absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just returned from our getaway at this cottage. Can only describe it in one word" WOW!" The cottage is very clean and well decorated, but the porch is the absolute best. The view from the porch is spectacular and the sound of the river is so relaxing we almost didn't want to leave it. Thank you to the owners for renting it to us.

Quaint and Quiet

This cabin was in a peaceful location. We really enjoyed the screened in porch and view of the river. It was clean and decorated with a cute cabin flair. It was the perfect getaway for our anniversary.

Beautifully decorated

  • 5 of 5
It was a beautiful cottage with the Craftsman flair. The owners obviously spent some money decorating and everything was high quality. Better than any hotel I ever stayed in!The livingroom was huge with a great sofa and fireplace... unfortunately it was too warm outside in July for a fire of course. The bed was super comfy with wonderful linens and the kitchen very well stocked with necessities. All we had to bring was the food. The place was sparkling clean in every room. Not a dust bunny to be seen anywhere. I highly recommend this for anyone wanting some R&R sitting on a completely furnished porch, grilling in the spacious yard or relaxing before the fireplace.

A very very special place

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough good things about this cottage. It is decorated with such care and charm. It is one of the most relaxing peaceful places I have ever been. My husband and I just needed some quiet time away and this cottage exceeded our expectations. We lived on the porch overlooking the river, watching deer cross the shallows, fly fishermen casting in the pool formed by the falls, reading and listening to music. The listing description and photos are exactly representations of the cottage. The owners were lovely, helpful and informative but totally unobtrusive. We really did spend most of our time on the porch so I don't have many recommendations for activities, but you are only 1/2 hour from the lovely town of Jim Thorpe and there are grocery stores, a Wawa, CVS and restaurants within a 10 minute driving distance as well as three ski slopes for winter travelers. This is a place that time forgot and we are better for it!

Great place for a Writer's Retreat

Great place for a Writer's Retreat

My friend and I are both aspiring writers who needed a weekend away to just write.

This cabin was perfect. There was more than enough space for two people. In late March there was still snow on the ground and it was a bit too chilly to spend the entire day on the back porch. I managed to squeeze in a couple of hours lounging outside before retreating into the house.

The only downside is the shower. The shower is a bit on the small side. I'm 5'7 and of average build and I find moving around in it a bit tight. If the shower head could be adjusted and could be moved around, I *think* would definitely help.

Unfortunately, we had to cut our trip short by a day because of an impending snow/rain storm heading our way. The owners were great about it. In lieu of a refund, they comped us one day for a future stay which is great because I'd love to go back when its warmer.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your suggestions about improving the cottage shower. After your review I got into the shower myself to see what the issue might be. The shower head is over 8 feet high and is adjustable so I don't think that is the problem. The shower circumference is a little tight due to the size of the bathroom we had to work with when renovating this historic cottage. I removed the shampoo/soap holder that hung on the shower head and that has increased the "wiggle room" quite a bit. I hope that helps you during your next visit.
