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 two apartments above. The apartments were renovated into one 3200 sq ft home in the 1990s by a previous owner and 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.
In the Spring of 2020, 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. We are also on planning a 4,000 sq. ft maker space to come online in the summer of 2021.
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
Pope and Suzanne were great host and so was their little Giovanni! We enjoyed our stay and their hospitality very much. Great place, great vibe and great people!
Suzanne and Pope were wonderful hosts. Their initiative in Confluence is admirable and we are excited to return and watch it grow. Lest I forget to mention the outdoor recreation—there is a lot of it between Ohiopyle and Fallingwater, but it’s even a treat just to sit and take in the rivers right in town. Comfortable bed and serene atmosphere. This stay has small town purity inside a culturally rich home.
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!
A one of a kind space in a one of a kind place!
It is exactly as advertised and so much more because the hosts are so welcoming. As they continue to develop the building, it will no doubt get even more wonderful. We sincerely hope/plan to come back.
Thanks for the coffee this morning. It gave us just the fuel we needed to negotiate the beautiful and serpentine mountain roads.
