About this property

Beautiful Mountain Getaway Close to Penn State University!

Beautiful, spacious, private, Mountain Get Away home located on Nittany Ridge and ever so convenient for Penn State and other State College and Centre County attractions. Beautifully appointed and spacious. Enjoy the privacy of the wooded setting in the hot tub on the deck or simply relax and unwind from city life. Enjoy the beauty of Nittany Valley (the home is situated on 15 pristine acres) while you are only 27 minutes to the Penn State Campus, Beaver Stadium, the Bryce Jordan Center, and Medlar Field at Lobrano Park-the State College Spikes Minor League Baseball Stadium. It is also a great home base for other Center County attractions like the Grange Fair, Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts, or summer vacations in close proximity to the Bald Eagle State Park and Foster Sayers Lake, Penn’s Cave and Wildlife preserve, and Woodward Cave only minutes away-not hours! For Fly Fishermen and Hunters, Spring Creek, Penn’s Creek, and the Bald Eagle Creek, have some of the best Trout Fishing anywhere. For Hunting season, deer, turkey, and bear are plentiful and some are record breakers. Why stay in town when you can enjoy country living in a beautiful home and stay in one of the most beautiful areas in Pennsylvania? It’s also interesting to note that Nittany Valley has one of the largest Amish Communities in the State. You can find baked goods, cheese shops, leather goods, quilts, and see Amish Farms at work in traditional ways. With excellent country roads (with very little traffic) you can drive 20 miles in the time it takes to drive 2 in the city!
