About this listing

This second-floor room, with a shared bathroom, is part of a unique Airbnb guesthouse designed to accommodate medical residents, grad students and parents of university students who are in town for short or long-term rental. The house is located in a quiet, off-campus student housing area, it is just a short 15-20 minutes walk to Pitt, CMU, or UPMC. If you like meeting folks from around the world, then consider staying with us while you are in Pittsburgh.

The space

This charming house built in 1897 has been lovingly updated and restored with many of the original features still intact. From transoms above each room for cross ventilation, and original fireplaces, come experience what it what it like to live during Pittsburgh’s great steel era (just without all the black smoke). The Carnegie Room is located on the second floor at the back of the house. With great morning sun, this room has high ceilings and great views of Schenley Park. There is WiFi available throughout the house and guests have shared access to the kitchen and laundry facilities.

Guest access

Guests have access to a kitchen, living room, and washer and dryer. We also have extra bikes available to use for free during your stay.

Interaction with guests

We do not live at this location (we live 5-blocks away). This house is completely dedicated to Airbnb guests. Our interaction can vary depending on our schedules and our guests' schedules. Sometimes we cross paths frequently, sometimes guests come and go without us meeting face-to-face. We have a self-check in process that allows guest to arrive when they like. We tend to keep busy schedules and travel frequently so interaction can vary.

Other things to note

Just as a clarification for new Airbnb users - our house does not provide a typical BnB experience. We offer clean comfortable rooms in a shared house with little to no interaction from us the host. Our space works well for grad students and doctors who are in town looking for a place to stay for a weekend or a month. If this environment work for you then we look forward to hosting you while you are in town.

This place was clean and quiet, which is exactly what I was looking for. Michael and Amy were quick to respond to my room request and check in couldn't have been easier. I also appreciated the well stocked kitchen/fridge for a quick convenient breakfast. I will definitely stay here again when I come back to Pittsburgh.

Probably the best airbnb experience I had. A very nice house, and the room is actually larger than the pictures show (there is a desk!). Amy and Michael were very informative and answered all of my questions quickly. Highly recommended!

Amy and Michael's home is a perfect place to stay for me as a PITT Parent. It is within easy walking distance of the campus and public transportation. As a repeat customer I can say it has consistently been a great experience. It is clean and comfortab and the other guests have always been nice.

Michael was a great host! He answered all the time very fast and gave me very useful information to move around the city. The house is really clean, a very nice and comfortable place to stay while attending some event in the city.

Nothing but good things to say here. Michael was super communicative and easy to get in touch with. He went out of his way to make sure we had parking which I really appreciated. The house is huge and beautiful. Lots of privacy even though there were other people staying there - we barely saw the other guests. The room and bathroom were very clean and exactly like the photos. The house earns extra points from me because it's down the street from Andy Warhol's childhood home. I

House is beautiful and the location great (student area; bars and restaurants close by; rather lively, but not too noisy). Hosts are really welcoming and helpful.
