The Parsonage Bed & Breakfast

61 West Broadway , Jim Thorpe, PA 18229 USA (Show map)


Constructed in 1844, The Parsonage is the oldest, unaltered structure in historic Jim Thorpe! Guests have their choice of four art and antique filled bedrooms, each with its own distinct personality, and each with a private bath; also offering a very special two-room suite-- in the old Parson's Office! Great wifi, private off street parking and a full fabulous breakfast is included [ we call it 'Coal Cracker Spa'; the emphasis is on local fresh seasonal ingredients ] and happily tailored to meet your dietary requirements. Comfortable and cozy, the living room is just waiting for you to take off your shoes, prop up you feet, pour a cup of tea or crack open a bottle of wine -- and unwind. A “coffee lounge” is available 24/7 and is stocked with a variety of brews, teas and biscotti. A screened gazebo on the back terrace is a fun and breezy spot to while away the afternoon when one might be feeling lazy -- or an ideal spot to “picnic” with 'take-away' from one of the nearby restaurants. Best of all. we are conveniently located within walking distance of the Opera House, shops, restaurants, art galleries, museums and the Scenic Railway! Hiking and biking and skiing are all within a 5 to 20 minute drive.

Felt like home

Our family stayed here for our son's wedding which was 2 doors down at the Mauch Chunk Ballroom. It was so convenient and comfortable! Maureen was the perfect hostess, made us feel so welcome, has a great sense of humor and what a cook! There really is nothing negative to say about our stay and would highly recommend staying at the Parsonage if you like comfy cozy surroundings and delicious food at a centrally located spot. Thanks again Maureen for a wonderful experience!!

Cozy B&B

Beautiful, secluded, screened gazebo on the hill behind the house. Candles and matches were available. What a romantic way to spend the evening.

I fell in love with this town on my first visit on April 16th 2011. It only improved with my visit to " The Parsonage " . Only way to improve on this place for me and my soulmate would be to go there as often as possible. You have to experience this place to appreciate it. Mere words can't describe how lovely The Parsonage is.

The Highlight of Our Visit to Jim Thorpe!

Our experience at The Parsonage B & B was everything that it ought to be. Our Innkeeper was a magnificent hostess from the moment I called to make the reservation until the day we checked out. Our room was clean cozy and restful, and our breakfasts were delicious. Maureen also gave us a lot of helpful information about the places of interest in Jim Thorpe. In a word, this B & B is "EXCELLENT!"

What a wonderful place

You couldn't ask for more. Breakfast was outstanding. An easy walk to downtown...(on-line search maps are deceiving). King size beds in at least two rooms. Nice open living room with snacks all day. Owner offered interesting and helpful local sightseeing, restaurant & historical information.

Great place to stay with a great hostess

Nice bed and breakfast. We could walk to town and other sites. The innkeeper was very helpful with informing us on places to visit, things to do and even directions on how to get home! She was very knowledgable about the history of town as well. Breakfasts were very good. Usually fruit or pastry followed by a main dish...very good! Pear stuffed waffle was my favorite!

Great B&B!

The Parsonage is a great B & B. The lobby was simple and not a traditional B & B looby - but once you proceed to the second and third floors, a wonderful sitting area and dining room awaits. Very Charming ! The food was great - rooms comfy, host was lovely and accomadating. We would definately return.

Great time!

Enjoyed our stay during the St. Patty's Day Parade. Maureen was very nice and helpful in finding some wonderful dining experiences for us. The little luncheon Maureen had during the parade, just made us feel at home, and wanting to go back. It was a fun experience even with the rain.

A lovely time

Thanks to Maureen and her wonderful breakfasts and helpful advice, our stay at the Parsonage was a truly peaceful and envigorating time. We highly recommend it to anyone and of course the town of Jim Thorpe is lovely also.

Rooms & Rates

William's Room

This would be the room we stayed in when we were first exploring the possibility of purchasing “The Parsonage”, so comfortable, cozy and quiet, it for sure helped to make our decision. The dark richly papered walls are home to a collection of favorite botanicals and “bird-tanicals” from the pens and presses of William Curtis, Pancrae Bessa, James Bolton and Shaw & Nodder. A Queen size iron bed and favorite English antiques finish out the room.

  • Maximum Capacity: 2
  • Bathroom Private Bath
  • Beds 1 Queen

John's Room

Without question, John's room is the quietest room in the house, soft blue gray walls, comtemplative views on the back gardens, warm aged antiques and hung with a soothing collection of American Impressionism and Plein Air paintings. Curl up in a classic queen size four poster bed and just chill.

  • Maximum Capacity: 2
  • Bathroom Private Bath
  • Beds 1 Queen

Margaret's Room

This room is currently in renovation and will be ready for viewing and booking shortly.

Elinor's Room

Elinor’s room is on the Northeast corner of the house, fronts Broadway, hosts a view of the street, continuing on up into the hills above. Great morning light and the only “king" bed in the house, crowned with carved “eagle" headboards from the 1930’s! A killer collection of American Folk Art and antique French “REBUS” plates make this room…..oh, so playful!
