Great Breakfast

5 on July 28, 2017

We stayed at the Burgandy Lane Inn for 1 night on a trip to Blue Ridge Summit. Based on the reviews on-line we decided to book our stay. We had a wonderful time. Our hosts, Dave and Margaret, immediatley made us feel right at home. The next morning for breakfast we were served eggs benedict; what a treat. My husband had never tried before; he is now hooked!

Innkeeper Response
We're glad to have been able to extend his breakfast tastes with Margaret's Eggs Benedict! We had a wonderful time chatting with you over breakfast and hope you will come back to stay with us the next time you are in the area.

Super Clean, Clean, Clean

And charming. All rooms have their own theme. We stayed in "Out of Africa". Bed felt like new, decor authentic with a warm and cozy feel. Location great for Cunningham Falls (about 25 min). The next day we traveled about an hour to Harper's Ferry. Also close to Gettysburg and Antietam, plus the Appalachian trial. If you have any questions about history and things to do in the surrounding area the owners are extremely knowledgeable! Delicious breakfast in the morning. Excellent price and far superior to the average hotel and breakfast.

I stayed here during a section hike of the AT. They are lovely people to visit with and their services are excellent. I'm sure I'll hike through this area again and would definitely stay with them again. Thanks for the wonderful hospitality!

Can't wait to come back!!

My first B&B experience, but it won't be my last!! I plan on making this a Mother's Day tradition - leaving home, staying with David, Margaret & Sunny, and soaking in the beauty of the landscape and antique shopping! Everything from their gracious patience as I showed up VERY late Friday night to checking in with me on Saturday night (after a marathon 6-hours of shopping and 4-hour nap!) to know what time I'd like breakfast, everything about my stay was warm, inviting, and satisfying!! The breakfasts were phenomenol, the bed so comfortable it was hard to leave...

Getaway near the AP Trail

5 on July 10, 2014

My husband and I enjoyed a weekend getaway in southern Pennsylvania over the July 4th weekend. The Innkeepers, David and Margaret won our hearts with their service and most of all with their hospitality. From the get go, they welcome everyone with open arms. The AP thru hikers know this is a good place to take a zero day or take a slack pack moment. They have rooms at every level and the amenities are spot on. Children are welcomed and bring a smile when they see Sunny, the corgi. We look forward to returning this fall.

Continuing our honeymoon

5 on July 04, 2014

My wife and I were very pleased with our stay at Burgundy Lane this past June, 2014. Every year we chose a different bed and breakfast to continue our honeymoon. This year we chose the Honeymoon suite at Burgundy Lane. What a great place to stay! The furnishings were perfect and the Jacuzzi was wonderful! The hosts were very accommodating and friendly. You'll be glad you chose to stay at Burgundy Lane.

A Treasure

5 on June 01, 2014

We discovered Burgundy Lane while planning a recent trip to Gettysburg. What a treat. It was like visiting friends for the weekend. BL is beautifully decorated. We stayed in the "Out of Africa" room. It was fun yet tasteful and full of interesting details that reflected the theme of the room. We had a private porch. Every need was addressed. The flat screen TV and the bathroom were modern and in good working order. The room temperature was comfortable and the linens were exquisite. Margaret and David are very welcoming. David gave us an excellent recommendation for dinner. Breakfast was delicious and the table setting was luxurious. If all B and Bs are the Burgundy Lane standard we will never stay in a hotel again.

Beautiful Beds, Delectable Breakfast

4.8 on May 11, 2014

I had to arrive at 10 pm, and was greeted by the sweetest corgi, and Margaret and Dave's warm smiles. The room was impeccable and well-equipped, no detail overlooked, down to chocolates at the desk, showercaps in the bathroom, and a lighted make-up mirror. Breakfast was a special experience: the dishes were both beautiful and delectable. But the best of it was that, due to our schedule, we had to eat by 7 am, and be gone by 8. They went to bed late and woke up early to accommodate us, and graciously.

Best Bed and Breakfast we have stayed in yet

5 on April 26, 2014

Dave and Margaret have taken care of all of the little details that make your stay wonderful. With each room having their own bathroom you can truly relax as you would at home. The decor is not only delightful to look at but helps to make each room cozy in its own special way. The bed and pillows were better than what we have in our own home! Within walking distance of the bed and breakfast is Christine's Cafe and Gourmet Coffee where you can have a casual fine dining experience while enjoying a wonderful atmosphere.
