Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Get a real feel of the rolling hills of Pittsburgh while staying in a comfortable cottage built on a hill in a peaceful wooded setting. Plenty of room to relax and unwind while enjoying nature.
The cottage is only 10 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh (park and ride and bus is within walking distance) and the Pittsburgh Int'l airport is only 15 minutes away. It has 1 bedroom, 1.5 bath, completely furnished, large covered deck to sit on and relax in private and fireplace in the living room. Newly remodeled. All hardwood floors, new kitchen, bath, electric and plumbing. Local park is also within walking distance. It's the perfect place to stay and feel like you are at home while you are visiting our beautiful City of Pittsburgh!

We have stayed in many B&B's around the country and like to try off the beaten path places. This is one of those. We enjoyed the seclusion. We had to make a food run, no food is here only a few outdated condiments left by others. There is a full kitchen, but bring anything you think you might need to...

We rented the cottage while in Pennsylvania for the 2016 US Open and found it to be very convenient to the tournament location and all of the tourist activities we were interested in. It had all of the amenities to make it a very comfortable vacation spot. One surprise was that we found several very good restaurants in downtown Carnegie.

My friend and I stayed at Laura's cottage and found it to be very relaxing. Yes it is "comfy and cozy" like the owner claims. The cottage was clean. We found it to be very peaceful in a private location. You'd think you were in the mountains, yet just a couple miles away from downtown Pittsburgh. I would recommend this...

Management response:

Todd, thanks so much for such a great review! I'm glad you and your friend enjoyed your stay! Hope you do come back and visit again! Sustainably yours, Laura

About the neighbourhood
The house is located on a fairly steep hill with off street parking as well as a driveway. Note - you must not enter or exit Terrace Avenue from/to Chestnut, it is a very dangerous entry, you'll need to turn onto Summit, Summit turns into Grandview, Grandview bears right, turn Left onto Terrace. It is the very first house on the right hand side (kinda hard to see due to the amount of foliage in front. It is a very quite neighborhood. There are no neighbors on either side of the house, only one behind and in front, below the house. The house is built on a hill and the road is steep. The driveway is tricky to navigate so I suggest getting there in the daylight. There is off street parking in front of the house, so you don't have to use the driveway if you don't want to... more
