Bethlehem, PA (Immediate Release) — When the Chandler House opens with a swanky cocktail party for more than 100 guests on Wed., June 28th, 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., the historic property at 258 East Market Street, will set a new standard for lodging in the Lehigh Valley — and particularly within Bethlehem’s historic district, which thousands of travelers visit each year.
“We believe there is no place like having your own home away from home when traveling, and our intent at Dr. & Sir is to preserve homes and green space in the Historic Bethlehem district. We believe such properties make beautiful accommodations that allow guests to experience firsthand the area’s history,” says Mary Ellen Williams, DO, who is CEO and co-owner of Dr. & Sir LLC, proprietors of the new Chandler House. Dr. Williams and her husband are longtime residents of the historic neighborhood.
“We offer lodging through Airbnb, and also maintain a selection of premiere historic rentals for short- and long-term leasing,” she explains.
The Chandler House was built in 1868 in the Mansard Victorian style, and as an AirBnB, it will provide five-star European luxury accommodations and amenities. The location includes three spacious bedrooms, each with a private bath, lofty 12-foot ceilings, historic architectural details, lovely garden views, and two porches and a patio to soak in the great outdoors. Additionally, every room in this architectural jewel has the latest digital technology. Plush robes, towels, L’Occitane en Provence toiletries are just some of the other amenities provided.
From the dramatic grand staircase to the elegantly furnished common rooms and bedrooms, the entire home sleeps up to 10 guests — the perfect size for reunions, business retreats, family and/or friends of the bride and groom, as well as groups attending 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.
“We believe in keeping our properties five-star “hotel clean” and design them for the ultimate in comfort, convenience and aesthetics,” adds Williams.
