“A Wonderful House & Home Owner”

Reviewed 13 Sep 2016

I stayed at Lisa's house for a long weekend with 11 of my friends. Lisa was very friendly and accommodating- she had almost everything we needed so we could pack light. Lisa immediately answered all questions in-person or on the phone....she was helpful and informative. Her house was very nice and has everything you need for a weekend away. Her house is only about 15 minutes from downtown State College. We had a pleasant experience and would definitely rent here again :)

“Fantastic Home for PSU Weekend”

Reviewed 3 Nov 2015

This house was fantastic. Our group stayed here for the PSU Illinois game weekend. Fantastic deck/pro grill for entertaining. The owner was a delight to work with and she even brought us a smoked chicken during our stay. Everything we needed and more.

“Great Home!”

My family rented this home for a birthday celebration for a Penn State Alumni. The home is great, and is stocked with everything you could possibly need! The owner Lisa even supplied paper products just in case we didn't want to do dishes! The house comfortably slept 9 adults with the use of the air mattresses that are provided. The back deck/pool is awesome! We spent most of our time outdoors swimming, grilling, and just hanging out. It is also a short 10-15 minute drive to the Penn State Campus. Lisa couldn't have been sweeter or any more accomodating! We would definitely rent this house again! We had a great time!

“AMAZING!”

“Fantastic Homecoming”

Reviewed 30 Sep 2014

our group of 10 had a fantastic experience renting this property for Homecoming weekend. The house is very clean and well maintained, has great amenities (pool, fire pit, grilles, kegerator...), enough beds and couches for every person in our group, and the owner even made us dinner for our arrival!

“Great house - Lisa is awesome!”

From start to finish, Lisa made our stay fantastic. She did everything to make our stay comfortable and stress free. We have always stayed in hotels for Happy Volley Championships. Never again! This is a great place to rent and so close to the college! 10 minute drive (if that) THANK YOU!

“Simply wonderful!”

This was our 2nd time at this home - the 1st being a football game during the 2013 season and we returned in May for our son's graduation. We can't say enough about the accommodations and cleanliness of the home. The owner is beyond gracious and ensures that you have everything you need to entertain and be comfortable. This recent stay, we ascended on Friday afternoon, and were joined by a total of 18 relatives for that evening. Everyone had a place to sleep! We had the early graduation and returned to the home to host a BBQ for the families of our son's roommates. The kids were playing throughout the yard while the adults hung at the deck. It was a 24 hour graduation celebration that no one wanted to leave! The owner prepared her home for our elder relatives and we were able to accommodate their sleeping arrangements on the main floor in a private area. From our previous stay, we knew we would be greeted by the owner's smoked ribs and chicken,,,to die for! However, this time I was in need of more and asked if she would be interested in catering part of the food for the graduation festivities - in less than a week's notice, she prepared her smoked delicacies, home made mac & cheese, salads and even did the perishable food shopping for me so that I didn't have to transport the items in the car. Everyone that came commented on the perfect set up - it is almost not to be believed, but it is all true. So, I would highly recommend this home for any PSU occasion. Don't get scared away from the distance - it was actually nice to have our own quiet and private area away from the hustle and bustle downtown. On the Friday evening, we were at the Creamery at 10:30 pm and under the stars in the yard by 11:00 pm! Again, simply wonderful!

“Great house, great hospitality!”

My friends and I recently stayed at this rental home for a Penn State football weekend! The owner was very easy to work with and the house was fully stocked. We were able to do a lot of tailgate preparations with the fully stocked kitchens. There was internet available for friends who needed to work and ample space for all of us! Great place, highly recommended.

“Great house, awesome deck and super owner”

Reviewed 25 Sep 2013

House was perfect for our needs: a large family group in for a football game. Home is lovely, clean and well maintained. There was a plenty of floor space for air mattresses to accommodate more than 10 ppl. there were plenty of amenities provided as listed and some not even listed, ie, paper goods which were a bonus amongst other items. The outside deck was amazing as the pictures show. Ample parking. We had 5 cars. Home is in the country in a quiet neighborhood. Commute to stadium took about 15 minutes. The owner was extremely nice and simply a pleasure. She was very helpful answering many questions about the area and even where to get game day food. Will definitely look to stay here again and again. I cannot say enough kind words about our experience. We had terrible rain for the game but we still had a terrific time. The house and the owner's hospitality played a huge role in our fun!
