This beautiful Victorian home, located along a tree-lined street of gracious homes in the north end of Chambersburg, was built in 1880 by John Watson Craig(1830-1908). Mr. Craig "...was an able and successful farmer, carrying on his occupation successively at Welsh Run, Shippensburg, Chambersburg and Mercersburg. He returned from Mercersburg to Chambersburg in 1882 and in partnership with Thomas M. Nelson, successfully carried on ... a large lumber business. In 1898 he retired from active business and quietly attended to the affairs of his large estate. In disposition he was generous and kind and his friends always found a warm welcome awaiting them under his kindly roof." Guests are welcomed to large, pleasant, air-conditioned bedrooms with views of Dogwood and Maple trees. The Mansions porches, patios, and lawn are available for your relaxation. The Mansion features three large common rooms with fireplaces and a dining room on the first floor. 19th century architecture and intricate wood carving is found throughout the Mansion, from the corner turret, to the elaborately designed and crafted foyer and open staircase leading to the third floor. A family collection of antiques enhance the richness of the Mansion.

I was needing a place to stay for the weekend while participating in a stressful clinical evaluation. It was my first time trying at a Bed and Breakfast. The home is gorgeous, very Victorian with a subtle pleasant smell. Roger and Barb were very accommodating and even had a delicious breakfast ready both mornings early. I was able to relax on the front porch in the evening. I would highly recommend it over the other accommodations in town. The location is central for Chambersburg and easy access to 81.

The house is beautiful and sprawling with plenty of room to unwind or catch up on the day's work. Barbara and Roger are gracious hosts and very friendly company. You will love the breakfast - soooo good!

Such a beautiful B&B. Walking into this home I felt like I was in the late 1800's. Everything detail was impeccable. The hosts made you feel like you have known them your entire life. So personal and friendly. My boyfriend wasn't feeling well and they did what ever they could to make him comfortable. Hope to come back in a few months. Thank you and God Bless!!

We really enjoyed everything about the Craig Victorian Bed and Breakfast. We had two spacious and comfortable rooms. Roger and Barb made our stay welcoming and we will come back when we visit the area again.

My husband and I stayed here last weekend in order to visit Gettysburg, and it was lovely! Our room had an electric fireplace, a wonderful jetted tub and glassed-in shower and beautifully appointed, authentic Victorian furnishings. The proprietor, Roger, was friendly, warm and accommodating and made a delicious breakfast each morning. Highly recommend and will certainly return if ever in the area again.

Love the hydreangea room. Got a great night's sleep after a long drive.

Wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy more of the B&B and to explore the town

We were greatly fulfilled during our stay: woodwork intricate in detail and robust in color and quantity, rooms appointed well with antiques, the porch a wonderful place to play a board game and take in the lovely landscaping, the linens extraordinary, conversing with other guests at breakfast delightful, the food delicious, and hospitality of Barbara and Roger wonderful.
