Property Reviews 
Schaefer House Autumn
A guest from Allison Park, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in October, 2018
Firstly, thank you for letting us use your house for rental. This is the fourth time we rented the Schaefer House.We appreciate the updated furniture, spacious living area and overall feel of the place. It also offers nice sleeping arrangements, bathroom and a newer kitchen. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the plates, pots and other items needed for food prep. The television was new as were the sofas. It's also nice being surrounded by an orchard of fruit trees. There were a few downfalls to staying out in a wooded area....mainly the mice. We are aware it is a country type setting surrounded by a farm and woods. Although we saw a few mice before in the kitchen on previous stays, we tried not to let them bother us. Now however we witnessed them in the kitchen, living room, hallway and bathroom. At night you hear them scurry up and down the upstairs hallway and on the kitchen countertops looking for food. The biggest shock was when we were sitting on the living room sofas and they came out of the fireplace and helped themselves to the food we had. The weren't afraid and jumped in our food bowls we had placed on the floor. We took a few pictures and videos if you'd be interested in seeing. We would in the future, like to stay at the Schaefer House again but the thought of the mouse infestation has made us think twice. Everyone has had a mouse or two in their garage or basement but this was clearly much more. I hesitate to do a review on a public website but we'd really like to see the problem resolved before someone else experiences the same thing. I don't like leaving negative reviews especially if the issue can be fixed. We would really appreciate a response to this letter. That way we know we were acknowledged and the issue was addressed.Thanks for you time. Lisa & Natalie

Rustic cottage
A guest from Spotsylvania, VA recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in August, 2018
Beautiful yard, nice large kitchen and living room spaces, adequately furnished. Nice grill and fire pit, large TV. Three bedrooms but mattresses are very firm. Quite clean except for the fresh mouse poop in the cabinets and kitchen counters. Wifi mostly useless. Smoke alarm that was left on upstairs dresser keep beeping despite removing battery. We left it outside. We called the reservations number but no action was taken. We left it inside when we checked out.

Overall good accommodations
A guest from East Liverpool, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in July, 2018
We were disappointed upon arrival as there was no soda bed as advertised on couple travel sites. I called twice the first day to inquire and was told someone would call me back but never did. On day 2 I got great help from NicKY in the office who had some extra linens sent out so we could turn the couch in a sleeping surface at night. The only complaint there us that whoever deliversed the linens did not lock the door on the way out.our stay was uneventful and pleasant after that until we woke the last morning to find something had chewed through our bag ofor bagels.

All about the bottom line
A guest from Grand Haven, MI does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 2 days in June, 2018
The property is obviously run by an organization that is all about turning a profit. There were none of the usual little niceties like spices or condiments, beds & bedrooms were very small, broken plastic deck chairs, large signs posted letting you know about how you would be charged extras, etc. Definitely not what we anticipated.

Great weekend away!
Jen L. from Lemont Furnace, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in June, 2018
I actually won a weekend stay at the Shaffer Cabin. I invited all my fellow coworkers (we're all vet techs) to come up and enjoy it with me. We did some hiking in the park and some fishing at the falls and along Meadow Run. But mostly we just hung out and enjoyed the relaxation! The cabin was perfect. Very clean and inviting. My favorite part was the porch and the swing! I'll definitely recommend OVR to anyone who asks for a place to stay in the mountains!!

Quaint and Cozy
A guest from Scottdale, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in November, 2017
We had a great experience - except when we checked in. The door was completely wide open, which was worrisome for 3 ladies checking in at 10pm in a pretty remote location for many reasons- was someone in the house? was an animal in the house? After we checked the house and after about an hour of the heat regulating itself (the downstairs was freezing and the heat from the upstairs was BLASTING trying to makeup the difference) all was well. The house is in a beautiful location (NOTE: the Orendorff house is on the same property, pretty close to this house - which can certainly be a benefit especially if you have a large group and want to rent both houses! But if you're just renting one, just know that there might be someone staying on the same property - far enough away that

Stayed for 2 days in July, 2017
This was out third time staying at the Schaefer House and we've always had a pleasant stay. It has an updated feel to it and makes for a very comfortable to stay. The only major complaint is the checkout time at 10:00am is a little early when you have to pack the car for the trip and clean up. A few chairs and a table on the front deck would make it nice to sit and look at the scenery and enjoy a meal, too.

