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.

It is at a great location close to all the area attractions. Nice wrap around desk to enjoy the outdoors
5 minutes to the ski lift. Hike or Cross Country ski directly into neighboring State Park. Walk to restaurant with outdoor dining.
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.
We rented the house for a girls weekend. The house is in a very nice setting, away from the road but not too far away. The house is very homey, fells comfortable and has plenty of space, It is also decorated nicely. The main bathroom is surprisingly spacious. There is a nice fire pit in the back and lots of deck space. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to stay at this house again.
My family and I have rented many cabins and this cabin was one of the best. Very clean and comfortable I really cant say enough about how wonderful this cabin was. We went to Ligonier Days and spent time hiking and visiting family. My only suggestion would be that there needs to be baking dishes for the oven there's plenty of pots and pans but nothing to bake with. We are already planning a return visit.
Located in the heart of the Laurel Highlands Region, the property has access to ski resorts, state parks, wineries, White Water Rafting, and Frank Lloyd Wrights Fallingwater.
