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

Perfect Weekend

  • 5 of 5
We could not have wished for better weather or accommodations. A perfect fall weekend to ride the train and stroll the streets of Jim Thorpe. Three stressed couples arrived and were instantly thrilled with the beautiful home. We relaxed, listened to music, and ate pizza in the most elegant dining room ever! Everything needed was provided!!! Thanks for the attitude adjustment and a time to appreciate and enjoy friends the way everyone should.

Homeowners are lovely and answer any questions immediately.
We will all be back!!!

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!!!
