My wife and I just got back from a wonderful weekend at Hillcrest B&B. I can't say enough about what a wonderful experience it was for us. We do not normally stay at B&Bs and in the past we have had some rather uncomfortable experiences when we did. This place, however, was terrific. Bart and Meriel made us feel very... More

A friend & I spent 2 wonderful days at the B&B. We went to Jim Thorpe to ride the Leigh Trail & needed a place to stay. Thru reading numerous web sites I concluded the Hillcrest suited our needs. Upon arriving we were greeted by the owners Meril & Bart. Bart asked if we'd like white or red wine? I... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for the weekend and we had a lovely stay at this bed and breakfast. It was clean, comfortable, and quiet. The breakfasts were excellent, and we loved the hosts. They made us feel right at home. We enjoyed the short walk into town. Yes, the walk is up a hill, but if you are... More

Our friends and us stayed at Hillcrest in the Hamsphire and Devon rooms for the weekend. Enjoyed meeting Bart and Meriel who were history teachers of the area and great conversation took place on many topics. We felt just like home with Dusty cuddling up to us as family. The breakfast each day day was a definite lovely experience. The... More

My wife and I stayed at Hillcrest B & B for a long weekend. I selected the B & B based on reviews, price, and offering a full breakfast, which several in the area offer just a continental breakfast. We arrived, and Bart provided a history of the B & B and the area. My wife especially liked playing with... More

What a wonderful place to stay! We were travelling to a new area, and the Hillcrest B & B provided a good base to explore the area. Bart and Meriel Springer not only provided us a lovely room and breakfasts, but great conversation and detailed knowledge of local sites, attractions and amenities. The hilltop location and garden provided a quiet... More

We celebrated our 50th anniversary with a weekend in Jim Thorpe and among the reasons it was so special was our stay with Bart and Meriel Springer at their Hillcrest B & B. We found that all the positive comments about this lovely B & B in other Trip Advisor reviews were absolutely true. The sumptuous red room, convenient location,... More

A spotlessly clean and charming B&B with two wonderful hosts, Bart and Meriel, who provided a warm welcome with a glass of wine, interesting conversation and endless help in planning activities, dining arrangements and driving routes. My wife and I stayed in the "Red" room in the front of the house. It was very comfortable, with a Queen size bed... More

My husband and I just stayed here recently for a last minute getaway. Most of the other lodgings were booked and it had good reviews so we stayed here and enjoyed it very much. It's quiet and up on the hill above the town. You can walk to town, however you'd best be in decent physical shape because it is... More
