I drive to PA on family business about every two months. Usually stay at hotel. However this trip I could not find any ones I prefer for the stay I needed.
Happened upon City House Bed & Breakfast via a Google search followed by TripAdvisor due diligence.
So glad I did.
City House is simply among the best B&Bs I have stayed at. From the building architecture and historical period restorations -- both inside and out, and the tastefully updated room appointments, to the excellent and varied breakfast offerings, to the convenient location, I was impressed. Cost about the same as the hotels I usually stay at.
This review would not be complete without a shout-out to the City House Innkeeper -- Sarah. She rounds out a first class B&B stay.
I will be staying there on my return trips to Harrisburg.
