Other Things to Note
Long Term Guests:
We love long-term guests! For guests who stay a month or longer, we do not offer breakfast. However, we are happy to share the kitchen with you. Also, each week, I clean the room, change the sheets and wash your towels.
Need a massage while you are visiting? Glenn is a massage therapist. Let us know ahead of time if you want to schedule a massage with him.
We do not allow pets. We do not allow smoking in the house; however, if you are courteous about it we will allow smoking on the deck or during inclement weather on the porch as long as there are no open windows close by. Our quiet hours are from 10pm to 7am so If you are coming in after that time, please be quiet. We welcome you to use the kitchen, porches, deck, and of course your space which is the entire third floor. The second floor is our private space and is off limits to all guests.
Glenn and Suzanne are warm and friendly. We were able to find the house easily and found the room to be spacious and comfortable for two people. It was nice to have a private entrance so we didn't worry about coming in late. The information binder was great to have, our dinner suggestion was perfect. We were only there for one night but I'd stay again for sure.
Glenn was an excellent host, and everything was awesome. The neighborhood was cool and close to other cool neighborhoods; the room was exactly as advertised; everything was clean and comfortable; and Glenn made us feel very welcome. Thank you!
This Airbnb is a true Bed & Breakfast experience. Suzanne and Glen have thought of everything to make their guests comfortable. I greatly appreciated the water at the top of the stairs when I arrived late, and had schlepped all my stuff up the narrow staircase to the top. Breakfast in the morning was really so very appreciated as it was one less thing that I had to coordinate in my visit. They gave me toast, fruit and coffee and it was great. I opened the futon and slept on that and it was very, very comfortable. All-in-all, it's a cozy attic space and in a safe-feeling and quiet neighborhood that is close to the arts district of Pittsburgh. I enjoyed it and would easily recommend!!!
About the Host, Suzanne
Glenn and I decided to become airbnb hosts because we had this great guest space which was not often used. We heard about airbnb from Glenn's niece who is also a host, so we decided to give it a try. Not one hour passed after registering our listing, before we had a booking. That was July of 2011 and we have enjoyed hosting folks from all over the world. It's kind of like being ambasadors to Pittsburgh. We absolutely love it as we have met so many wonderful people! I work from home so being an airbnb host is a perfect fit for me. Since 2001 I, have been a Life Coach and I work with my clients to help them grow themselves in multiple ways. I enjoy being outdoors and I spend a lot of time in our local park. Thankfully Pittsburgh has plenty of green space to enjoy. I also love music, dance and I love food! I love all aspects of food - growing it, cooking it, and gathering people around my table to eat it. Glenn and I shifted from vegetarian to vegan a few years ago and we are having fun expanding our adventures with food. I have two grown children and we have two granddaughters, whom we do not see nearly enough. Glenn is a politics and history officionado. He also enjoys being outdoors, dance and gardening. For work Glenn is a Physical Therapy Assistant and a Massage Therapist. He has been in the healing arts since the early 1990's. He is very civic-minded and active especially regarding local politics. We are both founding board members of our community garden, where Glenn still serves. When guests are interested, he loves to give them a tour of our neighborhood and garden.
