I have been fortunate enough to be spared a stay at this manor. We booked a stay here through their website, and due to inclement weather, etc, had to cancel the reservation. Attempts were made for several days, by calling the number on their site, (in the afternoon), and no one responded. No voicemail either. Attempted to e-mail, to which... More

This is a nicely located B&B in the center of Boiling Springs and across from the Children's Lake. Kitty, the energetic owner is a seasoned B&B owner: the breakfasts served promptly at 8:30 AM were delicious, my bed was comfortable, there were plenty of amenities, including a bathrobe which came in handy as my room's bathroom was around the corner,...

I had the displeasure of staying at this Bed and Breakfast. I had a reservation for two nights. I had an emergency where I could only stay one night. I explained the situation to the owner, the mother, that I would have to leave first thing in the morning due to an unexpected emergency. I was told there would be... More

Location is romantic, several good places for dinner ranging from pizza to fine dining. Due to prior plans we were not able to stay for a luscious filling breakfast which was served @ 8:30. We did have breakfast down at the corner which was fine and very good. With prior notice, this could have been different. Due call ahead prior... More

we planned a last minute getaway for an early birthday present. I booked online and also had some roses awaiting us when we got into the room. the room was clean, roomy and we had a private bathroom which was very nice. The only downside to the whole trip was a slow drain in the shower. The breakfast offered by... More

My family started a 100 mile section of the AT- The Inn was great, the breakfast was fantastic and the outdoor porch was perfect for a glass of wine. I have read other reviews that this Inn is not AT friendly. Not true...yes they do not want our dirty packs in the room staining their carpet and comforters. You just... More

Boiling Springs, PA is a charming, U.S. town near the PA Turnpike Carlisle and Harrisburg.) The rolling hills and fishing pond resemble a Norman Rockwell scene from the 1950’s. We elected a B & B over a chain motel, and were rewarded with an excellent overnight visit at Gelinas Manor. Gelinas Manor is near the center of Boiling Springs, PA;... More

My husband and I stayed 2 nights in the 3rd floor suite. It would be perfect for a small family, featuring 2 bedrooms, a nice sitting area, kitchenette and hundreds of books. Lee and Kitty were gracious hosts, and the home's decor - though slightly dated - is cozy with warm family mementos. Breakfast was unusual, well-thought out, and delicious.... More

Came to do a little hiking on the AT. snow and no boots prevented that, so we mostly waited for the ice to go away. Breakfasts were served at 8:30 and were quite creative and good. The rooms were all a bit different. For lack of a better term, we stayed in the library. Spacious and comfortable. We were super... More

I am hiking the AT and decided to stay at Gelina's Manor. When I arrived, I was not allowed to bring my backpack (my home for 6-months) inside. I was made to enter the rear of the home. Leo the owner showed me to my room and took the comforter off the bed when we entered. Two other hikers called... More
