Great place to stay. We were in town for a wedding and luckily found this place. They made everything work out perfect even with our time schedule. Stayed in the suite with the private entrance. We slept in and our breakfast was still hot and waiting for us.

The welcome extended by Mr. and Mrs. Paul Kentzel is loaded with genuine warmth. Their breakfasts which THEY prepare consist of food that is fresh and naturally wholesome. The bedrooms are comfortable and beautifully furnished with many antiques The furnishings of the house convey the style of the period of time when the original owners (the Barnards) lived in Emlenton....

Even when the weather shares some rain folks seem to find away to enjoy themselves. We welcome you both to return and explore the region through our eyes with a little slower of a pace and more knowledge of the environment and history of the valley. Thank you for being gracious guest🌻 More

We found the Wilson House to be extremely clean and comfortable. The porch was great and the view of the river was beautiful. We definitely want to come and stay again next year for the week. The beds were comfortable and overall the week was relaxing.

Great place to stay. Cozy and Cathy and Paul are very gracious. Breakfast was good and the guests were congenial . I highly recommend. The old Victorian is located along the Allegheny River. One can sit on the porch and sip coffee in the morning and watch the river go by. "Our Town" feel.

This wonderful, old historic home sits right on the beautiful Allegheny River and Bike Trail, in the quiet and quaint town of Emlenton. The house has been lovingly renovated and returned to its once majestic state, but also has the comforts of modern day, such as air conditioning, and free wifi.
