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.

About Michael Green

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

Why Michael Green chose Jim Thorpe

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.

Great little rental, thanks!

  • 5 of 5

Loved all the tips and helpful hints notes all over. House was fully stocked with everything we needed. (towels, bed sheets, kitchen supplies, etc). Less than 15 mins to Blue Mountain. Amazing deck area with incredible views. Used the included netflix and pandora accounts on the nice big tv and surround sound all weekend. Comfy beds and couch. Off street parking for 2 vehicles. Thanks for letting us use your great little house for a nice ski weekend in the Poconos!

Wonderful getaway from busy city life!

  • 5 of 5

6 friends stayed at this property during the thanksgiving break, and I would highly recommend it. It was a great getaway for all of us, and since we were there for a mini high school reunion, we had a blast. The best thing about the property was that it was immaculately clean and most toiletries and kitchen supplies are provided along with linens and towels. The highlight was also the beautiful deck overlooking the hill and mountain. Even though there was snow on the ground, we managed to cook up some burgers on the grill! The manager was very responsive via text and phone. If we had any issues he was able to resolve them quickly. And the picturesque town of Jim Thorpe is a short 20 minute drive away- it was so quaint!

Awesome vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage is super clean and perfect for a nice getaway with friends/family. As soon as we walked through the door, it truly felt like a second home. The Cottage came with pretty much everything we needed for a nice, relaxing Labor day weekend. The deck was a great selling point and did not disappoint. Last but not least, MIchael could not have been more pleasant or easier to work with. Thanks again for everything!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time for the great review! The Cottage is perfect for a small group to reconnect and enjoy some time together.. and the deck, as you pointed out, is the high point of the place that gives a place to have a great gathering, enjoy the view, and still be in the middle of everything! Thank you again and I hope you come back.. Michael

Great property...cant beat the value

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a hidden treasure. It is close to everything and the owner is great. He is very responsive and provides everything you need for a weekend get-away....the only thing you need to bring with you is cloths and food...everything else (and do mean everything you would need) is provided for you by the owner.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write! With The Cottage, I have tried to give a great travel experience in a small and affordable package.. I always set the house up personally for every guests arrival, checking all the little details to make sure all is in good order. As you said, I try to provide everything you would need so you don't have to drag all the small stuff that can be so inconvenient and expensive. Thank you again! Michael

Cozy cottage in Palmerton, PA

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in The Cottage for 3 days and we loved it. The home is clean and very well organized. The kitchen/dining area is very cozy and provided us with everything we needed. Most of all we loved the deck - the view is amazing and its such a perfect place to BBQ and relax with your friends and family. Great place to stay!
