“Return Visitor, Second House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

Due to the excellence of the innkeeper and the popularity of the inn, calling at the last minute may prevent you from staying in the main house; no problem, Paul has a perfect solution, a second house, not as historical, not with the same character, but close enough to enjoy in the excellent breakfast and festivities available at the main house.

The second house is a classic two-story home, beautiful grounds and all the necessities of home. We stayed in the master suite, a great king size bed and private bath. As to the main house, Paul continues to do wonders, establishing a new garden and fire pit for evening conversation accompanied with a glass of wine. Paul also continues to amaze with his excellent offerings for breakfast.

We already booked our next stay knowing that it is going to get harder to get reservations on short notice.

My husband and I along with his parents had the pleasure of staying at Stony Point B & B on May 25. We were in the area for the Grier School's graduation ceremonies. The first accolade I can say is its proximity to Birmingham where the school is. That really cut down on driving which would have been either State College or Altoona.

Secondly, Paul, our host, made us feel most welcome in this old yet beautifully appointed mansion. The AC was great, the breakfast wonderful, and every need was met.

I made our reservations in February, and I was glad I did. It's a great respite.

While on a recent trip to PA, we had the chance to visit the Stony Point B&B for the first time. The setting is beautiful, the house steeped in history, and Paul's hospitality unparalleled. He took us on a tour of the entire house, top to bottom, and was excited to share the history of the home with us. His pride in the 1920s house is evident in every way -- the upkeep of the home, the furnishings, the food, and the welcoming atmosphere. Tyrone is fortunate to have Paul as a member of the community.

My son and his wife and my husband and I spent a delightful night at this unusual B&B in scenic western PA as we attended the graduation of our granddaughter from The Grier School. The bathroom was beautifully equipped with every imaginable item plus plenty of fluffy towels. The beds (queen size) were supremely comfortable and since it was a hot weekend, the air conditioned bedrooms were most welcome. But the most impressive aspect were the gorgeous period furnishings in every room. The lovely stone house was built in the '20s on a hillside overlooking the town and is an impressive sight as you approach. Paul, our host, welcomed us as we arrived and served a most delicious breakfast next morning consisting of fresh fruit, yogurts, crisp bacon, a hearty eggplant, chicken frittata and mouthwatering homemade bread. This place is a treasure!

My daughter tried to make reservations but it was full. When my wife and I were in Tyrone we stopped by to see it with friends. Paul took us on a tour of the house...let us sample his breakfast...even though we weren't paying customers. Absolutely beautiful from top to bottom. On the edge of town...lots of walking trails, easy walk to the town center. Make reservations early. Paul is THE BEST!

Room Tip: I would love to try them all.

Kathy and I could not have asked for a better place than Stony Point Bed & Breakfast or for a better host than Paul! We were late in making reservations and the main house was full, but without hesitation Paul offered a room at his residential property and we had the house to ourselves. Breakfasts were great. Paul is a gracious hosts. The other guests were wonderful to meet. This is the place to stay when visiting Tyrone, Pa.!

From my first step into Stony Point B&B, I was in awe. Paul makes everyone feel very welcome and right at home. The house was exceptionally clean and the breakfasts were delicious with great tasting coffee. We were made to feel very welcomed along with our family who lives in the area. The evenings were relaxing with wine, etc. on the outside screened porch. Nice touch.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
STONY POINT.......so well built the original plaster completely covers the walls and ceilings. So well engineered by the Pennsylvania Railroad engineers and Stone masons that the hillside and house have stayed locked in place for nearly a century. The house sits in a hillside "cut" stabilized by deep stone foundations. In the early 20TH century as the Pennsylvania Railroad made the switch to steel freight cars the Italian and Irish immigrant workers of Tyrone dismantled the cars and constructed the floor beams that half the house rests upon. The old PRR stenciling is still visible spanning several decades as evidenced by the changing font and type styles. Numerous engineering and freight terms appear throughout the basement beams. Examples include: "Westinghouse air brake" "capacity" "drake gear" "coupler" and of course "Pennsylvania" as well as multiple freight car numbers. The unusual preponderance of Keystones (16) in the home also lend credence to Stony Point Bed and Breakfasts description as a "marriage between a reserved corporate aesthetic and 1920 high upper middle class tastes. ... more   less
