The space

Spacious and bright, this beautifully restored and updated apartment includes one bedroom, a large living room, an eat-in kitchen and a newly renovated full bathroom. As you enter the apartment from a lovely common area featuring brass sconces, the first room to your right is a private full bathroom. The bathroom has a black wood floor, a tub, a shower head with a hand sprayer, a small pedestal sink with a large oval mirror above it and a toilet. Four sets of towels are located in the apartment. A hairdryer and additional towels are stored on the shelves within the bathroom and are for your use. The next room you enter is the large eat-in kitchen. The kitchen cabinets are simple and white, the counters are a mottled tan laminate and the floor is wood. Large windows make the space bright although all of the windows have 2” white wood blinds for privacy. There is also a refrigerator, a gas oven and stove-top, a dishwasher and an electric washer/dryer combination in the kitchen. The single bowl stainless sink has a disposal and the kitchen drawers and cupboards contain kitchen towels, hot pads and pots & pans as well as dishes, glassware and flatware which are for your use. Small appliances like a coffee pot, a hot air popcorn popper and a toaster, etc. are either on the counters or in the cupboards. We have included a small supply of items like dishwasher detergent and dish soap, etc. for your convenience. We will not replace these as they are used up but we wanted you to at least be able to enjoy staying a few days without needing to purchase these basic supplies. We have also filled the canisters with some popcorn, flour, sugar and coffee.
Beyond the kitchen lies the living room. It is furnished with a new sofa a comfortable reclining chair, side tables and lighting. A television has been provided for your viewing needs; use of an HDMI cable is required to connect to a computer. The last room you will enter is the bedroom which features a striking black queen-size bed with a comfortable ‘Orthopedic Pillow Top’ mattress and box springs that has been covered in a lovely blue Matelassé coverlet. The bedroom also features a closet for storage and hanging clothes, a dresser, a side table and a table lamp. An attractive fireplace mantel, original to the building, adds interest as does the beautiful blue & white checker-covered chair nestled in the corner next to the mantel. The big front window and the smaller side windows let in lots of light and can all be opened for ventilation.

I will welcome each guest and help you get settled. We will give you the code to the electronic lock on the front door, and your apartment key code. We will provide you with your Wifi ID and password. We will explain all the amenities, and make sure you know where nearby shops and restaurants can be found.

Kate's place is very nice with great wifi. It is super clean and well taken care of. There is a grocery store and some local restaurants with 2 or 3 blocks.

Thank you, Dan! I try to have it clean as a whistle, so it's nice to have that recognized! And, yes, there are lots of stores and restaurants within walking distance!

Kate is an awesome host. The space was excellent - beautiful interiors, clean, comfortable and cozy. The neighborhood was safe, friendly and pleasant. Kate was very helpful, attentive and always quick with her responses - she made our stay all the more welcoming, comfortable and enjoyable. The apartment was stocked with all essential and it had more than what had been listed - very well thought out and done with a lot of passion. Kate gave us the assurance & confidence about how an Airbnb stay and service could be more value-added than hotel stays. This has been our first Airbnb experience and Kate has made us feel completely at home in her beautiful apartment. I would always come back to stay in her apartment and recommend this to anyone looking for a short stay in Pittsburg. Thank you Kate !

Katharine (Kate) User ProfileKatharine (Kate) is a superhost.

Katharine Luckett is the Owner & Proprietor of The Mellor House Apartments in Pittsburgh's East End. These apartments provide a comfortable and reasonably priced short-term housing option for business professionals, researchers, graduate students and tourists who desire to have easy access to points east of Forest Hills like Monroeville or Murrysville and/or to points to the west like Oakland and Downtown.

Kate believes that these attractively furnished and completely outfitted 1 and 2 bedroom apartments are the perfect alternative to expensive hotel stays for guests who will also appreciate the fact that they need only to arrive with their suitcase and settle in for a relaxing and productive stay.

Beginning 5 years ago when she opened The Mellor House Bed & Breakfast in her lovely Victorian home in nearby Edgewood, Kate has garnered an excellent reputation for hospitality and cleanliness that has many of her guests remarking that the accommodations she provides feel like their "home-away-from-home!"

Kate has taken many professional courses in hospitality and gardening over the last 30 years and is a certified Master Gardener. So both the inside and outside of the apartments reflect her attention to detail and her belief that beautiful and serene surroundings can be the cure for much of the stress we face on a daily basis. In addition, Kate has hosted guests from places near and far including Italy, Sweden, China, Brazil, Mexico, Canada, Germany, Pakistan, Thailand, India and the United States as well.

Kate loves Jesus and desires to be known as "a woman after God's own heart." And in her spare time, Katharine enjoys reading, gardening and spending time with her 3 adult daughters and her 2 young grandchildren.
