About this listing
Fully furnished and appointed apartment will be your home away from home. The large master bedroom has a king bed and a sunny walkout patio overlooking Mount Nittany. The custom kitchen has new, full-sized appliances.
Spend your football, ArtsFest, or other weekend in your private getaway in quiet Centre Hills Village in this newly renovated walk-out basement apartment.
Order pizza, pasta, calzones, or subs from The Cove (half a mile away at the bottom of the hill -- they deliver!) and spend Friday night in on the king bed in the large bedroom with a movie or TV show on the large flatscreen TV.
Saturday morning, watch the sun rise over Mount Nittany as you sip your fresh-brewed coffee outside at your own patio table. If the morning is chilly, you can take in the same view through the large windows in the walk-out. Later, over breakfast, look out over the Mitchell Farm valley and Lemont and you might see the local fox and her kit against the white snow. Go for a stroll in neighboring Thompson Woods Preserve on the miles of walking trails.
On your way to the game, you might stop at Spring Creek Presbyterian Cemetery (less than 2 blocks away) to pay your respects to Joe Pa, or head straight to the Stadium. If you want to avoid the traffic you can walk through the scenic Thomson Woods Preserve and down Walnut Spring Lane to the South Atherton Shuttle on University and Easterly (just over a mile from your door). Whether walking, busing, or driving, your total trip is less than 2.5 miles.
After the festivities, return to your private entrance and enjoy preparing a late snack in the brand-new custom kitchen. Savor a Nittany Lions victory soaking in the tub in the large bathroom while you listen to the post-game show on the radio.
Sunday morning enjoy your breakfast at the kitchen bar before packing up and jumping onto 322, a quarter mile from the bottom of Squirrel Ave., for your return home.

Interaction with Guests
The apartment is autonomous and private. We are happy to interact with you as much or as little as you desire. We would love to greet you upon your arrival and show you around. Or, if you prefer that we leave the key for you in a lockbox so you can show yourself around, we completely understand. Just let us know if you have a preference.
The neighborhood is quiet with little traffic. The neighbors are wonderful and friendly. In nice weather, many families go for an evening stroll along our quiet street after dinner.
Other Things to Note
In snowy weather, our gently sloping backyard is perfect for sledding. There is also a much larger and steeper sledding hill at the public park at the end of the street. We have a couple of small sleds you are welcome to borrow. Just ask!
Please no pets and no smoking inside. The carpet is new and light in color, so we'd appreciate it if you take off your outside shoes when you go inside.
