French Country Home B&B

601 Cedar Heights Dr , Mechanicsburg, PA 17055 USA (Show map)

About

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 desk. 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 between 7:00-9:00 except Sunday when the last serving is 8:30. We look forward to welcoming you to your home away from home with us.

The Quiet Country

Nancy and Bill were gracious hosts and we had an enjoyable quiet retreat from our busy life for a day. Very satisfied! Thank you!


A peaceful, pleasant stay

4.8 on November 13, 2015

My girlfriend and I stayed in the downstairs room for two days. First of all, the pictures do not do this house justice. The home is gorgeous inside and out, and sits in a pretty somewhat secluded area. Our room was large and very cozy ( and my girlfriend and I agreed that it was the most comfortable bed we have slept on in our entire lives). Bill and Nancy are extremely hospitable and friendly, and it honestly felt like we were staying with old friends when we got there. They were full of suggestions for activities in nearby areas, and were very easy to talk to. Definitely coming back here when we are in the area again.


You will meet new friends at FCH!

The place is gorgeous and the hosts were very friendly and nice. We had a lovely time and felt just like we have visited old friends. The B&B with its guest room is quite tastefully arranged, a really lovely place to stay and enjoy a weekend getaway or perhaps a week's long vacation.

Exquisite Visit in a Country Setting

5 on May 17, 2015

W thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the French Country Home B&B. Nancy and Bill were wonderful/generous hosts and made sure we had everything we needed and more. Our loft room was beautifully decorated and the bed was very comfortable. The continental breakfast was delicious and plenty. The setting is idyllic and very peaceful. We would definitely come back here again.
