A State College Pennsylvania Bed and Breakfast

Welcome to Bed & Breakfast at The Rock Garden, your home away from home in central Pennsylvania. Convenient to the PSU campus and college activities, it is an ideal place to stay while visiting family and friends. Whether cheering on Penn State or simply enjoying the activities this area has to offer, our B&B provides the perfect location.

Located at the base of Mt. Nittany just north of historic Boalsburg our farmhouse style home sits on 17 acres in the village of Oak Hall. Providing all the amenities of today's busy world, we are refreshingly different from the typical hotel or motel. Beautiful lawns and colorful perennial gardens surround the Inn and create a wonderful setting for our guests. 

Construction of the B&B was completed in 2005 with safety features that sit quietly in the background and allow for complete relaxation in a beautiful country setting. Mt. Nittany and the Tussey Mountain range provide a backdrop of wonderful views to enjoy from every window. All five guest rooms have private baths and are unique in their decor and style. Every guest can be accommodated with queen size beds in four of our rooms and two twin beds in our first floor fully ADA compliant room. A hearty hot breakfast is served each morning in the formal dining room. Relax with your morning coffee or tea, a good book or fine conversation on the wraparound porch or courtyard. In warmer weather you can unwind in the gardens while enjoying the fragrance of the flowers and a view of the Centre County landmark, Mt. Nittany. Make yourself cozy in colder weather in the garden room or in the front of the wood fireplace in the great room.

The PENN STATE UNIVERSITY is just a short drive away, making the Bed and Breakfast ideal if you are in town to visit PSU or enjoy any of its sporting events. Beaver stadium, Bryce Jordan Center, Pegula Ice Arena are just 10 minutes away. Or head downtown, STATE COLLEGE to enjoy a show at the STATE COLLEGE THEATRE, shop for memorabilia, or dine at one of the fine restaurants. Sports bars, microbreweries and wineries can also be found in the immediate Centre Region.

Let us make your stay in Happy Valley memorable.
