There is finally a secluded and romantic place for couples north of the Caribbean! This wonderful B&B is the best possible place to stay in Jim Thorpe and possibly in all of Pennsylvania. From the moment we pulled into the driveway, we knew we had made the right choice.
I was compelled to stay here after reading the descriptions that Nic and Eileen had on their website. They are both incredible artists that truly love what they do and you can tell by all of the special touches you are surrounded by throughout your stay. The serene colors and natural surroundings are so utterly relaxing that for the first time, in a very long time, my husband and I were happier to stay in and relax on the porch rather than spend all of our time falling into tourist traps.
Don't get me wrong, this is the ultimate stay for people who love the outdoors. They are steps from amazing mountain biking trails, hiking, swimming, shopping, restaurants, historic sightseeing and some of the best white water rafting. They even have free internet service and a computer hooked up 24/7 so that you can search for anything from directions to dinner options.
The room was not only beautiful, but this place was spotless from beginning to end. Even the bathroom looked as if I was their first customer and I am rather picky about stale smells and cleanliness.
The breakfast was excellent and also topped all other meals during the trip. Each morning you were presented with fresh, organic veggies and fruit, apple stuffed french toast, fresh squeezed juices and coffee. What more could you really ask for?
Overall, the best part was meeting and talking with the owners. They were never aggressive or annoying and were really a treat to be around. They are both artists and incredibly creative. You can tour their studios and workshops and even make stained glass with them! They are so nice and always willing to do anything to make your stay as great as ours. And since they have been in the area for so long, they know the ins and outs of everything in the area. I can't wait to go back.
I highly recommend this B&B to all singles and couples. Whether you want to go out and have a great adventure by day and a big comfy sleep by night, or if you just want to read and relax on a beautiful porch while you listen to a thunderstorm, Hill Home Forge is the place you have been searching for.

Our bed & breakfast is perfect for a relaxing retreat, romantic getaway or an active weekend fishing or boating on the lake, rafting on the river or hiking and biking on the mountain trails. Our private woodland hideaway soothes the weary traveler, and offers art and sports lovers active days of art classes, recreation, dining, and shopping. We are on the edge of town where we are sheltered from the noise and traffic, but we are only 1.5 miles from all the attractions and restaurants in historic Jim Thorpe ... more less
