This property, while in the country, is still close to many interesting activities. The house is conveniently located near Johnstown, Altoona, Bedford and State College. The guest house is just 10 minutes off the Pa turnpike and also just 5 minutes off I-99.
There are brochures in the guest house for information on local places to visit. The brochures will direct guests to everything from spa's, shopping, antiques, bike trails, museums, covered bridges, hiking, skiing, and so much more.
I have been a life long antique and folk art collector as well as a shop keeper for over 25 years. The guest house showcases all that I love, antiques, folk art, quality reproductions coupled with my commitment to provide all the comforts of home. One of our guests wrote "the house is a great respite to decompress from the daily grind, sitting on the back porch listening to the birds sing."
This three bedroom house is on a 144 acre farm that is rich with history. The Spring Meadow farm was deeded in 1796 and the earliest owners were Quakers. Some of the Quakers that lived on this farm were involved in the underground railroad. Another interesting fact is just before the civil war President Buchanan would visit here. In the 1880's senator John M. Reynolds bought the farm at a sheriff sale. He had the road paved between the barn and the train station so he would have a smooth horse and buggy ride when he needed to head to Washington. It was the only paved road in the entire county. That is a sampling of the history here.
The guest house is nestled between the 1840's house and the barn. Come sit on the screened in back porch and sip coffee, tea, or drink of choice and enjoy the scenic views and the wildlife (birds, ground hogs, and deer). In the evenings you can grill out on the porch, swing in the hammock,or have a bon-fire. We also provide 2 cannondale bikes for your use. A great place to unwind with all the amenities of home.
We have hosted reunions, birthdays, quiet getaways and even weddings. Rent our Guest House and revisit life in simpler times.
Try a women's weekend! I have had many groups of women who have come and enjoyed a girls weekend. Some shopped, some cooked, some did crafts, some just enjoyed chatting with their friends, some have had a wine tasting party, and some have celebrated birthdays. No matter what they came to do, they all have enjoyed this guest house. Many are planning return visits. You can't go wrong spending a weekend with your girlfriends.
We had a great experience at the Spring Meadows Guest house. Was perfect for family get togethers and lots of room for the kids to play. The owners were very accommodating, we'll definitely be back for another stay.....Eva and Bryan
We stayed here while in town for a family reunion. The kids loved the country, fishing, campfires, grilling out, eating on the porch, space to run around and it was so nice to have our own space to return home to after a long day! Great having a washer and dryer also
My experience included a great day with friends!! The quiet setting added to the ambiance of the quaint home we stayed in. The private area was so accommodating with parking and space for all to enjoy! All necessities were available and I felt at home during our stay. I look forward to another great gathering!!
Stayed here for a long girls weekend. Cottage is full of antiques and so much character, has all the amenities you could need for a getaway. Very clean and well kept, it's obvious the owners care (and are super friendly). Huge screened porch with a lovely PA countryside view, we even had the opportunity to build a fire and roast some smores! Highly recommended
I stayed there for my bachelorette gathering. It was wonderful! The setting outside is gorgeous as well as the decorating style inside. The owners were fabulous and had firewood for us to have a campfire in the evening. We loved our time on the back porch having a glass of wine. There were also yard games available for us to use. We had a fabulous time! This is great for a girls weekend! This house does not disappoint!
I hate to have to write a review like this but I don't want anyone else to have to experience what we did (or worse?) so I'll write it anyhow. The owner is a SUPER nice person and lives in her own home- right next door to the guest house. We arrived late (9pm) on a Sunday night and entered the guest house very tired from traveling. It looked fabulous-beautiful primitive antiques & charming decor. Luckily we didn't bring anything into the house at that time-just my purse & milk/pop for the fridge. We opened the door to the fridge and my youngest son saw bugs run up the side of the fridge and said "What kind of bugs are those?" HOLY COW - ROACHES! We quickly left the milk and pop in the fridge and fled the home immediately! I contacted the owner and she said she was unaware of this issue and would call an exterminator immediately. We were forced to find alternative housing in the middle of a Sunday night which was extremely inconvenient but at the same time, we were SO thankful that we saw them nearly immediately and we able to get out of the house without them getting into our belongings. I hope the owner will take care of the situation because this home really is cute and well worth saving.
I recommend to our guests to try and visit some of the things listed here.Omni Bedford Springs Spa, The Coverlet museum, Old Bedford Village, The Fort Museum, Antique shopping, Johnstown Flood museum and Heritage museum, Shawnee Park, Blue Knob Park, Lakemont Amusement Park, DelGrosso Amusement Park, Altoona Curve baseball, Frank LLoyd Wright's Falling Waters, & more. There are many things to do within driving distance. Or many guests opt to just relax at the house play yard games and have evening bonfires.
