The Harry Packer Mansion Inn
The Harry Packer Mansion Inn is located in the Victorian village of Jim Thorpe, PA. Used as the model for the Haunted Mansion at Disney, the interior is anything but spooky! It is open for lodging, tours, drinks and of course the murder mystery!
Perched atop Packer Hill, just steps from historic downtown, the Harry Packer Mansion sits like a sentinel overlooking the village. The mansion's impressive facade could have been taken from a Gothic novel, so much so that the building's design caught the eye of Disney Imagineers and it became the inspiration for Walt Disney World's "Haunted Mansion!" The interior, however, is anything but spooky. Fifteen foot ceilings, marble fireplaces and gilded mirrors reflect the elegance of the Victorian Age. The mansion is open for self-guided tours on Saturdays from 1-4pm and Sundays from 1-3pm. After your tour, stop by Libations Lounge for a drink and relax on the veranda overlooking historic Jim Thorpe.
