About this listing
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.
Well-equipped kitchen, coffee/tea & towels/linens provided. Wi-fi available. Maximum two-person occupancy, two-night minimum stay.
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.
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. We try to be home to greet our guests and make sure they're settled into the apartment OK. Once in a while, we can't be home to greet guests, in which case we make sure they know how to get into the apartment, and then try to connect once we get home. When we know our guests are settled and have what they need, we generally have little additional contact with them, unless they seek us out.
We're in a residential neighborhood. There are no services (shops, gas stations, etc.) in our neighborhood.
We are on the C route of the Centre Area Transportation Authority bus line. There are also several taxi companies in the area.
Two-night minimum stay. No smoking. No drugs. No pets. Check-in is typically 4 p.m. Checkout is typically 11:00 a.m. We can often accommodate other arrangements, but will need to hammer out such details in advance. Quiet hours between 11:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m.
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.
