We stayed at the Hillard House for a recent weekend away to visit friends in the Wilkes-Barre area, and had a lovely time. The house is beautiful, yet comfortable, with welcoming common areas. We benefited from the exquisite vintage mini-elevator, as I was on crutches following surgery. While I had to navigate the few stairs up to the front of the house, it could not have been easier to get up and down from the room. This was a major plus for us, as we love B&Bs, but most of the time you have to deal with many stairs.
We stayed in the Gold Room, which was comfortable, spacious and quiet. My husband and I both found the mattress soft, but I'm sure it wouldn't bother most people - we have a personal preference for firm mattresses.
Cecilia and Gordon were unbelievably helpful. Right from the start when I emailed them with questions, they were responsive and friendly. My husband has some complicated dietary restrictions which Cecilia took in her stride, providing us both with delicious breakfasts. They voluntarily printed us out directions to various locations we were visiting and gave us great advice on nearby local restaurants.
We were also happy to find out that they are ok with having kids stay, as so many B&Bs aren't. We may well be back with our little one (due in 3 months).
