Just three miles off of the PA turnpike and four miles from Seven Springs Mountain Resort, nestled in the Laurel Highlands along with Hidden Valley, Falling Water, Ohio Pyle State Park and Ligonier, is this amazingly beautiful historic landmark property called SanaView Farms. The entire property is fed by a natural spring and the newly redone Springhouse Cabin, an historic symbol of the spring, is available to you for a special cozy place to stay.
The springhouse cabin is a one to two person cabin with a futon bed, desk, small fully equipped kitchenette, bathroom, heat and air conditioning. This was designed as a 'tiny house' to be used by guests and garden managers who come to SanaView Farms to visit or to lend a hand. We decided to share it with others since it is such a special place to stay.
SanaView Farms is a beautiful 52 acre historic landmark property that is currently being developed into an organic fruit and vegetable farm. It is such an amazing place that the owners decided to share its beauty with others. Both the one-two person springhouse cabin and the 3 - 4 person bunkhouse cabin (property 655205) are available for folks to enjoy a relaxing stay in the mountains. The farm has a large pond for swimming in the back of the property that joins a 3500 state forest that boasts some of the best hiking trails around.
The springhouse is a small cabin but has everything you need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. The kitchen is equipped with a small dorm-sized refrigerator, toaster oven, cook top, dishes, glasses, pots and pans and silverware.
The entire property is fed by fresh filtered spring water, so all of the water that you use from the faucet and the shower is spring water. There is no need to bring bottled water to SanaView Farms!
You may want to bring your own towels and sheets, soaps and food, to make your stay comfortable without added cleaning fees.

This farm is magical and my son and I knew it as soon as laid eyes on it for the first time.
It is so wonderful to have an historic landmark property that is all fed by fresh filtered spring water, with a huge pond in the back next to a 3000 acre state forest. The property is only three miles off the PA turnpike on your way to Seven Springs Mountain Resort and so many other attractions in the Laurel Mountains.
Sarah, I'm sorry you had such mixed reviews of your stay at our historic farm. The springhouse is one of the oldest buildings in the area next to our log cabin farmhouse. These buildings were built in the 1800s and the springhouse houses the natural spring that feeds all of the buildings on the property. If you only realized how special this is, you may have appreciated the quirkiness of it more. This is not a cabin rental for someone looking for high class. This is rustic and historic and so very cute and cozy. Yes, buildings built in the 1800 do not have level floors. It is a sound structure with a stone foundation built by hand by the great-great grandfather of our farm manager.
There are always extra towels under the sink and sheets and blankets in a bin under the futon. We do have in our instructions that are sent to you that we do ask you to bring your own sheets and towels or let us know and there is a laundry fee if so.
You told us about the wasps that arrived "as you were leaving". They certainly were not there while you were staying or other "critters" for that matter. We shooshed the wasps away which must have come in while you had the door open when you were packing to leave. The wifi service in the mountains does come-and-go at times. That is part of living in the mountains. In terms of yelling nearby? I have no idea as this is a quiet farm with only visitors renting the historic farmhouse, bunkhouse and springhouse. Maybe another renter was having too much fun! Please consider our bunkhouse another time. It is property 655205 which has all five stars and one four or our newly available farmhouse property 756884. These are slightly more money but it seems your expectations would be better met at these cabins. The last folks loved the farmhouse so much they stayed for months.
In terms of breakfast and treats? We never stated that we offer breakfast.
Please know that when you consider taxes and fees etc... this is the least expensive cabin available in the laurel mountains but if offers history and character that is priceless.
Janet was a gracious host and had a beautiful farm to walk about and explore. The cabin was just as presented and had all the essentials that we needed. The only critique would be a different bed, which was a bit rough.
We enjoyed our stay at Sanaview farm. Everyone was helpful, the cottage cozy although we moved over to the larger bunkhouse. The pond is beautiful, a short hike, but we swam in it several times. The farm stand has fresh veggies and we enjoyed homemade granola and fresh green juice.
Thank you Janet.

The Springhouse was a nice stay for our little vacation. We loved the location in regards to wilderness adventures as well as the farm atmosphere. We also appreciated the privacy and the amenities considering we were able to cook all of our meals and shower. However it was confusing because we didn't know which part of the farm we were allowed on and where the trails and pond were located, since we did not encounter the host on our visit.
+ responsive communication
+ a roof over your head
+ a lock on the door
+ climate control (heat and AC)
+ easy to cook simple meals
+ beautiful area of the country (my favorites are the nearby drive-in, the pie shop in laughlintown, linn run state park, ohiopyle, and kentuck knob)
- wasps (5 gathered inside on the window when i left)
- uncomfortable futon even with the extra padding (i didn't try the air mattress)
- people shouting nearby in the dark
- non-existent wifi
- plastic shower curtain on a wobbly tension rod
- very sloped floor (15* or so)
- holes in the floorboards where critters could get in
- no special treatment (no towels, linens, travel information, treats from the farm, breakfast, etc.)
- no recycling basket
it was too expensive for too few creature comforts for me.
Loved the little cabin. It is bigger than it looks on the website. Very clean and clutter free. The owner was great to work with. She even put a daffodil in our cabin which doesn't sound like much but it gave the place a welcoming feel. I will definitely come back!
The owner wasn't home the entire time. The spring house was pretty much as advertised, but dirty and lacking in decent amenities. I was very glad that I took my own linens, towels, and blowup mattress. I had to kill a half dozen bugs over a two day period because the window wasn't great and they crawled in. I was awoken every morning by birds fighting - I think they were trying to build a nest near the hole for the heater/ac. I also had to buy toilet paper because there was only one roll provided. The farm was pretty, with a little pond and creek about a mile back on the property that I explored. There was no information about the farm or area or anything inside the cabin, so I just had to figure stuff out for myself. I ended up driving to Ligonier both days to eat and shop.
This is a true one-of-kind experience to stay at this amazing 52-acre historic organic farm nestled in the Laurel Mountains near Seven Springs Mountain Resort, Hidden Valley, Ligonier, Fallingwater and Ohiopyle State Park. The farm property includes a huge pond for swimming and is adjacent to a 3000-acre state forest with the most incredible hiking trails. Just a few miles off of the turnpike you will surround yourself with the amazing feeling of living on a restored historic farm. Rent this incredibly cozy one-room plus one bathroom cabin. The springhouse is the small building to the right of the brown farmhouse. The cabins has been newly redone with an equipped kitchennette and lovely bath. In the springhouse, the one futon sleeps one very comfortably as you enjoy a relaxing night on this quiet farm.
