About Shari DeNardo

U. S. Recreational Properties is a developer of high quality rustic-styled vacation homes in locations offering great access to a variety of recreational pursuits and is the first to offer fractional ownership opportunities in the Laurel Highlands.

The USREC partnership is comprised of a handful of families who enjoy the outdoors and nature, and who have traveled to Wyoming, Montana, Colorado and Alaska among other exciting destinations. Their appreciation of nature, enthusiasm for the outdoor lifestyle and adventurous recreation inspired them to form USREC, thus to create an opportunity for others to enjoy the same.

Shari DeNardo purchased this house in 2011

Why Shari DeNardo chose Pennsylvania

The Laurel Highlands caters to the outdoor enthusiast offering a vast array of activities for every type of traveler: those who love the thrill of white water rafting and downhill skiing; those who enjoy fishing and hunting; those who are more conservative in their travels and are interested history, covered bridges and wineries; and, of course, those who gravitate towards resort vacationing, spas and golf courses. It has something for everyone!

What makes this house unique

This property is unique because of its close proximity to resorts and recreation, yet it is nestled among a forest of trees, on a mountaintop that is peaceful, serene and tranquil. It encourages quality time and relaxation. The only noise you hear is the rustling of the trees and the occasional whinny from the horses on the neighboring ranch.

The house's layout, with a great room and adjacent dining room/kitchen, enables a large group such as ours (17 people) to really hang out together; even the person(s) preparing meals can remain a part of the conversation. The house is beautifully appointed and maintained. Dishes and cooking utensils were plentiful and of good quality. The geothermal system kept us comfortable despite some very cold weather.

A phenomenal home to share with family and friends!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 9 gather at Redwood for a 50th birthday celebration. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was clean, beautifully appointed and decorated, and had plenty of space with great flow. We did have trouble with water pressure in the bathrooms, so showering was an issue...but it didn't stop us from enjoying our stay. Overall, it was all we expected and more!

Christmas Family Stay at Redwood

  • 3 of 5

Nice house. good layout.

Microwave only works sometimes. Most of the interior doors don't have functioning locks, including the bathroom doors.

Large hole in back of kitchen cabinet. Mouse dropping in pots and pans. Some of our packaged foods were chewed open by mice.

Fireplace is only a rotating light bulb type. Picture looks like fireplace, but its not. Fake fire makes rubbing noise. cant use the electric heat blower on fireplace because of very louse metal clanging noise.

Blu Ray player doesn't work

with some more attention to maintenance and detail, could be great. for that kind of money we hoped for no surprises.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately none of these items were ever brought to our attention and the home is leased every weekend. If the microwave was broke it is now fixed as I sent my appliance man out to the home. Mouse traps were set up. I have contacted my data and TV rep and he is going to the home and doing a complete evaluation and making any necessary repairs within 7 days. The fireplace will also be reviewed. We strive to keep our homes above and beyond our customers standards and have many repeat guests. Please take the time to read additional reviews. Thank you.
