Great Multi-Generational Family Gathering Place

  • 4 of 5

We have rented several large homes over the years for our family reunion and this place exceeded our expectations. With 30 people we didn't feel like we were on top of one another and with five full bathrooms and the half bathroom at the pool, bathroom usage wasn't an issue. Even though most bedrooms are not large, the three first floor commons area space for gathering is perfect, as well as the large outdoor patio/pool/carport area. The kitchen is small but there are two large refrigerators, a lot of items for cooking, and plenty of tables (& chairs) inside and outside. The basement does have a musty smell but I'm guessing it is not like that in the winter. Matt and Martin always responded promptly to our questions. Outside we enjoyed star gazing, fishing in the pond, playing cornhole, using the fire pit, and the large pool with a water slide. Area attractions include walking trails, Laurel Caverns, Fallingwater, Ohiopyle (rafting & Cucumber Falls), biking trails, Storybook Forest & Idlewild Park, and Fort Ligonier. If you are looking to stay at the Hilton, this isn't it, but if you're looking for a place that you can kick back and relax, then stay here.

No Deposit Returned

  • 2 of 5

I'm glad to hear other people have problems getting there deposits back. It will be a year in July and I'm still waiting. He did email me and tell me my deposit would be mailed but never received it. We had talked to the owner before our arrival about bringing our 5lb dog and he said he would require a $100.00 extra charge and would stop by and pick it up he never came by. The house was a little out dated and not clean but we all had a good time. The slide on the pool was not working and the little ice machine in the kitchen was useless & the kitchen could have been a little more equipped. Some of the beds were very uncomfortable, my oldest son slept on the floor. My kids enjoyed the fire pit every evening.

NOT AN HONEST LANDLORD

  • 1 of 5

This property is very deceiving, by the pictures it looks great, but once you are there, everything is outdated and not in good shape. But the most astonishing thing is, the landlord does not return the deposits. Be careful because he will tell you it is on the mail and you never get it back. We are not the only ones who did not return the deposit. We were in his house the weekend of October 2nd, so it has already been more than two months passed and he keeps saying he will return it and to date, we have not received anything.

Owner's Response: Maria, We always do our best to accommodate our guests. Our goal is to make every stay a pleasant one. I apologize that our accommodations weren't to the level you expected. We try to offer a balance between an affordable home that can accommodate very large groups and not being too expensive that families can no longer afford it. I've attempted to reach out to you on several occasions to discuss why I did not return your security deposit. For your privacy I will not discuss this online. We have been in the short term rental business for over 3 decades and every guest is important to us. I look forward to speaking to you in the future. Sincerely, Mr. Yurchison

House not as listed

  • 1 of 5

There are many discrepancies in this listing. The number of bedrooms is not correct. There is no pool table. All the beds are not queen sized - at least 4 of them are full sized and all of them are very hard and uncomfortable. There are signs all over the house listing the things that guests should not do, such as napping on the couch. The rugs looked dirty and the ceiling fan in the living room was so wobbly and noisy that we were afraid it would fall out of the ceiling. There was a musty smell on the lower level. To top it all off, despite numerous written promises from the owner that our deposit would be returned after our stay, it is now more than 3 months later and he has not returned our money. I would not recommend this vacation home under any circumstances.

Owner's Response: Nancy, I apologize that your group had issues with our home. Our goal as owners is to have you return to stay with us year after year like over 70% of our guests do. You are correct as I didn't update the number of bedrooms the home has from being 9 previously to now having 10. We also removed the pool table to add the additional lounge area with the additional flat screen on the lower level. I have updated these items on the website. The beds in the home are all slightly different and I apologize if the mattresses you slept on was too firm. We do have several signs in the home in order to reduce confusion and provide instruction for various issues that previous guests have had questions about. I have fixed the wobbly ceiling fan in the living room and want to thank you for bringing it to my attention. We have notified the cleaning service to take extra care when cleaning in order to eliminate the musty smell you have described on the lower level. You and I had several discussions regarding the forfeiture of the security deposit. I can not return a security deposit if the group brings a pet with them. It clearly states this in our short term rental contract. Sincerely, Mr. Yurchison

Perfect winter getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in a new rental in over 20 years. So we were a little nervous. As soon as we got there we felt right at home! It is huge! Plenty of space for 25+ people. The pictures on the website do not give it any justice.

There are so many rooms to socialize & spread out. The guys had a big flat screen to watch the football games, the girls could watch their shows in the family room & the kids even had 2 different TVs they could watch their shows on. It is the perfect home for a large group getaway.

The owner was always quick to respond to any texts or messages I left him & extremely nice.

We will be booking our summer trip also & hopefully if available, all of our winter trips.

Thanks Again!!

Fantastic home for faily vacation !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The listing was spot on in terms of the accommodations for our large family. The girls really loved being in the lower level room that accommodated the five girls under age 10. Although most of our time was spent on the patio, the rain days drove the young ones into watch videos on the big screen in large family room.

Although I overlooked that only linens were provided , I did discuss with Matt in plenty of time to bring own. The kitchen had everything we needed to feed our hungry brood, including kitchen towels and cloths.

The property was properly clean and was in the process of completing additional improvements .Matt and Marty couldn't have been more helpful and prompt delivering whatever we needed, wood, sweeper,etc.

our friends and family that visited this week couldn't believe we had found such a great place when my family is on the West Coast and down South. Definitely everyone would recommend this house.

It was nostalgic to once again golf Seven Springs and Hidden Valley. Reminded me of the plush, green courses we golfed when visiting our son in Seattle.

Out of the Fire Restaurant was excellent !!!! Take you own wine,beer,etc. they provide frosted glasses for small corking fee.

Disappointed that children under 10 couldn't do zip line but the slide in the pool made up for that. Fun go carts, animal farm as well. Easy access to Pgh via turnpike and Parkway also provided rainy day activities for the children.
