What makes this cabin 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 snort from the deer traveling along the trail.

A Rare Find

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the house itself is remarkable. Every room is tastefully decorated with a mountain cabin motif, from the furniture to the light fixtures to even the hand towels, creating a sense of rustic elegance. But without a doubt, the highlight of Rustic Ridge is the large, airy living room with its floor to ceiling windows featuring an amazing view of the mountains that goes on as far as the eyes can see. That view never got old. The spacious home comfortably accommodated my family with plenty of room and coziness for everyone! Rustic Ridge is satisfactory in every way for anything from a weekend getaway to a family/friends gathering. Moreover, Shari was a pleasure to work with, and I would definitely rent Rustic Ridge again in a heartbeat.

Best House Yet!

  • 5 of 5

Our family..14 in all..has been renting homes for our annual reunion for the past eight years now. Rustic Ridge was the best choice so far. Everyone agreed on that. We had plenty of room for seven adults and seven kids. And the house has everything..all the supplies, all the cooking utensils, all the silverware, all the plates, get the idea. They even had long forks for roasting marshmallows at the firepit. And the seeting is wonderful..beautiful views and fresh air. We had a great time.

Fantastic Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, relaxing week long stay at Rustic Ridge. From start to finish, everything about renting at this location was easy. Shari responded quickly to all our questions. Everything was clean and well-maintained. The property itself is truly spectacular. There was plenty of space for the twelve members of our group and we used every part of the house during our stay. We enjoyed that the house had an open layout, yet had enough space for privacy. All the bedrooms were quite comfortable. The living room area, recreation room, and loft lounge area were really comfortable as well. The dining area table for twelve was a definite plus for our group. The view out the living room/dining area floor to ceiling windows was spectacular. We thoroughly enjoyed gathering to capture the sunsets throughout the week. We made great use of the kitchen and utilized all three refrigerators in the house. With such a large group, the fact that we had access to two ovens proved to be a really big help. The spacious deck with its beautiful mountain views and plenty of seating in addition to the outdoor fire pit were real bonuses for our group. The location of the house is great...we took advantage of visiting Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob (really not to be missed if you have the time to visit these sites during your stay...just 30 minutes to get to Fallingwater, 10 minutes further to get to Kentuck Knob). We also enjoyed a great lunch out at the Out of the Fire Cafe. This group of college friends has been getting together for 35 years now, renting properties all along the east coast, and all the members of the group agree that this is the best property we have ever rented. You can't go wrong renting this property, no matter the time of year you are looking to rent.

Rustic Ridge is the perfect home for a large family gathering! Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful property! Rustic Ridge was clean with a sophisticated rustic lodge flavor that was warm and inviting. It was the perfect home for our family that gathered from across the country to celebrate the life of of a man who was a father, grandfather, great grandfather or brother. The kitchen easily accommodated multiple cooks and having two refrigerators in close proximity was a must when feeding 20 people. The large table accommodated nearly everyone at dinner time, with overflow seating very close by. The comfortable sleeping accommodations met our family's needs. The house is beautiful and well equipped and there was not a single person present who did not feel that way, however, what they loved the most was the outdoor space and the spectacular view. The fire circle was the gathering place for family ages 5 weeks old to 80, to eat gooey s'mores and share stories of a man we all loved. Perfect!

Rustic Ridge's easy access to the PA Turnpike will also be an appreciated benefit for many. It made our trip to Slippery Rock, PA for my Dad's memorial service a straight shot. Our family also took advantage of the amazing points of interest that were not far away; Frank Lloyd Wright's, Falling Water, and The Flight 93 Memorial. I highly recommend Rustic Ridge for a large group gathering! You won't be disappointed!

My overall impression of the property was a favorable one

  • 3 of 5

The overall Exsperience was alittle more to be desired. Unfortunately the first night the tv on the main floor did not get regular channels. The nba finals was on and we wanted to watch it in that space where we were more comfortable. We had to migrate downstairs to enjoy the game. If the tv is up there then it should have been working correctly. We did notify the owners but unfortunately the lack of telephone signals sometimes made it difficult to communicate. The second night there it rained we decided to enjoy one of the more popular amenities which was the pool table only to find out that the floor was flooding.After soaking up the flood in a panic not wanting to be blamed for anything. We did speak to the owners who navigated us to the sorce of the water. The walls in the furnace room was leaking badly out of a crack that looked like it had been fixed before. The owner did send someone to address the issue but by the time they arrived the rain had stopped. I have rented mountain properties before and always leave them clean and in great condition after this stay I feel like the owners should have called me to apologize for the inconveniences and tried to compensated for any issues. It. Just makes for good business. Not that I'm pointing the finger at anyone but it just makes good business to compensate customers if they didn't get a great stress free Exsperience or service .

Owner's Response: This individual was less than accurate and dishonest with his review. He was unable to follow the instructions on how to operate the TV in family room, however there were multiple other TV’s that were operating without issue. We tried to reach the renter immediately on multiple occasions but the renter did not answer his phone, nor the house line until the following morning at which point the renter admitted someone in his party successfully changed the TV source to proper HDMI setting. We did unfortunately experience excessive rain fall one evening and there was a foundation leak which obviously was not a result of the renter, nor would they have been considered responsible for the leak. Once we were notified, we had 3 individuals on site within an hour and the leak was addressed. We have had only 5 star reviews form every other renter prior to this individual, which should accurately portray the quality of property and property management. We also feel this individual wrote the review when his request to be compensated for the TV and basement leak inconvenience was denied.

Amazing property exceeded our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

This property was ideal for our family gathering. The home is very upscale and well maintained. The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking utensils, a commercial coffee machine and plenty of seating. Rustic Ridge was the nicest home we have stayed in while visiting the Laurel Highlands. The property manager was very accessible and we can't wait to come again. We hope to make a summer trip as the outdoor fire pit area will make great memories.
