Short-term rentals are permitted in the R-4 residential and all commercial zoning districts of Bellefonte Borough. Only short-term rentals in the R-1 and R-2 residential zoning district that operated as such prior to January 1, 2023 may continue to operate as a pre-existing nonconforming use, so long as the required permits are obtained.
You can find a zoning map of current zoning districts here.

- Read the Bellefonte Borough Short-Term Rental Ordinance.
- Apply for a new short-term rental in the R-4 or commercial zoning district.
