                              Our property is located in the small village of Listonburg. It is 3 minutes from Addison and Route 40 and 5 minutes from Confluence.

Other places located within 30 minutes include Laurel Caverns, Ohiopyle, Fort Necessity, and Uniontown, PA. Deep Creek Lake and the Wisp Resort in Garret County Maryland, Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, and Seven Springs Resort are all drives of 25 minutes or less from the home. Drives of 40 minutes will take you to Somerset and an abundance of sites and activities including the Flight 93 Memorial, Quecreek Rescue Site, and Mountain Playhouse. The home itself sits on the banks of Whites Creek and anyone who loves the sights and sounds of rivers will love relaxing on the back patio to gentle sounds of Whites Creek. Activities abound in any season in our region from kayaking, rafting, and biking to hiking, bird watching, hunting, and fishing. Historically important sites such as Fort Necessity and Flight 93 as well as local museums abound. Boating, sailing, and swimming are minutes away. Antique buffs will love the many antique shops in the area. Fall is an especially active time with festivals such as Mountain Craft Days, Pumpkinfest, the Springs Folk Festival, and Autumn Glory Days just to name a few. Winter brings skiing, snowboarding, and ice fishing and hunting. This home is in close proximity to all these activities and is a great year round vacation rental.

                               

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2011

                              About the owner: My husband and I were born and raised in the area and when this home came on the market in the summer of 2011 we realized what a great place it would be for vacationers to enjoy when visiting our area. We especially wanted to make it a home that families could feel comfortable using. With two small children we understand the challenges of traveling with kids and we hope that you find our home to be a great place to bring the kids so everyone can have a vacation.

                              Why the Owner Chose Confluence:
                              This property is in a small village that at one time was a mining town. With the mine closed, it now has only a handful of homes. It is creekside to a small stream that runs from the mountains and is great for trout fishing. The house itself is close to Route 40 so you are far enough away from the hustle and bustle but not too far from the amenities that come with populated areas. It is a home for all seasons and close to all the activities but in a more secluded setting. We have renovated the home so it has modern conveniences but still retains its charm.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              We hope your stay will be relaxing and enjoyable. We have tried to make the house comfortable and we promise it will be clean. We have bed bug covers on all beds and pillows. We want you to feel comfortable bringing your family and want to take some of the stress away by offering this complete home.
