The space
"Glamping" with all the amenities of home!

Complete kitchen with stove, oven, sink and fridge. Included are pots, pans, dishes, flatware, teakettle, and a French coffee press. There are even 4 wine glasses - hey we aren't animals. The "new" Picnic Pavilion with a gas grill and picnic table, is the perfect spot for bar-b-q's in most any type of weather.

Living room sofa folds out to a very comfy double bed. A CD-Tape-Radio combo is there for some music enjoyment along with a "new" DVD player and an assortment of movies (G-PG-R). A gel mattress Queen bed is just up the folding ladder in the sleeping loft. Full bathroom with sink, shower, medicine chest, mirror, lights and composte toilet. Towels and bed linens are included.

BnB: "Breakfast". We will not be there to cook you breakfast, (as we live 45 minutes away in Pittsburgh), however we do provide a nice way to start your day. There is always coffee (regular & decaf) and tea to brew, usually some fresh fruit, a couple of fresh tasty, muffins from a local bakery, and some brown eggs from our hens. The kitchen is stocked with all the basics and more, so help yourself to what is there.

Outdoors you can relax on the deck facing rolling hills, nap in the 2 hammocks, sit by a campfire and roast some marshmallows to make S'mores (split logs, kindling and an axe are included), gaze up at the stars with the telescope, bar-b-q on the grill and eat dinner outside at the table in the Picnic Pavilion, enjoy the Scottish Highland cattle or take the binoculars and go bird-watching.

In the shed you will find some games and toys for outdoor fun plus two bikes if you'd like to ride the nearby trails. A pair of cross country skis and two vinyl sleds are also in the shed for winter snow fun !!

Other things to note
Highland House is completely "off-the-grid".
Electricity is 100% Solar Powered, water is from our cistern & spring and propane fuels the heat, stove and hot water.
Running water from the cistern is great for showers and washing dishes but not so good to drink or cook with. Jugs of tap water for cooking & bottled water for drinking are provided.
Toilet is composte. Add a scoop or two of provided cedar chips and you're done.
Gentle breezes will pull through open windows. No air conditioner is needed.
Highland House is pet friendly for all good doggies.
Beware:
Electric Fences surround the pastures where the Scottish Highland cattle are.

After a long white collar career in commercial real estate, I started raising Scottish Highland cattle in 2008 and doing real estate consulting work in struggling old steel towns southeast of Pittsburgh. Today I co-own (along with Dana O'Connor) Pittsburgher Highland Farm. We raise over 100 grass-fed Scottish Highland and Red Devon cattle as well as chickens and ducks on three different farms consisting of nearly 200 acres near New Stanton PA. In addition to our own beef and eggs, we also market grass-fed lamb and pastured pork that we buy from trusted fellow sustainable farmers. We added Highland House to the mix in 2014 and starting inviting folks to come enjoy what we experience every day. Having grown up on a dairy farm, this endeavor has brought me full circle. I've always liked being outdoors doing things like running, hiking, biking, kayaking, fishing and skiing, and now I get to do it every day! When not at the farm I live near Pittsburgh with my husband (also Mark) and our dog Penny. Dana, Mark and I hope you enjoy the Tiny House Big Farm Adventure. It's our goal to create a relaxing atmosphere amidst a sustainable, organic environment. We encourage all to know your food sources and know your farmers and hope that your stay with us is a step toward doing just that!
