Our family lives on busy Long Island which affords us wonderful waterfront and beaches. We have extended family in PA and wanted our own piece of paradise nearby so we ventured out over 10 years ago and bought this warm, charming, country home. It was love at first sight!

Owner purchased this chateau / country house in 2003

When looking for a vacation rental I wanted something my own family would enjoy too. I wanted a country feel in the woods to get us away from our hectic lives. This home is 10 miles off Route 80 at Exit 284. It's just 110 miles from NYC. It was in the perfect location. Extremely private, easy to get to, only a few hours drive and plenty of things to do in the surrounding area. I hope your family loves this home as much as mine does.

The family room is my paradise. There are 15 floor to ceiling windows for a panoramic view of the woods. This is where you'll see wild life grazing or just passing through. You'll see for yourself if you join us!

BEAUTIFUL HOME

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent a relaxing week at Pensi Place. All the comforts of home are there with privacy and camp fire nights. This house is spotless and is well maintained. Grass mowed while we were there and the land is beautifully manicured. We encountered no mosquitoes during our 7/11 to 7/18/14 stay. Would recommend this retreat and definitely will rent again!

A GREAT WEEKEND GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for Memorial Day weekend with 6 people and we had a great time! The house is really nice and clean. It's very secluded but still close to everything. Catherine is very easy to deal with. She always responded to my emails very quickly. We're thinking of coming back next year.

FUN IN THE WOODS

  • 5 of 5
The house was clean, spacious, cozy, comfortable and quiet and it had everything you would need. We had lots of fun! Close to downtown Jim Thorpe, Penn's Peak, Lake Harmony etc. Found unique places to go to like Bit's and Pieces antique shop down the road and an indoor flea/antique center in Slatington. It was a pleasure renting from Catherine!

THIRD STAY AND IS JUST GETS BETTER

  • 5 of 5
Our third stay at this amazing house in jim thorpe. As usual Catherine was amazing and accommodating even when we decided to stay an extra day. Lots of snow on the ground and lots of wood in the woodshed for the many fires we sat by in the evenings. This home is secluded, warm and cozy but close enough to many wonderful attractions and restaurants that you are never at a lack for something to do. Thanks again Catherine you are the best! Can't wait to come back!!!!

AWESOME WEEKEND WITH THE GUYS!

  • 5 of 5
This place was perfect for our guys weekend. Despite being hit with a snow storm the night before we left, everyone in our group still had a blast! The driveway was plowed in time for our arrival, there was plenty of firewood in the shed to last the whole weekend, and there is so much room in the cabin that even with 7 guys it never felt crowded. Everyone even had their own bed. I am definately looking forward to staying here again. Working with Catherine was effortless and just added to the overall great experience.

PERFECT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This house had everything we needed. Everything was just as it was described. The house was quite spacious while being warm and cozy at the same time. The property is beautiful as well. You are secluded while at the same time being minutes away from everything you need. You are minutes away from Big Boulder, Jack Frost and Split Rock Water Park. Camel back is close enough too. Down town Jim Thorpe is adorable with lots of shopping and great places to eat. The owner was wonderful to deal with. She couldn't be more pleasant and accommodating. We will absolutely be staying here again.
