The Yough Treehouse has 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
The Yough Treehouse (YTH) is located in the town of Confluence, near Lucky Dog Cafe and Riversport--in the heart of the Laurel Highlands Mountains.
YTH sits on 2 acres along the Youghiogheny River. Surrounded by over 50 acres of protected woods (*recently purchased by Western PA Conservancy and trails are in the works), at the end of a one lane road but within walking distance to town and 400 yds to the Great Allegheny Passage bike trail.
Our quiet, secluded home is custom built, well equipped and clean. The house is 1500 sq feet with an open floor plan in the kitchen/living area. Also on the ground floor is a full bath. Two steps up there is a spacious master bedroom with a king bed and a second bedroom with twins. Above is large loft with a queen bed and full sleeper sofa-a room with a view. The house has a big front porch and just off the well equipped kitchen is the riverside deck with a propane grill.
Enjoy the natural beauty of the area relaxing on our spacious deck overlooking the river. Listen for geese, ducks and other birds while soaking the secluded hot tub. Fly fish for trout in the well stocked tailwaters of the dam in our back yard. Watch for heron, osprey or if you are lucky the bald eagles.
Make a day swimming and boating at the Yough Lake. Take a break from your ride through from DC to Pittsburgh on the bike trail or spend the day biking shorter routes to nearby Ohiopyle, Connellsville, Rockwood or Meyersdale. Make this the perfect retreat for trips to the 2 Frank Lloyd Wright homes (Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob) nearby. We are centrally located to the ski resorts (Wisp, Seven Springs & Hidden Valley). Enjoy rafting, canoeing and kayaking right out our door-or for more adventure in nearby Ohiopyle or Friendsville, MD.
Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, a family planning the ultimate vacation or old friends looking for a quiet retreat our home is the perfect setting.

About Kara (Treehouse)
I grew up in Confluence and developed a love of the outdoors, which turned into a career racing kayaking and eventually how I met my husband. We purchased the 'Treehouse' in 1996, started a family and lived until 2010 when we moved to nearby Morgantown, WV. We were heartbroken with the thought of selling our beloved home. One day a good friend, who knew of our dilemma said, 'Why don't you make it a vacation rental and keep it?!'. And instantly our problem of parting with our home was solved and we were on our way to making it an ideal vacation home. Renting our home as been incredibly rewarding, as we love to make people happy and we are proud to share our much loved home and the wonders of the Laurel Highlands with others. What we miss most about our home are: hosting friends on the deck, making pizzas on the kitchen island, hot tubbing after a long x country ski or bike trip, seeing a pair of bald eagles diving for breakfast out our kitchen window and the convenient access to the outdoors. That is why we are sharing this unique spot with others. We think you'll love it too.

Why Kara (Treehouse) chose Confluence
The Treehouse has an unbeatable location and the perfect layout for a small multi generational family, a single family or a small group of friends. Perched on the Yough River, moments to the GAP bike trail and surrounded by 50 acres of woods, yet within walking distance to town. The Treehouse feels secluded yet nearby. The house is beautiful, well appointed and clean. The large deck, hot tub and newly landscaped riverside fire ring patio are meant for family and friend quality time. Come to the mountains to relax and enjoy.
What makes this House unique
Some of the unique benefits of staying here are: the convenience to town, the quiet, the surrounding woods, strolling down to Lucky Dog Cafe for dinner, soaking in the claw foot master bath tub--or better yet, the hot tub, drinking coffee while reading the paper on the deck, basically no traffic on our one lane road, the eagles, heron and osprey, the fishing and the proximity to the bike trail, oh and the river!

Great house in beautiful setting! Very well equipped with everything we needed.
We loved this house!
We enjoyed our stay. Beautiful views of the river and park. Very quiet in the daytime.
We had a great experience here, and can't wait to come back!
Clean, spacious, and comfy with an amazing hot tub and a gorgeous view!
This property is lovely and was perfect for our ladies weekend. The kitchen and living room area is a wonderful space to relax and spend time together as a group. There were many surprises and special touches that make this a stand out among similar properties. From the custom hand made soaps, to the robes and Crocs for hot tub use, to the robe/towel hooks for hanging items by the hot tub, to the pathway lighting, to the wall mounted bottle openers, there were happy discoveries at every turn. The Treehouse is such a fitting name for this lovely property and we highly recommend it!
Everything you could want in a rental!
We stayed in this home for 2 days after Christmas with our 2 children (age 7 and 9). The home is just beautiful and well maintained. Kitchen is fully stocked, as are all linens and towels. Super cozy layout and just 30 mins from Seven Springs where we went skiing. Absolutely gorgeous views, especially the stars at night from the hot tub. We are looking forward to coming back in the summer or fall! Appreciate how the owners truly have thought of everything you could need. Highly recommend.
Can't wait to return.
We've visited the Yough Treehouse four times this year and look forward to our return. The property is clean and well maintained. The beds and pillows are very comfortable. The kitchen is set up well for cooking. Kara is very responsive to inquiries/emails and wonderful to work with on arrangements. We enjoy relaxing on the deck and walking the nearby trails with our dog Bear. We also enjoy eating at the Lucky Dog and the River's Edge. I highly recommend this property!
