Beautiful home, interesting tiled front porch and Mansard type roof along with a fine cherry paneled library, not to mention the stained glass dining room windows best seen during the afternoon sun. Central Hall with magnificent staircase. Roooms also available in adjacent restored Carriage House.

I went with a group of friends. The tour was informative and the guide was knowledgeable but a little rough around the edges when it came to answering questions. It was definitely worth visiting but be prepared to climb some steps to get to it.

The mansion itself is beautiful and fairly well kept up. The breakfast is lovely, as is the entire town of Jim Thorpe, including all the people in it. However, the murder mystery leaves much to be desired. I'm not sure what everyone is raving about....More

About
Description
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 More 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. Less
