Check before planning a trip. Seems they are closed in winter until April 2017. TripAdvisor and Jimthorpe.org town research site doesn't know this. The town is closed in winter except for shops, restaurants and wine tastings

To be fair we never actually were able to tour the mansion, which is located at the top of a fairly steep hill. My mother, who is 90, my young daughter and my husband were anxious to tour the mansion before leaving Jim Thorpe. You...More

The lady Tour guide is a true asset to the integrity of what the Mansion represents...just breathtaking craftsmanship in 1861...$14,000 to build, I think the doors in the house are worth $14K.

Our tour guide, Ava(I believe) was awesome! The details and history are fascinating. I definitely recommend and I am not really a history kind of person.

Don't let the 100+ steps up a very steep hill discourage you, the mansion tour is well worth the little huff and puff. Now there are lots of things to do in Jim Thorpe, but don't visit without a tour of the mansion. The cost...More

We learned a lot about the house, Asa Packer and his family. The house is very well preserved, Ann is a knowledgeable docent. The tour took about an hour and was informative and interesting.

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