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.

The space

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.

We rented the house for a family gathering and loved it. The proximity to downtown Jim Thorpe is as described and easily accessible. The kids and adults alike loved the video games. We found the house to be clean, comfortable and well stocked. Check in was a breeze with the door code access. We would definitely rent it again

Nice and cozy house at a quiet location. It is at the entrance of Okono Glens, and minutes away from Broadway. House has all the amenities we needed. I was initially worried when I did not hear from Matt for 2 days, but it turned out it was AirBNB's glitch of not delivering the messages. In the end, it all worked out.

We were very happy in this place. It's very nice and close enough to the town of Jim Thorpe that access was not a problem at all. The host was very available and was quick to answer any questions that came up. Definitely one of the best options around.

The house is not nearly as good as it looks in the photos. It is dark inside with inadequate lighting, there are no closets or dressers in the bedroom for clothes, there is a large unhidden washer and dryer in one of the bedrooms, you cannot get current shows on the television even on basic channels, the furniture is not very comfortable, and the showers are tiny. The house was renovated in the cheapest way possible. We felt it was not worth the price. On the positive side, the outdoor spaces are very nice and it is in a great location close to town and to hiking trails.

Response from Matthew:
After dozens of perfect reviews, it just goes to show, you can't please everybody. I didn't hear from you during your visit, and I wish that I had so I might have been able to address your concerns. I have no idea why you would write that our washer and dryer are located "out in the open" - they are in a closet behind doors that close. Both bedrooms have closets. I'm not sure how you could have missed them. Our listing also describes that there's no cable TV at the home, but that streaming services are available. I'm sorry you didn't find the furniture comfortable. I have not heard this complaint from any other guest. The sleeper sofa, for example, is from Pottery Barn and cost over $3,000. Complaining about the size of the stall shower in a home that has a master bathroom larger than many apartments, and the cost of our renovation in a home with solid maple cabinets, all new stainless steel appliances, and a whirlpool tub the size of a bass boat... not sure what to say to that. I have to wonder if your complaints are related to your attempt to try to cancel your booking the day before you were scheduled to arrive because you were concerned about the weather. I'm sorry we weren't able to accommodate this request, and I'm sorry that it seems that you didn't enjoy your stay with us. I wish you better luck in your future travels.

Wonderful home! I was able to relax, cook and unwind at this "cabin." Perfect location for hiking and biking. I love outdoor activities, but my wife and I don't like to get too rustic. This house allowed us to experience the great outdoors while coming home to something modern and comfortable. Plus, there is a Namco arcade machine. Don't question it. Just book this property. You will be happy.

Great stay with some of my girlfriends. Close to Glen Onoko where we adventured for a day. We love Jim Thorpe and look forward to going back!
