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 location, all provide a great value and are exactly as advertised...

Michael Green purchased this house in 1946

My father built the original house in 1947, and I bought it from my mother about 10 years ago as my primary residence when I move to Pennsylvania from Annapolis, Maryland after a long stint in the construction business there. I love this house with all my heart, and I have made major changes throughout the years, both outside and in. In the pictures you can see the huge addition that I built which contains my wood shop and below that a garage. However I was bitten by the travel bug a few years ago and so it seemed a better idea to rent the house to others who may also enjoy the incredible vibe the place has to offer.. so I get the best of both worlds.. when the house is not occupied I still get use of it, and I also get to share my love for the place with others. Now it all makes sense.

Where to begin? Where can you find a house with so much charm, surrounded by 9 acres of privately owned nature, with not just one but two spring fed mountain streams within a stones throw of the house, and yet still just 5 minutes outside of the quaint town of Palmerton where you can get every service you need for your time away. Add to this a fire pit which is only 25 feet from the stream, a nature trail, a huge wrap around porch with a Vermont Castings Grill.. this house would be impossible to duplicate in todays market.

Fabulous Poconos Rental

  • 5 of 5
This was our first visit to the Poconos and wow did we have fun! In searching for a place to stay my eye was caught by 'The Homestead' and boy did this property deliver, Everything listed in the property description was exactly as described. We loved that we could enter through the garage, where we could safely store our mountain bikes and in the winter would be a perfect place to leave skis and snowboards. The mud room, accessible via the garage, also has plenty of hanging space for wet clothes after a day of snow play. The washer and dryer are also right there for use.

The Homestead is fastidiously clean and well organized! I felt like I could immediately start preparing a meal for my family without a quick cleaning first. There is plenty of seating in the dining room or out on the front porch. We also barbequed and took our food to the fire pit. Our teenage sons felt the need to build a fire every night and there was plenty of kindling and wood available. The living room has a great comfortable very large U-shaped sectional couch. We were able to keep up on our Netflix (provided as part of the rental). The sleeping arrangements were fantastic! Our family used three of the beds and the mattresses were the best we've ever slept on in any rental home or hotel room.

The property is beautiful. We had a great time hiking around and through the stream that runs through the property. We felt like we were all alone way out in the woods on our own little piece of mountain paradise!

The property owner, Michael, was accessible at all times and checked in on us to make sure all was well and if we had any questions or concerns.

In short, our Poconos vacation was fabulous! We hiked, biked and went white water rafting and were able to come back to The Homestead every afternoon to hang out. Everything was perfect! We will be back soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review! You and your family really got the most out of your stay at The Homestead.. and I also really enjoy that you saw the potential for an excellent winter stay during ski season. I personally set up each house for every guest.. turning on lights, making final arrangements, making sure the place is completely organized for arrival. My homes are not set up as typical vacation rentals.. bare bones, minimum equipment, etc. I set them up as if I were going to live there, and I always put myself in the place of my guests, trying to anticipate their needs so that their time at my homes is fun and productive. Thank you again for the wonderful review! Michael

Beautiful country house

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the house for one week, and totally loved it. It was clean, well-maintained, and tastefully decorated. All the appliances were new and modern, and grounds were also pretty with flowers blooming everywhere. My 5-year-old loved running around the lawn (we are city-folks with no back yard,) and was thrilled to encounter crayfish by the stream. We enjoyed dining on the porch all the time except when it was pouring. There were lots of things to play in and out of the house for him, and it was truly relaxing vacation. Micheal the owner is sweet and helpful, and so are many people in the area. We'd love to visit again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you Etsko.. your review captured the essence of the house and the vibe I am trying to provide there... I think that Summertime there is absolutely spectacular with the flowers in bloom and the sound of the streams for background.. for anyone who lives in the city and wants to get away and recharge their batteries, this property certainly will deliver!

Beautiful setting, well-kept home, great location!

  • 5 of 5
Michael (the owner) was wonderful throughout our stay - confirming reservation/plans, preparing for our arrival, promptly responding to email inquiries. The home was everything we wanted and more. It's set in a wooded neighborhood and on a sizable property with a creek running through the front/back yard. We spent as much time as we could just lounging on the front porch observing the tranquil surrounds. The home itself was very well-maintained with a spacious kitchen furnished with every cooking need we encountered. Bedrooms were comfortable, nicely lit, and decorated exactly as a home-owner might keep them. My wife thought the bed was a little too soft but I slept fine. We traveled with two children (2y, 2m), and the home was fairly well equipped with a high chair, pack-and-play, and lots of outdoor toys. The main stairs don't have child guards, which required a little extra vigilance to ensure our son's safety. Still, he loved it, we loved it, and we're already planning our next trip back!

Some things we really enjoyed: Palmerton's main park playground, large pool, local ice cream shop (Claude's), and breakfast at Bert's; Blueberry picking at Spring Mountain Farm (on 209 near airport); watching airport activity on Saturday morning; railroad @ Jim Thorpe; Mauch Chunk Lake Park beach. We stayed at Michael's in the summer but I imagine any time of year would be wonderful.

If there's availability here, book it now! You won't be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Thank you Tim! When I decided to downsize my life and turn my personal home in the country into a vacation rental, I envisioned exactly this type of stay.. a family enjoying the ambience of the property and making short trips to enjoy all the beauty and fun the area has to offer. It was heartwarming for me when I read your words about your time there. I also need to put the blueberry picking on my "local activities" page.. I hope you come back.. and I will get a child gate on that upper set of stairs! Michael

Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay at the Homestead! The owner thought of everything so the trip was effortless for us. The property is well cared for and the house is extremely clean. There was more than enough room for the 8 of us and we are looking forward to another mountain weekend at the Homestead next year!
