About the Property
3 Bedroom, 1.5 Bathroom, outdoor deck, sleeps six, in Scenic Jim Thorpe
We invite you to stay in our spacious and comfortable home that sleeps six guests in three bedrooms, featuring two Queen beds, and one Full bed.
From original 10ft polished wood pillars, to the original wood staircase, still remain from the time period when craftsmanship was important, when Asa Packer was one of the wealthiest men in America, and Mauch Chunk a haven for the region's rich and powerful!
This classically- inspired Townhouse features a spacious and welcoming living area 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, hot chocolate, S&P, spices, oil as an extra convenience, so you know your 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, and do some serious grillin'! By the way...Jim Thorpe Market is just minutes away [they're well known for fresh meats!].
Also included our private, off- street parking lot for six vehicles...a Jim Thorpe rarity, when most other vacation rentals make you hunt for a scarce spot on the street! 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 18th century home, conveniently located in the town of Jim Thorpe on North Street, close enough to be in the thick of all the fun and adventure, minutes to shopping, pubs and restaurants....yet away from the congestion and traffic!
***** We are incredibly pleased to be a lodging partner with Blue Mountain Ski Resort. Please inquire on our Absolute Best All- Day Discount Lift Tickets to Blue Mountain and go direct to the slope!*****

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. We enjoy biking, hiking, rafting the Lehigh River, skiing and listening to live music at the Opera House and Penn's Peak concert venue.
Why the Owner Chose Jim Thorpe, PA, USA:
This classically inspired townhouse was built for America's newly rich industrial barons, in the late 18th 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 Camp On North.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Camp On North 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. Camp On North ideally located in the boro of Jim Thorpe and is very close to the historic district, just three minutes over the new bridge! Stay at our " Camp" located on North street, on the "Highway to Adventure" in the Poconos! ***** We are pleased to announce our Lodging Partnership with Blue Mountain Ski Resort***** Please inquire about our Absolute Best All-Day Discount Lift Tickets to Blue Mountain Ski Resort *****
