We highly recommend City House as a home away from home while exploring Harrisburg. The character and beauty of this historic residence on the Susquehanna River have been thoughtfully preserved with the addition of modern amenities. We parked our car when we arrived and were able to walk to all our Midtown destinations. Our room was sparkling clean and the house and gardens were simply a haven.

This was my third stay at this charmingly classic B&B. Charming, cozy , super clean bedrooms with fireplaces and top of the line bedding and towels upstairs. Expansive rooms downstairs and a sun porch give lots of options for socializing. Outside area features a fire pit and lots of seating options. A wonderful hot breakfast is served each morning and the room refrigerator is stocked with continental type breakfast items. Located directly across from the Susquehanna River we enjoy the beautiful river walk and there are many fine restaurants nearby. The proprietor, Erica, goes the extra mile in every way for her guests.

What a lovely little find during the Covid pandemic. A beautiful, quaint, 5 room house. We saw no one. Because of the situation we were not able to indulge in the traditional B&B gourmet breakfast. We were fully stocked in our rooms for continental style, which was fine. 4 star only because we had to take a cold shower one morning. The proprietor’s husband came quickly to our rescue but we had an engagement to get to. Could not wait. Try this place out! Right across the street from the Susquehanna River which makes for gorgeous walks! Very convenient to highways, restaurants, bars, shops.

We have stayed here several times and it is always a wonderful stay. While we typically enjoy the warm hospitality and delicious full breakfast, even during Covid times, we fully enjoyed our stocked mini fridge and home made assortment of breakfast items in our room. They are doing a marvelous job of keeping their guests healthy and happy. I can't recommend this B&B enough. Charming in every respect

The house is very well kept and the rooms are very cozy and clean..and yet have a very classic feel. It sets at a great location overlooking the river and in close walking distance to all the city centers. If your looking to check out the city of Harrisburg PA for the day, I highly recommend booking your room at the City House.
