Weekend Getaway

4.8 on November 17, 2016

We enjoyed our stay at Seams Like Home. Our only complaint was that our shower attachment leaked and did not work very well. We liked all of the other amenities and enjoyed the quiet, peaceful nature of the property.

Wonderful Stay, Wonderful Host

We were biking the GAP trail and stayed here one night. The host picked us up in town. The rooms were very comfortable. I loved the home-made quilts. The breakfast was delicious. In the morning he drove us back to town to continue on our trip. I would definitely stay again.

The Very BEST B&D we have ever stayed at!

The owners were outstanding, the breakfast was fabulous, and the accommodations were extraordinary.

Good choice for B&B while biking the GAP trail

5 on July 04, 2016

We biked for 2 days and stayed at 3 B&B's. Undoubtedly our best breakfast was at this one--including omelette, fruit, sausage, juice (yogurt available but we didn't try it), and fully accommodating my wife who is vegetarian and allergic to some foods. Since this place is 3 miles from trail head, the shuttle was crucial; the owner expertly loaded our tandem bike on his truck, which had just the right equipment for a smooth and secure ride. Since this was the end of our trip, he also shuttled us to our car the next morning -- an hour drive away over country two-lanes, with his wife doing the navigating with her GPS. The room and facilities were excellent, including our own bathroom with tub and shower, and a sufficiently firm mattress. Bruce & Nancy

Seams Like Home really did seem like home! We loved the country setting, game room, and hospitality. Rich and Donna were wonderful hosts. We would definitely recommend Seams Like Home to others and hope to return in the future for more fun in the Laurel Highlands of PA! Scott & Becky C.

Great stop while riding the GAP trail

We spent the night in Connellsville, Pa while riding the GAP trail Seams Like Home is a few miles out of town but Rick picked us and our bikes up. The rooms were great and breakfast was incredible. Rick was informative and gracious. Would definitely stay there again. Highly recommend.

A Relaxed Stop in the PA Woods

4.0 on April 05, 2016

We took a mid stop to break up our trip [NY to IL] and go to Falling Waters. It was a pleasant night stay at Seams. The owners were friendly. The place was clean. We had a complete, home cooked breakfast. The rooms are separated from the owners living space and the guests have their own common area for playing pool, watching TV, cooking, etc. The home is nestled in the woods with exotic ducks floating in the pond. All in all, it was quite the restful break that we needed.

Great place to stay while riding the GAP

5 on October 12, 2015

Our group of 7 had a wonderful stay at Seams Like Home Oct. 1,2015. We were bicycling the GAP. We were shuttled for free the minute we called up to the B and B. Then shuttled to and from dinner in Connellsville later. It was nice to be in such a quiet countryside location. The rooms are large and beautifully decorated and very clean. We each had a private bath with a great shower. After dinner, we relaxed in the common room which had TV, computer, pool table. We were able to store our bikes inside securely. After a good nights sleep, Rick prepared a wonderful hot breakfast, then shuttled us back down to the trail. Friendliest, service, cleanliness were all of the highest quality. Our friend who was driving our gear was able to stay several more hours to do paperwork she needed to do in the common room without feeling rushed to check out. Highly recommend!

Great anniversary get away

5 on September 21, 2015

We had never tried a bed & breakfast before, and we're very, very pleased with the experience. The people we met were so much fun to talk with, and the common room, as well as breakfast together gave us a chance to talk with all of the other couples there- we sat for an hour and a half, just chatting! The owners were great, very accommodating, and the facility was just gorgeous. We will do this again!
