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
The property is nicely furnished with comfortable accomodations for exploring the Jim Thorpe area. We recently spent 3 nights Oct. 28th thru 30th. The rental is above and across the river from the historic Jim Thorpe district. While the walk is not difficult, it is about a 15 minute journey across the new 209 bridge down into town ... a desirable option during the busy weekend daytime hours. After 5 pm, driving is preferred as parking becomes more available and is then free of charge as well. Renting from Steve was a great experience. We were lucky to meet him during our stay ... a great person, friendly, and very helpful. He provides an abundance of information about the property prior to arrival and suggests things to do in the area. Additionally, he has numerous brochures and booklets in the apartment for additional points of interest and local history that were very interesting. The property itself is nicely updated, clean, and comfortable. Linens and bath towels were obviously freshly laundered. The base board heaters and gas fireplace provide ample heat, but take just a little adjustment in each room to regulate the temperature level properly. The kitchen has adequate utensils and table service to allow enjoying some meals at the apartment, and the local market just down the hill provides a good variety of groceries to quickly stock the refrigerator. The historic district, Lehigh Gorge Railway, Glen Onoko State Park, Mauch Chunk Opera House, and Packard House are all worth exploring as well as the biking/hiking experiences. The Union Publick House bar just a block away is also a fine stop for a drink and daily meal specials. We would definitely recommend this rental!
We loved our stay at the weekender! It was perfect for our stay. Clean comfortable and very affordable. Not far from all the attractions of Jim Thorpe, but also on a quiet street. We loved it!
Really enjoyed our stay. Conveniently located to Jim Thorpe downtown and close. Highly recommended. Nice kitchen but did not use. Would definitely stay here again.
The property is close to downtown and walkable in 15 minutes. The living room furniture is comfortable, the bed is very comfortable, making for good sleeping after a busy day of walking and sightseeing. The kitchen has a gorgeous gas stove and everything you would need. Overall, it is a perfect place for those looking for other than hotel experience. Hope to return!
Thank you so kindly for having me here. Steve Allen is a brilliant artist whom was so easy to talk to and his property was absolutely magickal to find peace and joy! I shall certainly be back!
This has become our secret getaway, we have stayed here twice and we will be back. Apartment is always clean and feels like home Steve and his family do a great job!
