Great place to stay with your pet!

5 on November 20, 2017

This is a great place to stay with your pet. Units are large, comfortable, & quiet. A lovely place & neighborhood to relax, take a walk, enjoy. Breakfast is outstanding. Beautiful community, I plan to go back for another visit. However, you might want to book your reservation early especially if you are taking your pet as there are only two units for them to stay in.

Our Queen Stay

3.2 on August 21, 2017

Things were very nice and cozy. Quiet and a very neat, quaint neighborhood. The breakfast was good but would have enjoyed some type of bread, muffin to go along with the eggs. An introduction to the other guests we were eating with would have been appreciated.

Nice but not nice enough to go back

2.6 on August 08, 2017

Three nights at the queen. Never was asked how we slept or how comfortable we were. Bed was nice and soft but we rolled to the middle. Breakfast was tasty but always very sweet and we were never asked if there was anything else we needed. Hostess kept forgetting my de-caf coffee. Host said they can manage gluten free foods but they were not that well prepared and my husband was once served something with gluten. Some of the regular foods were very good. Hosts live and stay under the same roof as the guests (which creates a very different experience) though the website said they have separate quarters. Whoever serviced the room left a half eaten candy on the dresser- not a pleasant discovery.. Hosts did not seem to understand what we were looking for when we DID ask for information/recommendations to places in the area. Assumption that we WOULD come back rather than a request to please come again. The decor was lovely but found the antique extras (like clothing in the closet and the not to be used bath screen) to be a hindrance and the decor throughout the house to be a display showcase for her collectibles. (they were a little too much but I went into the reservation having seen the photos) All eyes point to Penn State so if you are looking for something other than the university you'll have to search it out for yourself like we did. It was clean and quiet and in a quiet safe neighborhood, close enough to walk to the downtown area. The Poo-pourri toilet spray was very effective since the water-closet was very small and had no exhaust fan. Nice but not nice enough to go back to mostly because we felt the service was lacking.

Beg For The Caramelized French Toast! 5 STARS

4.0 on July 06, 2017

A 3 night stay allowed us 2 days of day hikes in nearby state parks. Nancy really loves her role as host and innkeeper and full of knowledge of the area. The Caramelized French Toast is one of my top 10 breakfasts of my 47 years. Tried to put in 5 stars but B& site would not allow more than 4. Strange. So close to I 80 and only 15 min from State College and 30 min from multiple natural areas. Great Location.

This place so exceeded my expectations. Very nice and clean. It was in walking distance of some nice places to eat. I will stay there again.

A fabulous and romantic weekend...

5 on April 06, 2017

My lady and I recently lodged for a weekend at the Queen, in Bellefonte, PA. It was truly a wonderful weekend...the room was cozy and romantic, the accommodations were clean, attention to detail was obvious, and the period furnishings were well maintained. The breakfasts served were delicious and we had great conversation with other guests. The hostess of the Queen was very gracious and offered much of the history to us, when we arrived. She invited us to a private gathering she had scheduled for the weekend, and treated us like old friends. We will definitely return.

Victorian Charm

Stayed here for the weekend with my daughter, I could not be more pleased, excellent service, breakfast was scrumptious. The building reminiscent of the Victorian times, was very nicely decorated for Halloween as well. I left a long sleeve polo by mistake, they found it call me, and will mail it to me. I definitely recommend the place in historic Bellefonte.

Amazing scenery

This area has some amazing views and architecture. This BandB fits right in with the area. Wonderful people to deal with!!

Felt Right at Home

The Queen B&B is the personification of character and charm. I stayed there because it was near where my travel comrades had rooms at another B& B. I'll be back, with my wife, because I can't imagine staying elsewhere.

Fell in love with this place!

Staying at The Queen was the first experience my husband and I had staying at a Bed and Breakfast. We were just doing a mid-week getaway to Penn's Cave and wanted to explore Bellefonte and Boalsburg. What a wonderful place! Very clean room (we stayed in Nana's attic) and a delicious breakfast was served in the dining room. Nancy and Curtis provided so much local history as well as recommendations for places to see and restaurants for dinner. This will certainly not be the last B&B we ever stay at - we might even return to the Queen!
