Cozy and quiet!

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our stay at the Jim Thorpe Weekender! The property is very nice - very clean and well maintained. I loved the decor and the beautiful paintings (which I believe were created by the owner - absolutely gorgeous!). The apartment is located on a quiet street and is in my opinion the epitome of small town Pennsylvania living - it’s just adorable! We enjoyed an evening of snow tubing at Blue Mountain which was real close by and took a ride to Scranton to see Steamtown National Historic Site - both of which I would highly recommend if you visit during the winter months. We may be back again in the summer when all of the Jim Thorpe area attractions are open and will happily stay at this property again!

Great weekender

  • 5 of 5

Loved it there! Met Steve and his wife and they informed us on all the different things that were going on in town! The home is beautiful! Very spacious and had everything my boyfriend and I needed. We ate at Union publick pub. Great food and drinks definitely recommend it! We also went to Marcello's Italian restaurant also really enjoyed there food! Definitely recommend going to the pastry table at the train station!. We will be coming back! Thank you Mr and Mrs.Allen.

Cute little bungalow, well stocked and comfortable!

  • 4 of 5

Jim Thorpe is a great little town. This property is conveniently located to great restaurants and shopping. The Santa express train ride was fun and the snow added to the overall ambiance.

Great Stay for my first Jim Thorpe weekend

  • 5 of 5

Stayed the last weekend of October and caught all of the beauty of fall on our 25-mile bike ride from White Haven back to Jim Thorpe but what I liked best was getting to park the truck and leave it there. The new pedestrian bridge was very convenient and with having bikes made it so nice to avoid the busy downtown parking problems and just come and go as we pleased. Owner Steve was thoughtful and asked if we would use the Gas log fireplace if he lit it being as it was getting colder at night. Would stay here again based on convenient location away from downtown but close enough to walk/bike to. It is a very well equipped place to enjoy the weekend would recommend to friends!
