I love Victorian homes and was very excited to visit the Asa Packer Mansion. It was even more interesting and beautiful than I expected! Our tour guide was very informative about the house and the Packer family. Everything in the home is beautifully restored, which is no small feat after learning it sat untouched with everything inside for 40 years.... More

We went here while visiting Jim Thorpe, based soley on TripAdvisor reviews. I couldn't imagine how a mansion tour could be that great - but it reallly was!! It was a bit steep (I believe $20pp) but the tour was amazing. Seeing the opulence of the home and everything original - not like a museum but a real home how... More

The tour with Ann was pretty good. The mansion is interesting to make you feel the history of the place.

This mansion was beautiful and very interesting. Our tour guide was an older lady, sorry I can't remember her name. She was fantastic! She made you feel like you were back in time with the Packer family, she was so knowledgeable . If you are interested in antiques and woodwork, you don't want to miss this!

A very informative tour . Our tour guide Karen is rich in knowledge and enthusiasm . The incredible architecture and contents of the home were preserved to a very high degree. Found the tour and property to be great. Use a bathroom before you get there as there are none.

Since i have seen better mansions in Rhode Island and Long Island, i am not sure if this particular mansion is too impressive.

This was one of the most interesting tours I have ever been on. For anyone who loves architecture and history, then this is the tour for you. What an amazing insight into the life of the wealthy during that era. And the thought put into construction that was so far ahead of it's time. The tour ran about 1.5 hours,... More

We were on a trip around the Poconos and decided to stop here. We learned about it on trip advisor. It was an amazing tour. Karen was our tour guide, she was knowledgeable & personable. What a beautiful mansion, belonging to some great people. The only downside is we had to park at the bottom of the steep hill and... More
