Colonial Crossroads B&B is located in scenic Mechanicsburg and will transport you back in time to the 1700's when this historic tavern was built. While this B&B has all the modern amenities you're looking for, you'll still find primitive antiques, hardwood plank floors and fireplaces. It is close to great outdoor recreation like fly-fishing, kayaking and skiing, but is still near a variety of restaurants and attractions.
