Stayed at the Briar Rose with my girlfriend in January. The B&B was decorated for Valentine's Day. They really go all out! Stuffed animals and hearts everywhere. Everything from rose petals on the bed, to towels shaped as swans made our stay one to remember. Lisa and Jim, the owners, seemed like long lost friends. They didn't see us as...

My wife, daughter and I recently stayed at the Briar Rose during Penn State's Homecoming weekend. This was our first visit to the Briar Rose. The owners are genuinely gracious and welcoming - concerned with exceeding every expectation of your stay (and they do!)... Their beautiful home is magically transformed into a Halloween paradise... We were blown away by the...

Great stay at the Briar Rose B&B for 2 nights. Hosts Lisa & Jim are just wonderful. Stayed in the "Jacuzzi" bedroom which also has a toilet & sink, as well as a private balcony. Bed was super comfy. The house & all rooms were decorated for autumn/Halloween and looked awesome. Breakfast both mornings was delicious. I liked that you...

This was our first visit to the Briar Rose B&B and it exceeded our expectations in every way. The room was clean and comfortable and it was decorated so beautifully for fall. The breakfast was homemade and tasted delicious, with caramel apple Belgian waffles, egg/bacon cassoulet, scones and the beverage of our choice. But the best feature of this adorable...

We had a lovely time at the Briar Rose B&B! Owners are very kind and the room we stayed in (Gazebo Room) offered a private bathroom. They thought of every detail when designing their B&B and it added a lot of additional value to our stay. Be prepared for interesting and inspiring conversations with both Jimmy&Lisa, as well as other...

First off, I travel to Reedsville for business periodically and stay at a hotel chain. Well, this time I scheduled my trip and I could only get a hotel for the first part of the week as the hotel was totally booked. I decided to get here and I could find "something" at that time. Little did I know at...

I loved staying at this vintage Pennsylvania home in Reedsville PA. I traveled to Reedsville with my 91 year old mother to attend a reunion with the descendants of one of her 7 brothers.
