Springfield House Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 2 Boalsburg B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 August 2008

We stayed for two nights at Springfield Inn during the PSU Arts Festival. The inn was very comfortable and Bill the innkeeper was so personable. We were very much left alone to enjoy our stay, but we knew where to find Bill if there was anything we needed.

The entire house was very clean and well decorated. The porch is delightful and the backyard is a relaxing place to spend some time.! Within walking distance of good restaurants.

We don't always like B&B's but we felt completely at home and comfortable at Springfield House.

Just returned from a stay at The Springfield House In historic Boalsburg, Pennsylvania, USA. Each year we three couples get away for a short weekend during March (our own March Madness). We try to find smaller interesting places to visit ... we limit our visits to a Saturday overnight. This year was once again our turn to choose the locale to visit. We picked up a flyer for Boalsburg during a weekend stay at a Penn State University football game last fall and were fascinated that so much history could be so close. The Springfield House has been lovingly restored with all the modern conveniences one could want while maintaining the aura of the 1800s. The hospitality was superb, the accommodations more than spotless with warm and inviting guest rooms (some with gas fireplaces) and public rooms where we were able to gather to enjoy some complimentary local wine and chocolates and great conversation. The Springfield House is within walking distance (literally across the street) of Duffy's Tavern (a 17th century wonder) and several other lovely shops as well as a charming museum. The Springfield House is also a short drive to State College. The innkeepers serve a wonderful made-to-order breakfast. Did I mention there is a chocolate factory store and a wine store on the property? All in all, a wonderful anytime getaway.

Staying at this charming Victorian home was like taking a step back in time. From enjoying a complimentary glass of wine on the beautiful gingerbread-trimmed veranda to a sumptuous cooked-to-order breakfast in the beautful dining room, ours was a stay to remember. Located in a Victorian village off the beaten path, but within minutes of the Penn State campus, this lovely, completely restored home has all of the charm of old, but all of the comforts of today. Our hosts were warm, friendly, and couldn't have been more accommodating. Our room was comfortable, spacious, and had lots of little "extras", which were unexpected and delightful. My only hope is that I have an opportunity to visit again soon.

My wife an I had a marvelous weekend in State College - visiting our daughter - made all the more enjoyable by our stay at the Springfield House. Everything about this B&B surpassed our expectations, from the warm greeting and friendly breakfasts to the beautiful room and well-appointed bath.
We are already planning return visits for graduations, football games and other family visits.
Just a short drive from State College, you could not find a nicer place to stay in Happy Valley!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at this lovely B&B (which I found thanks to TripAdvisor). Cheryl and Bill were wonderful hosts, sincerely interested in making us as welcome and comfortable as possible. The accommodations were very nice - clean, upscale, plush, comfortable and quiet. They really pay attention to the details.

Our schedule did not permit time for breakfast; Bill seemed disappointed and I've no doubt we would have enjoyed it. Also, the town of Boalsburg is beautiful, and PSU / State College is only 5 minutes up the road.

We are already planning our next visit to Springfield House and highly recommend it.

Grooms family who booked all 6 rooms at this lovely Inn. Ideal location for our guests at the State College, PA wedding. Innkeepers were fantastic and catered to our every need. The Inn itself was clean, comfortable, beautifully decorated and located in a quiet village with lots of restaurants and shops in walking distance to fill the time between rehearsals, wedding and family visits. The best part was the breakfast...great food and plenty of it. No asparagus and brie Quiche here, plenty of home baked goodies, huge omelets, country bacon and hearty Pennsylvania Dutch specialties. Thanks to the Springfield House for making our special weekend more than special.

We stayed at the Springfield House and enjoyed our time. The owners are very friendly and welcoming, and the accomodations are clean, tastefully decorated and quite comfortable. Future visitors who are frequent B&Bers should be prepared to bring their own "extras" such as board games, music CDs, etc. DVDs are available for no extra charge, and the library contains many titles. During our stay we particularly enjoyed the wine and cheese in the afternoons, and the delicous (and very filling) breakfasts. We would recommend this B&B to anyone.
