The Yough Riverhouse (YRH) sleeps 12, is on the river and GAP bike trail.
Located in the town of Confluence, near Lucky Dog Cafe and Riversport--in the heart of the Laurel Highlands Mountains.
YRH is on the Yough River at the tailwaters of the dam, next to the Great Allegheny Passage bike trail and surrounded by over 50 acres of protected woods AND within walking distance to town. *Note: Western PA Conservancy recently purchased the woods surrounding the home. Trails in the works!*
YRH has a large yard, relaxing front porch with adirondack chairs, and hot tub on the deck just off the living room/kitchen. Beyond the deck there is large, shady picnic area with a gas grill, picnic tables and a fire ring in the side yard. And a private, landscaped riverfront for fishing or lounging with a another fire ring and benches. On the other side of the house is a wooden playground for the kids.
The house is 3000 sq feet and features a spacious living room with beautiful stone fireplace, drawing room with hard wood floors, dining room, full kitchen and mud room. There are 3 full bathrooms, one downstairs and 2 up. All 5 bedrooms upstairs have window a/c units. There is: a Master bedroom with king (and a double), 3 rooms with queens and 1 room with twins. There is 1 small additional sleep space with a double futon downstairs for non stair climbing guests.
Enjoy the natural beauty of the area relaxing on front porch overlooking the river. Listen for geese, ducks and other birds. Fly fish for trout in the well stocked tailwaters of the dam in the front yard. Watch for heron, osprey or if you are lucky the bald eagles.
Make a day swimming and boating at the Yough Lake. Take a break from your ride through from DC to Pittsburgh on the bike trail or spend the day biking shorter routes to nearby Ohiopyle, Connellsville, Rockwood or Meyersdale. Make this the perfect retreat for trips to the 2 Frank Lloyd Wright homes (Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob) nearby. We are centrally located to the ski resorts (Wisp in Deep Creek, Seven Springs & Hidden Valley) and 20 min from Nemacolin Resort. Enjoy rafting, canoeing and kayaking right out our door-or for more adventure in nearby Ohiopyle or Friendsville, MD.
The YRH is ideal for a big or multi family vacation, friends getaway or a family reunion.
