Libations lounge, if you've never been here it's highly recommended you take a trip and visit the lounge. The environment is relaxed, the bartenders excellent and the cheeseplate delicious.

This was definitely the highlight of our day trip to Jim Thorpe. The story of how long the mansion was preserved for was fascinating. Other than the railroad, this is really the only thing worth doing or seeing in Jim Thorpe.

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