“Surprisingly nice”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

An older home, rescued after having been an abandoned rectory, redone as a B&B. Don't expect luxury. This is a working class, blue collar area and this is solidly there and wonderful in its glory. You will be comfortable sitting in the parlor with friends and chatting. The gourmet breakfast definitely lives up to its name. We had creme brûlée French toast, local sausage, three pepper frittata and warm, fresh crumb topped banana muffins. Debbie is a really good cook! Thank you for a wonderful visit.

This is for those wishing to stay in luxury while experiencing the historical roots that tie into the heart of Johnstown. Upon our arrival, Mary Ann graciously welcomed us in and gave us a complete tour of the house. In keeping with this gracious hospitality, she then offered us late afternoon snacks and refreshments after our long drive from upstate NY. Unfortunately, I could not fully experience the magic of Johnstown but through these rooms I could feel the heart of the town as its wonderful history was on display for all to see. The homemade breakfast is the icing on the cake or the shine to this diamond. I wanted to expand my horizons in time for a college visit to Mount Aloysius and I did it here where the warmth of Mary Ann, the wonderful hospitality, the history of Johnstown, & luxury come together to truly make this bed & breakfast one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had.

Room Tip: The Irish Room transports you from the streets of America back to the fields of the Emerald Isle

We spent a Sunday night at the inn while visiting Johnstown. We were greeted on arrival by Mary Ann who gave us a tour and offered us late afternoon snacks and drinks. She recommended the Franklin Street Bar and Grille for a casual dinner and we enjoyed our meal. We visited the Heritage and Flood Museums, the Wagner-Ritter House, the National Park in South Fork (where the dam burst) and rode the Inclined Plane. Everything was very interesting and staying at the charming Heritage House Inn enhanced our stay. The rooms are all lovely - we enjoyed the Chesapeake Room. Breakfast was delicious and was as described in other reviews.

Great place to stay if you want the cozy feeling of being home. We had stayed over a weekend and had a wonderful experience! From the home cooked breakfasts and the hospitality I felt like we were staying with family. Very warm and welcoming! I would highly recommend to anyone looking for something different from a hotel stay!

This is NOT for those looking for a fancy B&B with 4 poster beds and a parlor full of dustables. But . .do book a room here if you'd like an afternoon high tea meet and great with cold beer or an exceptional breakfast with home baked cassaroles. Staying at the Heritage House Inn fulfills the reason you stay at a B&B rather than a chain motel.

We held our 2012 American Mantrailing, Police & Work Dog Association Pennsylvania State Workshop in New Stanton, PA. We stayed at the Heritage House Inn Bed & Breakfast. When we planned our trip we discussed just getting a room in New Stanton because of the hour drive each day to the training site. But the Bed & Breakfast had already been mentioned to us. So we drove to Johnstown and what a wonderful experience it was. Dennis and Ginny Fitzpatrick greeted us and made us feel like a part of their family. I stayed in the Iron Horse Room and was very well pleased. Everything was clean and beautifully decorated. The Inn was peaceful and had Hi Speed Internet which allowed me to keep up with my work. The breakfast was great each morning i woke to the smell of breakfast on the table. The next day on the training site several participants complained about the motel in New Stanton that they stayed in.. This made me very glad we chose to stay at the Heritage House Inn Bed & Breakfast... I have stayed in more motels than I want to count over my 23 years of traveling across the country and I will tell you that this is the first time I was ever treated like family... I appreciate everything the Fitzpatrick's done to make our stay absolutely wonderful. Then I find out they have a Bed & breakfast in Titusville Florida called the Casa Coquina Bed & Breakfast. I cant wait until we travel south and I assure you we will book a room with them...... Tony M. Keith - President AMPWDA

I am a native of Johnstown, but one who had never had the opportunity to visit the Johnstown Flood Museum, the National Flood Memorial near South Fork, nor the Heritage Museum in Cambria City. My grown daughter and I made this weekend visit (June 1-3) only one day after the 123rd anniversary of the Johnstown Flood. In addition to the three museums, we were also able to attend the Annual Polkafest, which was within walking distance of the Inn, and to ride the Johnstown Inclined Plane, which was celebrating its 121st anniversary on June 2nd. We were impressed with the museums and would have liked to have had at least one more day to explore, but we really maximized the little time we had by having our home base at the Heritage House. Its central location made getting around quite easy and parking was a breeze. Just as important was the charming atmosphere of HH and the friendly hospitality of the innkeepers, Ginny and Dennis, and their friend, Mary Ann, who acted as their stand-in hostess for most of the weekend and is an absolute treasure. She was waiting for our arrival and let us know from the moment we arrived that she was pleased to be of service to us. May Ann provided us with a quick tour complete with bits of history, pleasant conversation, and delicious food, including hors d'oeuvres in the late afternoons and hearty gourmet breakfasts in the mornings, ready when we were. We quickly felt as is she has been a long-time friend.

We stayed in the Chesapeake, an enormous room with a king-sized bed and a lovely day bed in the alcove (not currently shown in the two photos on this site). The room is charming and quite comfortable. We booked it to include a private bath. We felt right at home, and although we did not use the sitting room or game room, we might have done so if we had had more time. There is a grill for guests to use in the fenced-in yard with outdoor seating available. We enjoyed walking a bit in the neighborhood and felt safe, even at night. We have stayed at numerous hotels/motels, but had never experienced a Bed and Breakfast until last weekend. It was a special place to stay for a special weekend return to my roots after four decades. Our experience at Heritage House was an excellent one. We would stay here again if we return in the future. Thank you, Fitzpatricks and Mary Ann. We had a great stay! Lin and Erin

Room Tip: The Garden Room is available on the first floor if climbing stairs is an issue.
