Location + Surroundings
Set on a peaceful, 30-acre property in the scenic Laurel Highlands, this accommodation is located in the countryside of Confluence, Pennsylvania, where it is situated in the Ursina borough of Somerset County. Just two miles to the west, guests will find the confluence for which the area is named—the threefold junction of the Youghiogheny River, the Casselman River, and Laurel Hill Creek, the latter of which is just a three-minute stroll away from the accommodation. The latter is part of a bed and breakfast compound that consists of two buildings--the main residence (in which the accommodation is located) and a cottage that is next door to it.
About five minutes to the west, guests will find the 150-mile Great Allegheny Passage trail skirting along the western bank of the Youghiogheny River. Following the trail and the river northward, guests will reach Ohiopyle State Park, which encompasses 20,500 acres of rugged terrain blanketed in verdant forests full of oak, hickory, and tulip trees. Holding the distinction of being a designated Important Mammal and Bird Area, the park is home to an abundance of wildlife, including black bears, bobcats, white-tailed deer, river otters, kingfishers, ospreys, and mergansers. The park also contains the Ferncliff Peninsula Natural Area, which is a designated National Natural Landmark because of its unique biodiversity, as well as a number of picturesque waterfalls, including the 20-foot Ohiopyle Falls and 30-foot Cucumber Falls.
Other nearby natural attractions include Bear Run Nature Reserve, State Game Lands 51 and 111, and Laurel Ridge State Park, all of which are contiguous with Ohiopyle State Park. Following the Great Allegheny Passage to the south, guests will find yet another attraction: Youghiogheny River Lake, which is a popular recreation area. Teeming with trout year-round, the waters of the lake are especially attractive to fishers, while its 16-mile length entices power boating and water-skiing enthusiasts.
A number of other attractions can be reached within a half hour or so drive of the accommodation, including the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed residences of Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob, the historic French and Indian War site of Fort Necessity National Battlefield, the highest point in all of Pennsylvania at Mount Davis, and three resorts with year-round activity options: Wisp Resort at Deep Creek Lake, Seven Springs Mountain Resort, and the Nemacolin Woodlands Resort.
Within an hour's drive, guests can also reach the Flight 93 National Memorial, Laurel Caverns, and Fort Ligonier. The accommodation is about an hour and a half from Pittsburgh, where the nearest international airport is located. Read More

With numerous parklands, waterways, attractions, and resorts near the accommodation, guests will enjoy an abundance of outdoor activities during their getaway. In just five minutes, they can reach the 150-mile long Great Allegheny Passage trail, where they can go hiking and biking. Heading north on the trail, guests will soon enter Ohiopyle State Park, which offers a treasure trove of activity options.
Here, guests will find 79 miles of trails for hiking, 27 miles of trails for biking, 11.6 miles for horseback riding, 33.9 miles of trails for cross-country skiing, and 15.9 miles of trails for snowmobiling on the Sugarloaf Trail System and Pressley Ridge Trail.
While exploring the trails, guests will have many opportunities for wildlife viewing in the Important Mammal and Bird Area-designated park, with black bears, bobcats, white-tailed deer, river otters, kingfishers, ospreys, and mergansers being just some of the mammals and birds to spot.
At the park, guests can also go climbing at the Meadow Run Climbing Area and the Bruner Run Climbing Area, sledding at the Sugarloaf Snowmobile and Mountain Bike Area, and trout fishing on the Youghiogheny River, where guests can also go whitewater rafting, kayaking, and canoeing.
For more water sports, fishing, and boating, guests can head to Youghiogheny River Lake. Extending 16 miles, the lake is an especially popular venue for power boating and water-skiing. It is also one of the few places in Pennsylvania where fishers can catch trout year-round. Guests can also go stand-up paddle boarding on the lake and the Youghiogheny River, with lessons, rentals, and tours available from Wilderness Voyageurs, which offers rafting, biking, and fly fishing tours as well.
For downhill skiing and snowboarding, guests can head to Wisp Ski Resort at Deep Creek Lake, Seven Springs Mountain Resort, and the Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. At these resorts, guests will find a number of other year-round activity options, such as golfing, mini golfing, zip-lining, off-roading, paintballing. The resorts also provide guests with a variety of options for dining, shopping, and enjoying massages and spa services.
