A little slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5
I must admit that I had some reservations when I learned that the cabin was located directly adjacent to the owners' property - I took my girlfriend out for a weekend getaway and wanted privacy and seclusion - but my worries were quickly put to rest upon our arrival.

For starters, the cabin faces the Lehigh river and has its own private viewing area in front of the cabin for lounging and taking in the river. The embankment is a bit steep to access the river from the cabin, but the views and quietude are spectacular.

Both Josie and Andrew are very friendly and accommodating. The wood fireplace is a great touch and they offer free firewood which is a huge bonus! My one complaint would be that the wifi signal that reaches the cabin is sketchy at best, but as we wanted to get a bit "off the grid" I didn't particularly mind this limitation. Nevertheless, they could improve the signal if they wanted by purchasing a network extender to give adequate internet access to the cabin.

The cabin itself is cozy, yes, but is quite, well, yes the word for it is "charming," I believe. Hopefully you and yours will be generating your own warmth and good vibes should you visit, but the tasteful settings definitely don't hurt to set the mood!

Just far enough removed from "civilization" to not hear the traffic over the gentle running of the river, I was quite taken with the scene and found it nourishing to the soul. True to the title of this review, this was a little slice of heaven and I give this rental and the owners the highest marks for their wonderful little share!

Owner's Response: We're delighted that we could share our little piece of heaven with you.

With regard to the WIFI, we do have an extender but the interior walls of the cabin are exterior stucco and they absorb the signal which comes from our cottage. We have investigated installing a wireless router in the cabin but the electric pole which services our property is not on our property and our cable company is not authorized to run a wire under ground to do this.

We're glad that you brought this up in a review however, so guests who are counting on WIFI will know the situation.

Hope to see you again.

Awesome and truly unplugged relaxation

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful place to truly relax. Cabin is cozy and great for romantic anniversary get-away. Fireplace was great. Owner pleasant and unobtrusive. Internet access is limited (as specified) but that is a good thing. If you really need full access there is a dunkin donuts a couple miles away. Saw deer at the river in the morning. Will definitely return in summer if still available. Great experience.

Beautiful cabin!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for Valentines day weekend and had an amazing time! We live in manhattan and were looking for a romantic getaway that wasn't too far from home. I've rented houses in the Lake Harmony area multiple times for skiing/snowboarding, and the owners of this property were by far the nicest and most accommodating. It snowed throughout the entire weekend, and they shoveled the driveway and walkway multiple times so there was never a problem getting to and from the cabin. Josie and Andy were extremely helpful and made sure we were comfortable, even prior to our arrival by letting us know the driving conditions and what we would need. Upon arrival the cabin was stocked with the necessities (I.e. Toilet paper, garbage bags, paper towels, etc.), including even two fire starting logs and dry firewood for the fireplace- things that no other owners we have rented from have ever done! The cabin itself is incredibly clean, quant, and all-around beautiful. At first we were concerned about not having a TV, but it wound up making the whole experience more intimate and rustic. We brought board games and plenty of wine to keep us busy when we weren't snowboarding or skiing. My only suggestion for those staying at the cabin would be to make sure you bring board games and such, as the wifi and cell service inside the cabin was a bit spotty. Again, this actually made our stay even better because it truly was a weekend "away from it all". Also, you absolutely need a vehicle with all-wheel drive.

Thank you Josie and Andy for a beautiful weekend. We definitely plan to stay here again soon!

Owner's Response: We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay. Just wanted to make it clear for future guests that 4 wheel drive is not necessary May through October, and often not even in the winter months as we cinder the driveway when guests don't have 4 wheel drive vehicles. This winter saw the most snowfall in our area since records have been kept, and your visit saw 20 inches of snowfall.

Live-in fairytale

  • 5 of 5
A great place to stay and get away from the city. Met all our expectations and more. It's very cozy, romantic and peaceful. Perfect place to spend some quality time as a couple. Hope to start a new tradition and spend a weekend there once a year.

A perfect cabin for two!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I took a semi-close to home vacation. We live in NYC and just wanted a small getaway. The cabin is absolutely stunning. The aura and the scent of the cabin even was just so inviting. The couch and fireplace was quite cozy and the bed was extremely comfortable. We went out to eat a lot so we didn't really rely on the kitchenette or grill that much at all. The river view from the cabin is absolutely wonderful to wake up to. You can sit outside and have your coffee/tea and just watch the water.

Most attractions are pretty close by and I don't think we ever traveled more than 30 minutes to get anywhere (Crossings, Mount Airy, Jack Frost, etc).

The owners were absolutely lovely and made us feel right at home! When it snowed they took care of everything for us so we didn't have to worry about digging ourselves out at all. On our last day there I was even greeted by their adorable dog standing outside our door.

If you're looking for a place for some quiet alone time or with your significant other this is absolutely the perfect place. We do plan on going back to experience it in the warm weather as well.

Rustic romantic cabin!

  • 5 of 5
We had a short, but pleasant stay at the cabin this past week. It was just what we were looking for! The cabin was quaint, cozy and well-kept. The outdoor area facing the river is where we spent most of our time though. The fall colors and the river were enough to keep us entertained! The owners checked in with us by text to make sure we were enjoying our stay, and we definitely were!

I would definitely stay here again and will certainly recommend it to others looking for a quiet get-a-away.
