A quiet oasis in the heart of Lehigh Valley, PA.
Enjoy a unique stay in a private bedroom on our micro-farm.
Originally built in 1886 as a gentleman's farm for a prominent physician, now fully restored and modernized while keeping the original character, Larken Springs Farm is a quiet oasis in the heart of the Lehigh Valley.
Two bedrooms are available year-round. Each has a queen size bed and comfortable furnishings. Both rooms share a modern bath with separate shower and spa tub. One of the rooms also has a sitting room that contains a desk and daybed with twin mattress.
In the warmer months we can accommodate additional guests in the unheated summer kitchen at the rear of the house. Upstairs is bedroom with queen bed. Downstairs we can set up a queen size air mattress if needed.
The rooms are not quite as well appointed as the rest of the house, but they do allow for groups of up to 9.
Other rooms accessible to our guests include a full gourmet kitchen and dining room that seats (email hidden) room with cable television and a quiet parlor for relaxing after a hectic day.
Outside are many seating areas and gardens to wander through. The pool area has dining tables and lounge chairs for your further relaxation. We grow most of our own fruits and vegetables here on the property and have approximately 60 chickens that free range on the grounds and provide the best eggs you've ever tasted, available each morning for your breakfast. In July 2012, we added two Nigerian Dwarf Goat doelings, followed by 3 more in the fall of 2013. These beautiful girls will one day provide milk and cheese.
When was the last time you awoke to a rooster crowing?
To clarify, this is a bed and breakfast. We live here with our two beagles, one shy cat, 5 goats and many chickens. We rent 3 bedrooms that share a large private bathroom. The kitchen/dining room, living rooms and outside spaces are all available for guests' use.
Though the farmette feels miles away from the civilized world, we're actually very close to all the Lehigh Valley has to offer:
The new Sands Casino in Bethlehem is less than 5 miles away.
The beautiful new Arts Quest Steel Stacks complex is 6 miles away.
The Rail Trail hiking and biking path is within walking distance and offers miles of pathways along the old rail lines connecting the small towns of the Lehigh Valley.
Also a short drive:
Antiquing in Quakertown
Hiking/biking along the Delaware River in Bucks Co.
The charming downtowns of Easton and Allentown
In 75 minutes you can be in New York City or Center City Philadelphia. .

What a lovely place!
While planning to go skiing in the Poconos over Valentine's Day weekend, I realized that the hotels near Camelback were not my idea of a romantic getaway. Based on the great Airbnb reviews, I decided to book two nights at Ken and Larry's. It is really charming and welcoming. The house is really cute, our room was very spacious and decorated with great taste (as is the entire house). We also had our own bathroom. Ken and Larry were very hospitable, helpful and discrete hosts. Breakfast with farm eggs (from their own chickens) and home made jam/bread was also included, and quite tasty! The kitchen is really something and you can see they like to cook and entertain. I would highly recommend the place, and am planning to go back during the late spring/summer time to see their garden and enjoy a few nice evenings.
5-star place and hosts!!!
Staying at Ken and Larry's place was very restful and a great departure from a normal hotel for business travel. This is the experience you want when you stay through Airbnb. This is a unique, quality location set in a rural area but very close to restaurants (pubs) and several nearby towns. The accommodations were spot on with everything a traveler would need.
The home is calm, well appointed and run by two very interesting and pleasant hosts. And the farm fresh eggs were most appreciated.
I would not change a thing and if you are looking for a great Airbnb experience, this is a great one. 5 Star hosts!
Our first experience with Airbnb could not have been better! From the charming town to gorgeous farm, Ken and Larry truly have an amazing home. The hospitality, accommodations, and ambiance created an experience unparalleled by any hotel or other Bed & Breakfasts.
Though our stay was brief, we found the farm to be quiet and peaceful, and the house open to us for our personal enjoyment. We slept soundly and awoke to the sunrise coming in through the window and the roosters crowing. [Though previous reviews encouraged us to use the provided ear plugs, we actually enjoyed hearing the roosters. It was an experience we had not encountered before and we recommend embracing it to others!]
We very much enjoyed our time with Ken and Larry, who were extremely welcoming and knowledgeable about things to see and do. We only wish we'd had more time!
We only stayed for one night, but are already considering a trip back just to stay at the farm and explore the surrounding area.
Spent two nights at Country Comfort bnb. We arrived late and Ken was very accommodating. The home was filled with fun things to look at and a fabulous kitchen. The bed and hall bath were very comfortable. Ken has provided everything one could possibly want including some good recommendations for things to do in the area. Definitely recommend.
It was such a lovely place. Four of us had a blast cooking steak for dinner and taking pictures with lovely goats. Ken and his partner were welcoming and their house was beutifully decorated. Definitely recommend this place if you need to stay around allentown.
We came to Hellertown for a wedding and we were looking for a place where we could be close to the wedding and that would allow our dog and this place worked perfectly. We had a lovely stay. It was a great place to relax, enjoy the fall colors, and take nice walks. The fresh eggs, french pressed coffee and homemade jams were a special treat. We wished we could have stayed longer. We would definitely stay there again.
The home was charming and the rooms perfect for us. The hosts had a breakfast area set up that had everything you need and the bedroom and bathroom were clean and comfortable. The hosts have decorated their home beautifully. I would definitely recommend staying here, especially if you enjoy animals.
A quiet oasis in the heart of the Lehigh Valley.
We bought this place as a weekend getaway and quickly decided to escape the city and live here full-time.
After restoring the house and surrounding gardens we began to create a small farm to feed ourselves and our guests. We raise heirloom fruits and vegetables without pesticides and have a flock of pasture-raised chickens for eggs. Both avid cooks, we love to entertain.
