This newly remodeled and furnished 2200 square foot home is in downtown State College. Take the bus around town or walk downtown for dinner. Just 6 blocks to PSU campus. 3 Bedrooms + Beds in Finished Basement, 2.5 baths. Located on Prospect Ave just off Allen St in a quiet neighborhood, but very close to the downtown activities. Easy and relaxing walk to College and Beaver Ave.

BR#2: Full

BR#3: Two Twins with 22' TV and built in DVD player

BR#4: Finished Basement, 1 Queen, 1 Twin, 1 twin pullout couch, and plenty of space for additional portable beds as needed. Includes 50' TV

TV Room: Full size couch with 39' TV

We live in the State College area and use this home for visiting family/friends, and out of town business clients. Therefore,the home is lightly furnished. Kitchen utensils, plates, coffee pot and Kuerig (K cups not included), pots/pans etc are provided. We recommend you supply your sheets, bedding, towels, etc. We will supply freshly washed linens and bedding for an additional $100 dry cleaning fee per visit. Just let us know at the time of booking if you'd like us to include the bedding package. If bedding is provided, fresh and folded bedding will be placed on each bed for you to make up upon your arrival.

Thank you for your interest. You'll be very pleased with the property. The location is excellent. This is one of two houses available in all of the downtown area.

Although this home is located 5 short blocks from Beaver Avenue, it is in a relatively quiet family neighborhood. Excessive noise will disturb the neighbors and will likely result in a noise violation. If you expect your group to be rowdy, please consider other options.

Please note: Except for the below listed special events, we do not accept reservations more than 12 months in advance.

Hide Details

My wife Susan and I met at PSU as undergraduates in 1997 and after graduation in 1999, decided to stay in the area. After 8 years of working as a Mechanical Design Engineer, I returned to PSU and graduated with my MBA in 2009. My wife Susan has a background in Hotel Management (graduated PSU in Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Management 2000), a passion for real estate with an eye for interior design. She manages multiple rental properties around Central Pa and coordinates all travel arrangements for two local companies. We currently live in the State College area with 2 Children, Alex (9) and Ashley (7).

Susan Stout purchased this house in 2010

We purchased this home from an estate auction with the intent of renovating and reselling. During the renovation, my wife fell in love with the house's charm and location.

The downtown location is ideal for visiting friends and family and business clients, so we use these homes for personal and business use; however, we also make them available to others who are visiting the State College area and would appreciate the nostalgia of the property and the downtown location.

Thank you for your interest. You'll be very pleased with this property. It was recently remodeled. The downtown location is excellent. Nothing else I've seen listed can compare.

We had a wonderful stay in this home. The owner describes the house well and it was beautifully maintained. I was able to reach the owner whenever needed and she was very helpful. We enjoyed the proximity to downtown and the ease of access of all the great places to go in Happy Valley.

wonderful weekend back to my alumni with my kids

  • 4 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 04/01/2014
  • Date of Stay: Dec 2013
My husband and I are both alumni of PSU but have never taken our kids to visit. It was my family (2 adults and 2 kids) with another family (2 adults and 3 kids) and there was plenty of room. Definite plus to have a basement for the kiddos (they even had some toys for them to play with). We also went to Tussey mountain to go tubing and it was so close (less than 10 minute drive). The location is KEY!!!! We were able to walk to downtown in 5-10 minutes. The house was wonderfully decorated and kitchen very modern. Everything you needed for the kitchen was supplied. The outdoor grill is very nice also. We had such a great weekend and hope to be back soon.

only thing I would change is the beds upstairs. They were slightly uncomfortable to sleep in.

Perfect Home to Enjoy!!

We traveled to State College as our daughter was starting her freshman year at Penn State. We wanted a place that would feel like a home and provide a peaceful setting for the week. I can't say enough positive things about the property. It was beautifully done, with every detail thought through and provided. Susan, the owner, was very responsive and helpful. It is a true find for anyone staying at State College. We highly recommend it!!
