“Kick off your shoes--stay awhile”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

We stayed at this B&B to close out our vacation in Pennsylvania-a great choice if I may be allowed to pat myself on the back. Lets face it...when you're in the middle of Pittsburgh and you get to take photos of deer from the front porch--something special is presenting itself. Jim is a very friendly host who is very knowledgeable regarding Pittsburgh and is happy to direct you to important sights, activities and restaurants--he also gives great directions to steer you around road construction projects that render smart phone guidance systems useless. This is an old farm house that sets on a pretty steep and forested bluff above the streets below. Our room (standard king #3) was spacious, clean and very comfortable--Jim had even put bathrobes in our room. I made use of the hot-tub both nights to address stressed out and over-"toured" muscles. The grounds provided a secluded and verdant backdrop to our stay. I did feel as if I were "home"--that is unusual for me as I normally don't relax that readily when I'm so far away from my real "home". We had wonderful chats with Jim every morning before we went out to explore the surprisingly beautiful city of Pittsburgh. We hope to go back, some day.

What a find! We stayed at the Arbors for one night. I would have stayed for more, but we were on our way to a wedding in Cincinnati the next day. We arrived late, and Jim had the perfect suggestion for a dinner spot nearby. After our delicious Thai food, we returned to the inn and relaxed in the hot tub. Yes, there is a hot tub. So nice!

The next morning, Jim had fresh (delicious) coffee brewing and an entire breakfast spread ready for us. The whole house is filled with charm. Our room was very clean, and everything smells good! I would DEFINITELY return if I found myself in Pittsburgh again!

The rooms were spacious and clean, with great attention paid to those small details that make one's stay extra comfortable. The grounds were lush with plants and other foliage, giving the feeling of privacy, even in a residential neighborhood. There is an enclosed porch and an outdoor patio off the dining area, where one can eat or just sit and relax and enjoy the view of the garden.

We found Jim, the B&B manager to be both accommodating and friendly. He gladly offers advice on what is current in entertainment, where to go, how to get there and restaurants for a variety of tastes.

We look forward to staying at this B&B again on our next trip to Pittsburg.

My husband and I stayed at the Arbors for 3 nights, and were very pleased. Jim was a great host, always up, and ready to give us directions on how to get to various places. During that time we were able to see visit Fallingwater, Kentuck Nob, the Frick, the Warhol museum, and yummy restaurants. I would definitely recommend staying there.

Room Tip: Great time of year to open all the windows

My husband & i were in town for a show at Consol Energy Center. Perfect location (on the "north shore" not too hard to find your way downtown from here). Kind of hard to find the B&B from the directions on the website, so if you have an up-to-date GPS that should work just fine.
The owners live just a couple of blocks from the place, so if you arrive and no one is there to check you in they'll leave you their cell phone number to call (which we had to do) and didn't have to wait more than about 5 minutes for Craig to arrive.

Jim, their host / manager, is just absolutely wonderful and gave great tips on where to go, where to eat, where we'd need reservations for, and the best way to get wherever we were going.
He also made our stay very fun and enjoyable, our first morning we spent hours at the kitchen table with the other guests sitting around talking and laughing and were surprised at how much time had passed.

The house is beautiful, the guest room we stayed in was inviting with everything we needed. Our room (Sunset) had french doors that opened up to let in fresh air, and there are also 2 windows which both open up (all are screened). I don't think there was any way to control the heat / air in your room. There's a small private bath with shower stall, the sink is located in the room. Didn't see a hair dryer anywhere, but i usually bring my own just in case when we travel. I bet if you forgot yours, Jim would make sure you had one. There are toiletries available if you need them. Small in-room fridge and coffee maker too. Also provided were robes and we had plenty of towels available. The bed was verrrry firm but not terribly uncomfortable (everyone has their liking). Also enjoyed that there's not a lot of street noise to deal with, nice and quiet location.

There's a hot tub could comfortably fit 4 and not be crowded, located downstairs in a 4-seasons room, there are towels and plastic wine glasses available.

Breakfast is simple - fresh baked muffins, pastries from a local bakery, English muffins, yogurt, fresh fruit, you can also make oatmeal and i think there was cold cereal available too. Plenty of coffee and tea.

Surprisingly, we saw a wild turkey strolling up the driveway towards the street on our last morning there, which seems strange to see in such an "urban" location...
Speaking of location, we enjoyed Pittsburgh's north shore area, there's plenty of great restaurants and bars all within about a 10 minute drive. We enjoyed the area, had lots of fun and enjoyed chatting with the locals when we were out and about, everyone we talked to was very friendly and seemed pretty happy. Looking forward to our next visit.

We went to: Max's Allegheny Tavern, Nicky's Thai Kitchen, Modern Cafe, The Warhol Museum, and Rivers Casino during our stay, and all were within minutes of the B&B.

Three of us, each coming from a different state, met up at the Arbors B-n-B in anticipation of a concert to be given by British Tenor Alfie Boe. Unfortunately, Mother Nature had other plans. Hurricane Sandy caused the concert to be canceled and left Pittsburgh damp and chilly. Our suite at The Arbors Bed and Breakfast was warm and comfortable, and the incredible hospitality of our host, Jim, along with the amazing array of home baked goodies warmed our hearts and spirits. Jim was very helpful in assisting us with our unplanned needs (getting to the hospital because of a kidney stone, extending our stay, making room for an extra friend when her roommate's flight was canceled due to the weather). He was absolutely delightful. The fall setting was beautiful, the home was full of history and character, and everything was bright and clean. The location was very central to the places we needed to go. I know that we will stay there again if our travels (and Alfie Boe) ever bring us back to Pittsburgh.

Thank you, Jim, for a wonderful stay!

My husband and I stayed at the Arbors recently when we went to Pittsburgh to visit our son in college. It was also our 26th wedding anniversary. We very much enjoyed the stay. The rooms were welcoming, and the bathroom was sparkling clean. We liked the old-fashioned rooms downstairs. The location was in a tucked away spot. There was plenty of breakfast and Jim the manager was helpful, friendly, and full of Pittsburgh information. We would recommend this B&B highly.

Room Tip: Bring a swimsuit, they have a hot tub
