Nice and Quiet Place to Stay

Stone Manse Inn is a very nice, clean, and quiet place to stay. The hospitality was awesome. We didn't get a chance to have breakfast, but from other reviews I heard it is great. I would definitely recommend and if I'm ever in the area again; I will be staying here.

The Stone Manse Inn Gets It!

5 on May 05, 2016

My wife and I spent two wonderful nights at the Stone Manse Inn; actually in the Willemite Guest House which is a detached cabin just a short pathway walk from the main house. Private, quaint, nicely appointed (in both antiques and modern conveniences) are just a few of the adjectives that aptly described our accommodations. However, our favorite time spent at the guest house was on the unassuming small side brick patio equipped with chairs and a nice double-rocker. The patio overlooks the Yellow Breeches Creek and is tree covered. We found a set of books in the guest house called Morning Coffee, Afternoon Tea and Evening Wine. They were filled with short quips from famous people about the book’s topic and we laughed out- loud at their truth. This was an unexpected pleasure on a sunny afternoon. Yes, we did have a bottle of red wine nearby. Myra and Phil are gracious hosts; Myra greeted us upon arrival and gave us a quick orientation. Phil prepared a tasty and hearty breakfast each day (and he made sure coffee was ready when we came into the dining room). Although I’m sure the innkeepers do not always have the time for “side-tours”, Phil did give us a walk-through of the inn, telling us facts and stories about its centuries of history. The inn is conveniently located to thoroughfares nearby to Harrisburg and Gettysburg. This made my business trip commute to a nearby ski area easy and it was equally a quick ride to Gettysburg National Military Park the next day for a pleasure trip my wife and I made. The Stone Manse Inn was one of our favorite B & B experiences; they get what it takes to please their guests.

Stone Manse is lovely

Beautiful house, wonderful hosts. Great amenities in the rooms. Very close to highway, easy to get to Harrisburg, Hershey and Gettysburg. I will be back!

Best B&B in Pennsylvania

The best area B&B with great hosts and home cooked breakfasts that keep you going all day! This is the fourth time I've spent a week at the The Stone Manse Inn and I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. You won't regret trying it next time that you're in the Harrisburg/New Cumberland area.

Wedding Night Stay

5 on September 18, 2015

We stayed in the carriage house of the Stone Manse Inn the night of our wedding. What a wonderful, cozy place it was! We instantly fell in love with it. The little touches around the rooms were fantastic! Coffee, tea, lighting. Very romantic, we loved everything about it. The nicest thing was the chalkboard sign saying Congratulations. It was such a personal touch, we can't wait to go back. The owners were so sweet and breakfast was delicious. We got a tour of the main house and every room was beautiful.

Two Thumbs Up and Ten Toes In The Air

This was an unexpected stop for us. Fabulous, fantastic, fun, the best stop of our trip. We stayed in the guest house. What an incredible experience. The short time we were there was GREAT. Phil and Myra were very welcoming and spent time just chatting with us about the history of the Inn. They were very accommodating on our special diet needs. Phil did a great job cooking breakfast. We even enjoyed visiting with other guests staying there. Everyone was so friendly. This is very well worth your stop. We hope we get to come back and visit soon.

Historic charm, great breakfast!

I recently stayed at the Stone Manse Inn for two nights in the middle of the week while at a work event in Harrisburg. I prefer to stay in family run establishments over chain hotels, if possible, so it was convenient that Stone Manse had at least one room that was under the government rate for reimbursement. The room, and especially the breakfast, were well worth the money. No stale bagels or English muffins in a hotel lobby--instead, I was served home-cooked eggs, sausage, toast, and more. What a great way to start the day. The Inn itself is full of history, and I enjoyed a short tour. The innkeepers were friendly and accommodating. Can't recommend this place highly enough.

Great place to stay

We stayed for our anniversary and had a great time. Wonderful landscape with a creek on the property. Breakfast was delicious and the conversation was delightful. We will definitely be going back.

Excellent Last-minute Find

5 on July 13, 2015

Looking for a room months before a local event, the prices were more for a hotel vs. Manse Inn, comparably. The room and private bath were very roomy and clean. It was one thing to save some money, but the personal touches, the attention by the innkeepers, breakfast, tour of the facility, knowledge of the area, etc., etc., etc. Well worth the time, price and the location was off the main road just enough to feel the seclusion and still be close to where we wanted to visit. Recommended to say the least and next time we will plan to stay in one of the other rooms just for the different experience! Thanks again for everything!!!
