Ohiopyle vacation rentals

A haven for outdoor enthusiasts

Dark forested tracks vie with steep banks of rhododendron bushes and coppery hillsides of beech trees to make up the stunning scenery that surrounds this small resort town. And, just to make things even more heavenly, it’s all accompanied by the serene soundtrack of waters rushing over rocks. Ohiopyle boasts some of the best whitewater in the country and is a paradise for rafting, kayaking, and scenic treks. In winter, book a ski-in/walk-out Ohiopyle vacation rental at one of the local resorts to enjoy the skiing, snowmobiling, and sledding.

Getting wet and wild in Ohiopyle

Nature is very much the star in these parts. At Cucumber Falls, you’ll watch as the gleaming sheet of water vertically surges 30 feet into a shallow pool in the middle of town. Close by, along the rushing Youghiogheny River, a number of businesses offer whitewater, rock climbing, and biking adventures. Seasonal events provide family fun, especially Ohiopyle’s Winterfest of snowy sports. Meanwhile, local bands and food vendors venture into the fresh mountain air to come together for the Music in the Mountains festival each September, just as the fall color begins to steal over the hillsides.

Iconic architecture near Ohiopyle

Reached by winding hillside roads, the pretty town of Ohiopyle is small enough to walk around. From your Ohiopyle vacation rental, most local attractions can be reached by the hiking trails that span out into the 20,000 acres of Ohiopyle State Park. Here, you’re surrounded by the stunning scenery and noise of water that helped inspire Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater. One of the most famous homes ever built in the United States, this strikingly angular landmark of architecture is perched above a waterfall just a few hours’ hike from town, and is now open to the public via its visitor center.

Summer sun, winter snow

Come early in the season to enjoy colorful spring wildflowers and the best of the water. June through September, Ohiopyle can enjoy temperatures in the 70s, ideal for making the most of the rafting, hiking, and biking trails. The Meadow Run water slides, which are natural slides whisking happy visitors over smooth rocks, are popular on sunny summer days. You can expect snow December through March, transforming the area into a winter wonderland which begs to be explored on skis. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned cross-country skier, there are miles of powdery landscape to discover.

Go cycling in the lush wilderness

This area is known for the frothy waterways from which it gets its name, so it’s no surprise rafters, kayakers and wild swimmers are all drawn to Ohiopyle vacation rentals. The region is also ideal for cycling enthusiasts: mountain bikers will love breezing downhill under the trees to the sound of birdsong high overhead. Or, for more sedate exploring, try the Yough River Bike Trail. When the season is right, you can hunt deer, turkey, grouse and other wild game, or head to the beautiful waters for wilderness trout fishing.
