SUITE FRIENDSHIP (of the Old Economy Inn, an Historic B&B)

The Old Economy Inn consists of three lovingly renovated apartment suites, each with its own separate entrance, full kitchen, private bathroom, living room, bedroom, cable TV, free wi-fi, small library, and assortment of DVDs. Each suite also features its own central air and heating system.


All three suites are located within the Old Economy Village historical district, a national historical site 18 miles from downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The properties were originally built in 1825 by members of the German Harmonist Society.

SUITE FRIENDSHIP is on the second floor and features a queen-sized bed in the master bedroom and full-sized bed in the livingroom/den to accommodate kids or two extra adults. The bathroom features a tub-shower combination.

The price of a night's stay in any of our suites includes a home-cooked breakfast delivered to you the following morning at a time of your choosing!

(Note: for long-term guests booking at either the discounted weekly or monthly rate, breakfast is not included in the price but is available on request on an a la carte basis.)

Breakfast options include:

* Fritattas: spinach & parmesan or bacon & cheddar

* Breakfast burritos: eggs, sausage, cheese, and--if you'd like--sour creme and salsa

* Absolutely delicious homemade muffins

* Oatmeal available with raisins, brown sugar, and assorted toppings.

We also provide complimentary coffee, tea, milk or half 'n half, orange juice, and assorted snacks.

(After you book your reservation, please call or email us to let us know your estimated time of arrival as well as your breakfast choices for the following morning!)

There is a wide variety of attractions in the area. The Visitors Center for Old Economy Village is right across the street--walking and guided tours are available throughout most of year. Other cultural attractions range from the Andy Warhol Museum and Scaife Gallery in nearby Pittsburgh, to Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural masterpieces, Falling Water and Kentuck Knob, a few hours drive away (advance reservations required).

Sports lovers can watch the Steelers, Pirates, and Penguins play; and fans of the outdoors can hike the beautiful hills of Western PA.

Thank you! We had a great stay - the home was clean, and the bed was very comfortable! The breakfast in the morning made us feel at home! Great spot in Ambridge, close and convenient to get into Pittsburgh!

Debra and James' place was great! A short distance from Pittsburgh, clean, beautifully decorated. We'd definitely stay again.

We had an absolutely wonderful time staying here. It felt as if you were staying in a piece of history -- between the old fashioned layout and decor. There were wooden shutters on the interior of every window, a few small oil paintings, some historical ceramic pieces, a really cool antique hand mirror, as well as a range of really interesting past photographs of the house where you are staying and cool old postcards with pictures of local features from the town you are staying in - in it's early days. The kitchen was especially cozy and unique. There was one bed that was on the firmer side and another bigger bed that was softer. The pillows were some of the most comfortable I've ever felt and the old fashioned quilts that seemed thin were actually quite warm. The wooden floors were some of the most beautiful that I have ever seen. Another cool feature about the property was that the toilet and sink were in one room and the shower was in a different room by itself. Very nice towels. One of the setbacks was that there was no living room. The suite was also quite a drive from downtown pittsburgh and was situated at the corner of one of the main streets. The hosts were flexible with check-in and left us a tray of DELICIOUS home-made muffins even though they were going out of town that night. Thanks again! -Phil & Carlie

This is very quiet and comfortable apartment in an old river town. It is very convenient to airport and for exploring areas north of Pittsburgh . We enjoyed the delicious muffins Debra provided but our schedule did not permit having a full breakfast.

I love the simple architecture of the Harmonist Society and did my best to restore the Inn in keeping with their style. If you treasure old houses, I really think you will love staying at the Inn. Make sure to visit the Old Economy Village, a state historical site, right down Church Street.

We have also restored another Harmonist home about six blocks away from the Inn. This other building, which is also in the Old Economy Village historical district, is the new home for our catering business, the Old Economy Cafe. The Cafe opened in October, 2010, and it's where we prepare your breakfast and--upon special request--other meals for delivery to the Inn. Ask us about dinner options during your stay!
