Built on land originally owned and farmed by our namesake 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
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.
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!
Poe and Suzanne’s place was great for our brief visit to the area, too bad we couldn’t stay longer to see Fallingwater and other area attractions. We’ll have to come back, in which case we would definitely like to stay here again.
