About Shari DeNardo

U. S. Recreational Properties is a developer of high quality rustic-styled vacation homes in locations offering great access to a variety of recreational pursuits and is the first to offer fractional ownership opportunities in the Laurel Highlands.

The USREC partnership is comprised of a handful of families who enjoy the outdoors and nature, and who have traveled to Wyoming, Montana, Colorado and Alaska among other exciting destinations. Their appreciation of nature, enthusiasm for the outdoor lifestyle and adventurous recreation inspired them to form USREC, thus to create an opportunity for others to enjoy the same.

Shari DeNardo purchased this house in 2009

Why Shari DeNardo chose Laurel Highlands

The Laurel Highlands caters to the outdoor enthusiast offering a vast array of activities for every type of traveler: those who love the thrill of white water rafting and downhill skiing; those who enjoy fishing and hunting; those who are more conservative in their travels and are interested history, covered bridges and wineries; and, of course, those who gravitate towards resort vacationing, spas and golf courses. It has something for everyone!

What makes this house unique

This property is unique because of its close proximity to resorts and recreation, yet it is nestled among a forest of trees, on a mountaintop that is peaceful, serene and tranquil. It encourages quality time and relaxation. The only noise you hear is the rustling of the trees and the occasional whinny from the horses on the neighboring ranch.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for such a great place to stay. We all very much enjoyed our visit this weekend. Everyone loved the house and can't wait to do this again next year. Everything was great. Thank you!

Fun Family Weekend at Sundance

  • 5 of 5

Just sent Sharon a quick not to tell her how much we enjoyed our stay at Sundance. Our party was thrilled with the accommodations and the beauty of the area. Our more adventurous guests enjoyed a day at Seven Springs either tubing or skiing - resort was an easy 15-20 minute drive away. We will certainly look forward to a future visit.

-Kitchen well stocked.

-Floor-Plan was perfect for our 18 guests.

-Home was clean and comfy.

Amazing Group Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family stayed her over New Year's weekend. The house is delightful. Every bit the same as it appeared online. Beautifully decorated -- it was even decorated for Christmas which was a nice surprise. Kitchen is well equipped, large bedrooms, places for everyone to gather, firewood for the outside firepit provided. We didn't want to leave. And very convenient to ski and tubing areas (we did both which are just a few minutes away) and groceries/restaurants. Also only about 20 minutes to Falling Water which was a great morning trip one day.

A gorgeous fall getaway at the Sundance at Fern Mountain cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 5 couples have stayed in many lovely places in the last 25 years. This stay was one of our very favorites and we are planning to return again next fall. The well appointed cabin is situated in a secluded, wooded area but yet easy to get to and lots of close-by attractions, ie Shanksville, Ligoniere and others. I would highly recommend this cabin and the Homeaway website.

great group escape location

  • 5 of 5

i've been renting redwood and sundance together for 4 years now, for both a large family gathering (grandparents through toddlers) and a guys golf trip. the houses are great for both and our annual return is a clear indicator of how much we enjoy them. the layout is great for a bunch of adults and the yards work well for outdoor activities. we expect to be back in 2017.

We had a great stay here. The place was beautiful and the owners were amazing. I left my wallet there and they actually drove out of their way to give it to me. Very happy with this place and works come back again.
