Where to Stay for Your Acanthus Workshop Class – PDF Download




Places to stay

I recommend the Hampton Inn of Lehighton. They offer our students a discounted rate of $85.00 for weekday stays. You’ll need to call them directly at (610) 377-3400 and tell them you’re with the Acanthus Workshop.

Alternatively, the Country Inn & Suites in Lehighton, PA (less than half a mile from the Hampton Inn). Call them at (610)379-5066 to make a reservation and tell them you are with the Acanthus Workshop to receive the corporate rate of $99.00 per night.

Both hotels are 8 miles south of the shop and are conveniently located just off the Mahoning Valley exit of I-476 (the northeast extension of the PA turnpike). The rooms are a reasonable size and very clean. They provide breakfast (and lunch each day is part of your class), and the hotels are only a few miles from the town of Jim Thorpe, where you’ll find shops and restaurants worth exploring.


Directions from the Hampton Inn and Country Inn & Suites: Turn right out of the parking lot and travel to the light at Harrity Rd. turn left. Take Harrity Rd. for .6 miles and turn right onto Fairyland Rd. In 400 feet, turn left onto Overlook Dr. In 1 mile, turn right onto Indian Hill Rd. In .7 miles Indian Hill Rd. becomes Maury Rd (at the stop sign) – continue straight onto Maury Rd. for 2.5 more miles. Maury Rd. ends at Rt. 903; turn right onto Rt. 903 North. In 1.1 miles turn left onto Behrens Rd. and, in another 1.1 miles turn right onto Indian Trail Rd. Stay on Indian Trail Rd. by bearing slightly to the right for .3 miles and #62 in on the right (the shop is in the back of the house – green house with large front porch).

Additionally, there are numerous bed and breakfasts in the Jim Thorpe area as well as entire homes for rent in (and near) our community of Bear Creek Lake Civic Association. Homes and B&Bs can be located and booked through a variety of websites like – airbnb.com and bedandbreakfast.com and searching the Jim Thorpe area.
