I was out on a solo trip to the east and this was my first stop along the way. I chose to use many different B & B's, but this one set the bar for others to follow. A great place to stay and awesome service.

This was a really nice, super interesting place to stay for 2 nights. It's a former Tavern, Post office, and living home, built in the late 1700's, that was restored to a quaint, charming, B&B by the current Husband and wife owners. The original flooring is unreal. Just a treat to even walk on. If you love interesting, historical, real-history...

We stayed just one night but would have enjoyed a longer visit! Ed and Barbara were very thoughtful hosts, and our room was spacious and comfortable. Perfect location, pretty gardens -- and Flash the terrier! We'll come back.

We booked into this B&B for a quick get-away, and were delighted. Located at an easy to find crossroads (hence the name), the innkeepers, Barbara and Ed, have done a superb job of maintaining the original architectural integrity of the building, and have furnished it in antiques and handmade reproduction pieces. They have thought of everything, from always available snacks...

So many details have been carefully thought out in this refurbished inn. It combines some original features from 1790 with modern reproductions and updates. The bed was wonderfully firm. There is a jacuzzi in the bathroom tub. The breakfast is cooked to order. I would love to stay here again!

We enjoyed the authentic historical atmosphere that Colonial Crossroads offered while still including tasteful modern appliances. The room was very clean and filled with all the amenities we needed for a pleasant stay. The innkeepers were not overly social, but were very respectful of our privacy. The food and coffee was all delicious and tastefully presented, but was not served...

We were on a long road trip home and needed to find a place to stay and break up our trip. There were all the usual hotel choices near Harrisburg, but we stumbled on the Colonial Crossroads while looking through choices on the web. What a great find! The innkeeper greeted us with a brief orientation to the history of...

We try to stay at B&Bs when we travel, and were delighted to find Colonial Crossroads. We loved the historical accuracy of the restoration but didn't feel like we were in a museum, and were impressed with the efforts the hosts have made to trace the history of the building. The B&B is in a great location - quite close...

We were looking for a weekend get away centrally located since we live on opposite ends of PA. Majority of the Harrisburg/Hershey hotels were booked solid so we opted for a B&B. Being that we have never stayed at a B&B we were a little uncertain of what to expect. Ed and Barb made the experience wonderful. The house is...
