“Fun and romantic getaway ”
Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

We are so glad we stayed at the Times House for our Christmas getaway to Jim Thorpe! Our innkeepers greeted us at arrival and were very kind and helpful. Our room was spacious and decorated beautifully. It overlooked Race street. We loved that we could hear the church bells from nearby churches and whistles blowing from the trains. Our room was well stocked with water, coffee, hot chocolate, yogurt and fruit. We were provided delicious scones and muffins for breakfast. We were thrilled to find an apple cake after returning from dinner and a show at the opera house Friday night. Saturday we found Christmas movies and a carrot pecan cake had been left outside our door... Perfect for a snowy day! We are a young couple who love to explore. The town of Jim Thorpe was a perfect setting for our Christmas getaway and the Times House was a wonderful place to stay. We enjoyed it so much that we hope to return in the summer! - Taryn and Dan

We stayed in the Elegance Suite and it was just gorgeous-lovely decor! Lovely room and the homemade food was delicious - A private breakfast in your room make for romantic mornings. I liked that breakfast was at your leisure once it was all ready and right n our room for when we chose to eat :D Loved that everything is within walking distance from the B&B - Moya is pretty much right across the street! Jim Thorpe is a great little town. Will be back again!

Room Tip: Elegance Suite has it's very own private entry right off the street!

We had an amazing time in Jim Thorpe wandering the streets, the lovely shops and restaurants. By far the highlight was our stay at Times House. Diane and Chris are thoughtful innkeepers and our room was romantic and extremely comfortable. And P.S. Diane is an amazing baker!! Thank You for a lovely weekend get-away!! (and thanks for the extra chocolate cherry muffins). Mark and Anita

Upon our arrival, Diane and Chris, the innkeepers, greeted us warmly and helped us with our luggage and bikes. Chris then took our car and parked it for us in their lot down some steps ( it was a tight fit due to the town being sold out for the fall festival). We stayed in the Elegance room which was huge with a dining table, living room area with TV, couch, and easy chair. The queen bed at the far end of the room in an alcove was very comfortable. There were snacks in the room, and bottled water, juices, yogurt, fruit in the fridge. We were given a bottle of wine celebrating our anniversary and Diane baked a cake for my wife's birthday. The room was perfectly equipped and Diane baked muffins and other sweets for breakfast ( and she is an excellent baker). The room was very clean as well. The inn is in a perfect location within walking distance to everything. As a frequent reviewer on Tripadvisor I try to give accurate reports both good and bad so be assured that this review is accurate.

We loved our stay at Times House. The room was adorable. We kept going on and on about the pretty bathroom, which had been recently remodeled. In fact, the entire inn is being rehabbed. That may turn some people off, but we found it interesting. The room was a good size with nice antique furniture, large windows, a comfortable bed, a small fridge, and an electric fireplace. The owners of the Times House were kind and welcoming. They brought us wonderful baked goods (and egg-free for one of us who doesn't eat eggs!). The location is perfect--it's one street above the main street. We had a wonderful time and hope to go back someday.

We just recently returned from a great little weekend trip to Jim Thorpe and had a very nice stay at the Times House. We stayed in the new Serenity room on the third floor-it was beautiful! You can tell a lot of care was taken with choosing the decor from the antique furniture to the pretty carpet and the soothing color choices of pale blue and green. The bathroom was very spacious and complete with Jacuzzi tub. The room is at the back of the house so it was quiet and peaceful. Breakfast each morning was fruit, yogurt, tea, coffee, and the best of all, delicious home baked cakes, scones, muffins, etc. The crumb cake was amazing! Breakfast is delivered to your room the day before so you can eat anytime the next morning. There was also a cookie jar with some little treats in it like granola bars and crackers. The bed and breakfast is located on pretty Race Street so you're away from the hustle and bustle of Broadway, which I liked. Race Street has a bit to offer as far as some cute little shops and a restaurant or two. It is barely a block from the Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway and almost right next to the church of St. Mark and St. John. We had such a nice and relaxing stay at the Times House that we didn't want to leave, I'm sure we'll be back!

This was my 1st trip to Jim Thorpe. After looking at reviews and pictures, I chose The Times House. I'm so glad I did! They have 2 rooms listed on their website, but have recently opened a 3rd room upstairs. This is the room we stayed in. I have to say, this was one of the most comfortable beds i have ever slept in!! There is a small table and chairs for you to enjoy the fresh made baked goods provided. during a 2 day stay we were treated to peach pecan muffins, chocolate covered strawberries, crumb cake and the best cranberry scones. There is also a coffee maker and a fridge stocked with water, orange juice, and yogurt. We also recieved a bottle of wine from a local vineyard. Our bathroom was very nice also-soft fluffy towels and robes were provided. I loved that the sink stand was an old singer sewing stand. The owner (very nice) met us upon arrival and showed us to our room. She also made sure we could contact her if we had any questions or needed anything. We enjoyed ourselves so much during our time here that we would definitely stay here again
