My wife and I stayed at Hillcrest B & B for a long weekend. I selected the B & B based on reviews, price, and offering a full breakfast, which several in the area offer just a continental breakfast. We arrived, and Bart provided a history of the B & B and the area. My wife especially liked playing with...

What a wonderful place to stay! We were travelling to a new area, and the Hillcrest B & B provided a good base to explore the area. Bart and Meriel Springer not only provided us a lovely room and breakfasts, but great conversation and detailed knowledge of local sites, attractions and amenities. The hilltop location and garden provided a quiet...

We celebrated our 50th anniversary with a weekend in Jim Thorpe and among the reasons it was so special was our stay with Bart and Meriel Springer at their Hillcrest B & B. We found that all the positive comments about this lovely B & B in other Trip Advisor reviews were absolutely true. The sumptuous red room, convenient location,...

A spotlessly clean and charming B&B with two wonderful hosts, Bart and Meriel, who provided a warm welcome with a glass of wine, interesting conversation and endless help in planning activities, dining arrangements and driving routes. My wife and I stayed in the "Red" room in the front of the house. It was very comfortable, with a Queen size bed...

My husband and I just stayed here recently for a last minute getaway. Most of the other lodgings were booked and it had good reviews so we stayed here and enjoyed it very much. It's quiet and up on the hill above the town. You can walk to town, however you'd best be in decent physical shape because it is...

We had trouble finding a place in Jim Thorpe and then found this really cozy B&B on the hill with a good view of the town on the other side of the river. Meriel gave us a very warm welcome, which made us feel at home immediately. The room created a simple "wow" out of my mouth - I just...

My boyfriend and I came here for our first weekend away together. The owners, Bart and Meriel, are the sweetest people. We arrived late at night due to car trouble, and they were still up to welcome us. In fact, Meriel was in the kitchen making the most wonderful-smelling scones (she is from England, and there were adorable English touches...

We stayed here for two nights during the Fall Foliage Festival. Regular visitors to Jim Thorpe, we have stayed at many BnBs and Hillcrest is one of the best for comfort, service and welcoming atmosphere. The owners went out of their way to accommodate our late arrival in town. The room was beautiful, and the bed was very comfortable. The...

This could just be one of Jim Thorpe's best kept secretes! From getting checked in to our room to when we left the overflowing amounts of hospitality were second to none! Bart & Meriel are fantastic! The town of Jim Thorpe has tons of great tours and places to eat. To work off some of the excellent food there are...

My husband and I were treated like royalty from the moment we arrived at the Hillcrest B&B. We arrived and were escorted to a beautiful room, very clean and very interesting with things from England. The bed looked amazing! We went into town and ate an elegant dinner at the Albright Mansion which is now known at Crave 66 on...
