We had a wonderful stay at Big Hollow. The house is beautiful and well kept. The patio and gardens are a little piece of heaven. Proprietors Marge and Bob are lovely people who made sure our stay was just perfect. This place is a rare find and we highly recommend! ~Kathy H.

We stayed at Big Hollow last weekend by sheer luck while we moved our son into Penn State for his freshman year, as we booked late & was one of 2 hotels that had had availability - From the moment we entered their beautiful house we were made to feel right at home by owners Marge & Bob Means.

First time staying at a B&B and could not have been any happier. The grounds, the home,the host and hostess could not have been any better. My husband didn't want to leave. We will definitely return. If you want comfort and beauty then this is the place to go.

After reading previous reviews, my husband and I decided to spend a get-a-way night at this lovely B&B. It is just a few miles outside of State College and hidden away in a very private setting. The owners are delightful and the rooms and common areas are clean, comfortable and beautiful. We especially liked the big patio and fireplace where... More

My husband and I are moving to State College and had never been to the area before. Staying at the Big Hollow B&B was the perfect choice. It was an easy drive from the airport which was helpful after coming in on a late night flight. The owners are incredible and made us feel welcomed immediately. They were extremely helpful... More

My wife and I stayed at the Big Hollow B&B over Memorial Day and it is very nice. We stayed in the Lavender room. Overall the entire B&B was very clean, the breakfast was very good, the proprieters are wonderful, and the grounds are beautiful. This is a 3 room inn shared with the owners, but there is plenty of... More

We had the privilege of staying at the Big Hollow B&B in early November for a Penn State football weekend. Other family members had stayed here previously with rave reviews so our expectations were already at a high-level. Those expectations were surpassed. The accomodations were superb. The home was beautiful and our room had everything we needed for a comfortable... More

What a wonderful stay! The owners are at once kind and neighborly, and absolutely professional. My wife and I really enjoyed this place - great attention to detail applied to an excellent design and execution. Examples include heated towel bars, petit fours on the pillows, and very well appointed rooms (we had the Hydrangea Suite), sitting room, study (with complimentary... More

Even if you have no interest in college football and are not at Penn State for a game - try this wonderful B&B. The owners, Bob and Marge have built a beautiful home in the country - you feel you are deep in the woods but you are 10 minutes from Penn State campus. Their bedrooms are beautiful, in fact...
