“Wonderful getaway!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

The Ascot B&B is perfect for a weekend getaway or when a few days are needed to unwind. Wendy and her staff go above and beyond what you would expect in a host. The rooms were spotless, and very comfy. The meet and greet wine reception - FABULOUS! Breakfast was grand - everything made fresh and plenty to fill you for a day of sightseeing. We entered as guests and left as friends. Truly can't wait to return. Please share with your family and friends. Michele and Jim Ostrowski (8/16/13)

Room Tip: We stayed in the Bedford room which is the largest. Very spacious with a sitting room. The room has...

We actually are on the way home from ascot house now & wish we were still there! Got a grupon for this amazing place & enjoyed every minute of our stay! Wendy & her staff are great. We stayed in Surrey which wasn't my original choice because while it had it has a 2 person soaking tub I wanted the room with the Jacuzzi however this room turned out to be perfect, tub was great, bed was comfortable we even used Wendy's cards & games to keep busy at night. Breakfast was delicious & we deff will be coming back!

We had a great weekend at the Ascot House! Wendy was so warm and welcoming, we felt like she was like family we had known for a long time. The bed was so comforable and the room was cute. The breakfast was fit for a king or queen, delicious and lots of it. We loved the English Garden and we could not have asked for more on our visit. If anyone gets the opportunity to get away and would like to try a B&B, you should try the Ascot House in Marietta, PA. Joan & Wayne

We had our wedding at Ascot House B&B and it was absolutely amazing! Wendy the innkeeper was so accommodating to our every need! The food and service was out if this world! The rooms are absolutely gorgeous! We are so very happy and pleased that we chose Ascot House B&B to have our wedding there. We will definitely be back for many more visits!

Wendy is a greatest hostess, very proper, warm and accomodating British lady.

We bought a two night package for a family of 4 via Groupon. Due to personal reason, we had to reschedule the trip twice, finally we got a time slot on July 8-9. Ascot B&B does not accept children, and with a few email exchanges, Wendy agreed to admit my girls 12 and 14. After the stay, she hugged them and said "You could come any time, you're not children, you are young ladies".

When we arrived, she told us we had the whole house to ourselves, because the cozy room adjacent to our reserved room was not occupied, Wendy said the girls could use it free of charge. We had very much the whole right wing of the house to ourselves. The rooms were very clean, organized with a British flair.

Delicious and generous breakfast was served on each day on Wedgewood chinaware with five choices of juice drinks, fresh fruit, blueberry muffin or apple turnover and either scrambled egg with bacon or waffle over strawberries, and of course coffee and tea. Our picky children were looking forward to breakfast because we know they will be pampered. Since we were the only guests at the time, we had Wendy with us the whole two mornings. At our request, she took the time to give us the history of Ascot B&B, to share her experiences running it, to hightlight the small town of Marietta and the vicinity (where to eat, what to do). We took up on her suggestion and they turned out to be all great.

In all, we had a great time and promised the kids we will come back again. At first, I was apprehensive about coming to small town on a Monday-Tuesday for fear there is nothing to do. At the end we were glad, we did. We had quiet and relaxing moments at the house. In the morning, we had Wendy to ourselves to relish on her amusing stories all cutely told in a charming British accent. Our girls will remember the experience and the stories for life.

Thank you Wendy for your hospitality and thoughtfulness. Overall, an unforgettable trip and wonderful B&B experience for the whole family!

Marietta, Pennsylvia is a "diamond in the rough." Wendy, the proprietrees, completely renovated this historic building and thereby was a catalyst for renewal throughout the city. The large dining area and manicured garden make the Ascot House perfect for weddings and family reunions. We stayed in the "Surrey" room with a bathroom that's paradoxically too big! Formerly an adjacent and same size room; the tub, separate shower, toilet, and sinks are awkwardly spaced against the walls. Conversely, the bedroom has only one chair and no closet. My wife was shocked when the shower leaver came off in her hand. Fortunately, I had a "travel" tool that included pliers, and I stopped the water. Wendy and the staff are very accommodating and gracious. If you don't mind a few querks, I highly recommend the Ascott House.

I am so sorry that the guests did not like this huge bathroom... usual response is WOW!

Thank you, I appreciate the comment about just one chair. I will get another one in there.

A house that is 213 years old has its quirks and indeed there is not a closet in that room, lots of drawers, a free standing clothes rack with coat hangers and also hooks behind doors, but no closet per se. I did not want to spoil the historic integrity of the house by adding a modern closet - but I will make sure that the listing is changed so that people know in advance that there is no closet. This review is very helpful.

Just wanted to say that the handle coming off the shower was a strange happening. It was a grub screw that had come loose!!! as soon as the guests left it was a 5 second repair to just tighten the screw - don't know how it happened.... I guess with the amount of use the shower gets it must have come loose... (first time in 6 years!)

Given as a Groupon gift from our children. Ascot House was just the type of getaway needed to relax and refresh. The Inn felt like we were home, very comfortable. The proprietress, Wendy and her staff were exceptional to our needs. Her knowledge of the area surrounding Lancaster helped in knowing some key places to be sure to visit. We had only traveled around or through this area prior to this visit and now will try and find more time to come back. So peaceful and relaxing in the Suffolk room! We will be sure to book another getaway soon.
