Imagine leaving the hustle and bustle behind as you drive up to this lovely log home nestled in a private wooded setting. You feel the stress just melt away. It is a kind of rustic luxury that only exists in a true mountain retreat.
As you step through the front door you will experience lodge style architecture from the log walls and open living area to the cat walk that joins two loft bedrooms. There are four total bedrooms and three full baths including a large master suite that offers privacy and convenience. Grab a sweater and take your morning coffee out onto the large long front porch. Chances are you'll spot a deer or three and the fresh air will infuse your spirit and get you ready for the day.
While visiting, our guests have to concern themselves with only one thing: how to spend their time…
After much deliberation, we have chosen the name for our cabin… We would like to welcome you to our “Sleeping Bear Lodge.” We have been so inspired by the rich history of the Jim Thorpe region, from the Delaware Indians to the coal mining boom to the tale behind the current name of the town. And there is one story that really stood out for us…
In our quest for area information, we discovered that the town of Jim Thorpe was, until the mid-1950s, known as Mauch Chunk (pronounced “mock” Chunk). The name is derived from “bear mountain” in the language used by the Lenape people and it is in reference to a nearby mountain on the Lehigh River which they believed resembled a sleeping bear. We found out that the mountain itself is in fact called Bear Mountain. We just love the rich Native American history of the area and the romantic origin of Mauch Chunck. So we thought “Sleeping Bear Lodge” a fitting name. We hope that it inspires you to visit and discover more of the area's wonderful history first hand.
After almost a year of working on our cabin, we are happy to be sharing it with other vacationers. And we're getting great feedback! With it’s custom details, warm furnishings and loads of character and charm, we have tried to create the perfect vacation atmosphere for our guests to enjoy.
In the Spring and Summer, it’s just a short walk to the pool or to the lake for fishing and swimming, and our area is a perfect spot for riding bicycles. If you would like to enjoy longer hikes and scenic rides along the Lehigh Valley Gorge, head into quaint and historic downtown Jim Thorpe (sometimes called the Switzerland of America and just 10 minutes down the mountain). Here you will find charming boutiques, fabulous eateries, live music at the pubs and so much more. While you’re visiting make plans to take a historic train ride through some of the most beautiful scenery around. In addition to downtown, you will be close to top golfing and rafting destinations as well as music venues, vineyards, horseback riding and the Pocono Raceway.
Of course Winter activities abound in the area and many top skiing destinations are just a short drive from the cabin. Or put on your snowshoes and head out the front door. Whatever your interests, you will be delighted in what the Pocono region offers.
Whenever we tell people we have a vacation home here, their response is always “I just love Jim Thorpe!' We really believe you will too.
Steve & Marg,
We came from Lancaster, PA for a weekend away and really enjoyed the Sleeping Bear. We had a good bit of snow but still made it into town for Winterfest 2014!
Your place is beautiful! We most enjoyed the wood stove, the master bedroom suite, the catwalk and all of the hidden detail in your decorating.
Thank you for welcoming us into your home!
We have stayed in many VRBO properties and were fortunate enough to stay in this beautiful cabin in March! Here's what potential renters want to know: We entered an immaculately clean cabin that was better than the pictures. Obviously the owners take excellent care of their property with updates and thoughtful touches. It is comfortable and spacious and perfect for a family or small group (there were 6 of us). The three FULL bathrooms are a rare find in cabins. They are each spotless and updated. The wood-burning stove was FANTASTIC! Kept us toasty and serene. There's nothing like cuddling on the couch at night, lights out, watching the fire and bonding. The kitchen is well-equipped and spotless. We loved this cabin. Nikki is a dream to work with. Our entire experience was VRBO at its' best. Pleasant and effortless transaction. Gorgeous accomodations. Lightening fast return of deposit. Best...rental...ever.
This is the perfect location for our annual "cabin weekend"! Minutes from Jim Thorpe, but tucked away in the woods allowing for relaxing moments as well. This was our 2nd winter renting the Sleeping Bear Lodge, and we plan to return again.
From the initial booking with Nikki, to the minute I walked into the cabin I was nothing but impressed. The pictures don't do justice. The cabin has so much to offer; comfortable beds, all the utensils you could imagine ( even a pizza cutter!), heated bathroom floors on the main floor, and even some
Great games. We were sad to leave, but we will be back soon! Thanks to Nikki and the homeowners for a wonderful, relaxing weekend !
From the initial inquiry I was impressed. Nikki went above and beyond for our stay. The pictures of the cabin don't do justice. Very charming. Heated bathroom floors on the first floor were a present surprise in the morning. Loved the "runway" upstairs. House was fully equipped with EVERYTHING, including a wine opener, and a pizza cutter...who would have thought ?! Beds were super comfortable too! Wish we could have stayed longer, but we will be back ! Thanks to the homeowners and Nikki for making our weekend perfect !
A Thanksgiving snowstorm delayed our trip to Sleeping Bear,cabin, but it meant we were blessed with perfect Poconos weather, when we did arrive. The cabin, and surrounding woods, slept beneath a fluffy blanket of white. Inside we were cozy and warm thanks to the wonderful wood stove and comfy couches. We were inclined to napping ourselves! We so enjoyed our time in this lovely cabin!
The cabin was clean, welcoming, and beautifully decorated. We had all that we needed. We appreciated the attention to detail in this cabin. We had plenty of space for children and adults.
Nicky and the owners were a delight to work with. We are thankful for their willingness to share this cabin with us.
Our stay was perfect! Everything from our initial enquiries with Nikki to our weekend stay was handled professionally and exactly as promised. The home is in a beautiful location and is fully equipped with everything you would need to enjoy your weekend. There are local attractions very close and Jim Thorpe is a fantastic small town which you can spend plenty of time exploring. There are great restaurants and shops (and a winery) in town. There's a great train ride through the mountains and lots of outdoor activities to keep the family busy. The house itself is beautiful and spacious. On a rainy day you could happily spend the day in the house enjoying the games provided.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend the home!
So close to so many attractions. Just a few of our favorites include: Hickory Run State Park just 15 minutes away and provides wonderful hiking opportunities for all skill levels and is home to Boulder Field - a must see natural landscape of boulders created by glaciers during the Ice Age.
Penn's Peak and The Mauch Chunk Opera House are great venues for art & entertainment. Plan to catch a concert or a show during your trip or head up to Roadies Restaurant & Bar at Penn's Peak for dinner and a drink.
For the golf enthusiast, Jack Frost National Golf Club is just a short drive away and offers over 200 acres of breathtaking views and a course for all skill levels to enjoy.
We are in the Poconos, so of course there are many places the winter sports lover will enjoy. One great location is Big Boulder, part of the Jack Frost Resort area, which offers skiing, snowboarding & snow tubing.
Whitewater rafting as well as paintball fields are minutes away for those who prefer a more extreme style of vacationing. Or if you are looking for a little less excitement on your relaxing getaway, shopping and lunch are a must do in downtown Jim Thorpe!
And there is just so much more...
