Located in a lovely and historic part of Reading, on Hill Street, across from the Bandshell section of the city Park, is this very lovely Victorian, tastefully decorated, with charming touches and beautiful furnishings. The owners have very carefully restored the property, making it functional while at the same time allowing you to (literally) peek into the house's past. From the glass ceiling panels in the kitchen, exposing the ornate ceiling of long ago, to the small glass cut out panel at the kitchen counter, allowing us to look into what used to be a china cupboard but was built shut by previous owners - the owners, George and Cindy clearly are proud of the property and love to share its history with their guests. It's tastefully decorated and not at all overwhelming like some of these properties tend to be. We were greeted warmly and shown very much consideration and hospitality during our short stay. We were very pleased with the "Rose Room" - it had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable and comfortable. The bath products were wonderful! In the morning, we loved sitting on the very comfortable and peaceful front porch while George put the finishing touches on a very delicious and filling breakfast.

Owners George and Cindy are wonderful, accommodating, and informative! Cindy provided a tour of this beautiful 19th century renovated Victorian home that has an amazing amount of history to it which the owners researched well. We learned about the livingroom, which originally was designed as a room just for the men in the home and their male guests. The entrance hall has beautiful original stained glass over the front door; period furniture, Cindy explained, included a larger chair that was designed for a man, and two smaller pieces designed for women to sit forward, with the bustle of a dress on the chair behind; all this plus more was told to us by Cindy, with George supplying photos of what had been done with renovations, including the outside of the house with its historic renovated weathervane. The home is absolutely beautiful in its renovations which adhere to the orignally built structure with the exception of the kitchen which former owners remodeled. George and Cindy found an original china closet in a wall hidden behind the kitchen; they put in a viewing window with visual access for a visitor to see the inside of the closet. Gorgeous original patterned wood floors are throughout the house. Our room was small but very pretty, and clean as a whistle. The bathroom was a private one with a good sized stall shower. The original small-tile flooring in the bathroom was in very good shape. We went on a hot day, and AC was in all rooms; we never felt hot. Cindy and George are fabulous! They are full of information about the house and its history, as well as the city of Reading. Breakfast in the dining room (formerly the ladies drawing room) was technically continental but in fact was large, consisting of yummy homemade granola, a variety of homemade delicious baked goods, plus much more. George and Cindy stayed with us during breakfast to serve and chat. The home is in an attractive short block of Victorian homes on one side, with the park across the street. Nearby, the city of Reading is somewhat run down; however, we felt safe in the house at all times and were given a key to come and go as we pleased. A parking area on the rear of the well maintained property insured that visitors' cars stay safely off the street. If we decide to do another overnight in Reading we will definitely return to this wonderful oasis in the city of Reading.

Room tip: The review was based upon our stay in the blue room, which has a queen bed.

My business colleagues and I planned to be in Reading for one night. Not wanting to stay in the usual corporate-chain hotel, we looked into local options for inns or B&Bs. We came across this gem online; I called the establishment directly and had a very pleasant conversation with George, the innkeeper. Since the inn had only four rooms, we basically took it over for the night and had it to ourselves, which was perfect. When we arrived, Cindy (George's wife) welcomed us warmly and to some much appreciated lemonade and cookies. The inn itself is a large old Victorian filled with beautiful antiques and places to sit and relax. Each bedroom was uniquely themed and had a lovely bed, more antiques and its own bath/shower. George and his wife gave us keys not only to our rooms but also to the inn itself, so we were able to come in late from our evening engagement without feeling intrusive or restricted. The next morning, we were treated to a very delicious and healthful breakfast of yogurt, muffins, granola, fresh fruit and selection of coffees and teas. George again was a doting host, and gave us a very personal history of the town of Reading itelf.

We really appreciated George and Cindy's hospitality and accomodations - they were so flexible. Even though there is much about the inn to make it seem more of a romantic or 'girlfriend' getaway, it is also perfect for business associates traveling together. It's convenient to town (taxi service is very reasonable) and in a quiet location with ample parking.

Don't miss this one!
