The Hillard House is located in one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in my home town of Wilkes-Barre, PA -- the part that has retained its beauty over the years, and the part that makes me proud to say that I grew up in W-B! As my elderly parents have gotten older, it has become more difficult for them to accommodate my husband and me when we go to visit...I was delighted to learn about the existence of Hillard House, and even more delighted with the whole experience of staying there! Cecilia and Gordon make a wonderful team of hosts. I believe Gordon has never met a stranger, and he is a fabulous waiter and so much fun to talk to! Cecilia's breakfasts were a real treat -- and she was very kind to share her recipe for the most delicious pear brulee crepe I have ever tasted. She was also very kind to allow a friend of mine to deliver my favorite bottle of wine to our room as a Welcome Home surprise. We were tickled with the old-fashioned elevator that carried our belongings up to our room on the 3rd floor. Our room was cozy and well appointed and generously stocked! The soon-to-be 150-year-old-house is historic and lovely -- of course, there are some visible signs of its age, but these only add to its charm! I look forward to going home again to Hillard House, hopefully before too long!
