We were in town for a concert at Mohegan Sun. Cecilia and Gordon were wonderful hosts. They served a delicious 3 course breakfast and shared fun stories of the area. Would definitely stay there again!

We were in town to attend a concert at the Kirby Theater and had decided to do a B&B instead of a hotel. We are so glad we did. Loved the charm of the home. The breakfast was a delight! We enjoyed the 3 other couples who shared breakfast with us. However the very best part was our hosts Cecelia...

We stayed two nights at Hillard House in June 2016. The Gold Room was very comfortable, clean, and well decorated. Gordon and Cecelia were very gracious hosts. They were understanding about our later than expected arrival and Gordon was outside helping us with luggage before we were completely out of the car. Cecelia prepared wonderful gourmet breakfasts which we thoroughly...

Cecelia and Gordon were gracious hosts in this 1865 mansion on the Susquehanna River. Room was spacious and well appointed - interesting to note that this was their residence prior to becoming a B+B - no wonder we felt like guests!

I don't mind old places if they're clean and don't have that old smell. Hilliard House fits the bill. Great bed and linens...super comfortable! Super nice inn keepers, too! Very well maintained and clean. If you want character, but want modern amenities like tv and in room coffee, you'll love Hilliard House!

Thank you for your lovely review of the Hillard House Inn.At 151 years old,the Inn does have some age on her but we think,like you, that she carries it extremely well.