Great Holiday!!
A guest from Mullica Hill, NJ recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in November, 2016
We rented the Shaefer house for Thanksgiving. It was my granddaughters first Thanksgiving so it was a wonderful location to enjoy the family without normal life getting in the way. We have rented cabins before for Christmas and Thanksgiving and have been very disappointed with the cooking. However, the Shaefer house is very well equipped. A bit disappointed we could not use the fireplace. We got some nice hikes in with it being so close to Ohiopyle.

just one thing
Douglas R. from Allentown, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in August, 2016
All in all the stay was great. The only small gripe I have is that I put a call into OVR,(they answered promptly and told me somone would get back to me), about the shower not working. It turned out it was just my ignorance of not realizing how it functioned, but no one ever responded to the call, which made me wonder if the problem was more serious ... other than that the place was great for our family vacation.

Hi Doug!

Thank you for your review and feedback! I am so glad that you found Schaefer House to be a great place for your family vacation, and I hope that you will come back and enjoy any of our 35+ homes in the Laurel Highlands! I apologize to hear that the phone service was spotty, oftentimes the mountain area can be a bit of a challenge to get service in some areas. When we attempted to call back, the phone calls weren't able to go through. I am so glad that you didn't have any issues getting the shower to work. We have since placed instructions at the home!

Thank you David and come back and see us soon!

A guest from London, London does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 2 days in August, 2016
The house was clean if sparsely equipped in the kitchen. The photo was totally misleading - there is another house right next door. Vehicles tend to push it up the hill so it can be noisy. It is very well placed for Falling Water and the natural water slides.

Hi Tom!

Thank you so much for your review and feedback of Schaefer House, one of our most popular homes! I am glad you found the home to be clean and well placed for visiting Fallingwater and the Ohiopyle State Park natural waterslides. Schafer House is placed next to Orndorff Cabin, and it overlooks a large field and is located close to the road that leads to Ohiopyle State Park. That is often one of its greatest selling points, so I am regretful to hear that you weren't satisfied with that aspect. I hope that you come back and stay with us again at one of our 35+ vacation rental homes!

Disappointing...
Christopher G. from Chester, VA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in May, 2016
Arrived @ 4:00. Code sent did not work for lockbox. Three calls over 45 minutes FINALLY yielded the CORRECT code. Agreement made with Customer Service for complimentary drinks to compensate for nearly hour waiting in cold and wet. Not honored by manager at Stone House restaurant following night. Trifling particularly that they can charge you $25/hr for early in or late out. Porch furniture not cleaned of birdcrap and some pieces unsafe to use. Maintenance in the house poor. All else adequate, but initial impressions spoiled this review.

In general, the cabin met our needs very well. Several items were missing: a large pot for pasta; dishwashing liquid and implements, including paper towels; and trash bags. Given that we were responsible for dish cleaning and trash removal, the supplies should have been there or identified as items we needed to bring.

The kitchen has almost everything you need and they do have WIFI. I would suggest this cabin for future stays.Tips for future stays: Bring your own chairs for fire pit and your own toilet paper. Also, there is a cabin right next to this one that is not displayed in the pictures. They share the driveway in the middle.

Charming Cottage
David S. from Vandergrift, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2015
We had a great stay in Ohiopyle. The house was very nice and clean when we arrived. The location was great-just a short drive to most of the local attractions. It is located very near Route 381, but traffic noise wasn't an issue. There is a cabin also for rent which is very near the house. This again wasn't an issue for us, as it was empty for a few days until some friendly people moved in. But it is closer than it appears in any photo. The only service we needed after checking in was when we lost power due to a storm. OVR sent someone almost immediately to make sure it wasn't anything serious. The only small issue we had was that there is no working shower in the bathroom. Although pictures show a shower head and curtain, we couldn't figure out how to make it work. We enjoyed the natural water slides, hiking to the beautiful Cucumber Falls, Fort Necessity, Fallingwater and the overall quaintness of the town. Paddler's Pizza and Ohiopyle Bakery were our favorite local restaurants. We would recommend this house to others.

