Rental House
"AWESOME" Rental House
We "HIGHLY" Recommend this Rental House in Altoona! Everything was very clean and in super condition - even nicer than pictured. Everything that we needed for our 13 day stay in Altoona was here at the house! We had a family reunion and for a few days my sister and brother in law stayed with us - plenty of room for 4 people to relax and be comfortable. It was great to have room to move, relax and walk around instead of a living in a small Motel room! This house is convenient to everything - Hoss's Restaurant was next door with wonderful food and a terrific salad and desert bar! Dairy Queen, grocery store and a pharmacy were nearby also. This house had a wonderful view and beautiful sunsets from the front porch swing. In the evenings we sat on the back patio and even played corn hole. The beds were comfortable and the air conditioning was great since July was so hot. It's a nice quiet, friendly neighborhood for walking also. Thank you Cheryl for sharing this wonderful house with us - we enjoyed our stay and hope to come back next summer.

Owner response: Jean and John: Thank you so much for the wonderful review. It makes all of our time and hard work we put into the home worth it. We keep saying we need to take time and check out the sunsets from the front porch swing everyone talks about but still yet to do it. I enjoy going and cleaning and walking to Dairy Queen for a treat! Everything is so convenient to the home. All though it is not a newer home we have furnished it with all new furnishings and it is a very homey home. You are welcome back anytime, just please plan ahead as we do stay pretty well occupied! We have a similar home setup in Bedford which I have had the opportunity to stay once in awhile, it is a very cute, clean home within walking distance of downtown Bedford. There has been a tenant there since opening it however so I'm anxious to test the shorter term rentals in that market as well. Again, thank you for your time and kind words. Sheryl
Great house, no problems.
Great house, no problems.
Exactly what we were looking for. Was in town for a wedding and didn't want to stay in a hotel. House was in great shape.. Washer/dryer worked perfectly and it was great to have a kitchen. Would stay again.

Owner response: Hi Chris: Thank you for taking the time to write your response and thank you for letting the house in clean condition! You are welcome back anytime, and happy to hear it suit your needs as expected. Thank you.
Beautiful house! Well equipped. Great location. Close to restaurants and shopping. Property was very clean and well maintained. Loved the decor! We especially enjoyed the screened-in porch every evening! Made for an enjoyable happy hour! The owner was nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend this property! Much better than a motel and the price is very reasonable! My friend and I came to PA to do some biking. We biked Ghost Town Trail, but our favorite trail was Lower Trail. We highly recommend this trail for biking, walking or running. Easy ride for 16 and 1/2 miles one way. Offers picnic areas and benches all along the trail, as well as a beautiful river! We enjoyed our stay in Altoona.

Owner response: Jo, Thank you so much for taking the time to write the great review! We appreciate it very much. Also happy to hear you had a great time and that you enjoyed the trail. Welcome back anytime.
We chose this location as my daughter was graduating from PSU's University Park Campus, and ALL of the hotels were booked a year in advance (very slight exageration). My daughter spent her first two years at the Altoona Campus and is familiar with the area, it was her suggestion to locate a house rental in Altoona that will get us to State College with minimal fussing. I couldn't have chosen better, my son and granddaughter came over from the UK to attend, on arrival at the house and after a good look around, my son said, this house is spotless, it's "your kind of clean mum". We were duly impressed, everything was better than described, and in place. Thank you for allowing us to rent your property, it took away some of the stresses that led up to the graduation ceremony. Next time I want to get away for a week, I'll be thinking of coming back. I have also referred three other people to contact you. Thank you again.

Owner response: Marrian: What a nice review. Thank you so much for taking the time to write, we appreciate it very much. We work really hard to keep the home clean and in good condition and it makes it all worth while when folks notice. I am so happy your family was able to make it your home away from home and wish your daughter the best in the future. Thank you for the referrals. We look forward to having you back as well. Thank you.
Home was clean and ready to go as always. A snow storm moved into the area while I was there and it was greatly appreciated that the snow on the sidewalk and driveway was quickly removed. I see no reason to look for any other place to stay around the Altoona area on any future trips.

Owner response: We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We work hard at keeping the home up to par for everyones enjoyment. We appreciate the kind words. We do our best to get over to clear the snow, hopefully it will soon be done for this year. Thank you.
In town for work, I found this property to be a very pleasant alternative to an extended hotel stay. The house has been recently remodeled and was extremely clean, and very comfortable. The location of the property is convenient to any Altoona centered activities with several restaurants within walking distance. The owners were very helpful during the rental process, and for their advice concerning local business establishments. During my stay I was so busy with work that I didn't have time to thoroughly investigate all of the many restaurants in the area but can heartily recommend the "The Meadows" Frozen Custard stands (the best frozen custard I've ever eaten), as well as the "Grape Leaf Grill" for their tasty Mediterranean fare. I will look forward to renting this home again whenever I'm in town.

We came to Altoona for a longtime friend's wedding and were ecstatic when we found a house for rent (the only one in the area on vrbo). The house was everything we could have hoped for at a great price. Many other guests at the wedding were shocked that we had a two bedroom house for less than the cost of their hotel rooms! The house is fully equipped with everything you could need and is very comfortable and relaxing. It is convenient to everything in Altoona and the surrounding area. Thank you Sheryl for sharing your house with us.

Owner response: Hi Jamie: I am so happy the two of you enjoyed our home! I did not realize you could see sunsets from the swing on the front porch. I guess I need to take the time one of these days and check it out. Also, that you for the wonderful review, we really apprecaite you taking the time out of your day to do so. We work hard on the house and reviews from all of our guest make it worth while. You know you are welcome back again if the need arises and I wish you the best on your property as well. Thank you.

I felt very welcomed at the moment that I open the door; your home covered all the things that I needed. I enjoyed every moment that I stayed there but the moments that I did admired more were when I was sitting at the porch to enjoy the beautiful sunsets that I had in those days they were precious and kept in my heart. Sincerely thank you for letting me use your home as my home. Muchas Gracias!!!! :-)

Owner response: America: We are so happy you enjoyed your visit. We did not know there were such amazing sunsets from the swing on the front porch till you and our most recent guest wrote about it. Hopefully the house will be vacant some evening and we will have the time to check it out. It has been pretty much reserved since we opened it, which is a good thing. You are welcome back anytime and again thank you so much for taking the time to write the nice review.
Beautifully renovated gem
Beautifully renovated gem
My husband and I stayed here for eight days while visiting family in Altoona. The house is newly renovated, decorated with comfortable furniture, rooms are bright and everything is very clean. The kitchen was well equiped and even has a dishwasher. We were only there for breakfast each day, but a meal could easily be prepared there. Having a laundry room available was wonderful. This perfectly located rental is a gem for Altoona and we look forward to staying there again.
