About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 10-13)

Brand new five bedroom home located within minutes of both Seven Springs and Hidden Valley ski resorts. This home, surrounded in a bueatiful wooded setting, has everything you could want and more and surrounded in a beautiful wooded setting.

It is located on a private 2 and 1/2 acre lots. There are two very large decks. One is located just off the kitchen and the other off the front that has a beautiful mountain view. This is a unique opportunity to experience the Laurel Mountains within the privacy of your own mountain rental home. You will find this home to be a beautiful rental at an reasonable price.

The home has five large private bedrooms. The master bedroom is located on the main level just off the kitchen and great room. There is a large pillow top queen bed. There is also a closet, dresser and television. There are two large private loft bedrooms. Each bedroom has a double bed and dresser. Step out of the bedrooms and you have a walkway that overlooks the great room. There is also a desk area so you can read or do work and still have a view of the great room.

In the completely finished basement there are two large bedrooms. The first bedroom has a queen bed, dresser, and large closet. The other bedroom has a king bed and dresser. Also in the basement is another living area complete with gas fireplace and pinball machine. Located there is a large and comfortable futon bed that provides additional sleeping accommodations.

The great room has cathedral ceilings and plenty of space for the guests to spread out. There are numerous windows to let in the natural light and beautiful wooded scenery. All of the ceilings are oak. The are also wood floors. There is a beautiful stone fire place.

All of the firewood is provided for free. There is a big screen television with a full Bose surround sound system. We have added a unique bar/ counter that is actually made out of a large tree and still has the bark. There is seating for eight at the bar. There is a full kitchen that includes all major appliances and cooking utensils.

There are 1 and 1/2 baths, separate from the sleeping quarters. The master bath has a shower with unlimited hot water, so many guests can shower without running out. The second is a powder room.

The home is located within walking distance to the entrance to Forbes State forest. You can actually bike or hike right off the property. Both Seven Springs and Hidden Valley are just a short drive away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“A group of us from fast paced careers in the city needed some R&R in the woods. We searched specifically for something with a hot tub and found the fantastic location! Russell was very available for questions as a host and provided all necessary details for our stay. The grounds are quite private without being extremely remote - there are shops and stores within 20 minutes. Very spacious cabin with indoor fire-place and full kitchen. A beautiful wooden bar/table sits in the living area to accommodate large dinners and board games. A really stellar spot and an A+ all around. Will definitely add to our go-to list for future get-aways!”

2017 Mini Ski Trip Get Away

  • 3 of 5

The location of the Mountain View Home was ideal to access both Seven Springs Ski Resort as well as Hidden Valley Ski Resort. We had 2 families staying for 4 nights for a mini winter ski vacation with our families.

The directions to the home were very good. The ease of arrival/key access was exceptional.

Upon arrival, I honestly was a little disappointed in the upkeep of some of the furniture (i.e., the bar stools were unstable and one was actually falling apart). The home was warmed by base board electrical heat; which created a very dry atmosphere thereby causing some sinus conditions by the time we left. There were several light bulbs out. (bedroom downstairs and bathroom). The two games shown in the pictures didn't work (or at least we couldn't get them to function.) We initially could not get the TV to function, but we reached out to the owner, who responded and we were able to get the local channels - no cable available. But, the biggest issue for us was that we had 7 people staying in the home and there is only one shower(located off in the den /great room area). Granted, I take responsibility for not paying closer attention when booking. But, I would definitely suggest anyone looking at the home take that into consideration - it can create challenges. The kitchen is small, there is no dish washer. It's workable, but when cooking for the larger crowd, it can create a challenge keeping dishes clean.

Overall, we had a very nice vacation! The owners were attentive. We had a snow shovel available for use which was very handy as we were lucky enough to have approximately 18 inches of fresh snow during our visit!

