My sisters and I sent to Orris House for the first time - we were wowed to say the least! Kevin is very low key and made us feel so welcome. There was wine and cheese at night - and an absolutely fabulous breakfast each morning. We told him we liked coffee and each morning at 6:30 there was coffee... More

Our second stay at ORRIS HOUSE B&B. The house is charming and the garden is beautiful and filled with birds. The breakfast was well prepared and fresh. Kevin, the inn keeper is very friendly and hospitable .A very relaxing place to stay when visiting Dickinson College for parents weekend.

We spent a weekend at the Orris House Inn while in town for a wedding, and Kevin was a wonderful host. Not only was the house beautiful and charming, but we received breakfast to order and had a wonderful guest experience. It was my first stay at a B & B, and my trip here would make me want to...

My siblings and I came to Pennsylvania for my sister's birthday. We stayed at the Orris House Inn. It is a grand place to stay, very Victorian, but with the modern conveniences. The ambience is wonderful and conducive to conversation. The Innkeeper, Kevin Jackson, keeps the inn clean, tidy, and well stocked. He made some of the best breakfasts I... More

Innkeeper Kevin is the perfect host. He took our beverage requests by email before we arrived, cooked breakfast to order, helped my husband make an ice pack for his bicycle wreck bruises, and sent us home with a care package of scones and bottled water! the house is sumptuous, with more common rooms than I have ever seen at a...

We stayed at the Orris House July4-7. First of all, if you are looking for an inexpensive room to sleep, then go to one of the local hotels in the area. However, if you are willing to pay a little more and looking for an "experience" then you need to stay here. The house is like walking back into time.... More

Orris House Inn is one of those rare places where you wish you could stay longer. The house is exquisite but more than that you are given such a welcome that it feels like your home. The host, Kevin, dedicates himself to making sure that you have the best stay possible. Breakfast was delicious, bought and made to your bespoke... More

Some B&Bs charge a lot, but you just get a room, albeit a nice one, and breakfast. But at the Orris House Inn, you are staying in a grand, stately mansion with every room beautifully decorated and appointed. There are English style gardens out back, and a lovely patio with table from which to sit and enjoy them. The host,... More

I stayed 2 nights at the Orris House Inn in June 2013. The Orris House is a grand home, and the owner graciously took the time to share information on its history. The rooms are huge, with high ceilings, an abundance of gorgeous woodwork, and plenty of light from many windows. Each is immaculate and beautifully decorated. I stayed in... More
