…The Station Inn. A Better Way to Railfan… 814-886-4757
Twelve years after the PRR reached Cresson, The Callan House opened for business. J. Edgar Thomson built the railroad, ran the railroad, and steered the PRR’s early growth. As the PRR prospered, so too did Tom Callan’s hotel. Things were busy here, with dozens of passenger trains stopping right across the street. Over a hundred freights pounded by daily!
But things change. The Callan House is now The Station Inn. The passenger station is gone. A lone Amtrak breezes through at 65 MPH. Freights number about 70. These are long trains, with straining helpers. You can watch from our front porch or from dozens of nearby locations that are on public property .
Station Inn rooms are simple, spotless, and bright. Breakfast is included in your room rate.
We consistently meet the expectations of visiting rail enthusiasts. However, Cresson’s small town setting, and The Inn’s relaxed atmosphere, may not be a good fit for some B&B travelers. Please read our Reservation Policy and view our Youtube clip at the top right of this page before reserving a room at The Inn.
Summing up: The Inn is Local, Authentic, Independent, Friendly, Organic, and Unique. Stop by.
Relax in an old Callan rocker and watch the trains from our front porch.
NOTE: The Inn is unable to accommodate children under the age of eight. We can help you find a kennel in Cresson to board your pets. See our RESERVATION POLICY for details about children, pets and smoking.
