About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Fine restaurants, outdoor activities like swimming, biking, rafting, small unique shops, art galleries- Jim Thorpe has it all. This is a family friendly town with lots to do in the area. Only hours from Philadelphia and New York it is not difficult to get to.

Close to lots of fun things to do in town.

This house is located right in Jim Thorpe on the main street, but with off-street parking so you don't have to worry about finding a spot for your car. Minutes from the varied restaurants of Jim Thorpe, you have a choice to cook your self in our full equipped kitchen or go out for a delicious dinner cooked by someone else. It is a 15 minute walk to the downtown shops and museums of Jim Thorpe.

Or get into the great outdoors.

Just 3 miles by car is Mauch Chunk Lake with swimming and a lovely beach, boating and fishing on the lake, and hiking around the lake. This lake is enjoyable in all seasons. Or jump on your bicycle and join up with the Switchback Trail just minutes from the property. Rafting is available down on the Lehigh River which runs right through the heart of Jim Thorpe. Or take a hike to Glen Enoko, a short drive from town and the property where you will stay. In winter we are just a short drive from 3 ski areas- Blue Mountain, Jack Frost, or Big Boulder. And if you want to see the lovely leaves in the fall they are all around in whatever direction you might turn.

About Jennifer Dages

We are a entrepreneurial family who are involved in real estate and have several other side businesses. We have 4 children and live next door to the property.

Jennifer Dages purchased this house in 2003

Why Jennifer Dages chose Jim Thorpe

Our house is comfortable and spacious and just right for your weekend get-away with friends or family. It is located just enough to town that you can easily walk to downtown attractions, but there is mountain behind and in front of the house so you don't have that in town crowded feeling.

What makes this house unique

We offer a healthy living weekend which includes food prepared according to special dietary accomodations, nutritional seminars, hiking, massage, and a nutritional consult.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The owners, Jennifer and Bob, were very welcoming. They live right next door and were available for any questions or troubles. House was in good condition and there was lots to do around town. Driveway could easily fit 2-3 cars which was great and every room had A/C. Overall the experience was excellent and I would definitely rent from them again.

Great Accomodations in Picturesque Town

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and spacious home. Very affordable. Plenty of room for the 5 of us. Lots to do in town - all within walking distance. We didn't realize how fortunate we were to have private parking for 2 vehicles. Perfect for our Girl"s Weekend!

I couldn’t be happier with this accommodation. The rooms are much bigger then they appear in the photos, the kitchen is very well appointed with just about every type of utensil and cooking gadget you would need, and there are three tables to help larger groups. The beds are comfortable, the water pressure is good, and there are dvds and vhs tapes for the VCR & DVD player.

The house is about 1/2 mile from down town, and that might be my favorite part. It was the perfect walking distance to get a few steps in yet still be so

Close to the action.

Jennifer was very responsive to all of my questions, and very understanding and accommodating when I needed to move my reservation. We visited Jim Thorpe on an “off” weekend, though there was still so much to do. I can’t wait to go back! And when I do, I will stay here again.

Close to downtown Jim Thorpe

Super convenient to downtown Jim Thorpe, off street parking, comfortable beds and the towels and chocolates were a nice touch. The owner was very accommodating and willing to work with us.

Well located mountain home.

  • 4 of 5

We came in for the Spartan race in Palmerton. The location was perfect. A quick trip to parking in the morning. And the homes locstion in Jon Thorpe was a walk to enough restaurants to have choices. The house was clean and comfortable. We had a great time!
