|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
We are currently looking for a long term tenant beginning in mid August. Most likely, we will not be renting for weekly rentals beyond that time, so this home will not be available for football weekly rentals this year.
In the mean time, the Borough of State College requires a minimum rental of 7 nights. Please do not ask for a shorter rental period as we cannot offer shorter rentals under the current borough zoning regulations.
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#1: Queen with 35' TV
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 dry cleaned linens and bedding for an additional $125 dry cleaning fee per visit. Just let us know at the time of booking if you'd like us to include the bedding. 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.
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.
1. Except for the below listed special events, we do not accept reservations more than 12 months in advance.
2. No more than 3 unrelated guests are permitted as required by borough ordinances.
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 (11) and Ashley (9).
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.

From the moment I booked this home for family and friends to attend the Blue and White game, Craig and Susan were very responsive and willing to answer any questions I had. The house was just as advertised with plenty of space for 10 people to sleep comfortably. There was plenty of parking for the 10 people who came for the weekend. When we arrived, the home was very clean and had all the amenities. We have stayed at properties before where there were only 1 or 2 pans to cook with but this home was well stocked with plenty of silverware, plates, and pans.
We will definitely be staying at this property again as long as it is available. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay at a beautiful home close to downtown!
Thanks again Craig and Susan!
This was a great house. We were a group of 12 alumni that came back for a weekend, and it really was perfect. There were great amenities, and the location was perfect. About a 5-10 minute walk to downtown, and 10-15 to get up to campus. The owners were very responsive and helpful too! I would highly recommend this house to any groups coming to visit State College!
Our family stayed at this property to attend a wedding in town. The house was perfect for our needs with multiple bedrooms and ample parking. The house was spotless and very well maintained. Being within walking distance to downtown shops and restaurants was great. Owner was also very responsive to questions and requests. We highly recommend and hope to visit again in the future.
We had a great time staying in this house for a summer weekend. Proximity to restaurants, shops and campus can't be beat. We would love to come again!
We came with several friends for a PSU reunion over the summer and enjoyed our stay. The back deck was great and the yard is spacious. We liked that there are bedrooms upstairs and bedrooms downstairs that allowed us to spread out. We'd definitely stay here again. It was easy to walk downtown to all of our old favorites.
My friends and I were so impressed with this house - everything was nice and clean when we arrived and the linens we ordered were all laid out on the beds. The location is amazing, just 4 or so blocks to College Ave. via Allen St. We had a group or 9 of us and there was certainly enough space for all of us to fit comfortably. Thank you for a wonderful time and next year we're hoping to have another reunion, but this time for a warm weather football game!
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.
