Petersburg House Rental Photos and Description

A quiet, comfortable country retreat, nestled between two state parks. Located near the Village of McAlevy’s Fort in Huntingdon County, the property borders Standing Stone creek, a great fishing spot, and is 15 miles from State College, about 4 miles from Greenwood Furnace State Park and Whipples Dam State Park. The Creek House sleeps 8-9 comfortably (7 adults, 2 children in upper bunk beds), has a recently updated kitchen, large living room, 2 bathrooms and covered back porch. A picnic pavilion, fire ring and horseshoe pits near the gently sloping trail to the creek give plenty of options for outdoor fun!

Whether you are coming to the area for a Penn State football weekend, gathering friends for a fishing trip or just hoping for a quiet spot to relax and enjoy, The Creek House will provide just what you are looking for!

We are also right next door to the McCann Studebaker Farm, so if you are planning a wedding or other event, The Creek House is a great place for your guests to stay and be close to the action!

Please do remember - you are coming to the country - bring your sunscreen and bug spray - there are always a few critters around! :-)

Three Bedrooms:

1) master with in-suite bathroom,

2) room with 1 twin bed and 1 set twin bunk beds

3) room with twin over full bunk bed

Bathrooms: 2 full

Beds: 1Q, 1 full with twin bunk over, 1 twin, 1 set of twin bunk beds, 1 full futon in living room

Kitchen: microwave, refrigerator/freezer, gas stove, coffee maker, toaster, blender,

plates/cups/silverware, washer/dryer

Other: gas grill, firepit, firewood, pavilion with picnic table, horseshoe pit, fishing creek access, 40” flatscreen TV with DirecTV service and wi-fi;

Please note: we do not allow smoking in the house or on the porches and no pets are allowed; we do have a couple of honeybee hives - in an out of the way corner, behind a fence - you probably will never know they are there and if it's the right time of year, we may be able to give you a small jar of our honey! But if someone in your group is severely allergic to bees, this may not be best choice for you.

About Dee and Gary Bagshaw

We purchased The Creek House in 2014 with the intent to enjoy some quiet country weekends and to have a place for family and friends to stay on football weekends or to enjoy some great fishing and hunting in the area. We wanted to have a place to make some cheese, keep a couple of honeybee hives and enjoy a campfire with friends & family. We are ready to share this quiet little spot and hope you will find a reason to come and stay!

My husband grew up in the Village of McAlevy's Fort, just down the road and I've lived in the area for over 30 years. We love the "University town" of State College, offering lots to do, but always enjoy the quiet of the surrounding valleys. We hope you will enjoy your stay if you choose to come to The Creek House!

Why Dee and Gary Bagshaw chose Pennsylvania

When we first saw this property, we knew it could be a fun place for family & friends. The creek is wonderful and its a quiet, easy to get to spot close to our home in State College. Our kids and their friends enjoy spending time here.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a marvelous stay at the Creek House. The home is comfortable and clean. We were pleased with the well-stocked kitchen. The pictures and the listing are accurate. The best part of this property is the outdoor space. It is obvious the owners have lovingly maintained the grounds. It is the perfect place to relax, unplug, and unwind. Another plus is that it is only 15 miles to State College making it a perfect place to stay for events at Penn State.

Great spot for a game day weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at The Creek House. It was a fantastic venue for a low key weekend for anyone trying to escape to the country! The house was cozy and comfortable. I only wish we had time to enjoy the fire pit and picnic pavilion. This would be a wonderful option for anyone who wants an outdoor experience with all of the amenities of home.

The Creek House is about a 20 minute drive to Penn State's campus and we were able to get into State College with no traffic!!

Dee and Gary were excellent hosts and the house was very tidy and welcoming. We really appreciated the communication from them as we made our plans.

I would definitely stay here again if we find ourselves in the area.

Perfect Spot for a Getaway Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The Creek House was a perfect spot for a getaway weekend to visit my daughter at PSU and go to a football game!

We really enjoyed sitting around the fire pit on a cool fall night! We were so surprised to uncover the firepit and see

that our hosts had it all ready to go for us!! What a thoughtful gesture!!

Great weekend getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Creek House! Close enough to enjoy the Homecoming festivities and PSU football weekend, but just far enought to be nice and quiet in the country.

We enjoyed the spacious backyard, firepit, and creek at the rear of the property. We will return!

Great property, Great location, Great Football Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Although the house could use some upgrades, the property and location are unbeatable! I would recommend the property to anyone - the backyard, living room w/big screen, kitchen, fire pit, and location were perfect and provided a nice get away for a weekend with friends and family. We'll likely be booking a stay again soon.

Beautiful home and grounds. Great location

  • 4 of 5

Overall The house was great. Beautiful property. Lovely and spacious grounds. Close to hiking and swimming and great scenery. The only downside was the lack of reliable internet connection which made for difficulties communicating with family and looking up information and directions for the different parks and forests

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your time at The Creek House and surrounding area. As you can probably imagine, in a rural area, internet connections can be tough. Our service is generally pretty consistent so I'm sorry you were having any issues and hope it was not too much of an inconvenience. All the best, Dee & Gary
