About the property

About Joan Morykin

I am an avid runner and cyclist and the mother of two young children. My husband is an artist who also has his studio in the building where we also run an art gallery and event venue space.

Joan Morykin purchased this mill in 2004

Why Joan Morykin chose Poconos

I first visited Jim Thorpe on a weekend get away from New York City in 1998 and immediately fell in love with the town - its proximity to New York and Philadelphia was perfect for a weekend retreat and I bought a small weekend house. A number of years later, my artist husband was looking for studio space and we purchased a 15,000 sq. ft. former wireworks factory and spent six years fixing up the building. As an avid runner, the beautiful mountain trails still hold a fascination for me every time I go out. This town is perfect to raise a family - there is an old fashioned candy store, a classic 5&10 and easy access to the Lehigh River and a recreational lake park, skiing and cycling.

What makes this mill unique

Cozy and wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely visit to this place. Victor and Joan were so nice during our brief stay. We came to Jim Thorpe for our wedding anniversary and had a really peaceful and fun time seeing the town and hiking the falls trail. I loved taking photographs throughout the surrounding area. The weather was perfect and the accommodations were cozy and super interesting. We'd stay again in a heartbeat.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

The loft was open, spacious and very clean and comfortable. Joan was gracious, welcoming and promptly helpful when we had a question. The town was easily accessible on foot. Access to Victor's art gallery was an unexpected treat and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Unique experience (in a good way)!

  • 5 of 5

Ironically, we initially booked this place because, of all reasons, they had a last minute vacancy and would accept our dog. I had no idea that the apartment and visiting the amazing building it is built into would be one of the highlights of our trip to Jim Thorpe. Joan and Victor, the owners, were so gracious in sharing the space beyond the apartment itself, allowing us to visit the art gallery, and the courtyard. We are huge fans of Victor's art now and encourage anyone who enjoys fine art to visit. The apartment was spacious, clean, and comfortable with a beautifully renovated bathroom. There was also a big room with a foosball table which the kids used a lot; choreographing dance routines and turning cartwheels---that's how big it was. That room was not technically part of the apartment but there did not seem to be any concern about us using it, so use it we did. We are already thinking of a return trip to see leaves changed and hope to return to this apartment if there are openings.

Clean, spacious, convenient

  • 5 of 5

This property was great! It was clean and spacious just as pictured. It's a little less than a mile away from the down town area making it walkable to restaurants and shops. It's also very close to nearby lakes and hiking. Overall, I would definitely stay here again!

A Gem in Jim Thorpe

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent four nights here, along with our dog and we could not have made a better choice! The loft was huge, and that was only the half of it. The outside patio area was gorgeous and felt like we were in a garden by ourselves. We spent each morning and evening there, taking in the sun or the pretty evening lights. And it was perfect for our dog to roam, as it is all enclosed.

We were able to walk to the trails right from the loft - one day we tramped to the lake, which was a six-mile round trip trek (our dog was rewarded with a splash in that lake); another day we simply walked a shorter distance to enjoy the trees and stream that runs along the trail.

The art gallery downstairs was also a treat, and my husband and I decided that we wanted a momento from our stay and purchased a lovely piece from Victor, who was gracious enough to come over, pack it up for travel, and let us take it right off the wall!

Joan is lovely, responds within the hour, and even gave us her inside information on the best way to enjoy the nearby Bethlehem music festival, which we used to our benefit ( if you've never been to this festival, you must add it to your bucket list).

What could I suggest for improvement? Hmmm...well, I guess for me - a big town girl with a bit of vanity - I'd love a full length mirror somewhere. The mirrors in the spa bathroom are HUGE, but alas, I am short, and I never could see to my shoes. And in that beautiful shower area I'd like a waterproof seat of a sort, again, for vanity, so I could use my razor without striking a cool yoga pose. 😃? ( There is a beautiful claw foot tub there with a spray nozzle to achieve this, if you want to sit on the edge of the tub or get into it, but I'm not a bath person necessarily, and I'm reaching here).

In all, this place is cool, funky, in an unbelievable location, and we still couldn't believe we had it all to ourselves. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Thanks for everything Joan and Victor

Outstanding loft in Jim Thorpe

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing place to stay in Jim Thorpe! The art gallery below the loft was fascinating. And the loft itself has a great cozy feel while also being spacious and modern.
