Its a single family house so you can easily slip down stairs to have some coffee and watch tv without bothering anyone else. If you are jumping between hotel apps and airbnb, this is definitely the best deal.

This is an entire house 2 story house with a fully equipped kitchen, diningroom, and livingroom. Only two of the bedrooms are completely private. The house can sleep 6, but I think its better suited for 4.

It has a small fenced yard for pets that is shared with the neighboring airbnb.

The space
The house is small and old (but updated). It's one of the original houses in Altoona and one of the oldest houses in the neighborhood. The kitchen and 3rd bedroom are additions that were added in 1915. We are not sure of exactly when the original structure was built. If you rent this space, imagine raising 7 children in it, the older woman who lives across the street did.

Only two of the bedrooms are completely private, you must walk thru the largest bedroom to get to the other two. The house is old, and this was the style for house layouts when it was built. I do have a photo of this in the description to help visualize it.

Location

Altoona, Pennsylvania, United States

The house is located across the street from a local 6-pack and pizza shop. They have live entertainment on the weekends if you feel like going out.

The neighborhood only has on-street parking and its a good place to stay if you like to sit on your porch and watch people walking around town. Its a friendly neiggborhood so it easy to strike up a conversation or two with the locals.

Its located:
2 blocks from green bean coffee
5 blocks to fefis convenient store
1 mile from downtown Altoona
3 miles from Penn State Altoona
2 miles to UPMC hospital
40 minutes to State College

Please make sure you don't mind a house in the city before booking.

We are a family of four that loves to travel. We enjoy experiencing new culture, appreciating history, meeting new people, and being open-minded. Our family lives on a farm in Pennsylvania. We have horses, chickens, cats, and dogs. We try to let our children experience as much as possible so that they can be well rounded. I like to use airbnb because it allows us to meet new families and individuals that live in the area.

During your stay
I will be available for whatever you need. I live about 20minutes away, but my maintenance man lives a few houses away.

I can meet and greet if you want, or our self check in is super easy. You will see the exterior photo of the house and have the lockbox code. You can check in at any hour.

Our overall rating is very important, especially since ratings below 4.5 can lead to airbnb suspension and we do the best we can to provide the most accurate description and try to undersell the house so that you are not disappointed. Please dont hesitate with any questions especially if our listing is missing any information that we didn't think about.
