We invite you and welcome you into our home. Become our guest. Nic and I designed and built Hill Home Forge, and for the last 15 years it has been our greatest pleasure to share it with you. Here you'll enjoy the peace and solitude of the surrounding forest. You can hike or bike nearby woodland trails including the famous Switchback trail. We’re very close to the historic district, but you’d never know by looking out your windows. Mauch Chunk Lake is our next door neighbor where you can go boating, fishing and swimming. We cook a full country breakfast including my world famous apple stuffed French toast. I’ve polished the recipe over time until I’ve got the perfect blend of granny smith apples, homemade bread and Vermont maple syrup. My eggs come from a local farm. Delicious

Unique and lovely

4.6 on August 03, 2018

This B&B was wonderfully unique in its design and decor. The food was good and the room was clean and had everything we needed. Close but removed from the hustle and bustle of the downtown area it was perfectly located.

Secluded retreat

Eileen was the perfect hostess. This is a great location for anyone who wants to spend some time in Jim Thorpe. Our overnight “date night” included a lovely dinner and Jim Thorpe, a concert at Penn’s Peak followed by champagne on the veranda off the Woodland Loft. The apple French toast lived up to its Internet fame. Eileen took us on a special tour of her husbands artist workshop. His creations are remarkable! We will be back.

Awesome getawy

5 on May 13, 2018

I felt like we were staying in a warm and comfortable museum. We were surrounded by beautiful artwork, a lovely garden, and woods. We had gourmet breakfasts, including stuffed french toast made from home made bread. Being a short distance from town allowed us to enjoy the shops and restaurants and then retreat to our quiet place in the woods When our bike train ride was rained out we were disappointed until we realized that this was a good excuse to return soon.

Cute and quite

I loved this place... it was close the historical town and hikes. The bnb itself felt better than staying at a Hyatt size hotel.

Lovely, quiet getaway

4.4 on November 24, 2017

Our stay at Hill Home Forge was absolutely lovely. The area was quiet and allowed good views from the top of the hill, and we had easy access to hiking trails and restaurants. Hill Home Forge is full of beautiful art made by the owners, and our room was cozy -- so much so we found it difficult to leave! But it was worth getting out if only for Eileen's scrumptious apple-stuffed French toast. We would definitely stay here again.

Great Pocono Getaway

This eclectic, artsy B&B was the perfect escape. It's secluded, yet very close to town; immersed in the nature of the mountain landscape; and the owners were welcoming and kind. She was an excellent cook too! Definitely recommend!

Peaceful Spot!

A great stay here! . A nice spot close to the hustle and bustle of town but in the woods close to a hiking trail. The room was spacious, very clean and quiet. Breakfasts were delicious. Nick and Eileen enjoy the arts and gave us a tour of the glass studios and house.

Relaxing get away

4.6 on October 24, 2016

Very nice roomy charming get away in the woods outside of town. Great find! We had the Woodland Loft with a cute balcony with bistro table / chairs overlooking Eileen's beautiful tranquil garden/water feature area. The windows allowed us to see the Fall foliage from any area of the room! The fireplace with chairs to sit around and enjoy was a great touch! Love the stain glass, ironworks and hand wood carved details everywhere you look / see all made by Nic on site in his studio which is amazing! Eileen is a most gracious host with her homemade breakfast. Nic has great stories and showed us around the BnB and his studio. Thoroughly enjoyed our time there. We will definitely be back!

A feast for a hungry soul

5 on July 28, 2014

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.
