Welcome to the Pennsylvania Wilds! Spend the night in a little clearing in our 60 acre wood. We use only dark sky lights so the stars are in full bloom. Chickens run free, laundry hangs on the line, and your private room provides a quiet haven. Perfect for travellers (5 miles from I-80), Penn State fans, outdoor enthusiasts, or a couple's retreat. We are also a bed-and-breakfast, so a full menu is included. Options rotate but include homemade yogurt, baking soda biscuits, crepes, and fresh eggs
“We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Holly and Cody, and wished we had more time to spend a few more nights in this little piece of Heaven 😊. The directions Holly gave were very helpful and made finding it easy, even though we arrived after dark and the flexible check in time worked great for us. They have really gone above and beyond to make sure their guests have EVERYTHING they may need, and the entire basement space was open to us. The bedroom and bath were both Immaculately clean and the delicious breakfast topped it off. We’ll definitely plan to stay again when we travel back to Snow Shoe, from Louisiana. It was truly an amazing experience.”
A writer’s retreat, an outdoor lover’s paradise, a family escape, a beautiful reunion of friends, a nature-filled getaway with rafts and kayak included-- all within an easy drive to State College & Penn State! Approximately 50 minutes to Dubois and a little over an hour to Altoona
“The pictures sure don't lie! Its beautiful. We went with 4 people and it was perfect, but there was definitely room to sleep more. It was very spacious and the beds were AMAZING. My girlfriend and I sometimes dread staying placed for 4 nights but seriously the beds and pillows made it hard to get up in the morning! 100% would recommend. Close to a lot of thing (respectively speaking due to the area most drives are 30mins) and the neighbors were a delight! Met a few of them and it felt like a safe community in the middle of a beautiful nowhere.”

“I chose The Snow Shoe House for its proximity to PSU. My family was visiting my son for Parents Weekend. The house is 30 minutes from campus. The neighborhood is quiet and the house is lovely. Deb is an amazing host. Her unique hospitality made our visit feel extra special and right at home. With fresh muffins and breakfast/snack goodies in the kitchen and anything we may have forgotten in the bathroom we enjoyed our stay. The beds are all comfortable as well as the living room furniture. The table is large enough to fit 6 people comfortably. Definitely the perfect fit for us and we hope to return.”
