**Note the space still needs some finishing touches** 

It will be available to rent April 2022. 

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

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 an old school building converted into a sewing factory. The loft is entirely private but the rest of the building is still a working sewing factory, office, retail space and warehouse. The old school building is located near the center of the town along the Casselman River and just off the GAP bike trail. 

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 6 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. 

The loft has an open floor plan in the kitchen/living/dining area. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you’ll need. All linens and towels are provided. 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.With 4 distinct seasons, the house 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.

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 through kayaking. In 1997 my husband and I started a business making kayaking gear called Immersion Research (IR) in our basement. Eventually we moved IR into the old school building in town and a few years 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.
