About Robin Masker & Debbie Bridgman

Sisters, Debbie Bridgman and Robin Masker grew up in this area. We both graduated from the Lehighton Area School District and moved out of the area living the lives of military wives. After living the military life we settled down in two separate parts of the country. Robin is now a teacher in the St Louis area, and Debbie is a deputy for Broward County in Ft. Lauderdale and owns Blue Herron Ranch in Southwest Ranches, FL.

Robin Masker & Debbie Bridgman purchased this house in 1964

Why Robin Masker & Debbie Bridgman chose Beltzville Lake

We are sisters, Robin Masker and Debbie Bridgman. In the early 60's our father worked several jobs to provide his family with this house, he even helped build it. This is where we grew up and we have so many memories. When we inherited the house we decided to keep it and put a lot of hard work into renovating and adding our decorating touch to return it to its former glory. Even though our jobs took us to different states, we will always call Pennsylvania our home. We come back to stay in the house often to visit family we have in the area and during the times we aren't there we rent it out as a vacation rental. We hope that you have a pleasant stay and enjoy staying in our home...'the house that built us'.

Fun Weekend in a Charming Home

  • 5 of 5

The pics of this house do not do it justice! So lovely and charming. Each room is special and decorated with great finds. My extended family and I had a wonderful time relaxing in this warm and inviting space. The home owners provided lots of detailed info regarding the home as well as the area. We will definitely return again:)

perfect for our family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

The house suited us perfectly. Kitchen was well equipped. Beds were comfortable and linens were of nice quality and there were plenty of towels!! The many decks and seating areas were good as the teens could hang out without the adults! We loved being so close to the Giant which had everything we needed for our 3-day visit. We would love to return next June!

Stayed at the Hinkle Haus this past weekend for Memorial Day and it was great. The pictures do not do the house justice. It is extremely clean, and well equipped. We loved that there was many different sections in the house to hang out. We would definite come back again

Wonderful family stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the house for 2 nights with another family and our stay was perfect! We came for snow tubing at Blue Mountain and it was only 20 minutes away. The town of Jim Thorpe is also very close.

The home is very well maintained and very clean. The owners have taken every detail into consideration and it really shows! We would definitely stay here again!

Nice and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time in the house. House is very nice and clean. Cool basement with plenty to do - tennis table, games, TV... Love the porch and sunny room. We liked everything about this house, and the fact, that owners were available to talk to us any time if needed. Recommended!!

Definitely A Good Summer House To Stay In

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this house for my husband birthday wknd. Me and the family enjoyed every bit of it our favorite spot was the downstairs with the penny bar and pool table and the back patio. I would definitely recommend this house to other people. We also found and seen little baby bunnies behind the house. Which was nice and cool. But overall I would definitely rent the house again most likely a different season. Thank you again Robin and Debbie
