The B&Bs located along the I-81 corridor near Carlisle, PA welcome you with warm hospitality.

The Cumberland Valley Bed & Breakfast Association is a collection of authentic Pennsylvania lodging treasures.  Up and down the Cumberland Valley of south central Pennsylvania, innkeepers offer a warm welcome and lots of information about the small towns along the I-81 corridor.  Our Inns are located near Hershey, Harrisburg and Gettysburg. If you are coming to sample chocolate, visit the capital, or experience a taste of Civil War History we can provide a place to rest and relax. Several of our Inns are family and pet friendly so you if you are vacationing with your two or four legged children, we'll be happy to host you.

In Chambersburg, the Union soldier (in bronze) still stands watch to warn of the attack of southern troops before the burning of the town in 1864.  Craig’s Victorian Bed & Breakfast was not in operation at that time, but the innkeepers can direct you to various historic spots in the town. Plan to stay at this B&B if you are visiting Wilson College.

Following north along the highway, Carlisle has arguably the oldest college in the United States. Dickinson College was the first college chartered after our constitution was signed. If you are visiting the college, stay at Pheasant Field B&B, which is conveniently located just one turn off of the main street of town.  Carlisle is also famous for collector cars shows.  Fallen Tree Farm B&B will provide car enthusiasts with quiet, comfortable lodging after a long day at the car flea market and car auction.

Boiling Springs is famous for the spring fed limestone streams which are home to rainbow trout. Gelinas Manor B&B and Red Cardinal B&B will both educate you about great fishing areas and fly shops in the area. If you are here for the outdoors, Boiling Springs is the midway point of the Appalachian Trail. Several of our B&B's are either nearby or will provide pick up service if you are looking for a great place to rest your head for the night. 

If you long for close accommodations while skiing at Roundtop Mountain Resort, be sure to check out Blair Mountain B&B – just 3 miles off the slopes or the summer ropes course!

Following I-81 farther north, the next small town is Mechanicsburg, so named because of all the repair shops for wagons as the original settlers were traveling west.  30 Timber Road Bed & Breakfast looks as if it may have been built during Colonial Williamsburg’s heyday, but the inn is full of luxurious amenities and set in a quiet wooded location.

The Innkeepers provide a wealth of knowledge about the area's historic attractions, antique shops, art galleries, and hiking and biking trails.  You can learn about the many events and attractions within a short drive of each of these Inns by visiting these Visitor Bureaus' websites:  Cumberland Valley Visitors Bureau, Franklin County Visitors Bureau, Hershey Harrisburg Regional Visitors Bureau, and York County Visitors Bureau.