This place is charming from the outside and about 5 minutes to the park. It's in a beautiful area and there are peach and apple trees and also raspberry bushes. We did find a few areas for improvement: it is a little musty and dark on the inside; one light wasn't working on the outside; and the place is very close to the road. It also needed a better deep cleaning as there was dust.

Mark H. from Cleveland, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in May, 2015
Me and 5 of my buddies rented this house out for the weekend while we white water rafted in Ohiopyle. While it only has one bathroom, it fit us all comfortably as we played cards, watched the NBA playoffs, lounged on the large front porch, etc. (The internet was even good enough to play online video games with no lag.. couldn't believe it.) The yard around it is huge--we played ultimate frisbee and threw a football around with ease. The place was clean, air conditioning worked, the beds were nice and comfy, the was kitchen fully supplied, and the breakfast nook is bigger than it looks in the picture. The only thing that caused some surprise is how close their 2nd house is to this Shaefer unit. It's literally a pixel outside the frame of all of their website pictures. Don't let that discourage you, though, this place is great. Just wanted to warn you ahead of time.

The location of the cabin was perfect. Five minutes from downtown Ohiopyle's natural water slides and 10 minutes to Nemacolin's Outdoor Adventure Park. 20 minutes to Laurel Caverns. This is a literal cabin with exposed wood inside and out. There was an issue with wasps but that was taken care of by the management company. At the end of the day I would stay here or at the neighboring Schaefer House any time.

Nice house on 65 acres with a great view, but it had another house right next door and it was located on the road. Was clean and neat but no coffee table in the living room and couldn't use the beautiful fireplace.

Stayed for 2 days in October, 2014
Couldn't be more pleased. The house was just as advertised and was extremely clean on arrival. A group of us went down for the weekend and had a wonderful time. Absolutely no surprised. So long as you follow the easy guidelines they provide you won't have any issues. Would recommend going down and staying here to anyone.

Content Customer!
A guest from West Chester, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in August, 2014
Clean, amenities were very good,larger kitchen than expected, coffee filters included(yes, thank you!). Enjoyed the firepit and the firewood already there. Enjoyed the use of the grill. Convenient and safe location. Close to many destinations in the area. Although the other rental home is very close (not seen in this photo), we felt like it was private. Air conditioning a plus! Only 1 little mishap with needing better communication with owner (no code provided ahead of time as promised and no return of calls or email) - Once that was figured out, all was well! We would definitely stay again and recommend this place to others. Would be nice in winter to be able to use the fireplace.

Schaefer House Family Weekend
Tonya K. from Pittsburgh, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2014
My family and I enjoyed our weekend and the cabin. We especially enjoyed the fruit trees and bushes around the house. Another feature we liked was the outside fire pit. Also the large front porch with chairs and swing was nice. The cabin was very clean and comfortable. We loved the location of the cabin. It was close to white water rafting, the natural water slides, biking trails and zip lining which were the activities we planned to do. There were few negatives about our stay at Schaefer house. One negative is that the pictures online made it look like the cabin was away from any other houses or roads, which is what my family and I wanted. However the Schaefer house is actually right next to another house and the road. This is not a big deal, it's just not what we were expecting and hoping for. Another negative was the fact that there was only one bathroom for 8 people to share. This was not a big deal either; it just would have been nice to have a second bathroom. Lastly, we are extremely thankful that Ohiopyle Vacation Rentals were understanding and kind enough to refund August 1st Friday due to the fact that my grandpa, my dad's father, passed away July 29th therefore we could not stay at Schaefer house Friday night because the funeral was Saturday morning. Our complaint is that we were refunded only the $250 and not the 9% tax associated with it. Therefore we are paying for the taxes related to Friday night, when in fact we did not stay Friday night. Which according to the rental agreement there's a total of 9% tax therefore that's $22.50 for one night's stay. Not a huge deal, but if I'm being refunded something it only makes sense that the taxes associated would also be refunded. All in all, we had a fun, family weekend at Schaefer house in Ohiopyle and that's what matters. Yes, I would stay in a house through OVR again and yes, I would recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in the Ohiopyle area.

