Family vacation to Ohiopyle
Sheila M. from COLUMBUS, MI recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2018
This property was very nice. We had three couples and two children. Everyone was very satisfied with the house the outdoor area and the location. We will definitely be back. Very close to Ohiopyle and very secluded at the same time.

Great place to stay for a Ohiopyle vacation. The house and grounds are so nice in such a picturesque setting. We loved being out in the woods, but so close to all the fun things to do in Ohiopyle. Rafting, Trails and playing in the Yough!

Great trip
Carrie H. from Lancaster, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in July, 2018
The trip was great and the house was perfect for our families. We had 3 little boys from 5 to 8 and they had so much room to run and we didn't have to worry too much since the property was secluded. The grill was great to cook our meals. It was so relaxing to sit on the porch. All was clean and tidy for our stay. It was just a really nice experience.

A guest from Sylvania, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in June, 2018
We loved the cabin--great location, secluded, very clean and bug-free. When we lost power after a storm, someone came out quickly to check on the property. After we returned home, however, and emailed OVR we never even received a response, when one clearly was desired and indicated. Not great customer service.

We would stay here again!
A guest from Hamburg, Hamburg recommends this property.
Stayed for 10 days in April, 2018
Our first impression of the property caused some uncertainty. There are several collapsing buildings on the property surrounding the house. However, once inside we were very happy with the house. It was very clean, the linens and towels seemed to be new. The kitchen was well supplied with glasses, cups and cutlery and all appliances worked well. However, there were only 12 large plates and bowls and no small ones. The internet connection is unfortunately weak and unstable. The property is secluded and we enjoyed seeing deer and turkeys in the yard. We would rent this property again.

Stuart the mouse
A guest from Carnegie, PA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 2 days in March, 2018
This cabin provided plenty of space for our group of eight! I want to say it was clean, because it was, except for the mice poop throughout the drawers and cabinets. This is definitely not the place to stay if you are not fond of mice! We had one make his appearance after only being there for two hours and he was not afraid to just hang out in the kitchen with us. We didn't mind, except for again, the mouse poop throughout the kitchen drawers was rather gross. Also, a very tricky front door that none of us could figure out whether it was locked or not causing us to get locked out on the first night. However, the staff responded quick and got some one over to get us in. Property was accurately described and what we expected from the images online.

We stayed at this beautiful cabin for my 40th birthday and we could not have been more impressed! The cabin was clean, well heated, and the road and drive way were plowed for us. The place was excellent and very close to anything you?d like to do in the area. The surrounding woods were also gorgeous. We will definitely stay here again!

Adventure awaits!
Stephanie D. from New Middletown, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in January, 2018
Pura vida is true to its name! Seven friends gathered for a weekend away from reality and relaxed in the winter wonderland that fell upon us. The cabin was very comfortable, cozy, clean and had everything?s we needed to make our weekend fun. There were enough beds for everyone and they were cozy for a cabin. We loved the layout and enjoyed the space the kitchen afforded us. If it were not winter time we would definitely explored the property more.The only thing I thought could use some attention was the driveway (needed gravel or something to help with driving to the house) and a better pathway to the porch from the driveway. However I am going to assume this is taken care of during the regular season. Do not trust GPS. It will land you at a location w/o a cabin or house on it. GOS shows a street called Lytel road, but it is really Pressley Ridge Road. One last thing: this cabin is great for the price! You cannot get any better than his for the number of beds and rooms this cabin has!

Early Christmas
Jim M. from Gettysburg, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in December, 2017
We had a wonderful time. The cabin was really nice but a little hard to find. It had a couple of things that we think should be addressed for the money that we spent. The kitchen was nice but needed some attention, like handles on the doors. The refrigerator drawers need to be fixed, it was hard to put food and drinks in there. Maybe some more big bowls and pots and pans. I was not happy that we called three times the day of arrival to ask some questions and not one person returned our call. If the house is not handicap excess able, it should say so on Home Away. There are no bedrooms on the first floor so our disabled family member had to sleep on the couch and that is not a pullout. If we would have known that ahead of time, we would have been able to prepare better. On the brighter side, the property was beautiful. It is a great place to get away if you want to be secluded. They did have a beautifully lit and decorated Christmas tree in the family room for our arrival. That was really nice.

