Lodging in the Area

Note: If you plan to attend the Fall Spectacular, be aware Penn State's homecoming often coinsides with it, booking up lodging for hundreds of miles around.

Effective June 2010 I have removed the lodging listing here and refence the listing on the Friends of the East Broad Top site, which is more complete and up to date.
