We are two Anglo-US couples who decided to cycle (some of) the GAP in October 2014. Marianne at the Gingerbread House was wonderful. The B and B is welcoming, well-equipped, with a secure under-the-porch bike store, and felt like a home from home. Who cares if she only takes cash and if the delicious breakfasts offer no choice? This was...

Stayed one night with my wife using this B & B as our home base biking in both directions on the VERY nearby bike trail. Owner does not live on site but does come to greet you upon arrival. She also provided a delicious hot breakfast in the morning. Small issues that kept this property from a 4-5 overall rating....

This was our second trip back to the Gingerbread House. This bed and breakfast inn is within walking distance to the bike trail and is very clean and cozy. I like the fact that the innkeeper does not stay there and you can really relax. In the morning she makes a very nourishing breakfast. She is the sweetest innkeeper along...

Great location off the GAP trail and bike friendly ( bike parking under her porch in closed off space, hose ). Clean and comfortable, but no AC. LOTS of road noise from trucks, and trains of course which is all along the trail. Breakfast is ok, not given many options though She will take a CC for the reservation then...

We LOVED the Gingerbread House! Very cosy, quaint, great porch for settin, nice safe place for bikes, the owner made us an excellent Gluten Free breakfast, including local sausage that was super, a huge meal of eggs, fresh fruit. Our room was delightful. There IS AC, so we were plenty comfortable. There is a train anywhere along the GAP trail,...

We stayed on 8/10/13 while biking the GAP trail, and are glad to have selected the Gingerbread House B&B. The owner was excellent from reservation through check-out. When the support van arrived for luggage, Marianne, the owner, provided coffee to the driver, and showed fine hospitality. We wanted to be on the trail by 0800, and breakfast was stated to...

We'd been bikeriding on the trail all day and got there about 5pm. Cool fall weather, so the lack of AC wasn't noticeable. Very clean and well furnished. Heat by steam radiator. Most of the other guests weren't cyclists--we seemed to have no competition for the bathroom/shower either in the evening or the next morning. I suppose there's a bathroom...

Within sight of the GAP this is one of favorite B&B's. We have pedaled from Pittsburgh to DC and many trips inbetween, but we always look forward to stopping at the Gingerbread House. This wasn't our first time here and it won't be our last. Mary Ann is a great host. She is there for you when you need her,...

The best thing about this property is its proximity to the GAP bike trail. It is also clean. But the rooms are very small and during our July stay were very hot and stuffy. The house is not air conditioned. Opening the windows brought traffic and train noise, but no relief from the heat. Two other negative points for us...

We found the Gingerbread house nicely furnished, clean and it has a great porch. As a biker I appreciate a nice place to put my bottom down after a long day riding. I would have appreciated knowing that this B&B does not have Air Conditioning. Don't stop here if you want a cool stay on a hot summer's night.

“We stayed In Jared's room, which quite possibly has the most comfortable bed ever made. We did, however, have to share a bathroom with two other rooms. This wasn't a problem for us, but there are two rooms available with in-room bathrooms.”
