Our apartment is perfect for the traveler who is looking for basic accommodations, but wants a little more room to spread out than a standard hotel room offers. Minutes to Penn State, but "away from it all" -- a perfect home base for your visit!
Clean, cozy efficiency/studio apartment available for short-term rentals. Only 2.5 miles from Beaver Stadium & Bryce Jordan Center. In a quiet neighborhood, but close to everything! Mount Nittany, Spring Creek Park, and bike path to various destinations are all moments away. With your own entrance and parking spot, you can come and go as you please.
A queen-size bed and a queen-size futon offer flexible sleeping configurations for two people. Maximum two-person occupancy, two-night minimum stay.
Coffee/tea & towels/linens provided. Wi-fi available.
The kitchen is for light use only. For guests who plan to do a lot of cooking during their stay, this is not a suitable fit (see more information below).
Things to keep in mind:
This apartment is on a limited-service bus line (no weekend service) and is *not* within walking distance to downtown State College. Guests staying in the apartment would do best if they have a car. Apartment does *not* have a TV or air conditioning. This apartment is in the lower level of our home. We will be home during rental periods, and are looking for renters who are reasonably quiet after 10 p.m.
We do have one cat, but the cat has never entered the apartment.
No smoking in the apartment. We are happy to provide an ashtray for outside smoking upon request.
The apartment is attached to our home, but a separate entity in terms of access. Guests have their own space completely separate from our household.
Interaction with guests
The apartment is in the lower level of our home. Guests can let themselves into the apartment via a keypad. If we aren't home to greet you, we'll stop by to say hello. After that, we have little additional contact with them, unless they seek us out.
Other things to note
We do not charge a cleaning fee, and expect our guests to perform a very basic clean-up upon checking out (washing their dishes, putting their trash into a trashcan, wiping off counters, that kind of thing). Our kitchen is for light use only. No highly fragrant foods, high-heat cooking, etc. due to limited ventilation and a very sensitive smoke alarm. We will charge a $100 air-out fee if guests create strong food odors that will require our additional effort to get rid of.
Two-person maximum occupancy. The only exceptions are for children under 12. Two-night minimum stay. No smoking. No drugs. No pets. Check-in is 4 p.m. Checkout is 11:00 a.m. Exceptions can be negotiated in advance. Quiet hours between 11:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. Due to limited ventilation, kitchen is for light use only - no high-heat frying, strong-smelling foods, etc. A $100 air-out fee will be charged if we have to spend considerable time and effort getting rid of food smells.
We are easy-going people with some extra space to share. We enjoy meeting all the people that rent our apartment, but we give plenty of privacy and space so you can enjoy yourselves on your visit to State College. Once we get you checked in, you'll see very little of us, unless of course you need something or have a problem.
