"The house is exactly as the pictures showed! It is a beautiful home on the inside, with plenty of room for a party of 15 for multiple nights! The area has a lot of great hiking trails and water activities (swimming, rafting, etc.). The sunroom was a nice bonus, especially at night when the weather cooled down a bit. The hosts were extremely nice, always taking care to keep the guests' needs met. The only drawback was dealing with the gate, if it's not the main one. If you have a list of guests, make sure they go in through the main gate, otherwise they'll run into the issue of "not being on the list". Overall though, I wouldn't hesitate to come back and stay again!"

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!"

"I have to say, I have stayed at many other houses in this area and none even come close to how awesome this house it. A great location, beautiful house, wonderful owners, Tim and Heather, and wildlife visits everyday.
If you want to be close to it all, stay here. If you want a house that offers everything you could imagine, stay here. You want peace and quiet, a quick walk to the lake and beach, stay here. You want to read a book on the deck of this beautiful house, stay here. You want to have room for A LOT of people stay here. You will not be disappointed. Great views, great location, great owners. My family and I would consider staying here again over any other place."
