Booked this place because it was the only room we could find within 45 minutes of Penn State University after a football game. Turned out to be a really nice little place tucked away in the country. It had a beautiful view out of our window and well maintained grounds. The free breakfast provided was above average and check in...

We love football weekends at Penn State, but hotels in State College require two-night stays and double or triple their rates, making it an expensive proposition. We just discovered Edgewater Inn, 40 miles southwest of campus, which saved us a lot of money, provided a comfortable stay, and included a hearty breakfast before an exciting Penn State win over Big...

We recently spent three nights at the Edgewater while attending a wedding on the property. The facility was fantastic for a wedding event, with the large lawn easily accommodating a substantial tent and the river side scene providing a perfect backdrop for the wedding ceremony. The food was ample and tasty and the staff could not have been more friendly...

My husband and I have stayed at many inns and B and B's. We are frequent travelers. We read the reviews of the Edgewater Inn before we booked it. I cannot figure out why there are glowing reviews. From the minute we arrived, my hopes for a night at a lovely Inn were dashed.Their systems were down, so they did...

Hello Bobbie, We are very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay at Edgewater and that it was not what you were anticipating. We do not promote that we are a luxury Inn, which sounds like what you were expecting in accommodations. All of our furnishings in the rooms are solid, maple, handcrafted furniture that we feel...

Built in 1762, I wonder if Washington slept here? Our one night stay was very pleasant in spite of some limitations. We weren't here for fancy. Located on a lazy river, guests had the option of fishing, hiking trails or we could have stayed for a family friendly bluegrass festival. We enjoyed a good dinner at the bar as I...

We stayed here to visit my Grandaughter who lives in the area so location was perfect for us. The grandeur of the hotel especially looking at it from the road is broad and beautiful. Inside is in bad need of updating and the room was just so. TV Did not work! Really old style with fuzzy pictures just a bummer....

I stayed just one night with my teenage daughter so we could attend something at Juniata College. We didn't get to experience much of the inn but it was in a peaceful setting against a creek/small river (Juniata river?) surrounded by farm land and mountains.

What great place to sit back and relax by the river after a long drive. Peaceful and tranquil. Accommodations were very comfortable rooms were well appointed and clean. Staff was very friendly. Breakfast was amazing! I could not finish my omelet. I will return on a night the restaurant is open. 👍👍👍👍👍

The Edgewater Inn began as a log cabin built by William Penn's grandson, John, in 1762. The crossroads of Hart's Log, a trading station with Indians, was the only post of settlement in the area which eventually became the small town of Alexandria. Staying at the Edgewater Inn is like taking a step back in time when peacefulness and the...
