Walk up the steps of a little brick house & through the window doors to a modern, eclectically renovated condo. Its open-floor plan, amenities, & stylish furnishings marry the best of both worlds: hotel meets home! I live here 1/3 of the year so you'll find personal touches throughout. 0.3 miles from The Diamond in Ligonier with all its shops and niceties, this is the perfect hotel alternative for small groups in the Laurel Highlands!
The upstairs is an open-floor plan: the kitchen, dining room, and living room are one big space. The guest bedroom off of this has a full-size platform bed. The bathroom has a stand-up shower with detachable showerhead.
Down the stairs to the basement you'll find the second living room with a second television, a desk with a desktop computer (guests may log onto the guest account and use this), the master bedroom with a queen size platform bed, and the master bathroom with another stand-up shower with detachable showerhead. The master bathroom is accessible from the downstairs living room AND from the master bedroom, and can therefore be made into a private bathroom by locking the door to the living room. The washer and dryer are in the hallway between the master bedroom and master bathroom.
Each floor is approximately 900 sq ft.
Included in your rental:
Bedding (sheets, pillowcases)
Fabric softener sheets
Coffee maker (Ninja Single Serve System with Frother)
Coffee (regular and decaf)
Coffee filter (reusable)
Assortment of teas
Cooking wares, utensils, plates, mugs, cups, etc.
Fridge dispenses ice and filtered water
You may want to bring:
Tin foil, zip locks, plastic wrap if cooking
Disposable utensils/plates/red solo cups if you don't like doing dishes on vacation
Your own shampoo/laundry soap/body wash if you have allergies to standard products
Half and Half for the fridge if you don't like non-refrigerated individual Coffeemate coffee creamers
Guests may take up 2 parking spots in the alley at the back porch of the condo.
The Diamond in Ligonier is about 8 blocks (less than half a mile) from the house.
Guests have access to the entire condo during their stay. The basement will have a locked storage closet behind the guest, where my personal belongings will be stored to make room for yours :)
Airbnb messages and texts reach me equally quickly, and if you have any issues or general questions I'm very easy to get ahold of. Although I'm likely traveling during your stay, we have caretakers who are available if something at the house requires physical assistance.
Access to the house is by keyless entry, so you'll be entering privately and won't be meeting a host. If I'm in town and you would prefer a tour of the space, I'll be happy to oblige. Your unique 4-digit code will be sent to you the day before your trip.
No parties, events, or additional guests allowed. This condo is a brick building divided into two units. The second unit is a very sweet elderly woman. TV's and music at a volume on par with a TV are fine as the dividing wall is brick and excellent at sound-proofing between the units; anything louder is unacceptable. This is a residential neighborhood. That being said, the dining room table seats 6. If you'd like to have dinner guests this is acceptable up to 6 people in the house.
Guests are *not* allowed to bring their pets. However, my dog does stay with me when I am here, so this listing is not suitable for people with severe pet allergies.
All dishes should be washed before checking out, and any food brought into the house should be thrown out or taken with guests when they go. Garbage should be taken to the tan garbage can marked for this unit on the alley side of the street.
As a traveler: I'm an avid traveler who's lived all over, and I love a local experience! I host full-time in Western PA so I show my rentals lots of love and leave them very clean
As a host: We have two fantastic vacation homes that we use less as we travel more, and what better way to hold onto these houses than to share them with other people/families looking for new adventures! Both houses were designed with kids in mind, but are also perfect for romantic getaways and tour groups.
As seasoned travelers who've endured a bad stay or two, we understand that when you book your travel lodging, you're trusting your host to offer you a beautiful, comfortable, and hospitable space to share with your loved ones.
With this in mind, we're offering flexible check-in policies, cleanliness, amenities, attention to detail, and special accommodations. We live within 45 minutes of our listed properties and are just a text/email/phone call away.
Thank you so much for considering booking one of our homes. We hope you'll love them as much as we do!
