Circa 1909. Situated on a hill overlooking the Tuscorora Mountains, the valley and village, this 20,000-square-foot Georgian Revival mansion was built for industrialist Harry Byron. Six massive columns mark the entrance, which opens to a majestic hall featuring chestnut wainscoting and an elegant double stairway and rare scagliola (marbleized) columns. All the rooms are furnished with antiques and reproductions. A local craftsman built the inn's four-poster, canopied king-size beds. Many of the rooms have their own balconies and a few have fireplaces. Thursday through Sunday evening, the inn's chef prepares noteworthy, elegant dinners, which feature an array of seasonal specialties.

Lovely stay at The Mercersburg Inn

My husband and I purchased the iLoveInns bed and breakfast book that offers certificates for buy one night stay/get one night free. That is where we found the Mercersburg Inn. Lisa and Jim honored our certificate. The Inn is beautiful, the hosts very welcoming and gracious, the food absolutely delicious, the game room fun, and the rooms lovely! Our bed was so comfortable we didn't want to wake up! However, we would not have wanted to miss Jim's delicious and delightful breakfasts! We stayed in the Carriage House/North room. We were given a tour of the inn and it is gorgeous! Thanks Jim and Lisa for a wonderful stay!

Not for families, but Great food

Typically, I think of inn keepers as warm, welcoming and friendly........these ones diverge from this notion 180 degrees! The food was great, the rooms pleasant (no acoustic insulation though) but the trip was underscored by the owners who had all the charm and charisma of prison guards. Their rigidity was astonishing. We paid almost $500 for one night ( inclluding dinner), I have never felt so unwelcome in a hotel in my life. We have two boys 7 and 9 years old, who were very well behaved (they were a little excited when we arrived) but they quietly sat and ate dinner with us and were more less seen and not heard. The owners clearly don't want children here, even well behaved ones. We were part of a group of fourteen ( a reunion - adults in their 50s and sixties) I would have hoped for a little more curtesy and accommodation. The staff for the most part and friendly and pleasant, the food was great, but the owners are socially I'll equipped and should have no contact with the patrons.

Romantic Retreat

We stayed at the elegant Mercersburg Inn in Autumn and the trees on the grounds were gorgeous! The "Romantic Retreat" was a cozy room with a fireplace and jacuzzi and a soft, luxurious bed. We enjoyed the large game room and the breakfasts were delicious! We decided to have dinner there one evening and the meal was excellent! We will definitely be back!
