STILL TIME TO ENJOY A STAY WITH A LARGE PRIVATE HEATED POOL AND HOT TUB

About Cheryl and Charlie
This property has been in our family for nearly 70 years. I've lived here all my life. As I was growing up it was an active family farm raising Champion Black Angus Cows for many years. We later had sheep and dairy goats and chickens as part of the family too. My very favorite farm animal was the French Alpine Dairy Goats. We would milk them twice a day and make delicious goat milk fudge, goat milk cheese and even wonderful soaps. The best part of having the goats was enjoying their unique and fun loving personalities. They were so mischievous and unique in every way... each of them knew their own names and were very smart. When my husband Charlie and I married, over 40 years ago, we built a home, on the same property, just up the road. Our children played in the creek, just as I did, explored the land and grew up playing in the same meadows. I grew up with a great love for animals and the homestead and hope you enjoy it too.
Why Cheryl and Charlie chose State College
We absolutely love this property because it is so close to everything the area offers. We enjoy having lots of space and privacy and you will truly have a feel of the country... yet your so close to town. The home enables you to enjoy everything fun and educational that the town has to offer and it only takes a couple minutes to get there. We often see deer out in our yard or grazing in one of the meadows and they visit Spring Creek, right behind the home, for a nice cool drink of water. It's fun to watch them and the many different birds and other wild life that come to visit.
What makes this House unique
This property is incredible and unique in many ways. Each season has so many wonderful things to offer. The winter is especially beautiful. The snow blankets all the trees with a beautiful lacy look and is so beautiful , fresh and clean. It's like a winter wonderland. I also love seeing the moon as it reflects off of the stream in the night and hear the owls and hawks. Several times we have seen a Bald Eagle who was nesting just down the road. We see deer often and even an occasional black bear. With the large meadows and stream you have plenty of room to do activities. Maybe throw a football or hit a few golf balls.. Or you can tube or fish in Spring Creek. The spring is gorgeous here with hundreds of flowering bulbs everywhere and of course the summer is lots of fun with all the flower gardens, patio's and heated pool. It's just a fun place to be. We have an eye for details and will do everything we can to make your stay special.

Beautiful, Private, and Welcoming
This property is absolutely beautiful. Every amenity you could need is readily available and Cheryl and Charlie are gracious hosts. Their heart is in caring for this property and it shows! Thank you for allowing us the chance to stay here while we had commitments at PSU, we cannot wait to return. As a busy farm family, it was appreciated so much to arrive to waters, yogurts, bagels, fresh fruit, fresh eggs, a Keurig and assorted coffee, condiments and a snack basket that definitely filled the gaps of what I had the time to pack for us. Even when we realized my husband forgot his cuff links (right before we had to leave to be at the event) it was Cheryl to the rescue with pins. The fresh eggs are a delicious treat and the surprise delivery of the best home made chocolate chip cookies we have had brought smiles to all of us. Cheryl, I do not know how you bake such perfectly looking cookies that also taste wonderful. My family really enjoyed the hot tub and heated pool which we had all to ourselves. We cannot wait to return to visit kindrid spirits.
