The Harry Packer Mansion Inn is worth checking out. The atmosphere is quiet and historic. Breakfast was fantastic with great views of the mountainside from the balcony and bar. There is also a sitting area outside the carriage house we enjoyed. I would recommend staying at the Harry Packer Mansion rather than the hotel in town. We stayed the first weekend in October during the Fall Festival.
- 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
