About the property

Craftsman Style Cottage In Heart Of Laurel Highlands

Sited high on a wooded cliff overlooking the valley below with a beautiful trout stream, this cottage is in located in the heart of the Laurel Highlands, just minutes to resorts and other activities: 5 minutes to ski lift; walk to restaurant and gourmet shop, Short walk or cross country ski to neighboring state park.

This mountain cottage is the former home of the manager of the neighboring ski resort, and has many luxury amenities. It has been completely renovated for the 2014 season, and practically everything is new, while retaining lots of mountain charm. The living room features a 2 story stone fireplace with tongue and groove atrium ceiling, skylights, and 2 mission style sofas, recliner, Vizio flat screen Smart TV with free on-demand video access and WiFi access.

The new kitchen features stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher, full sized refrigerator, smooth top oven, built-in microwave, and Cusineart coffee maker. A butcher block kitchen island seats 2 for informal dining, while the adjoining dining area with handmade rustic lighting fixtures seats 6. The dining area has french doors which open up to a covered porch and outdoor eating area, providing a continuous indoor/outdoor seasonal living/dining area.

There are 3 bedrooms, including a large master bedroom with built in window seat and high-end, queen Sleep Number mattress, with adjustable firmness to match your exact preference. Each of the 2 additional bedrooms sleep 2, with plenty of closet and dresser space and a dedicated half bath. A top-of-the line LG Front load Laundry center provided further convenience. The cottage easily sleeps 6, but can accommodate up to 8 guests.

All plumbing and heating systems are new, with new bathroom fixtures, an efficient central heat pump for both heating and cooling, and individual room temperature controls. On a cold winters night, the stone fireplace with low maintenance gas insert provides for additional heat and ambiance.

A big attraction of this property is the access to the outdoors. A large multi-level wrap around deck provides outdoor living space, and sits high above the bubbling trout stream in the valley below. The deck is built around a hemlock tree, which provides for pleasant summer shade. Huge rock outcroppings, mountain laurel, and ferns surround the property. Private trails provide access to a mountain spring and the stream, available for fishing (class 1 trout stream). The property is private, and backs to hundreds of acres of undeveloped mountain resort property. A trail leads directly to the adjoining state park, with lake, sand beach, and numerous hiking and picnic options.

A sun room provides a lovely place to enjoy the outdoors, even if the weather is not cooperative. With windows on 3 sides, rustic timber walls, and very a comfortable Lloyd Flanders Wicker set, it oozes with cottage charm!

Area attractions include ski and golf resorts, upscale winery (10 minutes), Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater, White Water Rafting, Amusement Parks, and biking. Additionally, the neighboring resorts offer restaurants, spas, concerts, and summer day camps.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just returned to Pittsburgh, had a very enjoyable time at the cottage. Except for some drizzle on Wed. the weather cooperated. We really got to know the Laurel Hill Park, didn't fish as much as I hoped but did some biking and the trails were great, especially the Hemlock Trail--amazing.
