Business at this Pennsylvania inn is diverse. Bed & breakfast lodging has been the core business at the Inne at Watson’s Choice, welcoming couples, families, singles and groups for getaways, vacations, and family events. Important Laurel Highlands attractions are within ½ hour of the inn. This is Frank Lloyd Wright Country. Wright’s masterworks Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob are nearby major attractions of international renown.
There are five main buildings, two guest cottages and several other outbuildings on the property. The historic Inne houses 7 guest rooms, multiple guest sitting rooms, 24-seat dining room and the inn’s kitchen. A wide, deep porch wraps around the Inne. The Harvest House, built in 2001, houses 5 guest rooms, a guest living room and a guest pantry plus a commercially equipped laundry room. Guest rooms range in size and features. Several have fireplaces and spa tubs. Between the buildings is a broad landscaped courtyard with outdoor seating. A stone wall fire pit, three-season summer house and furnished lean-to encourage outdoor relaxation and stargazing. Two rustic, self-sufficient cottages, accommodate both extended-stay and B&B guests and offer privacy and sunrise views. Each lodging building has convenient parking.
The inn’s event center has excellent infrastructure, capacity, and atmosphere. The Barn and Stable are two historic buildings combined with a large catering kitchen to create a spacious, multi-use facility with seating for up to 200 guests. The Stable features 60 feet of windows with meadow views. The restored Barn is a breathtakingly beautiful 2-story space. Covered walkways join these buildings into a single venue. A new parking lot, surrounded by stone walls, accommodates up to 120 cars.
The owner’s home is an important selling feature of the inn. The stately three bedroom house was built in 1900 and has two bathrooms, a kitchen, a dining room, a formal living room, a family room, a laundry room and an enclosed porch. The home boasts high ceilings, original stained glass, and a grand front hall staircase. The home is comfortably separated from the inn by a fence and hedgerow.
Weddings and special events are a more recent addition to the business. Close proximity to Pittsburgh gives the event business enormous potential. Catering is currently provided by outside vendors. In-house catering and/or a restaurant are opportunities for new owners – zoning allows expansion in many directions.
