Holiday Rental House
Fine restaurants, outdoor activities like swimming, biking, rafting, small unique shops, art galleries- Jim Thorpe has it all. This is a family friendly town with lots to do in the area. Only hours from Philadelphia and New York it is not difficult to get to. Close to lots of fun things to do in town.: This house is located right in Jim Thorpe on the main street, but with off-street parking so you don't have to worry about finding a spot for your car. Minutes from the varied restaurants of Jim Thorpe, you have a choice to cook your self in our full equipped kitchen or go out for a delicious dinner cooked by someone else. It is a 15 minute walk to the downtown shops and museums of Jim Thorpe.

It is a 15 minute walk to the downtown shops and museums of Jim Thorpe. It may not be the most impressive house available but it is clean, comfortable and affordable for your group or family. And we live next door and will do our very best to make sure you have a good vacation here in our lovely town. Or get into the great outdoors.: Just 3 miles by car is Mauch Chunk Lake with swimming and a lovely beach, boating and fishing on the lake, and hiking around the lake. This lake is enjoyable in all seasons. Or jump on your bicycle and join up with the Switchback Trail just minutes from the property. Rafting is available down on the Lehigh River which runs right through the heart of Jim Thorpe. Or take a hike to Glen Onoko, a short drive from town and the property where you will stay. In winter we are just a short drive from 3 ski areas- Blue Mountain, Jack Frost, or Big Boulder. And if you want to see the lovely leaves in the fall they are all around in whatever direction you might turn. More

I live next door and am easy to get a hold of if questions or problems come up. I usually try to be around to greet guests when they arrive as well.

Thank you for your review. You folks were great guests. Also I had no idea about the toaster not working so will be replacing that today before the next guest.

About the neighbourhood
This house is great because you are still in town and can easily walk down to access all the great features of Jim Thorpe, but there are no houses behind it and only 1 across the street so it has the feel of being in the mountains. It is a 15 minute walk downtown or a 2 minute drive. The other direction it is only a 5 minute drive to Mauch Chunk Lake with swimming, hiking, and relaxing on the beach.
