Perfect getaway for everyone; creativity surrounds
"WOW! We were dazzled from the first minute to the last... Joan and Victor met us in the courtyard with 2 locally made, cold craft beers and a lively chat. Super inviting and both creative forces... As ex New Yorkers, it was exciting to be surrounded by all that energy-- The Unique stone 'wire factory' building with creative endeavors at every turn. The loft area allowed this family of 5 (3 lumbering teenage boys) to spread out, play cards, watch videos, cook, read and catch up on sleep. Terrific shower and tub. Laundry in suite was nice after we were soaked from rafting! Then there is the beautifully nostalgic FLOW restaurant with the river underfoot and delightful courtyard with stone walls (& polished bowling balls!) for sharing take out food and a bottle of wine. Victor's paintings, font collection and gallery is hauntingly sentimental, beautiful, colorful and interesting. Pianos abound which my son enjoyed (and we did too!). Joan and Victor are inviting, welcoming, accessible and exceptional hosts. The town of Jim Thorpe/Mauch Chunk is full of wonderful American Industrialist history, and breathtakingly beautiful vistas. Good places for breakfast or coffees, quick take out and of course loads of outdoorsy things to do. An easy 2 hour ride to NYC for the day (which we did). Don't miss the wonderful Italian food up and over the hill in Lehighton called SAPORE (pink sauce recommended!)... We played cards to the wee hours, we rafted, we chatted, our phones were put away (although WIFI is there and easy to use for quick check ins to the rest of the world). highly recommended for a family, girls or guys weekend, WEDDINGS, parties, couples getaway... 5 Stars hands down...Just what this family needed!"

"What a charming cottage! Do not be fooled by the exterior. It looks small, but when you tour the house, WOW! Plenty of room for our party of 9 adults and 6 children. The eldest children had a blast sharing the rooms with the twin beds and all of the adults had plenty of room. There was even a crib and a pack n play in one of the closets. Every room had an air conditioner, and there were plenty of bathrooms for everyone. We had plenty of room to sit around in the living room, and in the screened in porch. Although the kitchen is small, since it is Summer, we didn't mind. Most of the cooking was done outside.
Having Skytop Lodge so close by was a big plus for the kids, as they had a great time in the indoor and outdoor pool. Most of the adults spent half a day at the Adventure Center .... (warning - NOT for the faint of heart! But a GREAT time) Thank you for the use of your cottage. We loved it!"

"When we arrived the house was in immaculate condition, there was more than enough room for everyone. The game room in the basement was a huge plus....normally when you have a pool table/ping pong table combo you expect a lower quality version of both, but this was an exception to the rule. Also being able to hook up an iphone to the speaker system in the house was great!
I was a little intimidated by the rules and regulations of the neighborhood and was worried that we would have a hard time operating within them, but it was much easier than expected. We had 18 guys staying in the house for 3 nights and did not have one complaint, in fact a gentleman in his 70's in the house next door hung out with us for a few hours while we played "KanJam" in the backyard. The house is a very short walk to a beach and beach volleyball court, both of which we used. I would definitely recommend staying here if you have the chance."
