The building was built in 1923 by Italian immigrants and has been restored to its natural beauty. Crystal chandeliers throughout create colorful dancing rainbows and complement the Art Deco and depression-era furniture. The rooms with private baths are themed to represent Connellsville's ethnicity--German, Irish, Slovak and Italian. Local attractions include hiking, biking and horseback riding the Great Allegheny Passage, canoeing, fishing and swimming in the Youghiogheny River, visiting Frank Lloyd Wright's house of Fallingwater, Kentuck Knob and Duncan House, skiing and much, much more.

i loved my stay at connellsville bed and breakfast! lucy was so warm and welcoming, the room was cute and clean, and the breakfast was filling and delicious. this place has a great atmosphere - it just looks and feels like home. it was so nice to come here after a long day, throw on a bathrobe, relax in a plush bed, and watch a movie on netflix. i could not ask for anything more.

On a whim we decided to treat ourselves to the more expensive German Room. I should say that we had a great stay. Clean and comfortable. Soft pillow top on the king mattress (which I suppose could be a problem for those with back trouble). They really spent some money on the multi-head shower/bath faucet combo and it felt like it. The b&b is only a couple traffic-free blocks from the GAP bike trail and a 25 minute car ride to Falling Water. Oh, and I can say with some experience that you won't find a better breakfast at other B&Bs. Good coffee, juice, fresh fruit, oatmeal with dried fruit choices, potatoes, onions, cheese, eggs, bacon, fresh veg, toast and preserves all made appearances in some combination on the two mornings we were there. For those biking the trail a killer breakfast has big value. The biggest drawback to this B&B is that Connellsville is not enjoyable in very many ways. It's kind of a beat up town that has seen better days. Nothing really in the way of interesting dining. The mex restaurant suggested is an ok hole in the wall. The italian place is an old chain with mediocre results. The setting and lack of dining options in the area led me to remove a star for the value of the stay. The room was the priciest choice, mostly do to expanded bathroom and small sitting room. The value of the rental could be improved by a full size couch that one could stretch out on. The other option that would be nice, given the price, would be a modest kitchenette. All the rooms share one small dorm fridge near the laundry. The proprietors have the space in the German Room's sitting room to keep one reading chair and add a single cabinet/countertop with a dorm fridge and perhaps a small microwave. As it was the sitting room did not seem to add much value and I reflected that in my review.

Wonderful place to stay just off of the Gap as we were biking. The owners were very nice and accommodating.

Our first stop on our bicycle ride from Pittsburgh on the great allegheny passage did not disappoint. John was most welcoming, giving us the tour, showing us where to secure our bikes and giving us dinner recommendations. Our room was lovely and most comfortable. Breakfast was great, loved the fresh fruit! Highly recommend.
