Nestled in the Allegheny Mountains of Central Pennsylvania in a region known as Morrisons Cove, Sunhearth Trails Bed & Breakfast offers pet friendly lodging that is an elegant alternative to pet boarding or a chain hotel/motel. We feature warm hospitality and amenities such as spacious grounds, laundry service, wireless internet and complimentary breakfast.

Sunhearth Trails Bed  & Breakfast is located 1.1 mile South of Roaring Spring, in Taylor Township, Blair County, Pennsylvania, on Route 867 South, a short drive away from Altoona and Bedford.

The 5.5 acre property faces Halter Creek. There is a rustic trail down to the creek and much wild flora to explore.

The property was originally part of the Walter & Helen Martin property. Some local history was made here by Walter and his son Michael who crafted stringed instruments, including the very famous Lorraine Lee dulcimer.

The property consists of 2 houses:


The California style cabin (not for rent),

This is a little review, very sweetly written by a guest of ours,  Ken R. Abell, whom calls himself, "...a rake, a rambler, and a teller of tales who understands that there is strength in a story well told and well lived.".  
An amazing writer with a special gift for revealing the mood of a local.
