Carnegie Inn and Spa

Activities In & Around State College

As the first and only State College AAA Four-Diamond hotel in State College, Carnegie House features the comforts, charm and warmth of a European luxury resort.

Get lost in the enchanting surroundings; our wisteria-draped patio overlooks the 17th green of the picturesque Toftrees Golf Course. With only 20 beautifully appointed rooms and suites, we can take the time to get to know each guest and personalize our approach accordingly.