Beautiful Setting, Odd Floor Plan
A guest from Bethesda, MD recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in October, 2017
First: GPS took us to the wrong turnoff--so be sure to double-check directions with OVR before your arrival. We rented Pura Vida for a week to accommodate family members gathering for a wedding. The house can sleep 12 people as advertised--but we were unprepared for the fact that 6 of the 12 would have to share one bedroom, and 4 would have to share another. We made it work, but we'd been told by OVR that there was a den with a pullout couch downstairs as well as the 3 bedrooms, which wasn't correct. The home is in need of attention (at least half of the kitchen cabinets lack knobs, many fixtures lack bulbs, the laundry room is dirty), but the setting is lovely, and the areas where we gathered for meals and conversation were great.

The house had a mouse problem and the company was unresponsive
Anthony B. from Columbus, Ohio does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 5 days in August, 2017
We spent 5 nights there in August. The house is delightful and very private. The wood floors and paneling are charming and the stuffed birds and animals throughout the home add some character, though they might not be for everyone. The upstairs is carpeted throughout and was clean. The rooms and linens were clean and the beds were comfortable. The location on the edge of Ohiopyle State Park is very convenient for park access. However, our experience was not good and we will not be doing business with Ohio Vacation Rentals (OVR) again. This house has a mouse infestation and the company was unresponsive, ignoring our repeated calls. We saw mice in the kitchen and living room and found mouse droppings in the kitchen cabinets and drawers, including in the cutlery tray. The droppings appeared to have been there for weeks or months. OVR twice promised to come out and clean the kitchen and twice failed to do so. Avoid this company. We had to clean the cutlery and crockery ourselves and store it all in the oven to be sure that it was not contaminated while we were out. This company will take your money (we were required to pay in full before arriving) and then ignore you if you have concerns.

Wonderful experience, beautiful cabin
Reviewed by: Eileen P. recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in August, 2017
We were a group of nine, including family members and friends of our college-aged children. We were very happy with the cabin itself--very spacious and clean. The rooms were large enough so everyone felt like they had space. The location was a bit remote, so very woodsy and beautiful but a bit scary at first. The outside abandoned buildings detracted from the grounds. The cabin itself was as described. Only negatives were that the fire pit was a distance from the cabin and difficult to find, and we were never able to find the hair dryer or washer and dryer that we thought were included. But overall a wonderful experience. We would definitely stay here again when in the area.

Pura Vida - needs cleaned!
A guest from Milton, PA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 2 days in July, 2017
We were thrilled to rent this house in Ohiopyle, but upon arrival found it extremely dirty (e.g., dog hair throughout the house, windows full of bugs, floors dirty) and poorly maintained (e.g., air conditioning broken, missing handles on half of the kitchen cabinets, stuffed animal trophies broken, etc.). I spent the first 3 hours of our stay cleaning the house because we had small children and it was raining so we were stuck inside. I called the property management company the next morning to alert them and they said they would send a cleaning crew out, but they never arrived. When I called to tell them, they were surprised and promised to have another manager contact me to follow-up. I never received any calls. I have called back over 7 times within the last 2 weeks and never received a call back. Having to clean a home that you spend a lot of money to enjoy, was not my idea of a fun-filled weekend. I was very disappointed in the lack of responsiveness from Ohiopyle Vacation Rentals and would not recommend them again. This house was very spacious and seemed like a great idea, but sadly this company provides very poor customer service.

Stayed for 3 days in June, 2017
The cabin was great, we enjoyed our stay at pura vida. It was close to the river for rafting and close to the golf courses, yet it remained private and tucked away in the woods. Our only knock was that the previous renters trash was not taken out and bring your own toilet paper. They ran out. The fire pit could be a bit closer to the cabin. Aside from those minor complaints, we will definitely be back. We had a great time at pura vida.

