Just celebrated a big birthday by staying two nights at Jackson House and bicycling two days on the rail trail that runs right by there! It was the perfect location for riding to York and back one day, then south and back another day. The jacuzzi was so relaxing after long rides, and the delicious breakfasts fueled us wonderfully.

We went to a wedding in Maryland, and I found JacksonHouse online. We rented several rooms and enjoyed our stay immensely. The history and 'character' of the site, plus the hospitality of the Owners and staff was perfect. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a unique experience.

Owner Pam was very friendly and helpful, spending a lot of time informing us of the nearby attractions. The inn is historic and charming, with hidden gardens and well-appointed rooms. There are an antiques store, a hiking trail, and an excursion train--all within a few yards of our room. (The train station is in another town a few minutes away.).... More

My wife & I have celebrated our last two wedding anniversaries (14 & 15) at the Jackson House. We have stayed in the cottage both times. A beautiful private suite, which was originally the ice house. The innkeeper, Pam Nicholson, is terrific, cooks a great breakfast, and gave us wonderful recommendations on where to eat and what to do during... More

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

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
