Great house & location

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 5 stay at this property for a football weekend. Everything was perfect and comfortable- and the location is the best. Walking distance to downtown and campus, which was important to our group. The owners were very prompt in communication & thorough with instructions during our stay. I will definitely stay here again for a football weekend next season.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We planned a reunion for Homecoming with many of us traveling in from all across the country. The house was absolutely perfect for us with an easy walk into town yet in a quiet neighborhood. The owner was great to work with and extremely accommodating. We'll be back!

Perfect Football Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My family, a few friends and I stayed at the house for the epic Ohio State weekend and couldn't have asked for a greater house to stay in. The location is great, the house is spacious but cozy and very clean. Walking distance to town, only a few blocks from Beaver Ave in a quiet and beautiful neighborhood. Tim was wonderful to work with and very nice guy. Would totally rent from here again. Go Penn State!

Graduation Weekend - "home-style"

  • 5 of 5

Graduation is a family event, so why limit yourself to a hotel lobby when you could be nestled in this charming State College home, minutes from downtown and the PSU campus.... This lovely house was comfortable, clean, conveniently located and the perfect setting for accommodating a family dinner to honor our Penn State Graduate. With 3 bedrooms, sheets/towels provided, a vast first-floor living space, and outdoor patio/deck, we were able to relax and enjoy the entire weekend without being restricted to a stodgy hotel room. Coordination of the rental was effortless and convenient, as the owner was responsive. WE ARE - PENN STATE & WE ARE sure to vacation here again!

Great for Football Weekends

  • 5 of 5

My friends and family enjoyed our stay at this home. It is far enough away so that it is quiet and enjoyable, but at the same time close enough to all of the downtown spots. I would definitely contact the owner again to rent this home for another football weekend.
