The Casselman River Loft is located in the town of Confluence nestled in the Laurel Highlands Mountains. The Loft is on the 2nd floor of the former Confluence High School building. The Loft is located near the center of the town along the Casselman River and just off the GAP bike trail. 

The loft is entirely private but the rest of the building is occupied by Immersion Research, an outdoor gear company.  Operations include sewing, light manufacturing, shipping, warehousing, offices, and a retail shop. 

The Loft is brand new (finished early 2022) has huge windows, modern decor and is very spacious. Along with the river view, you can also see the old railroad bridge that now hosts the GAP bike trail. The trail access is a minute or two out the door.  

The loft can accommodate up to 8 people. There are 2 bedrooms. One bedroom with a king size bed with full ensuite bathroom. The other bedroom has 2 queen beds and a full bath right outside the door. There is a comfortable queen size futon in the main living area. 

The loft has an open floor plan in the kitchen/living/dining area. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you’ll need. There is a smart TV and high speed, wireless internet.  Verizon/Sprint/AT&T cell phones work well from the house. The house has central A/C. All linens and towels are provided. With 4 distinct seasons, the Loft is available year round.

Make a day swimming and boating at the Yough Lake just around the corner. Take a break from your ride through from DC to Pittsburgh on the bike trail or spend the day biking shorter routes in either direction. Kayak or pick up a raft trip in nearby Ohiopyle. Make this the perfect retreat for trips to the 2 Frank Lloyd Wright homes: Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob. We are centrally located to the ski resorts (Wisp, Seven Springs & Hidden Valley).

Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, a family planning the ultimate recreational vacation or old friends looking for a quiet retreat our home is the perfect setting. Come back year after year and explore the wonders of the Laurel Highlands.

There is a deck planned for sometime in the short future. The door you may see in some photos is dead bolt locked and can not be opened until the deck is complete. 

I grew up in Confluence and graduated from Turkeyfoot High School. At about 10 years old I learned to kayak with my dad. Kayaking quickly became my passion, and I raced slalom on the US Team for 13 years. I met my husband, John, through kayaking. In 1997 we started a business making kayaking gear called Immersion Research (IR) in our basement. Eventually we moved IR into the former Confluence high school. In 2013 later purchased it. It's been a dream of ours to build a loft apartment in the building since the day we moved in. That dream finally became a reality and we are excited to share it.
