About Maritsa Jane Hartlove
We bought our condo in Blue knob many years ago to enjoy family vacations. We still use our condo but not as often as we like because we moved. We also used the condo in Blue knob for our summer camp that we ran in Md. My husband and I are both graduates of the University of Md. We still enjoy going to Blue knob with our family. Blue knob is our home away from home. We all enjoy skiing,swimming,paying tennis,boating and exploring. Even more we enjoy relaxing away from the city and spending quality time together . If you love nature you will love our condo at Blue knob.
Maritsa Jane Hartlove purchased this Condo in 2005
Why Maritsa Jane Hartlove chose Claysburg
We were so excited when we bought our condo in Blue knob because it allowed us to spend time with our whole family in the beautiful Allegheny Mountains. We love Blue knob so much we even bought a second condo to accommodate our whole family as we began to have grand children. We often spend Christmas at our condos in Blue knob . We also enjoy summer vacations at Blue knob because it is so nice and cool in the mountains. We love the nearby lakes, caves, and baseball games. Blue knob offers fun for all ages. The first time we went to Blue knob for a long weekend to ski we fell in love with the resort and bought our condo. We have all learned to ski, swim and play tennis at Blue knob. The area is rich in nature and I always feel closer to God when I am in the mountains.
What makes this Condo unique
Our condo is beautifully decorated but also very comfortable. Enjoy roasting marshmallows in the fireplace in the winter or having a cookout on the grounds of Blue knob in the spring, summer or fall. Blue knob is part of a state park which makes it even more attractive. You may even see a bear while you enjoy a romantic dinner at the Black bear Inn . The indoor pool has a large hot tub and sauna that will be very relaxing after hiking,boating,fishing,playing tennis,golfing or skiing. The mountains surround our condo and the views are beautiful. This is a wonderful place to view all the fall leaves as they change colors what a beautiful picture of nature.

We loved the laid back life on the mountain.
We were there 8 weeks from July to September. The outside pool was relaxing and we visited the bar/grill frequently. The inside pool was not open the entire time we were there due to renovations. We did not use the hot tub. The condo was pretty much as pictured. It could use some updated furniture, but it was freshly painted and very clean. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will no doubt return next year.
Cozy and Secluded
Total nights stay 77, I wouldn't mind staying again!
Booked this as our first property for our across the country 12 month road trip from the East Coast to West Coast. I was looking for something in the middle of nowhere for my daughters and I to witness the beautiful transition from Winter to Spring... this was perfect for just that.
Although winter dragged on a little bit we were able to get a few good hikes in and explored most of the property before the black bears started making their appearances.
The condo is simple and comfortable except when it started to get warmer/more humid. There is no air conditioner and only fans which don't cut it; so for a winter getaway it's perfect.
We had a few issues with the door/lock got locked out; it's been rectified. The refrigerator wasn't maintaining temperature as well so for a few weeks keeping the refrigerator stocked wasn't possible as we waited for it to be fixed-- that was the biggest downside to our trip.
I met some amazing people at the restaurant that's on the property and will definitely be visiting them on our way back through; Grace, at the Clubhouse Bar & Grill, is amazing!
The overall property is a bit outdated but they had started some updates (I don't know if they're planning to improve the entire property?) as we were departing so maybe it'll improve cosmetically. The indoor pool area definitely needs some work; pool/hot tub needs to be repainted and workout room needs to be cleaned up. And several tenants would smoke inside the locker rooms which became an inconvenience. We were not able to use the second hot tub located closest to the condo because of some maintenance.
We had a nice time. Property owner was very accommodating and quick to reply to our needs. The room was comfortable. The mountain didnt open as anticipated due to snow melt but we still had fun staying at the resort.
So glad you had fun! Hope you will visit again soon!so glad you enjoyed your stay! The resort offers many activities! Hope youcanstay input mountain home again soon. The summer months are wonderful!
Condo is quaint. Great price. Hot tub was not working. The WI-FI was spotty. Great location for the ski resort. Very clean. Bar and Grill right across the parking lot. Would stay again.

Last Minute Notice
We were extremely pleased with our experience with this rental. Due to a new job our grandson was in immediate need of accommodations at the last minute. With less than 48 hour notice we were able to obtain our rental for two weeks. The condo was wonderful and Maritsa was very helpful with all her correspondence and making sure our stay was met with all our needs. We are happy to say we would definitely rent again from this owner. Thank you Maritsa for your hospitality and the wonderful accommodations.
It was a pleasure hosting you. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. I hope you can visit again soon:)
