About the Owner

We built this chalet in 1979 and it's been a labor of love ever since. We live in the Pittsburgh area, so we are able to maintain and closely monitor the property, allowing you to enjoy your time in the Laurel Highlands.

This place was awesome! Just the right size for my family and my cousins family for our annual ski trip. This is the first ski trip we have taken to The Seven Springs area and we have determined it will not be our last. The location of the house was awesome, comfy beds, well equipped kitchen and storage items meant we had to bring less which was great. Fireplace can be a bit tricky. Heat controls have to be spot on but we had very cold nights. Would definitely rent this place again, we loved us son SLACK SHACK!!!

Perfect Winter Spot!

  • 5 of 5
We had a family ski getaway and could not have been happier with the Slack Shack. It's super clean, cozy and the perfect spot to sit inside by the fire and watch the snow fall outside. The fireplace is beautiful and really adds to the cabin feel of the place. They had everything we needed including a pack and play and a highchair which is really convenient if you're travelling with little kids. The hill in the yard was great for tubing and Seven Springs was a quick 5 minute drive up the road. I would recommend this place to anyone and we will definitely be going back. Loved it!

We have been coming to the Slack Shack for about 10 years for our annual girls getaway. We absolutely love the Slack Shack because it is gorgeous inside and it can accommodate all of us!!!! We love being inside with the fireplace lit - very cozy! And it is spacious enough for all of us to be together. The past couple years we were able to light the firepit outside and hang out. And the Slack Shack has everything you need which makes packing much easier - full kitchen, towels, sheets, washer, dryer, logs for fireplace, etc... I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this place for a getaway!!!

The Slack Shack is extremely cozy, full of all the amenities you could want and need for a getaway!! We were there for the wine festival this year and we all really enjoyed our time there. We will be coming back for sure. It's very peaceful in it's location! We lived sitting out on the porch and enjoying the crisp clean air and looking at the leaves changing! I would recommend this place to any and everyone!!

Excellent cozy cabin!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had a mini-reunion at Seven Springs this past weekend and this cabin was wonderful. We had 8 people and felt the slack shack accommodated us perfectly. It was well stocked and decorated in a very pleasant and rustic manor. The location can not be beat as it was extremely close to the slopes. I would highly recommend the slack shack and would certainly book it again.

slack shack - great fireplace

  • 3 of 5
the location was very close to seven springs and it backed up to a state park with a stream running next to the property. The firewood was plentiful and the firplace was a nice gatering space. We were a family of 5 and we were really glad that none of the kids brought friends as more than 6 would have been overcrowded. We also would have liked a second tv so the kids could watch one thing and the adults another. Make sure you bring all your groceries with you as the nearest grocery is at least 35 minutes away!

Owner's Response: While we can’t control the distance to the grocery store, we can certainly provide a second HDTV in the master bedroom in the near future.
