I was very impressed with the variety of high quality local foods for breakfast. Service and friendliness of the innkeepers was wonderful. Nice spacious rooms. Very clean. Great location to downtown. No private bathrooms but that was okay. I would recommend this to anyone especially if you are into great local foods.

We've been going away for a day or 2 for years for our Anniversary/Christmas. Our Anniversary was 3 days before Christmas and our daughter was getting married 3 days after Christmas. We weren't going to go away this year, but at the last minute, I remembered traveling through Franklin, PA in the summer. I looked up B&B's there and gave... More

A group of friends from college days spent a weekend here and were thrilled with the experience. The proprietors, Ann and Marty, could not have been more welcoming and warm hosts. Their home has a strong sense of history, filled with interesting art work and lovely details. The living spaces had extensive libraries, and the rip-roaring fireplace made us never... More

My husband and I stayed here in July with my parents and two kids, ages 10 and 12, and very much enjoyed our evening. Ann was so very accommodating: willing to take us for only one night, setting up an air mattress for the kids and generally providing a friendly and comfortable atmosphere. The house is clean, the front porch... More

Our family of four stayed at the Witherup House and really enjoyed our stay. The rooms were well appointed, the beds comfortable, and the breakfast delicious! The front bedroom had a lovely second floor porch for enjoying the cool breeze. It is only two blocks from the park by the river and very close to a bustling downtown with restaurants,... More

My son and I traveled to Franklin, PA to attend my father's funeral, and after a 9 hour drive, arrived exhausted and elated to land. Marty hollered to us from the front door to let us know we'd found Witherup House, and directed us to park in back, where he welcomed us and helped carry our bags in. Aside from... More

We had a small group visiting Franklin to kayak the Allegheny & do some biking. 3rd year now. But our first year at the B&B. By far the best lodging. We rented the whole house for our group & really enjoyed just chilling out & relaxing (in between our adventures). Marty & Ann were splendid. Very helpful to accomodate extra... More

The Witherup House is a beauty; each room unique and artfully decorated. Marty & Ann were awesome hosts--so friendly, accommodating, and super thoughtful. I stayed here the first night of a cross country road trip, and I'm so glad I did. I left feeling so refreshed and nourished (breakfast was delicious and included fresh veggies from the garden!). If I... More
