We bought this as our home when we moved to State College in 2001. Over the years our family has grown and so has our love for the house and the neighborhood. Our work has since taken us out of the area, but our attachment has not diminished. While we can't get there as often as we'd like, we hope others can enjoy the house as we have.

Pamela Becker purchased this house in 2001

We've lived in Boston, the metro DC area, and a small city in northern Italy. Being in the Borough of State College, our Purple House has elements of everything we've loved about every place we've lived. We have great neighbors, and are close to everything, without the hassle of a big city.

Stepping out the front door and heading down the quiet tree lined street, you can walk anywhere your mood takes you.

Excellent!!

  • 5 of 5
The Purple House was our home away from home for two weeks. What a wonderful experience this was! The house was spotless, in a perfect location to walk just about everywhere, comfortable, and even stocked with basic spices, trash bags, etc. Pam was great, so organized and pleasant to deal with. Nice neighbors, and a nice screened porch to drink our coffee and enjoy the mild State College weather! Thank you for a wonderful trip, we hope to come back next year!

Wonderful home, terrific experience

  • 5 of 5
This was a home away from home for us. The house was extremely clean, well stocked and very comfortable. Even the beds!!! We would definitely recommend this rental to others and return if ever visiting Penn State again.

Fantastic Family Getaway at The Purple House

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a fabulous time at The Purple House! It is a great rental property. Very clean and well stocked. It had everything we needed. It is the perfect location for walking campus and making trips to the creamery! We rarely used our car. The owners were very helpful and provided a map of the area with stores, hiking trails, playgrounds, and local sites. It was so nice to come back to a welcoming home after spending the day out walking around. Would definitely go back again!

Great weekend rental

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay for the Blue/White game. The house slept 2 families (4 adults, 5 kids ages 3-7) quite comfortably. The house is well maintained and in a great location. Definitely walking distance to the stadium and campus. Our kids loved the big yard! We hope to come back again.
