“Wonderful stay in a beautifully restored victorian home!”
Reviewed 3 October 2010

Ellen and Richard treated my fiance and I like we were their grandchildren and part of their family. The Defeo house is located smack in the middle of the town, which make things very convenient to walk around too. We hardly needed a car to explore and experience the town of Jim Thorpe. The Suite with its views are absolutely amazing, every morning we were brought a wonderful breakfast and watch the town slowly waking up. I had a dairy allergy which makes eating out or eating breakfast very difficult in certain situations. Ellen and Richard were totally accommodating, they immediately went out and purchase soy milk and ingredients so I could enjoy the morning "breakfast experience". They both treated us like family and we were sad to leave! We will def. be back in the future!!! xoxoxo ~ Aly

I had a wonderful time in the Suite. The view is incredible. The terrace is wonderful to watch the town. The Suite is very large. Richard is absolutely wonderful to talk to and spend time with. The town is a lovely little place. We enjoyed ourselves.

The proprietors, Ellen and Richard De Feo are attentive without being obtrusive and they work really hard to help you enjoy your stay. They are very knowledgeable about their fascinating Victorian home, which features exquisite stained glass and elaborate tiling, and woodwork that you almost never see today. Plus you can't beat the location; we walked everywhere. We stayed in "The Suite," which featured two turret-style sitting areas, antique furniture, a huge, venerable bathtub and a modern shower. Our teen loved the sitting room, where she slept and we were very comfortable in the bedroom portion of the suite. How I would love to return to DeFeo's, with as many friends as I could carry with me.

A heartfelt thank you to Ellen and Richard for a wonderful weekend. They shared their home their knowledge and their love of people to make it perfect. The weekend was a blend of the Pocono Blues Fest, lovely accomodations in the Suite, and a touch of history in historic Jim Thorpe. They truly are two of the nicest people we have met in our travels.

This was our first trip to Jim Thorpe and we're already planning a return trip, including a second stay at the DeFoe's B&B. The DeFoe's Manor B&B is a beautifully restored Victorian house in the heart of the historic district. It's run by the most gracious, friendly hosts you'll ever meet. From the moment we met Richard and Ellen on the B&B's wrap-around porch, we felt like we had been life-long friends! Visiting with them and "catching up" on travels, kids, books, wine, etc. was as enjoyable as touring the town and going to the beautiful Opera House across the street.

Richard and Ellen, thank you for fantastic accommodations, a memorable visit to Jim Thorpe, and your sincere love for your B&B...it shows in everything you do.

We had a great weekend staying at the Manor B&B. Richard and Ellen were great hosts, very friendly, and provided very good recommendations. The room is stocked with a fridge, cereal, milk, chocolates, and cookies. The location is great - right in the center of town, and right near a number of bicycling trails. We would definitely stay there again.
