About the Property

New York Style Loft In Historic Town, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)

The Loft is a vacation rental apartment located in a historic 18th Century factory building in Jim Thorpe, PA. The stone building also houses an art gallery. Jim Thorpe is a year-round, family-friendly vacation destination, offering visitors opportunities to participate in outdoor sports, shopping and cultural activities. The Washington Post described the building as, “Beautifully rebuilt and completely contemporary, it feels urban enough to be in New York or London.”

The Loft is a 2000 sq. ft., two-bedroom apartment. The main bedroom features a queen-sized bed, and the sleeping loft has three twin-sized beds along with a queen sized bed.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I am an avid runner and cyclist and the mother of two young children. My husband is an artist who also has his studio in the building where we also run an art gallery and full service restaurant (currently on hiatus).

Why the Owner Chose Jim Thorpe, PA, USA:
I first visited Jim Thorpe on a weekend get away from New York City in 1998 and immediately fell in love with the town - its proximity to New York and Philadelphia was perfect for a weekend retreat and I bought a small weekend house. A number of years later, my artist husband was looking for studio space and we purchased a 15,000 sq. ft. former wireworks factory and spent six years fixing up the building. As an avid runner, the beautiful mountain trails still hold a fascination for me every time I go out. This town is perfect to raise a family - there is an old fashioned candy store, a classic 5&10 and easy access to the Lehigh River and a recreational lake park, skiing and cycling.

The Unique Benefits at this Mill:
Outdoor lovers can access an extensive trail system connecting a quarter-mile from the loft to enjoy bicycling, running, hiking, or cross-country skiing. The nearby Lehigh River also provides access for whitewater rafting, kayaking and fishing through a number of outfitters. Eclectic shops, museums and the Mauch Chunk Opera House are all within walking distance from the property. Other nearby activities include swimming, fishing and boating at the beautiful Mauch Chunk Lake Park. During the each season, visitors can enjoy a number of the annual festivals including the Fall Foliage Weekends, Jim Thorpe Birthday Celebration, Earth Day, Olde Time Christmas, Winterfest and the Burlesque Festival.
