CANCELLATIONS FOR FULL HOUSE RENTALS: When a guest makes a reservation for a stay at Paddler’s Lane Retreat we agree to turn away all other requests for the unit you select and you agree to pay the rate quoted for the number of days you reserve it. A 50%deposit will be charged to the credit card provided at the time you make your reservation. Because of our size and location, cancellations affect us significantly. Additionally, when you book a full house rental we are blocking a very significant portion of our resources for your use, often for months in advance during which time we turn away all other inquiries and possible bookings. When you make your reservation you become responsible for the entire amount of your stay. We are unable to offer a refund of your deposit and you will be charged for the remaining amount due on your arrival date. However, if you cancel and we are able to rebook your dates, (give us as much notification as you can!) we will deduct the amount of the new reservation from the amount you are responsible for.
CLEANING CHARGES; When you check into Paddler’s Lane for your house or chalet rental you can expect a well-appointed, immaculately clean and neat house. Normal cleaning charges are included in our prices. Upon departure we expect you leave the house tidy and clean and in broom swept condition. All furniture should be in its original position. Used linens may be left on the beds and in the bath. However all garbage should be taken out to the garbage corral, the kitchen should be clean and all dishes washed and put away. The microwave, refrigerator, stove, oven and grill should also be clean and in their original condition. If you prefer to leave these and have us clean them for you, we will be happy to do so at a charge of $25 each. In our experience it is quite rare that we must do so, but Extra cleaning charges may apply for any extra-ordinary messes left behind after your departure. To avoid stains and extra charges, we ask that you keep all food and beverages in the kitchen, dining or deck areas
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR PADDLER’S LANE RETREAT
Paddler's Lane does have cell service. Verizon has a tower and very good reception and AT&T has a tower which has recently become operational. Other carriers generally have decent reception via the Verizon tower.
Confluence is a very small town, about 400 people, so it doesn’t have big town amenities. It does have a gas station, car repair garage, bank, post office, cycle shop, river outfitter, grocery store, pharmacy, vegetable market, day spa, hardware store, churches, a dollar general and other small town amenities. It has several restaurants and cafés. If you visit during the off season several of these dining establishments will have limited hours or will be closed so during this time you may want to consider cooking in, going farther afield or opt for the limited selection in town. From April through October Lucky Dog Cafe is an excellent local choice, as is River’s Edge Cafe.
All in all you should be able to get any of the basics that you need here. If you find yourself in need of anything of a more exotic nature Somerset is approximately 35 minutes away on 281 North and Uniontown is reached in half an hour or so by taking 281 South to 40 West .
Typical of many of the world’s rivers, the Youghiogheny is joined for much of its length by a set of train tracks. The train is a part of life on the river and should be thought of as such. It should not hinder your enjoyment of your surroundings. Our guests don't feel that the trains are detrimental to their overall experience. (A significant number of them join us because they are intrigued by the train!) We think that you will agree. Children are especially fond of the train.
We are located on a very rural private road. The constant drone of traffic or the roar of semis blowing by which is endemic for most locations will not be a part of your day. Instead you will have the constant movement of the river in your back yard, the rooster voicing his wake-up call, the whistle and rumble of a passing train, and the wind finding its way through the trees. In the summer months humming birds add to the noise and the drone of cicadas is often a companion during the later summer months. .
Some of the amenities that you will find in the house are these: central heat and air conditioning, a fully equipped kitchen with appliances large and small, including a dishwasher. All of your linens and towels are supplied. Free Wi-fi is included. Board games are stored in the entertainment center. You will also find a large fieldstone fireplace, and in addition, there is a fire pit located behind each house and another beside the river. You will also have expansive decks and an outdoor grill (Don’t forget to bring your charcoal!) and plenty of room for parking and gear storage

Innkeeper and Potter with a passion for kayaking, hiking and sushi. I love travel but prefer to do it "unscripted" and on the seat of a bike.
