Recent Pittsburgh & Its Countryside reviews

  • Nothing better than a condo directly on the slopes!

    "I rented the condo for the weekend as a Christmas gift to my kids, ages 16 & 20. The details to attention in this condo were far and above my expectations. It felt warm and cozy. The working fireplace was an added bonus, as many of the units at Seven Springs have non-working fireplaces. The kitchen was well stocked with enough pots and pans and serving dishes to feed the entire family. The best benefit of this unit is that it sits directly on the slopes. We could slide into our boots and be skiing off the back patio in a matter of minutes. I would highly recommend this unit for any family looking to escape from the craziness of everyday life."

  • Secluded, beautiful setting

    "Five of us stayed at the cabin for 6 days. The cabin was more than we expected. Although secluded in the woods, it had many of the conveniences of home. There was a dishwasher, as well as laundry and a drier. Since we engaged in many wet activities, the laundry facilities were very useful. Although it was a wet summer, the porches and the woods around the cabin had almost no mosquito problems. There is a flat screen TV with lots of channels, but why use it when there is so much natural beauty around. There is no air conditioning. Although we were at the cabin in August, we were quite comfortable. We brought extra fans but did not need them. The cabin has an outdoor fire pit as well as a grill. There is dry firewood under a tarp. There is poor cellphone reception, but the owners made the cabin telephone land line available. When we were not rafting or hiking, we made use of the kitchen to cook the tasty wild mushrooms that grow nearby in profusion. The cabin is affiliated with Beaver Creek Anglers and we had fun learning to do fly fishing. There were a lot of large trout in the nearby stream. We did not catch any, but we learned a lot from our fishing guide. (My home in Maryland is near a trout stream and I am going to practice my new fly fishing skills on the Gunpowder River.) The cabin overlooks a creek so you can have a nice view while you eat dinner. You do not see other people unless you drive into Ohiopyle. There are hiking trails right near the cabin, but the river and waterfalls of Ohiopyle Park are a short drive away."

  • Fun House

    "A good time was had by all. The house is so unique. The rustic feel put everyone in a relaxed mood and the 'stuffed animals" were quite a conversation starter. The view is spectacular. Very well supplied with all the essentials needed in the kitchen and bathrooms. I would recommended this house for a large group."

  • Amazing place!

    "We rented out the lower unit as a place to stay for a birthday weekend. What a phenomenal time we had! The property was perfect and everything we could have hoped for. The location couldn't have been more ideal being so close to everything! We love that even though we rented the bottom unit we still had access to the rooftop deck which provided the most amazing view of the beautiful city of Pittsburgh! The space was immaculate and felt just like home. Would definitely return upon future trips! Thank you!!"

Pittsburgh & Its Countryside Travel Tips

Visiting Pittsburgh, One of America’s Best Cities

Pittsburgh is regularly voted one of the best cities in the U.S. It was recently ranked 29th in the world’s best cities to live in. A vacation in Pittsburgh area condos will confirm that. It is easy to get to the area with its excellent International airport and two interstate highways, I-379 an I-579. There are also major roads throughout the city and surrounding area. The weather averages in the mid-80s Fahrenheit in summer, falling to the low-20s Fahrenheit in winter. It is the nation’s 13th largest city and largest inland port.

The area is a haven for those with a passion for snow. The skiing, snowmobiling, and variety of winter sports available keep visitors returning year on year but there is more to the area than just a winter wonderland.

There is More to Pittsburgh Than the Steelers

There is much to occupy visitors to the Pittsburgh area resorts around this charming city. Those looking to soak up some of the history of this area will want to see the Old Economy Village, a Christian communal society, dating from the 19th century. The Seldom Seen Mine gives visitors the opportunity to learn more about the working conditions of the local coal mines. One of the nation’s biggest tragedies in the 1800s was the flooding of Johnstown that wiped out an entire city. This is memorialized at the Johnstown Flood National Memorial. In memory of a more recent tragedy, the Memorial to those who died on flight 93 honors the crew and passengers who bought down the plane on September 11th, 2001. The memorial is maintained by local residents until a permanent memorial is built.

The Meadowcroft Rockshelter and Museum of Rural Life in Washington County is a National Historic Landmark. This 200-acre area includes a recreated 19th-century village. A section of US-40, the first federally funded road, runs past an array of historic sites like Fort Necessity, General Braddock’s Grave and includes some wonderful stagecoach stops. Fort Necessity commemorates the first battle in the career of one very famous American, George Washington. Visitors should not overlook a trip to Titusville to visit the first oil well in the U.S. The museum and park here include a full scale replica of the well, and the train tour gives a chance to learn more while seeing the sights. Kids will love the Trolley Museum and McConnell’s Mill State park provides great hiking in the gorge; it features a 1870s' style covered bridge as well as beautiful scenery, including waterfalls.

Pittsburgh for Outdoor Activites

The city of Pittsburgh is perfectly placed as a city vacation spot with plenty of outdoor action on your doorstep. Visitors should include a trip down the New River Gorge National River and visit the Allegheny National Forest with close to 520,000 acres of recreation land available for great activities and amazing scenery. While here, visit Allegheny Portage Railroad to find out how a canal boat can go over a mountain. Take time to see Kinzua Dam and Allegheny Reservoir, spanning the border between western Pennsylvania and New York. At the Lauren Caverns, visitors can tour the caves; try spelunking and rappelling at this 430-acre geological park. It’s Pennsylvania’s biggest cave!

Learn about the history of Railroaders at a museum in Altoona dedicated to the workers who helped shape America. At Altoona, visitors should also see the famous Horseshoe Curve, a marvel of engineering dating from 1854. For outdoor sports such as hiking, biking and whitewater rafting, visit Ohiopyle State Park.

Pittsburgh Area Condos are Luxurious Homes

For visitors choosing Pittsburgh Area vacation rentals, the choice of properties is impressive. Here, visitors will find ideal locations and bright spacious accommodations. Many properties are pet-friendly and welcome families with dogs. There is a huge selection of great homes, and owners make an effort not just to equip their homes, but to include the extras such as large-screen televisions, DVD playerss, and even wireless internet access. Every care is taken to ensure that their home is your home.
