Beautiful home away from home

5 on October 09, 2013

My husband an I stayed here for our wedding anniversary and we were treated like royalty. The rooms were perfect and clean. Breakfast in the morning was outstanding. It was a beautiful location with a nice view of the river and so close to many fantastic restaurants. The proprietors and innkeeper were all great!!! I highly recommend staying here.

Lovely and quiet

The mix of state of the art amenities and craftsmanship of days gone by makes this a lovely stop for a weary traveler. Original art (for sale) graces the walls and if one had the time to lounge, the public spaces are cozy and inviting. My only negative comment concerns the gated parking area. Accessed from the alley, to enter after hours one must exit their car to key in the code. As a female traveling alone, I was not comfortable with doing this. I would have been even more unhappy had the weather been anything but warm and dry. I applaud them for their security measures, but I was more concerned about my personal safety the safety of my car. All things considered, I had an enjoyable stay.

Felt like home, only nicer.

So clean, so comfortable. Just overnight, but a wonderful B&B experience. Bed was a dream for comfort. The two headed shower was a nice way to wake up, surrounded by warmth. Would return without hesitation. Jennifer

I'm hooked! This B&B was great. So many rooms to enjoy and so many things throughout to enjoy. My favorite is the patio overlooking the river!

This place went above and beyond my expectations. I loved how many different rooms there were to enjoy! Innkeeper was fabulous!

A Perfect B&B Experience

4.6 on July 22, 2012

We stayed in the Bryce Room and didn't want to leave. We felt like we were in a display house for Restoration Hardware. Everything on their website is true to description. I researched many other b&b's along our route from Baltimore to Harrisburg and none compared to the sophistication and value of City House. The staff is so friendly (but not imposing), the room was spotless (even under the bed was dust-free) and so spacious, the bathroom is AMAZING, the water temperature and pressure were perfect, the bed was perfect - slightly firm, the linens were made by angels in a small factory in heaven, the room temperature was perfect with a noiseless fan above the bed, modern iPhone charger/alarm clock, the wall mounted TV swivels and was a perfect size for the room, great river view from tall windows (which open to let in fresh air if you want), I could go on and on. The breakfast itself was light fare served in the dining room: homemade banana bread, bagels, english muffins, cereal, fresh fruit, hard boiled eggs, coffee and orange juice. The house and room are secure - you're given security codes to the house and your room (bonus - no keys to lose) with the freedom to come and go as you like. Though all the rooms are on the same (second) floor of the house, you don't feel claustrophobic or stacked on top of each other. It is an old house and the floors do creak, but we didn't hear anyone and weren't bothered by any noise at night. The grounds surrounding the house were charming - landscaped like an English garden. The whole house is just so inviting and peaceful. We are seriously trying to find an excuse to come to Harrisburg again just so we can stay here! I wish they had more locations, because we would pick City House every time.

modern and timeless at the same time

The City House B&B is by far the best place to stay in the Harrisburg area if you are looking for an above average, comfortable place. The rates are extremely reasonable for the quality of service and hospitality provided, the rooms are outstanding, and the charm of the old days blended in with the modern amenities and features is amazing. The innkeeper, Bruce, was very friendly and personable and helped make our stay enjoyable.

Updated quaint home in a historic area of PA

city house is very updated but still has old charm. Very convenient to historic Harrisburg. We loved being able to walk everywhere after we arrived at City House.

Lovely place
