My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. I must say the pictures do not do justice, the mansion is magnificent. The furnishings are authentic antiques, the woodwork is hand carved, just really stunning. Our room was bigger than I expected, the bed was so comfortable and the sheets luxurious. The Inn is spotless, we felt...

My husband and I recently stayed at the Harry Packer Mansion for one of their Murder Mystery weekends. We had a blast!! Bob, who runs the mysteries, is hilarious and is so knowledgeable about the town of Jim Thorpe. The rooms are well maintained yet still are able to keep its "historic" feel. I would highly recommend a stay here!...

Was really looking forward to our stay after checking out the pictures and reviews...sadly our stay was a real disappointment. Food was poor/had passed it sell by date, our room was extremely uncomfortable, there was no wifi and the staff were very rude. I think we might have settled for one or two drawbacks, but not this many given the...

We stayed the weekend and experienced the Weekend Mystery. It was fun and full of interesting facts that you won't hear or see in any books. The Manson is not only Historical but an amazing site in its self. The town is quaint and a delight to visit. The railroad trip is well worth the time also. We really enjoyed...

We wandered up on a warm February Saturday afternoon to sit on the porch to relax. We were not disappointed. The hostess was so welcoming. We sat on the porch and enjoyed cocktails and a cheese tray. Then a thunderstorm rolled in (which happily gave us an excuse to stay even longer!). We relocated to inside the mansion and enjoyed...

When my husband says to me that whatever it costs, it's worth it, he is saying a whole lot about this fabulous place. The mansion built on a mountain overlooking the town has been meticulously refurbished as have many of the buildings in the town. The mystery is deliciously presented by Inspector Bob who also relates the history of the...

This quaint mansion in Jim Thorpe PA is walking distance (up and down hills) to the cute town. The mansion is quaint but a bit dusty....but the B & B atmorphere created a closeness and comraderie with other people there for the murder mystery. The breakfast was a buffet but not for picky eaters like myself. The best meal was...

We celebrated my daughter's 21st birthday at the mansion. The murder mystery was very entertaining. Our hosts Bob and Pat went above and beyond to make our weekend away special. The food was very good and the town is gorgeous! My family is looking forward to returning.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built as a wedding present in 1874, the Harry Packer Mansion now serves as a luxury inn within the Mauch Chunk Historic district of Jim Thorpe, PA, just 1 1/2 hours from Philadelphia and NYC.The Mansion was used by Disney as a model for the Haunted Mansion so it is only fitting that it is known for its award-winning Murder Mystery Weekends. Voted the best Murder Mystery weekend by the Book of Lists and recently the best on the East Coast by NPR. Come for the murder weekend, visit during the week for a quieter experience, stop by and enjoy a glass of wine on the veranda or take a tour through the mansion. ... more   less
