About Chris & Shannon Lapp

Family owned since purchasing in 2006.

Chris & Shannon Lapp purchased this villa in 2006

Why Chris & Shannon Lapp chose Allegheny Mountains

We bought this home as a vacation place for our family. We enjoy spending time with extended family and friends.

What makes this villa unique

Spending time in this beautiful Victorian home is an experience that will take you back in time. Relax and enjoy sitting on the front porch swing, out back in the screened in porch, the slate patio, or the large yard out back.

We also love heading out to the Bald Eagle State Park to take the kids swimming and boating!

Fun family weekend

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfect for a family reunion. Plenty of beds for people to sleep. The kids and adults enjoyed exploring the old house. Pool table was a nice surprise. Large table in the dining room was perfect for buffet style dining.

Could use newer labels for light switches. Had to try every combo to figure out how to turn on main chandelier on 2nd floor. Also recommend recycling. Need more lighting for screened in porch.

Shannon was very responsive to our questions. Would stay here again!

Family Reunion in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

Eleven total of us brothers, sisters and spouses spent 4 nights in this well-kept Victorian home in a very quiet and nice, friendly neighborhood in the Pennsylvania mountains. We were all very pleased with the comfort and spaciousness of this rental home.

The screened- in porch and huge backyard made it so nice to enjoy the outdoors, and we had nightly campfires on the back patio.

Everything we needed was provided and the home was clean and in good condition.

Stores and restaurants were a few quick miles away and we enjoyed an afternoon renting a pontoon boat at Bald Eagle State Park which was also nearby. The scenic views of the mountains from the lake were beautiful.

This rental helped make our family get-together a special time for all of us.

We would definitely recommend this home, especially for large family groups.

Plenty of room to get the whole family together

  • 4 of 5

We were a party of 17 extended family members. With 3 floors plus a basement, people could frequent the kitchen, dining room and parlor for meals, conversation, and games. We also were able to retreat to our bedrooms when needing some quiet or alone time. The property is equipped with central heating plus many space heaters so we could customize for our temperature requirements. The kitchen is equipped with plenty of dishes and cookware, plus a good built-in dishwasher. We enjoyed the Victorian character of the house, with all its ornate decor, stairways, closets and passageways. Whenever I contacted the owners about a question or concern, they unfailingly, promptly and good-naturedly responded to me.

Amazing property - amazing owners!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this magnificent home. My 6 PSU friends and I first stayed here in May and loved it so much we decided to invite our husbands . We picked a weekend when Penn State was away and just so happened to pick the PSU -Pitt game. We planned a huge tailgate at the house which has a beautiful backyard. The perfect place for a tailgate! Everything was perfect until we realized Friday night that the owners did not have ESPN - the network showing the game. My friends and I all decided to offer to pay for a year's subscription to ESPN if the owners would just call Comcast and get it all set up. When I called Shannon and her husband with our proposal they absolutely refused - to let us pay!!!!!! They not only called and got it all set up for us - they paid for it as well. Just so we could watch our game!!!! We were so overwhelmed with their kindness. They also apologized after the game because we didn't win -

I can not tell you how much we love this beautiful home - it is so well-appointed with everything you could possibly need.

We plan on many return visits!!!!!

Penn State game stay - we're 1/2 hour away.

Only 5 minutes from the beautiful Bald Eagle State Park where you can enjoy a sand beach with swimming, boating, fishing, etc.
