The breakfast food was great, and the mansion is beautiful. Strongly recommend this for a couple looking for a romantic weekend. Not very kid friendly, so...

I really enjoyed my stay at the Mansion. The accommodations very comfortable. I felt at home. The murder mystery was fun. We got to know the other guests and our host. The food was delicious, drinks were top shelf! I plan to return.

We stayed in "gussies room" last weekend. We had a flight of white wines on the porch in the late afternoon. Delightful! Our accommodations were spectacular. The Innkeepers could not have been more accommodating. What delicious breakfast selections . Could not recommend more highly.

There are no words to describe our experience. From the minute we stepped through the door we were treated as family. The mansion itself if beautiful and decorated perfectly to represent the historical period. The owners were VERY accommodating and exceptionally friendly. We felt like we had known them for many, many years. There was a group that spent their...

Traveled to Jim Thorpe PA for the Harry Packer Murder mystery weekend. The owner Pat cheerfully greeted my companion and myself and made us feel welcomed. She explained the weekend itinerary and we also chatted for a while. The weekend involved taking on a role of a character in the mystery. If you are a wallflower and don’t like engaging...

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
