Great set-up for telecommuting if you can only manage a working vacation. Wireless satellite internet (with download limits), speakerphone, computer desk, and office chair in the very private sunroom.
The property has exclusive river beach access to the Shavers fork river and is engulfed in trees, on one side adjacent to 30+ acres of privately-owned undeveloped and open fields, 100 yards from two other cabins on the other side, and situated just 0.1 mile down the road from the one-million acre Monongahela National Forest.
The house features a stone fireplace, teak floors, vaulted ceilings, natural wood-plank paneling, wireless internet, 3 televisions with DVD players, and a 6 person hot tub. The gameroom includes a 42' flatscreen TV, Wii entertainment system (games available), assorted board games, Hot Wheels track, toddler puzzles, cards, and 100's of other toys and games. The gameroom has a card table and chairs, dart board, and water toys. There are 30+ classic DVDs for various ages available for viewing.
There are beds to sleep 10: Main-level MBR – Queen; Sunroom attached to MBR – Twin Pull-out (ideal for child); Sleeping Loft – Full; Downstairs Bedroom #1 – Queen; Downstairs Bedroom #2 - Full / Twin bunk-bed plus Twin trundle. The game room can accommodate cots if needed (available upon request).
Note that the loft sleeping area is accessed by a stairs without any railing. This area is not well suited for small children and any minors using this area should be supervised by an adult.
For a cozy winter, fall or early spring visit, the house has a forced-air gas furnace, supplemental baseboard heat in downstairs bedrooms, and a wood-burning fireplace in the living room (a moderate amount of firewood is provided).
In winter months, be prepared for snowy road conditions by driving a 4WD or suitable vehicle. The cabin is remote, so its narrow mountain road can be concerning to those not experienced. The gravel road is not suitable for motorcycles.
Owners provide a starter quantity of paper products, bathroom soap, and laundry/dish detergent. Personal toiletries are to be provided by Guests.
Cleaning fee covers laundry, dusting, vacuuming, mopping, bathroom/kitchen sanitizing, and garbage removal. Guests are expected to otherwise leave the house in the condition they found it.
We want to ensure that this property is the right fit for you! This is our vacation home that we are sharing – we are not a resort with a maintenance, concierge, and cleaning staff – and our prices reflect that limitation. That said we have put together as many resources as possible to help you plan your trip and enjoy your stay as if it were your own vacation home. We also have tried to stock the house so that you would not want for much upon your arrival.
If you are looking for a remote mountain getaway and are willing to roll with what comes from a country vacation, you will be hard pressed to find a more beautiful spot!
The road to the house is gravel, and depending on whether the road crew has repaired the road recently there may be potholes. In most cases you can drive around them, but there may be one or two on the way that you'll just need to slowly drive through. There are also no guardrails on the road, but it has several turnouts to allow cars to pass.
Because the house is surrounded by forests and the river, there is plenty of nature to enjoy but also to endure. Mice will occasionally come inside, and although we set hidden and humane traps to keep them from settling in, there is a possibility that you will see them during your stay depending on whether they've found a food source recently (it could be from a prior guest -- not your own doing.) We do, however, check to make sure that the kitchen implements are sanitary at the beginning of your stay.
The bug situation is that we are at a high enough elevation to not have a mosquito problem, but there will be gnats in the field, and moths at night wanting to get into the house. There will also be plenty of dead bugs that wedge themselves between the screens and the windows, and cobwebs sprouting up here and there.
If these aspects of nature are acceptable to you, then you will find a beautiful place of nature in which to relax and enjoy your vacation!

“Great Getaway at Allgetout!”
Thanks for the weekend adventure home! We floated the Shaver and biked the Allegheny Highlands Trail. Superb base camp. Thanks much.
