Charming third floor room with a private bath with claw-foot tub with shower. The room is decorated in period antiques and faces the back garden. It is quiet. Guests have full access to the kitchen, both front and back porches and two parlors.

The space

Our house originally build by a coal and lumber baron at the turn of the past century. The house features stunning original woodwork and patterned hardwood floors. It is in the highly walk-able Friendship neighborhood, minutes from Shadyside, East Liberty, CMU, Pitt and the University hospitals.

Guest access

Guests have access to the whole house. Join us for a glass of wine in the evening or coffee or tea in the morning.

Interaction with guests

My partner, Tony and I call this home but we love guests and meeting new people. That said, we always are respectful of ones privacy.

Our stay with Kevin & Tony was perfect. They were wonderful and gracious hosts, and their historic home is beautifully decorated. Such a great home with great hosts and a great value in the city. Would definitely stay with them again!

This place is amazing and Kevin the best host! We spent 2 nights in this most beautiful home which provides you with all you desire (cozy and quiet bedroom; private bathroom, easy Wifi, recommendations where to go to eat and how to visit museums and places in town)! You will find yourself surrounded by the flair of the 'Gilded Age' in Pittsburgh in this super-well maintained and preserved gem of a 1900 villa! The only thing we regret is that we had simply no time to check out the backyard with the garden - next time!

Second time staying here while for activities at CMU. Close walk to Ellsworth and Walnut and such a great home! Charming and beautiful exterior and interior. The hosts are the mosts and I always feel welcome. It's a home away from home and I love staying there!

This was the best possible Airbnb experience. Kevin and Tony are top-notch hosts - just really good people, considerate and accommodating in the best possible way. Kevin's house is a large, beautifully-restored Victorian, exquisitely appointed and very clean, yet comfortable and inviting. We spent a good amount of time on the front porch in the evening, and had breakfast in the morning on the back porch, overlooking their beautiful yard. Our room and bath were lovely and comfortable, everything we needed was provided. As for location, It's in a great spot for access to CMU, Pitt, Lawrenceville, Shadyside and East Liberty. This will easily be my first choice for a place to stay next time I return to Pittsburgh.

Kevin and Tony are the most hospitable hosts that anyone could wish for. Their knowledge of the city and perfect location made for a fantastic weekend in the city. Their home is charming and very comfortable. I would recommend their place to anyone visiting Pittsburgh!

After working for JP Morgan for 25 years, including the last 4 years in Hong Kong, I accepted a severance package from the firm in 2009. I now live in Pittsburgh, my ancestral home with my partner of ten years, Tony Licon. Together, we own a large Victorian home in the Friendship neighborhood of the city - an ethnically and economically diverse neighborhood. I love traveling and have visited over 32 countries and have desires to visit many more. I am a passionate and proud Pittsburgh Steelers season ticket holder. Interests include running, biking, reading, and politics.
