Built in 1931, The Robertshaw Country House is a grand example of a Colonial Revival house constructed with fine craftsmanship and excellent materials. Amidst the natural beauty of the grounds at St. Emma’s, the Robertshaw Country House offers a charming and lovingly decorated home-like setting for a home-away-from-home experience. Our guests will enjoy a European style breakfast with an extensive selection of wonderful foods. Guests are invited to enjoy our beautiful gardens and outdoor terrace, and to walk the outdoor paths. Those so desiring may join our monastic community for The Liturgy of the Hours and/or daily Mass, or simply enjoy some quiet prayer time in one of our chapels.

The Robertshaw Country House was spotlessly clean and beautifically decorated. Christmas decorations were everywhere in the common areas and inside the large and well appointed rooms. Sister Renata was a most gracious hostess and went out of her way to make us feel welcome. Although the property was about 80 years old, it had all of the modern conveniences today's travelers have come to expect. The property and its country setting are beautiful and very quiet. We greatly enjoyed our visit.
Thank you!!! We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at The Robertshaw!!! Please come visit us in 2016!!!

A unique, amazing place to stay. Sr. Renata greeted us warmly, explained how the B & B worked (basically, guests have the run of the whole guest house) and showed us to our room - The Garden Room. Double queen beds and loads of detailed touches to make our stay comfortable. There are 100 acres of grounds that belong to the monastery so it's great for a jog or a walk. And SO peaceful. Breakfast was help yourself with lots of choice. There are two sitting rooms and a beautifully decorated dining room, as well as (downstairs) a gift shop and TV lounge. Highly recommended.
Thank you so much for taking the time to review our B&B!!! We are so glad that you enjoyed it so much!!! Remember to 'Come Back HOME...Soon!!!'

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Robertshaw Country House last week. We could not believe what a hidden gem this place is! We happened to stumble upon this bed and breakfast as we were looking to break up our drive home from Washington DC to Chicago; and boy, did we hit the jackpot! We cannot say enough about our stay here. Sister Renata and the other adorable sisters you see whisking in and out of the house are absolutely endearing, welcoming and more accommodating than any other Innkeepers we have stayed with in the past. We typically stay at Diamond Collection properties around the country and found this one to be the most comfortable and peaceful we've found. We have already told many of our friends and family about the Robertshaw Country House and cannot wait to come back and make our stay longer this time!
Thank you!!! We are so glad that your stay with us was such a great experience!!! We can't wait for you to come back and visit the Robertshaw, we look forward to you coming back home soon!!!

We've stayed at the Robertshaw several times since I discovered it a year ago. Each time we are greeted with a hearty, "Welcome Home", and we are always made to feel special. Each room has a cozy gas fireplace, single cup keurig coffee maker, micro fridge and microwave, and large closet complete with fluffy robes. The Sunset Room has a very large bathroom ensuite, with a powerful shower head. Just about every amenity that you can imagine is available: shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, soap, even a toothbrush and toothpaste should you forget yours! And, a hair dryer as well. Towels are fluffy, and there is a super comfy bath mat that will definitely bring a smile to your face when you step out of the shower! The rooms are immaculate. Breakfast is European Continental with a lovely fruit salad set out in the gorgeous dining room. The kitchen boasts a new waffle maker which we took advantage of and made the best waffles that I have ever tasted….even better than those ordered in a restaurant. There were several flavors of syrup available for the waffles. There is a Keurig coffemaker off of the dining room, and the dinette area has quite an array of yogurt, sliced meats and cheeses, hard boiled eggs, oatmeal, various bread for toast, bagels, and numerous condiments. The main house holds a substantial library and very large living room, with plenty of space to spread out. Both rooms have gas fireplaces. The grounds are peaceful and there are trails through the woods to enjoy. You really do need to pop your head into the St. Walburga chapel. The windows came from an old church in Pittsburgh and are spectacular to view. The innkeeper is always happy to make reservations for us at nearby restaurants and we have not been disappointed. I just want to note, that onsite dining includes Continental Breakfast. There is no restaurant or other dining affiliated with the B&B. That was the purpose of my 3 star rating for onsite dining
Thank you so much for this AWESOME review!!! It makes our day to know that you love the details enough to actually list them all!!! WOW! Thank you again! We look forward to 'Welcoming you Home' to The Robertshaw again...soon!!!!

I've stayed at this gem three times in the past year. The house is in a tranquil setting in the country. It is very convenient to many historical spots, Hannastown and Bushy Run Battlefield being two that we very much enjoyed. The rooms are spacious, as well as spotless and decorated beautifully. Beds are queen sized and very comfortable. Each bedroom has a cozy fireplace as well as single serve Keurig with k-cups of different varieties. Rooms come with plenty of towels, guest shampoo/conditioner/bodywash/soap. The bathrooms are unique, representing a 50's era with unusual colors, which I find to be quite entertaining. Hot water was plentiful and the shower was great! I've stayed in 3 different rooms, and was quite satisfied with each. My last trip was early January, when the Christmas decorations were still on display. The interior was magnificent. Breakfast is European Continental where you can help yourself to many items, including meats, cheese, hard boiled eggs. Or you can make yourself a waffle or oatmeal, or enjoy some yogurt. You will not go away hungry. There are no televisions in the rooms (which I prefer), but there is a large screen television downstairs in a special room with sofas, chairs, and a fireplace. Next to that room is a kitchenette with snacks and a Keurig so that you can help yourself while enjoying the tv. If you get outside, there are a few walking trails, and a lovely chapel devoted to St. Walburga, with Old German Stained Glass Windows representing her life. Breathtakingly beautiful! I can't say enough about how great this place was. Is it any wonder that I continue to visit?
Thank you for taking time to write your wonderful review! Wow! We are so delighted that we have exceeded your expectations at The Robertshaw! We really appreciate you sharing the details of your stay and look forward to welcoming you back "Home" soon!!!
