À propos de ce logement

One of six available bedrooms in a large, stately, quiet home in Hollidaysburg. Five miles from Altoona. Private bathroom with shower. Fine breakfast with freshly ground coffee included. No in-room TV, but there's high-speed Wi-Fi. Ceiling fan, window AC.

Le logement

This enormous Second Empire home is full of nooks & crannies to explore. There are six large bedrooms to choose from, each with a private full washroom. There is a large dining room, a parlour and an even larger "great room", with 12-foot pier mirrors and a baby grand piano, we use for receptions and recitals.

Accès des voyageurs

There's no TV on offer here, but we have high-speed internet. Plenty of books and periodicals, too, with interesting places to sit and read. We also have many folk instruments - guitars, banjos, mandolins, dulcimers - around the house that guests are welcome to play.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

We have two kids of our own to look after, so we won't be in anyone's hair. We will serve guests a very nice breakfast, better than you'll find anywhere else in the area. We use fresh ground Quartermaine coffee, turkey bacon, fresh fruit and organic free range eggs.

Autres remarques

LANGUAGES: We are multilingual. We can communicate in French, Mandarin and Hindi.

FOOD: Our breakfast is made from mostly certified organic ingredients. Most basics like milk, eggs and butter are organic. Sourcing things like organic cheese, turkey bacon and bread is more difficult where we are, but we do our best to ensure quality.

We are very sensitive to dietary restrictions of any kind. Just tell us in advance, and we can provide a full scrumptious breakfasts that are suitable for vegans, lacto-ovo vegetarians, diabetics, and those on gluten-free, low-carb or low-fat diets.

We pay close attention to every ingredient. We do not serve any processed food. We don't eat beef or pork and don't generally serve them, but if you require them in your breakfast diet, please let us know in advance and we will accommodate you. We do serve turkey products and, occasionally, seafood, but we maintain separate utensils for vegetarians.

MUSIC: The house has many folk instruments, especially mountain dulcimers, that guests are welcome to play. There's a baby grand piano, kept tuned a half-step down, that is missing some ivory skins but is nonetheless a joy to play. There are also guitars, fiddles, citeras, a nyckelharpa, a sitar and various other folk instruments from around the world.

An impetuous decision just a few days before heading to State College for work landed me on Hollidaysburg as a good location for an extra night away. Finding this BnB with availability on a Saturday night during peak fall color season and on the day of the town's Halloween Parade was somewhat astounding. Previsit communication was prompt and cordial. I had a lovely room on the top floor complete with a large en suite bathroom (big tub AND shower), queen sized bed, window nooks, refrigerator, and fresh fruit. The hosts were helpful and wonderful to talk to but never intrusive. Even though all the rooms were occupied, I never heard the other guests until breakfast, when we chatted over a delicious multi-course breakfast at a large table. This was a very special Airbnb experience.

It turned out to be way better than I had expected. The neighborhood was nice and quiet. Breakfast was amazing. Unfortunately, I had to cut short my stay but the hosts were very helpful with working something out for me. I would definitely recommend to a friend.

This was an awesome AirBnB. The hosts were super accommodating, including offering me tea and fruit when I arrived from my tiring drive. Jyoti provided good suggestions for dinner within walking distance. The breakfast the next morning was enough to keep me going through the entire day. Conversation at the breakfast table with the other guests and Jyoti was lovely, and interesting, too.

This home is beautiful and the Thomas More room was clean, quiet, and comfortable, giving us the best sleep that my wife and I have had on any of our trips. Guests also have access to a large commons room, which provides good opportunities to relax and interact with the hosts and other guests, if you so desire. And if you get the chance to hear Richard play piano, it's a real treat. Richard and Jyoti were friendly and accommodating. They're quick to offer a cup of coffee or tea when they meet you in the common room. Since this is a true bed and breakfast, they treat you to a breakfast of any-style eggs, bacon, fresh fruit, oatmeal, juice, coffee, and tea. Having fresh fruit was especially welcome, since fresh fruit while eating out on business trips is often sparse. They also left apples, bananas, and bottled water in the room, which is a step above even a hotel. The neighborhood is also very nice, with easy parking on a quiet street, and very quick access to the Blair County Convention Center (less than a 10 minute drive). All in all, this was an exceptional trip and a great value for the price.

What a lovely, historic place. Every nook and corner was interesting. The house and room were very comfortable, and Richard and family were so friendly and accommodating. And the omelet was just the right amount of spicy!
