About Tissue Farm

Screen Shot 2019-06-04 at 8.11.38 AM

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've opened an espresso shop in the storefront of the building, and we will host an Artist Residency program (starting in winter 2022), 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

      This place is great. The beds are very comfortable. The only problem is that it is very loud at night with trains sounding their horns.

      There place was so well thought out - clean, welcoming, relaxing. It had everything we needed, and he even put out cups for us to have espresso in the morning. There were earbuds for us - just in case the trains were too loud (which they weren’t) - and glasses of water in case we got thirsty in the night. Honestly, they just did a great job and I’m very happy with my experience.

      Super cool place along the GAP Trail. Suzanne and Pope brought their West Coast style and sensibilities to the tiny, charming town of Confluence, PA. Stay here now before the secret is out and every Pittsburgh/DC traveler is rolling through!

      Tissue Farm is great! Really interesting space in a beautiful setting. My husband and I were headed to Fallingwater and it was a beautiful drive out from there in the morning.

      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 !
