Nice to Have a Whole House to Relax In

  • 4 of 5

Fairly well maintained. Very clean. Most kitchen equipment available for cooking. Limited (9) channels on TV but DVD player (provided) occupied down time. Could have used a few clocks throughout the house, especially in the bedroom (no alarm). The only clock is on the microwave. Heat worked great, very comfy during cool nights. Water pressure was good. Coffee pot is a nice feature. Washer, dryer, and soap/softener available if needed. Overall very enjoyable (long) weekend spent.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We lived there for a month. The house was very clean and cozy and had all the amenities we needed. The internet worked flawlessly. There was a huge yard with a fire pit. The hosts Audrey and Kevin were very friendly and helpful. Across the yard there is a bakery open Thursday-Saturday, which you should check out. We commuted almost every day to State College, which is about 35-45 min of pleasant driving. The lake is about 15 min. Shopping centers (Walmart, Weiss, etc.) are nearby (less than 10 min). The wilds of Sproul State Forest are nearby. Overall, it was a great place to live which we definitely recommend .

Excellent, clean, spacious, facility close to Lock Haven University and Penn State. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return to the area again. Check out the bakery next door! You won't come home lighter!

Perfect for a weekend in Lock Haven

  • 5 of 5

I don't know if I should review this or not because I know how us baseball moms are - we find something we like and go after it!! I rented this house for a wood bat tournament in Lock Haven. I figured it would be nicer than a hotel because the family could have space after some long, hot days, and it surly was. It was almost like we got to stay home instead of having to travel another weekend. All the amenities were on point - it was great to make a breakfast rather than buy one. The home is minutes away from the Lock Haven fields, so no super early mornings. Check in/out was very easy. I'll be looking this place up the next time we're in the area!
