Bucolic retreat for PSU weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Four PSU alumni families shared this house for the Pitt-Penn State game. It couldn't have worked out any better! The home is a beautiful drive down Rt 45 from State College and is in the heart of Amish country. The setting is gorgeous. We loved hanging on the porch and mostly in the big dining area talking into the night. And the fisherman in the group got two sessions in during the weekend! The price was phenomenal for a big game weekend as well.

Jim was available for all my questions which I appreciated. I thought the drive would be really far from State College but the 40 minute drive went fast because it's so pretty and we didn't hit any traffic! Truly a Happy Valley weekend!

Beautiful and charming home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Creek House. James was a friendly and helpful resource, giving us tips for what to do in the area. The house was charming and beautiful and the nature surrounding it was stunning. Our kids played for hours down by the creek and we are already making plans to go back to this house next year!

Great vibe

  • 5 of 5

Five of us enjoyed staying at this property in mid April. We were in the area on an annual fishing trip and were pleasantly surprised by the spaciousness of the property. The pictures don't do the place justice (more to view on Airbnb). Perfectly positioned for outdoor activities, yet appointed well enough to more than enjoy yourself if the weather doesn't cooperate. Something incredibly relaxing about lounging on the porch, while listening to the stream out front and hearing the sound of horse shoes occasionally trotting along the hard road.

The owner kept great communication, affording privacy, while ensuring we were enjoying our stay. All in all, a great experience in a very cool house. We'll be returning next year!

Great weekend stay for some fishing!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed for a couple days of trout fishing in nearby streams. I'd say the profile pictures did a pretty good job describing the place. It's an older home with a bit of clutter around the exterior, but they've done a nice job renovating the interior and created an open floor plan that is great for a group with a large kitchen / dining area flowing into a living area. Note it is an older home so it has creaks and quirks, but that was expected from the pics and description. Plenty of private rooms for a bunch of folks. There's also a huge grass yard that fronts Elk Creek that had a badminton net which was a hit with the kids - the very large yard is not readily apparent in the pictures, so that was a bonus. Everything in the house worked as described, including the Wi-Fi and we had no issues. Note that the portion of Elk Creek that fronts the property is not stocked with trout, but there were a few in there that were either wild or migrated up from Penns or down from the upper reaches of Elk that is stocked. Would stay there again.
