Arch Spring Farm Bed & Breakfast consists of the "Manor House" and the "Mill House" and is located in Sinking Valley, near Spruce Creek, about 25 miles west of State College. There are two 19th century stone houses on the property. Each is rented as a complete unit (not by the room). The Manor House is more formal and sleeps 8 in 4 bedrooms (3 queen, 1 full), 4 1/2 bathrooms, a working fireplace and central a/c. The Mill House is more rustic/country and sleeps 6 in 3 BR (1 queen, 1 full and pair of twin beds), 2 bathrooms, wood burner stove and 2 window a/c units. Both have serve-your-own continental breakfast provided; full modern kitchen is available for guest use.
Arch Spring Farm is a popular B&B destination for couples who are fans of Penn State football, friends who like to fly fish in the nearby trout streams, and family groups who enjoy the privacy of having a house furnished with antiques for reunions.
There are hiking trails in the mountains of the private property for use by B&B guests. A popular walk is to the natural bridge which gives Arch Spring its name. The yard around the Manor House has some interesting buildings: the "fort," an old ice house and a scale once used to weigh wagons of grain. Cross the footbridge behind the Mill House to see foundations left from the village of Arch Spring. Down the road are Amish families who sell fresh garden produce, flowers, chairs, baked goods and quilts. Amish buggies pass by the house from time to time; Canada geese and other birds drink from the stream behind the Mill House; deer may enter the crop fields at dusk. Ft. Roberdeau, a reconstructed Revolutionary War compound, is a few miles away, near the Sinking Valley Country Club. Spring Lane Hunt Club arranges a variety of game bird hunts. The Manor House has a DVD player, WiFi and satellite TV reception; the Mill House has a DVD player but no TV reception. No pets or smoking inside either house please.
