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.
