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.
