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!

PLEASE USE THE 'REQUEST TO BOOK/BOOK IT' BUTTON FOR AN IMMEDIATE QUOTE AND AVAILABILITY THANK YOU! MINIMUM AGE FOR ALL GUESTS IS 25.

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.

The Bogin's were so nice and the property was great. Close to everything, no driving necessary

  • 5 of 5

From our arrival to our departure it was a wonderful experience. We parked our car and never used it again. It was a short walk to everything. Sitting outside in the hot tub while a light snow was falling was amazing. The house was so well equipped you really don't need to bring anything except your personal items. Unfortunately the pool was closed for the season so we definitely want to return when the weather is warmer. Beautiful deck by the pool. Jim Thorpe is a quaint beautiful town. We highly recommend this property.

It wasn't as private as what we were looking for but turned out to be a great.

  • 5 of 5

The home is very clean & lovely. Neil & Mary have everything you need. We decided to stay in all weekend so we stopped for food and cooked in. It was peaceful and relaxing. The town is full of people but we were far enough not to hear the noise. Just heard the church bells...which I loved. If you're with the right person and looking for a romantic, quiet getaway. You'll love it.

Convenient and comfortable accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Mary and Neil are friendly and gracious hosts who provide a wonderful retreat in an extraordinary place to visit. The house is very clean and cozy, stocked with everything necessary to feel at home along with a few added bonuses. You won't need your car to get to the attractions in town as the house is located ideally. Jim Thorpe is full of things to do as the town is rich in history and located in a picturesque setting. We had a wonderful and memorable vacation there.

Beautiful home and wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Mary & Neil are wonderful hosts and their home is impeccable! They greeted us very warmly upon our arrival, and could not have been more helpful! They gave a brief tour and explanation of the amenities, including a beautiful clean heated outdoor pool, jacuzzi spa, TV with many movies from Amazon & Netflix, fully stocked kitchen - with Keurig and coffee, teas provided, and comfortable rooms with clean linen and plush towels, even bathrobes!

The house and property was very clean, well-maintained, comfortable and cozy. It is a short walk to town which makes it very convenient too.

We highly recommend this to anyone looking for a nice getaway in a very private setting!

Everything we wanted for our Jim Thorpe vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights following my return from an overseas deployment so it was important to us to have quiet and solitude. Neil and Mary are a wonderful couple, very warm and friendly. They met us upon arrival, went over all of the features of the house, left contact information and informed us that they would be 10 minutes away if we had any problems. After that, because we didn't have any issues, they allowed us to enjoy our time in Jim Thorpe without interruption. In my opinion, they provided the perfect amount of support while allowing us to have our privacy. The property was everything that the listing advertised and more. The bed was comfortable, there were plenty of blankets, linens, pillows, towels, etc. The kitchen was large with plenty of utensils, dishes, and cookware. The walk to the historic downtown area takes about 10 minutes and is a nice leisurely stroll. We didn't use the pool because of the weather, but the hot tub was absolutely perfect for our getaway. I would recommend this property to anyone staying in Jim Thorpe. My wife and I have decided to make this an annual trip now and we will definitely be contacting Neil and Mary when we come back. I give this property and the owners a 5-star rating because both met, or exceeded, all of our needs and I can't think of a single thing that we would change about it.
