Stay Here For a Million-Dollar View

Feel like a millionaire for the weekend while staying in this Mt. Washington apartment, complete with an unobstructed view of the Pittsburgh skyline. The one-bedroom, one-bathroom space features an outdoor deck where you can take in the scenery — before or after you explore the local scene on nearby Shiloh Street. Be sure to take an incline into the city; even if you’re a local, it’s a ride that never gets old.

Stay Here for a Romantic Weekend Away
This renovated apartment in Deutschtown looks like it belongs on the set of a movie where two people fall in love — and it only fits two people, so it’s perfect for a romantic weekend getaway. The one-bedroom, one-bathroom, industrial-vintage space is located only minutes away from Downtown. Take a soak in the clawfoot tub, relax under the chandelier and then walk or bike through the neighborhood and all the others nearby.

 

Stay Here to Explore the East End
Have an appointment in Shadyside? A college visit in Oakland? A party in East Liberty, Bloomfield or Squirrel Hill? This historic townhouse — located in Shadyside and dating to 1929 — is centrally located to these Pittsburgh neighborhoods. It is fully updated with parking on the premises and can fit two guests with one bathroom, one bedroom, a full kitchen and a laundry room. Peruse the art (and dinosaurs) at the Carnegie Museums or see (and sniff) the newest flower show at Phipps Conservatory; these landmarks and many more are within walking distance.

 

Stay Here After a Show
While Downtown once shut down at 5 p.m., it has become a hub of culture and local dining. This one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment in the Cultural District is a great spot to stay while you immerse yourself in everything Downtown has to offer — including art galleries, historic architecture, musicals and plays and restaurants. With 100-year-old exposed brick and timber beams, the apartment is full of historic charm and features an outstanding view of the Andy Warhol bridge. 

 

Stay Here If You Can’t Leave Your Fur Kid Behind
If you can’t bear the thought of a weekend away from your furry friend, this spot on the South Side will suit. The pet-friendly, eclectic space is housed in a converted gas station; it features a loft bedroom, a patio with an outdoor fireplace, a glass wall that can open to the outdoors and a one-car driveway. It can fit two guests — not including your pooch or cat — with one bedroom, one bathroom and a full kitchen. It’s the perfect spot for a weekend in; you can also explore the South Side’s many bars, restaurants and shops.

 

Stay Here if You Hate Looking for Parking
Located on the North Side near Allegheny Commons Park, this home includes free parking on site — a rarity in a neighborhood filled with row homes. The light and airy space is a former electric shop that can fit up to four guests; it offers a washer and dryer, a full kitchen and outdoor space. Stroll through the neighborhood and check out the historic homes — or use this spot as a launching pad for an event at Heinz Field or PNC Park, both less than a mile away.

 

Stay Here if You Love Pop Art
The king of pop art was born and raised in Pittsburgh, and Andy Warhol almost certainly would have enjoyed this home in Lawrenceville — it’s filled to the brim with pops of color and pop-art pieces. Eight guests can stay, and while it’s located on a private residential street, it’s close to the coffee shops, stores and bars of Lawrenceville. With three bedrooms and a full kitchen, this purple pop-art palace is the perfect starting place for larger groups of people to explore Butler Street and beyond.
