The Yough Treehouse (YTH) is located in the town of Confluence, near Lucky Dog Cafe and Riversport--in the heart of the Laurel Highlands Mountains. YTH sits on 2 acres along the Youghiogheny River. Surrounded by 50 acres of protected woods, at the end of a one lane road but within walking distance to town and 400 yds to the Great Allegheny Passage bike trail. We now also own the 50 acres of woods across from the house. It's yours to enjoy! Our quiet, secluded home is custom built, well equipped and clean. The house is 1500 sq feet with an open floor plan in the kitchen/living area. Also on the ground floor is a full bath. Two steps up there is a spacious master bedroom with a king bed and a second bedroom with twins. Above is large loft with a queen bed and full sleeper sofa-a room with a view. The house has a big front porch and just off the well equipped kitchen is the riverside deck with a propane grill. Enjoy the natural beauty of the area relaxing on our spacious deck overlooking the river. Listen for geese, ducks and other birds while soaking the secluded hot tub. Fly fish for trout in the well stocked tailwaters of the dam in our back yard. Watch for heron, osprey or if you are lucky the bald eagles. Make a day swimming and boating at the Yough Lake. Take a break from your ride through from DC to Pittsburgh on the bike trail or spend the day biking shorter routes to nearby Ohiopyle, Connellsville, Rockwood or Meyersdale. Make this the perfect retreat for trips to the 2 Frank Lloyd Wright homes (Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob) nearby. We are centrally located to the ski resorts (Wisp, Seven Springs & Hidden Valley). Enjoy rafting, canoeing and kayaking right out our door-or for more adventure in nearby Ohiopyle or Friendsville, MD.

Year Purchased: 1996
About the owner: I grew up in Confluence and developed a love of the outdoors, which turned into a career racing kayaking and eventually how I met my husband. We purchased the 'Treehouse' in 1996, started a family and lived until 2010 when we moved to nearby Morgantown, WV. We were heartbroken with the thought of selling our beloved home. One day a good friend, who knew of our dilemma said, 'Why don't you make it a vacation rental and keep it?!'. And instantly our problem of parting with our home was solved and we were on our way to making it an ideal vacation home. Renting our home as been incredibly rewarding, as we love to make people happy and we are proud to share our much loved home and the wonders of the Laurel Highlands with others.
What we miss most about our home are: hosting friends on the deck, making pizzas on the kitchen island, hot tubbing after a long x country ski or bike trip, seeing a pair of bald eagles diving for breakfast out our kitchen window and the convenient access to the outdoors. That is why we are sharing this unique spot with others. We think you'll love it too.
Why the Owner Chose Confluence: The Treehouse has an unbeatable location and the perfect layout for a small multi generational family, a single family or a small group of friends. Perched on the Yough River, moments to the GAP bike trail and surrounded by 50 acres of woods, yet within walking distance to town. The Treehouse feels secluded yet nearby. The house is beautiful, well appointed and clean. The large deck, hot tub and newly landscaped riverside fire ring patio are meant for family and friend quality time. Come to the mountains to relax and enjoy.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Some of the unique benefits of staying here are: the convenience to town, the quiet, the surrounding woods, strolling down to Lucky Dog Cafe for dinner, soaking in the claw foot master bath tub--or better yet, the hot tub, drinking coffee while reading the paper on the deck, basically no traffic on our one lane road, the eagles, heron and osprey, the fishing and the proximity to the bike trail, oh and the river!
