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

We had trouble finding a place in Jim Thorpe and then found this really cozy B&B on the hill with a good view of the town on the other side of the river. Meriel gave us a very warm welcome, which made us feel at home immediately. The room created a simple "wow" out of my mouth - I just... More

My boyfriend and I came here for our first weekend away together. The owners, Bart and Meriel, are the sweetest people. We arrived late at night due to car trouble, and they were still up to welcome us. In fact, Meriel was in the kitchen making the most wonderful-smelling scones (she is from England, and there were adorable English touches... More

We stayed here for two nights during the Fall Foliage Festival. Regular visitors to Jim Thorpe, we have stayed at many BnBs and Hillcrest is one of the best for comfort, service and welcoming atmosphere. The owners went out of their way to accommodate our late arrival in town. The room was beautiful, and the bed was very comfortable. The... More

This could just be one of Jim Thorpe's best kept secretes! From getting checked in to our room to when we left the overflowing amounts of hospitality were second to none! Bart & Meriel are fantastic! The town of Jim Thorpe has tons of great tours and places to eat. To work off some of the excellent food there are... More

My husband and I were treated like royalty from the moment we arrived at the Hillcrest B&B. We arrived and were escorted to a beautiful room, very clean and very interesting with things from England. The bed looked amazing! We went into town and ate an elegant dinner at the Albright Mansion which is now known at Crave 66 on... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend in Jim Thorpe, Pa. The Hillcrest was a big part of our enjoyment. Beautifully furnished, located in a quiet neighborhood. Breakfast was served in the Albright Mansion in town. We also received a discount on our dinner. All of the food was delicious. We visited during the Victorian Weekend. The residents of the town made... More

I had spent weeks doing research and calling around to find the perfect B & B as a surprise trip for my husband's birthday, finally choosing Hillcrest. The day before they called and told me we were double booked for the first night and would have to spend the first night at another B & B, not at all what... More

We have stayed with Meriel and Bart twice in the last 2 years and continue to keep in touch with them. Lovely rooms with en-suite facilities and the food is A1. Jim Thorpe is a really scenic place to visit and a stay at Hillcrest is a must. They have recently opened a Restaurant at 66 Broadway in Jim Thorpe... More

We spent two wonderful nights at this charming B&B on a hilltop overlooking the pretty town of Jim Thorpe.. Our genial and gregarious hosts, Bart and Meriel, went out of their way to make us feel like royalty. Meriel's hearty English breakfasts were excellent and she makes use of fresh herbs which grow in the garden. I look forward to... More
