The guest cottage is a studio apartment adjacent to the garage, separate from the main building on the grounds of a functioning Zen meditation center. Detailed in keeping with the nature of Zen practice, the tatami mat flooring is very comfortable to the foot, and sunlight fills the space. Natural bamboo blinds can be drawn for privacy. A fully functional kitchen & bath with an outdoor patio are ready for your use.

The space
The guest studio apartment is perfect for anyone who needs a respite, a place to listen watch the birds in flight. This is a place to get away from the racket of our lives, to taste again... the beauty of simplicity and the gentleness that often comes with it.

Guest access
The studio apartment - is on the grounds of the Zen Center of Pittsburgh. The grounds are walkable, and there are activities and a schedule associated with the Center in which guests may participate. Check out our website by googling "Zen Center of Pittsburgh" for more information.

Sewickley, Pennsylvania, United States

The Zen Center of Pittsburgh is within a 10 minute drive to the charming town center of Sewickley, PA. There are a variety of shops and restaurants. Head off in the other directions and one will find a local nursery, some local produce markets and parks. Otherwise, country roads wind their way down, around and along the hills and dales following the streams which are all so characteristic of our region --- PS It is great for biking!

Due to the coronavirus, we’re taking extra care to disinfect frequently touched surfaces between reservations. The guest cottage is a perfect place to take a break from routine. We are offering reduced rates for weekly stays. The head priest, his spouse, and resident coordinator invite you to stay in the guest suite at Deep Spring Temple. Deep Spring Temple is an official Buddhist temple in the Soto Zen Tradition, offering services, daily meditation and residential Zen training for novice priests and lay practitioners. Under the auspices of the Zen Center of Pittsburgh workshops, classes, monthly and annual Zen meditation intensive retreats are held for the practicing members and the general public. The resident priest Kotoku and his wife Colleen Crivello live and work at the Temple along with their friendly pets; a dog and two cats. We invite you to reserve our guest suite for personal retreats and peaceful stays. Everyone is invited to reserve the suite, we ask only that you enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and respect the nature of a Buddhist Temple. We are located on 14 beautiful acres near the village of Sewickley Pennsylvania, 15 miles from the airport, and 20 miles from the city of Pittsburgh.
