What is there to say that hasn't already been said? I loved my stay at City House and would recommend it to anyone traveling to Harrisburg. I felt welcomed, at ease, and taken care of and couldn't ask for anything more in a B&B. Thank you so much to Eva for your friendliness and hospitality! Anyone would be lucky to... More

Beautiful old brick home in the heart of historic district; updated with clean, modern features while maintaining historic charm. I stayed in the Helen room with a view of the river. The room had plenty of space, a beautiful view through french windows, comfortable king bed, and a huge shower. Breakfast was delicious: a hot egg dish each morning plus... More

City House is a beautiful gem of a house right on the edge of downtown Harrisburg and along the Susquehanna River with it's park and river walk. It was so nice to drive into the private parking area at the back of the house, and know we had walking access to the Capital, restaurants and historic architecture of the city.... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at the City House B&B several weeks ago - and were simply overwhelmed by the building's beauty, charm and all of her amenities, that overlook the beautiful Susquehanna River. The owners and the inn keeper are extremely personable, attentive and catered to all of our needs. Our breakfast in the morning was delicious, inclusive of... More

I was treated to a one nights stay at this beautiful B&B. The room was spacious, clean, and nicely decorated. The inn keeper is great and the view from the Helen room is amazing. Breakfast the next morning was baked oatmeal, yogurt, fresh fruit, bagels, muffins among other things. I can't wait to return

I drive to PA on family business about every two months. Usually stay at hotel. However this trip I could not find any ones I prefer for the stay I needed. Happened upon City House Bed & Breakfast via a Google search followed by TripAdvisor due diligence. So glad I did. City House is simply among the best B&Bs I... More

I can't think of one negative thing to say about City House. The location is perfect and it is the cleanest most immaculately maintained B&B I've ever visited. Three cheers for Sara, the innkeeper, for the amazing job she does. City House is located directly across the street from the wonderful, landscaped river walk that runs for several miles along...

My husband and I stayed here for two nights while attending a wedding in the area. This little B&B beats all the local hotels, in my opinion in cleanliness, food, and comfort. Stay here if you can to get away from the crowds and be sure not to miss breakfast, where all guests are seated together at a large wooden... More

I loved this tiny, four-room B&B. its location in the historic district, by the river, is great. I slept great despite the busy street. The inn is extremely comfortable, breakfast was great, it's a beautiful house in a great location. Absolutely nothing to complain about.
