Hemlock. stone and glass tree house close to Seven Springs, Fallingwater & Ohiopyle. This 4BDR home features a wood burning fireplace, gourmet kitchen, dining table for 12, accented by African and Asian art and artifacts and unique hand-made craftsman light fixtures, and is steps away from the Roaring Run Nature Area. Hike, Bike, Ski or just relax.

The space
This rustic hemlock, glass and stone lodge nestled in the trees houses collections from a lifetime of travel in Europe, Africa and Asia. An ideal spot for friends, families, reunions or team building.

The living area on the upper floor sets you right among the trees. Dream of gathering family and friends at dinner? The teak dining table seats 12 to 14, and is surrounded by windows. The open plan kitchen and living area boasts a wood burning fireplace and leather sectional which is perfect for watching the Steelers, having a glass of wine by the log fire, or enjoying a game night with family or friends. We love to cook, so the galley kitchen, updated in 2021, is filled with everything a chef would want. Like fresh air? The raised deck off the dining room has a grill and high-top fire-pit table, so whether you're having a leisurely breakfast, an evening cocktail or after dinner drink you feel like you're in the trees. Also on the upper floor, the ensuite king MBR is spacious, with a ceiling fan and AC for the few nights it's warm enough that you want to cool down.

Downstairs there's a unique queen MBR in a spacious stone and wood room with a wood burning stove, two love seats (that pull out into single beds if needed), and TV/DVD - making it a second getaway living area as well. Across the entry there's a well appointed queen BR and a 4 bed bunk room downstairs, with full bath and laundry.

The entry is the perfect place to take off muddy or snowy boots, or to gear up when headed outside. There is ample parking in the drive and - if necessary - on the street.

It is a rural home in the woods, which means that mice, chipmunks, squirrels (and flying squirrels), deer, bats and birds are our constant companions. Several neighbors have dogs, and occasionally we have also had bear in the area, particularly in spring when they are coming out of hibernation, so please be aware of what is around.

My husband Rick and I love life - food, travel, family, friends, activities. We are avid bikers, skiers, hikers, etc. One lawyer and one international development specialist, we have been lucky to have had the chance to live and travel around the world. With our base in Pittsburgh, we do love our place in the Laurel Highlands. We list our property there (Smiling Mountain Lodge, in Champion PA) so we know what it means to respect and take care of your home - as we want guests to treat ours.
