Amazing mansion with an amazing history. Our docent, a petite lady, made the Packer Family come alive ! Truly the highlight of our visit to Jim Thorpe.

I visited Asa Packer Mansion on Saturday November 19 2022. We parked in a lot across the street for $12.00 that was good until 6:00 am. We climbed several stairs to the mansion. I paid $12.00 for one adult for a tour of the mansion. Our tour guide was nice, a bit hard to hear at times and our group was so large sometimes we all didn't fit in the rooms. To my surprise we were not allowed to take photos and we didn't get an answer as to why. We did receive upon completion of the tour six postcards. Our tour guide seemed to know very little about the property, history and the family who lived there. She didn't take any questions. The mansion itself is impressive. I think if we had a more interactive tour guide and a smaller group this tour would be more enjoyable. Overall the tour was ok but won't be back for another tour.

Do not visit this place. Rude, nasty empolyee. Extremely difficult to get tickets to this place. Way too many stairs to climb to get to the mansion.

Be forewarned: the tour is interesting and worth the visit, but the hours are unpredictable and the staff are unprofessional and inconsiderate! We showed up a little before the opening at 11:00 am only to be turned away because they had a private event. They refused to let us buy tickets in advance for the next available tour, and were told we couldn’t even wait on the grounds (supposedly open to the public) until the gate would be opened at 12:30. Returning at 12:15 we were informed they were sold out and were directed to leave immediately in the rudest way I’ve ever been treated in my life. Again we were refused the option to buy tickets for the next tour. This place is way up a hill and stairs— walking up and down more than once is a killer. Luckily a friendly older couple offered to sell us their tickets so we did get to enjoy the tour, but we were so soured on Jim Thorpe after a few days of similarly horrendous treatment everywhere else that we cut short our stay and left for home a day early.

Our tour guide Sherlie was knowledgeable and friendly. It was interesting to discover the history of AsaPacker. The mansion is full of original pierces which is why you can’t take any photos. They have postcards for sale really cheap for any pics you may want. The view from the top of the hill is breathtaking. Unfortunately we could not go on the third floor due to a leaky roof which can not be fixed at this time due to lacking funding.

We have been to Jim Thorpe several times and this is the first time we visited the Asa Packer Mansion. We are so happy we did! It is rare that you will find a historic home that has all of the original furnishings. Usually the antiques and valuables have been sold off and replicas have been put in place. This is not the case with this mansion! Asa Packer was so a wonderful philanthropic man, whose generosity made a huge impact to the Lehigh Valley and beyond!

Beautiful and artful woodwork and mounding in this old home. Well worth the climb up the hill and stairs to see. Take the time to go next door for a cocktail on the poarch.

The climb to the Manson with its MANY steps was challenging but worth it. Enjoyed learning about all the charitable foundations Mr Packer funded as did his daughter. Very interesting.

This was a great tour. I loved finding out the history of the mansion and staying next door at the sons mansion for the murder mystery event was a added bonus.
