What an exciting weekend at the Jackson House in Railroad, Pennsylvania! Pam and Irene greeted us with open arms (including our three dogs!). Our room was amazing and the breakfast was fantastic!!! I love the little town itself - perfectly set on the Rail Trail. Lot's of beautiful sights and plenty of action on the trail. The steam engines running... More

We had a good time at Jackson House. The breakfast was wonderful and it was nice to socialize with other travelers. Railroad itself does not have much to offer except tranquility through a nice bike trail. Pam was very welcoming. We had cookies, drinks, and wine available all times. We chose the house because of the beautiful, elegant southern style.... More

Bottomline: a very nice stay at a BB built in 1859 as a railroad hotel. There is a really lovely garden and the building is located right next to the NCR/YCHT bike trail. Pam the hostess is gracious and cooks a great breakfast. More details: I had always wanted to bike from hometown in Baltimore to York on the rail... More

My husband and I road up the NCR trail starting in Ashland, MD on Sunday September 14, 2014 and ended here at Jackson House B&B. We stayed in the "rail trail suite" which is literally on the trail, with bike racks and everything. Pam had left us the key for the room which was quaint but perfect for us. It... More

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
