Built in 1885 as a home for the EBT’s superintendent, this B&B is across Meadow Street from the roundhouse and across Iron Street from the station. It’s been operated for the past 15 years by longtime EBT employee David Brightbill and his wife, Cindy. Summer nights on the side porch are especially enjoyable.

Previously owned by a Friends of the EBT volunteer, this comfortable four-bedroom, two-bath house is now an Airbnb property with views of the EBT main. It’s about a three-minute walk from the station — and much of the original scheming for what became the EBT Foundation took place at its dinner table and in its kitchen.

This striking Victorian house in downtown Huntingdon has a railroad connection — it was built for the superintendent of the Huntingdon & Broad Top Mountain Railroad, which served mines on the west and north sides of the Broad Top. The house became a seven-bedroom luxury B&B in 2014, and the innkeeper has culinary-academy training.

Railfans may want to ask for a room on the river side of the building, where it’s easy to hear trains on Norfolk Southern’s Pittsburgh Line whistling for the 4th Street grade crossing.
