“Wonderful old home with lots of charm and very spacious rooms.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

Wendy is a most gracious and charming Inkeeper. Her cooking skills are delectable and varied in her approach to setting a wonderful table for her guests. We were there alone and were very fortunate to get her undivided attention. She was very knowledgeable about the area and pointed us to a super Antique Warehouse where we made some purchases that were very reasonably priced and in great condition. Marietta has a lot of history and charm. The town has a bright future as it continues to invest in building and restoring it's appeal to visitors looking for that old world charm.

Room Tip: Pick any of the rooms...they are all delightful.

The Ascot House Bed and Breakfast in Marietta, PA. was a wonderful first time experience for me. From the moment we entered the historic home until our departure, my girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Wendy, the hostess and proprietor, was very personable and made us feel very comfortable. We stayed in the "Surrey". The bedroom and extra large bathroom, with hot tub, shower, and two sinks was very well maintained and stocked with plently of towels. The Ascot House and grounds are also very well maintained and beautiful. In the morning we were seated in the nicely furnished dining room and treated to a great breakfast with friendly and warm service. The food was well prepared and delicious. The only negative being that we only stayed one night for our 4 hour drive, but that was my fault. We'll be seeing the Ascot and Wendy again. Wendy, thank you again for everything.

I needed to add my two cents to my wife's review (liglitz). It sometimes is hard to believe everything you read on here. The reason being, people tend to over embellish (the good and the bad) about their times at Hotels or Restaurants. However, this gorgeous house is a place we will be going back to (we already booked again for December). Wendy is a wonderful, welcoming and caring hostess. The house is fully stocked with food and the rooms have been updated and modernized (the house was built in 1801). Beautiful backyard where we were able to let our noodnick (our dog Cali) run around and the location is perfect. Near a wonderful pub (McClearys) and within a five minute walk of the Susquehanna river. Its away from the bustle of Lancaster, yet close enough for an easy drive. Im still thinking about our weekend and going back. As an additional bonus, we made great friends with another couple (shoutout to Linda and Howard if youre reading this). Just a WOW weekend.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms are great. We saw them all.

We signed in as strangers and left the B & B as old friends. Wendy Codd is the epitome of warmth. Our stay there was like staying with a life long friend and we make friends which will last a lifetime. The Inn was fully booked <not a surprise> and each guest added to the ambiance, we even had an impromptu party on saturday night which consisted of ordering in from the local pizzeria <which was quite good> and all of us sharing our snacks and wine. If there could be a perfect weekend getaway, this was it! The house itself is amazing, warm, welcoming, clean and carefully planned and decorated. To Wendy, Faith: nothing is impossible when you truly believe. Helen & David

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautiful!

My husband and I had a lovely getaway weekend in Lancaster, Co and loved staying at the Ascot House. Wendy was warm, helpful and accommodating in every way. A bottle of wine greeted us in the room and the fireplace in the bedroom was perfect for escaping the cold, Autumn day. The house is beautiful and historic, expertly designed and maintained. We plan on going back again.

This historic home is most impressively appointed with authentic furniture of the time period and provides a warm feeling the moment you enter. This is largely due to the heartfelt and warm welcome provided by the proprieter, Wendy.
What ever you need to know about the area she will do her utmost to accomodate you.
Lovely,large bedrooms with oversized bathroom including all modern amenities.
The wonderfull breakfast is more than ample and is prepared and served with great care.
Wendy, you should patent your business model and warm caring experience for all B & B's everywhere.

The Ascot House, Wendy (the owner), and Marietta (the town) are all treasures. Set in the middle of the historic town, the B&B is pedestrian-friendly and only two blocks away from the Susquehanna River. As a gift from our daughter and son-in-law, our stay included a scrumptious English afternoon tea with sandwiches, brownies, scones, muffins, cake, strawberries, homemade jam, and cup after cup of tea. The house has been beautifully redone with large warm and comfortable rooms that offer books, DVD's, puzzles, and games. We thoroughly enjoyed our time spent visiting with Wendy and learning about the town, her home, and herself. Thank you!
