Jim Thorpe

Established in 1818 as Mauch Chunk, it was later named Jim Thorpe after the legendary Native American athlete. Here entrepreneurs led by Josiah White formed the Lehigh Coal & Navigation Company in the 1820s and shipped countless tons of anthracite coal and other goods to market via the Lehigh and Delaware Canals. The town grew in importance when it was named Carbon County’s seat in 1843.

Its steep hillsides, narrow streets, and terraced gardens earned the town its nickname “The Switzerland of America.” The beauty of this region has beckoned people for almost two centuries. Today, the restored Old Mauch Chunk Railroad Station serves at the hub of the town offering visitor services and train rides into Lehigh Gorge. The Mauch Chunk Opera House presents live theater and music. Visit the home of Asa Packer, founder of Lehigh University. Tour the Old Carbon County Jail, once occupied by the Molly Maguires - the alleged Irish mining organization seeking better working conditions.

Super dirty property in need of a serious cleaning.

  • 1 of 5

This property was pretty run down, which was to be expected based on its reasonable rate for the weekend. We were willing to deal with that because it was within walking distance to downtown Jim Thorpe. The problem with this property is how dirty and disgusting it was. The exterior border of all the rooms had a pretty decent layer of hair and dirt, as if someone ran a vacuum cleaner through the middle of each room and considered it done. On top of that, there were so many dead bugs, and random package wrappers behind doors and even on the decorative pillows of one of the beds. There was even a used bandaid laying on a shelf in one of the rooms. The knobs on the stove were so sticky and caked in dirt/old food, that it was necessary to wash our hands any time we turned on the stove. There were dirty, used paper towels inside the microwave and the counters were sticky. At least one of the cabinets was full of ants. The only reason that we didn’t leave as soon as we arrived was because we couldn’t afford to lose our money on the rental. We explained the state of the rental to the owner after leaving and he refused to refund the cleaning fee that we were forced to pay. I’m certain that the cleaning fee from the visitors before us could not have gone to an actual cleaning of this house. Jim Thorpe was a wonderful town to visit and we loved the hiking and exploring that we did. Next time we will definitely stay somewhere else.

Owner's Response: I been renting this home for 2 years now and I have had very good reviews. The house is clean and well maintained. I just put a new BBQ and the deck is only a year and a half old. For all who read this review the only time I received a complaint is when this tentant checked out and they wanted money back. I also sent a message saying I hoPoe you are having a nice stay. And they never complained then either. I asked why didn't you call me when you first got there. I would have sent the cleaning person right over. They said they did not feel like talking to a cleaning person. But the still stayed the fullime. I spoke to the cleaning person and she assured me that the house was clean. You are always able to reach me with any problems and I will always be right on top of it to make you hapoy. But I need to know this at the beginning of the stay not after you leave and are asking for money back. If I rent a place and was not happy I would certainty have ccomplained. This review is far worst then what she sent to me when asking for money back. Please read all other reviews.

Great weekend getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Johns house. The house was just as described. We came up for the St Patrick’s Day Parade. John was quick to get back to us with our concerns. House is very clean and comfy. Would definitely rent here again. Great time with great friends!

The Cozy House is Cozy

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. House had everything we needed. It was single degree weather but the house was very cozy. Only negatives were the mattress on the futon dipped horribly in the middle. I reported it to the owner and said he would replace. The key box DOES NOT work. Owner does have alternate way to enter house, but it took me over an hour to get in touch with him to get information on the alternate way in. I was concerned about street parking only but it was never a problem!!

Would not stay here again

  • 2 of 5

This house was tidy and had plenty of room for our family of four (although one of the bedrooms does not have a door). The beds were reasonably comfortable. The main issue that we noticed as soon as we opened the door was the smell. It seemed to be a mix of smoke, must, and air fresheners and was overwhelming to us. We ended up staying just one night instead of two because of the smell and the owner of the house did not give us any refund. Afterward the owner came to the house and said he did not notice any smell. However, there were at least 8 air fresheners in the house so it seems that they were trying to improve the smell (although we really dislike the smell of air fresheners). Additionally, the carpets are thin and loud vehicles are heard clearly though the walls. We did not use the kitchen so cannot comment on that. The further you go up the hill away from the center of Jim Thorpe, the more run down the houses are, fyi.
