About the Property

Spacious 3 Bedroom, 1.5 Bath, outdoor deck, sleeps eight, private parking

Experience history with a stay in the Glen Onoko Guesthouse, built in the boom year of 1870 when coal was king and tourism so impressive, Mauch Chunk (our town name before we became Jim Thorpe) was second only to to Niagara Falls! Original polished wood pillars, wood staircase, and old world woodwork remain from the time period when craftsmanship was an important trade, when Asa Packer was one of the wealthiest men in America, and Mauch Chunk a haven for the region's rich and powerful!

Welcome to the Glen Onoko Guesthouse, ( formerly known as Camp On North), that sleeps eight, with three bedrooms, with two Queen beds, and one Full bed. Every room has an overhead ceiling fan to keep you cool.
This Victorian style Townhouse features welcoming living areas on two floors, in which guests can cook on- site in a modern kitchen with ceramic sink, stainless appliances, ice maker... all the conveniences you expect. We even provide coffee, tea, creamer, spices, sugar, oil as an extra convenience, for your stay in your 'Home Away From Home'!

Relax after your day of adventure on the new outdoor sun deck and private courtyard featuring a wrought iron table and chairs, BBQ propane grill ready for you to fire up. By the way...Jim Thorpe Market is just minutes away [they're well known for fresh meats!].

This house comes with private, off- street parking lot for eight vehicles...a Jim Thorpe rarity. We even have a laundry room, and dry ample storage for outdoor gear too!

Make your lodging reservations to personally experience the history, architecture and personality of our historic 19th century home, conveniently located in the town of Jim Thorpe.
Walk next door to the town's only full service salon and be pampered with a massage, manicure, pedicure, or new hairstyle! Walk 2 blocks to Tommy's Subs for a take out sandwich, or walk 2 blocks to the East Mauch Chunk Eatery for a full breakfast!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

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!
