Why Marina chose Lehighton
This beautiful log house speaks to you, it beacons you to stay, relax and enjoy. No stay at the hotel feeling. Property is quite and secluded, yet close to all the activities the Southern Poconos has to offer at your fingertips. Beltzville Lake and State Park are truly beautiful and peaceful, and yet are only 1.5 hours from Philadelphia, and 2 hours from New York City. The lodge is such a short drive away from many major cities, and yet, so far removed from the hustle and bustle of every-day life. Beltzville lake is part of my happy memories of picnics, swimming, hiking, boating, and fishing at the lake!
What makes this Lodge unique
Serene setting. Feels like a waterfront and yet far enough from the lake that the motor boating noise does not bother you. All bedrooms are located off of the central great room, which has a 26-foot stone two-sided fireplace. The house is ideal for spending a lot of quality time together with family and friends, and yet allows for alone-time if that is what you are looking for. The dining room opens to the back deck, which overlooks the 8-mile long Beltzville Lake. There are hiking trails all around the lake, and you can walk to the lake right from the house. The State Park and swimming area are just two miles from the house, and there are picnic areas, swimming areas, and boat rentals available during the summer months. In the winter, Blue Mountain Ski Area is just 8 miles from the house, and Big Boulder and Camelback are just a bit further. The scenic, historic town of Jim Thorpe is just 11 miles from the house, with an abundance of restaurants, art galleries, and museums. For the nature enthusiast, there are biking trails, white water rafting, kayaking, and paint ball all within 15 minutes from the house.

We had stayed at this house for a friends wedding, and bride actually to ready at this house, and had the rehearsal dinner here. Everything was perfect, so spacious and beautiful! Everyone had their own space and bathroom which made things so easy. Loved the views and the outdoor spaces as well. It's right down the road from a park and 10 minutes from Blue Mountain Resort! The owners were incredibly communicative and accommodating! Would highly recommend for large groups! Thanks for the amazing trip!
Spacious and well located property with all the amenities
We were a group of 18 people including 10 young grandchildren and there was plenty of space for everyone. On a weekend we swelled to 22 people and no problem absorbing them; there are plenty of roll-out cots with linens to accommodate 23 and rooms are large enough to accommodate them. House is surrounded by fields of wildflowers which we went and picked some bouquets but beware of ticks and bees if you venture in that wilderness. Entering the home, your spirits soar about 40 feet to the top of the great room, following the converging lines of the massive rising chimney which serves to divide living from dining spaces.
As this was once a B&B, every room has its fireplace and bathroom integral to it.
For Swimming you drive five minutes to the Beltzville State park (free) which has a nice beach, picnic tables, and a snack bar. The house has 3 kayaks which must’ve treked to the lakefront down a long trail.
The kids loved this house. Plenty of room in and out for them to spread their wings and that they did.
We went to a county fair, the world’s largest country general store, an old fashioned ice cream shop , a lakebed full of boulders , etc, but mostly this old writer was content to enjoy the property and do the regular grocery shopping at a GIANT about 10-15 min. Away.
Stay away from this house!!!!
The owner will try to find a way to keep your deposit so be very careful if you ever try to book this place. I would highly recommend other owner over this, we made a mistake not going over the previous reviews from the guest. Before you plan to stay get all the details from the list of things the owner wants in her house otherwise you will end up with surprises.
It's amazing how a glowing review and happy renters turned into a nightmare just because we decided to keep $100 to repair significant damage these guests caused to our lawn after admitted that it was their mistake. We take pride in keeping the lodge and the grounds in the best condition possible, and will keep some of the security deposit to cover major damages.
The lodge was absolutely stunning.
The lodge was absolutely stunning. Perfect for my family and I getting ready the morning of my wedding. One thing to note that even though the location has individual bathrooms per room and a nice kitchen and eating space, it does not include any amenities like coffee for the coffee maker or toiletries for the bathrooms, or paper towels. I would still recommend this location- above all it was very comfortable and absolutely beautiful.
Glad you enjoyed all the lodge has to offer. We try to provide as much as we can but based on our experience renters prefer to use their own type of coffee, tea and toiletries. We do have 2 types of coffee makers and a tea kettle plus coffee filters and some spices. Some emergency toiletries are inside one of the closets. Every sink has hand soap as well.
All we can say is wow!
We had a gathering of,young,families,and,there was no lack of activities ranging from,boating, kayaking, fishing, swimming and hiking. The house is so so comfortable. Pictures don't do it justice and we had plenty of space to,roam. Fooseball table was a big hit so,were the bonfire and banmington. 5 acre property surrounded by acres of state park land makes it feel like you are on own giant estate. Beach is minutes away for swimming and Blue Mountain and Town of Jim Thorpe is very close. Restaurants and activities at Jim Thorpe are many and for every taste. Will,come,back every year 4 sure.
Nice house and grounds
Great house and grounds, which is comfortable for a large family such as ours. Reasonable for the accommodations too. Beach close by. Fishing 5 min, golfing 10 min, zip lining 15 min, dining to all tastes. I can keep going, but you got to see for yourself.
5 Minutes to a beautiful Beltzville Lake State Park with a public beach and boat/canoe/kayak rentals, soccer, bathrooms, playgrounds, etc; 15 minutes to historic and scenic Jim Thorpe & Downtown Lehighton with many restaurants and Eco-tourism options; hiking right from the property through a vast network of County/State Park trail system; golfing is minutes away as is skiing and Outlet shopping.
