Top 10 Reasons to Book a Wedding In Jim Thorpe: #10 Supporting the Moms and Pops

Indeed, Jim Thorpe is a small town. But even in small towns there are very few places you can go where a chain store isn’t an “anchor” of the town or its landscape. But , Jim Thorpe is different. Every major business in our small town is truly a Mom & Pop (Subway is nationally known, but as a franchise that is individually owned, still counts!). Even our largest hotel is family owned and operated, the Inn at Jim Thorpe. Just about the ONLY operation in town that can be considered a large chain is the  Turkey Hill Gas Station. That doesn’t just apply to the tourist side of town either, because all the business on the other side of town are also individually owned including Jim Thorpe Market, a grocery store just over the bridge.


So, in our new video blog (vlog) series counting down the top 10 reasons to book a wedding in Jim Thorpe, here is our first installment and our #10 Reason to Book a Wedding in Jim Thorpe:  You’re helping to support Mom & Pops.

Vendor Spotlight: Rendon House

Vendor Spotlight: Rendon House

This month, on my Vendor Spotlight, I wanted to highlight one of the many B&B’s that we have in town for two reasons;  The first, it’s absolutely beautiful , the second is that not only is it available as a B&B but is currently on the market for sale !  Yup, you can purchase your own slice of Jim Thorpe and own this beautiful gem!

Many of the couples that come to the Ballroom to get married are from other locations in PA or the tri-state area and they are attracted to our venue and our town because of how beautiful and romantic it is (how could Victorian architecture not be romantic?).  So, naturally, many of their guests will be arriving from other destinations and are looking for some places right in town to stay.  The Rendon House is literally right in the middle of town steps away from the Mauch Chunk Ballroom and all the other historic landmarks in the area.

There are three rooms available for guests inside the home,  each with their own bathroom and named after a former occupant of the home. Rates are $95 to   $125/night depending on the season  and comes complete with a three course sit-down breakfast.  Yum!  Rendon House is also Vegan friendly.

Because it is listed for sale, there is a beautiful Virtual Tour of the B&B that you can look at at the Realtor’s site below.  For more information or to book a reservation call 570-325-5515 or visit their website

If you’re interested in possibly purchasing the B&B, please visit Keller Williams Realty Listing.

The Rendon House is located at 80 Broadway.
