The Allegheny mountains are a unique rugged rural area of central PA that seem to remain relatively undiscovered by the outside world. There are plenty of outdoor opportunities, short day trips to much of central and western PA and it is simply a peaceful and relaxing area to recharge yourself or spend time with your loved ones.
The 2 bedroom 2 bath condo can sleep up to 6 with a pull out couch. It is located at a 9 hole golf course and within a mile of the lodge for Blue Knob Ski Resort (the highest skiable mountain in PA). Miles of hiking and biking trails are located at the edges of the condo complex. It is also located near the borders of state game lands and Blue Knob State Park in the beautiful Allegheny mountains. Johnstown, Bedford and Altoona are all approximately 1/2 hour away, State College and Raystown Lake are within an hour drive, Pittsburgh is within 2 hours of the condo.
The condo complex includes 2 restaurants (one open seasonally and for special events), an indoor pool, 2 hot tubs, and outdoor pool and tennis court. It is located a 2600 feet above sea level ensuring moderate summer temperatures and plenty of natural snow in the winter.
The condo is not set up as a rental but as our own personal vacation home with nice quality furniture, fixtures, full kitchen appliances and amenities as such we will only be renting to mature vetted renters who will respect our property and in turn receive an excellent value stay that can't be beat. Please contact us for more information about the opportunities this area offers for a quiet relaxing trip to the mountains. Whatever your interests, it is within a short day trip from this condo.

We are an outdoor family on the go who love skiing, hiking, biking and being together. This place has it all in a relaxed atmosphere that you won't find anywhere else.
Benjamin Roth purchased this condo in 2014
Peaceful relaxing place. While we bought the place as a ski condo we have found that it is an amazing place off season. We all can sleep in hours after when we would normally wake and find the whole life away from the hustle simply a great breath of fresh air.
Ben's condo at the Blue Knob resort was well-equipped, convenient, tidy and clean, and included a fireplace already set up with starter logs and stacked wood. Nice wooded view from the small screened-in balcony/porch, where a good supply of firewood was stacked. Great floor plan and multiple temperature controls throughout. Ben and his wife are generous hosts! Thanks for the Merlot and the cozy fireplace! The condo maintenance team was very prompt: we got about 6 inches of snow overnight, and by the morning, the privates roads, parking lot, and walkway to our condo had been cleared. Ben's place is a nice and affordable get-away for all-seasons.
My family and I had a great time in the mountains of central Pa. The condo had everything we could hope for and more. We enjoyed the fireplace, shuttle service to lodge, all the amenities for cooking our meals and comfy beds to rest on at night. Thank you for a great memory!
I hesitated in writing a great review, because now I'm afraid everyone else will find out about the best condo at Blue Knob! The photos don't do justice to this nice gem. It's very nicely appointed, super clean, comfy beds, and configured in a way to make the most of the limited space. Ben thought of everything when preparing the condo for our visit, honestly, I couldn't find one thing that was missing. Plus, it's in the most convenient location, the shuttle bus that runs up the mountain to the slopes, stops right out front! Great job Ben! Looking forward to returning.
The space was small, but still adequate and as promised. One room has a queen bed that is high off of the ground. Anyone with any limited mobility or small childeren may have an issue, but we did not find it to be a negative.
The condo is very accessible, and easy to load and unload luggage, etc.
The condo was very clean, and the owner's preparations and hospitality were excellent. The fireplace was set and loaded to go for us when we arrived! The unit was nicely appointed with all of the basic necessities. Heat and Water pressure were good. I would definitely recommend this unit!
The condo is cozy, comfortable, and complete. You will not be able to need or want anything during your stay. When you walk in, there are warm throws on the couch in front of a waiting fire - just light it - and enjoy the bottle of wine that you are invited to open. Ben is amazing to work with. He is very prompt in his replies and goes overboard to help make your stay better, if that's even possible. I'll be back again.
What a surprise to not only find the fire match ready but homemade cookies waiting for us! Quiet even over New Years Eve.
Very comfortable and nicely decorated. The wet bar area was great. The bedrooms were separated in such a way that it could be considered 2 masters. The toughest decision was to stay in by the fire or ski.
Ben was extremely helpful and easy to work with. Instructions were great. One note - While the WiFi was great even for streaming (loved having the Roku, usually bring my own) there is almost No Phone Service (Verizon). A direct line is available but if you rely on texting, create a free account such as TextNow to send and receive texts while connected to WiFi.
Thanks for a wonderful stay!
