Completely private room and bath in the historic Mexican War Streets of Pittsburgh within walking distance to downtown, PNC Park, Heinz Field, the Mattress Factory, the Warhol, the convention center, and many restaurants and theaters between.
I have a private bedroom and bath available. The room features an antique desk, a new full bed, and a private porch with a comfy couch overlooking a beautiful yard. The room also has a radio alarm clock, a hairdryer, an iron, and an ironing board.
The Crazy Mocha coffee house is a short walk away. This neighborhood was laid out during the Mexican American War, and thus features some really old and beautiful townhomes. My house was built in 1890.
Parking is available in front of the house. The Allegheny Commons Park is a short walk away--great for running or just relaxing by the pond. Beyond the park (a 15 minute walk) are PNC Park, home of the Pirates, and Heinz Field, home of the Pitt Panthers and the Steelers. Downtown is about five minutes beyond.
Other attractions include the Mattress Factory Museum (right around the corner), the Byham Theater (in the park), the Andy Warhol Museum (down by the stadiums), the Children's Museum (in the park), and the National Aviary (in the park).
The immediate neighborhood is very quiet, but there is easy access to buses on Federal Street (50 yards away) and North Ave. The 54 bus is a 35 minute commute to the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University.
All I really ask is that you don't do any serious or lasting damage. No smoking inside.
Guests should park in the back and arrive at the back door on the porch. Knock and give me a call/text and I'll be down to let you in. After that you can come and go as you like when you like through the same door.
Let me know if you need any extra towels or pillows or restaurant advice.
Great communication and quiet location for a city stay. However I did find the pictures a little misleading. The bedding and towels were well used, pillows and duvet not great quality. I am 8 months pregnant so don't sleep well anywhere but my husband found it difficult to get comfortable, resulting in not a great nights sleep.
Made us feel welcome and accommodated us very well. The house is very nice and the beds are comfy. We especially enjoyed the sofa on the porch. Thanks Charles!
Charles was a very welcoming host. The room was as described. Simple and comfortable.
We had a super great experience! We are first time Pittsburgh visitors and were very welcomed by Charles. Place was comfy, clean, and close to many places! Charles was helpful and awesome. Thanks!!
Charles was an excellent host -- very knowledgeable, friendly, and reliable. The room was very clean, the bed was comfy, the wi-fi connection was strong, and there was even a nice deck out back, which guests might use during spring, summer, and fall. All in all, the experience was excellent. I would highly recommend staying here.
Great bed, clean room. Charles greeted us and gave us an excellent dinner recomendation. The shower was fantastic. Thanks!
The Alpine Lodge was comfortable, spacious, and clean.
Charles was an excellent host and was extremely accommodating. The location was close to several restaurants and the Mattress Factory museum. All in all a great place to stay in Pittsburgh!

I moved to Pittsburgh about two years ago. I've spent time traveling in foreign countries and across the US, and I've benefited from the hospitality of other Air BnB hosts. As far as hosting myself, I'm pretty hands off. You will have your own private bed, bath, and entrance. Looking forward to meeting you and helping you to explore Pittsburgh,
