Property description

The Borough of State College now requires a minimum rental of 7 nights. Please do not ask for a shorter rental period as we cannot offer shorter rentals under the current borough zoning regulations.

This newly remodeled and furnished 2200 square foot home is in downtown State College. Take the bus around town or walk downtown for dinner. Just 6 blocks to PSU campus. 3 Bedrooms + Beds in Finished Basement, 2.5 baths. Located on Prospect Ave just off Allen St in a quiet neighborhood, but very close to the downtown activities. Easy and relaxing walk to College and Beaver Ave.

BR#1: Queen with 35' TV
BR#2: Full
BR#3: Two Twins with 22' TV and built in DVD player
BR#4: Finished Basement, 1 Queen, 1 Twin, 1 twin pullout couch, and plenty of space for additional portable beds as needed. Includes 50' TV
TV Room: Full size couch with 39' TV

We live in the State College area and use this home for visiting family/friends, and out of town business clients. Therefore,the home is lightly furnished. Kitchen utensils, plates, coffee pot and Kuerig (K cups not included), pots/pans etc are provided. We recommend you supply your sheets, bedding, towels, etc. We will supply freshly dry cleaned linens and bedding for an additional $125 dry cleaning fee per visit. Just let us know at the time of booking if you'd like us to include the bedding. If bedding is provided, fresh and folded bedding will be placed on each bed for you to make up upon your arrival.

Thank you for your interest. You'll be very pleased with the property. The location is excellent.

Although this home is located 5 short blocks from Beaver Avenue, it is in a relatively quiet family neighborhood. Excessive noise will disturb the neighbors and will likely result in a noise violation. If you expect your group to be rowdy, please consider other options.

Please note:

1. Except for the below listed special events, we do not accept reservations more than 12 months in advance.

2. No more than 3 unrelated guests are permitted as required by borough ordinances.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: My wife Susan and I met at PSU as undergraduates in 1997 and after graduation in 1999, decided to stay in the area. After 8 years of working as a Mechanical Design Engineer, I returned to PSU and graduated with my MBA in 2009. My wife Susan has a background in Hotel Management (graduated PSU in Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Management 2000), a passion for real estate with an eye for interior design. She manages multiple rental properties around Central Pa and coordinates all travel arrangements for two local companies. We currently live in the State College area with 2 Children, Alex (11) and Ashley (9).

Why the Owner Chose State College:
We purchased this home from an estate auction with the intent of renovating and reselling. During the renovation, my wife fell in love with the house's charm and location. The downtown location is ideal for visiting friends and family and business clients, so we use these homes for personal and business use; however, we also make them available to others who are visiting the State College area and would appreciate the nostalgia of the property and the downtown location.
