Great B & B near SU

Absolutely the best mattress ever...even better then our own. We stayed in the Lizzie room, and enjoyed the historical stories of the Civil War era. We also enjoyed the evening treat, and the breakfast was superb! The hosts were very friendly and accommodating.

Affordable & Comfortable

We are so glad we chose the Dykeman Inn for our stay. We found it clean and comfortable. John & Shelly were very accommodating to our schedule. Our breakfasts were outstanding meals and over and above what we expected. We felt very welcomed there and will definitely go back.

We were looking for a quiet, comfortable B&B within reach of the sights we wanted to see in Pennsylvania, and we found it! The setting was lovely, and very quiet and peaceful, but close to downtown. Our hosts Shelly and John were very welcoming, and helpful with ideas for local dining (we loved CJ's!). Breakfasts were huge and hearty - enough to see us through to dinner! Our room was large and very comfortable.

Perfect Bed and Breakfast experience!

I have stayed in several bed and breakfasts and this is my favorite. Beautiful historical home filled with lovely antiques. Enjoyed John and Shelly's hospitality and the homemade chocolate chip cookies were a big hit with my husband. Shelly even packed some up for us to take with us on the trip home. I would highly recommend Dykeman House!

Excellent B&B

This was an excellent B&B. Hosts were very hospitable. Rooms were beautiful and very clean. Breakfast was very plentiful and delicious. Location was near to many attractions in Shippensburg as well as surrounding communities. It's a "must stay" place!!

Lovely home & innkeepers!
