Loved this place during my work on the chimneys at the Clairton Mill. Felt like home and enjoyed the friendship and hospitality during my 2 month stay. Liked the "Last Supper" painting so much Melanie let me take it home to put in my camper at home. Thanks. I appreciated your kindness during my stay. Sure beats any hotel room!

Great Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here for a weekend away and it was a great place to stay. It's the perfect size for two, and has a great location to restaurants, stores and shops in town. The only reason I wouldn't suggest staying here is so it's not booked next time my wife and I decide to take a weekend away!

If you're looking for a romantic getaway, this is the place to go.

Owner's Response: Hello Megan and Joe, It was a real pleasure to have you as our guests at "The Happy Days Hideaway for Two" and sooooo glad you enjoyed your stay! I think you two gave the Pittsburgh Penguins that little edge in the playoffs as you are from Blue Jacket territory and we WON!!!! We look forward to having you return in the future -- you are a lovely couple! God bless!

Fantastic Place to Stay. We Didn't Want to Leave!

Fantastic Place to Stay. We Didn't Want to Leave!

My husband and I always spend a few romantic days away from the family after Christmas. Our stay at the Nostalgic Guesthouse was an amazing experience for us.

First, there is Melanie, the owner, who could not have been more informative and responsive. She called before our visit and answered all of my questions about the local area. I had a great feeling about our trip before we even left New York!

We went to the Back Porch for dinner as she'd recommended, and it was delicious. Good wine selection and, as she suggested, we got a table on the lower level, which was very atmospheric. The local supermarket she mentioned, Daritza's, was well stocked and a quick walk from the house. No need to get back in the car.

Melanie's establishment is truly a trip down memory lane! Not only is is chock full of nostalgia from our childhoods (and our parents and grandparents), the stuff is in great condition. Beyond that, though, the place is decorated beautifully. It's not hokey - it's gorgeous! And Melanie keeps a CLEAN place. It was immaculate, a quality that is very important to me.

The bed was high quality. Even the pillows were great! (I always bring my own, just in case, but Melanie's were really nice!)

She graciously gave us a tour of the main house (we stayed in the Hideaway), and it really should be a historic landmark. We had so much fun checking it out. Again, the decor was beautiful, really well done. Melanie, you have a great eye!

We used the cottage as a base for our annual pilgrimage to Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob. My husband and I are architecture buffs, and love to visit these amazing sites to be inspired. We had an especially beautiful visit because of the blanket of snow. Don't miss the sculpture park at Kentuck Knob. We also love to go to the Uniontown Mall for the great sales after Christmas (Burlington Coat Factory!), and to catch up on our movies. We also thrifted a bunch. There's a huge Goodwill at the mall. Bought two tennis rackets in great condition for $2 each. Fun!

Thank you, Melanie. We will definitely return!

Owner's Response: Hello Jodi,
It was our pleasure to meet you and your husband (+ lovely photo of your precious daughter) and so happy that we were able to make your stay in the Hideaway a comfy, cozy & memorable one. I so enjoyed our little chit chats during the tour of the Good OL' Days House and really look forward to meeting the rest of your 'family' for a tour down memory lane for all....perhaps in the fall?? How do you like that rhyme? P.S. This Monongahela Valley is filled with "Goodwill" stores and dozens of antique stores where you are sure to take home nostalgic treasures at a great price. Best Wishes for a Happy New Year, and stay warm and we are bracing for a deep winter freeze! God Bless! Melanie P

This place is ripped straight out of the 60-70's. All of the furnishings are almost museum quality. All this AND the place is clean and VERY comfortable too! I was treated with a wonderful stay. I've rented it before and I WILL use it again whenever I need to go to the Pittsburgh area.
