About Justin and Noelle Weaver of BLC Property

Justin and Noelle Weaver are the architect and designer team of BLC Property LLC. They currently own rental property and flip fixer upper's.

Justin and Noelle Weaver of BLC Property purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Justin and Noelle Weaver of BLC Property chose Ligonier

With market changes and demand for affordable vacationing, the business has expanded to include the vacation rental market. Ligonier is special to the couple as Justin's great-great-grandfather built a cottage near the Loyalhanna that brought generations to the Laurel Highlands.

What makes this cottage unique

"There is something magical about the Laurel Highlands area. You feel God's presence as you look around and see such amazing natural beauty. I fell in love the day Justin took me to Ligonier, and now it is in my blood. Getting a property that is so special is a blessing I never could have imagined. It is a place that Justin and I want to bless others, where they can come to be refreshed." - Noelle Weaver

all around PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

There are seriously no words to describe how amazing this place is...and the owners could not have been more accommodating throughout the entire process. It felt like home from the moment we stepped through the door. The open layout was perfect for hanging out and playing games, and the outdoor space was awesome for enjoying the fire pit after hiking up the beautiful mountain. The sound of the stream flowing was just the perfect touch to the scenery. The kitchen had all the supplies we could ask for and more, and the kids could not get enough bumper pool! As much as we enjoyed the snow, I'm sure it is just as beautiful and entertaining in the summer...we are already trying to plan a weekend to go back!

Wonderful family vacation home for all seasons

  • 5 of 5

Perfect mountain cottage to meet with our grown children and their spouses. Decorated for the season, with a well equipped kitchen including warmed, tile floors. Spacious dinner table for meals, games or long conversations over coffee. Comfortable bedrooms, clean bathrooms and easy check in/check out. We are looking forward to coming back in another season so we can enjoy the outdoor fire pit with the stream running nearby.

Owner's Response: It was so wonderful to have your family and to hear you enjoyed the dining room with coffee and views of the stream. It's my favorite spot too on cold or rainy days when you have to be inside. I'm so happy to hear the check-in check-out was easy and that you plan to come back during the warmer months to enjoy the outdoors more. That is wonderful to hear! We appreciate your time to give this beautiful review! Noelle and Justin

Lovely mountain cottage with lots of Charm!

  • 5 of 5

Fox Haven Cottage is the perfect place to vacation with children or adult couples. The photos and description on this site are only glimpses of the quality you'll find here. The cottage has been smartly designed and beautifully decorated to give each spacious room a cozy, comfortable feel. The wooded lot and creek the cottage sits on is gorgeous and has different outside seating areas to enjoy it all from. The large dining/kitchen area both with walls of windows provides lots of light and views of the woods, creek, and mountain too. We took a very scenic drive to Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater, which was very impressive. We also enjoyed hiking in Linn Run State Park. All and all, we enjoyed this cottage and the Laural Highlands area very much. Our thanks to Justin and Noelle for sharing this cottage and for the explicit check in and check out instructions.

This rental did not feel like a rental it felt like a welcoming home. With the amenities that were provided it made staying there hassle free. I would highly recommend this location. The towns near by were adorable and very friendly.

Owner's Response: It was so great to have you stay and tour the small quaint town! I don't think people realize how fun the town is to visit and shop. I love the stores and all the antique stores. What is so special about Ligonier is the Diamond has no chain stores besides the original Giant Eagle and Subway. Everything is a ma and pa shop and it is fun to support small local unique businesses. Thanks so much for your great review and 5 stars!!! Noelle and Justin
