Beautiful and fascinating history! The tour guides really told their story well. The home is huge! The carving on the woodwork was detailed and intricate. Worth seeing!

This was definitely a highlight during our stay. Our tour guide was very nice and not only did she know so much about the Packer family/history you can tell she enjoyed/appreciated her job. It was also very affordable.

This has to be one of the best tours we have seen anywhere. Packer was one of the richest men no one has ever heard. Great stories and history, fantastic mansion and unbelievable views. 10 bucks. What a bargain. Very impressed with our tour guide.

If you’re in Jim Thorpe this a must-see historical venue. Didn’t know anything about Asa Packer prior to arrival but found the well-preserved mansion and the family’s history fascinating. Have done a lot of old mansion tours and this was one of the most interesting.

I was very impressed by an old mansion, that had been boarded up for decades and to be in such pristine condition for its age. Our tour guide was welcoming, intelligent, informative and entertaining to boot! A must see place if you're in Jim Thorpe.

Great tour of the mansion. The history that was explained was very interesting. The house was boarded up for years so it's like going back in time. It's a great tour if love antiques and history.

Yes, there is a significant incline. Some of it steps, some sidewalk. The mansion sits high on a hill overlooking the town.
