My husband and I were travelling through PA from VA to a Cape Cod vacation. We decided on the first night out to drive until we got tired and took a chance waiting til late to find a place to stay the night. That took us to Chambersburg, PA. We found Lillie's Garden by searching on line (in the car) for Chambersburg B & B's. What a nice stroke of good luck. The owner, Lillie, was ready for us as we drove in off the interstate and so welcoming. She suggested a place for a late dinner and placed our luggage upstairs in the lovely room we found upon our return (queen bed and full bath). Her home is very nice with flowers all around and located in a most appealing residential neighborhood near the small women's college. Lillie had a full breakfast ready early the next morning with nice hot coffee, eggs cooked to order, delicious sausage and what must be the world's best muffins! We took two of those to go.
We will definitely recommend and remember to plan another stay there in the future!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Explore Chambersburg from the comfort of a charming bed and breakfast located less than a mile from the historic downtown and only a country road or two from pastoral farmland. Conveniently located across from the Wilson College campus, Lillie’s Garden Bed & Breakfast is only a short drive from the Appalachian Trail, the Michaux Forest, golf courses, ski slopes, Civil War sites, quaint shopping and beautiful farmland. Meander along well-worn sidewalks through picturesque Victorian neighborhoods and find yourself only steps away from where Confederates burned the northernmost town at the height of the Civil War. Discover rolling country roads that lead you to hiking trails, roadside fruit stands and beautiful vistas reflecting the very best of South Central Pennsylvania. Go back to a slower place in time. Spend a weekend and gather memories that will last a lifetime. Lillie's is close to Shippensburg and Gettysburg and conveniently accessible to Exit 17 on Interstate 81. ... more less
