    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.THE HOUSE: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.

    5/5 Excellent

    This place has it all!
    We stay here every year for our fantasy football draft and it never disappoints! The amenities are second to none, providing so many activities and fun for all. They recently did some remodeling and it looks amazing. They really continue to invest in the property and that's another reason that we keep coming back. From the basketball court, to the lake, to campfires, to the giant teepee, we never run out of things to do! The property is amazing and the house is immaculate. Benjamin was easy to work with and always answers questions quickly if we have them. Tom is also a gracious host, and really does a spectacular job of keeping the property in tip top shape! I have nothing but good things to say about this property and the people who run it. See you next year!

    5/5 Excellent

    Quarantine paradise
    We loved the private setting! Lake was beautiful & enjoyed fishing all day and night. Fed the horses daily apples and carrots. Large kitchen was great for big dinners. Loved our stay. Highly recommend !!

    5/5 Excellent

    Gorgeous pond-side getaway
    We loved our stay here. Extremely kid friendly, dog friendly, perfect place for a quiet getaway for a sizable group but with lots of activities in and around the house. Tom the concierge who lives a short distance away was very kind and accommodating. There was an inaccuracy in the listing (now corrected) that the owner handled via a small refund, which was an appropriate and professional way to handle the situation. We would highly recommend this property and it’s management to anyone.

    5/5 Excellent

    A perfect place for kids and adults
    We were a group of 3 families, all with kids under 5. The house had more than enough space for us, and tons of things to keep everyone entertained. The boats, teepee, and horses were a hit! We are already talking about coming back again.

    5/5 Excellent

    Absolutely perfect
    We had the best time during our stay with our group of 11. This was our second time returning to the property and the first time bringing our 6 month old daughter. The house has two cribs that can be setup. The teepee was an awesome addition this year and would be perfect for enjoying a fire during cold months! Can’t wait to for our nest visit.
