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

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!

4.0 on July 11, 2016

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!


Friendly and Relaxing

We had a such a wonderful, relaxing weekend at The Queen. We stayed in Anne's Room and relaxed in the clawfoot slipper tub. Nancy was so informative, and friendly.....the perfect host. Breakfast was delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed the company. We highly recommend The Queen!

Favorite BnB in Central PA

5 on November 30, 2014

There is so much thought and love put into every detail at the Queen. Immaculate rooms with ultra comfortable beds and fabulous amenities at no extra cost, you are encouraged to relax in the shared spaces by one of the many fireplaces and enjoy a s'more or glass of wine. Warm and welcoming, Nancy is the consummate host, quick to accommodate, share information and whip up a custom breakfast. A 5 star experience without pretension.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for the wonderful compliments. The fireplace is lit and the marshmallows are waiting. Please come again soon.

Planning a 3rd stay

5 on August 16, 2014

This was our 2nd stay at The Queen, A Victorian Bed and Breakfast. It was every bit as comfortable, relaxing, and enjoyable as was our 1st. Nancy the owner/innkeeper is willing to help wherever she can even giving information and advice on what to do in the area, where and how to find what you are hungry for (Curtis also will help with that) - and they both were right!! And don't forget the delicious breakfast choices Nancy gives you. YUM My husband and I so rarely get away. He chose The Queen and even Nanny's Attic both times, and I am happy he did. He is so comfortable here at The Queen that when we left this time he was already talking about coming back to try The Governor's Suite next time - he wants to see all the hunting and fishing collectables as those are his interests. The Queen is not hard to find. There is convenient free on street parking, there are so many items from the past to see that you will not be bored, there is a porch swing to enjoy and the neighborhood fits the atmosphere of a time long ago, those sheets are so soft and comfortable they make you feel special, there is well stocked coffee and tea area, and last Nanny's Attic was quiet even when the thunderstorm was happening. We know that we got so much value for the price we paid.


lovely house,perfect hostess

We came to the queen very late and cold. But Nancy gave us a warm welcome. The bed is comfortable and my daughter loves all her toys. We didn't stay a long time, but if we have chance, we will come back again.
