About Denise Rossano

My husband and I have been together since we were teenagers and have always made our way up to Pennsylvania from New York for the past 32 years. We accidentally found Jim Thrope when we picked up a brochure for mountain biking. When we turned into the town we couldn't believe how beautiful it was. As we took our first step into this house, we were in love. I hope you will have wonderful memories, adventure packed weeks or just stop in and fall in love all over again!

Denise Rossano purchased this house in 2011

Perfection in Jim Thorpe!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this beautiful home for our son's wedding weekend. The wedding ceremony was at the Mauch Chunk Opera House, so the location could not have been better. We put up a group of his college friends here with their spouses and they had plenty of room and privacy and loved it. This house is stunning. The rooms are lovingly appointed and beautiful. The home has so much space to relax and spread out in comfort. It is the perfect place for a reunion or for friends or family to share a beautiful space together. The location is perfect as it is in the heart of where everything is happening in Jim Thorpe. Just a few doors from the Opera House and a short walk across the street for a bite to eat or shopping, it is the perfect location and setting for a wonderful get-away! The owner was so friendly and accessible. Thank you for a wonderful weekend!

2 Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5
A friend of mine and I make a trip to Jim Thorpe yearly...not to visit the down but to kayak the Lehigh River and we camp. Last year, our spouses went with us and LOVED the town. This summer, we got the 2 families together and took the kids for their first time to Jim Thorpe (and quite honestly ours!). We chose this Victorian for the character and how well centered it was in town. Not once did we have to drive as we were perfectly located. One thing I loved is that it is just past the Opera House, getting you off of the very busy part of Broadway. With 5 bedrooms, we were able to fit 4 adults,3 teenagers, 2 kids and a baby easily. With the finished sunroom, we were able to spread out and not feel cramped. The kids loved how comfortable the couches were for late night movies. The sunroom was a great spot to just unwind a bit. The bedrooms are far enough back that there was quiet even if others were up. Every single thing you could need, down to Benadryl, was found in the house. The house was beautifully decorated...one could get lost just looking at the furnishings. Denise was great to work with and flexible with us after a family emergency occurred that we had to move our trip by 2 months. ****Please keep in mind that there are some very old, irreplaceable pieces in this house. I am NOT recommending this home for small/young children because of this. Our kids are all over 7 with the exception of our 8mos old daughter. As much as we loved this house, I am doubtful we will stay next year with a toddler...but I know we will be back again! If you have a large party or older kids, you will not be disappointed in this house. It is PERFECT in every way and fits the town beautifully.

Wonderland Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5
We rented the Victorian for our family to stay for our weekend wedding. Our ceremony was Friday and the reception Saturday. We planned a Saturday morning train ride and an afternoon scavenger hunt as we really wanted our family to 'experience' Jim Thorpe to understand why we selected this off-site location for our wedding.

The photos and description exactly reflect the property.

The Victorian is the perfect (and in my opinion the ONLY) place that visitors should stay in Jim Thorpe. It encompasses the look and feel of the town to a T.

First The Victorian is so conveniently located and there is parking for 5 (yes 5) vehicles - which is unheard of in Jim Thorpe! This made arrival and access for our guests easy (and leisurely!)

The large gathering rooms are perfect for family time and the many bedrooms provide personal space as needed at those family outings! Each room is beautifully decorated with antiques, some even from the original owners. All toiletries and linens are provided. And every inch of the house is spotless.

The backyard is a beautiful setting for a cookout.

Denise is overly accommodating - she met every request that I had.

I simply cannot say how much this property played a part in our wedding. If we hadn't rented this property, I am sure the outcome of the whole weekend would have been different.

So, if you want to just visit Jim Thorpe, go ahead and stay at the Inn. But if you want to 'be' in Jim Thorpe, this is THE place to stay.

Denise - thank you so much!!!

House was more than we expected

  • 5 of 5
This was a great find and I will definitely stay here again if I'm ever with a group in Jim Thorpe! With 5 good-sized bedrooms and lots of common space, my family had plenty of room. We were 9 adults and 2 babies, with a couple and their baby stopping by. The house had everything you could think of...we even grilled out back with picnic tables and the provided charcoal. Everything is on the first level (up ~4 steps to the front door) so it was easy to unload all of our things. The sitting area by the front door was great for morning coffee and watching people walk by.

Before booking this, I was skeptical as the reviews were all positive. I thought it would be too good to be true. The house was very clean and well provisioned. There were plenty of extra blankets and towels, cleaning supplies, dishwash soap, etc. It was right in downtown next to the shops and right next to the Opera House. (the walk downtown goes down a hill). The furniture and style was very interesting to look at and enjoyed by all. Books about the history of the area and are brochures are offered. Owner also provided details about the history of the home in the welcome packet. The owner was helpful and emphasized that we should call her should we need anything. We called upon arriving and leaving to set the security system and she was easily reached both times. She also provides an electronic code (which is changed) for access so that you don't need to worry about anyone in your group having or losing keys.

Our group was able to fit 5 cars in the back, though some were parked in. (It's accessed by a big staircase, but you're right downtown so don't need to make the hike to your car much). I had seen another review before that parking in Jim Thorpe can be difficult but with this house we had no problem and the owner had confirmed this prior to our arriving.

We did find 2 minor things that could be improved (but really, very minor). We could not find tongs for grilling, though perhaps we just did not look hard enough because there were plenty of other utensils, plates, bowls, pans, cookie sheets, etc. Additionally, the ice cube trays were laughable and looked like they came from a childs playset providing 1 cm ice cubes.

An elegant and stately getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this property for my sister's bachelorette party weekend in Jim Thorpe. The town is adorable, and we absolutely loved this house. We fell in love with the pictures and were pleasantly surprised to see that they did not even do the house justice! It is beautifully decorated, very spacious and conveniently located. We fit 8 people comfortably and definitely could have found room for a few more. Definitely recommend this rental and would rent the same property again.
