Overview

About the property

Escape from the ordinary in our circa 1872 Townhouse, close to white water rafti

Experience history with a stay in the Glen Onoko Guesthouse, built in the boom year of 1870 when coal was king and tourism so impressive, Mauch Chunk (our town name before we became Jim Thorpe) was second only to to Niagara Falls!

Original polished wood pillars, wood staircase, and old world woodwork remain from the time period when craftsmanship was an important trade, when Asa Packer was one of the wealthiest men in America, and Mauch Chunk a haven for the region's rich and powerful!

This Victorian style home has retained many unique characteristics including the original facade of a mercantile storefront that was the town's first ice cream shop.

The townhouse features spacious living areas on two floors, in which guests can cook on- site in a modern kitchen with stainless appliances, ice maker... all the conveniences you expect. We even provide coffee, creamer, spices, sugar as an extra convenience, for your stay in your 'Home Away From Home"

Modern updates include a guestroom refresh that's now complete with a new swoon worthy upholstered bed, a brand new I- series mattress, table lamps, wall art and window treatments.A new king bed has been added, with new bedding, ready to pamper our guests in style. A third, cozy bedroom is located next to the full bath.

Amenities include: off street parking, 18,000 btu a/c, a private courtyard, patio tables and umbrellas, large deck and BBQ grill. The entryway door features a keyless entry system. The cafe in the building is open only for special events.

You will find just about everything you need on the same street you are staying on - gas station, bank, wine and spirit store, pharmacy, Urgent Care, ice cream, pizza shops, deli, and the Jim Thorpe Memorial. The grocery store is a few blocks away.
