    Blue Knob Home

    5/5 Stayed Aug 16, 2021
    Submitted Aug 22, 2021

    It was a wonderful stay! The property is lovely and even though it rained and was foggy we enjoyed the local pool and walks around the community. The GPS took us to the wrong place so the written directions were very helpful. Magical mountain drive! The kitchen had everything we needed, except a can opener, and was bigger than I had thought. The house is built well for skiing and has lots of balconies and funny halls. There were games, tvs and lots of beds and space for our 12 person group. I was surprised by the worn and slightly dirty towels and linens, dust and cobwebs, beds that we needed to make ourselves, and walls that needed some repair. We felt comfortable enough and enjoyed our stay very much!

    We flew in from TN for just a quick weekend getaway to meet up with our PA family to celebrate a loved one. We enjoyed everything about this cabin, all 8 of were so comfortable there and the teens had an absolute blast exploring Blue Knob and hanging in the hot tub with their cousins. We even got to enjoy some snow in May :) So much better than getting 2 hotel rooms and being bored!! We’d loved to come back to this place again next year.

    We arrived and everything was in working order and just as the description said. The area is beautiful and the house was fully stocked with linens, towels, housewares and such. The fire ring and hot tub were perfect and there was even wood for us to use. The neighbors were accommodating and friendly. We all had a blast! The clean up was simple and check out was a breeze!! The owner was super helpful and gave his cell if we had any issues or questions. Definitely a great experience!!

    Enormous Mountain Chalet

    This mountain chalet is HUGE. We had seven people (three teenagers, four adults) and there was plenty of space to spread out or to hang out together and play games. The hot tub was delightful. The kitchen was fully stocked with useful items. We had a great time and would definitely come back! One warning: The road up to the house is windy and narrow (the house is on a mountain, so this isn't surprising). Be careful on snowy days! If you are going to the top of the mountain to ski, this should be expected!

    We had an great time. The ski lift was across the street . There wasn’t any snow .But it would be wonderful during snow season. The main level is perfect for individuals who have a difficult time with stairs. The fire pit and hot tub we on the bottom level. Our kids and grandchildren had fun. We played games, took walks and just enjoyed each other’s company. We grill on the deck. Several tables so you could be in or outside. The home is not newest on the block. It served our needs. The owner replied fast and seemed to want our stay to be an enjoyable one. Thankyou!!!

    40th Birthday Ski Weekend!

    5/5 Stayed Feb 26, 2021
    Submitted Mar 1, 2021

    In the words of my 3.5 year old nephew upon entering the front door of the chalet, his eyes were wide as he exclaimed, THIS HOUSE IS AMAZING! It was indeed amazing. I rented the chalet for my older sister's 40th birthday. We have skied Blue Knob since we were 5 years old and have always wanted to rent a chalet and be able to ski at our just took us 35/40 years to make it happen! The Cedar Haus was perfectly equipped for our weekend getaway. Very spacious - every guest was able to socialize, yet find their own little corner for privacy if needed. Amenities were excellent - most especially the hot tub after a long day of skiing. We were taken aback by the ski room that was a perfect place for us to disrobe all of our gear, hang up our coats/ski pants and house our equipment out of the way. The chalet seems harder to get to on a map than it actually is in real life. We had absolutely no trouble getting there. Alan provides great instructions on how to get there. The road was not snow covered the weekend we were there, but I was still happy to have 4-wheel drive due to it raining/sleeting over the weekend. Plus, the extra gravel they put down from the snow plows can make the road slick even when it is bare. All of our vehicles were 4-wheel drive and no one had any problems; however, I would not envy anyone that has to travel that road after a big snowfall! The chalet felt very cozy and homey. The decor exemplified the surrounding environment of the ski resort and mountainous setting - which we absolutely adored! A little bit further of a walk to the slopes than I had originally thought but still not bad. You can see the mid-station lift from the house. Couches and furniture were comfortable. Beds were okay as well. This house can hold a lot of people - the bunk room was very cool even though we didn't have that many people staying to utilize it. We occupied the three main bedrooms and there was plenty of pillows/bedding for us and many many more guests. Alan is a great communicator as well. He is thorough and always got back to me in a reasonable timeframe. Would definitely rent the Cedar Haus again! Thank you for letting us stay in this wonderful home! -Jen, Tracey, Luc, Peg, Dave and little Tristan

    Submitted Jan 22, 2021

    We booked this at the very last minute and we were hoping for the best. Alan's chalet far exceeded our expectations. The layout is exceptional and can accommodate large groups with ease. It's much bigger than it looks from the outside, with multiple places to hang out and chill. Even though we only had 3 of us, we each found our own nook in the house to call our own. The location is a little hard to find at first (using Waze), but we were delighted to find that it's a stone's throw to the slopes and a short drive to the main lodge. The hot tub is a nice bonus, and we enjoyed it after a hard day skiing. I highly recommend visiting.

