My sister and I wanted to get away for the weekend we went to Hill Home Forge. Only 2 miles away from town, or a mile the other way to some great hiking trails. Eileen and Nick were wonderful host, the property breathtaking. It was what my sister and I needed to celebrate our lives cancer free. We plan to go back stay longer and bring a friend, we enjoyed it that much! The only regret is we went by motorcycle and had to leave in the middle of tour because of the treat of rain.

We needed a place to stay last minute and we called every hotel and B& B in the area and everything was totally booked. I kept searching and searching and came across this lovely place and i am so glad we did! The room was wonderful and very clean and Nic and Eileen were perfect hosts! We definitely will be going back!
That's a lovely review. Thank you.

We stayed in the Woodland Loft room to celebrate our 30th anniversary. It was such a relaxing, inviting place! Secluded, but a short drive to town. Nic & Eileen were gracious hosts. We enjoyed our private balcony, as well as sitting on the back porch while waiting for breakfast. Nics stained glass work is amazing! Will definitely go back to this beautiful property again ;o)

Break away from the ordinary and book a visit to this beautiful property! Tucked in the trees,amongst hiking trails and gorgeous scenery, you will discover a peaceful retreat. The rooms are spotless,the breakfasts are tasty and Nic and Eileen are gracious and fascinating. The history behind this property will amaze you. Their hard work and dedication to a dream is yours to enjoy. The artwork and workshop/studio are not to be missed. Bustling downtown Jim Thorpe is only a few minutes away,yet returning "home" will feel like your own private oasis! Been here a few times and always a consistent treat!

Tucked away in the woods, but not ten minutes from the heart of Jim Thorpe is this amazing art treasure of Hill Home Forge. Cozy, friendly, accommodating, and good food. It had it all, including art lessons!

I just wanted to share an excellent experience I had at Hill Home Forge in the cozy town of Jim Thorpe, Pa. I booked this weekend in search for a romantic and quality experience and I was not disappointed in the least. The rooms were immaculate and had everything you thought you forgot. All furniture and appliances were in "like new" condition and finally I found a bed that I could actually sleep in comfortably. The breakfast prepared by Eileen with pride was fresh and delicious. Nic was an excellent host and he shared some very interesting stories about the area if you were interested in knowning about them and if you weren't, he sensed it and just let you relax. Eileen and Nic are gifted with artist's flair and it shows throughout the inn. The inn is tucked into the woods far enough but close enough to town that you could be there in minutes. I have been to quite a few bed and breakfasts and I STRONGLY recommend this inn to anyone looking for a sure thing experience. We had the suite for Valentine's Day weekend and guess where we're going next year. Thank you to the wonderful hosts.

My girlfriend and I stayed at Hill Home Forge this past summer and absolutely loved it. Nic and Eileen made us feel welcome from the time we got there, and the place was warm, welcoming and quaint. They have some interesting decorations around, thanks to Nic's artwork. The location is just outside of town, so you would have to drive into downtown Jim Thorpe, but that worked really well for us, and being about a mile outside of town let us feel distanced from the downtown scene and more in a country setting. The food was also phenomenal. I could not say enough good things about Hill Home Forge and we would definitely stay there again.

This stay was a present to my husband. I thought he would enjoy learning about working with stained glass and he had a good time and learned a lot about the process. Nic and Eileen have done an amazing renovation on their home and Nic was full of information and enthusiasm for his work. The breakfasts were delicious and it is worth the time to get away to such a unique place.

Hill Home Forge was the perfect place to stay if you wanted to visit Jim Thorpe but not stay in the down town area. The Forge was surrounded by nature and hiking trails but then was only a 5 min drive into town. The artwork was also extremly interesting and beautiful! We loved it and will be going back!
