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.

The space
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 queen size mattress has been voted very comfortable by our friends who tested the room for us.

The Treetop 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.

Please note:
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, portable air conditioning unit, sound 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 an eight 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.

COVID-19
We are currently only renting one guest room at a time to comply with social distancing guidelines. The room is blocked the night following a stay, throughly cleaned and disenfected with an air purifier and 70% alcohol disenfecting spray with paper towels provided for your use. We request guests wear a face mask in common spaces as this is our home.

Guest access
Guests have their own room overlooking the Casselman River and the west side of Confluence. The sunroom, bathroom, library, living room, dining room, and kitchen are all shared space and available for use. Our home is a peaceful respite after a long drive, hiking, rafting, biking, visiting architecture, or sightseeing. Feel free to relax and unplug.

Other things to note
Indoor overnight bicycle storage is available.

If you are a light sleeper, bring ear plugs as the trains run throughout the night and the Confluence Volunteer Fire Department is a block away. Ear plugs are also provided in the guest room.

Bicycles are available to rent at the Confluence Cyclery on the town square two blocks away.

High-speed fiber optic internet installation has been delayed by the vendor (Comcast) from end of June 2019 to mid-August. Until then, wifi is not available for guests.

Location

Confluence, Pennsylvania, United States

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.

After living for over two decades on the West Coast -- Seattle WA and Oakland CA, we moved to a small town in rural Pennsylvania for a 12000 sq ft building. It's been a big shift from urban to rural. To get here, we explored the USA by car over 40 days staying with friends, in Airbnbs, and an occasional hotel room. I always like staying with friends best for their pulse on the place and the comfort of their home.