Plenty of space for sleeping with five bedrooms. However, we rented the place for Thanksgiving and the kitchen is tiny, the oven had only one rack, all utensils, pans, and dishes though washed, were not clean, and the refrigerator was missing shelves and drawers. Food prep and storage was difficult. Lots of great firewood but no way we could find to clean massive pile up of ashes from previous renters. Vacuum and broom provided, we had to sweep when we arrived and when we left. Floors need to be cleaned with steam mop or wiped they were dirty. Fortunately ,we found a scarf ( not ours) melted into one of the base board heating units before a fire started. Lots of parking and nice big table/bar for our dinner. We were grateful that the owner did allow us to rent for just two days.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of MountainView. You guys were great guests. Great communication before and after stay. First, let me thank you for finding that scarf. Glad you found it before it could of escalated. Yes the kitchen is a bit small. We have had our own Thanksgiving a few years a go so we know it can be a bit tight. But having it up the mountains and on that huge tree top table made it all worth it. We are looking to replace the flooring on the main level as we do not ask guest to take off shoes so it got some wear and tear. Water and snow damaged the floor boards resulting in fragments coming off which gives the appearance of dirt. Sorry about no shovel for fireplace ashes. It literally just broke a day before your arrival. We now have it replaced. Thanks again for your review as we just made lots of upgrades to this cabin, with new beds dressers, and a couch. We have a new 50" television being installed this weekend....So out with the big screen! wahoo

Secluded but outdated.

  • 3 of 5

Private lot house is nice but in need of updates. Kitchen has no baking sheets and only one small pot. They have a few skillets the knives are very dull so bring your own. Bring blankets. The house is cold. Baseboard heat but the house has many open drafts that the heaters can't keep up with. The door seals are just weathered. We tried to use the grill but the tank was almost empty we lit the grill cooked for about 5 minutes and ran out of gas. The owners offered to reimburse if we went and had it refilled but that wasn't an option for us. Bring a spare tank if you plan to use it or maybe the owners will buy another tank by the time you rent. One of the beds is in very rough shape and we decided to not use it in fear it would break. The fireplace was nice and a common spot to hang out due to the heat issue. However we had a blast. The large bar is a great place to play cards and board games. The kitchen is small but easy to work in with others. The bedrooms are very roomy. The couches and chairs are really nice. We would stay again but would have to pay less in order to make it worth it for us.

We had a great time. The house could be updated a bit but everything is in working condition and it provides almost anything you might need. I wish the deposit would be smaller and returned faster.

Your refund was returned 2 weeks after your departure date, which is standard. You had great communications with us and left the cabin in great condition. Great guests. We hope you visit us again to see the new upgrades!

Cabin fun

It was nice and perfect for what we were looking for. Big area and very excluded. Private and perfect for a big group.

When you see the pictures, you think about how cute and quaint the cabin looks, but when the moment you enter, you are overwhelmed with smell. The stench of mold and mildew permeates the place. It disgustingly affects your ability to breathe. The hot tub's water was green and disgusting. No one sitting in it could see their legs. The beds were borderline unsleepable, they were so uncomfortable. This trip was beyond disappointing. We had to leave a day early because it was so unclean. If you value your health, Do not stay here unless it is for one night.

And on a nitpicky note, the tv was 20 years old and the DVD player didn't work. Not that important but in the interest of full disclosure, it's true.

Owner's Response: As an owner we take great pride in all of our properties. It does though surprise me that a customer can get so upset over an additional $30 charge after check out due to their long haired dogs being allowed to sleep on the beds and all the furniture would make them write such a bad review. This customer did only. Rent for a two day weekday stay at our home at an incredibly reasonable price. We did even allow the two dogs to come as well at not additional charge since it was only two days and we did not even charge for that. They stayed the entire time and never once called to ask questions or complaine they had any problem what so ever. After my cleaning staff went up there the day after check out she informed my secretary that she would need to wash all of the comforters and while down all the sofas and chairs due to there was dog hair everywhere. The staff is always advised to call us first to confirm the additional cost for such additional work and expense. We agreed to allow that and didn't want to make the drive of 3 hours to inspect the property to confirm that since it was only an additional $30 more which is 2 hours work for my cleaning lady. The time and fuel alone would have been more than that. She has been working for us for 2 years and is a pre-school teacher and extremely honest. Honestly she charged us only $30 so of course we passed that expense off to the customer who again admitted he did have dogs there. After my secretary good a very upset call from him over that charge he then decided to write a totally fabricated review of the home. I repeat at no time ever during or after the stay did I or my secretary up there ever recieve one call, text or email that there was ever any problems what so ever. Even after I read the review I reached out to the customer with no resolve. This place has amazing reviews from all of my other customers and I hope and wish you can see that. We have an amazing home at at great price and continue to keep this place impeccable. Just read all my other reviews. I will have to be a little more dilligent perhaps on the dog owners we allow but honestly I am a dog owner of two beautiful golden retrievers. The difference may perhaps be that My wife and I are extremely mindful of the duties that come with their long hair and other concearns. I would hope this customer felt the same but I do feel totally justified in that all I did was charge them exactly the cost what my cleaning staff passed on to us.
