French Country Home B&B

601 Cedar Heights Dr , Mechanicsburg, PA 17055 USA (Show map)

About

Built in 2007, the house is an Americanized version of a French Country Manor. We are centrally located to Lancaster, Hershey, Harrisburg, Mechanicsburg, Carlisle and Gettysburg in a quiet, bucolic country setting. Stay with us and enjoy the peaceful ambiance, watch for the deer and wild turkey and listen to the song birds from the Screened In Porch or any of the outdoor seating areas. Watch TV in your private sitting area or curl up with a good book in the window seat – during your stay, you are welcome to borrow a book from the house library. Your parking space is in the garage. Please note that our check in time is from 3:00-9:00 - we do not accept any check in after 9:00 unless it is as a result of an emergency ie late plane arrival time. In keeping with our desire to provide value at an very affordable price, a cold Continental Breakfast (coffee/tea, orange juice, lite flavored yogurt, an English Muffin and a sweet treat ) is served each morning between 7:00-8:30. We look forward to welcoming you to your home away from home with us.

Wonderful experience

Nancy and Bill were warm, hospitable and created a great ambiance at their home that provided us a home away from home experience. We felt extremely comfortable and welcome. All the best- Eddie and Connie

The couple that owns the residence are just wonderful!! Everything is very clean and orderly. We would probably be great friends if we lived nearby. Would definitely stay there again.


Wonderful stay

This is what hospitality is about. Wonderful people, beautiful home. The upstairs bed is quite hard, my only word of caution if you are someone who is used to a pillow top. We will be back!


A lovely restful evening/day

We were coming in from a very long weekend of work and were exhausted. They were very welcoming and had a list of dinner places in the area which was very helpful. The room was fantastic and very comfortable. Breakfast was incredible and we had a lovely time chatting with our hosts over it. Highly recommend.


Loved it!

Super clean and super nice people! It was a little bit of a drive to visit Hershey but we thought it was definitely worth it.


Would definitely stay again

Great B & B close to Gettsburg

I recently stayed here for a long weekend trip to Gettysburg. The price was actually a little cheaper than many of the hotels in the area. Nice place to have a weekend get-away, yet close enough to easily get to Gettysburg, Hershey and Lancaster, PA. The owners are a lovely couple and gave recommendations for restaurants in the area. They also serve a nice light breakfast. I strongly recommend staying here.


Lovely retreat

Beautiful home, friendly hosts, very economical. To cut down cost,the owners serve a cold breakfast, but it was adequate. We would highly recommend this bed and breakfast.

Our stay in the French Country Home B&B was wonderful. The room was exceptionally clean and the value for the stay simply cannot be beat for the area. If you are looking for a great place to lay your head, I highly recommend the French Country B&B.
