The Victorian-esque town of Jim Thorpe earns the nickname “Switzerland of America” for its charming architecture and picturesque setting in the Pocono Mountains. The town’s namesake inn welcomes visitors to the historic district, just steps from boutiques, restaurants and pubs housed in 19th century stone buildings. 

Inn at Jim Thorpe features a distinctive bi-level, cast-iron balcony overlooking West Broadway and features 45 rooms. Its antique furnishings are balanced out by modern amenities like free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs and Keurig coffeemakers in each guest room. Accommodations offer the choice of one queen or king bed or two queens while some upgraded suites include extras like whirlpool tubs, refrigerators, microwaves and fireplaces. All guests can book in-room spa treatments and the property’s Broadway Grille & Pub is open for three meals a day. 

Built in 1849, the hotel is on the National Register of Historic Places and hosted President Ulysses S. Grant and Thomas Edison. The hotel is around the corner from the St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, one of the town’s eight National Historic Landmarks, and the Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway, a scenic 16-mile railroad trail through the mountains. The hotel is a 20-minute drive from nearby ski parks.

When we got to our mini-suite it smelled like smoke; I called down to the front desk to see if they had another room available. The man at the front desk said they didn’t have another room available at 24 Broadway, but he would see what he could do; about 15 minutes after he came to our door and said he had another room but wanted us to look at it before moving us. The room was beautiful and I’m sure far more expensive than the room I paid for.

Quaint little town; it wasn’t a great time of year for a visit, as there isn’t a lot to do, but the town people were very friendly. I would return when the weather warms up, or during the holiday season.

We loved that they have a restaurant and bar that are attached to the inn. We didn't have to walk very far after having a few drinks.
