About Us

Windows to the Past Guest House is a one of a kind 1870 Victorian home.  This post Civil War home will certainly remind you of what life truly was like during the Lincoln Era.  The ornant French Doors, the wooden celing, and the amazing stained glass will make you marvel at the dedication of craftmanship from this long lost era.

Years of Hosting & Innkeeping


My name is Walt Chorle.  I have ten years of experience owning the Centennial Rose Bed & Breakfast along with the several years here renovating and establishing this unique lodging option near Happy Valley.  I also have ten years working in professional sports and five years ushering locally for PSU Athletics, the Bryce Jordan Center, and the State College Spikes!  Tourism is a special interest that I can share with our guests.
