  • The perfect winter retreat!

    "We really enjoyed our stay at this ski in/ski out condo and felt it was the perfect winter retreat. The condominium was very clean, the furnishings were quite comfortable and it was perfect for a large family. I loved how we could put on our boots right at the back door, grab our skis off the patio and be on a trail with just a few steps. Upon returning, their are hooks for hanging your coats, gloves etc. It was very nice and convenient! Definitely a nice change from the main lodge. I look forward to reserving this condo again."

    "We had a great time at Seven Springs and really enjoyed staying at The Mountain Dog Retreat. The condo was very clean and well supplied and furnished. We would definitely recommend and stay there again when returning to seven springs."

  • Great Owner and Townhouse

    "We recently stayed at this Southwind Townhouse and by far this has been the easiest transaction with an owner, especially with the hoops we had to jump through last year to stay at another Southwind property I found on VRBO. All business done via email, everything functions with access to and fro as expected, no surprises, no issues, super clean and comfortable. When you enter this property, you feel like your more of the guest in a friend's home than a renter. Main reason being the warm and relaxed feel of the place, perfect for the outdoor oriented complimented with all the conveniences of home. Upside is the fantastic views from the family room bay window, much better than last year. We had a party of 5, all skiers, who closely watched the forecast leading up our departure from MD. Here we finally found a true ski-in and ski-out place to stay, but no snow to be found anywhere at Southwinds. I'm not blaming the owner for no snow, but at the same time don't understand when there's snow making equipment on the trail behind the townhouse, why there's not being snow made as was done on other numerous trails at the resort. For the record, this place is exactly as portrayed in the photos, open the back basement door from a well appointed ski mud room, and you're in business. Due to the lack of snow, we converted the garage as our mud room and had to take a short walk down to the end of the street to hit the main run of 7 Springs - not a tragedy, just a disappointment. With having to book these places so far in advance, it's a roll of the dice for snow! OK, so why not a 5 star place. As the guy paying the bill I expected a better night sleep. When you enter the master suite you look at the bed and you will question if that's not a double instead of a queen. First night in I clunked my wife in the knee and we both tossed and turned both nights - she swore it was a double bed. Kids slept great with no complaints (lucky them!). I would have paid a little more to get a better night sleep, so would love to return to a king bed."

  • Remarkable Experience

    "I, along with 20 other close friends, rented the cabin for somewhat of a reunion. The property was gorgeous--it was far more spacious and accommodating than I could have imagined. Before I go into detail regarding the cabin itself, I have to make special mention of the people representing the cabin. The property manager was extremely helpful and generous, plus the person I spoke to via e-mail regarding the cabin was fantastic. The cabin itself had countless comfortable places to sleep, it had more than enough space and diversity among its rooms to accommodate any type of gathering and it's in a beautiful location. The cabin was well stocked with everything you could possibly need sans food, which made coordinating essentials much, much easier. There are also countless places to sit and relax without the cabin feeling crowded with furniture. They've hit a perfect balance. Beyond that, we stayed during a particularly cold weekend and the cabin was incredibly warm without even needing to use the fireplace. I was very impressed at how comfortable we felt throughout the entire weekend. Lastly, I have to say this place has it all regardless of what you're looking for. There's place for socializing both inside and outside, areas in which to hike and they even had plenty of televisions if you're staying with some hardcore gamers. It's actually hard to describe how great this place was in the amount of space provided on the site. I'll wrap things up just by saying this: we had people flying in from across the country as part of this reunion and the cabin could have gone a long way in determining the quality of this monumental weekend, for better or for worse. I can happily say that the cabin greatly assisted in making it a reunion none of us will ever forget. It was the perfect find."

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.
