My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights for a quick weekend trip to Jim Thorpe. The space was just right - good size, very clean, comfortable furnishings, and an overall cozy feel. The location was also nice, as it is an easy drive to downtown Jim Thorpe. I definitely recommend staying here!
For my first AirBnb experience, I give this 5 stars! The guest house I stayed in was very clean, cozy, modern, and has everything you would need to stay a day or a couple of weeks. The neighborhood was very quiet, and there was plenty of privacy to be had. Jackie is very prompt in communication, a courteous host, and professional in every regard. For the price and location in the beautiful Pocono mountain region in Pennsylvania, forget hotels, check into the Penn Forest Guest House!
What a lovely place. Very well kept and cozy in a quaint, forest country. We loved reading the guest book and enjoyed the room very much. Thank you!
The place was lovely---a little old school but cozy and charming and super clean and warm. Everything was as described and promised. Jackie was extremely prompt and polite. We checked in and out without even meeting her, but she sent all pertinent info via email/text. The area is about 15 min from the very cute town of Jim Thorpe and an hour from Blue Ski Mountain. A definite recommendation to anyone looking for a spacious and comfortable cabin in the Poconos
Jackie was a lovely host! Due to a crazy snow storm, which resulted in some maintenance issues, we thought our trip was going to be cancelled... but Jackie went above and beyond to get everything fixed and ready for what turned about to be an amazing weekend. Thanks so much Jackie!
Another excellent night's stay. CLEAN, quiet and comfortable.
Jackie is an AMAZING host. The place is extremely comfy and convenient. Everything you need is there and available. Bring your own food if you cook, there's markets a few miles away. We will definitely come back in the spring!
Jackie's cottage style studio was an ideal place for us to stay. Within 3 days we explored 3 different state parks and experienced the downtown scene in Jim Thorpe. I highly recommend this place to any visitor! She was very accommodating with bath towels, games, magazines, cooking appliances, and extra blankets. We felt like we were at home in her place especially with the furnace and rocking chair!
This is a great location if you plan to attend a concert at Penns Peak, which is less than 7 miles away. Jackie was there if needed, but not if you want privacy.
The one room apartment with a small kitchen and bath has all of the amenities needed for a short stay. Clean and warm, I would stay here aagain when in the area.
Can't wait to go back! so quaint, clean, and comfortable. beautiful neighborhood and jackie was a pleasure to communicate with.
