Last weekend I had occasion to stay at the Inn at Solvang, near Huntingdon, Pennsylvania. It was wonderful. The inn is a few miles outside of Huntingdon on a sizable acreage. There were four of us and we had booked the "Ivy Suite" through the Internet. The suite is on the top most floor and has two rooms and a bathroom. It is also right under the eves.
I am a bit over 6 foot 4 and it became immediately apparent that I might have some issues with height in the shower and also with the length of the bed. Another person in our party was elderly and had problems getting up the stairs to the suite.
Realizing that this was our problem since we booked the suite ourselves, I nonetheless spoke with the innkeeper. She was incredibly gracious and offered other rooms to us. We thankfully accepted.
The house itself was built in 1937. It is furnished very nicely, with each room having a separate motif. There is a large sitting area with a fireplace and a "music" room with a piano and a harpsichord. Breakfast is served in the dining room. (see photo below)
Coffee, wine, etc is available 24/7. For those who have to be connected to the internet, there is wi-fi. Albeit it was a bit dodgy in the music room.
It is a bit out of town, but definitely a place you want to consider.
