Overview

About the property

A quiet, comfortable country retreat, nestled between two state parks. Located near the Village of McAlevy’s Fort in Huntingdon County, and right next door to the Fern Hill Studebaker Farm, the property borders Standing Stone creek, a great fishing spot, and is 15 miles from State College, about 4 miles from Greenwood Furnace State Park and Whipples Dam State Park. The Creek House sleeps 8-9 comfortably (7 adults, 2 children in upper bunk beds), has a recently updated kitchen, large living room, 2 recently updated bathrooms and covered back porch. A picnic pavilion, fire ring and horseshoe pits near the gently sloping trail to the creek give plenty of options for outdoor fun!

Whether you are coming to the area for a Penn State football weekend, gathering friends for a fishing trip or just hoping for a quiet spot to relax and enjoy, The Creek House will provide just what you are looking for!

We are also right next door to the Fern Hill Studebaker Farm and only 2 miles from the Fern Hill Wedding venue, so if you are planning a wedding or other event, The Creek House is a great place for your guests to stay and be close to the action!

Please do remember - you are coming to the country - bring your sunscreen and bug spray - there are always a few critters around! :-)

Three Bedrooms:

1) master with in-suite bathroom,

2) room with 1 twin bed and 1 set twin bunk beds

3) room with twin over full bunk bed

Bathrooms: 2 full

Beds: 1Q, 1 full with twin bunk over, 1 twin, 1 set of twin bunk beds, 1 full futon in living room

Please note: we do not allow smoking in the house or on the porches and no pets are allowed; we do have a couple of honeybee hives - in an out of the way corner - you probably will never know they are there and if it's the right time of year, we may be able to give you a small jar of our honey! But if someone in your group is severely allergic to bees, this may not be best choice for you.

About Dee and Gary Bagshaw

We purchased The Creek House in 2014 with the intent to enjoy some quiet country weekends and to have a place for family and friends to stay on football weekends or to enjoy some great fishing and hunting in the area. We wanted to have a place to make some cheese, keep a couple of honeybee hives and enjoy a campfire with friends & family. We are ready to share this quiet little spot and hope you will find a reason to come and stay!

My husband grew up in the Village of McAlevy's Fort, just down the road and I've lived in the area for over 30 years. We love the "University town" of State College, offering lots to do, but always enjoy the quiet of the surrounding valleys. We hope you will enjoy your stay if you choose to come to The Creek House!

Why Dee and Gary Bagshaw chose Petersburg

When we first saw this property, we knew it could be a fun place for family & friends. The creek is wonderful and its a quiet, easy to get to spot close to our home in State College. Our kids and their friends enjoy spending time here.

Wonderful property, great for families!

  • 5 of 5

Great property, good location for Raystown Lake, Lincoln Cavern, State College, numerous state parks, etc. Kids had a great time playing games in the yard, sitting around fire, and being down in the creek. Will definitely look into coming back! Thank you!

Nice, clean getaway....wish the weather was better for our trip!

  • 4 of 5

We arrived to find everything clean, put away, and ready for our stay. Everything was great! The weather was terrible so we didn't get to enjoy the great outdoor space! We would have loved to relax by the firepit or sit on the spacious back deck! A great place to stay, only 25 minutes to Penn State Football Stadium! Please note, if you plan to use the futon in the living room, there are plenty of windows, with little or no blinds, so you will awake with the sunshine.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the Creek House - we strive to make our guests comfortable. We wish we had a 'good weather button' - we'd definitely put it to good use :-) We will sure consider putting blinds up - we just like the openness to the outdoors. Thanks for pointing out the early morning light :-) Hope you and your friends will come again when you come for a Penn State football game. All the best, Dee & Gary

Football Weekend

Everything was provided that would be needed for a great football weekend. We hope to return to the Creek House when the weather allows us to take advantage of the fire pit and creek in the wonderful backyard.

If you are back in 'Happy Valley', please consider staying with us again! Dee & Gary
