Why Dave Bachman chose Somerset
The atmosphere and setting of this property is breathtaking. It is very close to the resorts and other attractions in the Laurel Highlands, but is an attraction onto itself.
What makes this Cabin unique
-Beautiful setting among the stream and woodlands. - Trail leads directly into state park; makes for great hike or morning jog - 1 mile/5 min to ski resort. Easy for skiers and nonskiers -Walk to resturaunt with good food and great prices - The atomsphere at sunset during the summer on the stone patio and firepit with a nice glass of wine with friends is priceless.

My husband, two dogs, and I thoroughly enjoyed staying in this quaint, well-appointed, historical bungalow by a babbling stream. We visited three very nice state parks within a 20 minute drive, one of them is right out the back door and down a pathway through the woods. We enjoyed eating meals outside at the picnic table, and by the firepit. The only downside is the close proximity to the road and the road noise. This would be a great home base on a ski vacation as there is a ski resort right up the road. The town of Somerset is only a 10 minute drive away .
Beautiful cabin and surroundings! The only drawbacks were uncomfortable beds and close proximity to the road. But, the backyard is gorgeous, hammock, fire pit, hiking from the cabin grounds, what else could you need? The interior of the cabin is amazing and a rare find. Arts and crafts style is super cozy and the sound of the stream is very relaxing. Overall a wonderful place to spend a weekend!
Thanks much James for your great review. We have found mattress firmness to be a personal preference, with some guests preferring firm or soft. To address this we have now added a highly rated Sleep Number Mattress in the Master Bedroom, which can be adjusted with the push of a button based, and have found this to address a wide variety of preferences.
We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend at the lodge, the owner’s communication was fantastic and the setting beautiful. The backyard by a fast running stream was amazing and, although the trout were a bit elusive - I’d recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a weekend getaway that lives the outdoors and historic homes that are one of a kind unique!
My friends and I had a wonderful time at the cabin - the great room is perfect for card games and hanging out.
The back yard is laid out very well for relaxing/lounging, and the volleyball/badminton area was a perfect area for a few games of corn hole.
All in all, a really neat, old craftsman style cabin, with a really unique setting.
Three Day Runaway
The place was very nice! Just a couple things that I wish would have been a little different. The fireplace in the back room was not working so that room was very cold. Since it was so cold back there, even with the heater on we chose not to hang out in there, so we did not get to enjoy the view while hanging out playing cards. The House was very close to the street. We did know this going there from the reviews but it was to close for us. When relaxing out back to a fire, we did hear the large trucks flying by. We did think that there was a wood burning fireplace. I may have misread that but either way, that was a bummer. That is one of our favorite things. Other than that, this is perfect for the winter months if spending time at the slopes. Super convient to everything. We still enjoyed ourselves very much!
Thanks much for your review! Yes so sorry we had a temporary issue with the remote control for the one fireplace in the back room while you were there and it was a rather cold that weekend. (There are 2 fireplaces, and the other fireplace in the living room had been working). We also provide firewood for the outdoor firepit. It is a convenient location, and in the winter having good road access can be a blessing. Glad to hear you enjoyed your time there!
Peaceful getaway in the Laurel Highlands
David's bungalow was perfect for our brief getaway. We were looking for a nice quiet spot relatively central to hiking trails and Fallingwater. This spot hits the nail on the head. With easy access to many local restaurants (Out of the Fire, Silver Horse Coffee, and the Wine Bar on Main Street) as well as hiking and other attractions (Fallingwater, Cucumber Falls is a must see, as well as hiking in Ohiopyle and the surrounding parks) - who could want more? We were lucky enough to get a dusting of snow overnight which made for a nice surprise and great ambience.
