About Erik Viker
I'm a professional stagehand and theatre professor and my wife Brenda is an administrator at Penn State's graduate business school. We split our time between our Bellefonte home, affectionately knows as "Halfmoon House" because of the location on Halfmoon Hill, and our other home in Selinsgrove, PA. This means Halfmoon House can always available on weekends if you need an excellent place to stay. We like to travel, and it makes us happy to help other travelers find a special place to rest and relax as they pass through our community. Whether you're visiting for a football game, a local event, or just looking for a getaway, Bellefonte is a great destination. We often travel with Sparky, a quiet and sweet-natured Tibetan Spaniel. He's traveled from Texas to Manhattan and from Maine down to Georgia.
Erik Viker purchased this House in 2015
Why Erik Viker chose Bellefonte
We love the location, overlooking a bustling little downtown but surrounded by a quiet, friendly neighborhood.
What makes this House unique
This home is compact but feels spacious because it was very well designed. It's historic in spirit, but with all the necessities of modern life. This is the quintessential "just right" house.

Fabulous home! Super clean with lots of darling well thought out decor. Extremely clean!
We visited our daughter at Penn State and stayed in Bellafonte. Darling quaint town. Halfmoon is a wonderful home that is extremely clean with all the amenities you need. Simple easy instructions to get to the home and easy to follow instructions to find what you need in the home. Overall it’s a 5 Star! You will love it as much as we did. Oh!

Beautiful Home and Great Stay
We stayed at the Viker's home for a weekend, as we were taking our freshman son to Penn State to drop him there. We were so happy we stayed for the weekend, and the Viker's were amazing hosts. Their home is so well-kept and we spent a lot of time on the front porch each evening. Eric checked in on us before and during the weekend and the hospitality was amazing. We will be going back to PSU often over the next four years and will definitely be hoping to stay here. We highly recommend this home and are grateful that we ended up here and for the Viker's service.
