About Helke Wright

Our family of 5 purchased this home 6 years ago and we are now relocating to Texas due to employment. We love this home and are delighted to share it with you. It is absolutely charming, peaceful, and the perfect getaway to clear your mind. It is surrounded by nature, you will love the cardinals and hummingbirds and you will see the deer walk by in the morning. It is so peaceful here and we will surely miss all the family events we celebrated here. I loved sitting in the kitchen Sunday morning with my fresh brewed coffee, watching the deer go by.

Helke Wright purchased this house in 2007

Why Helke Wright chose Lehigh Valley

The property is so unique and the atmosphere is just special -- private, peaceful and so earthy but yet in the middle of everything. Spring is especially beautiful in the Lehigh Valley.

What makes this house unique

I love the high ceilings and the artistic feel in fact the house was custom built by a German architect who worked at the local steel plant. You may guess that the house has been built on a steel frame.

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for immediate family during my daughter's wedding weekend. Plenty of space for everyone. Nicely decorated with beautiful grounds. We were 15-20 mins from both the rehearsal dinner at one Country Club, and the wedding at a different Country Club. People commented that we could have had the wedding in the huge back yard!

The basement was a bit musty upon arrival but aired out over time. No screens on the windows was a disappointment. All of the rooms had one bed which might not work for some. Overall, we were delighted with this choice!

Great place for family!

  • 5 of 5

Property was "as advertised", Conveniently located and spacious. With 6 adults and 2 infants, plenty of room to spread out and each family have its own space. It worked perfectly for us. The only negative to speak of was the staircase which ran up the center of the house form the basement to the third floor. With a 15 month old walker and 9 month old crawler, we had to be on alert. We got thru it OK and had a great stay.

Sharing a House from Across the Country

  • 5 of 5

You can not capture the Grand Canyon or the Drum Corp experience in pictures quite like you experience them in person. It is the same for the house and property on Chain Dam Road. The house is amazing and quirky with wooden staircase in the center of the home and rooms fanning out from mid, lower, and higher levels. We enjoyed using the pool table and guitar. We happened to have a guitar player in our party and it was easily tuned. The large picture windows everywhere were very Frank Lloyd Wright-esque, so we felt surrounded by the beauty of the outdoors constantly. The home was inviting, relaxing, and the rooms were large. No disappointments. The washer, dryer, plumbing, electric, and air worked very well. The yard was great for Frisbee throwing, exploring, bird watching, and seeing an occasional deer. The bike path along the road was conducive to walking or hiking. The dam was less than a mile away for viewing. We assigned breakfast, lunch, and snacks to family members and everyone had fun preparing meals to share. Eating together was great fun and convenient to do. The Wi-Fi and cable were easy to use and came in handy for us to preview some Drum Corp International entertainment before the shows: the main reason we were there. The DCI shows were in Allentown at the J. Birney Crum Stadium which was only a 30 minute drive away from the Chain Dam house. We were only 4.5 miles from anything we needed: i.e. Wal-mart, Sam's Club, Wegman's, other shopping, local dining, chain dining, and much more. Some of our more cautious family members brought their own linens: sheets and towels, but they found that it was not necessary to use them. Everything was clean. We also enjoyed sitting outside on the patio furniture, and we used the propane grill once for burgers and hot dogs. There were no major down sides to our experience, but since nothing is perfect here are a couple minor issues. Since we had never done anything like this before, we were a bit nervous that we never actually talked to anyone during the entire process. We felt like we were taking a major leap into the unknown. I like everything online and digital, but making the reservations and paying out the money from 3000 miles away was a bit unnerving. Yet, we kept going, and we are glad that we did. The only thing we wish the house had on hand was a 9 x 13 baking dish. We improvised fine. All other utensils were well stocked. Bottom floor musty. The consensus was: let's do it again!

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

The property and house are wonderful, and the pictures provided through HomeAway don't even do it justice. Everything is fantastic, and I would recommend it to anyone seeking a rental of this size in the Easton area.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a family Christmas reunion: 9 adults, 1 child, 1 baby, 1 dog and 1 cat. We each found a comfortable room to stay, there were enough bathrooms for everyone, and the dog could run freely outside. There were multiple hanging out spots in the house too, so we could each do different activities: pool table downstairs, TV room, reading area, kitchen, basket ball outside, gym, music room, etc. but there was also enough space to all sit at a table together for dinner.

There is a run/walk path along the river about 5 min from the house which was great to walk the dog and to go jogging. Other than that we didn't really visit the area, we just enjoyed each other's company in this comfortable and beautifully designed house.
