This home was perfect! From my 80yr old mother to my 4yr old son, this home met everyone's needs. Everything was just right including, the comfortable beds, reclining chairs, spacious kitchen and beautiful view. I must also mention that everything was very clean, which is important to me. I especially liked the friendly notes left around the house from the homeowner and family. This was not just a house; it was a home - warm and peaceful as if you were in your own. Awesome experience!

50th Anniversary Family Celebration

Stayed here with my college buddies two years ago and realized this was the perfect home to rent to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary with our children and grand-children, nine in total. My wife and I met at Penn State and wanted to bring the family back to where it all began. The house was fantastic in every way, everything we needed was provided. Both indoor and outdoor space more than met our needs. Great home, beautiful condition, great views, and just minutes from down town.

Toni Irvin

Owner's reply:

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. It was great to meet your beautiful family and I'm happy that our home worked well for your reunion. 50 years of marriage is definitely worth celebrating! We would love to have you stay here again anytime! Toni

It was wonderful.

From the first time we looked at the house to rent we knew that this was going to be the perfect place. We rented so that our family could all stay together our sons graduation. Toni was wonderful to work with. The house is immaculate. It has a home feeling. Our family - most of them their first trip to State College - was so impressed with everything. They could not believe their eyes. I would rent this house again in a heartbeat. Thank you Toni and your family for making our sons graduation so memorable.

Owner's reply:

Great Visit To State College

Four grads returned to where we met 51 years ago and stayed in this wonderful home. The house, just 10 minutes from town is in beautiful, peaceful farm country. The owner left us with a fully equipped home in immaculate condition that was perfect in every way.

Owner's reply:

Great house perfect for our get together on a PSU footballl weekend. The house was perfectly clean, spacious, very comfortable. The only thing that could have been better would have been Penn State beating Alabama. Highly recommend!

Heaven at Penn State!

We can't thank Toni and her family enough for the most amazing weekend! She was so accomodating, the house was spotless and all the extras were tremendous for our group with small children. We didn't even want to leave to go to the game....but we did. Thanks Toni - we'll be in touch next year!



Great Stay

Huge home with plenty of beds. Toni was great to deal with.
