Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This creekside home provides the perfect spot for a quiet, secluded retreat. As the name suggests, this charming house sits in a wooded glen next to a tranquil, stocked mountain stream. Inside you'll find spacious accommodations including a dining/living room area, full kitchen, sunroom, 2 bathrooms, 4 bedrooms, a second-floor sitting room and laundry room. And since you’re just a mile from town, it’s just a short drive or bike ride to Ligonier’s many shops and eateries.

Rustic elegance on the banks of the Loyalhanna Creek. Fall asleep to the sounds of the babbling brook in one of the house’s four bedrooms.

The Living Room is large and spacious with its comfortable furniture, working fireplace, and flat-screen television. It is the definition of relaxation. The roomy kitchen will allow you to indulge your inner chef as you prepare meals for the ones you love. Situated right off the living room, the dining room features a old-fashioned country dining room set, perfect for a memorable family gathering. If you want a spot to play a board game with the kids or just escape with a warm cup of tea, the sunroom’s the place to be.

Fire up the stone barbeque, stretch out in an Adirondack chair, or just stroll around the spacious grounds that surround the Creekside house. The kids will love running around the yard, playing on the play set, or exploring down by the creek. Plenty of fishing rods for your use in the stocked creek with bait available in two local shops.

We enjoyed our weekend at Creekside! The weather was perfect, and even more delightful was the view out every window of the beautiful rhododendron. There was plenty of space for our group of six ladies. We loved the porch! It was so refreshing to listen to the bubbling creek and the morning bird song while we enjoyed a hot cup of tea together.

Perfect time and place............

  • 5 of 5

We were blessed to return to this beautiful property after a three year absence. Once again it provided for all our needs and wants. It is beautifully maintained and the property manager and owner are very attentive to clients and all the amenities provided. What's not to love about Ligonier...recently voted in the top 10 of Kiplinger's 10 ten best places to retire?! I guess I did it backwards.....I spent the first 18years of my life here and now, thanks to Bev Watt and crew, , my family and I can come back and enjoy friends and family, relive old memories and create new ones. Our grandsons (ages 13, 10 and 7) absolutely LOVE the place. Never a dull moment, according to them. Pittsburgh is very accessible for day trips and the beauty and history of the area could keep one coming back for years in all seasons and there would still be new things to discover. Thank you for providing this beautiful property . We love it and it means so much on so many levels to be able to return.

By the way, all you foodies out there, Western PA has GREAT food for all palates. Don't miss the Pie Shoppe in Laughlintown.

Relaxing and cozy.

  • 5 of 5

Love the property! Kids enjoyed the creek, got a little fishing in, and enjoyed the house with all of its amenities. Comfy beds, plush towels, and little touches of home made this the nicest house we've rented yet. Beats out hotels any day of the year! We would absolutely stay here again in the summer, as it's so close to Idlewild. Thank you for a great stay!

Beautiful creekside getaway

  • 4 of 5

First the good, and there's a lot of good. This is a gorgeous cottage: tastefully and thoughtfully decorated, well-equipped with everything needed for cooking and serving meals, lots of space for a large group like ours (four adults and four kids). It has steps down to the creek for wading and skipping stones; there's a grill for cooking out and a fire pit for making s'mores. It's very convenient to downtown Ligonier and Idlewild Park. We really enjoyed ourselves here and would be happy to return.

But, it would not be completely honest to review this house and not mention that the warnings in the house instructions about food storage are there for a good reason. We had a bag of bread nibbled open (apparently putting food away means locking it in solid containers, not just sealing it in a bag!) and we spotted the small furry culprits themselves running through the dining room. So, if you're squeamish about mice, you might want to wait until after a visit from the exterminator. Otherwise, this is a lovely spot.

Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time here. The house is amazing. You feel at home as soon as you walk in. It was clean, comfortable, and spacious. Everything you need is there. The pictures don't do it any justice. It was so much better than what the pictures show. It's in a good location for the attractions in the area and close to town for food and shopping. The owner was quick to answer questions. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone. Thanks for a great trip.

Great cabin with a good location

  • 4 of 5

Has all the amenities for a great cabin experience: about 40 minutes to the local ski resorts; a bunch of hiking trails; and the adjacent town has a cozy feel to it
