Choosing a bed-and-breakfast over a hotel is the best way to get a more personal experience when you are away from home. Every bed-and-breakfast is unique, but no matter which one you stay in, you can expect a delicious breakfast to start your day. In York, Pennsylvania, you'll find some wonderful bed-and-breakfasts. Several occupy the historical buildings in the area, offering a warm and welcoming stay along with some local history.

The Emig Mansion Bed and Breakfast

The Emig Mansion Bed and Breakfast sits on the property that was once the Emig family farm. The patriarch, Valentine, purchased the property in 1802 and later passed it on to John Jr., his grandson. John Jr. built the Emig Mansion on the homestead and lived there with his family working as a farmer and entrepreneur. 

John became the local railroad agent and ran a lime production business using the railroad to transport his product. In addition to these jobs, he also held several other titles and ran more than one business, becoming one of the most influential businessmen in the area. 

After the Emig family was gone, the mansion fell into disrepair. A local realtor restored the home in the 1980s, and it has been a bed-and-breakfast ever since. Each of the guest rooms has its own unique charm. They are named after the Emig children that lived in the home in the 1800s, and all rooms have authentic antique furniture and reproductions. 

Each morning, a home-cooked breakfast awaits guests at the Emig Mansion. In the warm months, you can take it out on the Victorian porch.

Grace Manor Bed and Breakfast

You'll find Grace Manor in downtown York, Pennsylvania. Each of the rooms has a unique theme. The inn's proprietor and designer thoughtfully created each room and designed them to give guests a relaxing and welcoming feel.

Lady Linden Bed and Breakfast

History buffs will enjoy a stay at the luxurious Lady Linden Bed and Breakfast. It sits in an 1887 Queen Anne-style Victorian home.

He and his partner Walker A. Dromgold built their homes next to each other and raised their families together. 

The historic home now features unique guest rooms. The Grecian Room is elegant with a warm and welcoming feeling. It has a queen-sized bed, a writing table, and easy chairs for relaxing.
