Welcome to the Alpine Hut!

This Airbnb is on the first floor of an 1890's home in the Mexican War Streets. Recently redone, you have access to your own room, bathroom and porch, as well as your own private entry. We have a drink cooler and coffee area for your use, as well as typical toiletries and extra blankets and towels. Parking is included.

We welcome everyone into our home, including those with furry friends.

The space

Our Airbnb is a private suite in our 1890's home, located in the Mexican War Streets neighborhood of Pittsburgh! In our opinion the Northside is the best neighborhood in Pittsburgh, and we'd love to show you why. With this Airbnb, you get your own room, bathroom and porch, as well as your own entry.

We are blocks away from the Mattress Factory and Randyland, and our neighborhood offers plenty of delicious restaurants, a brewery, as well as the city's oldest park and the National Aviary. We're close to downtown (1.5 miles) the stadiums (1.2 miles) and major highways (less than 1 mile), making this room is perfect for all kinds of travelers. Everything is easily accessed by car, bike, or walking; we have parking on the premises and a bike share is a few blocks away!

Note: we have two cats and a dog roaming around our areas of the house. They're more than friendly, but we also keep them separate from the Airbnb space.

Guest access

You have free reign in the entire Airbnb, which is on our first floor. You can also have access to our living spaces, which include our living room, kitchen, and a second porch, complete with grill and outdoor furniture. We have a back yard, which guests can use at their leisure.

Interaction with guests

That's up to you! We've travelled all over the States and Europe using Airbnbs, and some of our favorite experiences were when we went out for drinks with our hosts or visited with them over dinner. We'd love to hang out if the vibe is right, otherwise we can leave you alone. We'll happily share everything we know about the city with you, but we also have plenty of materials for you to peruse on your own.

Other things to note

The private entry to this Airbnb is through our backyard. You will have access to our parking pad through an alley, which can be tight at times. Otherwise there is free parking on the street.

If you come through the back door there is a flight of steps you will have to climb.

This place is the perfect depiction of what an Airbnb should be. I love the secludedness and the private space. It is done well with great extras like microwave, mini fridge, coffee pot and the board and binder of things to do and places to go. Very personalized and communication and parking are a great bonus. If I come back anytime soon I will choose this again!

Great stay. The private entrance, your own deck, and separation from the common areas via closed door really makes the place feel like private rental. The parking is off street, but very tight (for a Honda CRV). Internet is decent (30Mb/s) for streaming to your laptop. There's a lot of nice touches, such as a dorm fridge and snacks. Hosts are very amiable people. Will definitely stay again.

We loved your apartment so much! The bed was so smooth, and we had everything we needed. We really could have stayed longer in Pittsburgh!

This place is top notch the best Airbnb we ever tried. Private room, with private entry and own bathroom. Super clean and cozy. There is a fridge in the room with local brews and a whole lot of ideas on what to visit in pittsburgh. Susan is very friendly and a great host. Only downside is we could only stay one night and not a week!
