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!"

"This house is awesome! It has comfy furniture not your average rental furniture. It had more then ample hot water supply for four women's showers. The view of the lake is beautiful, we were fortunate enough to be there for the fall foliage. We had a fire on the private beach and while we were setting there three deer came up about twenty feet away to take a drink from the lake! There were plenty of activities to fill our long weekend. It was peaceful setting on the deck after a full day. . The shops in town are very affordable, a lovely town to stroll through. The residents were so friendly. Penns Peak Resteraunt had delicious home made potato chips. My only complaint would be that we had to leave to go back to the real world."
