Quiet bedroom, living/dining room and private bath in older home, perfect for a short or longer stay. Private entrance. This space is really like a small one bedroom apartment. Located five minutes from DuBois Regional Medical Center and downtown DuBois. Ten minutes from Penn State Campus. Simply furnished, but comfortable. Wifi provided.

The space

Years ago this house was a duplex. This space has a separate private entrance through the porch. There are two porches, 309 Pifer, the main residence, and 311 Pifer the Airbnb entrance. It has no access to the upstairs although the stairs remain. There is a bathroom with shower in the area outside of the bedroom.

Guest access

The backyard includes a vegetable garden, fruit trees and a concrete patio. There are chairs on the attached narrow back porch which guests are welcome to use. I often sit out there myself. Smoking is allowed.

Interaction with guests

I am familiar with access points to the local rail-to-trail bicycling trails and would be happy to advise. The Beaver Meadow Walkway is close. Downtown DuBois shopping, restaurants, and bars are also close.

Other things to note

My house sits between two empty lots, one across the adjacent paved alley.

We were traveling from OH to CT and needed quick over-night stay. Michael's place was great for the price! It was very clean. If you would enjoy REAL RETRO decor, here's your place!

Nice, quaint place. It's a simple house in a small town. Excellent stopping point for us on our way up north. There were little amenities around the house as well that were really helpful. Mike was nice and was prompt with all communication.

This is a quaint little room with a lovely host. I have never been more comfortable staying in a strange place than I was here, even though it was just for one evening. The local donut shop he recommended is also great!
