About Michael

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 purchased this house in 2005

Why Michael chose Palmerton

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.

Great spot!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to this house for our honeymoon. We had a great time!!! The house was very clean when we got here, and the tv with all of the apps was also very helpful on our day of rain! Michael was great by answering my phone call when we couldn’t find the house and got us here in minutes! He also dropped off skii tickets for us at a discounted rate. The deck was a fabulous feature even though it was 20 degrees we went out and saw the beautiful views! I would definitely stay here again!!

Great place to stay for a ski weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at the cottage for New Years Eve weekend. We were looking for a nice place to relax and spend our downtime when not on the mountain skiing/snowboarding. Michael's cottage was the perfect place! We comfortably slept 5 people in the cottage and had room to sleep at least 2 more. The place was stocked with all the essentials and more. The kitchen was fully equipped, along with a grill outside that we took advantage of. The bathroom even had certain essentials just in case you forgot to pack anything. The living room was the perfect amount of space for us to watch tv, play games and enjoy time together.

It was also nice being so close to Blue Mountain! The house is very close to the town with local restaurants, grocery stores and convenient stores. We even found a winery that was just 25 mins away, so the area had a lot to offer!

Michael is also a very great host. He let us know when the cottage was ready for us to check in and made sure we had all that we needed. He keeps the cottage very clean and it shows! Everything was in great shape and made us all feel at home in the cottage.

Would highly recommend staying here if you're looking for a place to stay near the poconos/Blue Mountain.

My family and I stayed at this wonderful cottage just a short drive from Blue Mt. The cottage was in excellent condition and very very clean! We could not have been happier with our choice and we will definitely be back next season. Michael was extremely easy to communicate with and responded quickly to emails and messages. Again, if you are looking to stay in a home that has all the amenities and in great condition, look no further because you will be extremely happy for booking this cottage. Thank you again Michael and we are already looking forward to next year!

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!

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.
