My teen daughter and I stayed at The Rock Garden B&B and simply loved it. The home is well appointed, clean and the decor and amenities modern and charming. From the roaring fireplace crackling in the living room and wrap around porch with rockers, to the yummy cookies we enjoyed upon arrival - all of the little touches were an...

Just like home, the food is great, and each room is impeccable, always has a fire going downstairs, just a nice place to stay. And they don't raise their rates for football or events at Penn State. Only 6 min. from the college.

This is a great place to stay in Happy Valley! We loved how open, airy and CLEAN the house is and how attentive Joe was to all his guests. The house is situated on a picturesque 17 acres about 10 minutes to the heart of State College and we will absolutely stay at The Rock Garden again! This was our...

We found this place on TripAdvisor and liked the comments by former guests. And they were all right: this is a great place to stay when visiting State College. It's only 11 years old, so it has all the modern conveniences, and, yes, the owners are the nicest people you'd ever want to meet. Very accommodating, helpful. They go the...

This truly one of the nicest and most scenic places in the State College/Penn State area. Joe is friendly and helpful and serves a wonderful breakfast. His wife is lovely, as well! The rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean! Access to the surrounding area - wineries, hiking, great restaurants, antique shops, Penn State, etc. is easy and nearby.

First, this home is lovely and quite new. It has everything that Chip and Joanne (from the TV show "Fixer Upper") would do when designing a house and more. Every room is spacious and clean; our bed was very comfortable. It has a large wrap-around porch, which is great for reading, chatting, or just enjoying the scenic, mountain views. Second,...

Lovely B&B in an equally lovely setting. Joe is a very accommodating host, and serves an excellent breakfast. All rooms are spacious, bright, and spotlessly clean.We stayed in the Garden Room, which faces north. The couple with whom we were travelling stayed in the Oak Hall Room - on the ground floor, with a huge ADA-compliant bathroom. Bed was very...

This is actually among the nices B&B I ever stayed. The surrounding and the views are superb. And the access o Penn State is easy and short. The place is rather new very testily recorated, but not rich on traditional paintings etc. Ihor Shust

Spacious, soothing, calm, and spotlessly clean B&B. The room and bed were super comfortable and Joe makes an incredible breakfast. Plenty to do in the surrounding area, but it was also easy to get back and forth to Penn State Law

I have only good things to say about this bed and breakfast. First of all, its clean, the rooms a beautiful, spacious and comfortable and the owners are wonderful.
