About Bob Pader

Owner of the property. My hobby has been remodeling this beautiful old subdivided mansion that you will get to stay in.

I am an Electrical Engineer from Penn State by trade.

Bob Pader purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Bob Pader chose Crafton

I wanted to create a very nice place for the corporate type traveler who needs something better than a hotel and would like a lot more privacy than a Extended Stay type room. I have traveled all over the world and sometimes for long periods of time in different locations. When I did what I created here is what I wish I could have found there. You will enjoy this creation and want to come back on your next stay.

Heated Jacuzzi

En Suite Laundry

Granite countertops marble floors in the kitchen and bathroom.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 4 days and had a great experience! The apartment was beautiful and in pristine condition! Everything looked new which was exciting! It had everything that we needed as we prepared several meals eating in! Bery convenient to the city and all the places we needed to get to. Close to the highway. Bob was very helpful with all the information that he provided and stayed in contact the whole weekend. Will definitely stay here again! Highly recommend!

Great place, great location.

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best places I've ever had the pleasure of staying. The location is in nice area of Crafton and the actual apartment looked great. The only complaint I have is there was a slight smell of gas but other than that it was a great place to stay. I highly recommend it. I will definitely stay here again in the future.

Cute little apartment not to far from city cemter

  • 4 of 5

Overall our stay here was great and I would rate it a 4-1/2 out of 5 but it won't let me. Plenty of parking available and easy to find. It's a basement apartment with easy access but not handicapped accessible as the steps are steep. You arrive to a lovely patio area with table chairs and grill. Drank coffee there every morning and drinks in the evening. Nice modern kitchen with every convenience thought of from toaster to crockpot and everything in between including a Keurig. Sleep number beds were easy to use. Bathroom is nice and modern with a jetted tub (didn't use). Plenty of linens are provided which is great.

It is pretty easy to get to PNC Park which was why we were staying in Pittsburgh. We took Uber once $26 round trip and decided to drive in and park at our sons garage as it was slightly cheaper. Convenient to grocery stores, gas and restaurants. The Sharp Edge is 2 blocks away with a great beer selection and good food.

The owner was quick to respond to a couple of small issues. Our only complaints were that the wifi was not working; the pillows on the bed leave a lot to be desired- we had to borrow some pillows from my son. And because it is a basement you hear everyone above you so sleeping in was not happening. Otherwise it was a great stay and we have booked again for another weekend in June.
