“Elegant, charming, and peaceful getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

I attended a PennDOT conference in Hollidaysburg which lasted 4 days so I had to stay somewhere. Instead of a drab, sterile hotel room, I chose this B&B. I was not sorry! Heather is a lovely host and the scenery and peacefulness of the area brought me back again just for a getaway.

We stayed at the Iron Corbel Inn in April 2011. Everything about it was lovely. The room was spacious. beautifully decorated and comfortable. The rest of the house was inviting and comfortable. the breakfast was delicious. And the host/owner a charming woman.
She gave us good information about the local restaurants. The town is charming and worth sightseeing.
I not only would stay here again, I would go out of my way to route my trip so I could stay here again, even if it is a bit out of the way.

Our room couldn't have been better. It was artfully appointed, clean and beautiful. The house overall was filled with well-chosen antiques. On first glimpse, it was a great place. Initially, our hostess was kind and helpful and very welcoming. She gave us a great tip for a local place to eat dinner, which turned out to be a gem.

So, why, we wondered, did she ruin our breakfast the next morning by trashing many of her previous guests? Over the course of an hour--non-stop? I'm afraid that colored the whole stay for us. I can't even remember whether the homemade breakfast was good or not!

Yikes! That does sound disturbing. Thankfully, the place is under new ownership and.we have very strict rules about not creeping out our guests -- all of whom remember our scrumptious and surprisingly huge full breakfast, made with mostly organic ingredients. Next time you are in Hollidaysburg, please give us another try!

With deep family ties to Hollidaysburg, I've stayed twice at the Iron Corbel Inn for various family get-togethers. I love the location,. Being able to walk around town is fun. The Inn itself is comfortable with nice bedding and relaxed atmosphere. Breakfasts are delicious (love the scones). I highly recommend it for business or pleasure. Will definitely stay here again the next time I am able to visit Hollidaysburg.

Room Tip: tthird floor rooms are very spacious-more like suites. Recommend if staying more than 1 night

we just loved our stay at Iron Corbel Bed & Breakfast. Beautifully decorated with antiques & finds, the B&B was spacious, welcoming and comfortable. Wonderful sitting areas in large glass window or cozy nooks wrapped in rich fabrics and pillows - Iron Corbel had it all.The bedroom was a mix of comforting favorite furniture mixed with top quality bedding - perfect for a break from our busy life. And, an easy walk into the downtown historic district.

I was stopping in the Altoona area, and was plesantly suprised by my stay at the Iron corbel inn. It was beautifully decorated in a great quaint town. Wish I could've stayed longer.

If you need to stop in or around Altoona, consider staying in Hollidaysburg, which is a real time capsule. Not much seems to have changed here since 1860. It's a charming town with tons of 19th Century houses. The Iron Corbel Inn is housed in one of the grandest of these gorgeous homes. The surrounding neighborhood is lovely and great for a nice stroll. We stayed only one night at the inn and found the hotel lovely and interesting. The innkeeper is a chef, who kindly accommodated our request for an early breakfast. Everything was homemade, even the scones. It was delicious!
