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.

Why Charlie Sproule chose Palmerton
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.

Intro to Jim Thorpe/Pocono Region
Pleasant stopover point both ways on a summer trip between Arlington, VA, and Mid-Hudson Valley of New York: Lehigh Railroad, museums, quaint shops and restaurants, hiking, biking, kayaking and fishing are a few of the diversions.
This home is situated in a great location accessable to trails and restaurants.
Jim Thorpe House in the woods
Communication was awesome. Everything was there that we needed to make our vacation successful.
I wanted a place close to Blue Mountain Resort. The location was great! House is 3 bed rooms, very comfortable home.
I am planning to book again for another event that is going on at Blue Mountain.
Very Peaceful Visit
My daughter recently moved to Pennsylvania so I wanted to visit and spend some time hiking and sight seeing. The bunny house was perfect. We lit a fire and played some cards one evening. We also enjoyed visiting a few of the nearby state parks. It was a wonderful get away.
