Stonewood Lodge is primarily a multi-generational family rental that welcomes and hosts groups that include parents, grandparents and minor children. However, please keep in mind we keep a strict occupancy limit of 12 guests maximum including children of all ages to adhere to national fire safety codes.


I regret to say, for the safety for our guests, security for our home and liability risk to our property, it has become necessary to place an age and occupancy restriction on groups of singles and couples.

A minimum age of 50 with 8 guests maximum is required for groups of singles and couples because of problems we experienced with excessive drinking in our home that resulted in destructive and dangerous behavior. It's a shame that the actions of a few leave us no choice but to take drastic steps that affect many groups who really are looking for a vacation home, not a party house. Regrettably, I have no reliable way to distinguish between abusive party groups and honest, kind, classy, respectful, non-party renters. Many potential renters are unaware that In recent years there have been three accidental deaths of renters (two by fire and one by drowning) at different rental homes in the ski resort area of the Laurel Highlands!! Excessive drinking or drug use can lead to high risk behavior with serious consequences for the renters. As homeowners we are willing to rent less often and make less money to prevent the possible risk of injury or death to young party renters.

We kindly thank everyone for your understanding concerning this matter.


Stonewood Lodge, inside and out, surrounds you with a magnificent natural setting. Imagine overlooking the tranquil, deeply shaded woods with towering evergreen and hardwood trees that offer a feeling of quiet solitude. Walk along and delight in the sights and sounds of a pristine, rushing MOUNTAIN STREAM JUST 20 STEPS FROM THE LODGE. Renew your serenity and beauty through natural a feeling or mood of being 'In the mountains, away from it to and at the same time invigorating and rejuvenating!'

This majestic, stone, colonial mountain home was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's concept of 'Organic Architecture' featuring PURE-ORGANIC building materials from the earth: STONE and essence of Stonewood Lodge! Hand built from 250 tons of split and shaped natural, native stone. Finished in a 'Craftsman Style' with gorgeous, indigenous PENNSYLVANIA HARDWOODS HARVESTED FROM THE PROPERTY metaphor of permanence resonates in an authentic 'Built by Owner' style reminiscent of an era gone by.

The home's interior living space was designed to bring elements of Nature indoors. Wild Black Cherry, White Sugar Maple and Red Oak were used throughout the Lodge to create custom cabinetry, unique furniture and finish every ceiling and bathrooms, mudrooms, every closet and even the garage! Not one drop of stain was used to alter the 'real' color and grain of the wood in order to reveal its beautifully deep and rich natural patina! The total effect enhances visual pleasure and aesthetics...AS IF VIEWING A WORK OF ART BY MOTHER NATURE!

This impressive resort home is truly without equal...a unique blend of opulent refinement and rustic charm designed to delight and transport you beyond the ordinary, mundane stresses of modern life. The Lodge offers top of the line KITCHEN AID appliances, CUSTOM CABINETRY and GRANITE counter tops in both kitchens and all six bathrooms! TWO 50 inch SAMSUNG PLASMA TV's! SUNDANCE OPTIMA HotTub w/stereo, waterfall & lights! BRUNSWICK Pool Table w/All BRUNSWICK Accessories! TWO BOSE Stereo Systems! S/S JENN-AIRE gas grill! Beautiful professional landscaping with over 325 ornamental trees! Premium 100% NATURAL CORK flooring! FREE use of: 4 Old Town 16' Canoes & 12 Trek Pure bikes!

LOCATION, LOCATION, Lodge is in the geographic center of the entire Laurel Highlands tourist region. It is conveniently nestled right between two State Parks AND two Ski Resorts, Seven Springs and Hidden minutes to both. The property is adjacent and directly connected to 60,000 acres of Forbes State Forest and Laurel Hill State park. Because we are connected to the State Park we enjoy the best hiking, snowmobile and cross-country ski trails in the entire Laurel Highlands right out our back door!

Stonewood Lodge...Simply Stunning!!!

Best Family Thanksgiving Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Stonewood Lodge is amazing in the pictures, and breathtaking when you see it in real-life. Our family now lives in various states and wanted to do Thanksgiving under 1 roof in a central location. We found Jim & Suzanne's Stonewood Lodge on VRBO and their kindness and hospitality were amazing from our first email exchange throughout our stay and afterwards. The home is perfect in every way, flawlessly clean, and beautifully decorated. Everything you could ever need for a mountain retreat & vacation is provided by the owners, you just bring your own food. We prepared an entire Thanksgiving dinner using their amenities. Our family ranges from young children to senior citizens, and every person had an amazing time. We will absolutely return to stay at Jim & Suzanne's Stonewood Lodge. They are great people, with a great home!

Jim and Sue are great hosts. Stonewood lodge is even better than the pictures show. The attention to detail is evident everywhere. The lodge is impeccably clean and beautifully decorated. Everything you will need other than food is supplied. We are whitewater kayakers and the lodge is about 45 minutes from Ohiopyle State park where you can start your trip down the lower Youghiogheny river. There is plenty to do and we only began to explore this area. Another nice thing was that there were hardly any mosquito's and we were there during a very wet summer. There was seven in our group and everyone was very happy with our vacation. I would recommend this property to anyone. It will be hare to beat this vacation. Thanks Jim and Sue

Our biggest and best family reunion ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had very high expectations based on the VRBO advertisement, but they were EXCEEDED by the accommodations, amenities, readily-available local activities, and the extra effort the owners put into assuring our vacation was excellent. Hiking, biking, canoeing, going to the lake beach, playing pool, using the hot tub, and making s'mores at the firepit were daily events. Every need was anticipated - to include even having an electric air pump for the bicycle tires. We represented 3 generations, and all of us had a great time. The recreational area on the first floor had a big-screen TV with video games and DVDs which enabled us to have two or more age-based activities going on simultaneously in the evenings after dinner, and the bedrooms were located far enough away from the later-night activities so that our three young grandsons didn't wake up. We had a wide variety of nutritional preferences, so it really helped to have two full-sized refrigerators. Even though we maxed out the allowable guest capacity, we never felt cramped. I mean it when I say that staying at the Stonewood Lodge was what made this family reunion so memorable!

Stonewood Lodge was even more beautiful in person than the pictures. JIm and Suzanne provided everything we could possibly need for a wonderful time. We enjoyed the bikes, the canoes, the hot tub, and watching the wildlife.

Superb property

  • 5 of 5

The property was very nice. We are 3 families with little children and was able to use their 6 bed rooms. There are 3 bed rooms at the center location around the kitchen/great room, and 3 more a bit further away across the study/sitting area. This is quite good that we can send the children in bed early. The grown-ups can keep talking and playing cards in the great room, without worrying about our noises waking up the children.

It's great to use the outdoor Jacuzzi in winter, which is set constantly at 103F. It's fun to sit in hot water and watch snow flakes dropping by. They have a very nice outside BBQ grill, besides the very nice kitchen filled with top quality appliances.

Remember to ask Jim the landlord to silence the chime clock. It's a very fancy standing clock that chimes every hour in the basement. I was woken up by it pretty much every hour the first night. Jim was quick to silence it the next day.

I wish we would had a chance to use the ATV or BMW motor bike, or the fire pit. Maybe next time.

Over all: very nice property, excellent upkeep, friendly landlord. A bit pricey especially in the area but well worth it.
