Our family stayed here for two nights while exploring the area (using JTX Experience as our guide). Our room had a queen bed & a bunk bed. Our room had a private bathroom, although other rooms in the house share a bathroom. The guest house allows all lodgers to share a common area that includes a living room, dining room, and kitchen. As our room was pretty spacious (it included a couch & chair) we did not use the common area much.
We were pleased with the hospitality extended to us by our host, Tom, and were quite comfortable with our accommodations. It provided a homey feeling, and was great to base our activities out of. It's conveniently located in the heart of historic Jim Thorpe.
We would wholeheartedly recommend Mary's Guesthouse, and would enjoy staying here again next time we're in the area.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Mary's Guesthouse is a wonderful home-away-from-home in the historic, Victorian mountain village of Jim Thorpe, PA. Equipped with everything you should need for a pleasant stay, Mary's is set up in the European style of lodging, with a shared 'common area' that features a fully-equipped kitchen, dining room that seats up to 10, and a living room with comfortable furniture for relaxing/reading/talking. There are 3 different lodging rooms (plus one small 'spare room' used by groups), with prices of $60, $75, $85 per room. Two rooms share 1 bath, the other room has its own bathroom. Renting the whole house gets your group of 6 to 10 people a casual, comfy stay that is also economical (starting at $220 per night). Mary's is located steps away from the downtown shopping/dining district, so it's very convenient. Also, note that Mary's is great for families with (well-behaved) children and groups up to 10 people. ... more less
