Have you heard of "glamping" - glamorous camping? We've just finished renovating this adorable cabin in the woods with high-end modern touches - welcome to our "glabin"!
At more than 1600 square feet, this two-bedroom, two bath home has been perfected with brand new finishes on virtually every surface. It's immaculately clean and meticulously designed with comfort and luxury in mind, including a beautiful gourmet kitchen with new everything.
LGBT & POC guests are welcome.
Unlike many other listings in our area, this home is only a few minutes drive from downtown Jim Thorpe, and just steps away from Lehigh Gorge State Park.
Sleeping arrangements accommodate up to 8 people, and include:
- A master bedroom (second floor) with a king-sized bed
- A second bedroom (first floor) with a queen-sized bed
- A loft area with a trundle/day bed that expands to a double bed for one single or couple
- A large, queen-sized sleeper sofa in the living room
Our fully-equipped kitchen includes all new stainless steel appliances, a gas stove (not electric, not ever!), microwave oven, toaster, razor-sharp kitchen knives, and all of the utensils and cookware you'll need to enjoy a weekend away with your friends and/or family.
New for Summer 2017, our home includes an authentic 80's Konami arcade console video game, with a 30-in-1 ROM chipset that includes all of your classic favorites, including the PAC-MANs, Donkey Kongs, Galagas, Dig Dug, and many more. The machine is set to free play and supports both 1 and 2 player modes.
We do welcome you to bring along your dogs (up to two), with the caveat that they not be allowed on the beds or furniture at any time, and that no evidence may be left behind of them, inside or outside the home. If you do bring your pets, please make sure you have time on the day of checkout to sweep and/or vacuum as necessary to remove any sign of pet hair, as we often check guests out on the same day you're checking in, and won't have extra time to remove pet hair left behind.
We provide all the linens and towels you'll need. The home is thoroughly cleaned and laundered after each guest checks out, then inspected by a friend of our family. We appreciate your tidiness, and if you choose to load and run the dishwasher, we'll appreciate that also. But unlike many other vacation rentals, we do not expect you to fully prepare the home for the next guest.
Toilet paper, paper towels, basic toiletries, are all provided, as well as dish detergent, dish soap, dish towels, garbage bags, etc. There's a coffee maker with a permanent gold coffee filter.
The cleaning fee added to your rental cost includes complete cleaning service. We appreciate guests who leave our home tidy, but you do not need to do laundry, dishes, or housework before checking out.
We aim to provide a higher level of comfort and luxury for visitors who are accustomed to a higher standard of care. We provide our guests with a 24 hour cell phone number that they can use to address any problems they encounter as our guests.
Hi-speed wifi is provided. The living room TV has a large flat-screen TV with Apple TV connected. The LCD TV in the loft space has an Amazon Fire. There's no cable TV service, so if you plan to watch TV, please be sure you're able to enjoy the programming you want from the streaming services.
Your reservation must include the exact number of guests in your party, including children. If you choose to add guests after making your reservation, a fee of $25 per person, per night will apply. Just let us know and we'll apply the up-charge. The up-charge for additional guests applies to the entire duration of your reservation, regardless of which date your guests arrive or depart. No refunds for extra guest charges will be given within 7 days of check-in.
Update Summer 2017: We've installed in the living room a record player with built-in speakers, along with a collection or a dozen and a half or so records from our collection of vintage vinyl albums. We hope you'll enjoy spinning some of these terrific records for your friends and family.
The entire home is yours for your stay.
