Stahlstown House Rental Photos and Description

Country House in the Mountains

Come visit our little piece of Heaven in a relaxing location a midst the trees and mountains. Mt. Bliss has 3 Bedrooms and 3 full baths with accommodations for 12 guests. The kitchen is fully stocked for all your needs be it pancakes or a gourmet dinner with plenty of eating space in the kitchen and breakfast room along with a formal dining room for the gourmet dinners!! And, if you would like a personal chef to prepare those gourmet dinners for you, we can arrange any level of culinary service you would prefer. The living room has a floor to ceiling, stone, wood burning fireplace and is a great place to settle in to read that book you've been saving for this time away from your normal routine. A loft overlooks the two story living room where you can utilize the office set up with a computer if you choose to connect with the outside world. The master bedroom is spacious with a king size bed and complimented with a large jetted bathtub in the master bathroom. There's another stone, wood burning fireplace in the game room that has a pool table that converts to table tennis and a 42' flat screen TV mounted above the fireplace. Probably the most inviting feature of our house during the summer is our beautiful pool which we just had heated so no more sticking in the big toe to see how cold the water is! It is open from mid-May to mid-September. There's nothing like swimming in the middle of 9 acres with nobody around. We have a combination charcoal/gas grill on the large deck that surrounds the pool. To top it off, there lots of outdoor games in addition to all the games provided indoors! We set up an official volleyball court and there's more than enough room to play croquet, kick ball and whatever other games your family enjoys. Also, have fun roasting marshmallows by the fire pit while watching a spectacular sunset you'll never forget!

Winter time in the Laurel Highlands is magical as well. But remember to bring your 4-wheel drive vehicle because it's impossible to get all the way up our driveway in the snow and ice. Seven Springs and Hidden Valley are just 30 minutes away. The roads to these resorts are well plowed so other than our driveway, it's very easy to get around!

You can spend all your time enjoying Mt. Bliss or you can venture out to experience the many activities just minutes away. We have provided an informational binder with brochures for your convenience which includes golf courses, Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob, wineries, antique shops, the boutiques and restaurants around the Ligonier Diamond, and the kids will love Living Treasures Animal Park and Idylwild Park with it's water park as well as Seven Springs with its year round activities. Also, you can venture into Pittsburgh which is only 45 minutes away. There's so much to do, you'll have to come back!

Keywords: Family vacation home, spectacular mountain views, game room with pool table, well equipped and expansive kitchen, swimming pool, washer/dryer, great for all seasons, large open field with fenced pasture in a secluded setting.

About Owner/Manager

Frank and Amy got married in 2008 after knowing each other for 30 years. We both have roots in the Pittsburgh area so when we found Mt. Bliss, we knew we would be very happy here.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2010

Why Owner/Manager chose Stahlstown

The Laurel Highlands is full of activity all year round. Amy grew up learning how to ski at Seven Springs and spending time during the summer visiting with friends with vacation homes. Now in addition to Fort Ligonier and Idylwild Park, there's a water park, many wineries, many more antique shops and wonderful restaurants.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with every aspect of Mt. Bliss; the views, the privacy, the pool, the location. There's nothing about Mt. Bliss not to like except for our driveway in the snow- it's a bit of a challenge, but even that's fun! We do suggest you bring a 4-wheel drive vehicle in the winter.

Birthday Weekend

  • 5 of 5

A friend's birthday celebration brought a number of long lost friends together for a truly relaxing weekend. Between the large deck, the yard, and the beautiful house we filled the space with new memories. The friendly communication with the owner, and overwhelming accommodations made for the best rental experience I've ever known. The family home made a perfect setting and the home's family made us feel comfortable to call or email for any questions. Nearby grocery, pizza, bars, and golf kept everything within comfortable reach, but the vast space gave us privacy to build an outdoor fire in the evening. I have already recommended Mt. Bliss to my family members as a vacation destination.

Thank you!

Great Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Mount Bliss was everything my wife and I could have hoped for. We had both of our families come up and stay with us (along with our dog Mags) and the house was truly gorgeous and clean with every amenity we could have asked for (including tons of dry, stacked firewood in the shed) and the views/surrounding land were breathtaking. The owners made it so easy to access and made sure to let us know that if we needed anything they were just a phone call away. Highly recommended!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a great time here. The amenities were fantastic. We played pool, ping pong, volleyball, bad mitton, poker, sat around the fire, watched TV in a great game room. It was a little cold so we didn't try the heated pool.

Mt. Bliss was truly blissful!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our vacation at Mt. Bliss and highly recommend this rental. The house had everything we needed and more. The kids loved the gameroom. The awesome heated pool was enjoyed by all. The owners were very pleasant and accommodating. It's perfect for a weeklong stay or a weekend getaway. We wouldn't hesitate to go back and hope to do so soon!

Complete Peace

  • 5 of 5

This was the most relaxing, peaceful vacation we have ever had (and we had 2 teenage girls with us!!) Mt. Bliss was beautiful. The location was perfect!!! When we did manage to pull ourselves away from the backyard and deck the house was stocked with everything you could ever want (and some things you didn't know you wanted) The owner was extremely responsive. I had an occasion to email during our stay and i had a response within 10 minutes!!! I believe we managed to stay on the only week the temperature did not hit 80 all week, but the pool was heated and warm and the kids LOVED swimming at night with the changing pool light. From smores at the firepit, to swimming, to watching movies, whatever you want to do you can do at Mt.Bliss. AND you can do it in complete privacy. We hope to come back again in the future!!!

There is so much history around the Laurel Highland area starting with Fort Ligonier only 8 miles from Mount Bliss. And, wineries are starting to pop up here and there with all kinds of festivities planned all year round. Idylwild Park with a water park is a fun day for the kids. And, don't forget, Pittsburgh is only an hour away and can provide a very busy day full of activities for the family. For the college bound student, Mount Bliss is a perfect place to stay while looking around for the perfect school of which there are many within an hour in almost every direction! Ohiopyle has some of the most challenging white water rafting around. And, Seven Springs and Hidden Valley offer some of the best skiing in the Mid-Atlantic region both only 20 minutes away. A very special place called Foggy Mountain Lodge is located right next to Mount Bliss. If you want to go out but not too far, you don't have to drive very far to enjoy a delicious lunch, dinner or just a cocktail.
