“Fabulous Find!”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

I love historic places and was driving around exploring for a place to stay near Meadowcroft Rockshelter in Avella, PA when I stumbled upon this gem. This was much more than lodging- it was an event in itself! I had intended to find someplace to stay, get up early and then spend the day at Meadowcroft, but never left this property until 1:00 in the afternoon! We spent hours exploring the treasures within and enjoying taking in the beauty of the grounds while sitting on the front porch. The total atmosphere was extraordinary! This is a place designed for relaxing and the staff assures that you will have that experience. Breakfast was included and was made to order and served wherever we wanted to have it. It was hard to choose between the courtyard, front porch or one of the gorgeous rooms inside! The staff went above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience. I have stayed at bed & breakfasts all over the country and must say that this is among my top experiences ever. And definitely among the most reasonably priced! Make sure you ask for a tour of the interior for added enjoyment! The owner of this property has done an excellent job with the restoration and with hiring dedicated, fantastic personnel!
Thank you Adam, Chad and staff for a wonderful experience!

Room Tip: Ask for a luxury room on the historic side of the property.

This gem is a bit out of the way, but worth every effort to get there. The historic manor house has countless treasures from time it was built, well preserved and beautifully displayed in the public rooms. The rooms have their historic look but are updated with flat-screen TVs, air conditioning, and a comfortable lounge chair. The 700-acre property sitting above the Ohio River has charm, old buildings, lots of wildlife, plenty of room to roam, and gracious hosts. There are three levels of rooms--the deluxe rooms that are the original manor bedrooms; slightly smaller rooms, mostly with their own baths, which were the staff rooms at the back of the manor; and economy rooms ($49!) upgraded from what was an assisted living wing added later. As a manor guest, you have the run of the architecturally interesting manor and all its fascinating special rooms--the Oriental room with its large curved window seat, the Indian room, the music room, the pool room, a beautiful dining room, a library, and a large living room, among others. A bountiful breakfast is included. In addition to the occasional visit, this facility is large and special enough to host a corporate retreat, family reunion, celebration, or any other special occasion. On-site catering is provided for groups. Only 45 minutes from Pittsburgh (30 minutes from Wheeling), I found this treasure to be a truly special experience, and very reasonably priced for the quality of the stay. It's really reminiscent of some fine old English or European properties.

Room Tip: At $119/night, pick the manor rooms--they are special.

This may have been the most unusual hotel I have ever stayed at. We found it on the internet and thought it looked interesting. We were not disappointed. Originally built by the playboy son of a millionaire about 100 years ago, it is a very large estate on a very high hill. For most of its life the estate belonged to various Catholic institutions, and it has recently passed into private hands and is starting a new life as a hotel and event center. There is simply no place like it. To arrive, you have to drive up a long, bumpy road. You start to come to some buildings and then arrive at the Manor, Parts of the outside still need to be rehabbed, but inside there are wonderful lush public rooms and hallways and some very nice guest rooms. There is also a beautiful chapel from its days as a Catholic retirement home.

The guys who are turning this into a hotel could not have been nicer. This is not a corporate make-over, but appears to be the work of a few individuals with a vision and a love of antiques and old places. I really really hope they succeed, because this place is unique and deserves to stay open to the public. We got a nice tray of cheese and wine in the evening, and a great breakfast. I had one of the best night's sleep ever there. If you like unusual places off the beaten path, Aspen Manor is for you. It would be a great place for a wedding. I was travelling with my three sisters on our annual "Sisters' trip" and we all really enjoyed our stay. I hope to get back there some day. Go now while you have the chance. Rates were reasonable. They have a good website with photos and information.
