The Space

SUITE HARMONIE (of the Old Economy Inn, an Historic B&B)

The Old Economy Inn consists of three lovingly renovated apartment suites, each with its own separate entrance, full kitchen, private bathroom, living room, bedroom, cable TV, free wi-fi, small library, and assortment of DVDs.


All three suites are located within the Old Economy Village historical district, a national historical site 18 miles from downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The properties were originally built in 1825 by members of the German Harmonist Society.

SUITE HARMONIE is on the ground floor and features a queen-sized bed in the master bedroom and fold-out couch in the livingroom to accommodate kids or an extra adult. There is a shower/tub combination.

The price of a night's stay in any of our suites includes a home-cooked breakfast delivered to you the following morning at a time of your choosing!

Breakfast options include:

* Fritattas: spinach & parmesan or bacon & cheddar

* Breakfast burritos: eggs, churizo, cheese, and--if you'd like--sour creme and salsa

* Absolutely delicious homemade muffins

* Oatmeal available with raisins, brown sugar, and assorted toppings.

We also provide complimentary coffee, tea, milk or half 'n half, orange juice, and assorted snacks.

(After you book your reservation, please call or email us to let us know your estimated time of arrival as well as your breakfast choices for the following morning!)

There is a wide variety of attractions in the area. The Visitors Center for Old Economy Village is right across the street--walking and guided tours are available throughout most of year. Other cultural attractions range from the Andy Warhol Museum and Scaife Gallery in nearby Pittsburgh, to Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural masterpieces, Falling Water and Kentuck Knob, a few hours drive away (advance reservations required).

Sports lovers can watch the Steelers, Pirates, and Penguins play; and fans of the outdoors can hike the beautiful hills of Western PA.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The Old Economy B&B is an ideal home base if you are interested in visiting Pittsburgh and the vicinity-- and you couldn't ask for better hosts than Debra and James. We only saw Debra in the mornings when she'd bring by a wonderful home-cooked meal and check to see that we were comfortable. No problems there. James even came by to re-program the TV that we managed to botch up by pressing the wrong buttons on the wrong remotes! Beautiful accommodations and gracious owners. Thanks Debra and James.

  • This is a 5 star B & B in the Pittsburgh area. Clean, quiet, spacious, and a great value! Close to local attractions and a quick drive into the city. Breakfast was a highlight. Would recommend.

    November 2012
  • This B&B is quaint, comfortable, and spotlessly clean. Included in the room rental is the entire first floor complete with private bathroom (great tub), stocked kitchen, and living area. The look of the space is very colonial. SO Pennsylvania!

    Breakfast was delivered at the time of our choice. It was homemade and DELICIOUS!

  • We arrived early and the home was prepared and the host had left the key available for us. We called and set up our breakfast. They were renovating the next door and we did get to see how dedicated they were to the accurate preservation. We loved the quaint home setting. We had a beautiful poster bed which was very romantic.
    Breakfast was delivered to our door. All things were wonderful

  • Debra has a very cute and efficient apartment. Old Economy village hosts an interesting and affordable walking tour. The town is quiet and places to eat within walking distance. Communting to Pittsburgh was an easy 20 minute drive along the river. I'd highly recommend this place.

    September 2012
  • My childhood friend and I stayed here and I wholeheartedly recommend this Inn! The apartment was just perfect for the two of us. Debra has decorated the Inn lovingly and boy is it clean! Our daily breakfast was A+ and delivered hot!! I can't say enough positive things about Debra's Inn. I will definitely be back. Thanks to Debra and her husband our holiday was perfect!!!

    September 2012
  • This is a beautiful place to stay, and is very convenient to Pittsburgh (a city that almost requires driving to visit the various neighborhoods).

    "Economy" refers to the name of the old town, just north of Pittsburgh, and not to the furnishings and ambiance in the slightest.

    Excellent breakfast!

    I will definitely stay here again!

    September 2012
  • The house was very nice and clean. The appliances were up to date. The bedroom was comfortable. Debra's frittata and biscuit were delicious!

    The neighborhood in the day time is a lovely, historic residential area, and is across the street from the historic Information Center. It is essentially an old northeastern village. At night, the neighborhood is quiet and a little harder to navigate.

    Dining options and distance from PIttsburgh were the two drawbacks. If you were staying longer than a weekend and wanted a place to call home, or were drawn by the history and gardens of Old Economy then this place would be perfect.

    August 2012
  • This Inn was wonderful. My girlfriend and I stayed there for her birthday and we had a great experience. The house was beautiful, there was a great pizza place right down the road, and the family was so nice and accommodating. We had a great time and highly recommend it.

    August 2012
  • Gorgeous home, great breakfast, but we didn't have hot water due to a slight mishap until an hour or so before we left. Lovely area, very quiet at night. Not sure I would pick this as the number one place to stay when visiting Pittsburgh though, it is a pretty decent drive to and from.

I love the simple architecture of the Harmonist Society and did my best to restore the Inn in keeping with their style. If you treasure old houses, I really think you will love staying at the Inn. Make sure to visit the Old Economy Village, a state historical site, right down Church Street. We have also restored another Harmonist home about six blocks away from the Inn. This other building, which is also in the Old Economy Village historical district, is the new home for our catering business, the Old Economy Cafe. The Cafe opened in October, 2010, and it's where we prepare your breakfast and--upon special request--other meals for delivery to the Inn. Ask us about dinner options during your stay!
