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.
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!
The room was in a very convenient location on the north side. We were always less than 20 minutes away from wherever we wanted to go in the city. Parking was right behind the house and there was a door that opened right into the room. It was the perfect alcove to rest in before going out into the city. Charles was helpful and available. After a brief introduction to the room and some small talk he handed over the keys, assuring us that if we ever needed help, he was there. We never wound up needing to call him but I have no reason to doubt him.
My Fiance and I absolutely loved everything about this experience. The room and private bathroom was super clean. The room was extremely cozy and virtually soundproof. Very nice neighborhood, really close to everything -- downtown and surrounding. Unbelievable bargain for the rate. Would recommend for any couple or single person stay for a Pittsburgh trip.
The host is very nice. The room is clean and cozy. Kitties are so cute! I enjoy my stay in Pittsburgh.
Had a great stay at Charles's place, room and bathroom were as described. I was interviewing at Allegheny General Hospital, his place was a short 5 min walk from the hospital. Was able to text Charles about arrival time and he was quick to respond. Would recommend for anyone who needs to stay on the north side of Pittsburgh.
Charles est un hôte très accueillant et très discret. La chambre est spacieuse avec une terrasse très agréable et très ensoleillée. La salle de bain privée est parfaitement adaptée par sa disposition et son confort. Le quartier correspond exactement à ce que je recherche : typique, avec des maisons dont on aime deviner l'histoire. Il est par ailleurs pluri-cutlurel ce qui lui donne beaucoup de charme. j'espère que ces vieilles maisons en briques ou parfois même en planches vont perdurer encore pour longtemps. Le quartier est par ailleurs à proximité d'un supermarché eagle (très bien fourni) et du quartier "Deutschland" où se trouve des petits restaurants (le bistro) et des boutiques qui sont à voir. Comme je ne conduis pas, j'ai la plupart du temps fait les trajets à pied et si les distances peuvent paraître longues à première vue, il ne faut que 20 minutes pour relier Downtown au logement. Il y a également de nombreux bus en bas de la rue qui peuvent permettre de faciliter les déplacements. le subway n'est pas très loin également. Je suis restée une semaine et ai, de part le logement et de part le quartier, vraiment eu l'impression d'être une résidente de la ville ce que je recherche dans mes voyages avant tout.
Pour les repas en ville, je recommande le Diamond sur Market place, aussi bien pour le déjeuner que le diner. C'est une bonne restauration typiquement américaine. Vous pourrez également trouver de très beaux et bons cup cake, juste à côté du Diamond dans une "boulangerie" d'origine italienne. Le nom est Mancini's il me semble.

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,