Stayed for 3 days in June, 2017
My family and I had a great time on vacation at Ohiopyle. The house was clean and all that was listed was there. The GPS directions were off we ended up on a dirt road in a wood area. U need to drive further and around the corner to find it. I think more signs along the road would be helpful. And clearing out the entrance way. The house is definantly secluded but is in a good location to get everywere. The house it self was clean but need some updateing. Some of the decorations looked like they were from someones yard sale. The furniture was worn, the dinning chairs need recovering. The washer and dryer were in the basement that was wet and scary. We also found crickets in it. I think moving it upstairs in the bathroom would be better. both full bathrooms were clean but need shelfs for the clean towels. The kitchen and appliance were very new. The bedrooms were huge. One had a king bed w 2 doubles, the second had 2 double beds and the third has a double. New carpet in the whole upstairs. Need nightstands with lights in each room would be helpful. The outside had many out buildings and chicken coops. Was kinda creepy. The fire pit was a nice size but was behind one of the sheds. Did not like that once it got dark and we saw a bear. The pond was not big, again behind another shed, and only had a few fish. I think some new landscaping would improve it the over all feel of the house. Also no outside tables just 3 adrondeck chairs. Only a charcoal grill. The house needs a good powerwash, some wasps nest were forming under screens and over hangs. Furnace and Ac worked great, and plenty of hot water. Thanks

Pura Vida - Private, Clean & Relaxing
Carole H. from Kutztown, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 8 days in June, 2017
We had a great and Relaxing time at Pura Vida. Both of us loved the privacy and quiet. We could tell the house had good bones. And whomever the previous owners were, they apparently put heart and soul into it. I truly appreciated all the details in both construction and decorating. I felt the furnishings were comfortable. The ceiling fans throughout the house were great. We spent a lot of time on the porch. However, we brought our own chairs. (Easier to get out of). The porch needed a sweep and some wasp spray, but all was good. We even used the Bear as an outdoor eating counter. Plus we somehow survived and enjoyed many activities in the area.. Salt room in Bruceton, WV. , horseback riding at Circle R in MD, Laurel Highlands rafting, and bike riding. Dining at Stone house and Braddock Inn (forgot our discount)Falls City, Ohiopyle Cafe. All was very good.The cleaning crew does a fantastic job. I spilled some water on the floor and not a spec of dirt was on the paper towel that I used to clean it up. We felt a few things that could be improved upon. Such as, a mirror would have been useful in the 1st floor bath. It's a beautiful bathroom, but no effective way to see how to fix hair or make up. (Female thing) (I guess a man may have a hard time shaving also). Plus, hooks and towel bars. Better trash cans. I apologize for the trash can securing system I rigged up, but I couldn't deal with Mr. Smarty Raccoon, ripping into the trash every night. It would be nice if someone could reinstall the kitchen cabinet handles. The missing and loose handles detracted from the character. Plus, we both had a good laugh about the kitchen built for giants. Both of us are around 5'2". Reaching was a bit of a stretch. Haha But overall nothing that couldn't be dealt with. We know everything wont be perfect, and that is part of the charm and challenge in vacation renting. And this place was, by far, better than any of the rest we have rent

Visited with 8 friends on a rainy weekend. Very happy to have so much space when we were stuck inside a lot. The house was clean. Furniture was comfortable. Climate control worked well. Big refrigerator/kitchen to make meals at home. Overall, very happy with the site. Only negatives, the driveway is shared with a couple other properties, firepit is far from house, showerheads are weak, and the outbuildings/trailer are disconcerting.(Google maps led me the wrong way coming from the direction of the town of Ohiopyle - non-existent road. Maybe add directions?)

Our stay with 6 adults and two dogs was very relaxing. The bedrooms were spacious and there was enough space to enjoy movies, games, reading, relaxing and dogs all at the same time. Pros: house layout, George's hiking, bike trails, Fallingwaters tour, and lights & gingerbread house at the resort nearby. Cons: wasn't "homey" (no xmas decor, couldn't use fireplace, ), and some lights out, puddle in basement.

Into the Woods
A guest from La Canada, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in October, 2016
This was more than we hoped for. We loved the cabin and hope to rent it again in the future. Having traveled across the country to have a long weekend we were tired upon arriving at Pittsburgh's airport. So there were a few things that made finding the cabin difficult.Note that these gestures are more significant to someone who does not live within a few hours of the area.1) No directions or maps were provided by the management company. Our driving app were inadequate and no help on the smaller roads.(We got lost in the area for more than 1.5 hours!)2) No landmarks were given such as "Look for the oval sign with OVR's logo on it"3) no lights were left on near the property or inside the house. (We arrived after dark).4) Some basic housekeeping supplies (dishwasher soap and plastic garbage bags) should be provided, especially since guests are required to run the dishwasher as well as dispose of trash prior to departure.

