About the owner: My career in retail led me to this charming building, with a lovely storefront with double display windows. I met my husband Mark, in Jim Thorpe, when he and his family owned and operated The Hotel Switzerland. We have been in the hospitality business for decades and are very knowledgeable about the area. I am also a certified master gardener, with many hours of volunteer work in the community. I personally love the town for its quiet atmosphere, beautiful scenery, and fresh, clean air. Spending time in nature with walks in the woods gives me more energy, and a sense of relaxation.
Why the Owner Chose Jim Thorpe, PA, USA:
This classically inspired townhouse was built for America's newly rich industrial barons, in the late 19th century. Elements of the decor remain, but the space that left me gasping was the lobby, with the colossal polished wood pillars, and 10 ft ceilings! The building was rescued by my husband, Mark, and renovated to the highest of standards. The commercial space has been a bakery, a floral shop, a gift shop and a green grocer dating back to 1870. Starting from the architecture of this building, and going right through to the necessary furniture and objects, it is our goal to have our guests feel comfortable and happy with a stay at the Glen Onoko Guesthouse.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Our vacation rental is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts with its close location to the entrance of the Lehigh Gorge State Park, just six blocks from our doorstep. Pedal the 25 miles of the D & L trail along the Lehigh River, or hike the Glen Onoko Falls Trail. Plan a whitewater rafting expedition, timed to the areas dam releases. Spend a day at Hickory Run State Park Hawk Falls Trail. Our townhouse offers a prime location for you and your family to experience the adventure, nature, dining and shopping in Jim Thorpe. Book our rental for a weekend, a week or longer. A seven minute walk will take you to the town's best dive bar! It's where the locals go! Sunday Brunch at Union Public House 11-3 for hearty brunch specials, mimosas for $2.50. The Best Bloody Mary $4.00 - get there early - sometimes there's a line out the door!
