Pittsburgh House Rental Photos and Description
3 Bedrooms 2 Full bathrooms with showers, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 6 comfortably
If your taste is more jukebox than Victrola? More poodle skirt than parasol? Then America's First Nostalgic Guesthouse, The Good Ol' Days House is for you. Relax during your stay in a home where the 1950s, 60s and 70s come alive. This recently restored & renovated family home is filled with authentic treasures that bring you back to the decades of America's past with its Nifty 50s Kitchen, an art deco style 1940s Dining Room, a living room in 'mod' 1960s decor, retro 70s bedrooms, and full basement with a Knotty Pine built in bar right out of the 50s along with vintage Pinball and Bowling machines. Take a step back in time with family and friends as you celebrate important milestones such as birthdays, anniversaries, family & class reunions or just a weekend getaway to go back to a simpler time and remember those Good Ol' Days.
**The GOOD OL' DAY HOUSE was just featured on the television show WQEDs 'PITTSBURGH 360' on April 18, 2013! You can download the show from WQEDs website.

MELANIE PATTERSON purchased this house in 2008
Why MELANIE PATTERSON chose Pittsburgh
There is nothing like this anywhere. The house has been featured with Dave Crawley (KDKA & WQED Reporter) on WQED PITTSBURGH 360 where he has described the house as a 'time machine' taking you to decades of the 1950s, 60s, 70s & 80s. It is truly an experience for all generations...hope you remember how to percolate coffee, fill up ice cube trays, and operate and 8 track tape player...and we have WiFi available too -- just in case you need to stick around in this century too.
What makes this house unique
A free trip down memory lane with working Rotary phones, percolated coffee, stereos, LPs, 45s, eight track tape player, 1975 Pinball machine, Ms Pacman Tabletop game, vintage board games, polyester suit & bellbottoms in the boys' bedroom, Brownie outfit & 1950s Prom Dress in the girls' room, and lots of nostalgic experiences with family & friends that will truly be stored in your memory bank for future withdrawels. Shop in an old fashioned street filled with Antique shops, Boutiques, Bakery, Grocery store, Taverns & Churches & a Parochial school (that I attended as a child).
Guestbook comments from the owner
We've just spent an amazing week in your beautiful home. Thank you for opening the doors to the past -- your home unlocked memories that we will treasure for years to come. You are a warm and caring person and your love of live and family fills each room of this dear home. Being a child of the 50s, raised in a Polish Catholic Family, I just 'connected' with so many things in here. I truly felt as if I'd come home. Thank you so much for the treats, breakfast, you are very thoughtful. We wish you and your family all the best. Thanks for the Memories! With warmest regards and heartfelt appreciation.
