Awesome stay for close group of friends

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was great. Very cozy enough room for all of my friends. Most of my friends said the pictures posted don't give the place any justice on how beautiful it is. We enjoyed and focused most of our time in the kitchen. It is open allowing you to talk to those in the dinning room along with living room. Don't forget the 8 chairs at the bar surrounding the kitchen counter.

We celebrated my birthday and I had friends from all over and everyone was satisfied with all the amenities. I would recommend this place and consider staying here again.

Thank you!

Perfect place for a relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect for our group of 12 to relax, unwind, and socialize. The layout with the house works well for groups, with an open dining/kitchen/living room area on the main floor and an additional family room downstairs. When some folks wanted to stay up later, they could go downstairs where the sound was isolated from most of the bedrooms. The kitchen was well-equipped with everything we needed to cook all meals. There was also a second kitchen downstairs that we did not use, but the second refrigerator came in handy! The house is about a mile from the Laurel Highlands hiking trail, as the owner informed us, which turned out to be one of the most beautiful trails I've ever seen. When we got home from a rainy day of hiking, it was perfect to be able to throw our muddy and wet clothes in the wash and relax by the living room fireplace.

We found everything to be incredibly clean and well-maintained, and the owner was available to answer all of our questions and explain the rather complex sound/TV system. Perhaps the only negative was that the internet was somewhat slow or spotty, but my argument was that we were here to relax and enjoy nature anyhow, so maybe that is actually a benefit.

The hot tub and porch were perfect places to gather, and it was nice that there were both covered and uncovered areas of the porch so it could really be used in all weather.

I would absolutely recommend staying here, and in fact we are considering booking again for next year's reunion.

Beautiful property with lots of room, lots of things to do, and lots of privacy.

  • 4 of 5


This is a beautiful home; so many amenities: the hot tub, the fire pit, the fishing lake, the pool table and ping pong table and darts, the beautiful partially-covered deck.

There was a lot of space for everyone to spread out (there were 11 adults and 3 small children).

They had corn hole and bocce ball, both of which we brought along ourselves.

The check-in and check-out process was very easy.

The owner called several times to make sure everything was OK.

Everything was very clean.

There were no spiders on the deck; it was well-cared for.

Very secluded, lots of privacy.

There were many, many pots and pans, both large and small; three crock pots; a waffle maker and a small mixer. However, there were no measuring cups or spoons.


There was really no way to get cool air from the air conditioner to the back bedrooms.

And there was (we think) mold in the basement fridge.

The basement smelled like animal.

We thought that 76 was too hot to keep the property.


We had a wonderful time and would definitely consider coming back again.

Great cabin for a group getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was excellent! A group of us stayed here for the weekend and it was perfect! Very spacious, fully equipped with a hot tub, gas grill and a fire pit. We were very close to a great place to go kayaking, and also not far from Fallingwater. The house was perfectly clean and well setup - we were in need of nothing! The owner was very helpful and available and did his best to make our stay enjoyable. We will definitely come back again! It was a great stay in a beautiful house.
