The Space

Take it all in - you will enjoy the proximity to Pittsburgh's cafes, dining, museums, culture, public transportation & nightlife from the privacy of a quiet, spacious loft. Enjoy a well-equipped kitchen, jacuzzi, and friendly, knowledgeable hosts!

Unique loft space in the heart of trendy Bloomfield/Lawrenceville with access to a large kitchen, jacuzzi tub, and easy travel to many Pittsburgh destinations. Walk to loads of restaurants and cafes, art galleries, Western Penn & Children's Hospital. On the bus line to Pitt, CMU, UPMC, or downtown.

We are a nurse and a graduate student with a passion for food, travel, music, and meeting new people. We look forward to hosting you in the "Most Livable City."

Your room is an updated, air conditioned loft, split between the second and third floors of a unique Bloomfield-Lawrenceville home. Up to two guests will enjoy a comfortable queen bed, Keurig coffee maker, end table, breakfast nook, mini refrigerator, two desks, a private couch, as well as a growing library in the loft. You will also have access to the bathroom, kitchen, living room, laundry, and a spacious porch. If more than two guests plan on staying with us, we have a memory foam queen sized fold-out couch on the first floor.

We are located in Bloomfield-Lawrenceville, which is simultaneously very close to the bustle of the Strip District, Penn Avenue, and Downtown, while still maintaining its reputation as a welcoming neighborhood with quiet one way streets. A quick drive or a walk to the bus stop will take you to University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon, UPMC or the airport. We are an easy walk to Butler Street, around which much of Lawrenceville's art, food, nightlife and music scenes revolve. Likewise, Liberty Avenue is a few blocks, and is home to Bloomfield's vibrant "Little Italy," along with several coffee shops and bookstores. Walk, bike or jog the peaceful, rolling hills of Allegheny Cemetery, encompassing 300 acres of beautifully kept public green space and filled with statuary and ironwork by local artists, and located a few blocks away.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions, we look forward to meeting you!

We love to share conversation and drinks - be it tea, coffee, Sam's home-brewed hard cider, or wine - with our guests, but we are also very busy with school and work. You may see a lot of us, or very little, depending on when you visit.

  • We had a great stay at Nicole and Sam's house this past weekend! We had a very busy schedule, but it was nice to know that there was a clean and cozy room waiting for us at the end of a long day. They were very hospitable, and even helped us get ready for our trip with some advice, and they were great communicators. Nicole and Sam's house is centrally located, so it was easy for us to get around town very quickly. It was nice to have a parking space for our rental car, and the Keurig coffee maker was a nice touch to get us going in the morning. It was our first time using Airbnb and Nicole and Sam definitely left a great impression!

  • Nicole and Sam were great hosts - laid back but attentive. The house is clean and the space being rented is large. It isn't just a bedroom, but also includes a sitting room w/ couch and mini-fridge. I was able to park right in their driveway which was a nice convenience. They both gave good advice on local restaurants and things to do and in general made themselves accessible as needed.

  • Nicole and Sam were model hosts: friendly, hospitable, knowledgeable, and easy to communicate and co-exist with. They have a unique and comfortable space for guests, and their house is a short distance from diverse neighborhood experiences. Our booking and stay were seamless. We really enjoyed visiting and highly recommend!

  • Nicole and Sam are wonderful hosts. They greeted us with homemade cider, we had great conversations and they really made us feel at home. The room was nice and comfortable, with a lot of privacy. Next time we are in Pittsburgh, we are definitely going to their house again.

  • Nicole and Sam were great hosts! The house was more than we expected - super comfortable, clean and close to tons of places. Nicole provided us with coffee, snacks and great suggestions for places to visit. Evita, their fun and energetic kitten kept us company. Overall, the experience was wonderful and I would definitely recommend staying with them.

  • Sam and Nicole were not only excellent hosts, but also some of the nicest and most generous people I have ever met. Their house was perfectly situated for easy access to restaurants, museums and downtown Pittsburgh.

  • Arriving in Pittsburgh at an ungodly hour, Nicole and Sam were only too happy to accommodate me while they still had another guest upstairs. It is this type of hospitality and understanding that defines a stay with this lovely couple. They were hugely helpful in providing public transport tips and were genuinely interesting people to sit down and have a yarn with. The room itself is secluded and provides a private sanctuary to relax and read a book. First rate people. First rate room. First rate experience. I'd have no hesitation staying with Sam and Nicole again . Go Steelers!

  • La casa de Nicole y Sam es muy acogedora, queda en un barrio seguro y muy bien ubicado con una ruta de bus muy cercana. Me hicieron sentir como en casa, siempre estabas dispuestos a ayudarme en todo a pesar que yo estoy aprendiendo a hablar en inglés su actitud era siempre la mejor.
    Muchas gracias por su hospitalidad

  • Nicole and Sam were the perfect hosts. We stayed 2 nights in pittsburg to visit our son at CMU. Everything was easy, the bed was very comfy...we slept like babies. A private sitting area with WIFI, sofa and a frig allowed us to check our email and watch a Netflix movie while having a glass of chilled wine... Sam and Nicole gave us great recommendations for places within walking distance. We really enjoyed our stay. Just perfect. We'll book with them again for next visit.
