Chris & Shannon Lapp purchased this villa in 2006

Why Chris & Shannon Lapp chose Beech Creek

We bought this home as a vacation place for our family. We enjoy spending time with extended family and friends.

What makes this villa unique

Spending time in this beautiful Victorian home is an experience that will take you back in time. Relax and enjoy sitting on the front porch swing, out back in the screened in porch, the slate patio, or the large yard out back.

We also love heading out to the Bald Eagle State Park to take the kids swimming and boating!

Great Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a gymnastics competition for my daughter and decided to rent this house. We were a little worried how the weekend would go with the house being so old, but the bathrooms were new and the kitchen was more than serviceable. We enjoyed our stay in the house and the surroundings were amazing as well. We ventured over to the Bald Eagle State Park for a hike, which was beautiful. All in all, it was a wonderful stay, and the owners were great with keeping in touch! Thanks so much!

Charmingly old home great for large groups

  • 5 of 5

We rented the property for New Years, and everyone loved it! There are plenty of bedrooms, and the third floor is peaceful even if people are active on the ground floor. I was unsure about the age of the house, but it is very well maintained, and people enjoyed exploring the old architecture and antique decor. We will definitely be back!

Fun family weekend

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfect for a family reunion. Plenty of beds for people to sleep. The kids and adults enjoyed exploring the old house. Pool table was a nice surprise. Large table in the dining room was perfect for buffet style dining.

Could use newer labels for light switches. Had to try every combo to figure out how to turn on main chandelier on 2nd floor. Also recommend recycling. Need more lighting for screened in porch.

Shannon was very responsive to our questions. Would stay here again!
