Description
The Space

The guest room is a beautifully restored, upstairs bedroom with a full size, down bed and a unique diamond-shaped window. It stays naturally cool in the Summer and warm in the Winter. Because of the sloped ceilings, it has no closet, but a large dresser instead. Formal clothes or dresses can be easily hung downstairs in the laundry room.

Guest Access

You are welcome to make the entire cottage and its gardens you own home for as long as you stay. You can use any room as a work-from-home office, so long as you bring it back into your room by evening. There is a piano available for musicians and plenty of workshop space available for storage or construction/art projects. Feel free to invite respectful friends for a meal or party, there is a firepit in the backyard and plenty of kitchenware / seating for entertaining. If you enjoy gardening, there is always plenty to do!

Interaction with Guests

I will typically be home when you arrive to help acquaint you with the city. If time permits, I'll happily to take you on a short tour of the city, to some points of interest and grocery. My company, City of Play, often organizes social events around Pittsburgh, so you'll be more than welcome to come along to a game or festival if you're interested.

The Neighborhood

Fineview is a small, hilltop neighborhood in Pittsburgh's Northside. We are a ten minute walk from the oldest and most charming part of the city, the Mexican War Streets. Here in the Northside, you can walk to PNC Park (Pirates), Heinz Field (Steelers), the Mattress Factory Museum, The Andy Warhol Museum, The Children's Museum, the National Aviary. There is an overlook across the street from the cottage with beautiful sunset views of the city. There is also a playground just up the street with a tennis court and pavillion.

Getting Around

The Fineview bus stops one block from the cottage every 30 minutes. It will take you downtown, where you can catch nearly any other bus in the city. There is also plenty of available street-side parking if you choose to rent a car. I have one bicycle I'm happy to loan, just prepare yourself for Pittsburgh's hills! The city bike share program, Healthy Ride, also has a depot within a 10 minute walk. We are a 5 minute drive from downtown, and a 20 minute drive from the east end.

Place's rules
The only rules are to clean whatever mess you make and to practice generosity. If you plan on entertaining guests, just let me know, and be respectful of our neighbors. Help yourself to any food in the house for breakfast, but please plan on buying your own groceries for other meals unless we plan something together. Please don't smoke cigarettes, cigars, or anything else inside the house, but feel free to light up in the garden. If you are having a campfire in the backyard, make sure you have a story to share. and a bucket of water.

About Gregory
Visit Profile
Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
