About Mary Bogin

We love the outdoors, good restaurants and great people. That's why we moved to Jim Thorpe.We are very active in our community and can assist you in planning a great vacation stay.

Mary Bogin purchased this house in 2010

Why Mary Bogin chose Poconos

We found Jim Thorpe through kayaking and walking through town was enchanting. We decided to move and luckily found our 1860's Civil War home right in the 'Historic District'. We can walk to the train station and even walk to the Lehigh River where we spend many happy days whitewater kayaking. We can walk up the street to the Switchback Trail which is famous for its hiking and Mt. Biking. We also ride our tandem bike downtown and cross the parking lot into the Delaware and Lehigh Trail that follows the Lehigh River into the Lehigh Gorge State Park that is breathtaking.

What makes this house unique

Our location to all of your favorite outdoor sports is within walking distance from our home. Our home and property is private and secluded, set back at the base of Flagstaff mountain. We have designed our Jim Thorpe Adventure House for your comfort, conveinience and privacy. Your private outdoor space includes the new 24 ft round heated pool, 2 level new deck with privacy walls and a new deluxe 4 person hot tub!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mary and Neil were fabulous hosts.

They greeted us and gave a quick tour of the house addition to some information about local attractions. The house was great.They truly thought of everything to accommodate guests. They have 2 Keurig coffee stations(one on each floor) stocked with all types of warm beverages, custom plush bathrobes, Amazon Prime/Netflix, a fully stocked kitchen; not to mention the awesome pool and hot tub! The bed and sofa were very comfortable and the Jaccuzi Jet Tub was amazing. We had such a relaxing stay and cannot wait to go back next summer.

Jim Thorpe is a charming little town and this house is walking distance to everything. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone interested in a relaxing vacation.

Fantastic location, amazing home, and wonderful owners

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I spent a girls' weekend at Neil and Mary's house, and we all had a fantastic time. Neil and Mary were very accommodating, friendly, and attentive to all of our needs, both in preparation of our stay and during! Their home boasts many creature comforts - more than many hotels - and was within walking distance to many of Jim Thorpe's attractions. We are already planning on returning again next year for our next girls' get-away! Thank you, Neil and Mary!

Amazing!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Mary and Neil were wonderful hosts! When we got there they gave us a nice tour and we're always available via text to answer and questions we had. Their house is in a perfect location. The home is kept in great shape. They had everything and anything you could need while you are in vacation, from towels and soaps and shampoos, to plates and cups and all pots and pans and silverware. We really didn't need to bring much. The pool and hot tub were amazing after our adventures out all day. I would recommend this to all!!! Oh and their neighbor is so helpful as well. He told us about the mine tour which was FANTASTIC. This was one of the best places I've ever stayed!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO ALL!!!!!

Charming Home in a beautiful little town

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I recently had the pleasure of staying at this delightful home in Jim Thorpe.

We booked this home so that we could be close to the whitewater rafting and have a quiet weekend getaway. The pool and hot tub was the perfect end to a long day of rafting and the house had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. The owners Neil and Mary were quick to respond to questions and Neil was there waiting for us when we arrived at the house. He gave us a tour, answered all of our questions and then left us to enjoy our time. 1st thing we noticed was that the house was immaculate! The bed was comfortable and the kitchen was supplied with everything you need to cook. Backyard was our favorite.. completely private, view of the trees behind the house , the swimming pool, hot tub and grill made it feel like being home. The only thing you'll need to bring is some charcoal if you plan our bbqing. Thank you Neil and Mary for making our stay so comfortable!

kid free get away

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here while the kids were at a nearby summer camp. The property was very clean, the pool was lovely, and the hot tub was perfect! We were looking for quiet down time and that is exactly what we got! Mary and Neil were helpful and friendly when we checked in, but then left us to enjoy ourselves. The house had everything you could possibly need - from spa robes, Keurig coffees and teas, bath and pool towels, netflix.......and within walking distance to restaurants and shops in town, but off the main road so that there was peace and quiet at the house. We enjoyed the restaurants Moya and 903 Trattoria. If you are staying in Jim Thorpe, we would highly recommend this property!
