Harrisburg is much nicer than I thought Great experience, great location, great building We’re met by the owners, who was very helpful and friendly. This is what a Bed and Breakfast should be, Furnished with someone who had a great eye. For breakfast my wife said it was the best French Toast she ever had If you bring a bike there is a long bike/walking/running path along the River right in front of the inn. Highly recommend
Not like any other B&B we've ever been to. You're on your own

We visit for four days. Bed was comfy, room was clean and large walk in shower was great. Breakfast was great. Best French Toast I've ever had. What this place is missing is the personal touch we're used to. Check-in and checkout are handled by email. Admission to one manor building is by a code on a keypad. To the manor building where breakfast is swrved, you access it with a fob swiped across a pad. You must choose a specific time to appear for breakfast and choose your meal the day before by placing your order in a basket in the livingroom. If you need anything, you must call the main tel#. There is no book of instructions in the room. We had no one offer fresh towels or toilet paper and we didn't mind making our own bed. When we called for TP and washcloths, the man was surprised that no service had been provided. On a couple of occasions we called the main# and reached voicemail. It seems the new owners come from the West coast so we thought we were receiving a spam call when it was a call from area code 206. Most people we !at at breakfast were there for 1 night and were quite happy with their visit. We felt it was too automated and missed the human, personal connection of every B&B we've ever stayed at. It's a lovely place but we won't return.
Over the Top. Exceed Expectations.

Owner's love and care of her customers and their comfort comes thru. The breakfast omelet, jams, sausage, pastries - 5 stars. And how often do you find crystal water glass? We will definitely be repeat customers.
Nice place but major issues with check in
Reviewed 14 july, 2022
The check in process was a bit of a nightmare. We were not provided any instruction and upon arrival we scoured the property and finally found another guest who helped us (she also experienced issues at check in). We had to borrow a phone to call the B&B (we’re international guests) and spoke to someone who provided us with an incorrect building code. Finally got inside but if it wasn’t for the other guests, I’m not sure what we would’ve done. We highly recommend that you call them the day before check in and get instructions. Bed was super comfy, the view was great. The room lacked a dresser, which would’ve been great for putting our clothes away (or provide more hangers). Breakfast options for vegetarians was very limited, fruit would’ve been nice so maybe bring some if you want something fresh. Wifi was excellent, air conditioning worked great. Location was ideal.
Nice Properties, But Some Issues
Reviewed 15 june, 2022
There are two adjacent houses here. We stayed for one night in the Mary Sachs House. We have stayed at well over 100 traditional B & B's, and perhaps we tend to be more critical in reviews on B & B's than those who don't have as much experience staying in these properties. The houses are very nice, but there were some pretty big issues for us---the actual rating actually should be 3.5. The location is great----in a nice area right across the street from the Susquehanna River and only a 5 minute drive from downtown Harrisburg. There is ample parking in a paved lot behind the houses. Both houses are very large with nice furnishings, good lighting, and spacious common areas (including a kitchen in our house). Our 2nd floor Bennington Suite was large and airy. It faced a busy street (and the river), so there's some road noise, but not heavy trucks. The bathroom was just average-sized, with a tiny plastic shower. Breakfast was in the lovely dining room of the Ledgestone House, and was good. You have to brave the elements to go for breakfast, and also to take your breakfast order over when you check in. We prefer B & B's where you actually meet a host when you check in, but understand with Covid that some B & B's have changed their process. The issues we had were as follows: ---There was a central thermostat for all the rooms in our house, and it was set too high for us. Our room was too hot overnight, so we didn't sleep that well. ---We were supposed to get an e-mail the day of check-in to give us the code to get in the house. But it was sent to the wrong address, and I had to call in late afternoon to get the code. I got voice mail when I called, but did get a quick response from my voice mail. ---To get into the Ledgestone, you have to scan your key fob at the door. I was never told this. When I went to take the breakfast order over, I couldn't get in, but a worker (maybe the owner) opened the door for me. Unfortunately he didn't say anything about the key fob, so when we went over for breakfast, the door was locked, and I had to go back to our house to call to find out what the deal was, at which time I was informed about the key fob process. Was not happy! ---For some reason there was no side table on one side of our bed---unusual for a luxury property. ---The room has Roku TV with hundreds of channels, but I couldn't find any local news channels, and overall it was a bit hard to find a preferred channel without scrolling through the channel list of hundreds. We didn't see any Roku instructions. ---There was no Wi-Fi info in the room. I finally found a little card in a common area with the necessary information. Why not put these cards in each room? And the card in our house had the Wi-Fi information for the Ledgestone House, not ours (I finally figured out that the Wi-Fi name for the Mary Sachs had the same password as for the Ledgestone). Yes, many of our issues were not major and just simple human error, but they all added up to an experience not up to par with many of the luxury B & B's we've stayed at in the past.
