Located in Palmerton, a Mayberryish town of 5000 people about a 15 minute ride from both Jim Thorpe and Blue Mountain Ski Area. Offering comfortable sleeping for 6, this house has the same amenities as our two other more upscale homes but at a much lower price. A fully equipped kitchen, off street parking for 2 cars, and a private deck with an amazing view of the Blue Mountains and Appalachian Trail... The deck and landscaping in the rear of the house has a taste of Latin America, with various elevations, and great lighting, a gas grill, shade, and plenty of seating.. simply put you couldn't ask for more in an outdoor entertainment area. Inside, you will find all your linens, Fully Equipped Kitchen, WIFI internet, washer and dryer, a 47' flat screen with FREE streaming Netflix dedicated to the house, and much more. This property should appeal to those travelers on a tighter budget who want a place to reconnect with friends, have a deck party, play some music, and basically have a good time while still being an easy drive from all the action in the Lehigh Valley, including Jim Thorpe and Blue Mountain Ski Area.

About Michael Green

A building contractor for most of my adult life, I now find myself semi-retired and able to enjoy some travel and freedom. My vacation rental business fits perfectly into my lifestyle, because it puts me in contact with others who like to explore new places and have the resources of time and money to follow through.. I also know from my travels what it is like to get to a destination and to have your pre-arranged accommodations wind up being a catastrophe... so my vacation rentals, while all being very different in personality and amenities, all provide a great value and are exactly as advertised...

Michael Green purchased this bungalow in 2005

Why Michael Green chose Blue Mountain

While renting my other property in the Borough of Jim Thorpe which is very much upscale, I realized that the area needed a property that was more suitable to a younger traveler or someone looking for more than a hotel, but not a full blown vacation rental. Something furnished in a simpler style, with a great outdoor entertainment area, and where the energy of a younger crowd would not be an issue.. this property fulfills all that and more, while still being central to all the activities in the Lehigh Valley area.

Perfect for our Family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during the weekend of the Spartan Palmerton Race. A perfect spot as it was very close to Blue Mountain. The property is well maintained as is the interior of the cottage. Clean and up-to-date. One great thing was the attentiveness and response time with the owner, Michael, who was friendly and accommodating. The cottage had all the things we needed for the weekend of the Spartan Race. A huge plus was being able to come back after my wife's race and relax, have a few drinks and grill up on the back deck. The deck looks out over the house onto the mountains with a spectacular view. It was very relaxing and the ambience with the landscape lighting and decorative lights was great and was just what we needed after a long hot day. I would definitely recommend renting the cottage. My wife, twin 9 year olds, and I were very happy with everything. Thank you Michael.

Owner's Response: Thank you Kevin for the wonderful review.. I appreciate that you recognized my efforts to make service to my guests my #1 priority.. communication is everything in my opinion. The Cottage has all you could ever need in a small and affordable package.. and the deck is a huge added bonus (I love the views up there too). I certainly hope you come back for the next Spartan race!

Weekend ski vacation

  • 5 of 5

Went down to palmerton with four friends to ski for the weekend at blue mountain. House was exactly 15 min drive from the mountain as advertised. House was fully stocked with spices, condiments, towels, soaps everything you would need. Mike was extremely accommodating, responded promptly to all emails and calls. Highly recommend this incredible house in a great location with a beatiful view.

Great experience overall.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jamie for taking the time to write such a nice review.. I am very "guest oriented" and my goal is that everyone who stays in one of my homes has an excellent experience. The Cottage is definitely close to everything, and although it is small, it has it all! Thank you for leaving the house in such great shape, and I sure hope you come back in the future!

GREAT place!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I travelled to Pa to do our first Spartan Race. The house was VERY convenient to Blue Mountain. The view is amaxing!!!!! The house did not disappoint!!!! It was VERY clean and just as owner advertised it. It was very relaxing to come back to after doing that challenging course. Owner was great to communicate with and made planning our trip easy. We plan on coming back for another Spartan and will most definitely stay here or one of his larger properties. Our only wish would've been to have cable TV as there is no cable in the house. Thanks for a great stay, Michael!
