The Chandler House
The Chandler House is the Lehigh Valley’s only five-star luxury accommodations. Built in 1868, it seamlessly combines the old and the modern. What could be better than enjoying the Christmas City from your own historic home? It is located centrally to Christkindlmarkt, downtown shopping, restaurants, the Sands, universities, Steelstacks, Musikfest, Celtic Fest, Moravian National Historic District and all the city has to offer.
In the living room, a Moravian tile fireplace is a central design accent. It’s topped with a 65-inch Samsung LED Smart TV with cable TV DVD/CD player, Apple TV with more than 400 movies and TV shows, Samsung Imaging and Definitive Technologies Surround Sound for TV and streaming music. Relax, as the super-comfy couch is also a pull-out queen-size sleeper bed to accommodate an extra guest. The room features a game table with card games, Stave puzzles and board games.
On premises is a high-functioning gym with private entrance. Reach your fitness goals with the ProCore AMT full-stride commercial-grade all-muscle elliptical trainer, two Pro-Fitness commercial spin bikes and a classic black walnut Water Rower rowing machine (as seen on the hit TV show “House of Cards”). The gym also features foam-core flooring, free weights up to 25 pounds, two weight benches and a mirrored wall. During your workout, don't miss the lovely views.
Love the outdoors? There’s a covered wrap front porch and a cozy back porch. The lull of a fountain beckons a backyard garden visitor, and when weather permits, a patio table with seating for eight is perfect for a casual outdoor retreat.
At the end of the day, handmade Moravian star chocolates from Bethlehem’s Chocolate Lab wish you sweet dreams.

Mary Ellen and Jay believe in providing guests with the 5-Star Luxury Experience! We are so proud of this review from an executive at an international corporation. Her review encapsulates our high goal for all of our guests.
“Jay and Mary Ellen were beyond ideal hosts. Their communication was outstanding before our trip even began. The accommodations were just as pictured, and more! They have kept the charm of the old house, but have made necessary updates where appropriate (shower, kitchen, etc.). Their attention to detail is truly tangible from the moment you walk through the door through the moment when you slip into bed at night. Side note: their bed sheets are AMAZING. A colleague and I were in the area for a week-long work trip and this was the first time we have used AirBnB for our accommodations. We are SO glad we did and will definitely continue to use one of J and ME's properties in the future. These are two very genuine people with a very high standard of hospitality. I fully recommend staying here!”
