This was definitely the highlight of our day trip to Jim Thorpe. The story of how long the mansion was preserved for was fascinating. Other than the railroad, this is really the only thing worth doing or seeing in Jim Thorpe.

Our guide was fully knowledgeable about the Packer family. We learned how he amassed his fortune and spent his life in Mauch chauch . Truly worth the price to see how an 1800’s empire was built.

Been to Jim Thorpe a few times but never visited the Mansion. Magnificent structure which has been very well preserved. The tour cost $9.00 for seniors. I would not suggest it for children. The tour takes about 45 minutes and you visit all 3 floors....More

Yes, there is a significant incline. Some of it steps, some sidewalk. The mansion sits high on a hill overlooking the town.
