The Cooke Tavern Bed and Breakfast is a beautifully restored 1808 Georgian style brick house located in Historic Penn Hall. Built in 1808 by James Cooke, this magnificent home, was once a tavern and inn for Colonial travelers. Your hosts Greg and Mary Kay Williams spent five years returning this home to its original grandeur making it once again a favorite resting stop for travelers. In 1995, they were honored with the Centre County Historical Society's "Excellence in Historic Preservation Award".
The bed and breakfast boasts a spectacular three-story open winding staircase, seven fireplaces, eleven foot ceilings, original locks and hardware, wide pine floors, interesting architectural woodwork, and beautifully decorated, hand-painted stenciled rooms.
The Cooke Tavern offers a choice of three spacious rooms. Two rooms are 17 x 17 feet (North/South ballroom) and are separated by large French doors, they once served as the Tavern's ballroom. The Cherub Room (10 x 17 feet) boasts spectacular views of the property. Each room shares 2 full baths. One bathroom was designed after the Roman-Irish baths and offers a two-person Jacuzzi tub.
Enjoy a gourmet candlelight breakfast in the formal dining room or on the Williamsburg-style patio. In keeping with the Tavern's tradition, a nightly cordial will be offered.
The Cooke Tavern Bed and Breakfast is located just 25 minutes from Penn State University and many other wonderful Centre County attractions. It is situated on 40 acres, so you can enjoy a country walk to famous Penns Creek to fish, feed the ducks or just relax.
