Newly Renovated 1920's Farm House with Scenic Views of the Mountain!!
Description from the manager
Situated across from a large meadow the Marietta house is the perfect escape from the outside world! The Marietta House is a newly renovated 1920's farm house that accommodates 22 guests!! The house is situated on scenic Route 381 and is just five minutes from Ohiopyle State Park. The home is filled with character and the surrounding scenery exemplifies the mystique and history of the Laurel Mountains. The property is bordered by vast farm fields lined with lush forest that is host to all of nature's colors throughout the four seasons in Ohiopyle. The home features a large wrap around and covered porch with a suspended swing, perfect for relaxing in the warm air any time of day. The eastern view from the porch is awe inspiring as you watch the sun begin the day, and as the moon illuminates the soft forms of the forest canopies and slopes of the surrounding mountains in the twilight. For entertaining indoors, the main floor of the Marietta boasts a large, open living room featuring an oversized decorative fireplace. The living room is also host to a wide screen television and two futon couches. The main level also has a bedroom featuring a queen bed and full bathroom with an accessibility-enhanced, very large and roomy shower. The second floor has three bedrooms equipped with Queen Size beds and a large full bathroom with tub and shower combination. The completely remodeled top floor of the home offers a spacious loft with four queen and two twin beds. The Marietta sits on such a beautiful landscape it is hard to believe it is just minutes from all of the best attractions that the Ohiopyle area offers. This unit also includes High Speed Internet with WIFI throughout the house. Ohiopyle State Park, Frank Lloyd Wright's Kentuck Knob, Christian W. Klay Winery, Fort Necessity National Battlefield and Nemacolin Woodlands Resort & Spa are all within a ten minute drive. Just fifteen minutes away will find you at Frank Lloyd Wright's crowning architectural achievement, Fallingwater.

I would absolutely rent a house from OVR again. The staff was organized and prompt (sent materials with everything I needed to know). Marietta house was clean, had a ton of beds and close to Ohiopyle (only downside is that it has 2 bathrooms for 22 people). The trip was a pleasure and so was this company. No complaints.

WOW -- this house was even better than we expected. This was my first time to rent a property, as well as my first visit to Ohiopyle. The house was incredible! So big and very clean. Perfect location close to the lake. Had a wonderful bachelorette weekend!

We did enjoy your vacation spot was a little pricey. And the beds are too small. they were not queen. And my husband had to sleep on the couch. we were disappointed for this reason. as for the home it was nice and had all that we needed for our stay.

I loved the location and size of this house. It could use another bathroom. I found the house a little dirty (specially when there was a tip envelope) I tried to change the number of people who were staying in the house - nobody ever called me back. I left a bunch of messages!!! I ended up paying for more people than who came.

The house was ideally located for a wedding we attended. The kitchen was nicely equipped and we loved having wireless. Our only complaint would be the bathroom on the first floor. Since it was located inside a bedroom, it wasn't always accessible.

I was very impressed with the vacation rental, it had all amenities that you could need as well as a beautiful peaceful, scenic feel. I was very impressed with the location and it provided a peaceful retreat after a long day of rafting. Everything was great for a get-a-way weekend. Thank you very much!

The property was very old and in need of updates, even tho the website stated it was recently updated. The Back door didn't lock, the bathroom door on the 2nd floor didn't shut or lock. There were lots of bugs through out the house, dead and alive. The 2nd floor was controlled by the downstairs thermostat and was EXTREMELY hot at night! I felt for the price we paid, this house should've been in a little better shape. It fit our needs but next year we will be looking for something nicer for that price.

When we first arrived we had no water. We called Tricia and a maintenance man was sent over right away and the water was turned on. He was a very friendly young man and offered his help in anyway. Thank you again for a great stay.

We have some issues with our stay. We are arriving late from out of town. It is just dark to see the property address number. You don't want to drive onto someone's property put the high beam on and look for the right house #. Then when we get in, there is no water! And we don't get a promise that it will be fixed immediately because it's late to find the guy maintain the property. It took us 32 hours to figure out how to start the water from the basement before a guy showed up, who admiited that this happened before. Lastly the dishwasher does not get the water so we hot dried the dirty dish once with smoke coming out the dishwasher. had to call the maint guy again. The rest of the stay is OK. But I can't recommand it to anyone with what happened at the beginning, especially when you fight through late, long drive to get there.

The Marietta house is nice enough, but being located next to a working pasture and barn, it frequently smells like cows. Thus, we spent a lot of time looking for other places to hang out, which meant that we got to see a lot of the Ohiopyle area. The newly renovated loft space in the house made it possible for 13 of us to sleep in the house comfortably. But, the bathrooms are a bit odd (one with a shower literally in a bedroom), so I'm not sure if we would have been comfortable with many more people, even if there were enough beds.

Everything was beautifully maintained and the house had everything we needed. The wrap-around porch was a nice place to hang out, and the attic was a great place for a cousin slumber party. The only part I wasn't thrilled about was the back porch, which was not very inviting,

This was a beautiful old farmhouse with large covered porch. A very good location for activities around Ohiopyle. Only problem was old well for water supply that failed us for 12 hrs. making it impossible to bathe, clean dishes and use toilets.

We had a wonderful time. Marietta House is beautiful beautiful and spacious, room for everyone. It's close proximity to Ohiopyle is a big plus. The only suggestion would be to put a lock on the upstairs bathroom.

The only issue we had was a bad storm came through and knocked out the power, we didn't prepare for this to happen, I would recommend bring flash lights and candles with you just in-case this were to ever happen to someone else. The house was comfortable and very clean, we would stay at this home again in the future.
