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.

This could not have been better. Comfortable room. Excellent food. Gracious hosts. Perfect location. Would stay there again in a heartbeat. And if you get the chance - go across the street and play bingo on Tuesday nights at the Legion!

Barb and Roger were great hosts on our stay in south central PA. Our room was clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated. Breakfast was excellent, from the Amish Friendship bread, the cold fruit cup and the daily breakfast entree(s). My wife and I have stayed at numerous B&B 's and this one was our favorite.

The breakfast was tasteful and there was lots of it - fresh fruit, sweet bread, french toast, eggs, sausage. The owners were very accommodating to a schedule different from their regular serving time. While all the rooms have a private bath, the bath for the Forget Me Knot room is beside the room and requires going out into the hall; the website does not make that clear. The room felt a bit cramped size wise, but it is the cheapest room available. The other rooms were spacious.
