Reviewed 12 January 2014

My fiance and I have now stayed at the Golden Eagle Inn twice, once in the Oralee Room, and once in the Mary Espy room, while in Bedford to visit family. We had a wonderful experience during both visits. The hosts, Mary Jane and Tom, were so welcoming and friendly. The first stay was during a post-Thanksgiving trip, the first weekend in December. The Inn was freshly decorated for the holidays with live greenery and a grand Christmas tree greeted us at the entrance. We were shown to our room (the Oralee), where the fireplace had already been lighted for us, and our accommodations felt fresh, clean, and very cozy. After settling in, we had dinner in the dining room, which was charming with it's period decor, high ceilings, and lighted fireplaces. It was difficult to choose from such an enticing menu. I settled on a Harvest Salad with Pan roasted chicken that absolutely melted in your mouth. Tom suggested a wine to accompany our meal that was a perfect pairing. The chefs came out to our table to visit and were happy to talk about the menu. You can tell for the staff of the Golden Eagle, their work is truly a passion for them. We didnt wake early enough for the complimentary breakfast the next morning, but were delighted to order from their brunch menu. I recall delicious hash, bacon, eggs, and toast. After visiting with family for a while even returned for a late lunch before departing. The Chef burger is out of this world. Needless to say, when we returned for a New Years visit, we again chose to stay at the Golden Eagle. Their New Years Eve menu offered a great variety of food and our local family members joined us for the meal, and some stayed for the live entertainment. We were met with the same charm, warmth, cleanliness, and service during our New Years visit. We even ended up staying an additional night due to an ice storm and they were happy to accommodate us. We are looking forward to future trips to Bedford and the Golden Eagle Inn.

Room Tip: Both the Oralee and the Mary Espy are wonderful rooms for a romantic Getaway. Choose the Oralee if...

Had a wonderful experience. The hosts Tom and Mary Jane were pleasant and made sure everything was to our liking. The rooms were clean and comfy. We had a fireplace on one visit which was very romantic. The dining available at The Golden Eagle Inn was the superb and is beyond any fine dining experience you would have anywhere. Hats off to the Chefs.

Will stay there as often as possible when visiting the area.

Room Tip: Book Early

Our first stay, was impressed with the atmosphere, cleanliness, and attention to detail of our room. Kind and welcoming hosts, fine service without being too close. Well-proportioned, yummy breakfast!

My wife and I stayed at the Golden Eagle Inn New Years Eve and a had a blast. We didn't really know what to expect since we had never been to Bedford but the inn and town itself is extremely nice. The inn is a great location right in the hub of historic downtown Bedford and it is only about a 1.5 miles from the Bedford Springs Resort if you are going to be around there at all.

Tom and has wife were marvelous hosts and the our room (The Oralee) definitely exceeded our expectations with a gas fireplace, private bathroom, high ceilings, nice windows etc. We also had New Years Eve dinner at the inn which made or room half-price which is a fantastic deal. During the dinner they had great live music featuring mostly traditional Irish songs and some bluegrass music which was good enough that we stayed for hours after we ate. The food at dinner and the breakfast the next morning were both top-notch with my wife even claiming that her NY Strip at dinner was one of the best meals of her life.

The Golden Eagle was truly superb B and B experience. If you're looking for an excellent place to stay and/or eat when in you're in the heart of downtown Bedford this is perfect option.

Room Tip: They all seem really nice from what we saw.

The Golden Eagle Inn is a friendly and comfortable place to stay in a truly excellent location: right near all the historic buildings, antique stores and restaurants in downtown Bedford. We parked our car behind the inn and hardly had any use for it. The owners are exceptionally nice and greeted our family of four us with a bucket of bottled waters and two bags of wonderful caramel corn from Bedford Candies, just up the street. They were also very accommodating of our 5 and 7-year old children and the room was spotlessly clean. Overall, a great find.

This was our third stay this year at the Golden Eagle Inn. The only reason I gave them a 5 was because 6 was not an option. I took my entire family including grandkids, to Bedford for the Old Bedford Village Christmas Lights (which was also fantastic).The hospitality of Mary Jane, Tom and the rest of the crew was great. Our rooms were all that we hoped (we had 6 rooms). Tom was extremely helpful in setting up rooms to accommodate my wife and I and 4 children with their kids (15 in all).
We ate dinner in the restaurant and they were able to care for a variety of tastes. Misty did a great job taking care of us. The food was phenomenal. When we arrived back after the Christmas Lights at Bedford Village, a great duo was playing Irish and contemporary music. The kids certainly outlasted their parents. Even the young grandchildren were dancing to the music. We could not have asked for a better stay

I've been to Bedford, PA many times to visit friends but this was my first time staying at a B&B there. And I couldn't have picked a more perfect place to stay than the Golden Eagle Inn. My room was cozy and cute, clean and comfortable, and nice and warm on a very cold wintry night. My hosts, Mary Jane and Tom, were super friendly but not overly chatty (that's my only worry about B&Bs - I've been to some where the hosts talk your ear off throughout breakfast - and happily that did not happen here). Breakfast was delicious, delightful and kept me full until dinnertime. The house itself is just gorgeous - very well-maintained and beautifully decorated. I highly recommend the Golden Eagle Inn and look forward to returning in the future.
