Mellow yellow opening in time for Memorial Day

Times House in-room Continental breakfast is enjoyed at a private table for two set with china and silver
A delicious Times House en suite Continental breakfast is a great way to stay safe in Jim Thorpe and enjoy a relaxing post-Covid getaway.

Chris and I hope you all are well and can’t tell you how much it has meant to us to hear from so many of you during this pandemic and look forward to welcoming you back. We’ve missed you too.

We are pleased to announce that the Times House will be opening up next weekend in time for Memorial Day, now that Gov. Tom Wolf has issued the transition of Carbon County to a yellow phased opening.

Since we opened in 2009, the Times House has welcomed guests looking for romantic getaways or outdoor adventure to Jim Thorpe’s historic Race Street, offering our unique style of in-room breakfast service in the privacy and comfortable elegance of your room or suite. We’ve always done it this way. So we’ll be ready to help you enjoy a relaxing post-Covid getaway.

At a table set with china and silver, a delicious Continental Breakfast awaits featuring my scrumptious home-baked scones, breads, cakes, muffins, homemade granola, yogurt topped with fresh fruit, and our own Times House blend of locally roasted coffee. Set in your room on arrival, you can enjoy it at any hour you please.

As restaurants will still be in the “take-out only” phase, we would be happy to help coordinate takeaway service with your favorite Jim Thorpe eatery for you to enjoy in your room or alfresco in our hidden “Coal Yard.”

In addition to our usual high standards for cleanliness, we are proud to commit to the Pennsylvania Bed and Breakfast Inns Promise, following recommended guidelines, including disinfecting of common touch areas throughout the day, have hand sanitizer available in common areas, will block out rooms so there will be at least 24 hours between guests, seating arrangements will be socially distant, and at least through June, we’ll hold to a two-night minimum and one booking per floor to lessen interaction. We will be wearing and will require guests to wear masks in common areas. (We will be happy to supply if you need them.)

We will be relaxing our cancellation policy and ask that if you have been exposed to COVID-19 recently or have symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, or shortness of breath), please help us keep everyone
safe by rescheduling your stay.

Did you know the Victorians moved to ceramic tile because they considered it a more sanitary wall and flooring option? Now all four of our bathrooms have vintage style ceramic tile thanks to my handy hubby.
