Got this place only a few days in advance at a good rate. The rooms were gorgeous and clean. The house and grounds were very pretty and charming. And the hosts were very friendly in a sincere way, not the sometimes fake welcome you get in some places. We only stayed one night, but it was a nice relaxing stay. It's really a beautiful building and obviously well-cared for. Chambersburg isn't exactly Vegas on terms of activities, but if you're in the area, you really can't beat this place.
