Fully furnished and appointed apartment will be your home away from home. The large master bedroom has a king bed and a sunny walkout patio overlooking Mount Nittany. The custom kitchen has new, full-sized appliances.

The space

Spend your football, ArtsFest, or other weekend in your private getaway in quiet Centre Hills Village in this newly renovated walk-out basement apartment.

Order pizza, pasta, calzones, or subs from The Cove (half a mile away at the bottom of the hill -- they deliver!) and spend Friday night in on the king bed in the large bedroom with a movie or TV show on the large flatscreen TV.

Saturday morning, watch the sun rise over Mount Nittany as you sip your fresh-brewed coffee outside at your own patio table. If the morning is chilly, you can take in the same view through the large windows in the walk-out. Later, over breakfast, look out over the Mitchell Farm valley and Lemont and you might see the local fox and her kit against the white snow. Go for a stroll in neighboring Thompson Woods Preserve on the miles of walking trails.

On your way to the game, you might stop at Spring Creek Presbyterian Cemetery (less than 2 blocks away) to pay your respects to Joe Pa, or head straight to the Stadium. If you want to avoid the traffic you can walk through the scenic Thomson Woods Preserve and down Walnut Spring Lane to the South Atherton Shuttle on University and Easterly (just over a mile from your door). Whether walking, busing, or driving, your total trip is less than 2.5 miles.

After the festivities, return to your private entrance and enjoy preparing a late snack in the brand-new custom kitchen. Savor a Nittany Lions victory soaking in the tub in the large bathroom while you listen to the post-game show on the radio.

Sunday morning enjoy your breakfast at the kitchen bar before packing up and jumping onto 322, a quarter mile from the bottom of Squirrel Ave., for your return home.

Interaction with guests

Julie and Jason are great hosts. Before our arrival they contacted us to get informed about our dietary needs and provided us with a full kitchen. Later on they brought us tons of toys for our kids to play with. The apartment is very nice with a beautiful view on Mt Nittany. We really enjoyed our stay! cheers, Alexander

We stayed here for four nights over Penn State graduation. The apartment is exactly as described and perfect for the four of us. It was clean, well stocked and very comfortable. The location, though not walkable to the college, was ideal. You could drive to/from the neighborhood from College Ave (by 322) or Atherton Ave, essentially avoiding the chaos and congestion of the main college traffic. Julia was excellent with communication! If there had been a problem, I know it would have been quickly resolved. Unfortunately, we never met Julia, but we did have a pleasant conversation with Jason. This was a wonderful rental that I highly recommend!

The place was clean and exactly matched he description. The hosts were very welcoming and friendly, and we had plenty of space for two couples. The neighborhood was also lovely, and the commute to penn state is very reasonable.
