“No to concert's in the winter”
Review of Penn's Peak

Penn's Peak
Ranked #1 of 2 Nightlife in Jim Thorpe
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 12 March 2014

We do like going to Penn's Peak for concert's, it is a nice place but, will NEVER book in advance for a winter venue again. We booked 7 weeks in advance this time, for the show in December 2013.
We all know that the winter of 2013/14 was one of the worst all over the north east and as the building is waaay up in the mountains near Jim Thorpe, we decided to cancel our trip up there once the snow piled up on the day and couldn't even get off our drive..
The company did not refund our $77.25 for the tickets to see 'Christmas With The Celts'.
They will only reimburse you if the cast do not or cannot turn up. I guess they turned up the day before and stayed at the local hotel 3 miles away or have really heavy snow going vehicles.

It was a scary drive up the "peak" in dark and rain but I found it. Neat place. All folding chairs in a barn like venue with high wooden rafters. Walk up bar in the back. Use their website photos to locate your seat on Ticketmaster or you might behind a post. I would love to come back in the day to see the view

We had reservations for a Christmas show called Christmas with the Celts. The weather was horrible. The area was experiencing an ice and snow storm which made it very dangerous to drive up the mountain to Penn's Peak, not to mention the drive down.
We discovered when we read the fine print that Penn's Peak does not cancel so we braved the storm anyway, rather than lose the money we paid. What a mistake. The show was the worse we ever saw. There was one unflattering Christmas tree on the side of the stage and the band did not play or sing any recognizable Christmas songs. We opted to leave at intermission which was the right decision as the storm was getting worse. We will never book a reservation in the winter at Penn's Peak again, especially knowing they will only cancel if the band cancels and then with conditions.

This is the most spectacular view of the Jim Thorpe and surrounding areas. Food is good and fairly priced. Always great entertainment and never a bad seat in the house.
