Overview

Guests loved the charming, quiet atmosphere
Not many on-site amenities
Located along the Frankstown Branch of the Juniata River among the mountains in serene south-central Pennsylvania, Edgewater Inn & Riverside Grill was originally built as a farmhouse in 1762 by John Penn, the grandson of William Penn. Later, the 20-room Inn was added to the property, along with a restaurant and bar that receive high praise from guests. Visitors also were fond of the picturesque grounds, saying they made a great playground for kids and were also ideal for couples who wanted to snuggle by the river. Travelers do say that the rooms are small, but are well-appointed and kept very clean. Plus, overnight guests receive a complimentary breakfast in the morning. This property is also a popular choice for weddings, as couples can choose to marry in the Edgewater Barn, the restaurant, or on the front lawn with a tent. Some even suggest this property for a Penn State football game as a great alternative to the State College hotels that double their rates and require two-night minimum stays. The University Park campus is about 25 miles north.
