Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything was as promised ; expectations met and surpassed! The place was cozy and clean. The bed-full size- was small for two average sized adults but otherwise quite comfortable. We had one minor hiccup but Jeff was expedient in both his response to our request and in executing a solution! Thank you Jeff for the beautiful getaway! Everything was a delight including the furnished deck and new grill. The weather was agreeable and we were able to make full use of it. The area is geared towards tourist but the place was far enough to afford us quiet but close enough to walk into town and do a little shopping. It was a definite plus to be able to leave the truck secure in our reserved parking spot ESPECIALLY during a holiday weekend! Our pup Quinto fully enjoyed himself as well!! Jim Thorpe is a very dog-friendly community and some of the shop owners were kind enough to let us enter with him AND even give him treats. We'll be back most definitely!

A great rental and super property management by Jeffrey!

  • 5 of 5

We had a nice weekend away in Jim Thorpe at Jeffrey's cozy rental! The weather was not ideal, (raining) but we loved the area and were very happy with Unit A. We will rent again from Jeffrey when the weather is better for bike rides and hiking. Everything is as advertised and Jeffrey is informative, professional and very nice to deal with. He is quick to get back to you if you have any questions. Our unit was clean and very well thought out for a guest. The bedroom and bathroom are a nice size for a one bedroom and cozy. The living room is inviting and has comfy furniture for relaxing after a day out. The Internet service and cable were working well too. We were within walking distance of town, but in a nice quiet part of town for our dogs. We had rainey weather, but still enjoyed the beautiful town, jail tour, eating out and beautiful the scenery. A lot to to in this cute little town! Thanks for a great renting experience!

Clean and Quiet

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent 3 nights here in August to experience Jim Thorpe area and the Poconos. The property was very comfortable for 2 people. Bed was great. Clean and quiet apartment. Had everything we needed. Price was good I think for the area. Only negative was kind of a musty smell in the apartment - the air cleaner helped. Host was great to work with. Overall a very nice stay and I would recommend this property for a couple or single person.

Ideal location & awesome people!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for a quick last minute getaway with my husband and our miniature dachshund. Chad (and really all of the locals) were friendly and extremely helpful in answering any questions that we had. The apartment could not be in a better location and the off street parking is a big bonus. Everything was very clean and we enjoyed that the apartment is decorated with awesome photos/art from around Jim Thorpe. We will definitely be back and highly recommend staying at any of Jeff's properties!

Cozy Hideaway with Helpful Owner

  • 5 of 5

Looking for a quiet getaway in a colorful, laid back little mountain community? This could be the place for you. The two of us had a wonderful time there and the apartment had everything we needed for a private, re-energizing respite. While the furnishings were far from new they were adequate (perhaps quaint?) and carefully planned to meet all our needs. We thought the bed looked soft but each of us slept like a rock every night! And our owner, Jeffrey, answered all of our questions before we arrived and jumped into service immediately if we needed anything while we were there. This was in the lower price range for apartments in the Poconos but we have nothing but warm, wonderful memories of our stay there.

Our recent stay in Jim Thorpe PA

  • 3 of 5

We loved having our own place, with a lovely patio, but a new mattress is definitely needed, and sure wish they could do something to those floors in the upstairs apartment, when there are small children staying upstairs!

Owner's Response: Tha mattress is a brand new high end Sealy that also has a Tempurpedic mattress cover. Since you stayed there, I had two different guests that said it was the best mattress they ever slept on.. but I'm sorry that it wasn't to your liking...
