  • Introduction

    The Roth House is located at the base of the Pocono Mountains in Palmerton, PA, in the small village of Little Gap, 25 miles north of Allentown. This area was originally inhabited by people of Pennsylvania German decent, which is still evident in the community today. We are only One Mile from the Blue Mountain Ski Area, which boosts one of the steepest slopes in Pennsylvania, the Pocono Raceway with international car racing, the Pocono Downs Race Track (horse racing), white water rafting, within one mile of the Appalachian Trail (hiking) and the town of Jim Thorpe (the Little Switzerland of America). Or you can visit an authentic old Pennsylvania Covered Bridge only a few feet from our home which is still in use today. We are also adjacent to one of Pennsylvania's best Trout fishing streams.

    With its wonderful craftsmanship and beautiful decor, the inn reflects the charm of a small picturesque hotel.

    This 19th century home features theme rooms throughout the house, a beautiful front porch, and a creek located on the property for our guests' enjoyment.
