Sisters, Debbie Bridgman and Robin Masker grew up in this area. We both graduated from the Lehighton Area School District and moved out of the area living the lives of military wives. After living the military life we settled down in two separate parts of the country. Robin is now a teacher in the St Louis area, and Debbie is a deputy for Broward County in Ft. Lauderdale and owns Blue Herron Ranch in Southwest Ranches, FL.
Robin Masker & Debbie Bridgman purchased this house in 1964
We are sisters, Robin Masker and Debbie Bridgman. In the early 60's our father worked several jobs to provide his family with this house, he even helped build it. This is where we grew up and we have so many memories. When we inherited the house we decided to keep it and put a lot of hard work into renovating and adding our decorating touch to return it to its former glory. Even though our jobs took us to different states, we will always call Pennsylvania our home. We come back to stay in the house often to visit family we have in the area and during the times we aren't there we rent it out as a vacation rental. We hope that you have a pleasant stay and enjoy staying in our home...'the house that built us'.
This was our second visit. The house is perfect- it is roomy and comfortable. It is clean, well maintained and well equipped. The decor is nice without being over done. The location was perfect for our needs- very convenient from the turnpike and to Jim Thorpe. We were able to have multiple people working in the kitchen at a time and we even had company for dinner, fitting 9 people around the table for a wonderful "family" dinner.The younger folks were able to go downstairs and watch tv or play pool /ping pong when they tired of adult talk. We will most definitely return!
Our party of 8 adults and a toddler spent Thanksgiving week at the Leighton house. We were all very comfortable and impressed with the many, small details that don't always show up in pictures and reviews. The house was spotless and in an excellent location for shopping and multiple excursions to Jim Thorpe, which is only a few minutes away. The owners were great to deal with. We would definitely consider renting this house again.
Very well-kept property with inviting decoration, conveniently located to major attractions, activities, and supermarket. 10 of us stayed at this property in the past weekend, there was more than enough room/space for us. The kitchen is very well-equipped, you can basically cook/bake anything you like. The owners are responsive and easy to work with. I would definitely come back next time.
