Built on land originally owned by Captain William Tissue (of the Revolutionary Army) this 1940s brick warehouse was built on the rock foundation of the former Confluence Hotel that was on this spot form 1882-1941; it was built to be an auto dealership and garage with a 3200 sq ft home above. It feels like a french farmhouse mixed with a NYC loft that just happens to be on top of a warehouse, with picturesque views of the river, town, trees and mountains.
We are planning to open an espresso shop & store in the storefront of the building, and we will host an Artist Residency program (starting in winter 2020/21), that will fill our new 3,000 sq ft gallery with art. Also, our new 4,000 sq. ft maker space is up and running and ready to build art! Come join us!
Owners Suzanne and Pope, are both artists, and having a gallery & residency program has been a long time dream of theirs. They purchased the building in early 2019, and moved across country from Seattle to fulfill this dream in this lovely borough on the misty mountains of Appalachia.
Tissue Farm is a five minute bike ride (.8 of a mile) from the Great Allegheny Passage (GAP) Trail in Confluence, 26 minutes (15 miles) by car to Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater and 23 minutes (13 miles) to his later home, Kentuck Knob. Whitewater rafting, fly fishing, hiking, biking, and skiing are all very close by.
What our Guests are Saying
I know it will be great but I don’t know it’s actually super great . For Female traveling solo on a gab trail like me , I need safe ,clean,comfortable space after the long ride . Pope and Suzanne ‘s place ticks all the right boxes.
The room is very clean and actually I’m not bothered by the the train that run close to the property at night .I’m a very light sleep but I don’t need earplugs at all . The hosts however left them in the room if you want to use .
Great hosts with high hospitality on the very cute ,laidback town . You will so fall in love with them that you will have plan to go back already !

Such a great host! They have a great space and are very generous. Suzanne was quick with her responses and I had on overall wonderful stay!
This was the first time I've stayed in an Air BNB and I didn't know what to expect. I knew it was a room in someone's home, and I knew the area that it was in, as I usually camp down the road. The price was more reasonable than most chain hotels I've stayed in nearby and the cleanliness was impeccable. There is character and charm in the Tissue Farm. The room was cozy and warm, eclectic art adorns the walls, organic soap and toiletries are provided in the bathroom, and a tasty breakfast of oatmeal with fresh pears and coffee was provided in the morning, and the hosts Suzanne and Pope were really cool and hospitable.
They have a really cool vision of the future of the Tissue Farm which includes a coffee shop, art gallery, and maker space, as well as restoring a vintage RV trailer as another Air BNB room. I'm excited to stay at the Tissue Farm again on my next visit to the area!
