This home was great - it was wonderful to have so much space. This was a football game weekend highlighted by a reunion of a few friends who hadn't seen each other in 22 years! It was really nice to come back from a cold game to a warm fire, dinner and lots and lot of chatting! Details: very well organized check in, very comfortable beds, nice kitchen, easy check out, very comfortable space for visiting. It is about 20 minutes from campus but we did not find this to be a problem.

We stayed here homecoming weekend and found the accommodations to be very clean and comfortable. We wished that the third bedroom had a larger bed in it, but we were pleasantly surprised to find that the den had a sliding glass door that could separate it from the rest of the living space, essentially acting as a comfortable fourth bedroom. The surrounding neighborhood was very nice, and it was a short walk to Atherton St., where you could pick up a number of bus lines. We enjoyed our stay very much.

The house was great - nice and peaceful but close enough to reach the action of the football game quickly! Beautiful setting.
October 16, 2013
Our group had a great time at this house. It is located a short walk to town and Beaver Stadium is a quick drive away. The Owners, Brian/Jeanne, were a pleasure to deal with. Could not have asked for a better experience.
September 30, 2013
This house was clean, comfortable and spacious for all guests. As promised, the owner provided all kitchen supplies and more than enough linens, blankets and towels. The location was perfect for us, as we could easily walk into town. My family and I are already planning our next stay at this house!

We went up to PSU for our first football game and we had a GREAT time. The weather was tough (rain), but this house really made up for it. Its a 4 bedroom and 4 bathroom house. I know its not listed that way. Which really fit us well. There was plenty of space for all the families and the many kids who came over from campus. Its a real quick ride to the campus and stadium - plus the house is very clean and well maintained. The owner was very easy to deal with and we don't have a single complaint. We would stay here again.

We rented this house with 2 other couples and and 4 more friends and it was great. House was impeccably clean and owner was there to show us everything. He was willing to let us take a Weber grill to tailgate but we did not need it. We enjoyed the big back yard in the afternoon and evening. Kitchen and family room very open. We would definite recommend. Only down side is that 2 of the beds were full size.
July 15, 2013
The house was appropriate for what me and my friends were looking for. Good for a group of guys that just need a place to rest for a few hours. The grill was great, very nice back yard, comfortable beds, and very clean. The price was very reasonable as well. In terms of constructive critisism I would say that the house was very basic. I would throw some pictures up on the wall or maybe mirrors in the bedrooms so there is more than just the one in the bathroom. I understand it is a rental property, but just a few small touches could go a long way. I would definitly rent again for a guys trip.

This house was perfect for our weekend. My brother got married in State College. We had 7 adults and one baby staying for Memorial Day weekend. It was spacious, we felt like it was clean, and it overall met our needs and allowed us all to enjoy time together. It was a short walk to a playground and driving everywhere was easy.
April 30, 2013
Although we did not end up going this route for the wedding we attended, the communication with the owner was great. The promptly response to all questions and I am sure if we need to use their services in the future I would not hesitate.

We are so happy that we found this home. My husband, daughter and I came to Penn State for Acacia's Parents' Weekend. It was so nice to stay in a home with room to stretch out. Rick and Andrea made us feel very welcome in their beautiful home. It is very comfortable and roomy. We hope to be able to rent it again when we visit our son.

Owners were easy to work with and accommodating. The home is in a quiet residential area and very close to State College and to local restaurants or shops. Good space for visiting upstairs and for kids to play downstairs. Televisions in the living room and bedrooms. Very clean and comfortable. Comfortable beds. We visited Penn's Cave and also First Night and enjoyed walking around the college campus. We brought in dinners from Wegmans and local restaurants. We had a good time and the house worked well for us.

This house was so much more than we expected. 4 bedrooms. Large basement for aero beds. Great or that graduation weekend. Already planning on a football game for this fall.

