Recent Pittsburgh & Its Countryside reviews

  • Thanksgiving Family Reunion

    "We spent Thanksgiving at Mountain Mansion - from Wed 11/27 to Sat 11/30 - we had a group of 26 including preschoolers, teens, mid40's & senior citizens. The home was very adequate for such a large group - the three different levels enabled us to "separate" from kids from time to time and yet share our meals together. We had a great time and would perhaps stay in warmer weather to take advantage of all the surrounding venues. Part of our family initially came from Somerset Pa - the location was great because we got together from Ohio, Md and Va. My only suggestion would be a second refrigerator perhaps in the garage during hot weather."

  • The Diamond in the Rough!!

    "We arrived late at night and Diane had everything setup for us. Fridge was already full of the items needed for the morning breakfast. The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed for our vacation. My two teenage daughters loved the loft and privacy. I was amazed how close it was to everything we needed to do. The Zoo, Laurel Caverns, 911 memorial, and the city. Thank you Diane!!!!"

  • Girls Weekend!

    "This house was just awesome! There were 12 adults and we fit comfortably. It was a great spot for a weekend getaway. Plenty of ways to have indoor and outdoor fun. The house was in a beautiful and quiet area, perfect for relaxing. Joyce was very easy to get along with and communicated very well. Any questions I had were answered in a timely fashion. I would definitely stay here again!"

  • Great price and a great place!

    "I stayed here this past weekend with a group of 5 friends and we were all so happy with the place. The weekend rate was VERY reasonable and the condo is the perfect size. We also very pleased that every bed (even the bunks) were so comfortable. I will definitely recommend this place to friends and hope to stay again next year."

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.
