About Neil Brown

I am a retired Bloomsburg University professor. I grew up in Laureldale, PA and loved playing sports in school. Served in the USMC and then attended Kutztown University, Lehigh University and Temple University where I received a doctorate. My wife is a retired 1st grade teacher - taught in the Bethlehem Area School District for 37 years.

We especially enjoy college basketball and attend a number of games each year around the country. Our current home is in Bethlehem, PA and we enjoy staying in the Poconos very much.

Neil Brown purchased this chalet in 2015

Why Neil Brown chose Pennsylvania

I loved vacationing and visiting the Poconos my entire lifetime. An Amish friend of mine designed and constructed a log home for us. We were not there enough and thought other people might enjoy staying in our vacation home. Since then, we now have 3 chalets available for people to enjoy as much as we do.

What makes this chalet unique

The chalet is located on a mountain top near the Lehigh River Gorge. The gorge is noted for rafting, fishing, hiking and biking.

This is a historic area - the Industrial Revolution began along the Lehigh River. There are many attractions in the area - too many to mention. However, if you want to do absolutely nothing it is also the perfect place.

Spacious and Cozy. Good Vibes.

  • 5 of 5

Came with a group of 12 and we had such a wonderful time. The house was clean and everything was nicely laid out and ready to go when we got there. Even the pool table was racked up, which I found to be a nice touch.

As you can see in the pictures, the house itself has a really great aesthetic. We came in late January and the house was warm and comfortable and the hot tub was a nice bonus. The house has a secluded feel and we even got a fire going out back with wood supplied at the house.

Neil was a pleasure to communicate with and all of his responses were timely and informative. We will definitely look into a return trip in the future. Thanks Neil!

Phenominal property

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year that we have spent Women's Weekend at this property. The ladies in my family could not be more pleased. The property is super clean & well maintained. Everything you need is provided. Our family of 12 had plenty of room & lots to do the entire weekend. Our favorite part is the fire pit. We already have plans to return next year. You will not be disappointed if you choose to stay here. Thank you Neil.

Beautiful Property, Completely Turnkey!

  • 5 of 5

This Chalet is absolutely beautiful. This is the only home I have ever rented in which I didn't have to clean a single thing upon arrival, it was immaculate! Everything is provided for you and the owner and support staff are so friendly and helpful. It comfortably fit my large family of 13 with plenty of beds and room to spare. We stayed in summer and I can only imagine how beautiful the surrounding yard looks in the fall, we will be back!
