My first visit to the Carnegie Inn and Spa was for a business trip. The accommodations were awesome - so comfortable and clean! The staff were all awesome and really went the extra mile to make sure the guests were accommodated. The food at the restaurant was delicious.

Paul's artistry as a chef is unparalleled. Don't wait for some "special " occasion to savor the culinary treats that Paul has up his sleeve. Four different diners and choices recently, including one vegan. Drinks on the patio was a lovely start. Each meal was fabulously presented on different complimenting dinnerware by our attentive server. Don't hesitate to ask bar... More

My husband and I decided to book a room for the weekend and were very impressed with the room, the service, the food, and the spa. We had dinner the first night and it was delicious. We ate on the patio overlooking the garden and the golf course. The complimentary breakfast was also very good. The room and bathroom was... More

Carnegie Inn & Spa definitely turned out to be an unexpectedly memorable and unique get-away experience. We loved the serenity and quiet atmosphere, both inside and out. The decor suited our tastes perfectly--from the beautiful library, dining room and sitting areas to the covered verandas and our spacious king room (also complete with small sofa and easy chair for relaxing)....

The Carnegie is a GREAT place to stay! The Inn has a very warm, charming feel to it. Lots of nice sitting areas both inside and out. The grounds are very pretty, the rooms are spacious and clean and the service is excellent. It's a great value (full breakfast included) and I will definitely be back.

The beautiful building sits on a lovely wooded lot and that is just what you notice from the outside. Once you step through the doors the experience begins. Freshly baked cookies greet you in your well decorated spacious room. The dinner is absolutely delectable and dessert is divine. With a staff that truly goes above and beyond.

During my last trip to State College, as a gathering of old friends sat around on a porch in Boalsburg, an old friend who has seen much of the world said: "Why is it so hard to get a decent meal here or to find a nice place to stay?" Those two questions go to the heart of why the... More

Great day spa. Employees very nice and treatments are great. I have had manicures, pedicures, facials and massages. The full day experience with lunch and champagne is a great escape. The restaurant attached is a great way to continue relaxing after your services.
