Perfect Jim Thorpe get-a-way!

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing! We went for a single overnight stay after rafting the river. Perfectly located walking distance from down town and from the more adventurous activities along the river.

The owners stopped by and they were incredibly nice and generous to invite us to a party they were headed to.

Iwould highly recomend this listing!

Nice quiet part of town

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at the comfy little apartment. Located close to the grocery down over the hill and close to Jim Thorpe activities. Is within walking distance but it is across the bridge and down the hill so i recommend driving as you will walk around town. We enjoyed the back patio which was shaded. Would stay again if we ever went back.

Great Place in Jim Thorpe!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for me and my two small kids! We spent a week here visiting friends and sight seeing. My kids were so comfortable they declared they did not want to leave! This location is perfect! Being on the quiet side of town saves you from what can be a parking and traffic headache downtown. The walk across the new bridge into town is easy and quick, affords great views of the mountains and the Gorge (and if you really want to drive over, the town lot is only $5 for the day). The cottage is exactly how it looks in the photos, and some of the lovely paintings were done by the owner! It was very easy to relax and kick back in between adventures, make breakfast and chill out. Sofas and sofa bed were comfortable as was the master bed. There is also a cute brick patio out back to enjoy! This would also be a great choice for a couples getaway as well. Thanks for a great stay! We will definitely be back!

Better than a hotel!

  • 5 of 5

The Jim Thorpe Weekender was exactly what we were hoping for during our stay. There is one bedroom with a comfortable bed and the sofa in the living room pulls out which is also comfortable. There were four of us staying and the space didn't feel cramped at all. The location was also great. About a 15 minute walk to downtown which has many shops, food, bars and the train station. There was also a tasty breakfast spot four blocks up the street at "East Mauch Chunk Eatery" where we ate Sunday morning.

One side note since I couldn't find much information about this ahead of time. We were in town to see a concert at Penn's Peak and although we were able to use Uber to and from the venue, the available Uber drivers were very low. On our way to the show Uber had no drivers available for about a 20 minute period around 5pm. A couple people at Penn's Peak also said there is limited cab service in the area.

If you are looking for a place to stay in Jim Thorpe I would highly recommend staying here!

Like home !

  • 5 of 5

Our host was very helpful and offered his assistance for any questions we might have about his place and the Jim Thorpe area. Our apartment was very thoughtfully appointed. There was even food in the fridge and drinking water provided. It was very clean and comfortable and I sure wish we could have stayed longer. Thanks Steve !!
