Parker House is a guest house, so don't expect a breakfast--not to worry, breakfast at Sister's down the street was just right. Do expect immaculately clean, tidy, and nicely appointed accommodations. This was our first stop as we visited Fallingwater and continued on bike along the GAP trail. We arrived late, and owner Mary was waiting for us with a glowing fire in the front living room's gorgeous fireplace. Also there was a kitchen (coffee, mugs, cream, etc. provided) for our use. We left saying, "Can it get any better?"

Room Tip: We shared a nice-sized bath/shower with our friends who were in a separate room--no need for more.

This was our third time at the Parker House. That should tell you all you need to know.

There is plenty of room in the house to get away even when it is full.

We like the fact that it has a kitchen you can use to make breakfast, lunch and/or dinner.

Mary is a great hostess.

The Parker House was a great place to stay! We had a group of six and were staying up there for a rafting/biking trip. It was only a quick fifteen minute drive from where we rafted and the bike trail is only one block away. Everything from the booking to the check out was easy. The owners are very accommodating and easy to deal with. The property was lovely with numerous opening community living areas so it never felt crowded and 3 porches to relax on outside. Our group had three of the rooms with private bathrooms and they were all lovely. Very clean and neat, with no clutter. Towels are provided (though we did bring our own which was good because they were a little musty smelling) and so is the coffee and some sodas in the fridge. There is a communal fridge so we brought snacks and drinks and left everything out on the patio and in the kitchen. No one bothered it. While we staying in Confluence we at The Rivers Edge which is a very cute restaurant on the river, though the food was average. The other restaurant we ate at was Sisters Cafe which was breakfast, lunch and dinner and was inexpensive and good. We will definitely try the BBQ place next time because when we rode by it smelled great. Overall, the property is great and owner, Mary was very nice. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Parker House on our way through Confluence while riding the Great Allegheny Passage. This was not the first time that two of the folks in my group had been there, and apparently the problems they had the first time were not an aberration. First of all, this is NOT a B&B. The owner informed me that this was a "guest house" so don't expect breakfast. Second, they seem to have communication issues between the husband and wife owners. On both occasions the husband made the reservations or arrangements but the wife was the only one that showed up and wouldn't honor what the husband had set up or didn't care that the reservation wasn't right. When we arrived the house was locked and no one around. We were on time and the sign on the door confirmed it. We had to wait until the owner got around to coming over. They don't stay on the premises, so once she checks you in you're on your own. There is no sheltered or secure storage for bicycles. They will loan you a lock, but your bike will sit outside in plain view and bad weather. It rained hard the night we were there. The house is nice, the bed was comfortable, but the attitude reflects "we're the only game in town so take it or leave it". Thankfully there are now a few other options in Confluence and the next time I travel through there I'll be trying one of them.

theparkerhouse, Owner at The Parker House, responded to this review, July 18, 2012
I am sorry to hear that this particular guest was disappointed in their stay with us. Indeed, The Parker House is a guest house. It has been so since our opening more than twelve years ago and so the guest who stayed with us previously must have forgotten about that. And, as a guest house, unlike our counter-part (Bed & Breakfasts), we do not serve a breakfast. Instead, The Parker House does have a fully-equipped kitchen for guests to use at any time. Complimentary hot and cold beverages are available at any time. Most of our guests enjoy the freedom of coming and going at their own pace, fixing snacks or meals as they so choose.
The Parker House has an assortment of single and double bedrooms. Two of the rooms do share a bath. These two rooms are often used by families or friends who know one another and want to benefit from the reduced rate. The other five rooms do have private bathrooms. Many groups schedule their trips months in advance and it is not uncommon for the members of a group to change in their mix of singles, doubles, couples, and family groups by the time they come to stay with us. With this particular group, I was actually delighted that we had empty rooms that night and we were able to adjust the room assignments to fit all members of the group. I am sure after a long days’ ride the few minutes to adjust the rooms seemed inordinately long and I do apologize for that delay. I encourage guests to view the details of our web site in planning their trip. Each of the bedrooms is pictured in the photo tour and the common areas – kitchen, living room, dining room, library and sun room are shown as well.

The Parker House exceeds our expectations. We were with a group of four bike riding couples staying at the house. Access to the bike trail is a short block away over a scenic bridge. The house is perfect for a group stay. There is an outdoor porch which is a great spot to get together. There is also a patio on the lawn side of the house. Mary, the hostess was very pleasant and helpful. Our room on the second floor overlooked the lush lawn with a view of the river. The room itself was comfortable and spacious. The central kitchen area was also handy. To top it all off, a lovely little restaurant (The Rivers Edge) is located right next to the Parker House.

We'll be back, for sure.

This was our first time at Parker House. Located in the quiet town of Confluence, PA. Part of Confluence is like a small peninsula where the Youghiogheny and Casselman Rivers converge with Laurel Hill Creek. If you enjoy biking, hiking or just enjoy relaxing by the river, this is a great place to visit. Parker House is a "B&B without the B". It's a very nice, very clean Inn with all the comforts of home. Our rooms were nicely carpeted and had a sizeable bathroom with shower. The bedding was comfortable. What we really liked were the rest of the home too, which has a large sun room, nice living room with fireplace, a TV/library room, Dining room and a full kitchen which is open for everyone to use. Bring your own food if you like or eat out at one of the few restaurants in town. Since everyone is on their own schedule with the abundance of outdoor activities in the area, breakfast is on your own, hence the "B" vs. "B&B". The owners and staff live nearby, and are not on-site throughout the day, but are just a phone call away. They come by every morning to clean, etc. We would definitely come back!

Room Tip: They have a refrigerator, in the kitchen, so bring your own food. There are limited restaurants in C...
