About

This beautiful Victorian home, located along a tree-lined street of gracious homes in the north end of Chambersburg, was built in 1880 by John Watson Craig(1830-1908). Mr. Craig "...was an able and successful farmer, carrying on his occupation successively at Welsh Run, Shippensburg, Chambersburg and Mercersburg. He returned from Mercersburg to Chambersburg in 1882 and in partnership with Thomas M. Nelson, successfully carried on ... a large lumber business. In 1898 he retired from active business and quietly attended to the affairs of his large estate. In disposition he was generous and kind and his friends always found a warm welcome awaiting them under his kindly roof." Guests are welcomed to large, pleasant, air-conditioned bedrooms with views of Dogwood and Maple trees. The Mansions porches, patios, and lawn are available for your relaxation. The Mansion features three large common rooms with fireplaces and a dining room on the first floor. 19th century architecture and intricate wood carving is found throughout the Mansion, from the corner turret, to the elaborately designed and crafted foyer and open staircase leading to the third floor. A family collection of antiques enhance the richness of the Mansion.

88th Birthday

4.0 on January 26, 2017

On January 18th 2017 brought my mother to Chambersburg to celebrate her brother's 88th Birthday. We've made the trip before and usually grab two rooms in a motel near the Interstate. Decided to change it up a little as we could for the same price stay in the Craig's Suite with its two rooms. So glad we did. It was very cozy and welcoming. Had the house to ourselves this night and took the hosts offer up to explore--- so many very cool rooms. Got out for a run in the lovely neighborhood and on campus of Wilson College across the street. For horse lovers, check out their large equestrian center. The house had lovely furnishings and a piano if guests want to entertain. Also loved the cookies left for guests and the unexpected libations for night caps. Wonderful change to the motel routine and will definitely do this again!


Wonderful B&B!

Barb and Roger are a fabulous couple, who make you feel like one of their family. The rooms are spacious and clean, beds are comfortable! The house is beautiful. We stayed a week for our daughters graduation from Wilson College and it was close to the campus. It was very relaxing.

First time at a Bed and Breakfast

5 on April 28, 2016

I was needing a place to stay for the weekend while participating in a stressful clinical evaluation. It was my first time trying at a Bed and Breakfast. The home is gorgeous, very Victorian with a subtle pleasant smell. Roger and Barb were very accommodating and even had a delicious breakfast ready both mornings early. I was able to relax on the front porch in the evening. I would highly recommend it over the other accommodations in town. The location is central for Chambersburg and easy access to 81.


A nice alternative to the normal overnight stay

The house is beautiful and sprawling with plenty of room to unwind or catch up on the day's work. Barbara and Roger are gracious hosts and very friendly company. You will love the breakfast - soooo good!

Such an eye for detail. Beautiful home.

Such a beautiful B&B. Walking into this home I felt like I was in the late 1800's. Everything detail was impeccable. The hosts made you feel like you have known them your entire life. So personal and friendly. My boyfriend wasn't feeling well and they did what ever they could to make him comfortable. Hope to come back in a few months. Thank you and God Bless!!


Wonderful stay in Chambersburg PA

We really enjoyed everything about the Craig Victorian Bed and Breakfast. We had two spacious and comfortable rooms. Roger and Barb made our stay welcoming and we will come back when we visit the area again.
