About the property

Clean, FULLY renovated and stocked 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps up to 6

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.

Linens and towel to be provided by the renter (queen size beds). It is also expected that you will do a full cleaning of the condo before leaving otherwise a portion of your deposit will be withheld for cleaning and follow check in/out instructions for adjusting the heat and water heater.

Pet are permitted on a case by case basis, they are your responsibility to clean up after and ensure they do not disturb our neighbors. An extra security deposit may be required. Contact us for more information about bringing your pet.

About Benjamin Roth

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

Why Benjamin Roth chose Pennsylvania

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.

Blue Knob Getaway.

  • 5 of 5

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!

Repeat Renter

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great Getaway! Quiet and Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Warm, Comfy Ski Condo Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Loved everything about this place. As you drive up to the resort, you definitely escape city life and enter a ski getaway as the signs of snow increase with the elevation. The condo was more than spacious enough for our family of 3 (5 yr old child) and our dog. For a larger group, I'm sure it would still work well and for sure would sleep up to 6 (2 to a bed).

The kitchen has all the necessary supplies with creative displays all around from hanging ball jars of silverware to a nice coffee and wine nook to well crafted metalwork art. The bedrooms were great with plenty of drawer space and blankets (need to bring sheets / towels)! (Note also that one bed is elevated, so it wouldn't work for younger guests.) As are the bathrooms, both with bathtubs.

We setup several fires with everything provided by the owner. Speaking of which, the owner was very kind, welcoming, accomodating and responsive. Definitely one of the main reasons we'll be back.

The resort itself has a private hot tub very close to the condo and a pool (3' to 5'), hot tub and sauna further off, both beautifully decorated with wood accents. The Black Bear Inn was under renovations during our stay, but we enjoyed tavern appetizers and a great selection of local and well known beers at the Clubhouse.

We didn't make it to the ski resort this time, as we planned for snow tubing if it opened. We were looking for a nice getaway and found exactly what we were looking for. Planning to come back for skiing and snow fun for sure!

Perfect last-minute ski getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two boys (12 and 15), and I live in DC and decided to take a quick local ski trip for a few days before Christmas and had heard good things about Blue Knob. We looked on VRBO and saw that Ben's place was available but I wasn't sure if he'd be able to accommodate us for the next day. To my surprise, Ben accepted our reservation right away and even drove up the next morning to make sure everything was in order after the previous renter's stay. He gave us detailed information with driving directions and on how to enter the unit with the keypad lock. He also made sure we knew to bring our own bedding and towels for our stay, including extra towels for the indoor pool/hot tub (good call). His unit was very clean, nicely decorated, and very convenient as it is on the first floor right near the parking lot. Coffee, tea, cocoa, and even wine was provided for our use--a very nice treat. Lots of paper towels, toilet paper, and garbage bags were stocked as well. They have a wall-mounted flat screen tv with cable and a Roku and my 12-year-old loved playing the Wii. My boys were fighting over the super comfy recliner in the living room and loved the tall captain's bed in the second bedroom. The wifi worked great and could easily handle all four of us on our devices. We were glad to be able to have our dog with us as it would have been hard to find her a sitter at such short notice. Not having to pay a huge fee to have her with us was also a bonus.

We had all our ski gear in our truck so we drove up each day to the mountain ourselves instead of taking the shuttle van. It is only a five minute drive and we were able to park right outside the door of the lodge even when arriving there around 11:00. We read that if you do want to take the shuttle on weekdays you need to request it from the condo office but it runs every ten minutes or so on weekends.

We didn't try either of the restaurants at the condo complex on this stay but enjoyed eating lunch and having a beer at the pub by the fire at the ski lodge. We did use the indoor pool and hot tub which was nice.

There is no cleaning service with this unit but they have plenty of supplies for cleaning and I appreciated doing a quick clean myself instead of paying a cleaning fee. We even left a pair of skis (pretty dumb of us!) which Ben offered to return or send to us. His communication has been outstanding.

We enjoyed our getaway to BK very much and will rent from Ben again without hesitation.
