Christmas together

4.6 on January 21, 2016

Our family "took over" the bed and breakfast over Christmas whiched worked wonderfully. We filled all four rooms and had the place to ourselves. It was beautifully decorated and the perfect place to spend Christmas away from home. Jim was so accommodating, flexible and helpful. Thanks for your hospitality!

Comfortable and homey

Stayed here at the same time my sister and brother-in-law did during the time of a death in the family. The rates were really reasonable, our hosts were accommodating, and went out of their way to make sure that our stay was comfortable and welcoming. Our family was able to visit us while we stayed and share time together in the library, living room, and back patio - and that made it a truly memorable stay.

Perfect place to stay

A Wonderful Stay

I stayed here for 6 nights as I attended a business training. Wow! I couldn't have been more impressed. Jim was a top notch host and I wouldn't hesitate to return here again. And again! The rooms are lovely, the atmosphere is great and there are plenty of little nooks indoors and outside to sit and relax. Thank you, Jim for your attentiveness, as well as your pleasant and engaging demeanour. I felt like I was at home while I stayed at your B&B!

Hidden Gem Just Outside Pittsburg

Whenever I travel in to visit family, my first choice is ALWAYS the Mainstay. It is warm and inviting as are the proprietors Jim and Brian who are always so personable and fun to chat with. Unlike some B&Bs, the Mainstay's common rooms are offer comfortable furniture and ammenities where you can "hang" and read or watch TV without losing the charm of an old home. Their back patio is also a wonderful place to enjoy an afternoon tea or late night drink. I'm a pretty particular person and so I really appreciate the extent they they go to ensure my stay is always perfect! I highly recommend the Pine Room. The bed is super comfortable and I love the jacuzzi tub!

Warm and welcoming

Our first B & B experience was fantastic! Jim was the perfect host. The common rooms were elegantly decorated yet comfortable and welcoming. Our bedroom and private bath were nicely appointed and no detail was left unattended. We will look for a reason to return and highly recommend a stay here. The sign over the entry door read: You"enter as strangers and leave as friends" ...truer words were never written!!! Thank you Jim for making our stay so memorable!! Mary Carroll and Ted

Cozy Delight

We were lucky to stay at the Mainstay during the holiday season. We entered to holiday music and lovely decorations throughout. The first floor has plenty of cozy nooks for guests to relax and unwind. Our guest room was spacious and comfortable. The modern bathroom just added to our comfort. We woke up to a delightful continental breakfast the next morning. The owners are so accomodating. They even helped us find glue for a broken earing before our holiday party. We enjoyed a night cap next door before heading to bed in the evening. I hope to get back there soon!!!!

Very Nice

I had a terrific 2 night stay at the Mainstay. The accommodations were great. What a great location, with a wonderful restaurant right next door. The only thing that would make this "Outstanding" all the way around would be to have a home-cooked breakfast in the morning. I spite of that... I highly recommend the Mainstay.

Wonderful relaxed weekend

4.8 on October 14, 2012

Just returned from a wedding weekend in Pennsylvania where we and a bunch of family stayed at the Mainstay and at the next door Hotel Saxonburg. It was wonderful--Jim, Brian, and of course Buddy (the dog) made us feel welcome and relaxed the whole time, and provided us with a venue to visit with and enjoy family aside from the actual wedding celebration. The B&B itself is very attractive, warm, and welcoming, and the hosts make it even more so. Definitely recommend, and we will come again when we are in the area.
