Guestbook comments from the owner
We had an awesome time. The house is great, comfortable, fully stocked kitchen with we utilized!! I love the stone, first order of business when we got in each day was to start a fire. Skiing at 7 Springs couldn't have been better, even for us "old folks" who hadn't been on skin in eight or so odd years. We will definitely be back! Thanks!

I grew up in Confluence, PA but now live in Richmond, VA with my wife Sarah. We love doing all types of outdoor sports, spending time with each other, as well as with my two daughters Kandice and Katie. We travel as often as possible to our home towns which are located in the mountains of Pennsylvania and Virginia. We also love to travel out to the Rockies, in particular the states of Colorado, Wyoming and Utah.

Sarah and Jeff purchased this house in 2000

I grew up in this area and it is a wonderful vacation spot for all seasons. If you are looking for a quiet retreat full of outdoor fun with family or friends, this is the place for you!

Close to all area attractions such as Whitewater Rafting, Ohiopyle State park, 3 Ski Resorts, Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob, Near Flight 93 Memorial and Ft. Necessity.

GREAT LOCATION IN A PEACEFUL TOWN ALONG THE GAP

  • 5 of 5
We had six people in the Dam Yough House for four nights. The owners were very responsive when we had questions prior to arrival. The house was very clean and well-stocked, just as advertised. Everything was in good working order. The neighborhood was very quiet overnight. It was an easy walk into town, and also a short walk/bike ride to the Great Allegheny Passage. The location is fantastic for anyone wanting to experience the GAP; some of the nicest riding on the GAP runs both directions from Confluence. Also, Ohiopyle, and all its activities, are a short drive away (and only about 10 miles by bicycle.) We would definitely stay here again. When you stay here, make sure to dine at least once at the River's Edge Cafe, just a few blocks away.

ANNUAL YOUGH HOUSE TRADITION

  • 5 of 5
This was our third year gathering together with the whole family at the Yough House for our annual summer tradition. As always, the house was in mint condition. The house is well furnished with all of the comforts of home. The home is perfect for early morning trout fishing, biking the trails, boating and swimming at the "beach" in the afternoon, and fires in the beautiful fire pit in the evenings. This location is truely a gem nestled in the Pennsylvania mountains, and we are so grateful to have the opportunity to return year after year for family gatherings and spring trout fishing trips. It is without reservation that we recommend staying at the Yough House for fun and adventure.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! We love when people return year after year because we know that means they have had a great time and enjoyed our house. It also tells us that we have made a comfortable, clean and fun guest house to share with families who want to spend time together in the beautiful Laurel Highland mountains of PA. Thanks again and we will look forward to hosting your next annual family trip!

AMAZING HOME!

  • 5 of 5
This home was more beautiful than I'd ever imagined. It is extremely spacious, and has everything you need to enjoy your stay. I have not one complaint about staying here, I almost regret giving this such a perfect review because I want this place all to myself! But it's only fair to be honest, this was a perfect stay.

GEEZER GET TOGETHER

  • 5 of 5
Our three couple geezer group had an excellent time at the comfortable and well appointed home. There is lots of room, a nice dining area and kitchen and the bedrooms are very comfortable. The whole place was very clean and homey. We spent our time on the bike trail and then relaxing in the pleasant house, cooking and playing cards. This was our second time as renter, and we hope to be back in the future.
