Помещението
This unit is perfect for travelers who wish to maintain social distancing. It's separate from the main house and has its own keypad entrance for easy self-check-in. With many amenities, including kitchen, laundry facilities, and garage space, you can be entirely self-sufficient throughout your stay. We are committed to rigorous cleaning and sanitation, to keep both you and us safe (if you want to know more about our cleaning procedures, see the last paragraph of this section).

In Pittsburgh and much of Pennsylvania the aggressive shut-down rules for the virus have somewhat eased, but some restrictions that had been lifted are in effect again due to recent increases in coronavirus cases. Many retail businesses are open and travel not related to work is now permitted. At this writing (7/25), Allegheny County is mostly open for business. Restaurants and bars are open for take-out and limited dining in, and sometimes have curtailed hours and menus. Many destinations of interest to visitors are still closed, but some are in the process of limited reopening. This includes museums, entertainment venues, sports venues, pools, and movie theaters. We will keep updating this information as the situation evolves, for the better, we hope. Before you book, we suggest you check directly with businesses or activities of interest to you, because there aren't really any general rules of thumb to fall back on, at least for the time being.

You’ll enjoy quiet and privacy in your own carriage house. Technically it isn't a carriage house; it was built in 1930, after the era of horse-drawn carriages. We call it a carriage house because it evokes the true charm of the place. The living quarters are above our detached 3-car garage, across the backyard from our house. Walk down the driveway past our house and up a short stairway to reach your porch, where the private entrance is located.

The space itself is uniquely charming. The distinctive interior features hardwood floors, two decorative red and yellow brick fireplaces, windows on all sides for great light and ventilation, and unique architectural details.

The bathroom has marble-clad walls and floor tiles, a tub/shower, a vintage oval pedestal sink, and hair dryer. We provide toilet paper, towels, makeup remover towelettes & towels, soap, shampoo, conditioner, and lotion.

The kitchen has fridge, brand new small-sized gas range/oven, microwave, coffee maker, French press, tea kettle, toaster, basic cooking and dining wares, and cooking essentials like salt, pepper, oil, and vinegar. We also provide ground coffee for the coffee maker or French press, filters, creamer, a selection of tea, hot chocolate mix, napkins, paper towels, dish towels, liquid dish soap, and a dish drying rack. There is a Brita filtered water pitcher in the fridge for drinking or coffee/tea. The kitchen’s floor, counters, and cabinets are old but in reasonably good shape.

The two main rooms have an open layout. A small hallway and half-wall separates the bedroom from the living room/dining area.

The queen bed accommodates one or two guests. There is a ceiling fan in the bedroom for year-round cooling and circulation. There is also a window air conditioner (it's located in the living room but cools the entire space). There are wall-mounted nightstands and lamps on both sides of the bed and two wicker drawer units. There is a small closet with a folding door and hangers. In the closet there is also a space heater and box fan to improve comfort during extremely hot or cold weather. There are extra pillows and blankets.

The second bedroom, next to the main bedroom, is a unique, cozy sleeping/reading nook reminiscent of a ship’s cabin, with a built-in platform bed, drawers, and cabinets. It’s about 6 x 7 feet (1.8 x 2.1 meters). There is a doorway separating it from the main bedroom, but NO door. It’s perfect for a small adult or child (custom-sized mattress measures 71 x 32 inches/180 x 81 cm), especially when privacy is not a concern. Our listing says no children under 12, but it's mostly toddlers we're concerned about because of the stairs and a few other safety concerns. Older children are welcome and might enjoy the kid-sized coziness and semi-privacy of the "cabin" and its built-in bed.

The living/dining area has a small dinner table and chairs, a small sofa/loveseat, small coffee table, end table, wall-mounted TV, chandelier, and a table that could also be used as a desk. We provide wifi, broadcast HDTV, and streaming television with Roku channels, Netflix, and Hulu, and you may log on to other services with your own credentials if you wish.

Overall the interior offers about 600 square feet (55 square meters) of space. In the photos, there is a floor plan drawing to give you a better idea of the layout.

We outfitted the space in an eclectic, artful style with interesting objects, original paintings, prints, watercolors, photographs, and posters, as well as a selection of books on art and photography and the Pittsburgh region for you to enjoy.

We recently completed rewiring, repointing, patching and painting, adding storm windows, insulating, and installing a new roof. The kitchen and bathroom sink fixtures are also new. Still, it's a 90-year-old house so expect some "character." For example, the marble in the bathroom has some permanent rust stains and minor damages, and the pedestal sink's refinishing has some chips. Still, they are beautiful features. We think the 1930s style and feel of the space gives it a unique personality. If you are the type of traveller that appreciates this kind of thing, you will not be disappointed.

We live in the main house, far enough away for nearly total privacy for both you and us, and close enough that you can easily find us for any reason.

Previous guests have loved the easy self-check in process using the electronic keypad lock at any time of day or night.

