Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • I really enjoyed my stay in State College and this especially because of the nice home I stayed in for the time of my visit there. Elizabeth is a great person and host, most responsible with her guests and always to be reached, and the house is very cozy and feels easily like home. It was also lovely to stay with other guests in the house there, all shared rooms/facilities are in good shape and most functional. I also very much appreciated that I could use a bike to get around, though the house is so centrally located that one can also easily walk downtown/university (10-15 min).

  • I was in State College for 1 week. The weather was quite cold but it was very cozy in Elizabeth's house, in a very nice and quiet neighborhood. The room was comfortable and I found the kitchen to be quite functional. Cohabitation with other guests was pleasant and Elizabeth was a very sweet and welcoming host. As I did not have a car, I also appreciated the fact that I could walk downtown (10-15 min) and also walk to get my groceries (20-25 min).

  • Although unfortunately I didn't get to meet Elizabeth in person as she wasn't in town during my stay, I had a wonderful stay at the room in State College. I was in touch with Elizabeth by email, she was very quick to respond to my messages and very clear - overall, our communication couldn't have been better. Both the home and the room were great, close (walking distance) to both Penn State campus and downtown area. Definitely a place and host I would recommend :)
