“A perfect "10"”
Reviewed 18 August 2008

We spent two wonderful nights at this charming B&B on a hilltop overlooking the pretty town of Jim Thorpe.. Our genial and gregarious hosts, Bart and Meriel, went out of their way to make us feel like royalty. Meriel's hearty English breakfasts were excellent and she makes use of fresh herbs which grow in the garden. I look forward to go back for more! Margot, the gorgeous Apricot Standard Poodle in residence, is a perfect lady, and complements the charming English touches evident everywhere. Our room had a romantic four-poster canopy bed and electric fireplace. Biscuits (cookies) and cream are left on a tray outside your door in the morning if you wish to start the day with a cup of tea or chocolate or coffee before heading downstairs. They are delicious! There is a very pretty little goldfish pond outside and the sound of water is extremely soothing and pleasant as are the butterfly bushes dripping with Monarchs. Bart is encyclopedic in his knowledge of English history and many other subjects. We enjoyed our conversations very much. We highly recommend Hillcrest B&B as one of the nicest places we have ever stayed.

We spent two nights at the Hillcrest and were very happy with our stay. The room was spacious, clean, and charming. The hosts, Meriel and Bart, were gracious and went out of their way to accommodate us. Meriel is an excellent cook and her English breakfasts were hearty. Located on top of a steep hill in a quiet residential neighborhood, the B&B has a lovely view.
We would go there again and recommend it highly.

  • Liked — Queit and peaceful
