stayed in the Art Deco room and was amazed with the attention to detail regarding that style - loved the room but it does have a small bathroom and shower stall (adequate) - the house is tired but magnificent - the owner, Ellen, is lovely. The breakfast is continental in nature and suited us fine. Perfect location. Parking right in... More

We walked in without a reservation and Ellen was there to greet us. We immediately felt at home. She had the suite available and it was just what we wanted. Sitting in the alcove drinking coffee in the morning was so relaxing - and they deliver a continental breakfast to your room! The bathroom was large and the tub was... More

We stopped here because we noticed that tours are given here. Upon entering we were greeted by the son of the owner. We asked if tours are offered and he said "no not really". He mentioned that he was not normally there but that his mother, the owner, was in the hospital. The place looked unkempt and had a funny... More

This was our 2nd time staying in the suite and once again, it was a lovely experience. It's an excellent location right on the main street, the owner is the sweetest lady and the morning treats are delicious.

We stayed in the bed and breakfast in Jim Thorpe when I did a triathlon at Beltsville lake. The owner Ellen DeFeo could not been more accommodating . I have some special breakfast needs prior to a race and Ellen took care of everything I needed. She also was kind enough to allow me to come back and shower after... More

If you scroll a bit, you'll find the review I wrote after our first visit to the Manor. My husband and I returned there around Christmastime, and we had an even harder time saying good-bye to the DeFeos and to the charming Victorian that calls to us and takes us on a wonderful journey back in time. From our window... More

This was my first time in Jim thorpe and was not aware that the mansion was giving tours. It needs to be advertised more so that the history does not go unnoticed.

We were privileged with a personal tour of this lovely 1880s Victorian B&B. The custom Italian entranceway with mosaic flooring, Tiffany etched window dividers and classic architecture with matching furnishing throughout was a delight to behold. We have not observed a period B&B with personal private dining in each room. A very nice touch for a special occasion or get-away.... More

A wonderful tour of a beautiful Victorian style home with eighteen rooms. Original staircase worth the trip in and of itself. Richard DeFeo and his wife Ellen are a book of knowledge on not only the house but Jim Thorpe. You are instantly transported back in time and is a lovely way to spend some time.
