With 6 kids, there is actually enough room for all of us! We love the lot's privacy for use of the hot tub, and the large field and baseball field behind the house is enjoyable for a family game. Our favorite spot though is definitely the lake, and access with your canoe and kayaks wins us over every time! The bikes in the shed were a great way to get around to the pool and lake, so thank you!

Fantastic Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented the cabin for a weekend getaway to celebrate our anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property was immaculately clean and very comfortable. The owners were lovely, responded to any questions we had quickly, and best of all they let us check in as early as we wanted and check out as late as we wanted. It was like adding an extra day to our stay. The hot tub was absolutely fantastic, we were in it a few times each day. The cabin was relatively secluded, very quiet and peaceful. My only suggestion to the owners would be maybe updating the TV - the cable worked just fine, but I guess we are spoiled with high def TV. We didn't really come to watch TV, so I still give the place 5 stars. You won't regret staying here. The pictures on the website don't quite do it justice, it was roomier than we expected. The master bedroom has its own separate hallway, making it very private from the other bedrooms and the loft sleeping area. The deck and the gazebo over the hot tub looked new and was really nice. We had a great time.

Extra long weekend

  • 5 of 5
Had a wonderful time in the cabin. We got lucky and had a little snow, just enough to cover the ground which made it even better. The town of Jim Thorpe is absolutely wonderful, even though we went to town after the St. Patrick's Day Parade and most shops were closed. For all the people who cannot do without there is a Walmart a short drive away. We are looking forward to a stay in the warmer months to check out the lake. Also went on a 7.26 mile hike to the Boulder Field, and lets just say hiking in PA is not like hiking in DE. All in all a wonderful time and would recommend the cabin to anyone who wants to get away without being too far away.

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Wow what a great weekend. Amy and I arrived early on Friday to find the house exactly as advertised. Natalie was very helpful with all communication both prior to arrival, during our stay and also upon departure. The rental was the cleanest property that we have rented including the hot tub. We were able to arrive as early as we wanted on Friday and stay as late as we wanted on Sunday. All arrival instructions and departure instructions were clearly explained and easy to understand. This does not happen with all rentals. The pictures do not do any justice for this rental. What an amazing experience. We spent most of the day Friday, relaxing in the hot tub. I proposed and Amy said yes!!! We spent the rest of the weekend sightseeing in Jim Thorpe and the general area. We would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone who is looking for a quiet relaxing getaway that is close in proximity to anything needed. Natalie's customer service, information, directions and overall communication was second to none. Oh and did I mention the hot tub was clean, amazing and very relaxing. I am sure we wil be staying her again in the future. Again a huge thank you to Natalie and Jim for giving us the opportunity to stay and their house as it will commemorate a very special time for Amy and I.

Jim Thorpe Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We were so pleased with this charming rental cottage! The log cabin feel and rustic country decor give you a warm, relaxed feeling right away! But, the cabin has all the modern conveniences that you would need and was very clean. The description and pictures of the Kegelman's Log Home are totally accurate. What I didn't realize, was that there are actually two hallways- one with 2 bedrooms and a bathroom off of it and the other one with the master bedroom and connecting master bathroom off of it. I really liked this layout, and although we were just one couple, I see where it would be great if there were more people or kids - you'd each have your own area. (Also, my husband was happy that he had his own bathroom. Ha!)
The owners were very thoughtful and concerned about our wants and comfort - they replied quickly to any questions we had and were a delight to deal with!
We enjoyed the hot tub and we also used the bikes one day and rode around through the pretty community of Bear Creek Lake with it's lake, two beaches and forested roads- lots of beautiful cottages and homes all over, but very private because of all the trees.( I will say that the bikes were a little old and a couple of them were in need of air in the tires, but we managed, and it was a bonus to have them anyways.) We saw deer at the back of the cabin and also while driving through the community - there seem to be lots of them around! I wish we would have had time to use the canoe- the lake looked so nice!
We loved the town of Jim Thorpe and looked through a lot of the great little shops. Also, we went on the hour long train ride along the river. We decided to go first class which is a section of the train that is set up like it would have been in the 1930's or 40's, I think. We were the only ones in first class, so got to sit outside on the back of the train and had the best view you could get! Got lots of great pics of the mountains and river with rafters. We also took a tour of the Harry Packer Mansion. Lots to do in that picturesque little town!
We want to come back and bring some friends or family and we would definitely stay here again! It's very central to lots of attractions and has lots of room. Will recommend it to all we know!

Wonderful Cabin!

  • 5 of 5
What a peaceful and wonderful retreat! My husband and I spent an entirely relaxing but adventurous week in your delightful cabin. We hiked, biked, and kayaked, and always ended our day by a relaxing evening in the hot tub. It was so quiet and peaceful there and we enjoyed every moment of it. The last two nights, we had several kayak friends join us (we were all going to kayak the LeHigh on the weekend), and we easily slept 8 people there with room to spare! Thank you so much -- we agreed it's the best vacation we've ever had.
