We enjoyed our time looking at all the original artifacts in the mansion. I was a little surprised they let you walk on some of the original carpets. They had throw rugs over the area instead if something that fully covered the rug. Some beautiful...More

We enjoyed a lovely day in Jim Thorpe. A nice walk followed by a terrific lunch (Stella’s) then the tour of the mansion. What it lacks in scale it makes up for with grandiosity! Gold leaf, crystal, amazing wood work and all the modern conveniences...More

If you enjoy history this is the place to visit. When you enter from the porch you leave the present behind and visit the late 1800’s. The docent was knowledgeable and friendly as she led us through this beautiful mansion. The house is as it...More

The location is beautiful and the house is probably better preserved than most places we have visited. The tour was 60-70 minutes and too long in our opinion - a 20 minute tour would have sufficed. The house is closed off so it’s tough to...More

After a leisurely train ride on LSR we went up to tour the Asa Packer Mansion. It was a sweltering 90 plus day but the silver storage room was cool! Kathy was a wonderful tour guide, she was informative and friendly. The house is full...More
