The Good Ol' Days House

Laugh, smile & giggle with friends & family as you explore a Blast to the Past with an overnight stay at America's First Nostalgic Guesthouse "The Good OL' Days House".

This Private House Rental located in Southwestern Pennsylvania was a home that was in my family for more than 60 years. It is a classic American Foursquare Home filled with everything that you remember from the 1950s, 60s, & 70s (except for old boyfriends + girlfriends)! This Nostalgic Guesthouse (America's First) revisits decades of the past and is a perfect place for overnight stays with family & friends for class reunions, family reunions, special birthday celebrations, anniversaries, College & High School graduations, retirements, and even Hunting Trips in the Fall! The trip back to the good ol' days is FREE!

This is a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom, 1960s living room, 1940s dining room, 1950s kitchen, rumpus room filled with pinball machines, record players, 8-track tape players, old board games, DVD of classic TV shows, memorabilia from decades past available for extended stays of 31 days or more.

When you stay here at my Retro vacation house rental, we promise not to give you this quiz.... Home Economics was a pretty important class back in the fifties.

And although quite a bit has changed when it comes to education, these questi

The Mon River Valley Magazine

Dear friends, fans, customers & clients of the Mon River Valley Magazine —as Americans begin to travel again, the upcoming issue of the 2020 Fall/Winter issue is being planned and will continue to include favorite spots, restaurants, attractions and local destinations in our 5 county region.

According to recent studies by tourism experts and Destination Analysts many travelers are feeling drawn to destinations they are familiar with rather than the lure of the unknown. Expectations about the virus’ course have dampened and nearly 70% will take at least one leisure trip this year. A majority of Americans who will be traveling in 2020 said they will avoid crowded destinations. This is great opportunity to put on our “best dress” and promote this region and highlight our little “off the beaten path” places & small towns along the Monongahela River.

I am looking for unique stories, fun activities, places to visit. itineraries and lists of what we have to offer in our little neck of the woods of SW PA in a marketing effort to get people to visit the region for day trips or overnight stays. If you have any ideas or suggestions of unique, delicious, places you have visited or experienced and would like to be considered for the Fall/Winter publication please contact me. 3,000 Magazines are distributed locally for free in the region and through the “PA on Display” Welcome Centers.

See you in the Mon Magazine for Fall/Winter 2020 issue🥰🇺🇸🥰

You can read the 2019 issue here and find a directory of local establishments in the 5 county region.

Especially on a hot summer day...

Letter to the editor: Disappointed in Wolf’s veto

As a small business owner, closed since mid March— here is my Letter to the Editor It is rather difficult for me to understand the outrage from the left about bringing Pennsylvania into line with the CDC and federal guidelines just like New York, which is the hardest hit state of them all, which is what Senate Bill 613 aimed to do.

Revisit your happy days and create new ones with family and friends inside this time machine house that takes you to decades past. This spacious former home of my grandparents since 1949 includes 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths will take you on a trip down memory lane as you open the front door and enter the foyer into the 1960s living room, 1940s dining room, and 1950s kitchen on the main floor; and a full rumpus room filled with pinball machines, record players, 8-track tape players, classic vintage board games & memorabilia along with a knotty pine bar and flat screen TV. It’s just like staying at Grandma’s house and the rotary phones work too.

The house opened in 2009 and has taken thousands of its guests on a blast to the past not seen anywhere in a vacation house rental in the USA -- or anywhere for that matter.
