                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About the owner: A building contractor for most of my adult life, I now find myself semi-retired and able to enjoy some travel and freedom. My vacation rental business fits perfectly into my lifestyle, because it puts me in contact with others who like to explore new places and have the resources of time and money to follow through.. I also know from my travels what it is like to get to a destination and to have your pre-arranged accommodations wind up being a catastrophe... so my vacation rentals, while all being very different in personality and amenities, all provide a great value and are exactly as advertised...

                          Why the Owner Chose Jim Thorpe:
                          While renting my other property in the Borough of Jim Thorpe which is very much upscale, I realized that the area needed a property that was more suitable to a younger traveler or someone looking for more than a hotel, but not a full blown vacation rental. Something furnished in a simpler style, with a great outdoor entertainment area, and where the energy of a younger crowd would not be an issue.. this property fulfills all that and more, while still being central to all the activities in the Lehigh Valley area.
