  • Perfect birthday weekend in Pittsburgh

    "I rented both units to celebrate my 50th birthday with several of my girlfriends and this place was more than perfect. I grew up in the Pittsburgh area and wanted to share my love of Pittsburgh with my friends. This house offers the best location. We could easily reach any location within the city since the incline is a just a few steps away, and then the T is available at the bottom. Uber is very active as well. The place was spotless, well-stocked and the views are spectacular! We loved the rooftop--we would take our morning coffee up there and relax. Barbara was very easy to work with during the planning of this trip. I would highly recommend this rental. Thanks for making my birthday celebration special!"

  • Lovely home & great location

    "My lovely bride and I, another couple, and a friend from Pittsburgh spent two nights at this lovely place in late May. The property is just as described. Working with Kara (the owner) was a great experience: very responsive, quick to answer questions, and quick to give us a heads-up about getting gas before we got to town. The home sits above the Yough River, easy to see and hear from the house, deck or hot tub. Easy parking for two vehicles. Inside, the house is very comfortable, with a big closet to the right of the front door and a bathroom to the left. The living room has good lighting and comfy sofa and chairs. The kitchen is well equipped; all appliances were easy to use. The dining "bar" only has four stools but there are folding chairs in the closet. The master bedroom is quite large with a huge closet, full bath with old-fashioned tub and plastic shower curtains. There is a door that opens onto the deck. The kitchen also has a door that opens onto the deck. We cooked-in both nights and enjoyed our meals on the deck (we had perfect weather!). The other downstairs bedroom has twin beds. The loft is huge, with chairs on one end, and windows galore. There is no bathroom up here. Guests using the loft have to use the bathroom on the first floor. The washer and dryer are in the basement and there was plenty of laundry soap. Easy to use Wi-Fi. Three of us used the hot tub each late afternoon = as my wife said each time she climbed in: "Aaahhhhh!" The road is totally quiet since the only two houses are those owned by Kara and her husband, John. We visited the Flight 93 Memorial up in Stoystown/Shanksville = a powerful and moving experience. We also visited Fallingwater, Frank Lloyd Wright's iconic home built for the Kaufman family = awesome. And on the day we departed, we did a short hike in Ohiopyle State Park = beautiful. One evening we walked down the hill and across the bridge to the Outflow Ice Cream shop = yummy! Kara will send you a lot of information about the house and you will find a binder with the same and additional info on the living room table. There also are brochures to area attractions on the shelf in the living room. Overall, we had a wonderful time staying here. Our only regret: we couldn't stay longer!"

  • Thanksgiving Holidays at Helen's Hide Inn

    "We just spent a relaxing Thanksgiving holidays at Helen’s Hide Inn. There were 12 of us from three different families. We picked Helen’s Hide Inn because it was centrally located between the families and it had the bedrooms (5) and baths (5) that we needed. The Inn was very comfortable for all of us with a large family room and two full kitchens. The furnishings are comfortable and the downstairs rooms are large so that our large group never felt cramped. The day after Thanksgiving we visited the Frank Lloyd Wright house at Falllingwater, which I highly recommend. The only issues to be aware of is that the house is next to a busy road so at night you can hear the cars passing. Also the bedrooms are small but adequate since if you are there you will want spend your time in the family room or outside. I highly recommend Helen’s Hide Inn and look forward to going there next year."

  • Enjoyed our stay

    "We had a great time during our stay at Robin's chalet. The property worked great for the adults and children in our group. The kids loved the river behind the chalet and they enjoyed seeing the trains. The trains didn't really bother anyone in our group. We hope to visit again next year."
