The Mansion at Maple Heights is a lovely old residence and it has been nicely renovated/restored. However if you are anticipating a beautifully furnished home with wall hangings and carpets and antiques and chairs etc you will be disappointed. None of the public spaces with the exception of the library are furnished or decorated--it looks like a house prior to someone moving in. The breakfast/dining room area does have a couple tables with chair but nothing else you could call decoration. I imagine they move stuff in when they host a wedding but for a bed and breakfast esp one advertised as upper end it is definitely lacking in ambiance.
The bed room we were in, no 4, shared a bathroom. There were two nice queen beds, and a couple floor lamps, a flat screen tv, a dresser. Again no decorations--wall hangings, mirrors, chairs, etc. Heating/ac was controlled from the hall way for all the rooms on that wing--our room was continually too cold; plus you couldn't even adjust the heating cooling vent as there were no adjustment device on the vent outlet.
The setting was very attractive. Its on a steep hill above a major street. Its a three or four block walk to Shadyside. The first part of the walk would be down the hill along a street with no sidewalk. Once past there the walking is pleasant.
The service was good. They were attentive to our requests and readily available. The breakfast we had was good; there were both cold and hot breakfast choices. There was some street noise from our room but otherwise it was quiet; you wouldn't have known there was a full house when we were there.
