Recent Jim Thorpe reviews

  • Just perfect

    "We chose this house for a reunion of 8 friends and it could not have been a better choice. The house looks even better in person than it does in the photos. The view from the deck during October is breathtaking! The house itself had everything we could have needed. Nancy and Jack were very accommodating with the many questions I had as our group organizer. If we need a place near Jim Thorpe again, I would not hesitate to visit the Sharp Mountain Home again - book it; you will love it!!"

  • Better than a Hilton

    "All the conveniences of Jim Thorpe at your doorstep. Spacious rooms and it was like having a whole house detailed! (very clean). The offstreet parking was a big plus. Myself ands three friends spent four nights here and had a time of our life; we went kayaking (Bob loaned me his kayak, what a friend; I just met him!), we ziplined, toured a jail, and took several bike trips on the trails. I also would like to add that Jennifer called me to ensure we arrived safely according to our ETA. I'm still overwhelmed with the nature that surrounded us, truely Gods country. Thank you so much:) The Bucket List Brigade"

  • Great Family Getaway

    "This neat chalet was nestled in a remote wooded area and was a perfect getaway for our two families. We enjoyed the quiet atmosphere of the woods. This house had many amenities for a great price. We enjoyed the decks, the new outdoor grill and outdoor fire pit and the pool table! We were centrally located to many activities in the area that pleased our families with young teens. The owners were very accommodating when needed. What a huge improvement it will be once the exit/entrance on the main route to the area is completed. We truly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this beautiful chalet to others!"

  • Really nice!

    "It really is just like in the photos. Access and parking in the back. Beautifully maintained, clean and very comfortable. Beds were more comfortable than home and there were only 4 of us so we had lots of room to spread out. Washing machine was extremely convenient and location in the town is perfect. The owner and manager both provided wonderful customer service. The town closes down really early during the week, so the kitchen was great. And the bike and hike trails are worth the trip. I would go back, and definitely recommend."

Jim Thorpe Travel Tips

Spending Time in Jim Thorpe Cabins

If you've never been to Jim Thorpe Pennsylvania, you are missing out on a fun little town. It lacks the hustle and bustle of the bigger cities, it is clean and friendly, and it was voted one of the best towns in the country for a good time. This pretty much explains why both Jim Thorpe cabins and Jim Thorpe house rentals are extremely popular [http://www.vrbo.com/vacation-rentals/usa/pennsylvania/northeastern-mountains/poconos Poconos vacation rentals]]. Not only do both options allow you to take in the night life of Jim Thorpe, they also keep you close enough to the natural surroundings that you can always find a great adventure out of doors.

A Small Town Area with Big Culture

Jim Thorpe is part of a region that only has around 300,000 people in it. That's an entire region, whereas most big cities can compact millions of people into a far smaller area. When you check out Jim Thorpe house rentals, though, you won't just notice a quiet town. You'll notice they have natural wonders like their own butterfly sanctuary, and historic sites like the home of Asa Packer in nearby Mauch Chunk—built by railroad philanthropist Asa Packer in 1861, its 11,000 square feet only cost $14,000. Back in Jim Thorpe, a thriving arts community keeps culture alive, including with its annual Arts Odyssey and open art studio tours.

Back to Nature

History and culture aren't everything, of course. You want a fun experience right now. Bring on the mountain trails, the crisp air you'll never find in a big city, and enough whitewater rafting for three companies to offer it. How often can you go out into a wooded area that isn't a park? With Jim Thorpe cabins, the woods are just a little ways off in the Lentz Trail. Take a walk (or a hike) on the wild side.
