Built in 2007, the house is an Americanized version of a French Country Manor. We are centrally located to Lancaster, Hershey, Harrisburg, Mechanicsburg, Carlisle and Gettysburg in a quiet, bucolic country setting. Stay with us and enjoy the peaceful ambiance, watch for the deer and wild turkey and listen to the song birds from the Screened In Porch or any of the outdoor seating areas. Watch TV in your private sitting area or curl up with a good book in the window seat – you are welcome to borrow a book from the house library. In the winter enjoy the fireplace in the Great Room when you come home from a day on the slopes at Ski Roundtop which is 5 minutes away. For the business traveler, we can offer you a small business center with copier/printer/scanner and fax machine. Your parking space is in the garage. In keeping with our desire to provide value at an very affordable price, a cold Continental Breakfast (coffee/tea, orange juice, lite flavored yogurt, an English Muffin and a sweet treat ) is served each morning at your leisure except Sunday when the last serving is 8:30. We look forward to welcoming you to your home away from home with us.

Our stay was perfect! Nancy and Bill are wonderful hosts! Their home is beautiful inside and out! It is located in a beautiful, hilly area. Our room was lovely and private. We would highly recommend this impeccable home!

Home away from home

4.6 on October 05, 2014

If you prefer all the comforts of home to a hotel room, this is the place. Lovely decor and delightful hosts. It was a bit out of the way from our family, and a dark drive at night, but it may not be for someone else. We would definitely recommend a stay.

Great place to stay

Really lovely home and grounds that are maintained immaculately by Nancy and Bill. The neighborhood is very peaceful as well. We stayed in the loft room for one night and had a great time. Nancy and Bill are very friendly and it was a great pleasure chatting with them. Would definitely return if we are ever in the area again.

This out of the way B&B is restful and Quiet. Innkeepers were very accommodating and helpful. It was a pleasure to sit and talk with them, we found much in common. Look forward to seeing them again.

Nice getaway

4.6 on July 12, 2014

My boyfriend (now fiance) and I spent four nights at Nancy and Bill's B&B, they were by far two of the nicest people I have ever met. This was the first time we ever stayed at a B&B and they were great hosts. We stayed in the library loft room and it was great, very private. We spend a good hour a day just talking to both of them, by the time we left the B&B we felt like we were leaving our parents. You know you had a good stay when you start missing the people who opened their house to you. Great price! Nice breakfast! Lovely home. My fiance and I will be staying here again if we return to PA. Nancy and Bill are the greatest!

Delightful visit in a a most elegant setting

4.8 on July 01, 2014

We had a wonderful time staying overnight at the French Country Home B&B. the rooms were exquisitely decorated and furnished. We felt very comfortable and at ease. The hosts, Donna and Bill, were most gracious and we had an enjoyable visit over breakfast. On top of everything, the rate was very reasonable and we would be delighted to stay there again if we are anywhere closeby.

Innkeeper Response

Good value in the countryside

4.4 on May 07, 2014

Loft room provided a lot of personal privacy and space. Wooded forest area across street was a great walk down to the creek. Saw 3 turkeys on the forest walk.. Nancy and Bill were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay again when back in central PA.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much for your review. We are glad you found your room pleasing and your stay satisfying. We are always looking for ways to improve our guests stay and appreciate all of your comments. We would look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Great getaway!

Unbelievable value! Highly recommend this place if you're looking for "quiet time" from work responsibilities in Harrisburg, York, or Carlisle. Also, the b&b is about ten minutes from Roundtop--what a great place to relax after a day on the slopes! Bill and Nancy are great hosts, too!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for the wonderful review. We were glad to have you here and hope that your travels bring you back to stay with us again.
