About the neighbourhood
Lazy bums and homebodies need not apply! Recently, Jim Thorpe has become a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. Our home is centrally located to all of the major attractions to this town. In fact, the famous Switchback Trail is accessible right from the house! Whether you bike or hike the 18 mile trail, you will see all that this town has to offer. It's a local favorite as well. In addition, there is rafting, kayaking, paintball (skirmish), boating and fishing to name just a few. A lovely, and short walk away is the downtown area, also know as 'Little Switzerland'. We encourage you to dine at the restaurants and shop at the stores. If time allows, make sure to visit the Asa Packer and Harry Packer Mansions, tour the Old Jail Museum, or take a ride on the famous Lehigh Gorge Railway.
