Constructed in 1844 for the Reverend Richard Webster, 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 former 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.
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.
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.
This 'storied' room was originally the Parson's office, then a school room! Now our two-room suite, it is our largest and poshest room. King size bed and a separate sitting area, with it's own coffee & tea area, and. Individual Heat and AC, and of course- private bath. A very private and intimate space!
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!
