We've been guests to the Inn for over 6 years. When we told the inn manager, Martha that the new inn keepers were providing guests with drinks and sexual propositions, not to mention, domestic disturbances and frequent cop visits, we were told we would no longer be welcomed to stay there. We have seen it go from a lovely, quiet... More

Very clean, quiet escape...but close to a enchanting lil town with so much history and excursions to enjoy. Our room had a wonderful out door sitting area, comfy bed and a jacuzzi tub for the two of us to comfortably enjoy. We had treats of freshly baked cookies in our room to welcome us. In the morning fresh baked muffins... More

It is a lovely, quaint , and romantic getaway just minutes from town. The inn keeper staff and decor could not be more welcoming. All rooms equipped with jacuzzi and separate bathroom. With beautiful views and reasonable rates it is a Hidden gem. Thank you , Sandy

We decided to get away for the day. We had reservations at area hotel. On our way to Jim Thorpe, called various inns for any last minute room availability. Two inns put us on a wait list. One suggested we try Whitehurst. They said they had one room available, took all our information, including complete credit card information. We then... More

Unfortunately a communication error was made here. Not sure exactly how it happened but when this guest called they were given incorrect information that we had a room available when in fact we did not. We apologized for the mistake but we were completely booked. Unfortunately, no one else had any last minute availability either. They were not charged for... More

We stayed in room 2F, which had a nice big King size bed, clean bathroom and Jacuzzi. Everything was clean and we really enjoyed happy hour on the back porch overlooking the town and the mountains. The walk to the downtown is about 20-25 minutes, which isn't bad on the way down but it was kind of long at 11:00... More
