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.

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.

The lodge is furnished to give a very cozy feeling, the fireplace and the high ceilings are great. Clean and offered all the amenities I needed for a skiing weekend including a very well equipped kitchen. Highly recommended!

We had a wonderful time at the Slack Shack! It is a little piece of heaven tucked into the mountain. Everything you could need is provided! Just needed to pack ourselves and go. I would love the chance to stay at this wonderful "shack" again!

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5
Over the holiday weekend we rented this property. I would just like to voice my appreciation to you and your staff. Booking a rental from out of state is always interesting to say the least. I was pleasantly surprised when we entered the property. It was all that the brochure listed and current. So many times the pictures and the amenities are from many years past and does not represent the property at the present time. The property was very clean and very well stocked. My family and I had a great time and will be back. Due in part to you and your staff. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
