Jim Thorpe House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, 2 Flat Screens, Furnished and Equipped like a personal home

Visit sites.google.com/site/mountaingetawayspa for lots more information about all our wonderful properties.

Please contact us for correct rates.. HomeAway rates can be higher than actual rates.

Read my reviews first - learn from my previous guests. This property is set up perfectly to give you a fun place to spend your downtime between activities, to reconnect with friends and family, to relax and unwind, and make a plan for the evening or the next day. In fact the home is so inviting that you may not want to leave to take advantage of one of the multitude of activities the area has to offer! Throw some steaks on the grill, watch a few movies, read one of the many vintage or current books... the kids can head to the third floor for some play time, and before you know it your entire group will be refreshed. A wonderful location in the Borough of Jim Thorpe, within walking distance to the historic district, but far enough out to be quiet and with plenty of parking and freedom of movement. Minimum age to rent is 30...

Please page down to the bottom of this listing for a YouTube Video and many more Pictures!

Please check our other property (www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p3471453) located in the nearby town of Palmerton in a country setting, just a few easy miles from Blue Mountain Ski Area.

Step out the door, make a left and within a few minutes you are walking on the old rail bed of the switchback railroad which is now one of the most scenic hikes in the area. You can walk downtown surrounded by trees, or walk to Mauch Chunk Lake, or take one of the 6 mountain bikes provided for your use.

Beautifully furnished with upscale amenities including upgraded beds, fully equipped kitchen, dining area and decorator details, this property is a great value for groups or families, spit the cost between several couples and you have a very inexpensive mountain getaway for your family or your wedding party.

Everything is provided for your stay except your personal toiletries, food, and clothing. We provide all the bedding, bath linens and towels, paper products such as toilet paper, paper towels, bath soap. Our fully equipped kitchen is stocked with plenty of spices, an array of cook and dishware to rival what you have at home. Coffee/tea/hot chocolate, sugar, condiments such as mustard and ketchup, bbq sauce, you name it and it is already stocked in the refrigerator. Why bring all those little things when you will only use a small fraction of a jar?

A GPS is provided for your use while visiting. Many of the local attractions are pre-programmed as favoriates, so you can get there and back 'hassle-free'.

Sleeping Arrangements:

3 bedrooms on the second floor, one King and two Queen beds with upgraded mattresses

A fourth bedroom on the third floor with a Twin Bed, Full size Futon, Queen air mattress, and Twin Air Mattress and complete with all the bedding you will need for them

Also on the third floor there is an XBOX 360 and several games, a 42' plasma TV with a ROKU player, family board games, etc,--a great place for the kids to get away and overflow sleeping.

All the attractions of the Pocono and Blue Mountains are an easy and scenic drive away. You can also leave your car parked and walk downtown to enjoy a wide variety of evening entertainment, restaurants, art galleries, museums and shopping. There is an island in the kitchen with seating for 4 and a dining table with seating for 6. The switchback trail starts right behind the house, where you can walk or bike up to Mauch Chunk Lake or down to the many miles of extensive bike trails that parallel the old train tracks along the Lehigh River. A washer & dryer with detergent and dryer sheets is provided on the second floor, so you can pack light or dry out your ski wear.

There is a 51' flat screen TV in the living room, wireless internet, a DVD player and a ROKU streaming video player with a Netflix account dedicated to the house. I am picky about amenities when I travel, so I have made very attempt to furnish this property to the highest of standards. It is my goal to make your stay in Jim Thorpe both fun and relaxing, so that you will come back again and again.

A building contractor for most of my adult life, I now find myself semi-retired and able to enjoy some travel and freedom. My travel is mostly international, and I know what it is like to rent a disappointing property and then face the next few days in misery. For this reason my vacation rentals, while all being very different in personality and amenities, all provide a great value and are exactly as advertised, extremely clean, fully equipped, and everything works as advertized. My properties are for those travelers who simply do not want to risk their vacation to save a few dollars.

Michael Green purchased this house in 2005

I bought this house in need of a total restoration. My original plan was to resell the property but upon completion I liked it so much that I kept it as a rental property instead. For the first few years I had annual tenants, but during a winter in Puerto Rico, a new Cuban friend introduced me to the vacation rental business. Upon my return to the states, I converted the house into a vacation rental, and decided to make it one of the premier properties in town...

While the typical vacation rental is furnished with all the leftovers and hand-me-downs of someone else's life, this house provides a wonderful upscale experience, more like someone's personal home. I have included many interesting things, including vintage books, a complete electronic entertainment package on not just one but two floors, and upgraded furnishings and beds, because I knew that most of the other places in the area were very basic and bare bones.. so far it has proven to be a very popular destination.

Amazing

As you walk through the door you are transported into another world. This house is so charming it welcomes you with open arms and makes you feel at home. The town is also very charming and there is so much to do wether it is a walk into town or eating at one of the many restaurants. Michael has everything you could ask for and more in this house and is only a phone call or email away. I always enjoy my stay in this house and am very sad when it is time to leave. If you are looking for a slice of heaven then this is the home for you. I can't wait to visit again.

Fabulous House!

  • Submitted: Dec 30, 2013
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
I rented this house for a girl's weekend. We loved this house! The owner is incredible with customer service, which was the best. Second, the house was very clean. Third, this owner is organized beyond belief! There are signs as well as many helpful extra amenities around the house (like laundry detergent as well as clear directions on using the TV). This too added to the pleasant outcome of our stay. My girlfriend cooked us all breakfast one morning and snacks at night. We found everything that we needed in the kitchen. Everyone in our group also really appreciated the warm and cozy decor. It really was a nice house. My goal is to get my girlfriends to do a weekend here in the summer so we can enjoy the beautiful outdoor deck! Everyone in our group also commented that this would be a great house for families too!
Owner's Response: Hello Marci and I am glad that you found the home to be "as advertized" with all the amenities and all those little extras that everyone has around their own house, but most vacation rentals do not!! You really should come back in the summer and enjoy the area when everything is in bloom and the entire Lehigh Valley is full of color and energy! Thank you for taking the time to write a review.. it is very much appreciated!
