If you are interested in a comfortable destination on the NCR trail with a high quality breakfast and a very dedicated innkeeper, this is your spot. The owner/innkeeper Pam is an accomplished cook with many years of experience in the food/catering industry. Breakfast is served at 9 AM in a relaxing atmosphere where you will not be disappointed by the... More

We stayed for 2 days..would have loved to stay longer. It's off the beaten path and away from traffic and noise and people. So it makes for a very nice getaway. Breakfast by host Pam was wonderful as was the company and conversation. While all the rooms have their ambience, we chose "The Cottage Suite" for a little more privacy.... More

We recently stayed here for the second night of a quick three day bicycle tour through Pennsylvania and Maryland. We chose the Jackson House based on location - a nice ride from Gettysburg (thru Hanover, Cordorus State Park, and Seven Valleys) and right on the York Heritage Trail. It is an amazing building, well over 100 years old but beautifully... More

What a great place to stay. Friendly, accommodating owners who prepare a hearty, tasty breakfast. Located on the trail, you can jump on the trail at any time. Great dining in the area, too. I highly recommend The Jackson House Bed and Breakfast. Can't wait to go back next year. FYI: My husband's college buddies joined us. Six couples occupied... More

Had a lovely time at the Jackson House. If you're biking or hiking the NRCR trail, you can't get closer than this. It's an old building with stone walls and ever-so-slightly sloping floors, an outside porch and deck, all centrally located in a charming quiet town. (There is a steam train that runs twice a day right next door, but... More

We found the best Eggs Benedict for our breakfast top notch. The walk on the trail was just right. The train ride was ok for the weather (heavy rain and snow that day). The rooms are comfy and in good shape for our type of trip. The innkeeper is very informative too. Come to Railroad, PA.

This B&B is wonderful. We arrived earlier than planned on a Friday, and Pam graciously let us check in ahead of time so we could get on the bike trail as soon as possible. This was a tremendous advantage. We stayed two nights and biked both days. I rode nearly 85 miles over two days. I was exhausted after each... More

This is our 3rd stay at the Jackson House. Every time has been a delight. This is an old Inn building with great character. We like the small cottage out back as it is next to the Hot Tub.The owners are friendly. helpful and flexible. The half-way location (right on the rail/trail) is perfect for exploring the 42 mile small-cinders... More

My son and I stayed in the Cottage Suite at the Jackson House Bed and Breakfast this past week. We were on a two day bike trek on the PA Heritage Rails to Trails, and also ventured into Gunpowder Falls State Park in Maryland for a two day combined total of nearly 100 miles. The Jackson House was the PERFECT... More
