I highly recommend Mary's Guesthouse. It is meticulously clean and well organized. I enjoy the accommodation because the guesthouse is located on the main street so it is extremely convenient to walk everywhere. I also enjoy the accommodation because it is very affordable, simple and cozy. I have stayed there twice and the place is still kept top notch.
There isn't a TV (which I like) so we had good ol' fun playing the piano, singing and making up games to entertain ourselves. Mind you we're all grown adults and it was still a blast. If playing games as an adult isn't your thing, there is a collection of various books and magazines in the house.
You only have to bring bathroom toiletries, everything else is provided.
Tom runs the place with his wife Michelle and Tom is such a pleasure to deal with. Nice guy, very accommodating, helpful, knowledgeable - really a great person to do business with.
Look forward to returning.

- Mary's Guesthouse is a wonderful home-away-from-home in the historic, Victorian mountain village of Jim Thorpe, PA. Equipped with everything you should need for a pleasant stay, Mary's is set up in the European style of lodging, with a shared 'common area' that features a fully-equipped kitchen, dining room that seats up to 10, and a living room with comfortable furniture for relaxing/reading/talking. There are 3 different lodging rooms (plus one small 'spare room' used by groups), with prices of $60, $75, $85 per room. Two rooms share 1 bath, the other room has its own bathroom. Renting the whole house gets your group of 6 to 10 people a casual, comfy stay that is also economical (starting at $220 per night). Mary's is located steps away from the downtown shopping/dining district, so it's very convenient. Also, note that Mary's is great for families with (well-behaved) children and groups up to 10 people. ... more less
