Whether your loved one is a patient or you’re receiving care yourself, our goal remains the same: to offer you comfortable accommodations and a supportive environment that allows you to focus on healing.

Our house is located at 1260 S. Cedar Crest Blvd., Allentown, Pa. 18105. We are on the campus of LVH–Cedar Crest in Salisbury Township, directly off I-78 (Route 309) at Exit 55 (Cedar Crest Boulevard). You'll find us at the rear (south side) of the campus, on a wooded lot across from the hospital's emergency room.

We are a member of the Healthcare Hospitality Network (HHN), a nationwide network of more than 200 not-for-profit, family lodging facilities that offer warm, caring support to more than a quarter of a million people each year.
