My sister and I were welcomed with open arms and hearts! The atmosphere was lovely,the rooms spotless, breakfast plentiful and Benedictine nuns so very kind. We were the only guests the weekend we stayed and were given run of the Robertshaw Country House, a restored home with beautiful grounds, library, sitting rooms and a den. Just perfect-thank you!

This is a very nice place for peace and prayer. They have flea market, retreats, dinner, and other social events. I would recommend this to anyone in need of reconnecting with the faith. All of the sisters are sweet and kind.

Everything is in order, and there is plenty of history available. The people are very kind and knowledgable, not to mention God fearing. You can only increase your aptitude by visiting this special location in Westmoreland County. A well of knowledge in so many different ways.
