Large bedroom on top floor with sit-in windows overlooking the village. Long, meandering bathroom has a clawfoot tub with separate shower. Brand new queen bed. Large, mostly organic breakfast included. Central AC, ceiling fan.

The space
This large space on the top floor sleeps two or three people. It comes with a large en-suite bathroom w/shower and separate claw-foot tub. It has sit-in windows overlooking the village. Very quiet, with only soft church bells occasionally to mark the time.

This enormous Second Empire home is full of nooks & crannies to explore. There are six bedrooms to choose from, each with a private full washroom. There is a large dining room, a parlour and an even larger "great room", with 12-foot pier mirrors and a baby grand piano, we use for receptions and recitals.

Where you’ll be

Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania, United States

Hollidaysburg is a small town about five miles from Altoona, PA, a once-bustling railroad town that's been in decline since long before American steel mills started to close.

Hollidaysburg has always been relatively prosperous. Many stately old homes built soon after the civil war are found on tree-lined Allegheny Street, and our home is among the nicest of them. But even the more modest areas of town are well-kept, quiet and safe. It's well worth exploring the town by foot or cycle.

The pedestrian-friendly downtown, called "The Diamond", has managed to survive and still has small neighborhood shops. There are several restaurants and three coffee shops on Allegheny Street, all within brief walking distance of our B&B.

This is a town where many people attend church. There are churches of virtually every Christian denomination, including two Catholic churches. The closest synagogue is in Altoona, and the closest Quaker meeting house is in State College.

During your stay

We have two kids of our own to look after, so we won't be in anyone's hair. We will serve guests a very nice breakfast, better than you'll find anywhere else in the area. We use fresh ground Quartermaine coffee, turkey bacon, fresh fruit and organic free range eggs.
