My husband and I spend an amazing anniversary weekend at the Montgomery Mansion. The owners, Butch and Shirley Smith are outgoing, great conversationalists and care that their guests enjoy a red-carpet experience! We were welcomed with a personal message on the little board by the front door, and Shirley gave us the grand tour of the property before escorting us to our amazing suite on the third floor of the mansion. Our king bed, ensconced in 1000 count sheets was incredibly comfortable, and we loved the marble bathroom, complete with a sauna and 2 person shower and jacuzzi. Shirley loves to provide little details for her guests, including an amazing assortment of bath gels, lotions and lavender linen spray, vases of fresh roses (from her garden) throughout the suite, chocolates at bedtime and evening snacks. She also keeps a well stock mini refrigerator for her guests usage on the second floor. Guests are treated to incredible candlelight breakfasts served in the dining room on Royal Dolton Old Country Rose china. Shirley is an excellent cook and serves so many selections that one leaves the table with no possible extra room. Each evening we enjoyed relaxing on the front porch while seated on the white wicker porch swing. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay and can hardly wait to return in a few months! For those looking for a wonderful bed and breakfast experience in a beautifully preserved Victorian mansion, be sure to make your reservations soon!

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Known by the locals as the Gingerbread House, this highly historic and ornate victorian home, located 35 minutes from the city of Pitsburgh. It has been restored to beyond it's original beauty and quality of the builder, Robert Porter, to allow for the modern day amenities. This beautiful house has been converted into a beautiful bed & breakfast, ready to treat you to a comfortable night's sleep and a scrumptious meal in the morning. The historic Montgomery Mansion was built in the 1870's by Robert Porter. It was later occupied by the Montgomery family from the early 1900s until the 1970s. The Montgomery Mansion was later owned by the neighboring Sacred Heart Church until it was renovated by the previous owners, the McAuliffe's in the 1990s when it was completely updated to it's current condition. The renovation continues under the direction of Butch and Shirley Smith. ... more less
