The Mary-Penn is a farm house from 1743 that is split in two by the mason dixon line. In 2008 Bea and David Waybright opened the Mary–Penn Bed and Breakfast after renovations to enhance the comfort of its guests. The house consists of three bedrooms upstairs — two in Maryland and one in Pennsylvania, which has access to a smaller room with a single bed.A newly remodeled bathroom includes a whirlpool tub with shower.The first floor features a charming parlor, breakfast room (perfect for family-style dining), kitchen, bed room and a full bath and a large family room added in 1990 that overlooks Marsh Creek. A basement with a large, stone fireplace on the Maryland side is used as a sitting room and game room and has access to the outdoors. The house itself is situated on the back 200 acres of the 900-acre Waybright family farm at the end of a one mile lane. Don’t forget to take a walk and see the two mason Dixon line mile markers.

My wife and I spend our anniversary at the Mary Penn B&B over the Halloween weekend. The house is in a very relaxing environment. The creek flowed just outside the house which is good drive into the farm, so no outside noises were heard. Deer were seen out in the fields in the morning. Other wildlife is readily seen also, such as hawks and the occasional eagle. But the best part of the experience was meeting the owners Bea and David. They made you feel at home. If you visit Mary Penn, you must sit down with them and talk about the history of the house and of their family history in the area. We plan to return with our friends for a relaxing visit.

Where to start? Absolutely amazing! This was my first ever bed and breakfast and to be honest it will be very hard to top! From the minute I met Bea till the last minute of my stay I felt like I have known her for years! she gave an amazing, informational tour. She made me feel like I was at home and that's what I wanted, Amazing view and very peaceful! I am sure I could keep talking about it because I have so much to say but I don't want to give away my experience and time there, you need to go and see for YOURSELF! Amazing job Bea! Beautiful place and your such an amazing person. Your friend from PA! Ill be back! :) I told you that! Don't wait, make a date!

What a wonderful place to relax and get away-who could ask for better accommodations and the hosts go out of their way to accommodate you. Can not wait for our next visit. Geoffrey & Jennifer Domowicz West Springfield, PA

Every so often you are drawn to a place that has a special meaning. For us this is the spot. Not only is their home spotless, comfortable, and full of history but the hostess, Bea, is a treasure in her own right! From the moment we entered the front door and learned the history of the Mary-Penn it was clear this was not just a place to lay your head but a place to call home. Recommend it highly!

Bea and David are the perfect hosts. We stayed for the weekend and we all were treated like family. Our coma onions had been there before and this was my first trip and definitely recommend a stay. The history alone of the house is amazi and coupled with the hospitality makes this place amazing.

Bea and David will take great care of you at the MaryPenn. Part of Inn is in PA, the other in MD, but this Inn is all together a treat. When you arrive Bea will give you a history of the Inn and then treat you to wine and a cheese plat to be enjoyed when you like. There is a beautiful stream right by the Inn, where you can enjoy these treats and solitude. Breakfast was great along with the company of Bea and David. If you like beautiful settings, the quiet, and great hospitality. Gayl and Kurt

My dad and I took a father-son trip to Gettysburg. We absolutely loved the Mary-Penn B&B. First of all, it is extremely cool how historic the building is. It's a farmhouse built in 1740 with the second floor put on using bricks thrown off as ballast in Baltimore Harbor in 1793. It's in an absolutely lovely setting (surrounded by 900 acres of farm) away from the tourist hustle and bustle. Bea and David are extremely nice and were wonderful hosts to us. (David even drove us to see an original marker laid by Mason and Dixon in the 1700s not far from the property. The breakfasts were huge and delicious (and this is coming from a big eater). We stayed in the William Penn room which was really nice and great for us because there was an annex with a twin bed that I slept in. I was a little concerned the inn would be too far out of town, but it's not. It's close and the setting is so lovely and private it's worth the extra short drive. (Also, downtown Gettysburg is a little overrun with fudge shops and haunted tours for my tastes.)

We were in the area for a wedding at The Links at Gettysburg. We were looking for a quiet, out-of-the-way place to stay. We found it! About a mile off the main road up a dirt road sat this beautiful, old, fully restored home. Bea greeted us as we pulled up like we were old friends there for a visit. It was the first time we met! She gave us a tour of the house and explained all the history behind it. The place is immaculate and was like going back in time. The next morning I took my cup of coffee outside and sat by the creek. A perfect setting! Bea made us breakfast and Dave joined us for what felt like a family gathering. My wife and I can't say enough good things about this B & B or our hosts! Thank you so much and we'll be seeing you again. Bob & Kim Graffin. New Freedom, PA.
