My husband and I traveled from Pittsburgh for a change of scenery and some peace and quiet for a couple of days. The drive was pleasant, the unit was easy to find, and our stay was restful. I picked this unit specifically for the balcony view; I loved the posted picture and couldn't wait to sit and relax. I was not disappointed.
We appreciated the neat, clean, and updated condo; clear instructions for checking in and out (left on the kitchen counter); and easy-to-access WiFi (thank you!). The queen bed was very comfortable and the black-out blinds super. (I think I'm going to look into buying some for my own home!). We took a peak in the loft, which was set-up nicely with a bed, dresser, TV, and small couch, but had no reason to use it since it was just the two of us. It seemed perfect for kids.
When I made the reservation, I didn't realize that the condo was not air-conditioned; I just didn't think of it. When another reviewer mentioned this, I was mildly concerned since our visit was in July, but the heat was not a problem. The ceiling fan in the living room worked wonderfully, and while the bedroom was a little bit warm at night even with the portable fan, we were fine.
The resort pool is close by and life guarded. Though we didn't use it, the water looked inviting: crystal clean. During our brief stay, we walked on the path around the water behind the condo; hiked the trail through Hidden Valley Resort; toured Fallingwater; started to put together the souvenir puzzle we bought at Fallingwater; ate pizza from the Rustic Mountain shop (menu on the TV stand); lunched outside at Slopeside in Seven Springs; and, of course, read books on that blissful balcony. In the evenings, we heard from the bullfrog, who we, of course, named Jeremiah. :)
The owner, Richard, was easy to contact and quick to reply. It was a breezy transaction and a perfect getaway. We got what we wanted: more room than a hotel along with some private, picturesque outdoor space. Lucky us!
