About Jim Blewitt

My sisters and I inherited this property from our brother. We have spent a lot of time there while we were young and have loved the house and the outside activities. We have skied for many years at the Seven Springs and Hidden Valley resorts. In the summer there is Idlewild park for children, Falling Water and Ohiopyle

Jim Blewitt purchased this cabin in 1968

Why Jim Blewitt chose Laurel Highlands

It is one of a kind! There may be a lot of nice houses around the area but not one with the privacy, views, creek and pond.

What makes this cabin unique

Being close to the ski resorts, Falling Water and Ohiopyle. It is easy to get to the Pa Turnpike

Good property location but old and dirty inside except bath, be aware of your security deposit!!

  • 3 of 5

The property location is the best part of all.. All the things inside the house is old and dirty, except the bathrooms which we thought were decent... Take enough wipes, if you still decide to go, to clean the furniture you will be using the most... The fan in one bedroom is hung so low that you have to be careful not to raise your hand or not to stand for taller person since it has the light pull down string hanging so low that it is bound to hit you.

Be careful of the security deposit as they will try to keep it even for a smallest damage...

They also do not provide linens and towels, we had to ask them vehemently to provide that as most of us were flying in and due to baggage weight issues.. So be careful and read all the small fine prints...

Spring break get away with grandchildern

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for our family, large family room, large dinning room table and two bedrooms on first floor. Outside, large yard, fire pit and a short walk to the creek and pond.

The pond was amazing, clean water, quite with a raft and a dock for fishing. Many hiking trails right outside our door. Thank you Jim for sharing this great place with us.

Was the perfect spot for our outdoor family of four. Enjoyed sunsets around the huge fire pit, hiking in the state forest and hanging out at the pond. Would happily come again!

Awesome experience

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is amazing! On beautiful property with plenty of space for doggies to run and swim in the pond. It was very clean and spacious enough for 10 people easily. Very easy to get to and close to seven springs!

Great weekend for our families

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time a the cabin. Perfect size for my brother's (from Pittsburgh area) and my families (from Philadelphia and Gettysburg area). Easy access to skiing at Seven Springs. Grandkids had a great time and even the smallest (3 1/2 and 4 year olds) were skiing by themselves. If fact on Sunday the 4 year old got off the chair lift and turned to her father and said 'See you at the bottom'. Can't wait until next year (probably the same weekend) to see the finished product but what we saw was fantastic...

Great location for our family ski vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cabin for our family trip over New Years weekend. Though it's not fancy it's very accurately depicted in the description and photos. It's certainly comfortable, really spacious, and in a beautiful setting. The kitchen has everything we needed for several big meals and the location is easy to get to from 7 Springs -- about 10 minutes. The trails and open spaces were great for walks with our dog and I'm sure the pond is a wonderful place to spend a summer afternoon. Thanks Jim. We'll be back again.
