Owner's Response: Hi David: Thank you for the exceptional review! I always enjoy having guests stay at my property and having had the opportunity to chat with you. Also, it's nice to hear that because the house is "off the beaten path", but close to the stadium and downtown State College, you were able to enjoy the festivities and then retire to a quiet rural setting.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The house is comfortable and neat. Location for a Penn State football game could not have been better. Even though the property is in the country, access to town was quite easy. Would definitely stay again. Valerie, the host, is very helpful and friendly. All in all a great place to stay!

Very pleasant stay - although too short!!

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our very short stay!! Would have liked to explore the countryside more. Very clean and comfortable home, with gracious and very responsive host.

When reserving, watch for VRBO/Home Away charging extra for what appears to be insurance beyond the security deposit. May be an anomaly, or something new, but i had not been charged this before that i am aware of. Seemed like a duplication of the security deposit process.

Wonderful stay in quiet location

  • 5 of 5

The home was just as lovely as the description and photos. Valerie was a very accommodating host and we had everything we needed for a short weekend stay. Extremely clean, quiet and cozy. The short drive to the Penn State campus was easy to navigate and my family had a wonderful stay overall.

Beautiful and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this property for a PSU football game. Valerie was a wonderful hostess! The home is clean and welcoming. Valerie was kind enough to provide coffee, tea, and bagels for the morning! The property sits on 3 acres and has beautiful views of local mountains and wildlife. We will definitely book this home again!

Owner's Response: It was definitely a pleasure to host these lovely guests and that they enjoyed the comforts of the house and, of course, the stunning view. While I can't guarantee the wildlife, it's around us at all times. The property is available year round and I would be delighted to meet them again. thank you for being such wonderful guests.

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this property. It was spacious, comfortable, and spotless! It had everything we needed. It was surrounded by nature, and had a nice view of the mountains- we even had hummingbirds right outside the window each morning. It was great to stay in a quiet place after spending time on the busy campus. Valerie was super thoughtful- she even gave us cucumbers and tomatoes from her garden!

Owner's Response: It was certainly a pleasure having Carlota and her husband stay here as my guests! They were a delight to meet and as an added bonus, her husband took a video of the hummingbirds which they have offered to send to me :-). While I can't always guarantee hummingbirds, cucumbers and tomatoes, (since they are seasonal), I do try to make my house a quiet, clean, and pleasant place to stay. Thank you for staying at my property. Valerie Martin
