Not a private rental – more of a B&B or hostel feel.

  • 4 of 5

The hostess was very sweet, and served a delicious tomato borscht and chocolate banana cake when we arrived, and practiced her English on us – I only wish I had some Russian ability! From previous reviews, I had thought we could borrow bicycles, but that didn't appear to be the case. There was a bit of a language barrier. No big deal. Right behind the house is a Greenway that leads to the switchback trail.The house is set up as separate rental rooms with a shared bathroom. The attic room we stayed in did not have a door, I don't think. (not a big deal for us). The narrow stairway leading to the room did not have a railing, and there was no bannister around the opening in the attic floor, which make me a bit nervous. Bedroom has a single bed and a double bed, bathroom is downstairs. We left very early, and because we were heading straight to a triathlon, we couldn't eat, so were unable to enjoy the breakfast she offered, but she got up crazy early to see us off anyway and give us some juicy apples to start our day.

Very authentic stay we will remember!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a nice experience staying with this lovely family! The atmosphere was great, the house and the room were clean. We had everything we needed! Larisa and Andrew were very supportive, sharing all tricks and "hidden" places around. The neighborhood is very quite, you can hear birds singing. We loved everything! I wish we could stay longer! Thank you guys for hosting our family!

Very Personable Place

  • 4 of 5

We were made to feel welcome from start to finish. Our hostess was very gracious and friendly, as is her son. It's a lovely home in a lovelier town, especially if you are interested in hiking and biking!

My son and I attended opening night of the 1st Annual Jim Thorpe Independent Film Festival, kudos to everyone involved with that project, well done.

P.S. You will be treated to a scrumptious authentic Russian dish upon arrival, perfect after a day of biking on the D&L Trail in Leigh Gorge State Park.

Nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5

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.