My stay was perfect. The house was very clean and exactly what you see in the pictures. Perfect for my rustic wedding. Although, they don't quite let you know the cabin is so close, it is but we rented both and it worked great. A lot of room to ourselves and a big yard for activities (where we put a tent and held a wedding) it is by a highway too so keep that in mind, but didn't bother us. Very nice home.

Had a great stay, beds pretty marginal, but house was clean and nice. Would stay again, but would rather look for a rental in this area with 2 baths and queen/king beds. Sorry, but use to having those amenities. (For other reasons, tried to contact rental management during our stay, but wasn't able to connect.)

the only item I was dissatisfied with was I called your office and left a message to call back reference questions. I never received a call back. Kind of felt that as you already had our money and did not feel it was necessary to contact me. I could be wrong but have no way of knowing as your staff did not return the call.

Nice - but needs a couple things
A guest from Rockville, MD recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in October, 2013
The house was nice, in general hard surfaces were clean. Kitchen & bathroom upgrades were done very well, had all the amenities needed.We were a little disappointed that the Orndorff Cabin was about 40-50 feet away, but they have the porches layed out so your not staring at each other. We were expecting something a little more secluded. Luckily our second night nobody was occupying the other unit.2 things that we thought needed attention were the couches are in a serious need of vacuuming and steam cleaning or replaced with leather or vinyl. Second the beds were ungodly unconfortable. If we stay here again we will bring our air matress, we slept on the pull out couch the second night...which still was bad but was better. Charcoal grill worked great and had plenty of grill space for tons of food, the fire pit was nice and big nestled next to the orchard. We had a great time, but needed a hot tub after sleep.

Ohiopyle wedding/ PA sight seeing
Reviewed by: Carole K. recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in September, 2013
We loved the was very homey! It was in a great location. The only things we thought we would add would be night lights upstairs in the hall and perhaps some solar lights around the outside of the 's very dark out there. And Addresses on the houses and at the road. It would be a nice touch if you provided wood for campfires and charcoal for grills. I know it's an added expense for you but when your renting a home, it's stuff you really don't think about packing and really shouldn't have was over 800.00 dollars for our 3 night stay...I think you could spare some charcoal/campfire wood.I hope to visit again.

Just call this a house that looks like a cabin
William C. from brooklynn heights, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013
This cabin was way more than what we were expecting. I would call this a condo or home that looks like a cabin. There were a few basic amenities it did not have or have much of (like soap, toilet paper,fire wood) which we found odd because it had soo many other things (like built in air conditioner and cable TV) that pure convenience. Overall great place to stay and would stay there again!!!

Stayed for 2 days in August, 2013
Loved this very clean, new cottage--so cozy with wonderful front porch and swing. We enjoyed the firepit (have to find own wood) and the setting among fruit trees. Wish we could have stayed longer! The kitchen could be a bit more furnished--no small plates, no pitcher to store drinks. That's our only complaint.

The house was great. My only suggestion would be that the outdoor space have some privacy. It was very exposed tot he road and other houses. The fruit trees were wonderful- perhaps more could be planted between houses and road. And an outdoor foot wash would be great.

Our group of seven rented Schaefer for a repeat visit. Beautiful home with a great location. Two minor concerns: no drain plugs in the kitchen sink (signs all over the place about conserving the well water-had to invent a drain so as to not waste water); not enough large skillets or pots (for pasta) for a group our size....brought them from home. The staff is great to work with. We'll do it again next year.

