Wonderful countryside escape
Aimee and JR's beautiful property was a great place to meet up with family between Pittsburgh and DC, and made for a perfect covid-safe getaway. We usually do a big trip to somewhere beachy this time of year but had to come up with a more local alternative and this was a fantastic other option. Our 1 and 3 year old kids appreciated the toys and loved reading on all the various sofas in different nooks like in the cozy sunroom. The kids also had fun sledding and jumping in the snow and we got to enjoy the hot tub on the very cold days. The house itself is impeccably appointed with great style and is super functional, with plenty of different areas to lounge in together or get away for some quiet reading time or a nap. The integration of the old farmhouse plus the updated renovation is super cool. The kitchen is a perfect spot to both gather and prepare elaborate meals and is extremely well stocked with basic cooking supplies and cookware. The rooms are super comfortable-- we all got some much-needed rest which fueled us through fun days playing games indoors and exploring the grounds covered in snow. If you're into snow sports, seven springs and hidden valley are minutes away, and in warmer weather, the trails throughout the Laurel Highlands are at your doorstep. We hope to be back!!
