We found this inn to be a good value, looking forward to going back. Main building is a very interesting well-maintained beautiful old mansion. Really fun to explore the building: paintings and tapestries, the amazing wine cellar, tiny English bar, an accessible widows-walk, lots of dining nooks in old attached buildings. Pool wasn’t open yet but looked nice. Amazing flower garden and meticulous lawns with deer grazing, We stayed in the third floor of the main building. Ours was a cozy but large room, huge bathroom with Jacuzzi. Breakfast was excellent. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Only complaint is that the third-floor rooms needs at least one window that opens, for ventilation and safety.

Dinner would be a 5 - Room/Hotel would be a 3 - so score is a 4! We spent one night at this Hotel - we got a package that included the 5 course dinner - and we thought the food was wonderful - as was the service! Dinner was amazing. All the servers in the restaurant (dinner and breakfast) were wonderful/helpful and friendly. Check in and out was cursory - not much of a greeting etc... fine but no information when we checked in about wi-fi or breakfast until we asked. The staff was clearly distracted by wedding guests. The hotel and grounds are lovely. Our room was fine - things are getting a bit dated - the strings to work the blinds are hard to work (because they've been broken so many times I think). Our room was in the house closes to the road (The Birnie House - try not to stay there if road noise bothers you) - lots of road noise (until around 10 PM). One thing I would suggest to future guests - check to see if an "event" is going on (there was a wedding the evening we were there) - the events seem to take away from the staff's ability to focus on other than wedding guests - check in was cursory at best. Wedding guests were swarming the mansion area... we were told by the woman standing by the entrance to park across the street (which is overflow parking for events I think) - we did not - just checked in and then parked by our building. The houses are a bit of a walk from the mansion (where dinner and breakfast are served). Just fyi. Breakfast was "OK" - limited choices - I had the "country breakfast" - 2 scrambled eggs, a few pieces of potato, 2 slices of bacon & an english muffin. My husband had the granola and fruit - mostly fruit and nuts. The wedding group was in another room (and you could certainly hear them talking/baby crying) and clearly had more staff focused on them. Overall we had a nice time - wish I had known about the Birnie House being so close to the road - would never have selected it!

Donna and I spent the night at the B&B in the Smith House. We had dinner at their restaurant called the Smokehouse for Valentine's Day. The food was beyond compare. Our server Kelsey was awesome and I was very impressed with her knowledge of the menu. After dinner she asked if we wanted an after dinner drink. I asked for Ruby Port. After she came back to the table she informed me they didn't have it; but, she offered a Sherry from Spain. I enjoyed the drink immensely. It was a nice way to finish off the evening of a very worthwhile dining experience. Earlier in the the day, while waiting for our room, we enjoyed the cozy pub. Met some nice people there. Donna had a coke. I had two Brandy Alexander on the rocks. The bartender was from Northern Ireland. He fired up the fireplace and provided great service. The suite we stayed in was called the Chamberlain. It had a sitting room with a couch, antique table and a coffee maker that led to the bathroom then to the bedroom. We signed up for the Valentine's Day Package. The sitting room had a box of chocolates and a bottle of champagne on ice. The staff offered turn down service which was nice. They gave us fresh towels, removed the trash and left a white rose with a chocolate on the pillows. The rooms were very nice and clean. The bathroom had a glass enclosed shower and jacuzzi tub big enough for two people. The bedroom had two closets, a dresser, a flat screen tv, queen sized four post canopy bed and a wood burning fireplace. The waiting room and bedroom had floorboards covered with large rugs. Very old world. It was like stepping back in time. You could feel a draft through the windowsills and the door of the bathroom that led out to the deck. There were tables and chairs outside. It was too cold to enjoy the deck since it is February. Almost forgot to mention, the sitting room had a thermostat to regulate the temperature in the room. The bedroom had a portable heater in the closet. It was very useful during the night. We had a great visit there. The staff was very professional, attentive and courteous. I rewrote my review because I wanted to address the negative reviews I read about this place. I've worked in the travel industry for close to 20 years. This was our first time here and I was very very impressed by the staff and the service they provided. The day we arrived, they were finishing their third wedding plus checking in guests. Please do not allow these negative comments by others to dismiss this place. You won't be disappointed.

