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, but it 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, 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.
The Owner's, 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
Had a great visit and stay with Suzanne and Pope! Place is adorable and had a nice cozy bed. Location was great for my mom and I since we had tickets to Falling Waters and Kentuck Knob in the morning.
Our stay was wonderful! The space is beautiful and Pope shared the history of the place with us - which was fascinating. The space was exactly as described, and there were many wonderful amenities throughout the home. We would definitely recommend staying here, and will happily stay here again!
Very nice stay! The town was small and cozy, with nice views all within a short walk. Great hospitality.
First off, Pope and Suzanne are wonderfully responsive. Pope and Suzanne’s Tissue Farm building, site and location are historically impressive and well situated for hiking, bike touring, and kayaking among other activities. The Tissue Farm is wonderfully clean and tidy with great common space to read or let your mind wander. Given Pope and Suzanne’s creative energy, I would happily stay in Confluence, PA again and Tissue Farm would be top of my list.
We loved staying at Suzanne and Pope's place. It's in the perfect location for everything we wanted to do during our trip. The bed was incredibly comfy, the sun room was perfect, and having morning coffee was so convenient, not to mention delicious! Suzanne, Pope, and Giovanni were wonderful hosts. We will definitely say with them again when we are in the area!
