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.

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!

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!!

Dykeman House is a beautiful historic home that has been lovingly restored. Located in the scenic countryside of Pennsylvania. Shelley and John are great innkeepers and make you feel very welcome. Looking forward to visiting again.

Meeting John and Shelly for the first time felt like we must have met them before....great people and so accommodating. We had to leave a bit early the next morning and there was breakfast waiting for us. And what a breakfast it was...wonderful! The B & B is so easy to get to from the interstate too. We hope we will have the opportunity to spend the night again sometime. Thank you so much. Tony and Bertie

Hi, Both my husband and myself have stayed at B & B's in the UK, USA and Canada and we have to say this is one of the best we have ever stayed at. The owners are friendly, the room was wonderful (the picture on the web site does not do it justice) and the food was awesome. We were down in PA at a car show and our Challenger had a challenge...the battery died. We were ten miles from B & B, we called and the John came to where we were, picked up my husband and took him to have it replaced. After all of this we were greeted at the door of Dykeman House by Shelly who had place a bottle of wine with cheese and crackers out for us. The breakfasts was wonderful and plenty of very tasty food which filled us up. Our stay was great and we have already booked in for next year. Doris and Bill Knox Canada
