Description of the Jim Thorpe vacation home rental
Winter is coming! Book now for a great getaway. We are just 25 minutes from Blue Mountain. This is one of the great places to stay in Jim Thorpe!

Come and enjoy this lovely house just feet from downtown Jim Thorpe and has the Switchback bike trail in the backyard. No need to get in the car if you want to go into town for shopping or dining.

The rental fee is $450 per weekend/$900 per week.
Holiday weekend prices vary depending upon the holiday.

The home has 4 bedrooms, 1 1/2 bath. The house accommodates 9 people comfortably. Included is a built-in library with books for your reading pleasure.

There is now a Ping Pong table and a dart board for your enjoyment. We have a few bicycles available for a small daily fee.

The home has a fully equipped kitchen, with all amenities, including a microwave, stove, oven, refrigerator, coffee pot, and garbage disposal. There is also a washer and dryer, along with cable television, WIFI, some movie DVDs and an old Sega Saturn gaming system with a few games to bring you back to your childhood.

You will need to provide your own sheets and towels. There are two queen beds, one double, one twin and one pull-out queen couch (we will supply the sheets for the queen couch and twin bed). Bed pillows are supplied. In case someone forgets a towel, we do have a few available.

A $200 security deposit and $60 cleaning fee is requested at the time of booking. Both deposits are refundable within 10 days of your departure as long as the house is left in its original condition.

This is a non-smoking, non-"house party" home.

My family and I have stayed at Bennett Parsonage a couple of times and love it. The house has so much space, but feels so cozy. It's in a good location, just a short walk from the town of Jim Thorpe where there are great restaurants and fun stores to browse. It's a short drive to hiking and rafting and biking. A great getaway! :)

We rented the Bennett Parsonage twice so far and would rent again in the future. Something about the house is very cozy and comfortable. We really like the original architecture, the windows, the doors, the custom built-ins, the details. Something about this house really feels like home. And the town of Jim Thorpe keeps calling us back. Such a beautiful town. The lights at the inn at night, the boutique shops. Just wonderful.

We enjoyed our stay. We were 6 adults and 2 children (ages 3 and 6). Everything in the house was in good condition and worked as expected. The evenings were cool enough that we never needed to turn on the air conditioners.
