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

The perfect setting for a multigenerational weekend

  • 5 of 5

After reading many glowing reports about this property and the owners, I decided to book it for a multigenerational birthday weekend for my husband. I had a few concerns that proved unfounded. The first was that the rooms would be small and that we would not all be able to gather together. The photos on line do not do it justice. Most of the bedrooms were around 12x14 with plenty of room, plenty of drawer space and plenty of closet space. Our family of 9 easily fit around the huge dining room table and the living room is so large you could play shuffle board on the lovely wood floor. The sun room was a favorite spot for people watching. I was also worried that the teenagers in the family would be put off by the Victorian decor. They thought it was really interesting and the fact that the furnishing are sturdy and supper comfortable was great and added surprise. Denise, the landlady, emphasized that she was available day or night and she has stocked the place with anything you might need. Street parking is limited and so unloading can be tricky. Parking is available up a side street and on the side of a mountain. This is OK in nice weather, but we had ice and snow and it was a tad dicey for those who could not find street parking. You are in the mountains so expect a few adventures. The house is in the middle of town so it's an easy walk to restaurants and shops. We look forward to a return visit. It exceeded our expectations!

girls birthday weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our weekend in Jim Thorpe was so much fun and it all started with this wonderful house! Why stay in a hotel when you can stay here - it was so nice. Big, spacious, clean and just a cool place to stay! Everything you would want was there. The owner was great, any questions we had, she got right back to us. The location was ideal, right next door to the opera house, visited Molly Maguires and dinner at Wheels (which was very good) shopping just a few steps away. The people were so friendly. Really had a great time and we will be back!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for opening your home to us. We had such a wonderful time for Valentine's/Winterfest. Your home is gorgeous, our group was very thrilled. We loved the location as well, we walked everywhere. We got to see our favorite Tribute band, Tusk, as well at Mauch chunk opera house, we also did the scenic train ride and the mug walk. This is our first time staying in your lovely home, and our third year coming to Jim Thorpe. We have made many wonderful memories. Perfect in every way.

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.
