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...

Michael Green purchased this house in 2005

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.

CUTE PLACE IN PALMERTON

  • 5 of 5
The place was really cute. Perfect for what we were looking for. The place was clean and well maintained. Michael was incredibly nice, flexible, and understanding. He really went out of his way to make this vacation work, which was really difficult. It was my sister's bachelorette party and she ended up in the hospital the week we were supposed to leave and he was working with me throughout the week to figure out any and all possible alternate solutions. The place is pretty much exactly how it looks in the pictures. We weren't able to do much. But, we were an hour away from our zip lining place, and 30 minutes from our white water rafting place. 10 minutes from a movie theater. 2 minutes from the town. The only thing I would say as a POSSIBLE negative was that the kitchen is not conducive to someone who gets really into their cooking (like me). If you're not trying to chef out, then it's perfectly up to the task. But because we had to cancel all of our activities, I decided to cook a dinner for 6 people, which was difficult. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives, and we all are trying to come back and have the weekend we originally planned for. Thank you Michael!

Owner's Response: Thank you Jasmine for the good words... and yes I agree that while the kitchen is fully equipped, it is not really set up to cook gourmet meals for a group.. it is more set up for quick meals between activities... But I am glad it all worked out and it also was a great pleasure to work with you on your trip... I hope you come back! Michael

BEAUTIFUL PLACE. VERY NICE AND HOMEY.

  • 5 of 5
very nice. Had everything a group of college kids could ever need. Ski mountain was 10 mins away. Right next to the town. Was a blast. Spent a week there and would recommend it to anyone that wants a affordable nice place to stay.The pictures do not do it justice. It looks better in person than the pictures.

SURPRISINGLY SECLUDED, COZY AND UPSCALE!

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was very clean, comfortable and stocked with all the kitchen items needed to make several meals there. Although it's in a Palmerton neighborhood and on a main street, it was suprisingly quiet (very) at night and the location is actually very private due to the way the cottage is situated, especially the amazing deck and walking paths--with georgious views. We took advantage of the Pandora and Netflix options and enjoyed the home theater set-up for a great listening experience as well.
The decorations are tasteful/upscale and we would highly recommend this cottage for a weekend getaway close enough to Jim Thorpe and other activities in the area.

COTTAGE IN PALMERTON PA

  • 4 of 5
The little house we rented was in perfect order; thoughtfully outfitted,spotlessly clean, and every little thing we could have had a question about was spelled out for us. We thoroughly enjoyed being there. We especially enjoyed the private deck, complete with grill and bar. The owner is fair, friendly, and available. We hope to go back another time.
