You can not capture the Grand Canyon or the Drum Corp experience in pictures quite like you experience them in person. It is the same for the house and property on Chain Dam Road. The house is amazing and quirky with wooden staircase in the center of the home and rooms fanning out from mid, lower, and higher levels. We enjoyed using the pool table and guitar. We happened to have a guitar player in our party and it was easily tuned. The large picture windows everywhere were very Frank Lloyd Wright-esque, so we felt surrounded by the beauty of the outdoors constantly. The home was inviting, relaxing, and the rooms were large. No disappointments. The washer, dryer, plumbing, electric, and air worked very well. The yard was great for Frisbee throwing, exploring, bird watching, and seeing an occasional deer. The bike path along the road was conducive to walking or hiking. The dam was less than a mile away for viewing. We assigned breakfast, lunch, and snacks to family members and everyone had fun preparing meals to share. Eating together was great fun and convenient to do. The Wi-Fi and cable were easy to use and came in handy for us to preview some Drum Corp International entertainment before the shows: the main reason we were there. The DCI shows were in Allentown at the J. Birney Crum Stadium which was only a 30 minute drive away from the Chain Dam house. We were only 4.5 miles from anything we needed: i.e. Wal-mart, Sam's Club, Wegman's, other shopping, local dining, chain dining, and much more. Some of our more cautious family members brought their own linens: sheets and towels, but they found that it was not necessary to use them. Everything was clean. We also enjoyed sitting outside on the patio furniture, and we used the propane grill once for burgers and hot dogs. There were no major down sides to our experience, but since nothing is perfect here are a couple minor issues. Since we had never done anything like this before, we were a bit nervous that we never actually talked to anyone during the entire process. We felt like we were taking a major leap into the unknown. I like everything online and digital, but making the reservations and paying out the money from 3000 miles away was a bit unnerving. Yet, we kept going, and we are glad that we did. The only thing we wish the house had on hand was a 9 x 13 baking dish. We improvised fine. All other utensils were well stocked. Bottom floor musty. The consensus was: let's do it again!
