Boiling Springs, PA is a charming, U.S. town near the PA Turnpike Carlisle and Harrisburg.) The rolling hills and fishing pond resemble a Norman Rockwell scene from the 1950’s. We elected a B & B over a chain motel, and were rewarded with an excellent overnight visit at Gelinas Manor. Gelinas Manor is near the center of Boiling Springs, PA;...

My husband and I stayed 2 nights in the 3rd floor suite. It would be perfect for a small family, featuring 2 bedrooms, a nice sitting area, kitchenette and hundreds of books. Lee and Kitty were gracious hosts, and the home's decor - though slightly dated - is cozy with warm family mementos. Breakfast was unusual, well-thought out, and delicious....

Came to do a little hiking on the AT. snow and no boots prevented that, so we mostly waited for the ice to go away. Breakfasts were served at 8:30 and were quite creative and good. The rooms were all a bit different. For lack of a better term, we stayed in the library. Spacious and comfortable. We were super...

I am hiking the AT and decided to stay at Gelina's Manor. When I arrived, I was not allowed to bring my backpack (my home for 6-months) inside. I was made to enter the rear of the home. Leo the owner showed me to my room and took the comforter off the bed when we entered. Two other hikers called...

After spending 6 months on the trail - we do not allow theses dirty packs in our home. true. Removing the spread on arrival - also true The balance of this review is so far from the truth that it does not warrent a reply.

The Gelinas Manor is a lovely old house in a historic town and is situated across the street from a pond and a park and is within walking distance of the Applachian Trail. Our room was spotless and the three course gourmet breakfasts were out of this world. Our hosts Lee and Kitty were gracious and helpful in obtaining us...

Innkeeper was friendly on arrival but he never introduced himself so we weren't sure who he was. We didn't get a physical or verbal tour other than to room so we weren't sure which areas were public/private. Our room was fine, but so full of "victorian" memento's it felt crowded rather than restful. No hairdryer in bathroom & I felt...

Victorian house, but room had old, uncomfortable contemporary style furniture. Bed was uncomfortable. Window air conditioner loud and ineffective. Hostess very rude. Breakfast small, bland, and ordinary. Better to stay at Allenberry or in Carlisle.

Stayed here to go skiing at SkiRoundtop. Nice people with spacious, clean room and bathroom. Only issue with room was uncomfortable bed. Breakfasts were creative and tasty. This was our first bed and breakfast experience, and we decided, to no fault of this place, that we're hotel people--staying in someone's house in a tiny town wasn't our thing. If you...

I was a little concerned about staying here because of a bad review I read. I decided to take a chance and stayed here for four nights with my wife and two children. I found Lee and Kitty to be very accommodating and not rude in the slightest. The food was very good as well. We experienced no problems whatever.

“Do not choose a room here at all! I did take some REAL photos to show those that I know that stay at B&B's to make sure this is not on their list. I will also be contacting all Professional Organizations that they have listed so that there is an inspection there as to the safety of the place.”
