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 mix 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 trained 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 physiologic 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.
