I mistakenly thought I booked a room at the B&B for Friday night, when I actually booked it for Saturday night. The poor innkeepers had just gotten home from a trip when my son and I showed up at their establishment just minutes after they had gotten home. They weren't even open that day. However, they graciously agreed to let... More

My husband and I had a lovely time here this weekend. The place has a ton of history and charm and is very obviously cherished by its owners! Our room (Lafayette) was much bigger than I had even expected! The bathroom was also quite large. And it was spotless. Ed and Barb are very welcoming and the breakfast was delicious... More

My fiance and I stayed at the Colonial Crossroads B&B for a second consecutive year based on the personalized attention we received, impressive attention to detail and unique nature of the property. My order or lift tickets, chocolate-covered strawberries and flowers was handled appropriately and with personal care and all policies were followed, from the check-in experience to the departure....

We stayed here during the Governor's inauguration. It was just enough away from the fuss in Harrisburg to be quiet and allow us to get out of town, but close enough to quickly and easily get to events in the capitol. The B&B was very nice, warm, cozy, comfy and firm bed, nice gas fireplace in room, excellent breakfast served... More

My boyfriend took me here for a birthday getaway. We stayed two nights but would have enjoyed staying even longer. We were in PA to visit Christmas in Hershey and colonial crossroads was about 20 mins from Hershey and 45 mins from Lancaster, which we also visited. At check in we were greeted first by flash, the family dog who... More

Me and my wife went to Harrisburg to visit our daughter in College. Used to stay in a particular hotel chain (which I find consistent and predictable) we accepted her suggestion from to stay at the Historic Crossroads B&B, owned by Ed and Barb Gordon. It was our 4th experience in a B&B and we have enjoyed it greatly. More... More

My husband and I spent two very relaxing nights at Colonial Crossroads. We were welcomed warmly by Barbara who gave us helpful advice about the area, started our days with delicious breakfasts, and told us the fascinating history of the B&B. Our room was truly a little sanctuary; it had all the space we needed, luxurious amenities, and a most... More

We had such a wonderful experience there. The hostess was a great and very knowledgeable of the history of the place. The rooms and house are charming, it gave us a cozy feeling. We didn't want to leave. We will most definitely be back! Oh, and lets not forget about Flash the friendly Bed and Breakfast dog, such a warm,... More

We booked for 7 nights but stayed for eight instead! It was a very good holiday for us: beautiful home, gracious hosts, good and healthy breakfast daily, near to our child who is studying in Messiah College which is about 20 minutes walk away, and quiet neighborhood. Barbara and Edward are as nice as all the reviewers said they are.... More

We have stayed at numerous B&B's, but this one is truly wonderful. The Gordon's have done a wonderful job in refurbishing this antique structure, adding the right amount of modern amenities without sacrificing the home's historical charm. We have stayed there on three separate trips to the area while visiting our daughter and hope to stay there again soon!
