This creekside home provides the perfect spot for a quiet, secluded retreat. As the name suggests, this charming house sits in a wooded glen next to a tranquil, stocked mountain stream. Inside you'll find spacious accommodations including a dining/living room area, full kitchen, sunroom, 2 bathrooms, 4 bedrooms, a second-floor sitting room and laundry room. And since you’re just a mile from town, it’s just a short drive or bike ride to Ligonier’s many shops and eateries.
Rustic elegance on the banks of the Loyalhanna Creek. Fall asleep to the sounds of the babbling brook in one of the house’s four bedrooms.
The Living Room is large and spacious with its comfortable furniture, working fireplace, and flat-screen television. It is the definition of relaxation. The roomy kitchen will allow you to indulge your inner chef as you prepare meals for the ones you love. Situated right off the living room, the dining room features a old-fashioned country dining room set, perfect for a memorable family gathering. If you want a spot to play a board game with the kids or just escape with a warm cup of tea, the sunroom’s the place to be.
Fire up the stone barbeque, stretch out in an Adirondack chair, or just stroll around the spacious grounds that surround the Creekside house. The kids will love running around the yard, playing on the play set, or exploring down by the creek. Plenty of fishing rods for your use in the stocked creek with bait available in two local shops.

Bigger and Better than It Appeared!
Beautiful home, tastefully decorated with lots of space and safe for the kiddos. Right beside a lovely creek, and near all of the restaurants and amenities of Ligonier. Hope to come back when the weather's warm!
Another amazing Christmas in this wonderful house...and this time we had snow!
House was clean and beds were comfy. Supplies like shampoo, hand soap, trash bags, etc. were available. Loved having washer & dryer. This was our 2nd Christmas at Creekside and we were thrilled to wake up to a covering of snow Christmas morning. Many games were played around the large dining room table and great conversations shared in the living room and Sun room. Loved the amazing views of the snow and creek from the Sun room. This is such a special house and we hope to return for another Christmas one day! Bev is awesome to work with too.
We are so thrilled that you and your family had special memories at Creekside. We hope to see you again in the future!
A charming, cozy cottage!
We loved the house and the grounds! So conveniently located to all the activity in Ligonier. The kitchen was a great size and so well stocked with all the right pans, dishes and cooking utensils. The porch was a morning retreat with coffee...so sweet! During the month we were there, we used the air conditioners only two days; the fans were great! We enjoyed the swing and all the outdoor furniture as well as the fire pit. Perfect for a S'Mores night! Landscapers were there every week mowing and vacuuming up fallen leaves. We loved the house and hope to be back next year!!
Thank you so much for staying at our cottage in Ligonier! We are thrilled you had a great time and we hope to see you next year!
Relaxing and cozy.
Love the property! Kids enjoyed the creek, got a little fishing in, and enjoyed the house with all of its amenities. Comfy beds, plush towels, and little touches of home made this the nicest house we've rented yet. Beats out hotels any day of the year! We would absolutely stay here again in the summer, as it's so close to Idlewild. Thank you for a great stay!
Beautiful creekside getaway
First the good, and there's a lot of good. This is a gorgeous cottage: tastefully and thoughtfully decorated, well-equipped with everything needed for cooking and serving meals, lots of space for a large group like ours (four adults and four kids). It has steps down to the creek for wading and skipping stones; there's a grill for cooking out and a fire pit for making s'mores. It's very convenient to downtown Ligonier and Idlewild Park. We really enjoyed ourselves here and would be happy to return.
But, it would not be completely honest to review this house and not mention that the warnings in the house instructions about food storage are there for a good reason. We had a bag of bread nibbled open (apparently putting food away means locking it in solid containers, not just sealing it in a bag!) and we spotted the small furry culprits themselves running through the dining room. So, if you're squeamish about mice, you might want to wait until after a visit from the exterminator. Otherwise, this is a lovely spot.
Perfect time and place............
We were blessed to return to this beautiful property after a three year absence. Once again it provided for all our needs and wants. It is beautifully maintained and the property manager and owner are very attentive to clients and all the amenities provided. What's not to love about Ligonier...recently voted in the top 10 of Kiplinger's 10 ten best places to retire?! I guess I did it backwards.....I spent the first 18years of my life here and now, thanks to Bev Watt and crew, , my family and I can come back and enjoy friends and family, relive old memories and create new ones. Our grandsons (ages 13, 10 and 7) absolutely LOVE the place. Never a dull moment, according to them. Pittsburgh is very accessible for day trips and the beauty and history of the area could keep one coming back for years in all seasons and there would still be new things to discover. Thank you for providing this beautiful property . We love it and it means so much on so many levels to be able to return.
By the way, all you foodies out there, Western PA has GREAT food for all palates. Don't miss the Pie Shoppe in Laughlintown.
Thank you for coming to Ligonier and choosing Creekside for a summer get away. We are thrilled that you and your family enjoyed your stay and we hope you return. It was our pleasure to host you! Please return soon.
