About Charlie Sproule
We have a romantic history with Jim Thorpe. Family of ours owned hotels and a bottling company during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. As sometimes happens, the accountant ran away with all the money, so we just get to look at our lost inheritance and think about what might have been. Jim Thorpe was the first place we vacationed together as a couple and was the site of our wedding ceremony on a gorgeous May day. It's a place where our family toiled in the mines and in the sewing factory and raised their kids. It’s where every street had a bar and a church and people you dated had to live within walking distance. Now, Jim Thorpe is about artists, adventure and the art of dining, all of which we believe in and support. We can mountain bike, hike or antique and then dine on American cuisine or attend the strawberry festival at a local church. We like it all.
Charlie Sproule purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Charlie Sproule chose Lower Towamensing
Life in the big city is a noisy adventure, and we craved a bit of solace. It was the mountains that always beckoned, not the shore. Within an hour's drive, we are happily parked in front of our home, feeling miles away from the bustling life we left behind. We enjoy the secluded feel to the place, while knowing that we are just a few minutes away from grocery stores, dining, drive-in movies, hiking, and dozens of other activities.
What makes this Cottage unique
Star-gazing while sitting on our back porch, after a meal made of ingredients supplied by local farm stands cannot be beat. Driving 10 minutes to Beltzville Lake and having to choose between a dozen or so amazing hikes is a delight. Running down country roads past horse farms and seeing the woods in their fall glory is beyond words.
Sports & Adventure Activities
Excellent value, great owner
GREAT host beautiful house
Convenient and Easy
I've stayed at the cottage many times in different seasons and it is always great. It is warm and cozy in the winter and was pleasant and cool this August. Unfortunately, a bit of rain meant I didn't really get to use the back deck, which is lovely and looks out on the woods. The kitchen is well-equipped and there are always a few staples available in the fridge--a real boon when only there for a few days, but wanting to cook. The bathrooms are small, but functional. This is a nice place to stay with family. The owners are easy to work with and are very responsive.
Great cottage...simple and homey!
Charlie and Margaret have a lovely cottage close to Jim Thorpe and other area attractions yet far enough removed that you have a serene setting to come "home" to. Will definitely return!
It was very comfortable and the hosts were charming and very accomodating
The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was spacious, and the living area was cozy and delightful. I would definitely recommend this as a great place to stay!
Awesome house!! I was a little stressed at first because I was booking last minute and the response time was not fast. However, I found out they own a restaurant and they were in busy season. After that I did get all the info. It was an amazing wknd and the cottage was perfect! As you notice they basically have all five stars and it stands true.
