About Jennifer or Garry D.
We met at Camelback Ski Resort at The Thirsty Camel after a day of skiing and snowboarding. The Poconos holds a special place in our hearts. We decided to buy land and build our very own vacation home from the ground up. Garry is a builder and contractor in South Jersey. We both built this house with our own two hands in our spare time while running businesses, starting & raising a family. We love Jim Thorpe, the location, the activities, the beautiful scenery, the wildlife, etc...We hope you enjoy and respect it as much as we do. We really hope you enjoy your stay and make special memories while staying in our home.
Jennifer or Garry D. purchased this Chalet in 2016
Why Jennifer or Garry D. chose Jim Thorpe
Location! Location! Location! Close to skiing, whitewater rafting, hiking, biking, shopping, etc...We love the outdoors! We chose our property specifically because of how scenic and quiet it is.
What makes this Chalet unique
Our home is located on a cul-de-sac nestled in the woods where we usually see bears, deer, turkey, and fox run freely. We love the scenery and the peaceful, quiet setting. Very relaxing yet there are many activities to keep you and your family busy no matter the season.

Amazing Christmas at the Boarding Bear Chalet
We had a wonderful and very relaxing Christmas stay at the Boarding Bear Chalet. The house was beautiful and very clean. We were not expecting Christmas decorations and were so excited to see a stunning Christmas tree and outside lights. The house is extremely well designed and we especially loved the large master bathroom! We woke up on Christmas Eve to a light dusting of snow that transformed the forest into a winter wonderland. We loved sitting in the living room looking out over the forest (very secluded!) Overall, a wonderful family vacation!
Thank you Rebecca! We are so happy to hear that you had a wonderful Christmas at our home. We appreciate the great review and kind words. If ever visiting family in the area again, please keep us in mind for future visits. Have a very Happy New Year!
House was great. We loved the windows to the outdoors and the huge porch looking out on the wooded setting. Thanks for making this a lovely weekend for our family!
Thank you Nancy! We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay! Please consider coming back to stay on your next visit to the Jim Thorpe area.
A great place to stay that feels secluded, but is not a far drive to activities.
It was a great weekend with friends.
The home was cozy, and had a lot of amenities.
The owners were very accommodating.
I would love to come back in the summer to take advantage of all the home and area have to offer.
Thank you Barb! We are thrilled that you and your guests had a wonderful time. Please do consider our home next time you visit the Pocono Mountains. We'd be happy to have you as guests again!
Beautiful home with beautiful scenery.
A group of us girls came up to Jim Thorpe for a relaxing weekend away from everything and this house was exceptional. The house is gorgeous, clean and beautifully furnished. The homeowners were extremely helpful and readily available for any questions we had during our stay. We will definitely come back to stay here!
Thank you so much for the kind words! Glad you and your guests loved our home and enjoyed your stay! Please do keep us in mind for your next mountain getaway!
Thank you, Jen and Garry D.
Relaxing home in the woods
Perfect, relaxing home to spend our sibling reunion. The home is large enough to accommodate our party of 7. It was a rainy weekend so we could enjoy the outdoor firepit or fireplace (or deck) but it was still fun inside. There're great hiking trails in/around Jim Thorpe and the town itself is lovely. We spent each night in town enjoying the fun restaurants and ambiance
