Walkable to town from this location.

  • 4 of 5

Stayed a month and never got bored! So much to do and explore within walking and driving distance. Nice grocery store 4/10 of a mile away. Its for the locals so there was no price gouging for tourists. Everyone we met was very welcoming, including our host family! Must experience the Albright Room Speakeasy and have Conrad as your mixologist. The jail and Packer mansions were worth the small entrance fee. Pay the $3 for a self guided tour of the Harry Packer mansion and stay on the veranda for a drink and a view. Its vibe is like it isn't open to the public, but it is! Town is 6/10 of a mile walk, safe and easy.

Just like home

  • 4 of 5

We almost felt like we were in our own home. It was very comfortable and we could cook there if we didn't want to eat out. The grocery store was right down the hill and we had everything we needed for cooking and eating. I highly recommend this place to anyone who stays in the area!

Perfect Jim Thorpe get-a-way!

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing! We went for a single overnight stay after rafting the river. Perfectly located walking distance from down town and from the more adventurous activities along the river.

The owners stopped by and they were incredibly nice and generous to invite us to a party they were headed to.

Iwould highly recomend this listing!

Nice quiet part of town

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at the comfy little apartment. Located close to the grocery down over the hill and close to Jim Thorpe activities. Is within walking distance but it is across the bridge and down the hill so i recommend driving as you will walk around town. We enjoyed the back patio which was shaded. Would stay again if we ever went back.

Great Place in Jim Thorpe!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for me and my two small kids! We spent a week here visiting friends and sight seeing. My kids were so comfortable they declared they did not want to leave! This location is perfect! Being on the quiet side of town saves you from what can be a parking and traffic headache downtown. The walk across the new bridge into town is easy and quick, affords great views of the mountains and the Gorge (and if you really want to drive over, the town lot is only $5 for the day). The cottage is exactly how it looks in the photos, and some of the lovely paintings were done by the owner! It was very easy to relax and kick back in between adventures, make breakfast and chill out. Sofas and sofa bed were comfortable as was the master bed. There is also a cute brick patio out back to enjoy! This would also be a great choice for a couples getaway as well. Thanks for a great stay! We will definitely be back!
