Welcome to the Pennsylvania Wilds! Spend the night in a little clearing in our 60 acre wood. We use only dark sky lights so the stars are in full bloom. Chickens run free, laundry hangs on the line, and your private room provides a quiet haven.
Perfect for travellers (5 miles from I-80), Penn State fans, outdoor enthusiasts, or a couple's retreat.
We are also a bed-and-breakfast, so a full menu is included. Options rotate but include homemade yogurt, baking soda biscuits, crepes, and fresh eggs
This is a new construction with private, secure access. The basement is unfinished and has a wood-burning stove that will be warm and cozy in the winter. This space is all available to the guest.
The finished space is the guest room with newly installed carpet and high ceilings. There is a large window and two closets. The bed is a full bed, and cots and pack-n-plays are available upon request. There is also a private full bath with soaps and fresh towels.
Breakfast, coffee, and tea are included, with gluten-free and vegan options available.
Full (unfinished) basement, yard, and 59 acres of woods.
Interaction with guests
I am a stay-at-home mom and will usually be here to help with any concerns or questions throughout their stay. Laundry facilities are available but require interaction to figure out timing. Otherwise, the guest room and bathroom are entirely private and no interaction is necessary.
Breakfast and coffee are included, but will be left at the bottom of the stairs in the common area unless otherwise requested.
Other things to note
We have a lengthy driveway and 4WD. We don't plow unless it's terribly deep, so please let us know if you don't have a car and we can prepare it for you.
We built our home in the thick of the woods a little over a year and a half ago, and hosting was in the plans from the beginning. We travel often and have been treated to exceptional hosts, so know what you need to be comfortable during your stay. When you arrive, chickens, kittens, and the still forest greet you - and possibly one of our three boys under 5 will too!
We are Penn State fans, Grove City alums, and enthusiastic about providing for people's needs. We make our own yogurt, cut our own firewood, dry our sheets on the laundry line, and play guitar. We love it here in the calm of the woods, and welcome you to it!
