Quaint cottage within walking distance of everything!
"We had a lovely stay at the Van Pelt House for our 29th anniversary. It was wonderful that we could bring our dog and Helen was very helpful when we arrived. All the shops and restaurants in Jim Thorpe are within walking distance. We would definitely stay here again. Two notes I would make for future renters: 1) It is a steep hill or a steep set of stairs to walk to town from the house and 2) the claw foot tub does require you to climb into it. Having said that, this was not an issue for us but could be for someone else."

"Wow! This place was fantastic. Our group had such a great time during our stay. We had a group of 6 go for an extended weekend and everyone raved about the house. There was so much room for everyone to spread out and not be on top of each other - we could have easily fit an additional 4-5 people comfortably. The screened in porch was fantastic. It rained half the time we were there, but we didn't mind - we were able to enjoy being outside with the screened in porch. The view was beautiful and the yard was well maintained. The extra fridge in the garage was perfect to keep our beer and soda in while we kept real food in the main fridge. Michael was a pleasure to work with as well - he responded quickly to all of our questions we had. Once we got there, he was so friendly and explained how everything worked. The pictures provided simply do not do it justice - it's so much bigger and nicer than the pictures show. Everybody agreed that they would come back and we're already planning on coming back next year. Thanks again!"

"There were 4 of us, all adults, staying at Nan's place for the weekend. Nan was very accommodating and allowed us to check in early and stay late on Sunday. It was nice not to have to rush to get up and get out. The beds were comfortable however for a cottage that is advertised to sleep 6, there was not adequate couch space. As a group of 4, we were a tad uncomfortable squeezing on the couch (loveseat really) and one chair. Other than that one thing, we would defiantly return and recommend Nan's place! We loved the seclusion and the deer! It was perfect distance to many tree farms and we all had a relaxing weekend. Thanks Nan for the cabin! We hope to see you again next year!"
