Summer Activities in Central PA

There are so many activities in Central PA in the summer, and especially in August.  Our favorite activities this summer are the Bellefonte Arts and Crafts Fair, Penn State Summer Commencement Weekend, Penn State Student Move-In Weekend, and the First Home Football Game of the Season!  The only weekend without a big event this summer is August 16th and 17th. So, if you’re looking for a quiet weekend getaway, make a reservation August 16 and 17.

The Bellefonte Arts and Crafts Fair

This year, the Bellefonte Arts and Crafts Fair takes place Friday, August 2, and Saturday, August 3 in Downtown Bellefonte, PA. Come join us for wonderful exhibits, great food vendors, live musical entertainment, youth artist displays, and much more.  The event takes place on Allegheny and High Streets, right in the heart of Bellefonte.  You’ll be able to duck in some of our local businesses to get cooled off and maybe make some purchases to support our business partners.  You can walk from the Reynolds Mansion Bed and Breakfast right into town to enjoy the fair.  Or, if you’d like to get a ride, there are free shuttles running both days.

Penn State Summer Commencement

If you are visiting Central PA for Penn State Summer Commencement Weekend, there is no better place to stay than the Reynolds Mansion Bed and Breakfast.  You are only nine miles from campus, tucked away in beautiful Victorian Bellefonte, where breakfast is amazing and rooms are immaculate.  The Honors College, Undergraduates, and Graduate School, all have activities planned, times, parking, etc.. posted on their website.  Please either give us a call at 814-353-8407 or email us at for details and reservations.  We’d be happy to accommodate your early breakfast needs.

Penn State Move-In Weekend

This year, students move into Penn State August 23 – 25.  We currently only have one room available for this weekend.  We would like to extend a Penn State Parent discount to parents who stay with us throughout the academic year.  Discounts are not available on football or special event weekends but if you are visiting your son/daughter either during the week or on a non-event weekend, we will gladly discount your room rate.

Penn State Football

The first home football game of the year is one of our favorites!  Everyone is excited to see the team, get to know the players, check out Beaver Stadium, figure out parking, and buy Penn State shirts.  We get to meet new people who hopefully become regular guests.  This year, Penn State is playing the Idaho Vandals.  We only have a few rooms left for this game but the good news is that we do not raise our rates for the first home game.  So, book a room at the Reynolds Mansion Bed and Breakfast for clean, luxurious, comfort and a delicious breakfast.  We hope to see you soon!
