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 Pittsburgh area

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.

What makes this apartment unique

Exquisite Tin ceilings

Heated Jacuzzi

En Suite Laundry

Granite countertops marble floors in the kitchen and bathroom.

Includes all the appliances you will need

Each of the 2 bedrooms features an adjustable sleep number bed.
