Robin Morris purchased this Chateau / Country House in 1999
Why Robin Morris chose Confluence
The Laurel Highlands of Pennsylvania is an outdoor mecca. It boasts the best whitewater kayaking and rafting in the Eastern US, has the longest rails to trail bicycle trail in the states and an amazing array of hiking and mountain biking trails. We are surrounded by 4 State parks and our four ski resorts keep us active for the winter season.Being adjacent to Ohiopyle state park we have a front row seat to all of these things. We are secluded but close enough to the small towns of Confluence and Ohiopyle that anything we need can be easily obtained. In addition, we are located close to Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob and these along with the other cultural attractions available just an hour and a half away in PLittsburgh we feel we have the best of all worlds
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
We are riverside and this gorgeous Chalet has a large stone fireplace (two stories high!) cathedral ceilings, all Cypress ceiling, expansive decking, outdoor fire pit, large yard and beautiful landscaping. It is a true dream property.

Step back to simpler life slow down and enjoy nature
Beautiful river setting!
Robin and Dan were great hosts, and the accommodations were lovely. We enjoyed the chalet and the gorgeous grounds that surround it-very private and peaceful. And yes, we enjoyed the trains! We had to cut our stay short by one day, but hated to leave our special retreat!
We hated to see your lively bunch go!
A beautiful ambience, great hosts, perfect for our group of 3.
We came to celebrate a birthday--three friends who love hiking and just wanted some down time to hang out. Dan and Robin were wonderful hosts, checking in on us the first night to make sure we had everything we needed. The chalet is cozy, surrounded by trees and situated between a river and some train tracks. When the door or windows were propped, you could hear the river. You can also hear the train when it goes by, but it's not loud and in fact we LOVED it. We spent hours by the fire each night, reveling in the beauty and down time. During the days, we hiked in Ohiopyle...despite the heavy snowfall, the temperature was above 30 and made for a perfect hike. Before leaving, we purchased some beautiful pottery from Robin and Dan's shop...overall, it was just what we wanted.
We were three women, 2 of us mommies in deep need of sleep, and we realized once arriving that we each wanted a room to ourselves (rather than one sleeping on the couch or the loft overlook, which requires a climb up a ladder and could be cumbersome if you needed to use the restroom in the dark night). Robin graciously opened the downstairs area for us at the last minute and it was perfect: an entire additional bedroom (plus, if you needed them, 2 more beds and a kitchen/bathroom).
Our own Polar Express holiday get away!
What a perfect setting for a Christmas away from home! The house was everything we hoped for and then some. The owners are so gracious and kind; there is nothing they didn't think of including providing us a Christmas tree so our family holiday felt truly festive. The icing on the cake was the train that runs by the house. It's not loud and cumbersome; it's magical and makes you feel like you've taken a step back in time. The train actually stopped in front of the house on Christmas Eve with all its glorious sounds - we were already in pj's so we felt like it was the Polar Express picking us up to take us on a hot chocolate drinking train ride to the North Pole!
Should we ever need to be in SW PA again Paddler's Lane will always be my home away from home.
It was great. Great location by the river. Clean and spacious. Would definitely stay here again.
Fished in the River with my Navy Brothers. Sat around the fire outside and enjoyed the evenings. Used the grill almost every day.
We loved having your adventurous group stay; glad you took the opportunity to raft the Upper Youghiogheny and enjoy our favorite river. We would enjoy having you back. In the meantime, safe travels to your band of nomads!
Enjoyed our stay
We had a great time during our stay at Robin's chalet. The property worked great for the adults and children in our group. The kids loved the river behind the chalet and they enjoyed seeing the trains. The trains didn't really bother anyone in our group. We hope to visit again next year.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. We would love to have you back!
Near Falling water and Kentuck Knob, Natural water slides, BIke trail, French and Indian war history. We are located in the middle of an area known for hiking, rafting canoeing and kayaking, bicycling, climbing, fishing and skiing. We share a border with Ohiopyle State Park; it really is magnificent.

Rental of this auxiliary apartment adds $100 to the price of the Chalet and brings the sleeping capacity up to 10. the Chalet also has a loft space which will sleep two as a sleeping option. We count this as a sleeping OPTION rather than additional sleeping space as it is more suitable for young adults who quickly become enamored with it. This space is not as suitable for mature adults as it is accessed by ladder and the sleeping cots are on the floor. Kids and young adults fall in love with it; mature adults want their own bedroom.