    We had a great 4-night stay at the Cedar Haus. Communication with the owner was excellent leading up to the trip. The house is as described, with great common spaces and a nice view of the mountain. The kitchen was very well stocked, with every pot, pan, and utensil you could need to cook every meal. You can ski in/out only a block away from the house or drive to Blue Knob Resort in 5 minutes. The hot tub was wonderful after a long day of skiing.

    I'll get the less-nice aspects out of the way first: The sofas in the living room are worn out. The springs on the center cushion on the one next to the door are completely shot, such that one sinks practically to the floor. The finish is worn off the back cushions of both sofas. They really should be replaced. The dishwasher was full, fortunately with clean dishes, but the cleaning service should have unloaded it. There were burned out light bulbs in the main floor bedroom's ceiling light. A little more attention to details like these two items - the only ones that come to mind right now - would have been appreciated. Also, in the emailed check in instructions, it would be helpful if a better identification of the house is given. I discovered that the Waze GPS doesn't work at this remote location, even though I put in the address from the contract into Waze. Cell coverage for me was a bit hit-or-miss, as well. I had a picture of the house on VRBO, but I had to search to find which one it was. Simply saying in the check-in message which house it is, and some instruction about the keyless entry (which didn't work in the same way as another VRBO house I had just come from) would have been helpful, as reading how it works in the instruction binder is rather after-the-fact. That said, the location is beautiful. The house is about halfway up the mountain's summit, and very quiet (at least in mid-October). It's about 15 minutes down the hill to the valley, and 45 minutes total to Altoona & Hollidaysburg to the north and Bedford to the south. Johnstown is also about 45 minutes by going the opposite direction over the summit and down the other side via Portage. All in all, to cover much of the interesting area sights, the house is ideally located. Being alone, I only used a small portion of the house, which is huge. Everything (except the sofas) was just fine for my needs, and I enjoyed sitting on the deck looking at the gorgeous view through the fall color. And after a full day of sightseeing, the best way to cap off the day was an evening soak in the hot tub! It was quite blissful for two hours in the cool mid-40s mountain air. Absolutely loved that! All in all, I enjoyed my stay. Just a few tweaks at it would have been perfect. Thank you, Alan!

    I want there it was my family to get away due to the coronavirus we really don't have a lot of options or places we could go to so I decided to give this a try for the first time. Also experience was really great the house was amazing even parent her send the view is amazing I was just saying there are a few things in the house are outdated and need fixing like the Ping pong table and as well as some of the walls have a few holes in them. The fridge in the basement was in the cleaners but it was OK for us I wasn't really expecting any more. It was definitely worth what we paid for and I am super excited to actually go back and visit again. The check in process was really easy we went up the hill put in the code and instantly got access to the house all the rooms were nice and clean the laundry room was guy didn't have a lot of extra sheets and towels and everything that you can eat in the kitchen we use the grill and it was amazing the food taste so good it was cleaned and just the outdoor patios the Jacuzzi everything was really nice and it was definitely worth the time.

    We had a lot of fun, but the place was a bit messy. I cleaned out the fridge and freezer when we got there and wiped down the countertops along with all the light switches. It is a beautiful place, it just needs updated. The couch needs replaced from wear and tear, and the ping pong table is old and needs to have paddles that are not worn out. The hot tub was our favorite part, but the old hot tub either needs to be moved or the renters need to be informed that it is there. Overall we did have a good time, but it needs updated and cleaned better, or the price should be lower.

    We loved our stay at The Cedar Haus! The location is gorgeous, especially in fall. The neighborhood is very quiet & peaceful. The view overlooking the mountains is breathtaking. The house is very nice and great at accommodating large groups. We appreciated the 2 separate areas with couches and tv since we had a large group and couldn't all agree on one activity. The owner, Alan, is very nice and provided ample information. We very much appreciated the written out driving directions he provided us since the GPS didn't have reception once we got closer to the house. We will definitely consider staying here again!

    The homeowner was very nice to work with, accomodating our family for an early check-in and handling some issues during our stay. The house has a nice layout for family gatherings (in our case, a family wedding in Roaring Spring) but lacked in cleanliness and overall needs some TLC. Also, please be aware that the drive there is extremely twisty/turny. A few in our group get car sick easily and it was a rough ride up the mountain.
