Owner info

About the owner: I am a full time potter and an avid outdoor enthusiast. Besides whitewater kayaking and skiing I love to bicycle and have traveled by bike across Australia, New Zealand, England, Tasmania, Ireland, Scottland, Wales, the Isle of Mann and the Northeastern US. I also love to hike and dream of someday getting the tiime to Hike the entire Appliachian Trail as a thru-hiker

Why the Owner Chose Confluence, PA, USA:
The Laurel Highlands of Pennsylvania is an outdoor mecca. It boasts the best whitewater kayaking and rafting in the Eastern US, has the longest rails to trail bicycle trail in the states and an amazing array of hiking and mountain biking trails. We are surrounded by 4 State parks and our four ski resorts keep us active for the winter season.Being adjacent to Ohiopyle state park we have a front row seat to all of these things. We are secluded but close enough to the small towns of Confluence and Ohiopyle that anything we need can be easily obtained. In addition, we are located close to Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob and these along with the other cultural attractions available just an hour and a half away in PLittsburgh we feel we have the best of all worlds
