The Kennedy House

Guest House located in the heart of Historic Jim Thorpe


Located in the heart of Jim Thorpe, The Kennedy House provides its guests with a comfortable and relaxing stay in a quaint historic 1800s home.  Guests are just a short walk away from enjoying all the main attractions this beautiful city has to offer!

The Kennedy's were a well known local family who lived in the house since 1979. Several pieces of their furniture still remain in the home. 


The town of Jim Thorpe, named after the first Native American Olympic gold medal winner, has been referred to as the "Little Switzerland of the United States" because of its similar mountain scenery and quaint architecture. Interestingly, one of the Kennedy's daughters is the Youth Winter Olympics Games Coordinator and is a star athlete herself!

The place was great! Super cozy. Went first-time skiing with the fam at the nearby Jack Frost mountain, all of us made it back from the bunny hill to sit and enjoy some noodles on the couch in the cozy Jim Thorpe home
