Clean, roomy accomodations close to all the fun things in Pittsburgh!

  • 5 of 5

This house was extremely clean and very well supplied. The owners were considerate and helpful and checked in with us by email after we got there to make sure everything was O.K. The house is very close to the Children's Hospital and convenient to all the sites that we went to see. We visited the Carnegie Art & Science Museums, the Phipps Conservatory, the Duquesne Incline, Point State Park and the Strip District. It took us no more than 10 minutes to get to any of them. Parking is on the street but was not a problem. We were there Thursday through Sunday and never had a problem parking very close to the house. We enjoyed having the space to relax in after a day on the town and being able to cook some of our own meals. Definitely better than a hotel! We would recommend Barb's Corner Kitchen at 4711 Butler Street (we walked there) for an excellent, cheap breakfast with great service!

Great property and location

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have hoped for anything better for my stay in Pittsburgh. The owners were very responsive to questions before and during my stay; the house is very comfortable and safe; the neighborhood is fun and has much to offer. The Little Rowhouse will be my first choice for future visits to the city.

We loved staying at this row house in Lawrenceville! It is very comfortable, has a well equipped kitchen, a lovely back yard and a great location convenient to Butler St, Penn Ave, and Children's hospital. The owners were extremely helpful and responsive!

Very Clean, good location

  • 4 of 5

The row houwe was very clean with nice amenities. The area is being revitalized and is worth and afternoon or afternoon visiting or hanging out. Relatively close proximity to downtown and other areas of interest. Would recommend if you don't mind steep steps going upstairs. Owners were very repsonsive after we left some stuff in the house.

Wonderful Vacation Experience

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this house for 8 days. It was my husband, myself, and our 2 children (3 and 1). This house does have steep steps but there is a gate at the house to block kids from going up and we had no issues with them on the steps. The beds were all comfortable! Even the pull out couch was not to bad which we used a couple nights because our 3 year old wanted to sleep on it. The house was clean, roomie and the bathroom was amazing. Huge shower and the jacuzzi tub was fantastic for the kids and myself. We loved this house because it was close to everything in the city. The longest travel time to something we went to was 18 minutes. It is street parking but you get a permit and we never had any issues getting a spot right in front of the house. We will be staying here again for sure we are so pleased with the little row house in the burgh. There is no cable but we brought dvds and we also brought our laptop and an HDMI cable and steamed netflix and xfinifty through the laptop. If you need a place to stay I would HIGHLY recommend this. On top of everything the neighborhood is wonderful with TONS of restaurants. The only suggestion I would make to the homeowners would be to put a curtain up on the back door (there is already a rod just no curtain).

This is a lovely rowhouse. All the furniture is good quality, and it was obviously updated in the not too recent past. Nothing felt old or worn out, and it was very clean. The amount of things stocked in the kitchen and bathroom felt more than enough, we had no trouble cooking or anything like that. There were three adult friends staying here, and so we would have appreciated a second toilet on the first floor, but we made do. The bed I slept on was very comfortable. I enjoyed using the super deep spa tub, it was the best! It does take so much water though, that it basically uses the entire hot water heater. The tub was only used in the evenings though, so morning showers weren't affected, but you definitely wouldn't be able to do two hot baths with enough water to run the jets in one night. Not really a big downside unless you're in a very similar situation with several adult women excited to relax away from their kids. All of the bedrooms are upstairs, and the stairs are VERY steep, so staying here with young kids might be tricky.

You can walk to the area's sort of main street, where we did some shopping. There's a glass blower shop which was very cool, and a very unique gift shop where we all bought several things. There are several restaurants, though we mostly cooked. We did go to the Industry Public House for lunch, and I enjoyed my fish and chips. The waitstaff was very friendly and helpful. Unless you're there for the children's hospital though, most other things you might want to do in the area are driving distance, and I didn't notice much in the way of public transportation. So the convenience of the location may vary a lot depending on your desires. We were quite happy with it because it was quiet. Parking was easy with the permits the host provided.

The hosts themselves seemed very nice. We never met them in person, but they answered all of my questions whenever I had them, and even mailed me the handmade belt I'd left in the closet.

If you're not worried about being in the center of Pittsburgh, this place is perfect. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable vacation, and I'd definitely do it again.

The house is located in Lawrenceville within the city of Pittsburgh. The house is next door to Children's Hospital on the bus line with easy access to Downtown, Oakland, and Shadyside. The house is ideal for visiting trendy shops and restaurants in Lawrenceville and the Strip District (market area).
