The cottage at Misty Mountain Way is part of a fourteen acre estate situated on the crest of the Laurel Hill Summit with 100 acres of hiking trails. A romantic, peaceful retreat with an unexpected privacy, the cottage boasts a warm and cozy atmosphere. Usually the word cozy is used to convey a politically correct description of a very small uncomfortable area. In this instance, the same word used more accurately describes a tasteful and efficient use of space, without sacrificing warmth. The working kitchen has granite counters and a Viking stove. The intimate dining room, along with the rest of the cottage, is decorated with our favorite antiques we brought home from England. A Bose surround system is shared by the bedroom and sitting areas warmed by a wood burning fireplace. The bath has salon hair products, hair dryer, curling iron, flat iron and other toiletries. The queen size bed has the ultimate in Belgian linens. There is a variety of DVDs for your viewing pleasure.
There are numerous outdoor seating areas to enjoy all aspects of relaxing with nature. Enjoy the sunrise peeking over the summit from the stone patio or the spectacular sun set from the deck or pond. Chairs at the pond provide solitude as frogs warm on the lilly pads in the summer. Relax and lean back in the adirondack chairs at the fire pit while gazing at stars or the moon rising, while a fire warms the cool mountain air. In the fall enjoy the spectacular foliage, sipping a cocktail on the deck, while listening to elk bugling from the adjacent 5000 acre Rachelwood Reserve. Relaxation begins when you arrive as you feel peace, quiet and tranquility at Misty Mountain Way. Nestled in a sea of ferns, buried in a forest, you will be rejuvenated.

About the owner: Sam is a western Pennsylvania native. Cate is from the Gulf Coast of Mississippi. We both love the seasons and the richness each has to offer. The area allows us to enjoy skiing, biking, hiking and photography. We have a labrador retriever, Cali Jane. Cate is a Le Cordon Blue chef and is certified in plant based nutrition, has a passion for food and shares wonderful tastes with all who pass her way. We live on the property and love sharing it with our friends and family.
Why the Owner Chose Seven Springs: The property was purchased ten years ago as a work in progress. Over time the main house, the cottage, the art studio and as well as the grounds have been reclaimed. The location is close to many attractions as well as being only 65 miles from downtown Pittsburgh. You have the mountain escape and the beauty of Ligonier at your fingertips. Unlimited hiking trails at your doorstep offer miles of privacy, however you navigate. This was initially a private home, we decided it was meant to be shared with those who love the Laurel Highlands as well as privacy.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: The unique benefits of staying at the cottage at Misty Mountain Way are endless. It has been described by one guest as peace on earth. Another described it as therapy from the daily grind. You will find the solitude and simplicity of mountain life which seems to be overlooked daily in the hurried pace most of us live. You will be able to unwind and relax while we meet your every need. The property will provide a refreshing retreat from the stresses of life.
