Wanting a mid-way stopping point off I-80 between New Jersey and Cleveland, we chose Bellefonte, PA, and the Reynolds Mansion Bed and Breakfast. Although we've stayed at many bed and breakfasts, some in historical buildings, we were wowed by the Victorian architecture, furnishings and detailed craftsmanship of the Reynolds Mansion. Our genial host Mike explained the house was built in the 1880s for a banker, and it shows -- from carved woodwork to ornate fireplaces. We stayed in the Colonel's Green Room, which true to its name was decorated in green, with all the modern conveniences you could ask for, including a king-sized bed, flat-panel TV, Jacuzzi and air conditioning. For an early dinner, we tried the nearby Gamble Mill Restaurant, where we were welcomed warmly at the bar and enjoyed good food and drink. Although it was only a stop along the way to our ultimate destination, the Reynolds Mansion was one of the highlights of our trip.
