Love seat coverts to twin bed.  Sits ok but I must say not the most comfortable for sleeping.  But for one or two nights it is fine.  In the bins on the shelf there are menus for local restaurants and guides for things to do around the area.  Don't forget to check my guide on this site too!

Launa was so great when I needed to check out early and when I had wifi issues (ended up being issues with my laptop). Only thing I would have liked to know beforehand is that a highway run right next to the space and there was traffic noise all night long. I used a sound machine and was able to get used to it after a few nights. If I had known, I would have brought ear plugs.

My partner Alan and I have been staying at Launas place for about 3 years now. We have been going to Knobles amusement park for 3 years, and love staying at Launa's when we go. when we arrive, Launa's apartment is always set up beautifully, clean towels, and sheets. The bed is always nicely made, and everything is so clean and neat We love the little extras like bottled water in the fridge, and the coffee for the Kerig machine. We love being able relax in such a calm cozy environment. It is the perfect home away from home.

I came up to PA to do some offroad driving classes at the AOAA. "My Brother's Place" in Mt Carmel was the perfect place to stay. A nice and cozy 1-bedroom apt with street parking right out the front door. What more could I ask for? If I can make this offroad trip a yearly affair, I'll definitely be checking to see if "My Brother's Place" is be available again next time.

What a great find. "My brothers place" was better than described. I would recommend to anyone who needs a place to stay in Mt. Carmel. I am planning 2 visits this next year and hope to stay here for both. Launa was great. Quick to respond. Great find at a great price.

Launa's place is in a great location for us - we are so close to family, Knoebel's, etc. Launa is easy to reach and communicate with. Her place is cheery and well-equipped (good kitchen supplies, bathroom, etc.). You'll feel right at home!

This was my first airbnb experience and, what a great start! Lauan was extremely responsive from the start to the finish. I reserved in the same week of the stay and was completely confident that all would work out well. The apartment was exactly as described and the little extras that Launa provides makes it clear that she wants her guests to feel welcome and at home. My favorite extras were the abundance of clean, fluffy towels and bedding, the thoughtfully filled candy dish (how DID she know that dark chocolate was my favorite???) the overall cleanliness and clean scent. Not only did Launa respond to any of my questions quickly, she checked in before, during and after my stay to ensure that all was good. When I return to Mt Carmel in the future to visit friends and family, I will never again look any further for a place to stay. Plus, I only had my son with me this time, but my family of four could definitely fit comfortably here as well! Thanks, Launa!

Thanks so much for your kind review. My mother and I try really hard to make the apartment homey. I stay there when I come home and so do some of my relatives and friends who have moved away. I love going back there!
