About Denise Rossano

My husband and I have been together since we were teenagers and have always made our way up to Pennsylvania from New York for the past 32 years. We accidentally found Jim Thrope when we picked up a brochure for mountain biking. When we turned into the town we couldn't believe how beautiful it was. As we took our first step into this house, we were in love. I hope you will have wonderful memories, adventure packed weeks or just stop in and fall in love all over again!

Denise Rossano purchased this house in 2011

Why Denise Rossano chose Poconos

Besides the obvious reasons of beauty, the history of the house and its location, just sold us.

What makes this house unique

Walk to musical shows, museums, restaurants and shops.

plusses and minusses....

  • 3 of 5

Good stuff: location is great, we parked the cars and didn't need them all weekend, loved that everything was in walking distance, charming home, spacious, lovely updated kitchen and bathrooms. Very clean, comfy beds.

Not-so-good stuff: didn't get check-in instructions until after I called the owner on Thursday night and we were leaving Friday morning, also some confusion as to who had booked there for the weekend; our welcome letter had us checking out on Sunday instead of Monday. We had to go to the basement, well, cellar, to turn on the WiFi, also the old wiring in the bedrooms is not safe. We had to go to the basement to turn the power back on once, don't think the guests should have to do stuff like that.

This is at least the 6th time (or more) I have rented through VRBO, and the first time I ever had any problems. That cellar is creepy!

Everything you need in Victorian Gem

  • 5 of 5

This house was the star of our stay. We were getting married in JT and the early guests that would visit us at our rental were amazed by this house. The owners have created a beautiful home full of antiques yet with everthing a family could need during a stay. Plenty of towels, plates and cups, toothpaste. . .everything. We can not wait to visit again.

Tremendous

  • 5 of 5

The Victorian on Broadway in Jim Thorpe was a perfect location for getting a group of family and friends together for a celebration. We had 10 in for for my wife's birthday and the house was well stocked, clean and filled with interesting furnishings and decorations. The beds and linens were especially nice. The kitchen and outdoor grill (a top of the line gas + coal smoker) plus seating for 10 and a huge buffet table made a large group dinner memorable. Parking up the hill behind the house was sufficient after being instructed to unload in from of the house and then take the cars up. It is only a short walk to downtown Jim Thorpe and a 15 min car ride to the outdoor activities in Lehigh Gorge State Park. The owner is responsive to questions but not overbearing. We have stayed with HA / VRBO in many places and this house is easy to recommend.
