Blair Mountain Bed & Breakfast
Table Of Contents
Welcome to Blair Mountain Bed & Breakfast, a beautifully restored, circa 1767 farmhouse with many renovations and accommodating qualities, just right for Carlisle bed and breakfast lodging. We are located just minutes from Carlisle, Gettysburg, York and Harrisburg on the very scenic Blair Mountain in Dillsburg, PA - tucked away in the woods, yet close to many attractions and shopping areas.
Our Pennsylvania bed and breakfast consists of 4 uniquely decorated rooms, all with PRIVATE baths and peaceful decks in the quiet woods are certain to be a welcome change from typical hotel accommodations. Our renovated & updated inn is set in a beautifully wooded area.
A restful night's sleep will have you feeling relaxed and ready to go out and enjoy your day! Awaken to a hearty breakfast and possibly a deer grazing on the lawn!
During the afternoon, munch on homemade goodies, enjoy refreshing beverages, relax in the common room while viewing the wooded backdrop, sit on the two-tiered deck, or visit many local attractions. Whatever your choice, you will want to come back again and again!
Blair Mountain B&B is that perfect location in central Pennsylvania for your office meeting or all-day conference! Breakfast & other services are available upon request.
For your Summer Enjoyment we now offer Kayaking down the Yellow Breeches! Call for details!
A memorable & beautiful venue for that Wedding or Reception! A mountainous & wooded backdrop for your special Wedding!
Travelers are always looking for memorable and relaxing experiences. Let’s discover more through the words of our innkeepers. Many thanks to Tracie Yergo for sharing her own secrets with BBOnline.com! Why do most travelers stay at your inn?
Most travelers stay here because of vacationing in the area. For now, it's mostly skiers since I'm 3.7 miles from Roundtop. But I am only with 30 minutes or so from Hershey, Harrisburg, York, Carlisle & Lancaster.
What are you best known for? What makes your inn unique? What do you love most about your inn?
I guess I'm known for being very hospitable, according to my reviews!! The inn is known for being quiet, relaxing & peaceful!! I guess what I love about my B&B is that it is located in the mountains of Dillsburg! Very serene, yet close to many attractions, restaurants & shopping areas!
If someone has never been to your city, what is the #1 reason to come visit?
Probably the #1 reason is Roundtop Mountain Resorts! Then, we are close to many attractions.
What’s the best compliment you have ever received about the inn?
The best compliment is how "clean" it is and "quiet"!
What’s the best kept secret about the area?
The best kept secret is that many find out how many things are nearby to visit!! We have farmer's markets, antiques, state park, Appalachian trail, skiing, etc.
If a traveler is staying at your inn for 4 nights, what should he/she do in the area?
If someone is staying 4 nights, they usually make a prominent dinner reservation, which I usually recommend, go antique shopping, skiing or hiking, go to museums & Hersheypark/Chocolateworld, Indian Echo Caverns, Lancaster Amish country, Carlisle Car shows, etc.
Is there anything within walking distance of your inn?
The only thing within walking distance is a walking track up at the soccer field!
What is your favorite restaurant/food in the area?
My favorite restaurant for fine dining is the Boiling Springs Tavern. For a great fresh hamburger & fresh cut French fries is The Pickle Nickel in Dillsburg.
Any good area guides/websites that travelers could reference?
I have many guides, such as the Hershey/Harrisburg Regional Visitor's bureau guide, York City. CVB guide, Carlisle Downtown guide, Lancaster CVB guides, local antique guides, Pinchot State Park guide, local theatre guides, and more.

Awards and Accolades
"A quiet respite for those who love the mountains. What a serene setting in the woods, with wildlife out every window! The rooms are tastefully decorated, and Laura's Suite is exquisite!
