Great review for The Harry Packer Mansion

November 30th, 2007 by Mariah

The little Victorian village of Jim Thorpe, PA is a scenic paradise nestled between three mountains in northeastern Pennsylvania. An oasis of history perfectly preserved, the architecture of the Village is purely Victorian. Perched high atop Packer Hill, the Harry Packer Mansion sits like a sentinel overlooking the town.

The mansion’s impressive facade could have been taken from a gothic novel, this is only fitting for the Mansion used as the model for Disney World’s Haunted Mansion! The interior however is anything but spooky. Fifteen foot ceilings, marble fireplaces and gilded mirrors of the parlors reflect the elegance of the Victorian Age. The guest accommodations in the mansion and the adjoining Carriage House are furnished with period antiques, luxurious fabrics, and carefully selected artwork. In addition to offering Bed and Breakfast accommodations the Mansion also hosts Murder Mystery Weekends and special events.

To see what a great property this is and all its rave reviews, simply visit their lisitng on Bed and Breakfast Guide.
