Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: As a former merchandise manager of a large retail store, I have been using my expertise to combine style and comfort for the Camp on North Townhouse. A decor of modern and antique furniture style awaits you and your guests. My career in retail led me to this charming building, with 1280 Sq Ft of commercial space currently "Rent for Event" for fifty guests or less. 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 strolls in the woods for better health and lower stress levels gives me more energy, and a sense of relaxation. Jim Thorpe is a great place to enjoy the outdoors with rich outdoor recreation. I like to cross-country ski on the D & L trail in the winter, and hike the Glen Onoko Falls trail in spring. The Fall Foliage Festival brings thousands of tourists to the town for leaf- peeking. The Olde Time Christmas festival brings good cheer to all. I am an active member of the Jim Thorpe Tourism Agency, with a vested interest in the town of Jim Thorpe.

Why the Owner Chose Jim Thorpe, PA, USA:
The Camp On North townhouse is one of the oldest commercial buildings in Jim Thorpe. The townhouse is located in the boro of Jim Thorpe, ideally located minutes away to the entrance to the Lehigh Gorge State park, and a whitewater rafting provider. Camp On North is minutes to the historic district. The townhouse is equally close to the burial site of the athlete, Jim Thorpe, in whom the town is named after. Built circa 1874, the townhouse has been a bakery, a floral shop, a gift shop and a green grocer. It retains much of the old- world charm and craftsmanship with twelve foot ceilings, art-deco chandeliers, original staircase and polished wood pillars. The spacious townhouse is located across the street from a beautiful clock-tower church. The view of the church is spectacular from the upper windows. Welcome to Jim Thorpe, enjoy the beautiful surroundings in the private outdoor deck with BBQ grill and wrought iron table and chairs. Camp offers stress- free parking for up to six vehicles to the back of the building.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Camp On North location is strategically located for you and your guests outdoor adventures. Camp is located on the Lehigh Gorge side of town, offering a stress- free environment. Located just blocks to the entrance of the Lehigh Gorge and Glen Onoko Falls, makes Camp an ideal place to be. Camp is equally close to the historic district, just three minutes over the new bridge! Additional space is available for 50 guests or less in the commercial space for special events only. Please phone or email for additional information.
