We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hartzell House and would highly recommend it. One of the reasons I picked this Bnb (in addition to the many positive reviews) was the offer of dinner November-April. We needed a place to stay for a weekend night in early February, and we were driving in from 3 hours away, so the prospect of not having to go anywhere additional was very attractive! Kitty recommended a few nice places nearby in case we felt up to it, and then offered to make us dinner when it became clear that a big storm was moving in.
Since we were the only ones staying there that night, we had a wing to ourselves and she offered us a choice of rooms. We had booked the Artists' Suite which was lovely, but ended up choosing to stay in the more spacious Patriot Suite. The memory foam bed was very comfortable; the decor elegant; the hot water almost instantaneous; the toiletries all high-quality organic and sustainable; the towels plentiful and soft...and the heated floors were a wonderful touch!
Dinner was *delicious*, filling, and also very healthy--a rare treat! We had a private table and candles, music--all the amenities of a fine restaurant. The couch was comfy and the TV and gas fireplace worked well. With our room next to the kitchen and spacious living room, it was like house-sitting for a friend.
We woke to 6" of snow on the ground and watched it continue to fall over an *amazing* breakfast--delicious, healthy, filling, and very creative. (They're coming out with a cookbook soon and I'll definitely be buying it!) When it became clear that the roads weren't yet plowed, they were very flexible about check-out, and even called the local PennDOT office (which is 1/4 mile away) to find out when the roads would be cleared. What could have been a stressful morning turned into a cozy few hours watching the snow taper off, and an easy drive out.
If plans ever allow, we'd love to come back here in warm weather with a group of friends. It's near to many outdoor and cultural attractions, and would be the perfect place to unwind in the evening with a game of pool and glass of wine on the deck.
