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.

About Jennifer Dages

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

Why Jennifer Dages chose Jim Thorpe

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Better than a Hilton

  • 5 of 5
All the conveniences of Jim Thorpe at your doorstep. Spacious rooms and it was like having a whole house detailed! (very clean). The offstreet parking was a big plus. Myself ands three friends spent four nights here and had a time of our life; we went kayaking (Bob loaned me his kayak, what a friend; I just met him!), we ziplined, toured a jail, and took several bike trips on the trails. I also would like to add that Jennifer called me to ensure we arrived safely according to our ETA. I'm still overwhelmed with the nature that surrounded us, truely Gods country. Thank you so much:)

Wonderful Weekend

  • 5 of 5
We had a wedding in Jim Thorpe and needed a place to stay. we have 4 children ranging from age 3-9. This place was perfect and wonderful. We had a great weekend and the owners were super nice and their kids really friendly. They raise bunnies and allowed my kids to come over and play with them (which was the highlight of the trip for all of my kids). The owners were also really nice and flexible about check in and out time which gave us time to explore the local area on Sunday. the house is in great condition and there is tons of room. nice that there were some games and books availabe for the kids (more than what we brought for each one).

Great place for large family gatherings!

  • 5 of 5
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!!

My experience at

  • 4 of 5
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.

Great family get away

  • 4 of 5
We just got back from our trip with another family of friends and we all had a great time. The house is within easy walking distance to the cute town of Jim Thorpe. It is also close to all the biking, rafting, and hiking trips we did. Jen and Bob, the owners live right next door and were very helpful and friendly. Our kids asked us when we could go back as we were driving home in the car!
