Things we loved: Eva let us check in early. We originally asked if we could just park our car in their lot when we arrived early before check in time of 3pm, but Eva told us to come on in and she would check us in. The room was large and NOT frilly which we like. Some B&Bs just have... More

We have just left City House this morning and have had a great stay. The house itself is beautiful and Eva is a most friendly and attentive host, nothing is too much trouble. We had a problem with our hire car and Eva sorted us out with a local taxi driver called Ken to take us around and he also... More

My wife and I had a great stay here. The building is right on the waterfront and walking distance to downtown restaurants and shopping. The place is very old and absolutely beautiful. Super clean, comfortable beds, and just great. We are planning on a return in nicer weather.

I couldn't have had a more perfect baby shower at City House Bed & Breakfast. Erica and Eva were amazing and such a pleasure to work with. Everything was gorgeous! The City House more than exceeded my expectations and the guests were full of compliments. Thank you for the wonderful memories! I highly recommend using City House for any event!

We highly recommend City House B&B, comfortable and conveniently located within walking distance to downtown Harrisburg touring, churches and restaurants. While the stately house has an elegant old-warm charm, complete with hardwood floors throughout, we appreciate that the furnishings are simple and contemporary. We stayed in William. The king size bed with its king size pillows was perfect, firm without... More

We had the best experience working with City House to Plan a bridal shower. It was a perfect venue for 25 people - it feels like you are in someone's gorgeous mansion on the riverfront. Not only was it cost effective, given that you can bring your own food or catering, but there is ample space for both mingling and... More

We stayed one night in the Elizabeth room and it was an excellent choice. The room was lovely, the bed quite sumptuous, the bathroom was first class. All was very clean and stylish. The location was perfect and allowed us to walk to dinner. The parking was free and secured with a fence. The one thing that was a major... More

I had a wonderful experience staying at City House a couple of nights a week in May and June. The rooms and public spaces were very welcoming and comfortable with a noticeable attention to detail. Eva, the innkeeper, is fantastic and definitely an asset to the B&B. She prepared a great breakfast every morning and we even bonded over counting... More

The City House Bed and Breakfast is a lovely place that is located right across from the Susquehanna River. We stayed at City House in August of 2013 and our room was well appointed and quite inviting. The bed in our room (the Helen) was incredibly comfortable--in fact it was very difficult to leave it to attend to our business... More

This little gem was recommended by family in Harrisburg, as a place for us to stay over Thanksgiving, and what a find. It is a beautiful place, old world, open fireplaces, wooden floors and a lovely warm welcome by Eva, the Innkeeper. Eva will make you a lovely breakfast each morning and went to great lengths to find out what... More
