The Chandler House
Experience European hotel luxury, the elegance of the Mansard Victorian era and the latest digital technology at your fingertips (literally) in every room in this architectural jewel. From the dramatic grand staircase to the elegantly furnished common rooms and bedrooms, Chandler House’s lofty 12-foot ceilings, historic architectural details, lovely garden views, and two porches and patio to soak in the great outdoors will let you travel back in time.
We hope you find the Chandler House a beautiful destination for relaxation and respite. The entire home sleeps 10 guests - perfect for reunions, business retreats, family and/or friends of the bride and groom, and annual Bethlehem events like Celtic Fest, Musikfest, or the Runner's World Half Marathon Festival. The Chandler House can also be rented in various configurations, with individual private bedrooms with luxe common areas available.
Function is important to us, and we have designed each bedroom in the Chandler House to be ultra-comfortable, with a luxurious private bath and all the hotel amenities we love to find: plush terry cloth robes, ceramic ionic hair dryer, and spa toiletries from l’occitaine toiletries including sopas, lotions, shampoo and conditioner and even a special l’occitaine special gift. You’ll slumber soundly on a Westin™ Dream Bed System—the finest hotel mattress we have tested. Additionally, each bedroom features what we look for when we travel: a jewelry safe, an iron and ironing board, plus plenty of private seating space to relax and unwind. We hope you find every convenience to your liking.
The home is detailed to suit both the business traveler and the leisure travel guest. The main kitchen, located on the first floor, is stocked with quality cookware, a Keurig coffeemaker, microwave, toaster, fridge, cooktop and oven. A laundry room and an efficiency kitchen on the second floor offer added convenience.
The finest new technology meets Old World charm throughout The Chandler House. 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, 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.
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 TV hit show, "House of Cards"). The gym also features foam-core flooring, free weights up to 25 lbs., two weight benches and a mirrored wall. During your workout, don't miss the lovely views. Avid runners will find the Historic District a lovely place to run, and access to the Lehigh Canal Towpath is just a mile away.
As old movie buffs, we appreciate the importance of a great TV, and you will also find an excellent TV screen and technology also in each bedroom. We love puzzles, board games and card a game table in the living room is ready for a game of poker, or clever minds to solve the handmade Stave puzzles. 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, from April to October or later, a patio table with seating for eight is perfect for a casual outdoor retreat.
The Chandler House offers three distinctively different bedrooms: the dramatic and spacious Zinzendorf Master Suite, complete with private bath and sitting room; the James Fenimore Cooper Room, with an ethereal draped canopy bed, a comfy window seat and a writer's table; and the Bethlehem Steel Sunroom, a spacious suite with bright paned windows, paneled fabric-draped canopy bed, a Jotul gas fireplace imported from Sweden and a luxe private bath. Each bedroom features all the creature comforts and hotel amenities described above, and offers the ultimate privacy you’re after.
Technology in each bedroom and the sitting room attached to the master bedroom includes a 32-inch Samsung LED Smart TV, Cable TV; Samsung Sound Bar for TV and streaming music; and high-speed Internet suitable for streaming downloads. Watch your favorite programs from your Netflix account or high-definition cable in each bedroom or the living room.
Each bedroom is also equipped with a standing mirror for easy dressing, private bath with claw-foot tub, ample storage, luggage racks, an iron and a steamer, a hotel safe, and nightstands outfitted with USB ports and outlets (one of our beefs when traveling is no access to charge our devices).
