We are located on a 115 acre former dairy farm in western Pennsylvania. We still run a working farm, with beef cows and calves and horse boarding facilities. Our lodge has six guest rooms with varied themes to appeal to many different tastes. The grounds include woods, fields, wonderful views and a small trout stream that is stocked in the spring. The site is secluded even though we are less than an hour from Pittsburgh and minutes from major highways.To "get away from it all" without going too far away, Locust Brook Lodge is just the place!
Delightfully French, this room with King-size bed, TV, and telephone is decorated in romantic pink and green floral print. The full bath includes a whirlpool tub and separate shower. Check in time is 3:00PM - 8:00PM and Check out time is 12:00 Noon.
Red-jacketed riders and magnificent horses form the back drop to this two room suite. Done in burgundy and hunter green, the sitting room has a day-bed with trundle that can be used as 2 twins or 1 king bed. Check in time is 3:00PM - 8:00PM and Check out time is 12:00 Noon.
Cheerful is the word for this blue and yellow room, a salute to our feathered friends.

This room will appeal to the fisherman or woman, from the earth tone colors to the fishing gear displayed. Bath includes barrier free shower and other fixtures for handicapped access, including strobe smoke alarm for hearing impaired guests. There is a love seat that opens to sleep an extra person, queen sized bed and a private entrance. Check in time is 3:00PM - 8:00PM and Check out time is 12:00 Noon.
The soft south-west colors show off the collection of pottery displayed in this room, which has a private entrance, queen sized bed and full bath. Check in time is 3:00PM - 8:00PM and Check out time is 12:00 Noon.
Country is the mood in this homey room of bright colors and simple accessories. But the proof that country can have all the comforts is evident in the queen size bed and generous easy chair. The private french doors look out on a maple grove, home to deer and other wildlife. The full bath has a whirlpool tub. Check in time is 3:00PM - 8:00PM and Check out time is 12:00 Noon.

Quiet and peaceful. Cleanliness was outstanding , and it had a sort of country charm. Breakfast left a little to desire, but also in the hosts' defense all guests had very different schedules. I will definately stay again in the future.

She has 6 rooms total, but two rooms in the back with direct access to a patio and private driveway for people with pets along! We had a need for one that accepted pets and before we could only find Super 8 and Days Inn in Butler that accepted them. Now I found this place! The area is wooded, so plenty of things for your dog to sniff. We stayed in the "trout room" and it was worth every penny of $80/night which makes it particularly attractive because of the no pet fee. Super 8 is $65 per night + $15 per pet per night. There is one other pet welcome room at this B&B and it is a bit more in price because of a jacuzzi tub. The house and grounds are beautiful and well cared for. The rooms are spacious and comfortable in a "this is a home, not a hotel" way. Snacks and breakfast are provided. The only niggling small complaint if I had to find one is that breakfast on the final day was a little "light" compared to all the other mornings when she served eggs, sausage, quiche and the like. We only wish the last morning was just as "hearty". It's a minor quibble in that our expectation that was set on previous mornings didn't quite match. Regardless, it was a much better experience that you will get at a "continental breakfast" and B&B's in Butler, PA are not very common. We definitely will stay again if we are back for family!

My boyfriend and I wanted do some hiking locally and just relax over the President's day weekend. We found the Locust Brook Lodge on a whim and made a last minute reservation. Carol was wonderful - she knows a lot about the area and it was so nice to hear the history of how she became a bed and breakfast owner. Great little find - we will be back.

My wife and I had dropped in Locust Brook Lodge in a rainy Saturday night on our regular trip between Michigan and DC. Heavy rain and numerous road construction slowed us down, and Carol waited for us well past 11pm. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Carol for her hospitality.

This was our first time at any bed&breakfast but it will not be our last. We are a family of 4 adults so we had the suite, and it was wonderful - comfy and quiet. I only wish we could have spent a few more hours there.
