Larissa and her son are the reason we enjoyed it so much staying here. They make you feel like your visiting friends. When we arrived we were treated to a delicious vegetable soup (borscht). It was a cold rainy day, so the warm soup hit the spot. She also served a wonderful chocolate, banana cake to us. Her son told us how to get arround in Jim Thorpe, and was very informative on what was available to see.
This is a private home, where the owner is renting out the bedrooms, with a shared bathroom. The rooms have double beds, not queen size, and there are a lot of stairs that can be difficult if you have any problems climbing them. All this taken into consideration, this is a great place for the traveler who likes to meet great people and experience a place more than a cookie cutter motel.
