Stayed 4th of July weekend. The place was obviously booked solid but the house didn't seem crowded at all. The wrap-around porch was a great place to relax and watch the birds. There is some street noise from cars passing by, but it wasn't too bad except for the occasional loud-mufflered motorcycles or big trucks. There was also some train... More

My husband and 2 college buddies met, with wives too, and enjoyed a nice visit. The B&B is well kept and clean. We enjoyed wonderful breakfast, even preparing special foods for those in need. The porch was a delightful place to hang out.

Mary Ann is a wonderful hostess with a beautiful B&B very close to the GAP. Good location for walking to town as well. The rooms are beautifully appointed with all the amenities, including hair dryer. She heated the house in advance of our arrival, so it was very cosy when we arrived. There is a comfortable living room for relaxing.... More

Nice B and B...comfortable with lovely breakfast of blueberry French toast, sausage and fruit. Trains are a bit noisy...but thats common along the trail. No ac but the house was plenty cool with windows open to sleep.

We stayed here last weekend while biking the GAP. You couldn't find a better location as it is literally the second building off the trail in Rockwood. It's beautifully furnished and very clean. There's a wonderful covered porch for sitting and a covered space was provided to store the bikes. MaryAnn, the innkeeper, prepared an amazing breakfast that provided more... More

Fed stale cereal. Rooms comfortable and clean enough. If you bring your own food it's ok. Owner isn't on property. Cash only, not much to eat in town either. No AC, Owner hovered at breakfast, as if she couldn't wait to get rid of us. Would never stay here again.

The Gingerbread House in Rockwood, PA is a bicycle friendly Bed and Breakfast. We were a group of nine biking the Great Allegheny Passage trail with reservations for this B & B. A rain storm turned us into one dirty group of bikers. The owner provided a hose to wash off our bikes and just asked we take our shoes... More

We are two Anglo-US couples who decided to cycle (some of) the GAP in October 2014. Marianne at the Gingerbread House was wonderful. The B and B is welcoming, well-equipped, with a secure under-the-porch bike store, and felt like a home from home. Who cares if she only takes cash and if the delicious breakfasts offer no choice? This was... More

Stayed one night with my wife using this B & B as our home base biking in both directions on the VERY nearby bike trail. Owner does not live on site but does come to greet you upon arrival. She also provided a delicious hot breakfast in the morning. Small issues that kept this property from a 4-5 overall rating.... More
