Be whisked away to a magical B&B in the heart of Pittsburgh. Karl and Jeff are amazing owners. Hospitality is number #1 here. The home is a masterpiece. The Boggs Mansion is classy and immaculately maintained. It is quaint and very laid back. However, you will feel like a king or queen in this architectual splendid castle. My husband and I came into town for a few days. We quite didn't know what to expect and the mansion knocked our socks off. It is convenient to Heinz Field, The National Aviary, Warhol Museum, Mattress Factory and Rivers Casino. In fact, for the Steelers game, we were able to walk a few blocks over and not pay the $40 parking fee.
The continental breakfast was top-notch with eggs, coffee, belgian waffles, fresh fruit, pastries, yogurt, cereal, bagels, you name it. They also offer treats throughout the day like their homemade chocolate chip cookies.
This place is in the city so as to other reviewers saying it is "ghetto" is far from the truth. This place is safe and pure luxury. With gorgeous well-kept homes and amazing landscaping all around the North side of Pittsburgh. It is in the city folks. However, the neighborhood is safe and extremely clean. The folks are friendly. There is a gorgeous park across the street. The park contains old mature trees, beautiful landscaped areas, and lovely bridges that go over duck ponds.
You must put Klavon's ice cream on your list of things to see while you are visiting Pittsburgh. It was one of my favorite stops while staying at the B&B.
Jeff and Karl have put a ton of elbow grease into this mansion and it purely shows. I often travel. However, I do not post reviews. If something doesn't knock me out of the ballpark, I usually won't right anything. However, from the grounds to the room (we stayed in Emma's room) Not one detail was left unturned.
I fell in love with the Mexican War Street Inn and I fell in love with the city of Pittsburgh. You won't find a greater deal out there with such LUXURY.
The pricing is a steal.
