As others have noted, City House is a wonderful B&B. The facility is lovely and spotlessly clean. Our bedroom was charming and the bed was fantastically comfortable. The common rooms have been beautifully restored. Eva is a delightful hostess. Her dinner suggestion was excellent and the breakfast she made was tasty. We would eagerly stay at City House again if...

Our daughter had her wedding there and it was a wonderful experience from our first meeting with Eva to the last Sunday breakfast. The home is lovely and well cared for. Our wedding ceremony took place outside and we could not have asked for a more beautiful day. Eva was very helpful with suggestions and everything that was agreed on... More

What a great B&B! Lovely house in a great location---right across the street from a scenic walking/running/biking trail and only a few short blocks away from bars, restaurants, and nightlife---all within walking distance. Eva was so friendly and accommodating and very welcoming. Our room was extremely clean and the bed was SOOOO comfy! The shower was out of this world----HUGE... More

We rented the common areas of the City House for my daughter's wedding shower. After some thought, I decided to rent the rooms for guests coming in from out of town for the event. That would serve the dual purpose of not having to rush into setting up the next day. We were absolutely delighted with the accommodations. My niece... More

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
