The SpaceThis three story townhouse is spacious, clean, and well enjoyed. It's close to campus (a 10 minute drive/bus ride or 30 minute walk), but far enough from all the hustle to feel quiet and secluded. It's a small row of townhouses that are owned (not rented), which makes for a peaceful and respectful little community.
Your private room is clean, naturally cool, welcoming, and on the lower-ground floor (where you will have the spacious floor to yourself with a cozy seating area and coffee table). You'll have fresh linens on a Full/Double sized bed, towels, shampoo, body wash, and a private coffee maker and tea. Guest AccessGuests will have access to the entire first floor (living room, dining room, back porch, and kitchen), their private level, and all the bathrooms (the half-bath exclusively for guests).
The shared spaces are also the kitchen, living room and dining rooms, as well as the one full bath upstairs, where the shower is located. Interaction with GuestsThe townhouse is occupied by two doctoral students at Penn State. We're polite, hospitable, and generous with our guests. We'll both be present during your stay but out of your way, unless you'd prefer otherwise. We'll keep a respectful distance that reflects your preference-but are also happy to socialize and get to know you!
During the week we're generally away from the house from morning until the evenings, but we're fairly homebound on the weekends. Depending on when you stay, we'll feel more/less visible. The NeighborhoodWe're close enough to campus to walk to school daily, but far enough away to feel removed from it all. We're a 2 minute drive from a major grocery store, liquor store, bowling alley, and 10 minutes from downtown state college.
We're nestled right along state college's winding network of bike/walking paths that offer beautiful scenery and peaceful walks. Getting AroundParking here is free, but there is also a fairly decent bus system with stops nearby the townhouse. Getting here from the airport or the megabus stop might require a cab ride (about 10-12 dollars from the airport, 5-7 from the bus stop), but if either of us are available we'd be happy to give you a lift! Other Things to NoteThe bed is a pillow-top mattress and sits relatively low to the ground on a wooden frame. Its a size Full so sleeps two people in a cozy way. There is additional room in the lower-ground floor for an additional guest, your own air mattress should be provided.
