Allegheny Street Bed & Breakfast
In the heart of Hollidaysburg's historic district
703 Allegheny St, Hollidaysburg,PA. 814-317-9777
Our B&B stands in the center of the Hollidaysburg Historic District, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The town was the terminus of the Allegheny-Portage Railroad, which closed in 1857. Beautiful, stately, well-preserved homes line Allegheny Street. The downtown has a number of fine restaurants, cozy cafes & small boutiques. It is five miles from Altoona, six miles from Canoe Creek State Park, and 40 miles from State College.
Each of our six rooms has a distinct character. None has a TV, but each gets a strong wi-fi signal. Every room is clean and elegant, with a private bath stocked with plush towels and bathrobes. There are no great luxuries here: no jacuzzi, no pool and no sauna. But it is quiet, comfortable and friendly.
Our breakfast is the best available in the area, made with mostly organic ingredients. We offer fresh organic eggs, turkey bacon and coldcuts, fresh fruit, yoghurts, cheeses, salmon, Irish porridge and a variety of cereals. We also serve various teas and high-quality Quartermaine coffee.
Fast, Free Wifi
We don't have televisions here, but we do have very fast Wifi, thanks to a direct fiber-optic connection. Many special spots, inside and out, for reading, writing or conversing with friends & family.
Clean, hypoallergenic environment
We don't use harsh cleaning chemicals or fragrances. We don't allow smoking anywhere on the property. If you smoke, this probably isn't the right place for you. Sorry, but we don't allow pets, either, and we cannot make exceptions.
Special diet? No problem!
We cater to any and all special dietary needs and preferences, providing gluten free, ketogenic and vegetarian breakfasts at no extra charge. What you won't find are processed foods. We also don't serve pork or beef.
Musical instruments to play
Many mountain dulcimers, a Taylor acoustic guitar, several Hungarian citeras, a Swedish nyckelharpa, an épinette des Vosges, a variety of zithers, a baby grand piano (tuned 1/2 step down), and more!
We're well-travelled, we're multilingual, and we love good books
We speak English, French, Hindi and Mandarin Chinese. After spending years working overseas, we respect the needs of travelers. We maintain a pretty decent library, too.
Arriving by bike or train?
We offer a 20% first-night discount to guests arriving by train at Altoona Amtrak station. We'll pick you up and drop you off free of charge. The same discount applies to guests arriving by bicycle. Just let us know when you book!
