“"The Queen," The House of my Dreams!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

My husband and I discovered this gem almost ten years ago, when our newly married daughter and son-in-law lived in Bellefonte and didn't have a guest room fixed-up yet. We looked for a B&B and discovered "The Queen." We were welcomed warmly by Nancy. She proudly showed us the treasure of a home she and Curt had painstakingly restored. Since I love old restored homes furnished with period decor, I immediately fell in love with this beautiful homey B&B. We stayed in Anne's Room the first time -- a tasteful, luxurious room. After eating Nancy's absolutely delicious gourmet breakfast served in the gorgeous dining room, we knew we would have to return. Since then, we have stayed in the Governor's Suite numerous times. We simply love that room, as there is an inviting little sitting room with two comfy upholstered chairs, complete with a gas fireplace, in the attached turret off the bedroom. We have often commented, we would die to spend a snowy winter's night up in that cozy warm turret. The Governor's Suite is decorated with a fisherman's theme my husband especially admires, but which is classy enough for me to feel very attracted to it, too. Recently, we spent several days in The Maid's Quarters, an apartment complete with fully equipped kitchen, dining area, sitting room, bath and, of course, the lovely bedroom. Among the numerous attractions Bellefonte has to offer, my husband discovered early on an idyllic trout stream only blocks from The Queen. Curt, also a fisherman, often graciously gives him tips on other locations he might try. Even though our children lived in Bellefonte for only a few years, whenever my husband and I need to get away for a few days, The Queen beckons!

Room Tip: The Governor's Room is especially good if you want to curl up and read. Relax in a warm bath in...

Thanks so much for your glowing history of your numerous stays here at The Queen. And especially thanks for bearing with us as we transitioned to our new Mitsubishi individual room air system. I've promised myself that I will spend a snowy night in that turret myself. Hope you and your very special husband can too.

From the moment you enter the "home" your are welcomed with warmth and surrounded with "love". The Parlor is an adults playland with a working victrola and records and a player piano. Many other "toys" . I stayed in Anne's room SIGH. slipper tub -- luxurious. sheets like slipping between silk. Oh and the steps to get into the High Bed. Lounging area in the room with a fire place. Breakfast, fresh flowers on the table, music, coffee and juice as you enter the dining room. First time I ever had eggs benedict. YUM. Fresh strawberries in sweet cream. So pampered, so cared about, so spoiled. oh spoiled spoiled spoiled. Definitely will return not only for my business trips but just for get aways. If you are going to State College for a reason stay here -- only a hope skip and a jump to the campus. Thank you so much.

Thank you for being such a great host to me and Cindy on Valentine's Day. Your Victorian home was wonderful, our suite of rooms with the fireplace & reading room in the turret was excellent, and the Eggs Benedict were fantastic. Historic Bellefonte is one of the best of Centre County's many underrated treasures, as are you and your B&B.

We love The Queen and stay here every time we come through PA. It's a lovely Victorian in a quiet, safe, charming neighborhood in an historic town tucked into mountains. Super comfy beds (with the softest sheets imaginable), yummy breakfasts, pet friendly (one room) and run by a lovely, caring couple who go out of their way to make you feel welcome and pampered. All kinds of fun collections -- antiques everywhere -- bee hives out back that put honey on the table...and every amenity you'd expect to find at a fine, 5-star hotel. We love this place!

While attending the annual Center County Arts Festival in State College, we decided to stay in nearby Bellefonte. Bellefonte has many charming Victorian houses and much history...the Queen stands proud among them. Food was great, decor was busy and tastefully done...could spend a whole day exploring the vast collection of curiosities, service was pleasant. Only complaint is that the price was a bit high.

Thanks for taking time to write a review for us. Hope you will be able to join us again this year. Unlike the hotels in State College, we do not raise our rates for events like the Arts
Festival. We just checked and most hotels are charging as much or more as The Queen and do not offer FREE WI-fi, formal gourmet breakfast, patio dining by the gardens,or 24 hour FREE access to unlimited coffee, tea, soda,and bottled water. Some even charge extra for parking.

I stayed for five days at The Queen due to a medical emergency with my daughter who is a post doc at Penn State. Nancy was so welcoming and understanding. The room was beautiful and comforting to me after I returned from a day of medical attention and organization for my daughter. We are well on the way to recovery now and I hope I can stay at The Queen again to really enjoy the full Bed &Breakfast experience I saw them provide to other guests. It is a beautiful home on a street of beautiful homes in a very beautiful town where everyone is so friendly and caring.