My PSU roommate connected me with Rick. We got lucky. This was so comfortable and easy to reserve. Awesome location to new stores, bars, and of course Penn State. My son spent a night with us to get away which made Mom happy. I was able to do some work since the house has a strong wireless cabability. Awesome 52'TV with Netflix provide a relaxing area to reconnect. Everything was so clean and newly renovated. Looking forward to our next extended stay so we can take advantage of these wonderful accommodations.

We enjoyed our third visit to this beautiful home! It was another great stay--the home is well appointed, very clean and has everything we needed for a weekend in State College. The home is close to all the great stores, minutes from downtown and a short drive to Beaver Stadium. Thanks for another great stay!

Great house that we shared with other alum and current parents of PSU students. The owner Rick was a pleasure to work with and the house was everything as promised. We stayed for the Ohio State weekend this year. The only thing missing was a Penn State win. My family and friends will be back for years to come!

We loved this house. We shared a wonderful weekend with our PSU family, staying in this house made it that much better. It is decorated beautiful, and absolutely immaculately clean and neat. It was everything we needed and wanted. The bedrooms were huge, beautiful, and perfect for all of us, as were the bathrooms We were four couples with our sons. The basement was just right for our PSU Alum sons. The kitchen had everything we needed. We were all so comfortable and had a great time. I highly recommend this great house to everyone.
September 11, 2012
Very cute and warm home. Lots of space with 4 bedrooms and 2 living rooms. Backs up to woods and a little stream in a quiet neighborhood. Just a few minutes from Wegmans and all North Atherton shopping. Highly recommended!

We rented this home for summer graduation and had family coming in from all over the country. It was clean, spacious, close to campus and restaurants and just the perfect fit for a large family with three little ones. With four large bedrooms, a nursery with two cribs and a pull out couch downstairs--there was ample room for everyone! There was plenty of clean towels and linens and a very well-stocked kitchen. The kids loved the community pool that was just across the street and a good time was had by all. The owners were extremely flexible with the check-in/check-out times and let us know that they were close by if we needed anything. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone seeking a nice relaxing stay in a beautiful home with all the amenities of a hotel, but far more charm.
May 9, 2012
We stayed here for graduation weekend. We needed a place for our very large family, including some small kids. This was perfect! It was clean and quiet with a peaceful back deck. The owner was very helpful with getting us checked in, making sure we had everything we needed. It was the perfect location for us, because we were able to avoid the downtown area, and could quickly get to the stadium area with easy access to 99. We had an amazing weekend!
November 1, 2011
Our party spent a recent weekend at this house and we couldn't have been happier! Great location close to PSU; ample space in the home; comfortable beds and a huge newly renovated shower... We utilized the gas grill on the deck for a little pre-game party! We will be renting this again.
October 23, 2011
My husband and I along with 3 other couples stayed for 2 football weekends and really enjoyed ourselves. This house is very clean, nicely appointed and and fully equipped. Even the basement is awesome! We really appreciated being able to come back after a full day of tailgaiting, and relax, play cards, and watch TV together. So much more enjoyable than a hotel! Richard was very attentive to our needs as well. We're looking forward to coming back next year!
September 5, 2011
Our stay was excellent. There were 4 couples sharing the house and we all agreed it was a great setup. The house was very nicely kept and it was only a short cab ride downtown. We all agreed we'd do it again next year if possible. Thanks to Rick and Andrea for making us feel very welcome in their home. Tailgating supplies are provided if needed including grill, chairs and coolers. All you have to do is buy the food!

We were a group of 10 looking for a place to stay that was close to the Lodge at Tussey Mountain. This was perfect! We were all close, but not on top of each other. Loved sitting out on the deck and cooking big meals in the kitchen. The proximity to everything was great, too. The only criticism I heard is that the downstairs shower got a little cold after a few people used it, although the upstairs shower seemed to stay warm. There also wasn't much room to hang our clothes - the closets were full of the homeowner's belongings, which made a couple people in the group feel a bit awkward. All in all, though, it was a great weekend and very affordable!
July 30, 2011
We (party of 7) visited State College for 8 days and had such a great time staying in Rick's home! The clean, comfortable home provided space for kids and parents to spread out and live peacefully during an extended visit to Penn State. The community pool with fun waterslides was only 2 blocks away and the grocery store/shopping/movie theatre were less than 1 mile away. Visiting Penn State is always a special trip for us but this made it even better! Thanks Rick!

