About H McIntosh
Our family moved into this house in 2007. Due to our work location we needed to relocate to a different area and started to rent the property. We love this house which is the reason why we have not sold the property. Our family celebrated many events here and the memories are just too precious. We stopped renting the house in 2016 and just relisted the property in 2019. If you would like to get away to catch a break and still like to be in the middle of everything this is the perfect place for you. The house is near everything and yet so private when you need quiet. We left a lot of books in the house if you like to read. Occasionally you will see the deer or fox in the garden. If you like to walk there is a bike trail behind the house next to the river perfect for running, biking or hiking. If you like to shop the Lehigh Valley Mall is 17 miles from the house or you can just drive up to Tannersville to the Crossings Premium Outlets about 30 miles from the house.

We had a lovely stay. The house was perfect for our needs. I would not recommend it for toddlers or even small children. Two open staircases and the railing upstairs could be very dangerous for small ones. It was in a great location for us. We had family in Allentown, went to NYC and Princeton all within the week. Very centrally located. Plenty of room for 6 of us.
Spacious and unique
We stayed a week here with two other couples while we enjoyed Musikfest. There was plenty of space to relax and enjoy some down time. There were some cobwebs on the two porches and in the high ceilings and we had to spray for some ants in the kitchen, but overall the house was clean and well maintained. One misadventure was that the house alarm hadn't been disarmed before we arrived and we set it off, resulting in a visit from the local police before it was sorted out.
Parking is tight for more than two cars. We enjoyed watching deer browse in the backyard several mornings. In addition to Musikfest, we made a day trip to Philadelphia and visited a couple of local brew pubs. I would recommend the house to people visiting the area, particularly larger families or a group of friends.
We have our maid service clean the property regularly including cob webs however, due the woods nearby it is a constant battle.
We stayed at this property while visiting our family for a reunion and it was perfect for our use. My son and his wife flew in to Philly from the west coast, the airport is less than 90 minutes away. The rest of us (my son and daughter-in-law with grandchild, another son, my wife and I) drove up from the south. The pictures really can't capture how large and comfortable this house is. All of us had plenty of room to get together for meals or just talk, and if one of us needed to get away for a nap (the grand baby) there were plenty of quiet bedrooms to get away to. One word of caution that I must make: the open stairway in the center of the house was not "toddler friendly" in that the balusters on the railings were far enough apart that a child could fall between them. We quickly remedied this by using a temporary toddler fence around them.
What a pleasure to wake up in the morning and look out the windows of the back of the house to the garden view. Twice we saw deer in the distance. The Old Orchard location is perfect, an established neighborhood with wonderful old trees, close to everything that the Lehigh Valley offers. We would highly recommend this property and look forward to using it again for future trips home.
We rented this house for daughter's graduation from Lafayette. The house was immaculate,extremely comfortable and very quiet, while being close to all necessities. Would definitely rent again, but unfortunately will probably not have the need.
We rented this property as our daughter was recently married in Bethlehem, PA with the reception in Easton & this home was absolutely perfect as our "home base"!! We were extremely happy with everything about the home which is kept very clean inside and out the beautiful grounds!! We would not hesitate for a moment to rent this home again - is perfect for any type of family function!
