Recent Pittsburgh & Its Countryside reviews

  • 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."

  • Absolutely Beautiful!!!

    "As with some of the other reviewers I have used VRBO numerous times and have never been disappointed. This property at Southwind is by far the most impressive!! Beautiful!!! The furnishing and decor are appropriate for the location and style of the townhouse. You can tell a lot of thought went into choosing them. The kitchen has everything you could need. Master bedroom and bath are truly amazing. There were 11 of us staying in the house ranging from 4 to 75 and you would never know there were that many people in the house. With it being a 3 level house you could always find a quiet spot. You are on top of the mountain so the view from the decks and patio are gorgeous. We were there for our sons wedding so we did not get to enjoy or take advantage of the amenities of Southwind or all Seven Springs has to offer. Brian was awesome and easy to work with on making our reservations for the townhouse. They provided the bed linens ,towels,also had paper towels, toilet paper and small soaps there for us. Seriously folks, if you are looking for a gorgeous yet homey and comfortable place to stay with a group of people stop looking. You have found it!!!!!"

  • Great Weekend Getaway!

    "My wife and I stayed here for a weekend away and it was a great place to stay. It's the perfect size for two, and has a great location to restaurants, stores and shops in town. The only reason I wouldn't suggest staying here is so it's not booked next time my wife and I decide to take a weekend away! If you're looking for a romantic getaway, this is the place to go."

  • Wonderful Thanksgiving Getaway

    "My husband and I stayed at Paddler's Lane Chalet over the Thanksgiving holiday in 2013, and I'm finally getting around to writing a review of Paddler's Lane now that the hub-bub of the holidays are over with. First, we choose Paddler's Lane because we wanted some much-needed rest and relaxation at a location that would be peaceful, serene, and far away from the hustle-bustle. We were not disappointed in our choice with Paddler's Lane. The chalet is gorgeous - the photos truly don't do it justice. And the location right on the river is perfect. The train traffic, while definitely noisy, didn't bother my husband and I. In fact, we found it interesting and a bit of a novelty to watch the trains go whizzing by. We slept just great - the bedroom we used (the river side bedroom) was comfy. The bedroom on the other side of the chalet looked to be equally comfy/cozy. Everything from the bathrooms to the kitchen (and everything in between) was spotless. We didn't meet Robin but we fell in love with Dan. He was/is the perfect host - friendly without being intrusive. As well, he was very attentive to any need. Truly, we can't say enough wonderful things about Dan. We both said that he's the type of guy you'd love to have as a neighbor and hang out with. Just a really good guy. The same goes for the chalet itself - the furniture was all very comfortable, the tvs were great, the fireplace ROCKED (we had wonderful fires every night), and there are a ton of DVD movies to choose from to watch. The area is really charming. Confluence is even smaller than we had anticipated, but again, we loved that. And if you want/need a "larger city", Uniontown is a very short drive away. We went to Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob and had a WONDERFUL time - even a visit late in the season such as our's was super. One last suggestion - go to The Stone House Restaurant and Country Inn for dinner - the food was simply amazing and it's not far of a drive. We will definitely be coming back to Paddler's Lane in the future - we want to explore the beautiful area in the summer or early fall when we can make use of the hiking trails and all the water activities available in the area."

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.
