NEWLY REMODELED IN SPRING 2021! The Peaceful Park Forest Cottage is a small stylish home (2 bed, 1 bath) located in the family friendly Park Forest neighborhood. The cottage is perfect for couples or small families. The house is close to restaurants and stores on N. Atherton, 10 minutes from PSU and downtown State College. Our house is NOT a party house and is a NO SMOKING/NO VAPING PROPERTY. If you are under 21 and do not have at least one Airbnb 5 star review, we will not rent to you.

The space
Come stay in The Peaceful Park Forest Cottage while you explore the State College area! Our cottage is only minutes from sports and cultural events on campus, yet is also close to hiking and biking adventures in Rothrock State Forest and events at Tussey Mountain.

The cottage is located in a quiet family friendly neighborhood 10 minutes from downtown State College with quick access to the highway. State College has a great local arts and food scene and there is always something going on! With the Children's Garden at the Arboretum at Penn State, The Discovery Space science museum, and tons of parks and playgrounds, State College is a great place to explore with kids and our family friendly cottage is a great place to stay!

The cottage has custom tile work on the floors and in the bathroom, live edge woodwork, stylish fun decor (check out the eco-friendly FLOR carpet tiles and the Society 6 artwork supporting independent artists!), and a Smart TV to stream your favorite shows on NetFlix and Disney+. We use scent-free cleaning products in the cottage. The house is about 1,000 square feet, so while it has plenty of room for 4 people and is fully stocked with everything you should need for a fantastic stay, please note that it is a compact layout. The house sleeps four people in one queen bed and two twins - a great layout for families or business travelers. There is room for a portable crib in one of the bedrooms. The bathroom is small, yet has a custom tile surround with kid friendly full bath and shower with a safety grab bar. The three beds are the only sleeping arrangements in the house, so groups of more than three people who are looking for individual beds, perhaps with one person sleeping on a sofa, should not book this cottage.

The kitchen has all of the basic amenities you need to feel right at home. There is a traditional drip coffee pot, a stove top moka pot, and a cold brew maker, so you can customize your morning drink! We provide a nice selection of teas and organic coffee. Appliances include a large stainless steel fridge, microwave, full stove/oven, and cooking supplies. The kitchen has a back door which opens directly onto a wood deck with outdoor dining furniture in a private backyard.

The cottage has plenty of games, puzzles, and books for both children and adults. There is a booster seat and portable crib for guest use (please bring your own crib sheets). There is a small neighborhood park directly across the street and several larger parks located close by. The Park Forest Pool is only minutes away and provides day passes for non-members.
The house is located entirely on one floor, including the washer and dryer and the back deck.

The cottage is in a quiet neighborhood with close neighbors, about a ten minute drive from downtown State College and Penn State campus. Please take note of this - WE ARE NOT LOCATED IN DOWNTOWN STATE COLLEGE.
Parking is available for one car in the driveway and there is free parking on the street directly in front of the house. Please note the garage is NOT for guest use.

We are unable to host business events at this location.
We have a strict NO PET policy.

Where you’ll be

State College, Pennsylvania, United States

The Park Forest neighborhood is a quiet residential family friendly neighborhood. There are sidewalks for walking and biking, several small parks with playgrounds tucked among the houses, and is only 5 minutes from large Circleville Park. It is located about 10 minutes from downtown State College, so this neighborhood is away from the hustle and bustle of student life downtown.

We live in an old farmhouse in the suburbs and enjoy the outdoors, farmer's markets, and local coffee. Liam works as a carpenter, revitalizing old homes by upcycling found materials while adding modern touches. By State College standards, we are locals (been here over 15 years) and love the accessibility for outdoor adventures coupled with the amenities that a university town offers. We are proud to provide homes for travelers that we ourselves would enjoy staying in.
