My wife and I wanted to visit Douthat State Park and needed a place to stay that would allow us to bring our dog.The Firmstone was perfect , Barbara greeted us at the door and made us feel right at home. We introduced our dogs to each other without any trouble at all. Her dogs are very sweet ,loving,and well behaved . They made Apollo feel welcome for the entire stay. Barbara is a wonderful, generous host with alot of great stories. The house is really cool with alot of history and neat furnishings. Barbara is restoring the home and doing a great job with it. The front porch is amazing with a huge gazebo and a porch swing to relax in.We very much enjoyed everything about our stay and plan on visiting Barbara, China and Snoopa (her dogs) again. If you are planning a trip to the area we would highly recommend paying them a visit. Thanks again for a great weekend in the beautiful Allegheny mountains . Your new friends Scott, Heather, & Apollo.
