Built in 1941 as Mountain Chevrolet Garage on the foundation of the former Confluence Hotel constructed in the late 1880s, our home is the perfect location for a night off the GAP trail or a day trip to Ohiopyle State Park or Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater (15 miles) and Kentucky Knob (13 miles). Second story apartment with river views that feels like a farmhouse and is situated on top of a warehouse. This guest room is one of two in our home. Managed by an artist couple.
This 1940s brick warehouse was a former autodealership and garage with two apartments above. The apartments were renovated into one 3200 sqft apartment in the 1990s by a previous owner. It feels like a farm house on top of a warehouse with picturesque views of the river, town, trees and mountains.
The guest room is located in the west wing of this second story apartment facing the Casselman River, Sugarloaf Mountain, and the west side of Confluence. The full size mattress is on the medium firm/soft side.
The Riverview Room is one of two guest rooms in the west wing that we have listed on AirBnB. The full bathroom in the apartment is shared with guests from the other room and is the main bathroom in our home. However, we do have our own bathroom located in the master suite. A half bath is located in the storefront, the room where we greet you on the street level.
1.) There is a 19-step staircase to access the apartment.
2.) We do not have central air conditioning. There are window and/or portable AC units in each bedroom.
Room is equipped with clean sheets, hypoallergenic pillows (4) and comforter, ceiling fan, window air conditioning unit, white noise machine, extra blanket, kleenex, jar of filtered water and glasses, and ear plugs. Towels and washclothes are located in the shared bath.
At the top of the stairs is a large sunroom -- perfect for relaxation, reading a book, eating a meal, savoring a cup of coffee or tea (provided). Other common areas include library, living room, kitchen, and dining room.
We are a five minute bike ride (.8 of a mile) from the Great Allegheny Passage (GAP) Trail in Confluence, 26 minutes (15 miles) by car to Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater and 23 minutes (13 miles) to his later home, Kentuck Knob. Whitewater rafting, fly fishing, hiking, biking, and skiing are all close by.
Confluence is a small rural mountain town in SW Somerset County, Pennsylvania at the confluence of the Youghiogheny and Casselman rivers and the Laurel Hill creek. We are located two blocks from the town square which features Confluence Cyclery, a locally-owned hardware store, post office, two banks, produce store, and gas station/restuarant. A grocery store is five blocks away. Other restuarants are located a little further out -- The River's Edge Cafe is six blocks away on the west side of town accessible via a foot/bike bridge over the Casselman -- and Lucky Dog Cafe (.8 of a mile) near the GAP trail off of 281.
Trains run along Latrobe Ave through the day and night. And the Confluence Volunteer Fire Department is a block away.
