Presidents Day weekend - 3 families

  • 5 of 5

Great times - easy lay out so kids and parents can be under 1 roof but split and playing. Geothermal running through the floors was awesome to come out of the cold and walk around.

Great Family fall retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed in the Laurel Highlands most falls for the last several years. This home was perfect. It provided lots of space and comfort. We have 3 married children with each having children. So with the 4 families at the home, we all could have separate parts of the home to occupy but yet be all together for entire family time as well. My married son said this was his favorite fall home that we have stayed in. Thank you Jack and Shari.

We trust we can stay again.

Roselle Park

Great Property for Family, Winter or Summer.

  • 5 of 5

Had 10 adults and 5 kids stay over 4th of July. Everyone had plenty of space to sleep with the 2br/ba downstairs, the 3br/2ba on the main floor and the upstairs open loft to the living room and 1br/ba.

Living space was massive, with an 8 person kitchen/breakfast bar open to both the Living Room and 8 person dining table. Living room has 2 doors that open up to the rear deck. Two separate seating areas, one off the wider part of the deck with a Propane Grill/Table and seating and another lounging area for 7+ near the hot tub. The deck continues around the side and wraps around the front of the house, where there are additional benches/chairs. Second living room/pool table/kitchen in the basement as well. Outside between the house and detached garage was a fire pit area, plenty of wood and chairs.

Pittsburg was about an hour, 40 minutes to FallingWater & Ohiopyle Areas and 20 minutes to Somerset, PA.

Could not have been happier with how helpful Shari and Jack were during our stay and they responded very quickly to our enquiries.
