    Amsterdam Townhouse--city Center Jim Thorpe Near Opera House

    Adults-only apartments in Jim Thorpe
    In an 1800 Victorian home with brilliant pine floors--welcome to our bright spacious newly renovated 1 Bedroom (3rd floor) apartment with complete kitchen and everything you need to enjoy your time in Jim Thorpe. Centrally located to Opera House, downtown Jim Thorpe--wonderful restaurants and museums. Also, space in basement for bicycle storage. In addition, brand new comfortable sleeper sofa in living room so the apartment can accommodate up to 4 guests. We are Laura and Marco—a ‘youngish’ married couple who have recently purchased this 3-unit apartment building near the center of where everything happens in Jim Thorpe. As I, Marco, am from Amsterdam—I immediately fell in love with the historic buildings and, of course, the extraordinary bike riding trails that Jim Thorpe offers to visitors. I, Laura, have lived in NYC/Manhattan for over -30 years and view Jim Thorpe as a bit like the lofts of Soho as well as a much needed place to decompress, unwind and relax from the hectic (yet exciting) life of the big city.Both of our available apartments have been mindfully, carefully and thoughtfully furnished as we view both of them as our homes as well. For example—the kitchen has all the amenities needed for most wannabe chefs. We have nice pots, pans, cutting knives, food processor, crock pot as well as many spices and condiments. Our linens and towels are the highest quality to assure a feeling of luxury. The bathroom is newly renovated with a wonderful tub and lots of hot water.Recently, we have focused on our backyard and created a hand designed brick paved 2-terrace oasis of relaxation, outdoor dining plus an extraordinary gas barbeque, attached charcoal bar-be-que (we have some cherry-wood smoker chips and box) plus a warming plate. We love having our morning coffee outside, relaxing to read a book and then grill some organic steaks from a local butcher and some yummy vegetables from the farmer’s market.On rainy days—we enjoy binge watching on our HD TV and recently finished Game of Thrones. We offer HBO-GO, Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu. Internet and wifi options are limited in Jim Thorpe but we have opted to purchase wifi-extenders through-out the building so the majority of the time we can use our technology whether in the basement or in the backyard.We love bike riding and going to the Mauch-Chunk Lake so much that we have not yet explored all the amazing museums and art galleries—the majority which are within walking distance. Our favorite local activity is the incredible music and acoustics offered at the Jim Thorpe Opera House which is just diagonal from our building. The music they offer are a wide variety and everything we have gone to has been great. Also, nearby is Penn’s Peak where we have a membership. They offer a larger music venue with terrific headlining bands.As Jim Thorpe is built on a river, we love our decision to put the time, money and energy in a basement upgrade that includes an outdoor ramp so we can easily store our bicycles—keep them dry and safe. Plus a slop sink to rinse off after a hot ride or maybe if it was muddy to rinse off our biking shoes. Bike storage is complimentary when you stay with us. Plus we splurged and purchased a Samsung washer and dryer which you are welcome to use. Of course, we appreciate our guests being mindful about the use of water for the machine and use the appropriate washer setting.Guests will have their own private apartment which requires walking up 2 flights of stairs. While we have 2 other apartments--we often do not even hear or see them.In Jim Thorpe most folks are outside enjoying the nature, museums or dining establishments. We use a key fob entry system with a lock (Website hidden by Airbnb) if you want, you have the flexibility to keep the keys in the lock box as you come and go so if you are traveling with a group--you have the flexibility to do things separately and then access the building and apartment via the lock box. The stairs, halls and basement are shared common area's. Your apartment is a private smoke-free environment.If you need to arrive on Friday later than 4pm then free parking on the street near the house may be challenging to find. We recommend parking in front of the building, put on your hazard lights, unload your car in the lobby of our building and pay a nominal $5 to $10 fee at the munipal parking lot by the train station. Often if you arrive after 8pm, the parking lot is free. Then walk only -5 to 10 minutes to our home/your new home.
    Air-conditioned accommodations at this apartment offer fireplaces and coffee/tea makers. Rooms open to patios. Accommodations offer separate living rooms. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and separate dining areas. Additionally, rooms include hair dryers and irons/ironing boards.