My family stayed one night to celebrate a birthday and anniversary. We got a package each that included a room, dinner and breakfast. At check-in is where we experienced the beginning of a huge disappointment. The receptionist was finishing with another couple spending a huge amount of time explaining all the details of their dinner, coffee and muffins in the morning and the full breakfast. Then came my time to begin the check in, and I got nothing! I asked about the things she just explained to the couple, she seemed annoyed. I also had to ask if I got a key. She at first questioned me and then realized she didn’t give it to me. No apology... it was as if she wanted me gone! Weird. Our room was nice, on the top floor. I was in a boot for my ankle and was told someone would assists us with our bags... no one was around. My cousin told me he had an email of a welcome letter that told him all about check in, WiFi password... after I had gone back down to front desk, because that was another piece of information she did not give... WiFi information! I was never informed about an email that would explain check in! A group came in the mansion to enjoy one of the sitting rooms, I heard one of them say, can I take my mask off. The employee said yes, I said “I don’t think so”. I can’t believe it! These are public rooms and you’re to wear your mask at all times! We enjoyed the gardens and freshen up for dinner. We came down at 6:15 to enjoy a drink in the pub but was greeted by an employee to take us to dinner. I was not happy and said our reservations were for 7. She scolded me and said it would be best to eat now, since they had to close at 10, because of the new COVID restrictions. Needless to say we went to the restaurant at 7. Our meal was just awful. The hors d’oeuvres were cold, appetizer was a cold, chewy piece of cheese that literally squeaked against your teeth. Our main course was room temperature... our waiter was not friendly one bit. At the end of the meal we get our bill. We told the waiter that dinner is included and waiter said he was aware of that but to see what dinner cost for tip purposes. That was really uncomfortable, as if we were not going to tip! The next morning we went for coffee at 8:15, they had to pour it, we had to ask for creamer and sugar. They put the creamer in our cups and handed us a packet of sugar. We had to ask for a spoon and napkin! They were out of muffins! How is that possible? Breakfast was ok, again food served at room temperature. I asked for a bagel and so did my cousin. Waitress asks what kind we would like, we asked what kind do you have. Then she says I think we only have plain. Then my sister asked for jelly, waitress said she thought they were out but would check. Luckily they had jelly! The employees here are just clueless and rude. Our experience was so odd! I have stayed here several times and never have I had such unacceptable service! They use to have high tea with the package, but I guess with COVID, they can’t do that. There use to be a more selection for breakfast. It was very limited. We spent close to $500 for one night, and treated as if we were nothing. There was no hospitality, no friendly engagement to our family... we felt like every time something odd happened... it was a joke or on hidden camera. It was so frequent of the “don’t care” attitude. I get COVID can limit things, but this is a private business and we our giving time and money, trying to support local businesses, so they should be kinder. No one ever approached us or went out of their way to make our experience memorable. Also, I’m on their email and I get an email a day before our arrival that stated starting the day we arrived they’re offering 30% off packages, but not off previous purchases. What a joke. I will not be returning. We wanted a memorable evening, we got that but it was all about the poor service. Be aware you will not be treated with any class and if you want or need anything you’ll have to ask. I

I must admit, that in reading your review, I agree that the best term to use is "odd". There are so many items you describe that are nothing close to the level of service we strive to provide all of our guests on a daily basis. I wish I had the opportunity to speak with you about your concerns while you were visiting us so we could remedy them for you. One point I do want to make very clear, is that we take the Covid protocols extremely seriously, and strictly enforce the use of masks throughout our property. I would appreciate the opportunity to speak with you in more detail at your convenience. Would you mind contacting me directly to discuss your experience further?

We stayed in the Winfield Scott room. Beautiful. No critical refrigerator, as I ordered and confirmed the day before. No lightbulb in the central light fixture. The lock to the private balcony on the first floor was broken. Security issue. No hot water. My husband had to shave with cold water. The toilet handle was broken; had to be fixed. The television was very difficult to operate but there were no instructions in the room. The front desk just laughed and said they had many such calls. Breakfast for two of three days was completely luke warm, from eggs to coffee. The chef is completely different from Smokehouse restaurant dinner chef. If you'd like a lunch delivered to your room, it would cost $35 + a $10 delivery fee. This Inn seems to set itself up as a luxury hotel. It needs serious adult management. We were very disappointed. The Inn at White Oak in Gettysburg is much better and less money. We did have dinner Friday night at the Smokehouse Restaurant. Dinner was nice, but way too much food.
