About Catherine

Our family lives on busy Long Island which affords us wonderful waterfront and beaches. We have extended family in PA and wanted our own piece of paradise nearby so we ventured out in 2003 and bought this warm, charming, country home. It was love at first sight!

Catherine purchased this chateau / country house in 2003

Why Catherine chose Jim Thorpe

When looking for a vacation rental I wanted something my own family would enjoy too. I wanted a country feel in the woods to get us away from our hectic lives. This home is 10 miles off Route 80 at Exit 284. It's just 110 miles from NYC. It was in the perfect location. Extremely private, easy to get to, only a few hours drive and plenty of things to do in the surrounding area. I hope your family loves this home as much as mine does.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The family room is my paradise. There are 15 floor to ceiling windows for a panoramic view of the woods. This is where you'll see wild life grazing or just passing through. You'll see for yourself if you join us!

Cozy and secluded

  • 5 of 5

Catherine was amazing from being to end. This home is exactly what it advertises. It's secluded and roomy. I loved having the big kitchen to work in. Having 3 bathrooms was great as well. The back screen porch was great for late night relaxing in the summer breeze. I cannot wait to bring the kids next time. I definitely will recommend this home to friends and family. We will definitely be back soon. Thanks Catherine for everything.

Comfortable and quiet

  • 5 of 5

This home suited us perfectly for our Pennsylvania hike on the Appalachian trail. The kitchen is wonderful. The beds nice and soft. We enjoyed seeing the trees and rhodendron from the dining room. Even had a bear come to the window during supper one night. We appreciate the responsive of the owner and can certainly recommend this property.
