My husband and I were born and raised in the area and when this home came on the market in the summer of 2011 we realized what a great place it would be for vacationers to enjoy when visiting our area. We especially wanted to make it a home that families could feel comfortable using. With two small children we understand the challenges of traveling with kids and we hope that you find our home to be a great place to bring the kids so everyone can have a vacation.

Megan Barlow purchased this house in 2011

This property is in a small village that at one time was a mining town. With the mine closed, it now has only a handful of homes. It is creekside to a small stream that runs from the mountains and is great for trout fishing. The house itself is close to Route 40 so you are far enough away from the hustle and bustle but not too far from the amenities that come with populated areas. It is a home for all seasons and close to all the activities but in a more secluded setting. We have renovated the home so it has modern conveniences but still retains its charm.

We hope your stay will be relaxing and enjoyable. We have tried to make the house comfortable and we promise it will be clean. We have bed bug covers on all beds and pillows. We want you to feel comfortable bringing your family and want to take some of the stress away by offering this complete home.

GREAT HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
I've rented plenty of houses on VRBO but this one exceeded them all! Not only was the house charming (your photos don't do it justice) but the owners went out of the way to provide "extras" to make our stay enjoyable. From the coffee in the freezer to the makings for s'mores in the pantry to wood for the fire pit and extra toothbrushes in case we forgot ours -- this home was delightful. My family and friends will be back again and again. Thanks for such wonderful hospitality!

A REAL GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely place to stay! We found it peaceful-very quiet at night and day-yet close to everything we wanted to do. Everything was perfect-from the kitchen (hooray for the dishwasher!) to the spotless bathrooms. The house was very roomy-much bigger then I thought it would be. Fallingwater, Ohiopyle, Laurel Hills State Park, Yough River Lake, and even Kennywood were within decent driving distance. We enjoyed the donuts at Sweeties in Confluence and some great pizza at the pizza place next door. Lots of covered bridges are also in the area and worth seeing. Bicycles are a must for the Great Allegheny Passage, which is less then 3 miles from the house. I would definitely recommend staying here! My family loved it!

LOVELY VACATION SPOT

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful home in a beautiful setting! Lovely furnishings, well stocked kitchen, linens, games, books, and so on. We got to experience the fall colors right outside our door with walks up the road as well as at the tower on Mt. Davis. We enjoyed lots of s'mores at the backyard fire pit. We had one small problem that was taken care of in a timely manner. I would return for another visit as well as recommend it to friends.

Drives of 40 minutes will take you to Somerset and an abundance of sites and activities including the Flight 93 Memorial, Quecreek Rescue Site, and Mountain Playhouse.
