We recently stayed at the Orris House for two nights and were delighted with the house, the yard and the hospitality. Kevin, the innkeeper asked ahead of time what we liked for breakfast and what we liked to drink. When we arrived our favourite wines and beer and sodas were in the fridge waiting for us. He also provided water... More

We recently completed a three night stay at the Orris House Inn. There were six adults and one child in our group. We had the entire Inn to ourselves. I cannot say enough about the excellent service we received from Inn Keeper Kevin before, during and after our stay! First of all the Inn has been lovingly restored to reflect... More

The Orris House Inn along with it's owner, Kevin, gave my husband and I just what we needed; restorative time. Our room was well appointed; with a comfy feeling, nice amenities and space to relax. The garden was beautiful and tranquil. Birds, bunnies, chipmunks and butterflies added to the fountains and stunning flowers. We spent an afternoon soaking in the... More

I can't say enough about Kevin's hospitality. The inn is just gorgeous and a real step back in time, but breakfast by Kevin with fresh berries, scones, and anything else your heart desired was just excuisite. I didn't want to leave! Dining with the chipmunks and feathered friends was extremely special. Not only that, but Kevin let me park my... More

We stayed at Orris House for our daughter's graduation in nearby Dickinson College. The inn is a converted and authentic Victorian home with beautiful molding and woodwork, and it is set in a lovely garden. The beds were very comfortable and the inn keeper, Kevin, was a fantastic host. Each bedroom had a small fridge where Kevin kept complimentary beverages.... More

The idea to stay at a Bed and Breakfast so my daughter and I could have some real "one on one" time was perfectly realized at the lovely Orris House in the middle of Mechanicsburg, PA. A beautiful Victorian home with high ceilings and gorgeous windows, perfectly decorated and providing both comfort and privacy, it has plenty of spots to... More

My sisters and I have been traveling to B&Bs for some time now - and we found the perfect one in Camp Hill, PA - Orris House Inn is by far the best B&B we have ever been to - and we will continue to go back only to this place. Kevin, who runs the place, is the best!!! He... More

My fiancée and I wanted a charming, historic and intimate site for our small family wedding in early January. From my first contact with the innkeeper, Kevin through the goodbye the day after the ceremony, we had a wonderful experience and a very memorable ceremony. The inn is decorated beautifully and it was extra-special with the holiday decorations, very tastefully... More

We grew-up in Mechanicsburg and always wanted to see inside the elegant Victorian mansion on Main Street that is now the Orris House. So, we were very excited to stay there on our last visit back to town, and we were not disappointed. The house is incredible, and has been carefully restored to its original turn-of-the-century splendor while still incorporating... More

This place is absolutely stunning! I brought my girlfriend here for our first anniversary! The accommodations were splendid! Kevin is a wonderful host and cook! The house is spotless and rustic in a wonderfully elegant setting! I can't wait to come here again! This was my first b&b in PA. And I must say, one of the nicest places I've... More
