    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!

    There is a parking area behind the house. We have a large pick-up and had no trouble fitting back there along with several other vehicles. There is parking on the street as well; I do not recall any parking meters.
