Located in Palmerton, a Mayberryish town of 5000 people about a 15 minute ride from both Jim Thorpe and Blue Mountain Ski Area. Offering comfortable sleeping for 6, this house has the same amenities as our two other more upscale homes but at a much lower price. A fully equipped kitchen, off street parking for 2 cars, and a private deck with an amazing view of the Blue Mountains and Appalachian Trail... The deck and landscaping in the rear of the house has a taste of Latin America, with various elevations, and great lighting, a gas grill, shade, and plenty of seating.. simply put you couldn't ask for more in an outdoor entertainment area. Inside, you will find all your linens, Fully Equipped Kitchen, WIFI internet, washer and dryer, a 47' flat screen with FREE streaming Netflix dedicated to the house, and much more. This property should appeal to those travelers on a tighter budget who want a place to reconnect with friends, have a deck party, play some music, and basically have a good time while still being an easy drive from all the action in the Lehigh Valley, including Jim Thorpe and Blue Mountain Ski Area.

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 Palmerton, PA, USA:
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.