COVID-19 extra cleaning precautions: in addition to the usual cleaning, we also sanitize all hard horizontal surfaces, all light switches, lamp switches, cabinet and drawer pulls, door and closet handles, key pad, thermostat, window hardware, bathroom and kitchen fixtures, stove top, handles, and controls, microwave handles and controls, refrigerator handles, TV and Roku remote controls, fan pull-chains, garage door keypad, outside of all personal care products (shampoo, body wash, conditioner, etc.), handles of coffee pot, toaster, and teapot, and laundry handles and controls. We try to leave a supply of disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizer, but since they are in short supply, you might consider bringing your own.

Достъп на гостите
The carriage house is all yours to enjoy privately, including the porch.

Garage: We often use 2 of the 3 garage spaces. The third is available depending on the size of the vehicle. The space and driveway are very narrow and cannot accommodate larger vehicles, such as vans, trucks, or SUVs, although a recent guest parked their SUV there. If you have a small- to mid-sized car you can almost certainly use the space (free on-street parking is also available). You can try when you arrive, but if you want to check in advance, here are the dimensions:
Driveway width at narrowest point: 79 inches (2 meters)
Garage door opening: 89 inches (2.26 meters)
Width of interior of space: 102 inches (2.59 meters)
Length of interior: 224 inches (5.69 meters)

Laundry Facilities: If you tell us in advance, you may use the washer and dryer located in the utility/boiler room just below the porch. We use these facilities only for laundry between guests.

Garden: In warmer weather, if we are not using our back yard or patio, you can lounge under the pergola just outside the carriage house. It faces the back part of the driveway, which isn't a magnificent sight, but with flowers blooming on the pergola, it's still a calming and tranquil spot. We may use the spot from time to time. We ask that you respect our privacy in the main part of the back yard/garden and the rear section of the driveway.

Други неща за отбелязване
Air conditioning is provided by a window unit. One guest last summer said he thought it was a bit noisy and a recent guest who was conducting remote work meetings in the space said the AC was too loud to use during meetings.

To maintain lower cleaning fees and booking rates, we request that guests wash their dishes and complete a few small tasks before checking out. If these tasks present a hardship for any reason, please discuss with us. There is a list at the end of the House Manual.

Питсбърг, Pennsylvania, САЩ

Our location provides a peaceful, quiet residential setting, combined with a great location at the heart of Pittsburgh’s vibrant East End. This is what makes our neighborhood the ideal location for your stay. We’re at the crossroads of three Pittsburgh neighborhoods, Bloomfield (Pittsburgh's Little Italy), peaceful Friendship, and up-and-coming Garfield. it's adjacent to Lawrenceville (hipster heaven), recently-gentrified East Liberty, Oakland (Pittsburgh's academic and cultural center), upscale Shadyside, Point Breeze, and the vibrant and diverse Squirrel Hill. We’re surrounded by universities, hospitals, museums, galleries, shops, cafes, restaurants, and entertainment venues. We’re also convenient to downtown Pittsburgh, including the convention center, sports venues, museums, and cultural destinations. The neighborhood is racially and socioeconomically diverse, on a slightly upward trend in terms of house sale prices and property values. The residences here mostly date from the Victorian to the pre-WWII era and are a mix of single-family homes, duplexes, and small apartment units. The neighborhood's diverse residents include professionals, academicians, students, artists, creatives, tech workers, and hospital workers.

I've been running the Airbnb since December 2018. Most of my professional life has been in the art museum field. I worked in the art museum here in Pittsburgh for almost 27 years. While in graduate school for art conservation, I lived in Florence, Italy for 3 years. I enjoy photography, trampoline, diving, travel, tai chi, volunteering, writing, meditation, attending cultural events, and being a house-husband/dad. I'm soft-spoken and somewhat introverted, and have a good sense of humor. With guests I'm respectful and responsible, friendly and welcoming but not too outgoing or chatty. My wife, who helps run the Airbnb, is a fundraiser for the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, a non-profit that runs Fallingwater, the iconic Frank Lloyd Wright house not far from Pittsburgh. My daughter is a musical theater major in college. When she is between semesters and home with us, she helps with the Airbnb. All of us are tolerant, open-minded, and value the diversity and energy of city living.

По време на престоя ви
We are friendly, courteous, and accommodating. We want you to be happy with your stay. We're also quiet and reserved. We'd like to meet and welcome you, and after that we'll provide as much or as little guidance as you want regarding your stay. If something is missing or unsatisfactory we expect you to tell us right away, and you can expect us to make every effort to make things right. We're also happy to offer dining and sightseeing tips, directions, and local wisdom*. We generally won't initiate social interaction with our guests except as needed. We typically communicate with guests using Airbnb's messaging platform, but you'll have our phone number in case you need to reach us urgently. If you prefer to keep to yourselves, we're fine with that, as long as you follow the house rules and are considerate with us should our paths cross. Many guests do take advantage of the privacy and choose to have little or no interaction with us.

* On our listing, there is a guide we put together that includes recommendations for restaurants, sightseeing, etc. There is also a printed version of the guide in the apartment. We also have a variety menus, brochures, etc. available in the apartment.

We often use the garage spaces beneath the apartment so you may see us coming and going or hear the garage and car doors opening and closing, though hardly ever at very late or very early hours. In gardening season expect to cross paths with Pam, whose labor of love keeps the garden vibrant and beautiful.
