Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We built this as our home in 2010. We have severe allergies to pets and smoke. No pets or smoking allowed ! This is our dream home and we enjoy sharing it with people that appreciate it as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Jim Thorpe, PA, USA:
Secluded, very private 17 acre mountain property with no other houses in view from our two large decks but still close to all summer and winter sports. Big Boulder and Jack Frost ski areas are just minutes away. Half hour drive to 100 store outlet mall. Swimming at Hickory Run State Park or Beltzville State Park or the indoor water park at Lake Harmony. Only 2 miles from white water rafting, scrimmage paint ball and mountain biking for summer fun. All mountain attractions nearby. Near the quaint town of Jim Thorpe with train rides and many tourist attractions. All this and still easy access from New York City and Philadelphia. Only 1 1/4 miles from Pennsylvania Turnpike exit and 10 miles from Interstate I-80 exit.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
Stocked pond with rainbow trout (catch and release) by the picnic area with two picnic tables, a gas grille, charcoal grille and a large fire pit, wood provided. There is a bridge over the waterfall near the hiking trails along the 1000 feet of flowing trout stream. Find the 3 secluded resting benches as you explore the rustic trails by the stream. See the tree that grows horizontal rather than vertical. Sit on the dock in the pond and enjoy an afternoon beverage or row the small rowboat around the pond. Or just relax and enjoy the view from one of the two 12 x 40 foot decks. Get away from the city and relax in the mountain air.
