The co-space is a renovated 1920’s boarding home in the heart of State College. Unlike any other property in the region, it has been designed to support and encourage creativity, community, and innovation. Among other things, you will find everything from indoor rock climbing walls to recording studios. The property has a wrap-around porch, perfect for enjoying warm evenings on.

** The is an old home from the 1920's. We have done thorough renovations of the space but it still has it's unique quirks and character. We like to let folks know of this beforehand because the home is not a newly built hotel or apartment building.


Our guest room is located in the rear of the home, accessible through a ‘cave staircase’ near the back door by the kitchen (which goes upstairs, not down. These stairs are also quite steep so please be careful when climbing them). At the top of the stairs on the second floor, you’ll find the private bedroom and bathroom. The bedroom is 200 sqft and includes a twin daybed, pop-up trundle, desk and closet space. The room has plenty of space for a single visitor. If traveling with a partner, you can pop the trundle bed up for a second mattress, but please note that the two beds will fill up most of the room.

** Please note that our home is located in the heart of downtown State College. On certain weekends throughout the year, it may be noisy because of football weekends or parties nearby. If you are a light sleeper, this may not be the most ideal space for you.


All residents of the co-space have been carefully selected through an application process to find those deeply committed to living in community and fully pursuing their changemaking journeys. Co-spacers have a wide-range of interests, including sustainability, entrepreneurship, innovation, and healthy living.


Every Sunday and Wednesday we join together for a house meal at 7pm. This is a time to reconnect as a family and invite community members into our home to share their journey with us. If you happen to be staying with us on one of these days, we would love for you to join us! We also have occasional events and activities in the home – such as house concerts or local meet-ups.
