The Amsterdam House is located just steps away from the Mauch Chunk Opera House, Marion Hose Bar and all of the Historic District. We invite you to enjoy our second floor apartment. Owners of the home are Laura and Marco and permanently reside in New York City. I (Jennifer) am the full-time manager of the home and will help ensure you have a pleasurable experience in the NYC Suite. I am also a local who knows just about everything there is to see and do in town and I'm happy to make recommendations!
Marco and Laura recently purchased the entire home with the intention of occasionally using the second floor suite as a respite from New York City. Because Marco is from the Netherlands, it seemed fitting to call it "The Amsterdam House" as it reminded him of some of the homes found there. And, with Laura being from New York City, the apartment reminded her of quaint lofts found throughout the city. They invite you to their home away from home and hope you enjoy it as much as they do.
The kitchen is fully equipped for you to make everything from snacks to complete meals. There are plenty of pots and pans, knives, cutting boards, prep bowls, small food processor, 4-cup drip coffee maker including filters, toaster and even a large crock pot.
Because Marco and Laura occasionally use the apartment, there are two locked closets for their use. The other closets have plenty of room for our guests belongings.
The NYC Suite is located on the second floor, so please be prepared to climb stairs with your belongings. There is ON-STREET parking only near the home, which can be limited during some festival weekends and holidays. Please be prepared to possibly walk a distance. There is a municipal lot about a half mile away for overnight parking (fees may apply).
We have a 42" smart TV with cable and Netflix for your use. You may log into the other apps with your account info. There is a DVD player and a few DVDs for your use - a Redbox is located at the Turkey Hill downtown and there's also one at the Giant in Lehighton.
The back bedroom has a full size bed with a twin pull-out trundle. It's a great room for the kids to have separate beds. Anyone staying in the back bedroom will find it convenient to access the main living area through the hallway instead of needing to go through the master bedroom when it's occupied.
