About the property

1 bedroom apartment close to downtown Jim Thorpe

The town of Jim Thorpe is an awesome place to visit - it has it all! Beautiful Historic downtown surrounded by picturesque mountains with the fast moving Lehigh River cutting through at the edge of town. The downtown has several very nice restaurants, a couple of great pubs, about 40 shops of all kinds, plus historic and cultural attractions such as Asa Packer mansion, the old Mauch Chunk jailhouse, train rides through the Lehigh Gorge, the Opera House with live music every weekend, plus the historic Eckleys Miners' Village close by. There are hiking and biking trails nearby, a lake just a few miles above town, and great skiing at Blue Mountain, Big Boulder and Jack Frost.

This is a weekend getaway apartment located just one block from the Lehigh River and fifteen minute walk into historic downtown Jim Thorpe. The apartment is equipped with a queen size bed, a sleeper sofa, gas fireplace (cold months only), basic cable TV, a DVD player, WIFI, new kitchen, rustic living room and new bathroom. There is a shaded brick courtyard in the back to relax outside. The apartment also has original artwork hanging on the walls painted by the owner. Painting reproductions are for sale downtown at the Bear Appetite Cafe and the owners original tee shirts designs for sale at the Mauch Chunk 5 &10 located on Broadway and Horizon Gifts located where Race street and Broadway meet.

Check in - Anytime after 3:00pm and Check out - by 11:00am

Couldn't be any better!

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a quick weekend getaway in the Poconos which was close to a town and a ski resort at the same time. I couldn't have picked a more perfect place since it was just across the river from downtown Jim Thorpe and only 25-30 min from Blue Mountain. The apartment was nice and cozy and well stocked! I wouldn't have mind just staying there all day cozied up with a warm blanket! I'm definitely coming back in the summertime!

The property was very nice and comfortable. The area was peaceful and a perfect distance from the main business district and attractions. We had a great time and would definitely stay there again.

Stephen was super accommodating and helpful! House was so cozy and had everything we needed- sheets, towels, and a lovely fireplace! Perfect for a small family of 3. Totally coming back again. And it's 12 miles to Blue Mtn.

A comfortable stay!

  • 4 of 5

Although we were initially surprised that we were not actually staying in the downtown area of Jim Thorpe, it was a blessing in disguise. Since we had some snow, we're certain the parking situation would have been a mess down town, and since this place was within walking distance from the grocery store, and also a very short (5 minute) drive to downtown Jim Thorpe, it was actually perfect for us. It was a cozy 1 bedroom place with good heating. (gas fireplace and units in each room kept us very warm. Kitchen had everything we needed as we ate breakfast and lunch in. Bed was comfortable. Pull-out was fine for the kids. We would recommend staying here if it's just two of you or a small family of 4 like ours. Steve was attentive to emails and phone calls about local services. Thanks for a nice stay!

Cozy setting in Jim Thorpe

  • 5 of 5

The Jim Thorpe Weekender is the perfect size and location for a quick weekend getaway! Over the bridge from the downtown shopping area, it is in a great location to walk downtown when the weather is nice! The apartment is the perfect size for two people (but has a pull out sleeper sofa for more). Everything we needed was there - coffee pot, linens, towels, etc. The gas fireplace made the winter nights nice and toasty! Steve and his wife were very welcoming and great at communicating before and during our stay - answering questions and providing recommendations for places to eat, shop, and visit! We plan to stay here again the next time we are in the area! Thank you!
