Located in Boalsburg, in central Pennsylvania; Springfield House Inn is only minutes away from State College, PA (home of Penn State University) and two Interstate highways. Choose an early breakfast “to go” and take in the many attractions of this scenic mountain area. You may want to partake in a leisurely full breakfast and then relax on the wrap-around porch of our civil war era B&B. Later, take a stroll in this historic town for some shopping at A Basket Full, The Boalsburg Chocolate Co, Your Perfect Fit, n'V Contemporary Clothing, The Village Square Shop, or Riley on Main or lunch in one of our several cafes.
