I've stayed in a lot of B&B's but never one like this! 140 years of increadible history, Overlook Mansion wraps it's warm cozy arms around you as soon as you step onto the beauitful front porch. The warm dark woods and antique tapestries immediately lull you into a wonderful relaxed state. Enter any of the guest rooms and it's like... More

I can't say enough about the Overlook Mansion! This was my first experience at a B&B, and everything went above and beyond my expectations. The Mansion is so gorgeous! From the architecture, to the furniture, to the absolutely convienent location, everything was perfect. It is very clean and the rooms are so comfortable, they feel like home away from home.... More

This was my second time going to the Overlook Mansion, but my first time spending the night. Had a great time with my friends, ate some awesome food and learned a lot about it's past. And it's close to downtown Reading and some very cute shops. Would definitely go again for another fantastic event!

This B&B is beyond fantastic. i have stayed at a few, and this would be my favorite for many reasons. 1. History. Fantastic History of the place given by owners and the beauty and love that was put into restoring this mansion, tells you how much the place is cherished. 2. Events. The owners arrange a variety of different events.... More

Lady Luck smiled down on us when we were booked into a smoking room with no chance of a late arrival change...How I found this beautiful Victorian mansion, I'll never know except by luck and good karma. The phone was answered by the caretaker who was friendly and courteous. Remember this was later in the day...a Friday and I'm sure... More

I've lived in Reading almost all my life and never knew this place existed! This was a great experience and I would recommend it to anybody. The owners/hosts were more than pleasant. Daphne shared stories and experiences with us that I will take with me and remember as long as my mind is in tact! The food was awesome, when... More

We loved this place, both because it was lovely and because the inkeepers were very hospitable and friendly. The house is a classic victorian pile with lovely porches both upstairs and downstairs. The parlors are fantastic dark wood and seem to go on for miles. The inn keepers, especially Daphne went out of their way to make us feel at... More

We stayed here 1 night, and the home is definitely a grand victorian in architecture. It is nicely appointed with period/traditional decorating. The co-owners (Daphne / Paul) try to be very accommodating with any needs. The home is non smoking. We stayed in the Victorian Room. This one room is HUGE. The bed is a foot off the floor and...
