The SpaceThis historic home, with fenced yard and garden is a short walk to charming Boalsburg village, with lively restaurants and assorted shops. Upstairs is the master BR (King) and guest room (2 twins), as well as a dressing room attached to the MBR, that can fit a full size air mattress, and a sunny, comfortable corner office, a perfect spot to enjoy a quiet read. In the living room is a large, comfortable sectional sofa perfect for sleeping one adult or two children (or one of each!). We have a full-size air mattress that easily fits here. We have a dining room that seats eight, a large, sunny, fully-equipped kitchen, a cozy sitting room, and a covered side porch with a full size gas grill.
We are four miles from the Penn State campus, and only 2 miles from Hills Plaza South, with free parking and the CATA shuttle to Beaver Stadium on game days. Guest AccessVisitors have access to the whole house, including fenced yard, except for one out-of-the-way storage room. We have plenty of parking: three cars in the rear, and two in front of the house. Interaction with GuestsWe will be staying nearby, and will gladly help make sure that all goes well during your stay. The NeighborhoodJust a few houses away is Blue Spring Park, with basketball courts and a children's playground. Of historic interest is the Pennsylvania Military Museum, the Christopher Columbus Chapel and Boal Mansion Museum, as well as the Nittany Theatre at the Barn. The 'Diamond' at the center of the village is a five-minute walk. There you will find Duffy's Tavern (dating to the 1850s), as well as numerous small, quaint shops. Getting AroundThe CATA bus system serves Boalsburg, with routes into the State College area, however please note that they only run four times daily. There is an excellent, safe bike path that runs from Boalsburg into State College and the Penn State campus.
