My wife and I were attending a conference in Harrisburg and had some unexpected changes in schedules. The Gordon's were so nice and accommodating to our change in schedule. We had a great time! The rooms are wonderful! I would and have recommended this B&B to my family.

We have stayed at many B&B Inns and some measure up and some less so. In the case of the Colonial Crossroads Inn, it was a complete pleasure. The accommodations were clean, the service was pleasant and cheerful, and breakfast was real food. Would we pay a return visit ... you bet.

A family visit to the Mechanicsburg area found three siblings and two spouses staying at this charming B/B. Steeped in history, we were welcomed with photos and explanations of what our country was like in 1790, when this building was constructed. Not to fear, the Gordons have done a wonderful job of updating everything to 21st century. Central air, WIFI, cable TV, and HUGE bathrooms...and delicious breakfasts are the norm. Even a warm welcome by Flash, the Gordon's dog, is included. Kudos to Ed, Barb, and Flash for making a true GEM in the B/B world.

Beautiful B and B full of history. The inn keepers are so friendly and welcoming and so is their dog- Flash. Great breakfast! Would stay there again- looking forward to my next visit.

Beautiful B & B. Really a little gem for the area. The grounds around the home are beautiful and very well maintained. The home is quaint and very well accessorized. Barbara and Ed are very proud of their home and it shows. The breakfasts were excellent and it was nice to have snacks in the dining area and bedroom. The beds were comfortable and rooms including bathrooms were very clean and tidy. We appreciated that instructions or suggestions were typed and posted near the TV remote or ceiling fan or in the bathroom. We cam in for a relative's wedding where the rest of our family stayed at one of several chain hotels in the area. I know our family was jealous when we shared our experience at Colonial Crossroads. We would definitely recommend this to anyone staying in the area and we hope to come back and stay again.

My room was ready when I arrived. The Inn Keeper gave me a tour of the common areas and told about the next days breakfast. I stayed in the Pennsylvania room and the bed was very comfortable. Delightful stay! Clean and historic charm. Hope to stay here again when I am in the area.

We spent a weekend getaway visit here for our first time at a bed and breakfast and were pleasantly surprised. The home, and the dog, were warm and inviting and Barb greeted us at the door addressing me by my first name as if we had known each other before. Breakfast was scheduled around us and we enjoyed all the organic homemade dishes that Barb and they're children made for us. We had nearby activities planned for Hershey and general site seeing that made the trip complete. Overall this was a very nice experience and we looked forward to retreating to our room with the fireplace and chocolate covered strawberries each night. Thank you again Ed and Barb.

My husband and I went to Colonial Crossroads for our first overnight away from our small kids. With our busy schedules, we hadn't done proper planning on how we'd spend our day. Ed and Barb helped with our request for "a little town to walk around and look in stores" by sending us to Boiling Springs, which had an adorable art gallery and fly fishing store, and a river and lake filled with "boiling springs" (fed via underground springs) and swans. They also gave us a great suggestion for a bike ride that took us by a beautiful scenic river under gorgeous trees with unique farmhouses. We even used their resources to choose dinner - a fabulous "authentic" Greek restaurant that we would highly recommend. We enjoyed the cozy in-room fireplace, soaker tub, delicious home-made granola/fruit/yogurt, french toast, bacon for breakfast, the homemade cookies, and the immaculately cared for and clean surroundings. Ed and Barb were the ultimate innkeepers - they were helpful and kind, but also gave us the space we craved on our first 24 hours by ourselves in 3 years. Thank you!!

Recently returned from our stay at Colonial Crossroads B&B. We instantly felt at home and the owners bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable.

The inn keepers Ed and Barb were friendly and very accommodating. We stayed while it was snowing and the next day Ed cleaned off our car and made the parking lot easy to exit. The breakfast was healthy and diverse with lots of choices. Would recommend a stay anytime! Hot tub FABULOUS!
