    Additional Location Information
    The house is located on a fairly steep hill with off street parking as well as a driveway. Note - you must not enter or exit Terrace Avenue from/to Chestnut, it is a very dangerous entry, you'll need to turn onto Summit, Summit turns into Grandview, Grandview bears right, turn Left onto Terrace. It is the very first house on the right hand side (kinda hard to see due to the amount of foliage in front. It is a very quite neighborhood. There are no neighbors on either side of the house, only one behind and in front, below the house. The house is built on a hill and the road is steep. The driveway is tricky to navigate so I suggest getting there in the daylight. There is off street parking in front of the house, so you don't have to use the driveway if you don't want to or if you arrive at night. There is a park n ride and bus stops within walking distance. CVS pharmacy is only 1/2 mile away. Numerous restaurants and taverns on Main street. Grocery stores and re... more

My friend and I stayed at Laura's cottage and found it to be very relaxing. Yes it is "comfy and cozy" like the owner claims. The cottage was clean. We found it to be very peaceful in a private location. You'd think you were in the mountains, yet just a couple miles away from downtown Pittsburgh. I would recommend this... more

Laura was great to work with. She was forthright about maneuvering around the hills and steep places in Pittsburgh too. Very helpful. In fact, when the wi-fi didn't work, she did a round of calls to Verizon and put us in touch with someone who worked us through it. The cottage was cozy, as promised. Nice town as well. more

Thanks so much for the great review! I greatly appreciate it and I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay! Hope to see you both again! Sustainably yours, Laura more

This was a great alternative to hotel/B & B stays we have tried in the past. Plenty of room for us and didn't need much to make it a comfortable stay. If you are looking for peace and quiet with no disturbances this is your ticket. This cottage will give you a real feel for the rolling hills of Pittsburgh.... more