Good Location
A guest from Bethel Park, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in July, 2013
Jordan Zeigler never returned one of my phone calls. I had to practically chase her to make my reservation. The day before we arrived I left a message asking for instructions to get into the property. I never heard from her and had to call her again once we arrived to get the lockbox code. My actual conversations with here were very pleasant and helpful, but her availability and response time were quite frustrating.The mattresses on the property are abysmal. Everyone had a hurting back when we left. The owners need to invest in decent mattresses. The leg on the ottoman is broken (was like this when we arrived) it falls off every time the ottoman is moved. Everything else about the property was great. If new mattresses are purchased we would stay there again.

Nice place
A guest from NORWALK, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2013
We enjoyed our stay. It is an old farmhouse, with a nicely-updated and well-equipped kitchen and bathroom. The rest of the place is rustic-style with original wood flooring. Enjoyed the porch, but the view of the overgrown barn foundation (no barn, just a cinderblock foundation with brush all over it) took away from the experience. OVR's website description should have been more definitive about this property's lack of a dishwasher or Internet. The two abandoned, half-done and also overgrown houses at the back of the property were a little disheartening. Another rental is in front of and very close to the Schaefer house. But overall, the positives far outweighed any negatives.

Once we got in it was very nice.

Review of The Schaefer House
Mary M. from Pittsburgh, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in July, 2013
Our group loved the location of the Schaefer House. We were in the area for an 80th birthday celebration, held at The Stone House, and it was very convenient to both this and Ohiopyle (for our rafting trip). My only problem with this place was that the refrigerator did not appear too clean and we did not have enough towels for our group (5 of them for 7 of us and only one hand towel. I did put in a call to the office upon my arrival at the number provided and left a message but I guess it was after hours on Friday. I did receive a message the next day and returned it late afternoon; cell phone service was uneven and we were rafting for most of the day. We adapted- we used our own beach towels and wiped down the fridge bins.This in no way would affect my desire to stay here again and I thoroughly recommend the Schaefer House. There is plenty of rooms and views. Loved all the furniture.

We attended a Jeep Jamboree at Nemacolin and the house was in an ideal location. Our dog, Roman, was able to stay at the house, as well. He enjoyed walking around all of the property and watching the wild turkeys. We did lots of hiking at Ohiopyle, which was minutes away. We used the grill just about every night and enjoyed the large fire pit. Super clean! The house is pretty close to the main road, but traffic noise wasn't an issue. For sure we'll be back. Thanks for making our stay great :)

The house was just the right size for our family (4 adults and 1 toddler). The location was great for getting between Ohiopyle attractions and all of those on Route 40, and a comfortable and relaxing place to return to at the end of the day. Only complaints was that the view was somewhat marred by the half-finished concrete structure by the front porch, and the floors were not very clean (dusty under the furniture).

Location was good considering the last minute change.
A guest from pittsburgh, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in August, 2012
The place we were supposed to stay in was Sugarloaf. However, due to circumstances out of the rental company's control (there were problems with the well) we had to re-book a different location. We ended up staying at schafer House, which was nice and large enough to accomidate us, but as close to it's neighbor as my home in the city. This would be a great place if you rented both, and still wasn't bad since the neighbors were very nice. Also we were told that the sound of us outside did not carry into their cabin at night which is also a plus. All in all I would rent from OVR without second thought.

Very nice stay at the Schaefer House
Amy W. from Baltimore, MD recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in May, 2012
House is very old style farmhouse which I really liked. However the house is on a very busy street so it doesn't have the "out of the way" feeling one may expect. Very pretty property but there are three "half built" houses on the property that distract from the beauty, especially the cement right in front of the house. Couldn't really figure that out. Ohiopyle is such a great little town but everything closes very early. A post dinner ice cream trip found everything pretty much shut down at 8:00 pm.

Overall, this house was exactly what we needed for a quick weekend get together with some friends. The house was very close to the river. The grill was brand new and the house was very spacias. It would have been nice if there was a little walking path to go to the top of this hill. It was wild and unkept with partially finished homes. The field close to the house was well kept and perfect for playing. I would stay there again.
