About The Owner

We have a romantic history with Jim Thorpe. Family of ours owned hotels and a bottling company during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. As sometimes happens, the accountant ran away with all the money, so we just get to look at our lost inheritance and think about what might have been.

Jim Thorpe was the first place we vacationed together as a couple and was the site of our wedding ceremony on a gorgeous May day. It's a place where our family toiled in the mines and in the sewing factory and raised their kids. It’s where every street had a bar and a church and people you dated had to live within walking distance.

Now, Jim Thorpe is about artists, adventure and the art of dining, all of which we believe in and support. We can mountain bike, hike or antique and then dine on American cuisine or attend the strawberry festival at a local church. We like it all.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2010

Why The Owner chose Lehighton

Life in the big city is a noisy adventure, and we craved a bit of solace. It was the mountains that always beckoned, not the shore. Within an hour's drive, we are happily parked in front of our home, feeling miles away from the bustling life we left behind. We enjoy the secluded feel to the place, while knowing that we are just a few minutes away from grocery stores, dining, drive-in movies, hiking, and dozens of other activities.

What makes this cottage unique

Star-gazing while sitting on our back porch, after a meal made of ingredients supplied by local farm stands cannot be beat.

Driving 10 minutes to Beltzville Lake and having to choose between a dozen or so amazing hikes is a delight.

Running down country roads past horse farms and seeing the woods in their fall glory is beyond words.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We would be happy to write a review. We were very impressed with the decor in the cottage. We felt at home with the artwork on the walls and the the kitchen amenities. It was nice not to sacrifice quality appliances just because we wanted to get away for the weekend. The technology inside the cottage was perfect. This usually isn't even a category I would talk about because it normally doesn't exist in vacation homes. The directions [to use the technology] were clear and great for a rainy weekend. The wifi was also a must to keep in touch with the kids. Thank you so much.

Family Time

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, my sister and brother-in-law spent 3 nights at The White Rabbit Cottage. My father lives in the Palmerton area and we travel there two times a year. The cottage was a great spot for our family visit! We love to be outside so a lot of our time was spent on the deck enjoying the view of the woods. We used the well-equipped, clean kitchen to prepare meals. Giant grocery store was an easy drive and a great place to pick up everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms clean. The bedrooms are situated on opposite sides of the living area so for 2 couples it allowed for each of us to have good space. Charlie was so nice to work with from beginning to end. I have used VRBO on several trips and he is, by far, the best on good communication throughout the rental process. We would definitely love to return to the cottage again!

Perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from our stay at White Rabbit Cottage. It really was a gem in the woods. Charles, the owner, gave us SO many ideas of what to do. My husband and I took our granddaughter to the lake and then the Country Junction General Store...A huge hit...Thanks Charles for that suggestion. My daughter and son in law went looking for antiques and my other daughter and son in law just hung out at the cottage. We played cards every night and just had some great family time. We will have to come again because there were just too many things to do. We would recommend it to our family and friends. Everything was just as imagined or more. The owners could not have been more helpful. You will want to definetely consider this place if you are looking for a relaxing get away. Plenty of space for our family of 7. Oh, my granddaughter loved all the bunnies. She went around counting then all weekend!

An amazing value for a cozy and comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5
We very much enjoyed our stay at White Rabbit Cottage. While not a large house--the bedrooms are relatively small--but the living room is quite spacious with a cathedral ceiling. I was very impressed with the quality of the ceiling fans in all the rooms (there is no a/c, but you don't need it at all). For entertainment, there was a nice sounding radio with an aux jack for your mp3 player and a flat screen tv with dvd player and Netflix access. Cable was limited, but who needed it with all of the other options.
The house came spotlessly clean, especially the modern bathrooms, and there is interesting artwork and books throughout. The kitchen is big, with plenty of counter space, and is well-stocked with dishes, cutlery, cookware, utensils (though I wish I had found the peeler sooner) and spices. We especially enjoyed sitting in the comfortable chairs out on the back deck and having breakfast.
The house is nestled in a wooded lot in a quiet neighborhood. It's about a 10 minute drive into Jim Thorpe proper, and lots of other attractions (you must see the boulderfield) are within reasonable driving distance. Too many rabbits to count live in the cottage, but our favorite was the Momiji bunny on the mantle.
Charlie was a great host. He was very responsive throughout the process, left a bottle of wine as a welcoming gift, and even called our first evening to make sure everything was OK and to offer further tips on what to do and where to eat.
We would recommend White Rabbit Cottage wholeheartedly on the merits of the accommodation itself, but even more so because it has to be the best value in the area.

Even better than expected

  • 5 of 5
We returned home yesterday and would love to stay at White Rabbit Cottage again. Charlie was communicative and helpful. He provided a list of things to do, places to eat and places to buy supplies. The property is spotless and the ecletic décor is even more appealing than in the photos. We only used the XM radio, but it appeared that electronics and instructions were plentiful. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils, cookware, tableware, spices and condiments. The rear deck is very peaceful; that is where we spent our evenings. On the deck there is a table and 6 chairs. We brought with us two zero gravity lounge chairs and made use of them on the deck - bliss! Can't speak for all of the bedrooms, but the master bedroom mattress felt top notch and I'm very particular about that. This rental was a positive experience from inquiry up to departure.

Still awesome!

This was the second time I stayed at this wonderful house and definitely not the last. The house is extremely well kept, clean and decorated with love. The owners are a pleasure to work with. They are extremely accommodating and helpful. Prior to arrival Charlie provided a list of things to do in the area which proved to be very helpful. I highly recommend this property!
