We stayed at the mansion for the murder mystery weekend, and it was great. Bob was hilarious, the parts were well thought out, and the food was great. The mansion was so pretty, and the carriage house (where we stayed) was very quaint and cute. I definitely plan to come back again.

Just returned from Murder Mystery Weekend stay at Harry Packer Mansion. It was a perfect way to celebrate our September birthdays as we had a wonderful time. The hosts Pat & Bob do a terrific job making everyone feel welcome and the nightly mystery rounds were great fun. We stayed in the Carriage House and the rooms were lovely, got... More

Spent one night in Harry's Suite and thoroughly enjoyed visiting with the owners Pat and Bob. They have done a wonderful job restoring this historical mansion. You cannot beat the beautiful and peaceful view from their outdoor veranda. If we are ever back in the area we would love to stay for their murder mystery weekend.

Our company held their annual meeting at the Harry Packer Mansion Inn this past week. Attendees (12) from all over the country participated and were very impressed with the Mansion accomodations, the friendly/professional service provided by the entire staff, local restaurants and outdoor activity options.

Meetings don't have to be in a conference room to be productive! As a former corporate marketing director I always thought that meetings could be much more useful if the setting was wonderful. We enjoy having companies treat their people to a special location and we think that the increase in productivity makes it very worthwhile. Hope to see you... More

Came here for the Murder Mystery Weekend with my best friend. At first, we thought it was pricey, but once you think about it paying approximately $300 each for the whole weekend is SO worth it: two night stay, murder mystery, breakfast both mornings, & dinner Saturday night... Not to mention you're staying over in a very historical mansion... Completely... More

My husband and I had been talking about going to Jim Thorpe for some time and finally decided to visit last month.

After our "host" ran out to greet us with "I didn't realize you were on a motorcycle" we were glad we prepaid because she wouldn't have checked us in otherwise. We were asked before we even got inside to "make sure you do not start the bike at night because it would make problems"! As we have our own high... More

I regret to write this response because I don't want to embarrass you or your wife but the reputation of our business makes this impossible to ignore. We did report your threats of multiple negative reviews posted by you and your friends to trip advisor. We hoped this would all go away before it went public but to no avail.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built as a wedding present in 1874, the Harry Packer Mansion now serves as a luxury inn within the Mauch Chunk Historic district of Jim Thorpe, PA, just 1 1/2 hours from Philadelphia and NYC.The Mansion was used by Disney as a model for the Haunted Mansion so it is only fitting that it is known for its award-winning Murder Mystery Weekends. Voted the best Murder Mystery weekend by the Book of Lists and recently the best on the East Coast by NPR. Come for the murder weekend, visit during the week for a quieter experience, stop by and enjoy a glass of wine on the veranda or take a tour through the mansion. ... more   less
