Ellen and Richard are the most welcoming hosts. The B and B is lively. The Blue room was spacious. The breakfast was delicious and the ability to sit and look out at the main road was so cozy!! Recommend it highly.

In December, we visited the Manor for the first time in winter. WOW! What a new look at Jim Thorpe in the snow. Just walking through town in the light snow was like being there for the first time. Our hosts recommended the train ride through Lehigh Gorge, UNBELIEVABLE. As always the DeFeos was marvelous hosts as was Kathy, their long time housekeeper. Can't wait to return.

We always try to stay at the The DeFeo"s B&B when we are visiting Jim Thorpe , Richard and Ellen always make us feel comfortable.Although they say continental breakfast it is more besides warm croissants ,fruit cup and sliced pound cake which is left outside the door on a food cart the room also stocks oatmeal ,cereal.and granola bars and ice cold orange juice,coffee maker, tea and to pick on during your stay,in the room are chocolates cheese and crackers.They are always so pleasant and always find the time to share a glass of wine with us when possible.They are always on our return list when available.

Room Tip: corner suites are large and sunny

We recently stayed at The DeFeo Manor in Jim Thorpe, PA.
Richard and Ellen are the most welcoming genuine people you will meet. They provided us with a list of highly recommended choices for dinner and happenings around the town.
The Manor is a Victorian masterpiece and provides excellent views of the town below. We stayed in the Bella suite and felt very comfortable there. The hosts did not miss any details in providing for our every need, we appreciate their thoughtfulness and attention to detail. The home provides alot of history and is a great place to tour especially the craftsmanship in the wood work.
Thank you Richard and Ellen for a nice and much needed overnight trip away!
We would recommend this B&B to anyone traveling to Jim Thorpe.

Room Tip: The turret in the Bella Suite provided an excellent place to view the falling snow.

The property overall seemed worn and not well maintained. Although it was clean and comfortable and the proprietors were quite pleasant. The breakfast was more like a continental and not a full breakfast.

My wife and I recently had the pleaseure of spending the weekend at DeFeo's Manor B&B (for the second time!) in Jim Thorpe, PA and it was marvelous! Perfectly relaxing. We are from Philadelphia, my wife was raised in Center City, so the respite from the hustle and bustle was much needed. The Manor is an amazing Victorian-era house and offers top-of-the-line access to Broadway and all of its quaint shops. Every room is filled with artistic creations and priceless collectibles, all courtesy of the very hospitable hosts Richard and Ellen DeFeo. We'd stayed in the Suite before, but this time we had the Deco Room, a themed room based on the art deco look of the 20's and 30's, and my personal favorite! The rooms are very cozy and well-kept thanks to their wonderful caretaker Kathy, and there was even a complimentary breakfast! Can't wait to go back!

My husband and I spent the night at DeFeo's Manor as a rare get away for the two of us. Richard and Ellen were extremely welcoming and hospitable. Our room "Blue Room" was spacious and had cute touches all over plus little extras like bowls of chocolate, granola bars, etc. Ellen made an excellent dinner recommendation and we really enjoyed exploring the town overall. We stayed in a pretty cold night and the heat in our room worked perfectly and kept us warm. I accidentally left my glasses in the room which I didn't realize until we got back to NYC and Richard and Ellen were kind enough to send them to me no questions asked. I look forward to a future stay at DeFeo's!
