Jim Thorpe House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

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.

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 Enoko, 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.

We are a entrepreneurial family who are involved in real estate and have several other side businesses. We have 4 children and live next door to the property.

Jennifer Dages purchased this house in 2003

Our house is comfortable and spacious and just right for your weekend get-away with friends or family. It is located just enough to town that you can easily walk to downtown attractions, but there is mountain behind and in front of the house so you don't have that in town crowded feeling.

We offer a healthy living weekend which includes food prepared according to special dietary accomodations, nutritional seminars, hiking, massage, and a nutritional consult. Go to http://www.purposefulnutrition.com/?page_id=123 for more info.

Great place for large family gatherings!

My adult children and families and sister and husband spent the week between Christmas and New years and had a great time. The owners were very accommodating and the home was extremely comfortable and homey. The location in town was ideal with off street parking and was perfect for occasional strolls to the restaurants and shops as well as sightseeing. I would highly recommend this home for your vacation getaway and the owners are very honest and attentive to your needs as well as close if you need information about the area. You won't be disappointed!!

Thanks for everything. We enjoyed staying at your rental - felt like home, relaxing and the perfect location to see the local area.
Big thanks to Bob, "the plumber" for fetching my earrings when they fell down the bathroom sink.
God's blessings to you all.

We an altogether good experience. I loved the old fashion homey look. It was peacefull. I'm only 28 but I loved it. I loved getting up in the morning and making my usual tea in a kettle. I like the wall to wall carpet upstairs and the wooden floors downstairs. Also the master bedroom was a good size. I didn't care too much for the beds in the kids room. And we a slight technical problem. But Bob and Jennifer sent the proper person out to fix it right away. I recommend this place.

Jim Thorpe is a lovely town set in the Pocono Mountains. It has been known as 'Little Switzerland' because of its narrow streets and lovely mountain setting. There is something for everyone here- fine restaurants, cute shops, mountain biking, swimming, white water rafting, hiking, and more.
