My boyfriend and I attended a wedding in Erie, PA and stayed at a HORRIBLE motel there (Avalon, avoid it at all cost). We decided to treat ourselves by staying at a bed and breakfast on our way back to northern Virginia. After sorting through reviews of various B&Bs, we settled on City House. Thank god we did! The location was excellent - right on the river (great views from the room) and walking distance to restaurants/bars. The room was beautifully appointed with a very comfortable bed and furnishings. The bathroom was a gorgeous retro style with a shower large enough to accommodate 5 or 6 people! The staff were very courteous and helpful in suggesting local restaurants. All in all, a fabulous little gem in Harrisburg. Don't miss it!
