person found this review helpful

The owners, Jennifer and Bob, were very welcoming. They live right next door and were available for any questions or troubles. House was in good condition and there was lots to do around town. Driveway could easily fit 2-3 cars which was great and every room had A/C. Overall the experience was excellent and I would definitely rent from them again.

“Lots of Room”
Reviewed 8 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

There was plenty of room for 3 couples to spread out. Each couple had their own bedroom - 2 rooms with queen size beds, 1 room with two twin beds. Each bedroom has a window unit air conditioner. The living room and dining rooms were spacious. We cooked dinners in. The kitchen cookware was old, so I'd advise bringing your own favorite cooking tools if you are picky. The location is great, walking distance from the attractions in the town. Parking at the house easily fit 3 cars - a BIG plus! We rode our bikes from the house to the train stop for the trip up to Whitehaven and we biked back. Fun weekend!

Thank you for your review. You folks were great guests.
Also I had no idea about the toaster not working so will be replacing that today before the next guest.

“Cosy and homely.”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Jennifer and Bob welcomed us in. They were very warm and friendly. They live in the next house, so they are always around for help and advise. The house is old, but clean and comfortable, with lots of space. The driveway was all ours for parking. The house is located near to local attractions. Overall we had an enjoyable stay.

“Very enjoyable stay”
Reviewed 7 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

This is a very comfortable home that is close to all the attractions that Jim Thorpe has to offer. Jennifer and Bob are excellent hosts and were highly informative about the area. We really enjoyed the home-away-from-home feeling that this rental provided and would definitely like to return to it and Jim Thorpe.

We were glad to have you and your family.
We do try and keep the house at 68 so for some people that can be a bit on the cool side. (Just trying to manage heat prices). Not sure what happened with the hot water as you folks did not say anything to us. Usually that is not a problem.
The house is in town in Jim Thorpe, which is 6 miles from the PA NorthEast Extension of the Turnpike, which is the closest highway. It is located on the main street of the town but has mountain behind it so has somewhat of a woodsy feel.
