Parent weekend

4.6 on October 16, 2014

It was a very pleasant and friendly atmosphere. We felt very comfortable. My children and I especially enjoyed the use of the porch area for spending time together without having to be in the room.


Take a break from the Penn State chaos

4.6 on August 29, 2014

While only a few minutes from the main Penn State campus, the Limestone Inn is off the beaten path and even during move-in days was very peaceful and relaxing. The inn has a beautiful back porch along side a wonderful glassed-in room where breakfast is served. We enjoyed just sitting out in the morning and evening between the crush of moving our daughter into the college dorm during the days. As to the other details, the breakfast was very good, the hosts were outstanding, and there were a lot of amenities and nice finishing touches like a personalized welcome sign on the door of our room when we arrived.


Family visit

3.2 on July 18, 2014

Rooms were comfortable, would have preferred bath shower combo. When cleaning the bathroom door needs to be closed so it can be cleaned as well also the vent and light shades. Breakfast was good but warming tray would have been useful to keep items hot. We will definitely stay again when we visit our children.

The Limestone Inn is a wonderful place with pretty grounds, delicious food prepared by the hostess, Karen, comfortable rooms, and a lovely atmosphere. Karen is a gracious and warm hostess.


PSU Blue and White Weekend

Karen was an excellent hostess, she was very amenable and allowed for an early check in. Snacks and coffee available throughout the night, excellent breakfast. Close promimity to the Campus but far enough away to get some peace and quiet.

Wonderful quiet retreat

Karen made us feel wonderfully at home before and during our visit, and I hope to return soon. Absolutely wonderful experience.


Relaxing Spot in Happy Valley

4.0 on March 02, 2014

Great place to stay near Penn State. The location is a short ride to State College, but is located in a quiet, peaceful location. The back porch where breakfast is served is very pleasant. Seems like you are sitting outside. We were there during a snow storm, it would be even nicer when the weather is good. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful, there are choices for all. The house is an old farm house so the rooms are small, but nicely decorated and comfortable.Karen is a gracious host. Would definitely return to stay when I am in the State College Area.


Modest and homey B&B

4.0 on December 30, 2013

We were only there 1 night due to the weather. Did not get to experience much due to the short time there. Would stay there again in the future.
