Waynesboro PA is most definitely NOT a "hot spot" for wild, all-night parties. And it's not a town with a lot of historic charm (there's some, just not a lot). It is, however, a perfect place to get away for some relaxation. If that's your goal, you won't do better than this place. Basically, we got four-star service and ambiance for a two-star price.
Although you pay a budget price, this place is about as far from being a "cookie-cutter" budget lodging as can be imagined. Each room has a unique theme to it, with charming additions for each one. We chose the Castle Room, and were greeted with a suit of armor, a sword, a tapestry next to the bath, a faux fireplace, and a painting of a squire being promoted to knighthood. We loved it!
Our room had a wonderful king bed, full bath, phone, clock-radio, refrigerator, microwave, DVD player, hair dryer, and HD-TV with 96 channels. There were portable mini air conditioners that kept the room comfortable but not greatly cool. The room was clean and well-maintained. Free amenities include parking, wi-fi, iron & board, and a hot breakfast. The latter is served by your hosts on fine china at the time of your choosing, and might be all you need to eat for the day (not a buffet, but definitely deliciously filling).
Like most B&Bs, there is no pool, exercise room, or business area. All rooms are on the second floor, and there is no elevator. Smoking is not allowed anywhere inside the B&B.
A minor disclaimer is that the owners have two small dogs on the premises, and both will greet you as you enter. If you have a dog allergy, beware!
The hosts went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Suggestions for places to visit or eat were freely given, and they were knowledgeable about the main reason I came here: hiking the Appalachian Trail. Need help with what to do in the area -- they are all the guides you'll need!
If you want 24-hour parties at the pool, this place (indeed, this whole area) is NOT for you. If you want to get away and relax for a few days (or longer!), then this place can not be beat.
