We are repeat customers of the Inn. I can't say enough about the relaxing, peaceful, and enjoyable experience we have every time we stay there. The historic home is beautiful and fascinating. Everything is so warm and inviting. We look forward to the comfy beds and delicious breakfast in the morning . We always dine in the restaurant and the food as usual was wonderful. Can't wait to return for another visit in the near future!
My husband and I stayed at the Mercersburg Inn for our anniversary and had a wonderful experience. We frequent many bed and breakfasts and this is definitely our favorite so far. Lisa, the owner, was great and made us feel right at home. She even gave us a tour of the building along with telling about its history, and later pulled up two chairs to the fireplace after we had dinner at their restaurant (food was exceptional, by the way). The rest of the staff was fantastic as well. Although we aren't skiers, we saw several other guests leave for the nearby Whitetail Ski Resort. The following morning we were served a delicious three-course breakfast. Overall we had a wonderful, quiet and relaxing stay and look forward to our next visit.

My husband and I have attended a French Cooking Weekend at the Mercersburg Inn for 17 years. We keep coming year after year because the Inn is clean, rooms attractive, staff super-accommodating and the French cooking classes delicious and fun. Our stay at the Mercersburg Inn is a relaxing highlight of our year.
