This was our second Select Registry property, and we had high expectations going into it. We weren't disappointed! Rebecca was a great hostess, and we enjoyed chatting with her following a delicious breakfast each morning (the french toast was the best!). The inn was very nicely decorated and quiet (we could not hear any road noise from the cars driving by), and there was plenty to do nearby. We stayed in the Crimson Dove Suite, and we'd absolutely stay in there again!

We love older style B&Bs and Smithton Inn was outstanding in every way. Will stay again when traveling through PA. Be sure to make friends with Lucky...

Came here from Texas and picked the Inn for location and a desire to not "stay at the hotel". Glad I did! The room (sage) was great and the home has interesting period accents and a charming, gracious host. Breakfasts to look forward to as well.

Stayed here while visiting family and friends in the area. What was planned as just an overnight stay turned out to be an amazing experience. If your in the area staying at this classic inn is a "must-do."

What a lovely inn! My wife and I had a fabulous two night stay on Dec. 12-13, 2014. The room was cozy, comfortable, and we both loved the fireplace! Both breakfasts were yummy and we especially enjoyed getting to know and chatting with Rebecca (the innkeeper) during breakfast after our second night. We highly recommend this inn to anyone looking to get away for a night or two. We look forward to trying a different room on a future visit! Ben and Michelle

I was very satisfied with the hospitality and wonderful service we received. I reserved a room for my wife's birthday and, to my surprise, the room was upgraded for us! We were pleasantly surprised! The breakfast was amazing and we will definitely be back!! Rhett and Noelle Butler

My wife and I visited for two days to celebrate our 52 Wedding Anniversary. We were revisiting the locale of our honeymoon. The stay at the Smithton was the centerpiece of the trip. The innkeeper was not only a consummate professional but a charming, intelligent woman who made us feel welcome and special. I've stayed in scores of B&Bs over the years, and this one rates at or very near the top. The old building is well kept, clean, charming, and centrally located. The breakfast is more than anyone could expect and lovingly prepared by a hostess who loves to cook, too. My wife has been raving about the wonderful time we had to all her friends. I'd go back in a heartbeat as long as I have the heartbeats to allow that.

We have stayed here for years and were always pleased to spend time in this historic inn. The new owners have refurbished the inn that had become a bit in disrepair over the years and it is lovely. The owners of the inn are friendly and happy to talk about the history of the building. Breafast was great.

Rebecca and Dave love cooking, traveling and entertaining. They love to sail and used to own a 38 foot Beneteau. Ask Dave what it's like to sail UP the Mississippi! Rebecca runs and bikes to stay in shape. She's done 9 marathons, including Big Sur in California. Their eleven year old son, Patrick, will be helping out in the B&B as well... whenever he's not playing baseball that is!
Baked Eggs in a Ham Cup with Cheesy Polenta
This dish is as yummy to look at as it is to eat! It's the first dish we served back in June and it's been a guest favorite ever since.
