Area Activities

Quill Haven Country Inn Bed and Breakfast is located one mile from the Pennsylvania Turnpike Exit 110 Somerset in the heart of the beautiful, scenic Laurel Highlands. We are within 5 to 45 minutes of such a wide range of activities and experiences that everyone is guaranteed to find something that interests them.

Fallingwater

Located 32 miles from Somerset, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater is a must see for all! With unique design and breathtaking views, Fallingwater was built on a waterfall on Bear Run in Mills Run. Make sure you book a reservation on their website https://fallingwater.org/ to ensure your tour time! Need more Wright in your life, make sure you check out his other masterpiece Kentuck Knob and Polymath Park (a unique mix of Wright and his proteges)!

Flight 93 Memorial

Located 18 miles from Quill Haven, the Flight 93 Memorial is a National Park located in the Shanksville/ Stoystown area. A very touching monument to the memory of the 40 passengers and crew of the Flight 93 who tragically lost their lives on September 11, 2001.

Mountain Playhouse

Located 10 miles from the B&B, the Mountain Playhouse is a wonderful source of entertainment! This is Pennsylvania’s oldest professional stock theater established in 1939. Keep an eye out on their productions that range from comedies, musicals, dramas and farces.

State Parks

With the closest park being under 9 miles away, there are so many options whether you have 30 minutes or a whole afternoon. Laurel Hill State Park and Kooser State Park host a lot of hiking trails, a swimming lake as well as an area to canoe and kayak. Make sure you check out the Jones Mills Run dam! Ohiopyle is about 32 miles from the B&B but you can make it a whole day trip with awesome views (pictured above), hiking trails, white water rafting and biking. Don’t fret, winter offers lots of cross country skiing opportunities – just bundle up!!

Quecreek Mine

Locate about 5 minutes from the B&B. In 2002, Somerset County was hit with another emotional event. On June 22nd 18 coal miners were digging close to an abandoned and poorly documented mine. The breach caused massive flooding in the two panels of the Quecreek mine. Fortunately, all 18 miners were able to escape but it took more than 77 hours to evacuate 9 of those miners -which sparked the phrase 9 for 9. Visit the museum and hear the amazing uplifting story of how a county and town came together.