First off I will start with my first impression upon arriving. The Front Porch needs some TLC.. Shovels and Skis and etc in the corner by the door.. NOT enough seating on porch or around property. A picnic table would of been nice. With a group of ladies we would of loved to sit outside but most had to stand as no where to sit. Could of brought outside chairs if was told of the seating outside.. Looked all over for firepit 1st night?????? We went out and looked around property and finally found it down a hill...Inside was very nice and clean. Needs some window cleaning. some light bulbs need replaced and handle on one of the kitchen drawers, this is just little things. We enjoyed our stay and would return. Peaceful setting and quiet.. I would just suggest to the owner to supply more seating as this Cabin can sleep 12. Pick up a few cute colorful inexpensive Adirondack chairs and spruce up the porch and it would be perfect... First impression is the key!

Wonderful, private vacation home
Laura M. from Stafford, VA recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in August, 2016
This is a wonderful rental property. The home is clean, comfortable and well furnished. The home is much more spacious than the pictures appear and provided more than enough space to fit our family comfortably. We stayed for the weekend but would love to have rented the property longer. Although there was outdoor seating, our Only suggestion is to add a table to eat outside.

I don't think we could have found a better spot for our family gathering (although the spot is a bit hard to find!). The house was spotless and everything was as promised. We look forward to returning next summer. There are lots of fun things to do in the area. Do bring bug spray though.

Great location
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2016
The house was very clean and spacious for our family of six. We easily could have had more in the house with us. The property is very nice. Very private and in the woods. There was plenty of open space for the kids to play outside as well. We were less than 15 minutes away from white water rafting on the Lower Yough. The Falling Water home is also only about 20 minutes away. I was a little surprised on the lack of supplies. For example, we did not have any pot holders and had to use towels when removing hot pans out of the oven. There was absolutely no hand or dish soap. The check-in documents did state to bring the hand soap, spices, salt and pepper, etc. Most homes we rent (we do for almost every vacation) has some of these amenities for you. We would stay here again I would just come more prepared to not have to buy the items in town where it is more expensive. We stopped at a Walmart about 30 minutes prior to the house and did our grocery shopping there. Bring a cooler to put your cold items in for the remainder of the ride. The one market in town is small and more expensive. Finally, the rental company sent us a reminder on what day they would be charging for final payment (30 days prior to attending per policy), but then took our last payment five days earlier than they stated they would. We were fortunate enough to have the money in our account but this could have been a major issue if we were not prepared.

Pura Vida

Stayed for 2 days in July, 2016
Love Ohiopyle love being in the woods so peaceful the home was perfect. Only problem is check in times and check out times. We did not realize when booking how late and early the times were for in and out, with small children and animals it was a little chaotic, and when i called to arrange times no one called me back, finally I sent an email and the response read that it was not possible to have early check in and late check out. Not very accommodating considering how much it cost for a weekend. Bummer , although that aspect put a damper on out weekend we all had a wonderful time.

Too Remote with Too Many Outbuildings
A guest from Martinsburg, WV does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 2 days in July, 2016
The house itself is a very nice home and vacation rental, however the multiple out buildings made it less than comfortable for our stay. They were very scary and all unlocked and with no neighbors for 3 miles, I wouldn't stay there again. We were extremely close to Nemocolin Resort, which I didn't expect and also close to the two restaraunts in Farmington.

Great place to stay with family!
A guest from Palmyra, IN recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in April, 2016
We live in the Midwest & family lives on the east coast. We met at this cabin for the weekend. It was lovely! Very clean, spacious house & yard. There was room for the children to run in the yard. Since it is on a side road, there was no traffic. The house sits back away from the road. There are lots of things to see and do within a 15 mile radius. There are 2 Frank Loyd Wright homes in the area, Ohiopyle State Park, & the Nemacolin Woodlands Resorts. For activities there is white river rafting, walking, hiking, & biking all nearby. We had most of our meals at the cabin, but there are numerous restaurants of historic value, high end restaurants, & sandwich shops around.

Bachelor Party Weekend
A guest from Washington, DC recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in August, 2015
Me and 9 of my best friends met up at Pura Vida for my bachelor party this past weekend. The house is perfect for a guys's weekend with its huge leather couches, firepit, grill, substantial sleeping space, and all of the kitchen and grilling amenities you would need. We ended up spending most of our time grilling and catching up around the firepit, but also took the 10 minute drive to Ohiopyle Park for white water rafting on the Lower Yough. The weekend was a fun and memorable experience, and I'd definitly recommend staying at Pura Vida.