My family lives all over the country. We came into State College for a few days to gather for a wedding. Rick's home was the perfect solution for getting us all together in a place where we could share meals, morning coffee and a game of cards. It was spacious and comfortable for my adult children and their small kids. Rick was reliable and responsive to my emails and inquiries. I highly recommend this home for a family weekend.
May 31, 2011
We had a wonderful stay in State College over Memorial Day weekend. The house was perfect for 2 families with lots of kids. The local pool was tremendous for the kids to pass time and only a few hundred yards away. The house was clean, comfortable and well taken care of. The owner was very helpful with us getting situated and responding to questions we had. I wouldn't hesitate to rent here again and would highly recommend.

This beautiful home accommodated our family of seven and our two out of town guests for our sons recent Penn State graduation . Because of its close proximity to PSU, major grocery stores and restaurants, it was the ideal location for us, and exactly what we were looking for. The amenities included a spacious kitchen, a beautiful living room, three bathrooms, cable television and a/c in all the rooms and even lovely deck. The downstairs area of the home was equally as beautiful and very spacious. The Owner's were extremely friendly and a pleasure to do business with. Would highly recommend this property and would definitely rent from these folks again. A ++

This is very well kept and clean home with nice amenities. Sleeps 10 and very close to campus and shopping. We have a large family and this home was a very good choice vs. staying at a hotel. We were all together in the spacious family room and yet the home had plenty of privacy for all 4 families. It is economical, comfortable and convienent. The owners keep it immaculate.

We could not have asked for a better weekend in State College. The weather was gorgeous, PSU won the game & the accommodations were great! Our family of 4 stayed with another 2 families and we had everything we needed! The house was comfortable to accommodate all 11 of us (5 kids!). They thought of everything when opening up their home to us! Their house felt like ours & we look forward to staying there again!

Our family attended our daughter’s wedding at Tussey Mountain Lodge in State College and needed a place to stay for nine nights. With ten of us (seven adults and three grandchildren under the age of three) we needed a home to stay in for the little ones. The spacious home worked wonderfully. The Lies even let us host a bridal shower and barbecue for over 40 people while we were there. I would recommend this property and it gracious owners to anyone who requires a home base in State College.
September 13, 2010
The house is beautiful--very nice and more than enough room for our group of seven (great deck, too). Rick was friendly and helpful throughout--thanks. Skip the hotel and stay here instead, especially if you have a larger group.
September 10, 2010
Very clean, remodeled, and friendly hosts. Would strongly recommend this house for rental and we will definitely be returning next year.

My girlfriends rented this house for my betchelorette ... bachelorette party and it was much nicer than staying at a hotel! It was close enough to downtown for us to shop and bar hop - also a cheap fast taxi ride back when we drank too much! Plenty of rooms to accommodate our group along with a large enough area to do our P90X workout

My family attended my nephew's wedding in State College and needed a place to stay for 4 nights. I am a travel agent and checked out many options for this stay. We were fortunate to find the Lie's beautiful home, it worked perfectly for us. We had room for our family and their spouses as well as my brother's family. Everyone had privacy, but we also had the the lovely home to spread out in. We found every accessory needed to entertain the rest of the family who were in hotels in the area. The functional large kitchen, the lovely deck and grill out back, the big screen tv, location (many things to do nearby), and of course, the welcome hospitality provided by the owners....it was a perfect experience. I would recommend this property and these owner hosts to anyone who needs a home base in State College! PS Pennsylvania is a beautiful place!

Advertised as 4BR 2.5 bath, one bedroom had an air mattress, another bedroom was downstairs amongst a basement that was being remodeled, there was only 1.5 bath as other was being remodeled. Owner did not even offer refund. Otherwise, the house was very comfortable.
