I was born and raised right here in Cresson, PA. I like to meet new people and build new friendships. My home is your home while you are on vacation.
We are nestled between Pittsburgh and State College in the Laurel Highlands. This is a great place for 'train buffs'. Blue Knob is very close for winter skiing. In the summer, enjoy Prince Gallitzin State Park.
We offer short-term (hotel) living without the commercialism. We are private and quiet. Come for the weekend, week, or longer. You will love our private facility with no noise.
We just loved staying here. Everything is so warm and welcoming and spotless! Mary couldn't have been any nicer and is so so accommodating. Thanks so much! We look forward to staying here again
Coming back to visit family in south-central PA has been made much easier after our experience with Mary. I was only about a 15 minute drive from my brother's and my mother's houses. The apartment suited every need we had. The area within Cresson was quiet and peaceful. Mary and Rick could not have been more gracious hosts. We will definitely choose to stay with them again.
Mary and Rick were great hosts. The apartment was very spacious, clean and in a great location. I was visiting my daughter at St Francis and it was less than a ten minute drive to campus. Mary even had a sewing machine I borrowed to make some curtains for my daughter! The kitchen had everything I needed to make some great meals and there were even fresh eggs to buy a few doors down from Mary's! I will definitely stay here again. Thanks Mary and Rick for a great visit.

Hosts were very welcoming and rental was very clean. Would come back
The bed is comfortable and the owners are wonderful, welcoming and personable. You have your own little apartment away from home.
Very welcoming; clean & tidy. All needs catered for. We love Cresson; it's a great railroad town. Would definately stay here again & hope we can return on future holidays to the USA.
We were so delighted with our stay in this cheerful, spacious and clean house. Everything worked and was well cared for; there were lots of charming little details. Mary and Rick were such welcoming, friendly & accommodating hosts. It was a nice neighborhood for taking walks. We look forward to returning.
