A Modern House in a Large Nature Reserve in Ligonier Valley!

Family-friendly vacation home in Stahlstown with water park
The still shots just don't do the place the justice it deserves! The Harris House at Randall Reserve it the PERFECT spot for your upcoming family reunion, friendly get together, family retreat, or even wedding!

Located in the resort mountains of western Pennsylvania, only 54 miles east of downtown Pittsburgh, HARRIS HOUSE at the Randall Reserve is a perfect place to be whenever you want to enter the natural world of forest and stream, but at the same time want to reside in a beautiful and comfortable home close to resort attractions such as Seven Springs, Hidden Valley, and Idlewild Park.

The Randall Reserve is dedicated to the preservation of woodlands and wildlife in the valley between Ligonier and Donegal, to the end that current and future generations may continue to experience the natural legacy of this lovely part of the Laurel Highlands. Any wildlife that can survive in this part of the country appears from time to time on our 400+ acres, leaving tracks and signs of their presence. Many varieties of wild flowers, shrubs and trees are to be found here. A network of trails connects all of this together, taking you back to Harris House where you can relax in comfort.

NEW TO THE PROPERTY AS OF 2016/2017, CENTRAL AIR CONDITIONING ON THE PROPERTY! The main lodge now has been updated with central air conditioning, and the annex is cooled by its own smaller unit to maintain comfortable temperatures in the summer heat.

On site the Reserve has fishing and small boating, more than a mile of Four Mile Run (the major creek and trout stream in this area) to explore and enjoy, and miles of trails for hiking and cross country skiing, a game court for family enjoyment, volleyball and badminton, picnics and bonfires. Hay rides (using bales as seats) if trail conditions permit. Furthermore, the Reserve is adjacent to beautiful Donegal Lake, a Pennsylvania public area which offers fishing, kayaking, canoeing and small boating (on a bring-your-own basis).

At times you may want to visit some of the famous places in the Laurel Highlands around us: Idlewilde Park (voted the #1 amusement park for children in the United States) which has Soak Zone and Story Book Forest and many amusements. Seven Springs has skiing, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and many resort activities. Ohiopyle has white-water rafting. Frank Lloyd Wright's 'Fallingwater' is world renowned for its architecture. Flight 93 Memorial will touch your heart. Ligonier, a beautiful little resort town, has Fort Ligonier with its amazing historical reproductions of life in Revolutionary War times.

Bring along a book or two and perhaps a tad of wine, and it is hard to imagine a more restful and satisfying vacation.


Harris House first floor features an open floor plan that includes the living room, dining room and kitchen. There's a wood-burning fireplace as well as floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open onto a large deck overlooking the pond -- thereby allowing you to combine indoor and outdoor living and dining at the same time. (Great for get-togethers!). In addition, our back entrance room contains washer and dryer for your use and a half-bath.

The master bedroom suite has its own wing, a king bed, 1 and 1/2 baths, a private tea-for-two deck, and a small room with WiFi and a single bed.

The 2nd floor has a den with TV and a sofa that turns into a king bed, three bedrooms (king, Queen, two singles), reading/sleeping nook, and two full bathrooms.

The attached annex over the garage is a multi-purpose room with a queen bed and a single bed, a full bath and a narrow deck that overlooks the pond. This annex will be available for use during all times of year and includes its own heating and air conditioning.

Our yard has a large bonfire pit and a small one, a picnic area, a set-up for soccer and badminton, a games court containing shuffleboard, horse shoes, and basketball hoops. There's a dock and rowboat for the pond. The Four Mile Run (a creek), the predominant trout fishing stream in southern Ligonier Valley, delineates the lower yard and supplies shallow water fun for small children plus exploration and fishing for older children and adults.
Air-conditioned accommodations at this vacation home offer fireplaces and DVD players. Rooms open to balconies. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and cookware/dishes/utensils.

Perfext stay yet again
This place is a perfect getaway an hour outside of Pittsburgh. Our family keeps coming back year after year. Corinne and Tom are both delights to work with. Both are extremely accommodating and the house is equipped with everything you could ever need - including two cribs and a high chair for little ones! We can’t wait for our next stay.

Plenty of ... everything!
Our 3-generation family (14 of us in all) really enjoyed our week at Randall Reserve. There was plenty of everything, starting with plenty of parking, and including plenty of peace and quite, plenty of activities, plenty of fish in the pond, plenty of room, plenty of supplies, plenty of space at the long dining table, plenty of kitchen utensils, plenty of refrigerator and freezer space, plenty of hot water, ... I could go on and on. We lacked for nothing! It is an interesting and inviting place, just perfect for our family's reunion. We will treasure plenty of memories!

great location
The location is wonderful! There were people driving around in ATV's that ruined the quiet but otherwise, it was peaceful. We enjoyed watching the turtles and geese in the lake. We had a small reception at the house and there were plenty of supplies like serving trays and to-go containers as well tables and chairs, which was a huge help. The house is a bit older and could use some repairs but overall a nice experience. We'd definitely stay here again.

Perfect Family Reunion
This property was perfect! My family had are bi-annual reunion here. Twelve of us stay here during the week, it has tons of space. There was so much activities to do, tetherball, volleyball, horseshoes, shuffleboard, basketball, cornhole. We had a larger dinner Saturday with extended family, everyone loved it so much, even though we normally change venues between reunions, they're making me book this property for the next one.

Beautiful property
We are repeat guests and stay here for a few days each summer with family friends. So many memories have been made here and we can’t wait to visit again next summer! The rental property is clean and updated. The outdoor property is gorgeous and well maintained. The property manager Tom is friendly and we had quick communications with the other property liaison Corinne on VRBO.
