  • We (two adults and our 9-month-old) stayed here through June 2013 and had a wonderful experience. This is a wonderfully kept house on a beautiful street. We would thoroughly recommend staying here to anyone considering a visit to State College.

  • We had a great stay at the house. It was comfy and charming. And the host was very responsive in answering our questions and solving any minor issues we had. The location was perfect too.
